There's a similar video out there where Hillary says one thing and then they show her saying the exact opposite.

Yes, both are serial flip-floppers, but they differ. Hillary's flip-flops are calculating and directed by public opinion. Trump accidently flip-flops as he shoots from the hip forgetting what he has said before, sometimes even in the same sentence! I'm not sure who is worse.

Isn't this the perfect opportunity for Americans to vote third party? I believe presidential candidates need 15% in the polls to be included in the debates. Why not every American just pledge support for Jill Stein and Gary Johnson so they get into the debates. Come November you can still vote for whoever you like, but at least there will be more choice, rather than just Hillary or Trump, two deeply unpopular candidates.

"I believe presidential candidates need 15% in the polls to be included in the debates." There are no constitutional guidelines on that. It's up to the media to determine who gets into the debates. It's the media that really determines who becomes president. As you can tell, The Young Turks only show negative media about Trump and are clearly democrat supporters. Each media outlet supports their own candidates but the majority of them are liberal.

"Come November you can still vote for whoever you like" Not necessarily. Not all candidates will appear on the ballets in all states. Each state makes the rules regarding who will be on those ballets. Last I checked, Jill Stein will only be on 29 out of 50 of those ballets.

Each state has its own rules. You can see the status for each state for Jill Stein by going to the following website. LINK That site for show you what is pending and what is needed to get on the ballot. Seems I was close but not 100% correct. She is only on the ballot for 23 States including Washington DC.

Even if Jill Stein was on the ballot for my state, I would still not vote for her. She is a complete idiot thinking that we can just forgive any previous debts and it not have any negative impact on the economy. Many of the people who have college debt, chose to go to an elite University. They could have chosen to go to their Community College which is much cheaper. As a taxpayer, why should I pay for somebody to go to school that cost an exorbitant amount compared to a community college? If the Liberals want free college tuition for everyone, it should be limited to the cheaper community colleges only - - not the more expensive high-end universities.

I am pretty sure it has been shown that free higher education has a very favourable ROI. All other things beeing equal that means the more people the government puts through free college, the less your tax bill will be.

If there is an ROI for higher education, then people should be happy to pay their own way through college because they will get an ROI for the investment that they are paying.

If someone wants to get a Phd in medieval literature, that is a completely useless degree and they should be accountable for paying for that themselves. There must be some accountability for picking a career path that has no ROI. I don't want to pay for someone else's mistake or someone that decides to pay $200,000 for a 4 year degree versus someone else that goes to a community college and only pays $20,000.

Jill Stein thinks that it's possible to take everyone that has a student loan today and just forgive that debt. Since the debt is held by the government, there is no negative impact on that. She's wrong. That is loss in revenue that must be made up by an increase in taxes. That was real money that was paid to the universities and not monopoly money or some sort of fake electronic money that she thinks it is. Second, she's wrong that all student debt is held by the government. Also, what about those people that paid for their own college degree by working at the same time as going to college -- they would be the losers because the government wouldn't retroactively pay them back. It's not a fair way to deal with the situation.

Free education will help your country in the pursuit of equal opportunity and in the long run yield net positive cashflow for the government, i.e. on average reduce your taxes. I don't see the problem. But if you would rather piss your resources away on bureaucracy and military spending I can't stop you.

Student debt is a tricky question. I tend to agree with your position. However I think it's plain lunacy that the student loans cannot be discharged upon bankruptcy.

Education is not free. Even if the person getting the education does not have to pay for it, someone else does. It is only fair for the person getting the benefit to be the one to pay for it. It doesn't seem fair for me to pay for your son to get a free college education so your son can have a higher salary. If your son wants a higher salary, let him pay for his own tuition. Or, if you are a good parent, you can choose to pay for your own children's higher education.

Having an educated population is extremely valuable to society.

Your way leads to a caste based society, the rich get educated and the poor are kept ignorant.

I agree that having a highly education population is a good thing. However, everyone should pay for their own higher education especially those that decide to go to an expensive university. I already provide 13 years of free schooling to my neighbor's kids. They can pay for 4 extra years themselves.

