    How do you bring manufacturing and jobs back if Biden wants to raise corporate tax?? That’s why the companies left to begin with! I witnessed big pharmaceuticals leave because of that same reason.
    Thousands of jobs lost. Not to mention, all the union members that relied on the industrial work. Biden’s way has been proven to not work. The only one profiting on this is Biden’s family. Just like Kamala said at the debate. You must be loyal to China!! Because the tariffs are the reason why we lost all the jobs. I guess she’s ok when China held back the PPE we needed? I’m sure she was ok when China stole our Covid-19 research!
    Kamala and Biden is our countries major security risk!

    Vice President was on point and I don’t trust anything the mainstream media says. If The media was correct than Kamala would have looked better, but she looked a lot like a liar to me. Terrible news clip, thanks for nothing.

    Truth America" I Have Spent 22 months, 6 hours a day because I realized on August 29 2018 Trump wanted to create a Dictatorship in America. I Knew only Media and Articles chronicled day by day, month by month for my fellow Americans to verify for themselves in seconds would expose him!****Trump has been scamming more than 50 years, his atrocities will be have layers, he won't get rid of departments like The Consumer financial Protection Bureau he would just gut it by 90% to make it ineffective****When Billionaire Betsy Devos was Told in 2018 to forgive $150,000,000 in fraudulent Student Loans, she found ways to change Education department Policies to not forgive Money to these students un a timely fashion" Read Forbes Aug 30 2018" "Betsy Devos, queen of debt"*****In What World is congressman Ratcliffe with zero intelligence experience to be the head of Intelligence The DNI in Charge of 17 intelligence Agencies, what an insult to the men and women of these agencies, Pushed out Deputy DNI Susan M Gordon and Fired Commander Joseph M Mcguire with 50 years of intelligence experience****
    The 6 Jobs of Jared Kushner, with so many conflicts of interest Trump had to override to give him security Clearance" ****
    ****Read NYT Oct 28 2018" "Trump's Corruption: The Definitive List" The 580 Shell Companies, The 85 Chinese Trademarks, The $500 Million Dollar Loan From The Chinese Government Bank For Trump Indonesia Project****Tough on China, Get serious it's posturing****

    Trump called the place a shithole and has done NOTHING to help Haiti. I do not understand what message your sending to democrats, but perhaps literally sending a message to Kamala and Joe about your concern would be more appropriate.

    Fixed income is not a problem, the important thing is that you can pay Fixed Expenses. Now many people are more afraid of losing their income than losing their pride. If the need increases, it is not the expenses that should be saved, but the income that should be increased, right? Who can control his desires, he can control his expenses. Sometimes, looking at an Account Balance takes courage. Invest, as long as Date Young. Have as much investment as possible. Maximum total good debt installments are 30-40% of income. An increase in price causes the money we hold to continue to shrink in value. The solution? Have an income whose increase each year is greater than the increase in price. There is no one-size-fits-all investment. Don't call your friend just to offer you business. Establish good relationships first so you can feel comfortable. After a while then you can ask him to do business. Never even judge a gift by its price, but judge it from its resale price. Invest in an investment product that you understand. Don't join in just because it's a trend. Drugs not only damage your body, they cost you money.🤔😒

    How can you be undecided 26 days before the election? Why don't you just admit you don't intend to vote! Otherwise you like being lied to on a daily basis, and watching the democracy disintegrate before your very eyes! Three knuckleheads without a clue!

    Any undecided voter at this point is far more privileged than they would like to think, and they possess far less empathy that they would like to believe. Also, they are stupid.

    I'm amazed. 3 young people living in the most digitally connected age in human history, and they knew NOTHING about the candidates or their positions? Just spend some time, do some cross-referential research, and they can find out.

    My aunts were missionaries to Haiti in the 1950s. We were raised in a conservative Republican household, but the Republicans of then are not the same as they are today. Donald Trump defines Puerto Ricans and Haitians as the NYC gang members that he saw in the movie "Grease". That's why it was so difficult to get him to send helicopters in with necessary supplies after the Hurricanes hit. Biden responds to people. Trump responds to cash. Medical projections are that America will reach more than 400,000 unnecessary deaths before the January, 2021 inauguration. Even if we do get a Democratic sweep in the next election, we will need everyone to help turn around this disaster. Only politicians were calling it the "Great Recession". It has been a depression, plain and simple. We had a good solid start to getting out of that depression, but Trump's policies of mindless devastation have turned that around. If you sold lemonade in front of your home part-time, Trump would probably add that to his monthly "jobs report". Only the people actually trying to pay their bills know that these are not "living wage jobs". This time vote for America. Vote Blue. And stay safe.
