    Suck on that.
    I dont think Rump could live 10 days without air conditioning in the summer or 10 days without heat in the winter. He would drop dead of a heart attack. Like I said he is soft, you can tell by his belly, and attitude about obsticals. He throws a baby fit when challenged in any way. Thats not the attitude of someone who can survive without a staff.

    The guy whines daily about anything that upsets him.

    he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and would choke on it, if his staff was not there to protect him.

    The trade would be in items that are consumable, in the early days only food and water, maybe warm clothing. Things that are useful. Nobody would give a shit about a soft shinny metal.

    If Jarod wanted to argue something similar to the article I posted yesterday about capitalism without competition and what that means for our economy i’d be on board. Just b*tching about people having money because you dislike Trump doesn’t do it for me
    Its easy to be an "entrepreneur" when daddy will bail you out with his billions, in fact its easy to fake success. I see it all the time.

    You sure seem obsessed with preppers lately. I sense a theme. Maybe your wife dying of titty cancer has made you take stock of your life?

    Most entrepreneurs don’t have parents with billions of dollars yet you see it? That’s interesting. Who of the wealthiest that we generally speak of had billionaire parents?

    the media emphasises the entrepeneurs. the real families that run stuff keep their names out of the news.

    Most people aren’t entrepreneurs who start billion dollar companies and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that

    Define it as sharing the American wealth with the people instead of allowing the top .00025 percent to take it all. Wealth is created by workers. The rich are simply taking it.

    The Big 3 Auto companies still do profit sharing. When they have a good year they give workers a bonus that is in the 10K range. Seem to recognize an adversarial relationship with workers is not beneficial to both and workers should be respected.

    Where did the workers get the capital to take the risk to start that business?

    Also your premise is flawed. You have this delusion that the size of the pie is finite

    What? I don't think you know what the word means. Powerful or not makes no difference. Man, you liberals have strange notions
    Quick, send those on-site researchers some computer models