Those that do not want to invest in their careers can work for McDonalds or Walmart for the rest of their lives. Someone needs to do those jobs anyway. Do we really need to pay for higher educated burger flippers? Will they do a better job flipping burgers if they have a degree in medieval literature?

We already have an over abundance of people with college degrees that cannot find jobs in their chosen career path. Too many people leave college expecting a management job and there isn't enough of those positions available for everyone. Most people will have to start at the bottom and work their way up. If everyone was a manager, who will be left to do the real work?

If we all as a society pay for my son's tuition today, he will pay it back with interest throughout his working life. This will happen through him paying considerably higher taxes due to his higher salary, as well as him making a greater general contribution to society than he would otherwise do. This makes the pie bigger for all of us.

If your son does not go to college, someone else will get the job so the work will get done, just by someone else that invested in their own career.

Yes, exactly! He will give you and the rest of society a percentage of his income for the rest of his life. This is a concept known as 'tax'. The government spends an amount of money every year. If my son pays higher taxes, everybody else will pay lower taxes.

There is not a fixed amount of jobs in the world. Jobs are created and lost every day. A higher educated work force will create a greater gross domestic product.

None of that money will be paid back to me. That is not what I call an ROI. If I put that same money into a n interest bearing savings account, I would guarantee you that in 30 years, I will have more money in that savings account than I would get back from the government if I paid for your son's education.

Although there isn't a fixed amount of jobs in the world, I know there are jobs that do not need higher education to perform those jobs. We have people that stand at the side of the road holding signs. I do not believe those jobs would be any better with people with college degrees. Garbage men and house cleaners are other jobs that are needed and do not need degrees.

For many people, it would be better to invest in a 6 month vocational schooling that gives you a certification such as a welder, a/c repair, or truck driver. Those jobs are in high demand and people in those careers make a lot of money. You do not need a full 4 year degree to do them.

Please explain to me how it will personally benefit me if your maid has a master's degree versus just a high school degree.

Educated people commit less crime=payback.

Without a college degree your maid will always just be a maid.

The problem is your selfish thinking, thats how the world got messed up in the first place. We need to start thinking as a herd, and make decisions based on whats good for the whole society not just one individual. It is not just about you, but for the betterment of mankind. We must raise up the poor and uneducated, and give them the oportunity to succeed. Selfish thinking has gotten us a polluted planet, wars, the depression, and many things wrong with this world. So paid education doesnt directly benefit you, but it does benefit society and most of everyone else. Some will see direct benefit others will have to suck it up.

Are you joking or did I miss you at basic arithmetics? When you pay money today, so that you can pay less in the future that is textbook ROI.

In a functional western economy of the 21st century you wouldn't have a maid. With unemployment levels anywhere close to normal she would be busy working as a doctor, engineer or lawyer. The same goes for the guy at the end of the cash register stuffing your groceries into plastic bags, the girl selling you metro tickets from a booth, the people selling crack cocaine in the street corners etc etc.

You may not understand how taxes work. When someone earns more money, they do pay more taxes; however, that does not reduce the tax burden of other people. That becomes more revenue for the government so they can spend more money on pork barrel crap.

Besides, when people get older and retire, their income gets reduced and their tax burden gets lowered. We need to continue to collect additional taxes for those people.

Why can't we have maids in the 21st century? They are a necessary part of our economy as are grocery baggers, garbage men, janitors, and other lower income people. You cannot have everyone in high paying jobs or the economy would fail. You need people to actually do the burger flipping and security personnel and cashiers. Society cannot function without them.

I was vacationing in eastern Europe a couple of years back. In order to travel by a regular city bus in that particular eastern European city, I first had to buy a ticket from a dedicated person sitting in a booth dedicated to selling bus tickets. When entering the bus the bus driver wanted to see the ticket. Upon entering the bus there was also a third person checking my ticket. Hence, I required the services of three people in order to get on a bus!

In countries with higher GDP and salaries you have one bus driver and that's it. Society adapts to the higher wages through productivity and efficiency.

If society can't function without them, why are they paid so poorly.

