The worst part is, anybody with a brain knows Biden doesn't do it to "help his son." Rehab would "help his son." His son is a patsy for deals where his own name would be taking it maybe a little to far. He gets a cut, but all the funds go to daddy's account.

When you look at what they did in China, it goes to the billions.

Oh but Trump needs qualified people (college educated, proven track record of excellence) that he can trust. Let's look at him.

Your dishonesty is only superseded by your snark. But being snarky, like a disgruntled teenager, is not being right. About anything. Quting Dr Seuss, is not being serious, about anything.

Wake up fag-face.

Lol, the China thing is so big, that it is likely that the entire Ukraine deal is itself bidenjr's cut.

They got their shit together so tight, that when Trump noticed the insanity that was going on in Ukraine, and made some calls to find out what the fuck was going on, they made that the thing he did wrong.

Out of all their purported (purported because I don't believe they believe anything they say they believe) paranoias, this was the one they sued him on, and spent years and tens of millions of dollars on (well, whatever, at least in round 2 when they lost round 1).

Well, the title just reads "Nepotism." Just in case, though, I did address that. I know blindness can be a side effect of TDS.

Now, honesty, balls, integrity, employ whichever.

What do you think about the Bidens' actual recorded cases of nepotism?

"The Justice Department wrote a memo concluding that the White House was exempt from violating federal anti-nepotism laws."

"exempt".

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

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.


I do believe that if you, Mowk, are all the other monikers Pedro mentioned above, then Pedro just smacked you down by quoting you. Now I can clearly see why you disgust Pedro. Libtards are “children of the lie.” Pedro, very much enjoying your interactions with the “children of the lie.” Man, Pedro, you are sharper than a razor. Points earned for your smackdown on Biggie too.

The previous account attempt was not much earlier and the post was never approved and the account was never active.

Registered again, under Mowk, that first post finally did get approved. So I have never posted under any other account.

I think Faust took care of it for me.

Without any evidence to the contrary, Mowk is not Von Rivers.

Hey Wendy, we've shared an IP address, that is so ironic. "Without any evidence" to the contrary, WendyDarling is not Von RIvers either.

While I never believed she was Von, she could be that wrong guy.

Hi Mags, it is nice to hear from you.

Can we blame the individual for the expression of a current running through us all? Picking and choosing our respective paths between the trees and upon the plains.

I assure you... all of >this< was not my idea.
