Saiga410: jst3p: Saiga410: [Fark user image 425x432]

Looks to have slowed down the past 4 years.  Still down but less fast.

I think you should re-read what that graph means, because either you don't understand it and your post is kinda stupid or I don't understand it and this post is kinda stupid.

Down bad.  Substantial decrease started in 08.  dx/dy appears to be less negative in 2017-2019 than from 2008 to 2016.  Hard to quantify 2 years vs 8 but that is the trend i am seeing.   Need a better labeled time axis.


You appear to be reading it upside down.  Maybe this will help.

Roastbeast Sammich: make me some tea: Interesting that the lack of GOP 2020 agenda is considered here.

I've been asking for months what is the GOP's platform, and it turns out there's nothing.

On donaldjtrump.com a platform is absent as well.

So why vote for any of them? Looks like they got nothin.

Joke's on you. Half of Trump's voters don't read and the other half can't.


You are forgetting the other 50% of Trump voters, the ones who don't believe in math or science.

If this shiat had to happen I wish it was when I was 20 and full of energy and didn't have my own family to provide for and worry about. I'm too old to act right by acting up.

Good luck kids, we're all counting on you.

This is the biggest gripe I have.

People with families SHOULD BE the most active and worried about what's happening in 2020, because you have the most to lose.

That's a gripe I've had since people around me started having kids.

It's a terrible dilemma for parents, because they also have to think about feeding and housing and providing medical care for their children now. It's hard for most people to take 6 months off to be full-time protesters and organizers. And it's even harder when you're responsible for other people besides yourself.

Almost like it was by design, that.


When the workforce was opened up to people other than men, corporations saw how they could exploit wages.

Isn't your family the exact reason it SHOULD be you fighting for them, and not some dude without family?

Just so you know, you can go to their website to view the interactive graph, and where it jumps up to the plateau is 2008, and where it falls off the cliff is 2017.

Down bad and it got down faster at the end. That seems pretty clear to me.

The US is working toward the end-game of "March of the Morons."  trump and all his trump worshipers (AKA republicans) being elected in 2020 will bring forth a silent revolt against the inferior by people who truly what is going on.

trump has created an environment where his worshipers praise graft and corruption.  The superior group has been held back by their morals and that the dream of America is true.  trump and his mitch soviet lovers will have shown everyone that America is dead; therefore it is legal to f*ck over every moron in the US - AKA trump voters.

Why work toward a better America if trump and all his christian worshipers have destroyed it?  THey certainly aren't Americans, so they are all fair game.
