Nepotism?

Trump provides for his family members paychecks from the coffers of America's tax payers. Isn't that fairly obvious nepotism?

No, because they are obviously very qualified people.

Nepotism is when you get your ne'er-do-well crackhead child multi-million dollar consulting jobs with foreign powers you are tasked to diplomacize.

Wait, is this a serious question?

Pedro! Fancy meeting you here.

Sorry about being so insensitive to your struggles with sobriety. That was certainly an example of poor form and I can't blame you for your reaction.

My friend, the struggle was when I was drinking. As you know.

Oh, one has struggles these days, like anyone. But honestly it's a field of daisies.

Now, some honesty regarding the subject you brought up: too much to ask?

I smoke tobacco so yeah, I can sympathize with addiction. I'm still trying to quit.

Nix both your notions of possession and friend.

What exactly are the qualifications you believe they have. Take a look at Trumps appointments as ambassadors and what Trump believes are qualifications.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_St ... nald_Trump.

I do not give him any more credit for his family appointees.

I grok you're all capitalistically bent. I am not. My wife and I have managed survival without ever having to depend on State or federal aid. I will not pay another to pay taxes on their services when I can do the job better myself. I think Sting is an incredible musician. Still not worth his weight in salt. Do I care about the lifestyles of the rich and famous. No. Shit, do you have have an idea what our media outlets have devolved into? Our local outlet of the Fox network airs "professional" wrestling for capitalistic sake. You are a rock, one wastes his time convincing a rock it is subject to erosion.

At best you are a human being which entitles you to an opinion, most of which I have read. You and I do have one thing in common... as full of shit you are I can be, mathematically reciprocally experienced.

Nothing you have exampled speaks of kinship with me. Don't bother with the political formality.

Just another example of a capitalist sticking their head in the sand. Despite every obvious contradiction you will portray it dishonestly.

In retrospect, given the tone of your declared departure, I really didn't expect to see you again.

Life is weird like that. Glad to see you aren't pretending to be on "team capitalism" anymore.

It is strange like that. If you believed I was ever on team capitalism your eyes weren't open. I am not interested at all in the accumulation of wealth. We have prepared, cognizant of the opposition. Each of our political decisions is cognizant of the responsibility of being prepared.

Don't prepare and you are ignorant. Capitalism isn't going to rescue anyone. It doesn't provide for the common good, it will never be the solution to what it causes. Do not stop on go. You have not earned a pass.
Such a fucked up sensibility you have.

Half tempted to post a really sensual ad for alcohol consumption. Well in actuality I'm less then half way tempted. shrug. Idiots of ignorance is not a club I want to join. Given that, do not ever refer to me as friend. Bulls shit. You are one twisted fuck in the britches.

Ah, that is the weight of your word then.

Or maybe I did miss something.

It's almost a socialist state in the Trump family. But it doesn't look much like an exchange of ability for need...or is that communistic? Trump plays religion so it must be socialism.

One hardly could accuse the trump family of being fugal.

And yes, we are ignoring the glaring fact that a crackhead rascal given a multi million dollar consulting job with a foreign power, which was a presidential candidate's job to handle careful diplomatic negotiations with, does not even concern you.

Tell me something moke-a...


As childish as Trump.

The OP was nepotism...Trump? If you lack the discipline to stay on topic. Try harder.

Blah blah blah blah blah.

You aren't a torment and have you got a point to make that Trump giving jobs to his kids and sticking the tax payers with the bill isn't nepotism? No skin off your back.

So far you've added the thought they are qualified...

... for what?

Listen Mo, Monooq, Von Rivers, whatever your name is. The slime that drips off you makes me want to puke, but it drips off millions others like you. You want to be on "team capitalism" because you don't want to contradict the mechanisms that you know brought you whatever miserable joy you have in your life, but you also want the warm fuzzy feelings the marxists get so you adopt all the marxist positions. You are on "team capitalism" but you argue land property. You "hate nepotism" but Trump's children have proven themselves through decades of work and were a perfectly sensible hire, but to even talk about this is to miss the fact that a gapiongly obvious actual instance of nepotism, the favouring of family with influence gained from public office, doesn't even stop youy for a millisecond. Why? It's not about logic, or thinking, or responsibility. Responsibility for your thoughts, for your actions. It's about dem


warm

fuzzy

feelings


You disgust me

Leisure is the basis of culture, and advocating for leisure is not distinctly capitalistic.
Capitalist economies probably have the most leisure. But leisure time (e.g., shortened work weeks, vacation time, overtime pay, maximum hours, minimum wage) are due to government intervention or collusion of the workers---and those things are not distinctly capitalistic.

Profit motive, consumerism, and productivity sound distinctly capitalistic. What good Capitalist goes to produce a product for its intrinsic value first, and only afterwards whether it will be popular and sell? It does not stink of culture.

I like this quote: "It should go without saying that not everything that cannot exactly be categorized as 'useful' is useless. And thus it is not at all without significance for a people and the realization of a nation's common good that room be allowed, and respect be granted, for what is not 'useful work'"
Joseph Pieper. You know him.

Just for the record. I am on team capitalism.
