Yes but you're a moron so you obviously wouldn't understand that there are positions where you can defend Trump and positions where you can't defend him, you're just an ideologically driven little sheep that can't think for themselves and requires validation from others so you just parrot shit that other people smarter than you said.

2020-02-13 11:31
and what if he just supports Trumps ideology. im not even sure its legal for a teacher to kick a student off class for not agreeing with them on political view. democracy is dying hard these days. all over the world.
2020-02-13 11:34
We don't know the full story. In Sweden a teacher has the right to kick a student out if they're disturbing the class.
2020-02-13 11:50
ofc you are correct but based on what we do know i am stating my claims for the teacher's behavior.

No, democracy we have to day doesn’t give what people wants, and it didn’t back then... Noone is able to take on a country and lead it in the right way without talking to the people... people have to decide not someone else in their place... we are animals after all, basic insticts doesnt allow us to follow one, so there wont be a democracy ever...

How trump is boosting the US economy, My teacher told the that was false, i proofed it, he got mad and kicked me out in front of the class
2020-02-13 11:22
Well I mean it' just true that the economy of the united states has grown under Trump and in a lot of areas businesses have increased their minimum wage, unemployment is down compared to the four years before he was in office, 2.9% growth in 2018 alone.

Don't forget that the US national debt also increased under trump with more than 3 trillion dollars. He is spending money that he doesn't have. Yes it boosts the economy for now but in the long term this will not work out.
2020-02-13 11:52
The US debt has been going up in pretty much the same pace for 12 years now, don't blame the orange man for that lmao

So has the growth of the USA economy. Only in 2009 it went down for once. The years before and after that it was also better. So the arguement is that the economy and debth has been growing under Trump and before him. I would love to hear the real cobversation this guy had. If the teacher properly expalined it and OP still acted like Trump is booming the economy, he has the right to throw him out. Let him go to Trump University if he wants to repeat the same shit from that echochamber. Matter of fact, Trump isnt really good or bad for the economy. You can argue in both directions.

the idea of the debt is to make it work in a long run, that's why the wall is being built and the trade war is still on going with china.

Who is paying for the wall?

Iceland fatboislim 
americans, who pay for americans to build the wall. so basically no one.
2020-02-18 20:01
Wait, what? If americans pay for it, how does it mean no one pays for it? Oo Im confused. Anyways, the point of my question was, that Trump promised the mexicans will pay etc., which is not happening obviously. The wall is FAR from finished and will cost alot of money. And it will keep consuming money. If it ends illegal immigration, then there is an arguement again. I just dont think it will and its overall just a stupid idea.

basically no one pays because the money keeps circling in usa. and and improves economy so basically the wall pays for usa.
2020-02-21 16:34
the wall improves the economy and theirfore "pays for itself"? XD How the fuck would that work out? Besides that the point of my question was to show that that was one of trumps many lies. He said mexico will pay, they dont, he lied. End of the story. To get back to your initial point: Funny how every conservative was crying when bvama made debt, but if trump does it its an investment.

less illegal workers and less crime and less homeless people. that means more tax payers with better paychecks who can buy stuff. ''XD''
2020-02-22 06:00
Thats assuming the wall will stop illegal immigration, which is also shown not to be the case. Also less from one kind doesnt automatically mean there is more from the other kind, so idk where your expactations are coming from. XD

its been shown that it has decreased the amount, so its working. And its not even ready.
2020-02-23 08:18
Yeah sure, a not completed wall "works". Its not like immigrants can go around it or have other ways to cross the border. Show me the proof that the wall is already working. Besides that, how would you even start to make the math needed to see how much it costs and how much it saves. Your whole arguement is the weirdest shit I have read in a while. Even if all of what you say woud be true and correct, the mexicans STILL didnt pay shit for it, which is what Trump promised. Even if the wall "makes" the USA trillions, the money that was needed to build still didnt come from Mexico. No matter how weird you twist all of this, Trump lied. Its so weird that all these Trump fans claim to be ohh so alpha and shit and yet they dont even have the balls to admit to a simple lied and instead weasle around all the time and make the most obscure statements.

