    "Competition will start kicking in" needs to be playing on loop in the background throughout this episode.

  • juan gomez  (Feb 12, 2019))

    Competition is a myth, sooner or later somebody wins and that's the end of competition.

    +Andrew Feist No you are

  • BDizDaBest  (Feb 12, 2019))

    Can anyone imagine Kyle Kulinski doing a serious, substantive interview like this? He would have absolutely no clue which way is up, haha. I can just hear it now: “Uuh...something something Corporate Democrats! Neoliberal sellouts lost the Rust Belt!” lol

  • mc  (6 days ago))

    You sure you're not thinking of Jimmy Dore?

  • Shadow Might  (Feb 14, 2019))

    BDizDaBest Kyle doesn't dig into policy? WUT!? I'm not American either, but as somebody across The Atlantic who is an avid watcher of his content that's straight up bollocks. He's literally one of the reasons Congress-Woman AOC even exists and that's not to take away any achievement she's made on her own. Just merely pointing out that Kyke Kulinski and Cenk Uygur formed Justice Democrats, which in turn nominated Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. The American populace owes a lot to Kyle. He's a way of convertin...

    ​doe's right have anything good?

    Left tit is best tit!... ooohh! Bestist. I read it as Best tit. sorry

    Remember America, Rule Number One: You Can Not Criticize Israel (unless you are White)

  • DeadMarine1980  (2 days ago))

    +Wesley Buirkle stop trolling. It's bad for your health.

  • Wesley Buirkle  (2 days ago))

    Why would you wanna criticize Isreal,the only democracy in the middle east.EHH you probably support Hamas

  • Adeem Sadiq  (Feb 12, 2019))

    It was rather amusing Michael getting upset on the behalf of the caller. Michael does treat his paying members differently in a way Sam has never

  • ufster81  (Feb 12, 2019))

    +Jordan Press I don't think this is an issue about that. This sort of debate goes on in software development for decades, both parties want the same result but have different methods of reaching that goal and both methods have valid benefits and detriments. Michael is like the clean code guy, insists that in order for the grand project to be sustainable and effecient on the long run, the code must be clean and certain protocols must be applied to the t and this is a philosophical debate on the opposit...

  • ufster81  (Feb 12, 2019))

    +Adeem Sadiq I disagree, it's not like he wouldn't be ideologically sympathetic towards entertaining the notion of nationalizing some of these tech giants, anyway so him siding with the caller could be attributed to that just as easily. As to the applicability of the premise, BBC was a reasonable example that he gave. It's not impossible or even impractical for government to run such a corporation, but the real question is the difference of degree of pragmatism between the two choices if you only see m...

  • Paul Page  (Feb 12, 2019))

    If you can't beat the competition, buy them out. And monopolize the predatory marketplace.

  • Mark Cross  (Feb 14, 2019))

    +American Fuel TV You have a lot to learn about why god gave humans instincts. If I was content, the world would be run over by the distruction of greed . It wasn't here in America until the western sickness came over with the Europeans with this and other diseases. It is always a paradox how people expand and explore to "get away from it all", but bring it with them everywhere they go, Sick. DIS-EASE. You must be a disciple of Ayn Rand?

  • American Fuel TV  (Feb 14, 2019))

    +Mark Cross That's not an argument, you just sound like a malcontent.Like most leftists.

  • MephyBooks  (Feb 12, 2019))

    im pissing in ilhan omar haters' general directionthats all

  • wanderer speaking  (Feb 12, 2019))

    New Morning Consult poll looks excellent for Bernie. 2nd place just behind Biden. But he's overwhelmingly the second choice among Warren, O'Rourke, and Biden voters. Feels good. Run, Bernie, run.

  • In the Woods  (6 days ago))

    +Michael Langendoen Dude, what's the point, are you bored or something? You're never going to change anyone's minds.

  • wanderer speaking  (6 days ago))

    +Michael Langendoen High IQ, well educated woman from New York. Fit as a fiddle senior senator from Vermont. America chose socialism when it decided to publicly fund schools and police, fire departments and infrastructure, social security and national parks, etc. AOC and Bernie are leading the way and it's beautiful. Please consider changing your mind.
