Do you understand the principles of the Hegelian Dialectic and how it's used to socially engineer society?

Thesis + Anti-thesis = Synthesis

When Dubya was Prez., the lefty/liberal folks where all "fear mongering and rabble rousing" and the righty/conservative folks were complaining about the "whiny biatches."

It's all divide and conquer theater. The differences between the National Political Figures of both parties are superficial and designed precisely to get the folks fighting each other over trivial differences while the real agenda continues to move forward.

Divide and conquer is exactly the agenda. And WHO is the "them" that needs to divide and conquer?

Why, the special interest leeches, RIGHT? Like Section 8 recipients. Or UNIONS, my god! How DARE they organize and appoint representatives. (Small note: The Rich have union reps. They're called "Congress".)

Here's yer divide and conquer, LibrulLeftardPinkoCathedralFrankfurtSchool punk!!! (See digram below.)

Good analysis to do:

1) Look at the chart

2) Ask "Who has benefitted" from our system?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cui_bono

3) Smile for the Surveillance cameras!!!

===================================

Here's a story about why the LEECHES need to be STAMPED OUT so gubmint doesn't STEAL my money. Like Section 8!

1) Section 8 is housing subsidies for poor people--BAD.
2) Poor people on section 8 never (as long as they're poor) as far as I know buy a house.
3) The money from the Gubmint ( you) goes to the Section 8 Landlords.

4) So the money goes right where it's supposed to-- the "job creators" at the top 1%.

I changed my mind! Section 8 is good!! But never talk about low income OWNERSHIP-No way Jose. No "little houses."

In Landlordville, us top 1% don't want company. (By landlord, I mean in the general sense: "people who sit and git"--earn from your work)

Everything is fine!! I'm shopping for my next apartment building!!!!

Smile for the surveillance cameras!!!

So the point of my story-- who are the leeches?

I am trying to understand why the police didnt taze the woman.

At first I thought they was stupid for killing her but then I think about Iraq. She would have been dead five times over. Is it right? Who knows. If she was a bomber then what.

The cycle of disrespect can start with just an appetizer.

RE: Shots Fired On Capitol Hill During Shutdown
I think police at the Capitol have different marching orders, with some reason. What is a bunch of armed NRA fringers showed up on Congress's steps after the passed a gun law (Stop foaming, it will never happen). You can't tolerate someone even pointing a gun (or whatever StupidMom could have had in her car) at the nerve center of your operation.

You can't taze someone who's inside a car, can you?

Basically a car is considered a deadly weapon. If the police have a reason to fear for their own safety from a crazed driver who won't stop, they are authorized to use deadly force. End of story.

^^^ And once that decision is made, you can be sure they are going to use up a buttload of rounds.

The Congress said the police acted heroically for shooting an unarmed mother. She probably was scared and confused by the random checkpoints. It just shows how paranoid and scared Americans are and how willing they are to obey. Why does such a routine incident throw a country into hysteria?

Of course the wealth disparity is getting worse. We have a socialist feminist president and his socialist feminist party is largely in charge of the country. What happens in socialist countries? You have a tiny fraction of extremely wealthy and a HUGE lower class. That is what Obama and the Democrats are successfully doing today, and the Republicans are not much better with their military spending.

Warren is far from a socialist. Have you seen how he runs Berkshire? Geico used to be a great company to work for, until Buffet took over and made it from an "investment" company to a "cost" company. Every single thing gets penny pinched over there.

Warren did not become wealthy from being a socialist, he's a pure capitalist at heart. At the same time he know's a middle class is essential and inequality is a bad thing. If people cannot afford his products (or any rich person's products) then a large wealthy class cannot exist.

People on welfare vote for democrats? Last time I remember, it's the SOUTHERN states that take more money out of the government than they put in. Again, people talk for the sake of talking and don't back their claims up.

Types of welfare = tax credits, business credits, social security, jobs (govt, military, contracting).

He is a socialist politically. He already used capitalism to make his money so now he goes around pushing for socialist policies so his wealth is protected by some middle class creative person to come along and steal market share. Especially after he is gone and he wants his charity to keep pushing for globalist means.