so you dont have a problem with the wall, you just dont like trump. like you said even if i threw all the facts and told you how everything works, you would still hate trump and you would still keep trying to make excuses to hate him. im fine with that, you do what you feel is the best for you.
2020-02-23 16:10
Its not about me hating Trump, its about you defending Trump. I wasnt hating on Trump and you replied to me, you defended him and I showed that he is a liar and that what you said is twisted, based on the fact he lied and taxpayers will pay for the wall. If you buy a small business for 1 million and its expected to make 1 million in profit over 5 years, does that mean nobody pays for that business? Thats just dumb. The 1 million still has to be payed and if its not someoneone else thats paying it (in this case Trump said Mexico would), that its 1 million less. Paying that doesnt magically disappear. So again, trump lied and you are a sheep to him and defend his lies/defend him besides lying. PS: If I was american I wouldbe against the wall for sure.

how am i defending his lies if i admitted that he is lying? and why are people not allowed to defend ideas,even if they actually work? i dont understand why you would be against the wall, obama is secretly happy that it's being built but he can't say cause he is a democrat. same goes for clinton. do you like homeless people or why are you against it so much?

Its not a lie at all. And even if Obama never had 3% in a single year, he wasnt far from it. Economywise Obama and Trump are doing equally. Also Obama had to fight against the shit from the presidency before and Trump also tried to fix some things of the former administration. You are blind as fuck if you think Trump is doing so much better than many others did.
2020-02-18 14:20
Why do you capitalists retards judge the ""economy"" by things like GDP, stock price, and unemployment? Do you have any idea how many of these newly employed people are underemployed and/or can't afford basic rent and healthcare? Most of them. GDP is up, great. How much did the middle class's REAL average wage rise? It hasn't budged in decades.

2020-02-16 04:57
"How much did the middle class's REAL average wage rise? It hasn't budged in decades." What he means is, that not much of the growth reachers the middle class. Like wages, quality of life etc. Economy is growing, rich people are becoming more rich. Middle und lower class gets almost nothing of that cake. We could enslave everyone in the USA for amazing production etc, so the economy goes up, but the live of people in that country are now worse. Thats his point I think

Oh nice! Thanks for the clear explanation 👍 So what's supposed to happen when gdp goes up? They can pay the workers more so their wage goes up?
2020-02-18 15:39
Thats where your political opinion comes into place. Generally most right wingers are capitalists and no matter how much money someone makes (legally), its money they earned and that shouldnt be taken away from them. That means if there companies do great and make the GDP grow, most of that money will end up making the service/product better and with the CEOs. Profit doesnt get spread between everyone that works in a company obviously. Left wingers would argue, that the people here and the state have the obligation to care for everyone and kinda want to distribute wealth. This works by for example using taxes, so companies and people that earn over X amount of money have to give away more taxes, which then will be used for whatever its needed. Roads, healthcare, police/security etc.. In many countries you have to pay for profit/high earnings, so people tend to immediately use the money to invest it. If a company earns 10 million, but before they pay taxes they invest 9 miollion, they will only have to pay taxes for the 1 million. Lefties say this is a good thing as the money get invested into the market again. Some right wingers heavily agree with this aswell though. tldr: "So what's supposed to happen when gdp goes up?" Based in your political views it should either end up making those people rich that own the companies that made the GDP grow OR parts of that should be redistributed by using taxes or whatever tools there are to redistribute wealth. PS: Im on the lefty side here. If a company makes $100.000 and without spending much more they make $200.000 the next year, that money should partly be used to either make veryone in the company earn more or it gets redistributed via taxes. Funny enough the same people that say "taxation is theft" have no problem exploiting the work of people, basically stealing from them aswell.

Aw see, for something like this I feel like there could only be one answer, one that is better than the rest that some group of economists or something could say why something should or shouldn't be the way it is. I just don't think there is room for discussion when it could be solved by numbers and what not
2020-02-19 17:26
The is an optimistic view of economics but the truth is economics are very intertwined with social factors. They basically go hand in hand. Culture alone can drive economic decisions on a macro and micro level. You could come up with numbers to optimize decisions, but realistically, if people like buying big trucks in the US, they're going to be the top sellers. If you moved everyone from Japan to mainland of US and tried to sell them the same big trucks, it's extremely unlikely to sell due to the significant cultural differences.
2020-02-20 06:14
rather than spewing nonsense, you could research your own metrics and see that low-middle income Americans have experienced the fastest wage growth (roughly 3%) they've seen in decades
2020-02-18 12:35
Where you take those numbers? Random cherrypicked range where it went 3% up? Here are some nu,bers regarding middle class: brookings.edu/blog/social-mobility-memos.. Economy is growing for almost 2 decades straight and yet the middle class sees almost no increase in wages at all. Weird.
2020-02-18 14:30
your numbers are two years old. Do I even need to explain what's wrong here?
2020-02-19 20:50
So have they risen significantly in the past 2 years?

