    ?!! socialism ok.. but rest 😮

  3. Leticia Cortez

    What is going on in Gaza is beyond Gaza is beyond violence. It is APARTHEID.

  4. Leticia Cortez

    Our taxes are paying for this war against the Palestinian People. Cut the $$$ we give to the apartheid state of Israel.

  5. Patti RockGarden

    As always, Ralph & his guests have a very good handle on the subjects discussed.

  6. Tax cuts, underfunding, govt employee cut backs are the demands of the Establishment, not the govt.

    When will someone come out and call the GOP the traitors that they are. P.S. MSM perspectives regarding Israel is a consequence of the effectiveness of AIPAC and deluded Evangelicals.

  8. Falsificationism

    Really disappointed in the framing on debt/taxes. Please have an MMT economist like Fadhel Kaboub or Stephanie Kelton on in the future. I know #MMT doesn't directly affect acute budgeting decisions, but the framing of debt/deficits being a pressing issue for our children/grandchildren limits our thinking.

    The CURRENT problems are far too pressing for us to worry about how many dollars are moving from one pocket to the other. That said, we MUST audit the billionaires and increase wealth taxes dramatically. But not because we need to 'raise' cash to fund programs.

    AND the working class (of all stripes) that makes up most of the population of the United States has absolutely no control over what this nation's (corporate- bought) government does. Please differentiate between those with control and those without. It's obvious that there is a class war going on in this country and not to acknowledge this is to support its continuance and the dominance of the wealthy.

  10. Minnie Wipster

    It's not that the people in Congress who support Israel because they are older, it's because they are wealthy. Follow the money!

  11. Walter Shink

    Truly one of your most enjoyable shows.
    Peace and solidarity!

  12. Excellent interviews. As usual, always learn more from Ralph than any MSM outlet…

  13. Isn't Israel just a back door to the longed-for war on Iran?

  14. Neo Sannyasin

    Thank you, Ralph, for speaking up for Palestinians.

  15. Neo Sannyasin

    Thank you, Ralph, for seatbelts. I use them everytime I drive. You're a legend.

    Wouldn't mind paying taxes at all, would love to pay taxes if my money went towards building schools, hospitals, universities, roads, bridges, railways, infrastructure and so forth. However, the problem is that the money doesn't go there. USA, for example, has an infrastructure that gets a grade of D minus. The money instead goes towards things such as suffocating George Floyd by putting a knee on his neck for nine minutes while he is calling out to his mother, white phosphorus weapons that melt the skin and flesh all the way to the bone of Palestinian children in Gaza and so forth. Therein lies the problem with paying taxes.

    If tax money went towards building schools, hospitals and infrastructure, I would have absolutely no problem with it. I'd be like, hey, here, take some more.

    The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement needs to be our primary method as citizens of the west to counteract the genocidal policies by the apartheid state of lsrael.

    Unless Israel stops their expansion into the Gaza it will face a grim scenario.
    There will come a time in this century were either there is no longer a need for oil or the Middle East runs out of it.
    When that happens , the US will call back all it's troops ( and nukes?) and Israel is left without defense.
    Then they will find themselves surrounded by very angry countries wanting revenge. Then , after Israel fired its
    last nuke , it will be invaded by all its neighbors and they will make sure that Israel will be called Palestine again.
    So Israel , so USA . What are you going to do ?

  19. Pelly Thirteen

    We used to sympathise with the Jewish people for what the Nazis did to them.
    That was 80-years ago and now it is the 2020-ies and we should sympathise with the Palestinean people for
    what the Jews do to them. A total roll-reversion. The US does not speak out on what happens in Gaza.
    The only reason the US has been supporting Israel no matter what they do is : They a close to the Iraq oil fields
    and Israel provides the US with a close by military base in return for some nuclear defense (?).

    Did I miss something in this pod cast about fair taxation? I thought Ralph or his guest would say something like “Nothing will fundamentally change until billionaires are taxed into millionaires, maximum wage is set to $12 million/year and the Pentagon is defunded.”

  26. This would be a boring political topic but this was actually really interesting!

  27. Most people take the standard deduction nowadays because of the tax laws changes which makes itemizing almost impossible without a sure fire audit.

  28. For the algo. Thoroughly enjoy what you've got to say.
