    I thought the hot news was that somebody claimed they heard him say n once.
    I feel bad for you that the bar for what is acceptable behavior for our national leader is so, so low.

    Of course it's not acceptable for the president to say nigger, and he hasn't. Somebody writing a book claims they heard him say it years ago, which he denies. I feel bad for you that you are so uncomfortable with the word that you felt the need to edit it when you quoted.

    It's more acceptable to start a trade war. Worked in the past... the Smoot-Hawley Act was a drag on the economy that contributed to the Great Depression. By the end of 1934, global trade had tanked by 66% from 1929 levels.

    the great depression was caused by the central bankers

    they made credit readily available in the 1920's so people became confident and took out loans to start businesses and buy houses and cars which is why they were called the 'roaring twenties' and then they stopped giving out free credit and people were unable to make their payments on the loans and the bankers came in an repossessed their assets and bought up their businesses for pennies on the dollar

    They do this every generation or so and its called 'the business cycle' but really it is a giant con where they fleece the public like sheep