Then go an cherry pick a study that proofs that Trumpvoters are more intelligent :D See you never I guess.
2020-02-18 14:38
link 1 is cherry picking, just as I said. It looks at 1 small part of intelligence, which is verbal intelligence. It would mean at max that conservatives can express themselfs better, which doesnt mean that what they say is more intelligent. Also it talks about socially and economically liberal beliefs only, which makes it even more of a cherry pick. It then goes on to state: "Research has consistently shown that intelligence is positively correlated ...... with religious beliefs". No go on and tell me how conservatives are less religious than lefties. Link 2 doesnt even talk about intelligence at all, whats the point? It says (besides other things that have nothing to do with intelligence) that conservatives on avrg. have a bigge/more active amygdala. Now you may think big: Bigger part in the brain=more intelligent, but sorry to break it to you, if one part is bigger, others must be smaller. Now lets look at what the amygdala does. Ohhhhhh it sthe part of the brain that deals with dangers etc and makes people feel afraid and threatened. If you didnt know, people that fall more often for conspiracy theories also have a more active amygdala. Still no relation to intelligence. Link 3 is based mostly on study of link 2 and again has nothing to do with intelligence. I completely ignore everything about liberalism by the way as that has nothing to do with being conservative. The only liberalism conservatives usually engage with is economical liberalism, which is generally a more progressive site withing conservatism. Link 4 is basically the same as link 1 and the same things apply. Link 5 What exaclty am I supposed to look at? I wont read a 114 page paper, just to make a counter arguement. Specify what exactly its proofing and where in the paper it states that.

Now you may think big: Bigger part in the brain=more intelligent, but sorry to break it to you, if one part is bigger, others must be smaller. What kind of dumb thinking is this, that's not how the brain works and the right amygdala is about memory retention which is apart of intelligence >Link 3 is based mostly on study of link 2 and again has nothing to do with intelligence. I completely ignore everything about liberalism by the way as that has nothing to do with being conservative. The only liberalism conservatives usually engage with is economical liberalism, which is generally a more progressive site withing conservatism. It's economic liberalism, which is usually more associated with modern conservatives now >Link 5 What exaclty am I supposed to look at? I wont read a 114 page paper, just to make a counter arguement. Specify what exactly its proofing and where in the paper it states that. It's from the GSS, you can read a summary
2020-02-20 04:38
So you admit link 1 isnt saying shit. Regarding link 2: If the amygdala was bigger for conservaties without any exchange, their brains should be bigger in general, which isnt the case and you name part of waht the amygdala does compared to all the other things that make up intelligence. Great point. "It's economic liberalism, which is usually more associated with modern conservatives now" Already adressed that, its again super specific and not an indication for conservatives being more intelligent. Exceeding in 1 small part doesnt say shit about general IQ. No, Im not reading summaries of papers, just because you dont want to properly explain it in an arguement. Also dont be fooled, I never claimedelfties are more intelligent, I dont need to defend that point, Im just pointing out that you wont find any real study that shows conservatives are more intelligent. There are no real studies that proof that for either said, thats why I will reject it for both sides.

It says (besides other things that have nothing to do with intelligence) that conservatives on avrg. have a bigge/more active amygdala. Now you may think big: Bigger part in the brain=more intelligent, but sorry to break it to you, if one part is bigger, others must be smaller. What kind of dumb thinking is this, that's not how the brain works and the right amygdala is about memory retention which is apart of intelligence >Link 3 is based mostly on study of link 2 and again has nothing to do with intelligence. I completely ignore everything about liberalism by the way as that has nothing to do with being conservative. The only liberalism conservatives usually engage with is economical liberalism, which is generally a more progressive site withing conservatism. It's economic liberalism, which is usually more associated with modern conservatives now >Link 5 What exaclty am I supposed to look at? I wont read a 114 page paper, just to make a counter arguement. Specify what exactly its proofing and where in the paper it states that. It's from the GSS, you can read a summary
2020-02-20 04:38
same links as in the comment before. So basically its 2 links/studies, which have nothing to do with intelligence in conservatives. Did you even read the studies or did you just google some shit and copy and pasted links?

