America's in big trouble. But we can't fix it until we pinpoint the problems. The Economy. It's tanked and not getting any better. Wall StreetJewish Finance Capitalhas shipped our manufacturing jobs to China and our high tech jobs to India. Our middle class is sunk. Fix. Slap a tariff on Chinamade products and lower business tax rates here. This stops Jewish Wall Street's treason and our jobs come back home. Elections. Democracy is awarded to the highest bidder and the Jews own both parties. Republicans kiss the arse of Sheldon Adelson and Democrats suck up to Aipac. Even little Rand grovels to the Jews. Fix. Register.
Aipac as a foreign government agent and ban their campaign contributions. Then push Congress to pass the We The People Amendment that caps campaign spending to persons only and bans corporations from buying elections. Under the Act, rights under the Constitution belong to people, not PACS and corporations. Media. Jews own CBS, NBC, ABC, and CNN. They decide who will live and who will die. They ignored Ron Paul and smeared Pat Buchanan. This time, your choice, I mean THEIR choice, will be Hillary Bush and Jeb Clinton. Fix. Restrict electioneering to a publiclyfunded national media forum giving all candidates equal time.
This stops Jewish bias and democracy comes back home. Money. Jewish bankers own the moneycreating franchise called the Federal Reserve. They loan money to the government and gouge us with interest. Fix. Put the power of issuing money back into the hands of government as mandated by our Constitution. This stops the Jewish banking cabal and our sovereignty is restored. Culture. The Supreme Court with four Jews favoring samesex unions is about to redefine marriage. This results in a polarized country and weakens moral resolve. Fix. Restrict the percentage of representation. Jews make up less than 2 of the population yet have.
tWitch and Allison Holker in Dancers Among Us! DS2DIO
TWITCH Hey, what's going on ya'all this is tWitch over here and I know I say this all the time, but this actually a very, very special episode of 360 because I am joined with my one and only Allison Holker. ALLISON Hey guys. TWITCH Now, you may recognize this beautiful lady, an incredible dancer, from the work she's done on So You Think You Can Dance. Today, we're meeting with the photographer Jordan Matter to be photographed as a couple. JORDAN Oh my God, you guys are gorgeous. TWITCH What's up, man JORDAN You're gorgeous. How.
Are you guys doing Can I give you a hug ALLISON Yes, of course. JORDAN My name is Jordan Matter, I'm a photographer in New York City. I shoot a lot of portrait photography. I just had a book come out called Dancers Among Us, where I photograph dancers in everyday situations. One of the hardest things about this process, is the telling of the story. Usually, with dance photography, you see either beautiful photographs of dancers in a studio, or beautiful photographs of dancers in an environment, but what you don't see.
Is a story being told. So, what I want to do is have you guys right at that top step and we're gonna figure out a pose and then it's just all gonna blend beautifully together. It's that lust feeling when you are so into somebody that you will stop anywhere and just embrace. TWITCH Excellent. ALLISON Fantastic. TWITCH That sounds good, man. JORDAN My feeling would be, maybe a backbend of some sort and then yah, and then maybe you're kissing her. Did you guys see that Haha. And there's the shot I just need my camera.
TWitch and Allison are like a dream, you know They have everything. They're very attractive and they're extremely good at what they do and then they're also really cool, so it was a very easy collaborative process. That could end up being really gorgeous right there. There, perfect, stay there. Nice, nice. There. That. She was wearing a skirt that matched the flowers, and so it made the shot perfect. Then when we went guerrilla, meaning we went into the streets and just tried to find something. We went to a coffee shop.
That one, that's perfect. ALLISON Uhhuh, okay, yah. JORDAN But we're not done. ALLISON Right, of course. JORDAN You know Because why would we be And look Yellow, yellow. Matchymatchy. In that shot, I wanted Allison to look like she was just wired on caffeine and having a great time and flying through the air which I think went really, really well. And then the last one we had ten minutes and we had to get something for tWitch. What's the dance version of this thing TWITCH Cool. JORDAN And I think, yah, you get up there and then boom. Fly up, just get as.
High up as you can and just make it like you're levitating. TWITCH Excellent. JORDAN These are great. Do you see anything you would want to make better in our two minutes that we have TWITCH I kind of like me down. JORDAN So then, we need to do some more down. Got some more in you TWITCH Yah. JORDAN There's no guarantee it's ever gonna work, and so there's always that sense of the unknown and there's nothing planned, so it all seems to just come together by force of nature almost.
Mass Incarceration in the US
Good morning, John it's Friday. A few weeks ago a company called Visually emailed me, and was like Hey Hank. If you could do a highquality, animated tutorial on any issue in the world, what would you choose. Now that was a hard choice, but I went with incarceration in America, because it is messed up. Now, crime is also messed up bad things happen to good people, and that's terrible, and something should be done about it. Well, we send people to prison to be punished, and to prevent them.
From doing bad things again, and to deter others from breaking the law. Punishment, corrections, and deterrence. Now we have this habit of thinking of prisoners as something very external to society after all, there are literal walls between them and society walls capped with razor wire and watched over by people with guns. But millions of prisoners are released each year today's prisoners are tomorrow's neighbors. So corrections should probably be the most important piece of the incarceration pie. Unfortunately, it is not. We are, however, really good at punishment. America has about 4 of the world's people.
