I wouldn't blame them for not knowing who Joe Biden is. This administration has been trying to keep him hidden for the last 6 years. To prevent the spread of "foot in mouth" disease. In fact the Obama's best defense against impeachment are the following three words: President Joe Biden

Poverty Causes Crime?

The wooly thinking here is appalling. "More than one in five American children fall below a RELATIVE poverty line..." (Emphasis mine) Even if all their material needs are cared for, they are still in poverty. This measurement makes poverty a moving target that can never be hit. Even if everyone in the country suddenly made 10 times what they do now, the same number of children would still be in poverty by the UNICEF measure. That is insane!
Not true! One pregnant human being is one pregnant with a human being. Once you have, of your own free will, had sex producing another human being, you then have the responsibility of caring for that human being. No violation of rights there. Do you consider the child to be sole property of the woman? Does the father have no rights? Lots of poor philosophizing here.
California is doing its damnedest to ignite a wage - price spiral. They raised the minimum wage from $8/hr to $9/hr with another hike to come next year. Everywhere I go I see stickers with new, higher prices covering up the old prices on the sign boards.
No mention either of the secrecy with which these trade agreements are being negotiated. Insiders get to influence the outcome. The public has no input and no insight.
If one of my paid employees was as dissembling, evasive, condescending, and untruthful as the IRS witnesses have been, I certainly would not "retain an atmosphere of decorum". It is time to read them the riot act. The House holds the purse strings for the IRS. It is time to yank on those purse strings for a little honesty and integrity.
Deflation? I'm just not seeing it. Both in personal life and a small food business, prices are continuing to climb. Electronics is the only area where prices seem to be stable or decreasing. Plus here in California, we are about to get an inflationary increase in the minimum wage. Apparently no one in Sacramento can be bothered to google "Wage Price Spiral".
The easiest way to fix this is to make a random delay of 100-400 milliseconds for each trade. This is about the response time of a human trader and for most trades won't even be noticed.

Big Government Really Is Over

Looks like folks are looking at the Swiss model. Strong defense, limited government, most of the decisions made at the canton level. Much there to like.