I couldn't live knowing that my maid doesn't make enough money to feed her children, under your rules thats just too bad. Maybe she never had the opprotunity to get an education because her parents were poor, now her kids are poor and their kids will be poor. How do you suggest we break this cycle?

Because there is an over abundance of people to do those jobs and they do not require any special skills or training. You can hire a person off the street to be a maid and he/she can begin doing that job almost immediately with just a little guidance.

A computer programmer gets paid more money because of all the knowledge needed to do that job. A person taken off the streets cannot even use programs already developed like Excel, Word, Powerpoint, or even Windows.

I have an appointment in an hour to help a Nurse Practictioner friend, a highly education person, to use her computer. Even someone wtih a PhD cannot operate a computer so there is no way they could programm one. Computer programmers are in high demand and require a lot of schooling/training/educti on/certification. There are many languages and technologies they need to learn. You can hire people outside the country to do it cheaper such as those in India where they have some of the best schooling for programming but they still get paid more than a house servant in the same region.

If she is poor and her family was poor, she can save up her income and use that to pay for her school. Don't say that is impossible because I did it. I was raised in a family with 3 children on a single income (my dad). We lived in single-wide trailers in the beginning of my life and graduated to double wides. I was still able to pay my own way through college by getting a job at a retail store and using that money to pay for tuition and books. My parents didn't pay a single penny toward my higher education. I believe if I was able to do it, then everyone should be able to. It wasn't even a community college that would have been cheaper.

I worked as many hours as I could to get as much money as possible to pay my own way. I did a good job at work so my boss was very supportive and allowed me to go in whenenver I wanted to increase my hours. As a part-time employee, I worked an average of 35 to 45 hours a week.

I was the first person in my family to go to college. Both my mother and father were high school drop-outs. My mother got her GED equivalence with me tutoring her while I was in High School myself.

Can you explain how I broke the cycle but the maid in the above example cannot?

I was still able to pay my own way through college by getting a job at a retail store and using that money to pay for tuition and books. My parents didn't pay a single penny toward my higher education. I believe if I was able to do it, then everyone should be able to. It wasn't even a community college that would have been cheaper.

I worked as many hours as I could to get as much money as possible to pay my own way. I did a good job at work so my boss was very supportive and allowed me to go in whenenver I wanted to increase my hours. As a part-time employee, I worked an average of 35 to 45 hours a week.

I was the first person in my family to go to college. Both my mother and father were high school drop-outs. My mother got her GED equivalence with me tutoring her while I was in High School myself.

Can you explain how I broke the cycle but the maid in the above example cannot?

Yes, I can explain.

Your situation is very similar to my own except I lived on my own. When your trying to support yourself and save for an education it can be difficult.

I got as far as I could go and eventually became a computer systems engineer. I learned many things a programmer doesnt learn and since im not a secretary I know very little about excel,word etc., but i can use them. This education was thanks to the workers compensation.

I also have highschool and some college.

There are sometimes choices to be made, do I eat today or how am I going to pay for the bus to go to work/ school. Choices wealthy people never have to make. It would be best if no one had to make them just to get an education.

Not everyone has the opportunity as I did, everyone deserves the opportunity for an education and the chance to contribute.

I also work for lawyers and many professionals and it really bugs my ass that they were handed their cozy life and don't appreciate it. Their children will grow up knowing security,confort and all the benefits having money brings them. Others will scrape and claw and starve just to make ends meet never mind affording a higher education and that is wrong.

Was it your choice to go on your own or did your parents die or kick you out of the house?

I'm not secretary either but I know how to use all the basic applications and can use almost any application without reading any manuals. There's computer intuition that I know where to find the "Save" option under the "File" pull-down because that's where it is in most programs. It's fairly easy to learn new programs but some people cannot and I'm finding myself having to help my friends all the time. On the other hand, my Nurse Practicioner friend helps me with medical advice for free so we help each other out in Quid-Pro-Quo.

You say your lawyers were handed their cozy life. Are you saying that they didn't work hard by going to school, getting an internship in a law firm, then investing their own money to start their business and taking chances of it failing and them losing everything? In my opinion, I believe people should be rewarded for hard work, making smart choices, and taking risks that pay off.