And about 25 of the world's incarcerated people. We have the highest incarceration rate in the world. Over the last 30 years, that number has skyrocketed, increasing over 400. 41 of American juveniles and young adults have been arrested by the time they turn 23. Children as young as 13 years old have been sentenced to die in prison, and our prisons violate international standards. Solitary confinement increases instability and violence in inmates, and is considered by international law to be torture, but in America, it's not regulated by anyone except.
The prison officials no judge, no jury. Arguably the most devastating form of punishment we enact in this country, and yet there is no appeals process. And you think it's hard to get a job in America Well, we make it intentionally more difficult to get a job once you have a conviction on your record, not to mention just live your life. Convicts are ineligible for welfare, student loans, public housing, food stamps, and are often socially disconnected from community and family support structures. So in addition to have high recidivism rates, they have very high rates of homelessness and suicide.
Somewhere along the way, we started to think that being tough on crime meant being tough on criminals. But that's not the same thing. Punishment is only one piece of a much larger crime reduction pie, and it's an expensive one with some institutions paying more than $100,000 per year per prisoner. Long prison sentences have helped to decrease crime, but no more than 25 of the decrease that we've seen can be attributed to incarceration, and it costs far beyond just dollars the cost is to people, to our country, to communities, to families, and to ourselves. The policy.
Seems to be, if you've committed a felony, we just give up on you. These wars on crime, wars on drugs, they are wars on people the smart political move is to appear tough on crime because crime is scary, so we increased minimum sentences, we arrested more people, we sent more of them to prison. That's how we looked tough on crime, but the results are in it's bad policy! It's cruel, it's shortsighted, and to continue this policy of mass incarceration would be foolish. We're living inside of a massive $75 billion per year failed experiment. 2010.
I212 waiver Entered The US Illegally Know Your Options If You Are Married to a US Citizen
All right! So we have our first question here I have entered the United States illegally more than two times since 1997. Can I file a hardship waiver So, in this situation, if you've entered twice after 1997 it's called entry without inspection meaning you entered without a visa, then unfortunately, you're not eligible for a waiver. It's a very sad situation in these kinds of cases, but unfortunately, there is not a hardship waiver that is available for two entries without inspection. Now if you only entered one time.
After 1997, or even before 1997, we can help you! We can file a provisional unlawful presence waiver possibly, and you could stay in the United States while that waiver is pending. Now, if you entered prior to 1997 and had two unlawful entries, contact our office There may be some immigration options available to you. All right! Well, onto our next question I'm a U.S. citizen but my spouse entered the United States illegally and committed a crime. Can we apply for a waiver Well, here it depends You're not eligible in most.
Cases for the provisional unlawful presence waiver, meaning that the waiver where you can now apply within the United States, however, you might, depending upon the nature of the crime, be eligible for a waiver if you go apply for the waiver at the U.S. embassy. So what you would need to do is set up a consultation with our office, or with another attorney, and find out if the nature of your crime allows you to file for a waiver. I want to thank you so much for tuning in, and until next time, if you have any questions contact us.

Why The Rich Pay Lower Taxes
Good morning John, and welcome to this special edition of Vlogbrothers where we discuss the basics of the United States Tax Policy and why Warren Buffett pays a lower tax rate than his secretary. According to the United States government, there are basically three ways to make money. One You can inherit it when someone dies. Two You can make it by working. This is called ordinary income. Making money off YouTube ads, getting paid to do a job, making raw materials like yarn and then converting something worth more than those raw materials like a cool TFiOS hat.
That's all ordinary income. And number three capital gains. Now before we talk about capital gains, let's first talk about the ordinary income tax. Some people have a misconception here that when you reach the new tax bracket, all of your income lumps over into this new place, so you have to stay below a certain tax bracket. That's not how it works. It's actually a significantly better system than that. Here we have the four lowest tax brackets for a married couple. Now if you make ten thousand dollars a year, you pay a 10 percent tax.
You probably pay less than that because of deductions but that's your tax rate because the first tax bracket is zero to seventeen thousand dollars. Now if a married couple makes fifty thousand dollars they've moved into the second tax bracket, but still their first seventeen thousand dollars is taxed in the first tax bracket and then the rest is taxed in the second. This works on a scale for a hundred thousand dollars and when I made this graph, I had to make it extra long to fit on five hundred thousand dollars which includes all of the tax brackets, but even.
That person the makes five hundred thousand dollars still pays into all of the lower tax brackets before they get to their big high up ones. Just wanted to clear that up. Now, back to capital gains. Capital gains, is money that you get when you buy something and then you wait and then you sell it later for more. That's income, you've made money there. Most capital gains are made in the stock market though you can also do it lots other ways, real estate being a big one. If you make more than.
Like thirty thousand dollars a year, your capital gains tax is 15 percent. It's a flat fifteen percent for everybody. And basically, capital gains is how really rich people make most of their money. They invest in stuff and then it gets more valuable and then they sell it. Now, that's basically explaining how it works. Now I am going to get into how I feel about it. This is just my opinion, but this has always seemed really weird to me. Money in the stock market isn't actually doing anything. Companies don't have access to,.