Facts of what? They don't show their sample size nor methodology and part of their reasoning for leftists being smarter is because communist nations were atheists, as if communist nations were atheist because of intelligence and not the fact that religion and communism are incompatible There's no controlling for respondents either based on age, level of education, income etc

What the fuck are you talking about, they SPECIFICALLY say which data they used. "Data I use two large nationally representative samples of Americans for empirical analyses in this paper: National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health), which is a prospectively longitudinal study of a large sample of American adolescents; and the General Social Surveys (GSS), which is an annual or biennial survey of large representative samples of Americans since 1972." You can easily check out both of the study he mentiones to see how they got teh data and how big the sample size was. Little spoiler: Its alot of people and they are comparibly big studies. Show me ONE relevant study that is bigger that could be used here. Also "do you know what adolescent intelligence is and why it isn't considered reliable when judging an adult?". What is it to you and why the fuck would it be not reliable? The reason you look at adolescent intelligence is, that they are more stable when it comes to IQ. theguardian.com/science/2011/oct/19/teen.. Including youngsters could fuck up the data.

Low iq also means the working class which is true, the working class will vote for the right wing more as they want to be taxed less because they make less money and they want more jobs which you don't get when you elect a left wing person you lose jobs and your economy shrinks, Obama is a good example of that even when he tried to artificially inflate it with public sector jobs, overall it still went down, while under Trump private sector jobs grew and the economy improved which is most beneficial to the working class aka a majority of the country.

It depends where you go really, the average IQ of Britain is higher than the rest of Europe it's something like 101 so that would be the average but really we're talking about educated vs none educated. and uneducated people do tend to be working class and working class people vote right wing as it's in their best interest to do so.

Its funny that scientists had been pointing at the greenhouse effect for decades and that there are still people like you that act like it doesnt exist, when you can proof it with some simple things you can buy at a store. Greenhouse effect can be reproduced, so why wouldnt it be of matter for climate change if we can show that all the things needed for it are there. Heck, we even struggled with the ozonehole and because we for example banned CFCs we managed to get hold of it. And then rightist say the climate scientists have been wrong in the past with their restrictions, when in fact they are just closing their eyes about the fact that many countries changed things for the better, so the predictions obviously fail. Its not that the predictions themselfs where wrong, the circumstances changed. WHich is actually a fucking good thing as we already made a change. A now that is being used to fuck it all up again.

Thats totally irrelevant though. if we wouldnt recycle anything, then yes, the world would be fucked up pretty hard to the point where most people would die. If you think otherwise, Im not really sure what you think recycling is/means and to what extend we do it. Thats still not the point though. The point is, that you are mad about a 11 year old that cares about recycling. As she cares and you dont seem to care at all, I think its just proofing that she actually learns something and is eager to share what she world, while you come here to cry about getting thrown out of class for preventing your fellow students from learning. If you dont want to learn, leave school instead of being an annoyance to your class. PS: Greets to your sister from me, she is doing a good job actually caring.

Aight, lemme describe the situation. My society teacher (Yes that’s a thing here), was talking about some recent news, when he was talking bout the recent Democtatic Party election, he ended up saying that a strong candidate was needed to beat trump. (Ok so far) He switched the powerpoint slide to a ‘reason list’, why trump was destroying the US: - Trump is racist - Trump is sexist - Trump destroys the economy - Trump doesn’t care bout the ‘climate problem’ - Trump is reckless af I told my told my teacher to keep in potilically neutral, and not to spread untrue facts. (Economy) He said if i supported trump, i didn’t know ANYTHING about politics at all (which is untrue). I grabbed one of the statements of the powerpoints slide, the economy thing. I told him the economy is growing, unemployed rate keeps falling. I said he can’t be lying in front of a class to make people believe trump is a reckless horrible person. He got frustrated to leave the classroom bcuz i was disturbing his class. ——— edit: Argument bout the economy was a bit longer when i am reading this, but this is basically what happened

Aight, thanks for the explanation. Then this is a _horrible_ teacher. Of course teachers have political views, and that's a 100% allowed. But then he should do something like:" _I_ am not a fan of Trump because I think his policies are bad for bla bla bla", instead of presenting it as facts. I for sure don't support or like Trump, but I would complain to him (the teacher) as well. This is exactly how a teacher shouldn't act, so make sure you complain! I have never experienced anything similar. Yeah of course, teacher's biases have shone through (which is natural), but they have usually allowed (and even encouraged) open political discource in class.

