It wouldn’t totally surprise me if republicans killed free school lunches. Not supplying baby formula? Naw, I haven’t become that cynical.. yet. There’s always tomorrow.


Sounds good to me. Less kids equals less problems.

Yes formulae was really hard to find in Roman days to. It was also such a PITA to pack enough formulae on the wagon train to get all the way to California. I suspect that a significant portion of the worlds babies some how survive today without formulae.


If your point is babies should only live to Roman era standards, yes, you’ve made it. There’s two conditions where babies need formula that I found. One is where the mother has a glandular condition where the breasts produce no milk. The other is a form of lactose intolerance that the baby can’t tolerate breast milk.

What was infant mortality in the Roman era anyway?

Not at all. There's enough mom's who use formula because they can or don't want to continue breast feeding , that it will never happen. Period.

This is a serious issue, because these banks incorporated socialism into a capitalistic structure.

These are huge banks too, not smaller regional banks.

Their structure became based upon socialism because cash was plentiful.

They didn't have to be efficient.

They can all easily fail because Socialism crept into the structure.

Under Joe Biden, Woke Banks Run Wild

3/25/21
.
.
.
Many on the left want to allow banks to discriminate on the basis of political ideology, among other things, because large banks have already used their power to promote a variety of causes favored by Democrats.

For instance, in February, Bank of America announced, "Building on Bank of America's longstanding support for the Paris Climate Agreement, the company today outlined initial steps to achieve its goal of net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in its financing activities, operations and supply chain before 2050."

Pay careful attention to Bank of America's statement. The bank not only promised to reduce its own greenhouse gas emissions, but to reduce emissions "in its financing activities." That means it plans to force businesses—and perhaps even individuals—who might otherwise choose to continue using fossil fuels to adopt "green" energy or else lose access to the bank's capital.

Bank of America isn't alone. Seemingly every large banking institution in the United States is now gearing up to use its vast financial resources to promote liberal causes.

So if a person were to invest into a fund, such as a pension fund, the financial firm can vote on behalf of the person's shares (proxy vote).

These money managers invest based upon what the radical cabal states, not on economic opportunity nor efficiency.

It's a political agenda and much of the general public has no idea they're using their funds for such purposes.

So they're doomed to fail (automatically correct itself).

Asset values will naturally gravitate lower in price over the long haul.

Vanguard Backs Down From ESG Investing: Here's Why

DECEMBER 08, 2022
.
.
.
Vanguard, along with asset managers BlackRock Inc. and State Street Corporation (“the Big Three”), own most of corporate America. Collectively, they hold the largest voting blocs for most of the S&P 500, and are the largest investors in public oil, gas, and coal companies, having a combined $300 billion fossil-fuel investment portfolio. This massive concentration of corporate ownership, including of voting securities, in public utilities gives the Big Three substantial control over the U.S. industry. That degree of industry concentration, on its own, is cause for the Commission to reconsider its past blanket authorizations.
.
.
.
Moore continued, “Investment managers should act in the best interests of their customers and the maximization of their returns, not according to artificial restrictions drawn up by a cabal of global elites. Vanguard’s decision draws a line in the sand to say they will act in the best interests of their clients, and I hope other firms follow suit.”

So, you're not actually for freedom if banks pursue an agenda you don't approve of? I personally don't care if a bank has some agenda I don't agree with, I would put my money elsewhere not complain like you do.

They can invest in whatever they desire.

The point is, they're investing in socialism, which is not efficient for a capitalistic firm that needs to show consistent profits and financial stability.

They're destined to fail.

The structure has to be based on making profit.

If you like actual private enterprise as a model, you know they can choose the way they want to operate. If they want to support a side cause, that's private enterprise whether efficient or not.

If you want banks to be controlled, that's socialism, even if it's to force them to operate efficiently.