Like, do stuff with that. It's not being used to build cars go to Mars or make tutorial games or whatever. I know that investment is important for our economy, but so is income. Income is, to me, it seems like it's worth more. So why is it then that we tax people almost invariably more on the money that they earn by providing actual value like proportionate to the amount of money they make The idea is that investment should be really good for the economy and that you need to encourage.
People to invest and so you should tax it less. The problem with that is that there isn't a lot a good data that actually supports that claim. What kind of concerns me is that the people who are advising the government on these tax policy decisions are people who make their money this way. And maybe they, just like a lot of us do, overvalue their particular impact on the American endeavor. Or maybe they're super greedy or maybe on the other hand they're right. Maybe they're right. Maybe lower taxes for them is better for all of us but I can't help but feeling deep.
Down that it's tremendously unfair that a waitress at Applebee's pays a higher tax rate than a billionaire. Whether or not that's good policy, I'm not sure, but it does seem like bad ethics. But as I say, I am not an expert and I'm completely willing to be convinced that I'm wrong. Nerfighteria, you are not wrong, because you kicked John's goal in the butt right out of the park. You kicked it in the butt outta the park. That's a mixed sports metaphor. A million dollars raised for Kiva before I.
Should We Raise the Minimum Wage
Good morning, Hank. It's Tuesday. So you've started a lot of businesses Crash Course, Scishow, DFTBA Records, VidCon, the ceaseless juggernaut that is 2D Glasses. And Hank, your companies employ dozens of people, none of whom work for the federally mandated minimum wage of 7 dollars 25 cents per hour. But Hank, let's imagine that your next project is a fast food restaurant, Corndogs and Sodium. What impact would raising the federal minimum wage have on you and your employees At first glance it seems like a no brainer any minimum wage is terrible, both for Corndogs and Sodium.
And for its employees. The Econ 101 argument goes like this the free market is going to set wages where they need to be, like if you want to pay 5 dollars an hour for Corndogs and Sodium employees, but no one takes the job for 5 dollars an hour, you're gonna have to pay more. You'll increase your wages until you can attract the kind of employees that you need to, you know, batter and fry and serve encased, castoff pig meat. And we know that economies tend to grow less when governments set and control prices, so higher minimum wages restrict economic.
Growth. Plus, unemployment will go up because of minimum wage is 10 dollars per hour, Corndogs and Sodium could only afford to hire one person. But if there was an unrestricted wage market, then they could attract two people who'd be willing to work for 5 dollars an hour each. So in the end, setting a minimum wage is an attempt to alleviate poverty, that actually increases it. However Hank, surprisingly enough, it turns out that actual labour markets are a lot more complex than the models of labor markets created by college freshmen.
This brings us to a famous study by two economists, David Card and Alan Kreuger. So in 1992, the state of New Jersey raised its minimum wage 18.8 percent. Pennsylvania, right next door, did not raise its minimum wage. Card and Krueger had the bright idea to go to the border of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and do employment surveys on either side of it. And what they found is that restaurant employment in New Jersey actually increased when the minimum wage went up. Since then, a bunch of other studies have confirmed Card and Krueger's.
Findings, while some have found that there actually are negative effects to employment when you raise the minimum wage, although it's surprisingly and consistently mild. Why Well, a bunch of reasons. For one, the minimum wage is probably near where the market would set it. But also, lowwage workers tend to spend most of their pay raises, which leads to increased economic activity, which in turn leads to more jobs. And higher wages also mean less turnover, which leads to lower costs of training, and hiring, and firing. On the downside, higher wages are also associated with higher prices on goods and services that.
Rely on lowwage labor, which means that your corndogs, Hank, would probably be a little bit more expensive. So Hank, the larger question is whether raising the minimum wage actually reduces poverty. And on that front, there is growing consensus that at least in the medium run, it does. A number of big recent studies have shown that raising the minimum wage 10 percent reduces the number of people in poverty by about 2.5 percent. Even many opponents of the minimum wage acknowledge this, but it's important to know that like,.
That won't always work. At some point, raising the minimum wage will lead to inflation and slower job creation. It's just not clear where that point is. But it's just as disingenuous to call the minimum wage a jobkiller , as it is to say that the minimum wage is gonna fix economic inequality. In short Hank, in economics, there's no such thing as a free lunch , but when it comes to reducing poverty without affecting employment, higher minimum wages seem at least to be the cheapest lunch available. But ultimately, Hank, now that I'm, I guess, an employer, I'm more persuaded by the personal.
Argument. We found that paying a living wage, which we would do even if we opened Corndogs and Sodium , leads to happier, more productive employees. Now, I know that's hard to quantify, but it's also what's allowed VidCon and DFTBA Records to retain employees for years and years, and grow sustainably. Now Hank, obviously I am not an economist, although I did win a bronze medal in Economics at the Alabama State Academic Decathlon tournament in 1993, but our strategy has worked out pretty well for us so far, and it's also working in much larger companies like Costco. Hank,.