I never understood why some people at one end of the political spectrum think that people on the other side aren't right about anything. I'm a lefty too, but afaik Trump hasn't done a bad job economically. I don't know the long term effects, but it doesn't seem bad so far. I at the very least don't see any evidence for saying Trump is destroying the US economy. Also, on what basis does your teacher think Trump is a sexist? It's a huge statement that one can't easily prove. I've never heard anything about Trump that would make me think he's a racist. Your teacher sounds like someone who gets easily brainwashed by what people in the news say about Trump. Doesn't seem to care about proof. Disgusting really. I'd definitely talk to my principal about this.

I mean Most of the politically radical people in schools and universities tend to be left wing, you're more likely to find a crazy leftist saying kill or beat up right wingers than you are a crazy right winger saying beat up leftists. like this nice guy youtube.com/watch?v=ogZoViJKX4A
2020-02-13 11:33
true, tbh be a radical left wing is just being ignorant to the world and what is occurring at the moment. people support immigration but when those immigrants will show up at the door of those lefties, they will not open the door and will not help and just say that other people will help those immigrants. on the economy side of things - Trump did very good, the eco is growing, the rich doesnt get richer and the country is steadily growing and evolving.

That's a very simplified view of the world... Both left-wingers and right-wingers can be very ignorant of what's going on in the world. Immigration is not the only event on the global stage these days. And the economy is doing very well. But the economy has been going very well for many years, including Obama's years, thus both Obama and Trump should be "praised" for that. So many right-wingers seem to actually believe the economy was totally shit under Obama, then suddently became great a few months after Trump got elected.
2020-02-13 11:59
for one moment i didnt give Trump all the credit for the economy situation, what is said is that the democrats and lefties are saying how bad Trump is for the economy while he he is the exact opposite of what they are claiming. and immigration is a big part of Trump's agenda and one of the main reasons he was elected for presidency.

No didn't say you claimed it. But I have heard so many "Trump took over a shattered economy, and fixed it"-arguments. But that's probably from blind supporters who will praise everything Trump does, no matter what. Everybody should be critical enough to criticize their own as well. I have liked quite a few politicians during my years alive, but I always disagreed about certain aspects of what they have done.

Well, in the civillized world, right and left-wingers luckily don't kill each other that often. And not every academic is a left-wing, and many who are, don't believe in denying people on the right freedom of speech. There is always a LOUD and angry minority who get offended on behalf of others. Most people are quite nice actually.

Well economy is all about cycles. We were at the bottom in 2008-2009. Political leaders usually get too much credit for the economic performance. Sure, Obama had to take some steps to get the US out of the crisis asap, and he did that fairly well. And when Trump took over, the economy still had an upwards trajectory. Unless he did something reaaally stupid, the economic performance would most likely still improve.

Yes but the growth hasnt really gone higher than under Obama. It's just the same. Both had a peak of 2.9%. It's like you say and i know that, that the economy is a cycle. But the thing is what has Trump done with this gdp growth differently than Obama. If you could explain me this, id be grateful

From what I can see, the growth in GDP is pretty much the same, give or take some variety here and there. I guess the only thing that has truly improved is the unemployment, which has sunk like 1.2% since Trump took over. From 4.9% to 3.7% in 2019. However, the unemployment was almost 10% after Obama took over, and it was below 5% when he left office. So, he did a preeetty good job on that front too, even though he had two full terms. A lower unemployment than 3% is not really realistic anyway. The will always be "natural" unemployment, as people switch between jobs etc.
2020-02-13 12:51
Tbh Trump did deregulate the banks, which is leading to this economic prosperity. On the other hand he deregulated the banks and pressured the fed to keep interest rates low, so he probably created a bigger bubble than the 2008 bubble.

Some kid tried doing this in my politics 101 class. Literally no one cares about your political views so don't go bringing it up in class full of 200 students just to argue with the Prof. Literally no one wants to hear the bullshit from either side. Don't waste other people's time
2020-02-16 05:06
I disagree. Even if you get a few people to actually look up facts its worth the effort. There are always going to be people who only want to believe what they want. You aren't arguing with them you are arguing for the fact and the people who will actually listen even if its only a few people.

That's exactly what's annoying about it. Arguing going back and forth as if it's some debate, people already have their political views made up. Research the facts? The class is going to make you do that, no one cares what some other 18 yr old is going to say about it. In fact their more inclined to trust the Prof at that point. And if that's the goal then do it elsewhere, not where the majority of the class is not influenced apart from giving you disgusting stares.

It's hard to believe that a teacher would throw someone out from class just because they lost an argument. I'm almost 100% sure you were disrespectful in one way or another. Defending Trump while being disrespectful is counter productive if you want people to switch from left to right, just sayin.