Like I said before, everyone has the chance to go to a community college. If they are poor, they could probably get a scholarship and, if not, they could get a job and invest their earnings in their eduction. That's what I did so I don't have any sympathy for people that spend money on drugs instead.

My parents died. Yes, I have some computer intuition as well and I can use most programs.

The lawyers parents paid for everything, food, clothing ,housing ,cars, education, partying, drugs, trips, cottage, back packing in europe. Its easy to study when that is all you have to do. Contrary to popular befief when it comes to scholarships who you know , comes before what you know. Did they work hard at school , probably, but they had a roof over their heads, good food etc. Does the poor kid have that? Getting an internship was easy, one of dad's friends from the golf club.

Lets try and even the playing field a little and not be critical of the poor for being poor, which is what your doing.

I own my own company, and my home due to great personal sacrifice.

You were lucky. We lived for three months in a paper bag in a septic tank. We used to have to get up at six in the morning, clean the paper bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down't mill, fourteen hours a day, week-in week-out, for sixpence a week, and when we got home our Dad would thrash us to sleep with his belt.

Digging canals? Luxury! I had to get up in the morning at ten o’clock at night half an hour before I went to bed, eat a lump of cold poison, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our dad and our mother would kill us and dance about on our graves singing Hallelujah.

I think he was pointing out that you sound like a privileged WASP who is trying to make his upbringing sound tough to excuse the mess that he is. You have a chip on your shoulder and you're looking for someone to blame so you pick capitalists and people with an education.

I have no debt, Im married with no kids. Exactly what mess do you think Im in? I also hire disabled people to work for me and volunteer in my community. If anyone has a chip its you and him. Imagine blaming the poor for being poor, blaming drug addicts for their disease, and seeing people who make less money as being less of a person. Typical american attitude you both seem to share. How quick you both are at attacking me when your confronted with the reality of your attitude towards others.

Sad really.

There are multiple 'guest' commenting on this post. I am not the one trolling you now. As far as I can see you and me agree on these issues. It troubles me that you interpret my comments the other way around. And that you ascribe me a typical American attidue is way beyond me.

Take a chill pill and see you back here tomorrow.

Really you should warn people that this is not an open site for people to express their varying opinions on certain issues without ridicule.

Instead its a private site of strokers who want to stroke each other.

Good job boreme.

At the request of our canadian user we have formed a Truth & Reconciliation commitee to get to the bottom of what has been going on in the comment section.

Our findings are that a canadian racist has been victimised by certain users of this site. They have used multiple names to target his multiple names and have even unfairly spoofed the names of established users in their campaign of idiot-baiting. We find them guilty of mocking the canadian's sexuality his nationalistic pride his open bigotry and his attempts to sound humble and earnest.

From now on any users found particpating in this bullying will be entered into canadian residential schools where they will be subject to a programme of canadaisation. They will listen to celine dion, memorise propaganda and learn how to use gay abuse to attack people they dislike.

Bigotry will not be tolerated other than the bigotry promoted by the canadian racist himself which is totally fine.

We should definitely look into having a pop-up warning with the exact text suggested.

This episode has been a stain on this sites conscience.

We will never forget.

So, either your laughing at your own comment or other people use the guest account. Which only proves my point that this site is set up just to get innocent people to come here so you can insult them for your sick entertainment. I hope your enjoying this sooo much. I am not anything that you insist I am and I know the only thing you enjoy is bringing some pain to innocent people. So lets stop this and you can come and meet me somewhere so we can settle this like men. Hope you enjoy the show because that is all this site is going to be doing for quite some time now.

I missed replying to something and am using this time to do it now.

You stated that your son making a higher salary will be a greater contribution to society than he would otherwise do. Is it your opinion then that a high paid lawyer contibutes to society more than a welder or bus driver or teacher?

Not necessarily. I believe you will find that education level is more closely correlated to societal contributions than the actual salary is. My impression is that many higher paying jobs in the US are parasitic and counter-productive with respect to society as a whole.

The more educated the populace the less likely they are to commit crimes.

There is always white colar crime ,perps hardly ever get caught and when they do its usually a light sentence, even if they steal millions.