Of course people on welfare vote Democrat. Look at the ghettos, not a Republican to be found.

That infographic is wrong on many counts.
For one: 842 million people in the world do not have enough to eat. This number has fallen by 156 million since 1990. This is a total of 12% of the world population. Source: http://www.wfp.org/hunger/stats

Two: A similar amount of people live in slums, 827.6 million in 2010. Even though most slum-dwellers have the absolute basic requirements of a home(shelter and a place to sleep), we'll consider them to be "shelter-less". This is just 12% of the population. Source: http://www.unhabitat.org/documents/SOWC10/R1.pdf

Three: The world's average salary is $1,480 a month, which is just less than $18,000, a year, according to data released by the International Labor Organization. This is the average and it seems high even to me, I suspect the median is quite a bit farther down around $5,000 or something that. We also need to remember that the worldwide poverty rate according to the UN has fallen from 50% in 1990 to around 20% today.
TL;DR The world isn't as poor as it used to be.

I couldn't find any statistics about the number of people that live in insecure areas but I believe that the war-zone statistic is probably accurate. Granted, the proportion of people dying in war today is the lowest it's ever been in recorded history. This isn't a personal attack against Hencredible but I absolutely despise Facebook guilt-posts that are almost always made up without any statistical backing.

Ha. Relax. I didn't post that infographic as a source of support in a debate about stats. I was merely making the point to Speakeasy that he's better off than loads of people in this world.

Though, props to the way you composed your post. That should be a guideline for political threads. Challenge someone's data and cite support, just as if you were submitting an academic work. Empty hyperbolic opinions have ZERO value on an anonymous forum. All they do is distastefully inflame discussion which is tantamount to trolling.

Are you aware what labor conditions were like before unions came into existence? Sure, I'll agree with you that unions as they presently exist, by and large, are hurting more than they are helping - but to completely remove unions is just stupid.

Illegal immigrants - sure kicking them out makes for great campaign rhetoric, but they do a lot of jobs that American citizens would not do. They cost the American taxpayer money, that is true - but don't forget that they are paying taxes as well. If you could instill a work ethic into the American populace such that they would do the jobs illegals currently do, then yeah I'm all for "kicking them out" - but our society would suffer if we were to suddenly remove all of these unskilled laborers.

Revamp our education system - OK, I'm all for that. Would like to see your proposals for this though.

Create a tech based industry - don't know what you are saying here. America is a consumption based economy - shifting that towards a production based economy could be a step in the right direction though.

Do you know what welfare is? What you are advocating is not welfare, its an expansion of Public Works nationwide. If you are doing 40 hours of work for the government per week, and getting money in return, this is not welfare hahaha. That's called being employed by the government.

Taxes can only bring in so much revenue. You go over a threshold and returns start to vanish. The tax debate is a herring as taxes have remained steady throught out American history.

You invest in infrastructure and you put men to work and create avenues in which commerce and trade can expand. Where can goods go if roads are crammed, and crumbling; where can goods go if your ports can't take new deep harbor ships that have way more transport capacity; where can new factories get power if your grid is decaying and turning to shit, where can you set up a base to produce if your workers cant even get there because of gridlock. The capital projects of post war Amerca fueled close to 60 years of growth while initially weaning America of a depression.

You build a nation by building shit. Period. If your concerned about petty shit and identit groups then you spiral into the abyss. But if America is serious about nation building it would put cranes up, and shovels in the ground.

All the POTUS has to do is force the FED to fund projects just as FDR did. He has the free power to do so but as inept and corrupt tool choices not too. In that time 98% of Americans had work, 8 million American Men put thier hands to work in laying a foundation of prosperity they reaped the rewards for. This isn't armchair shit to simple good Government and good use of collective Goverrnment funds. Capital projecs is what transforms Nations. Imagine Egypt without its high-Dam, or France without its High-speed rail, Singapore without its massive port, the Gulf without its refineries. These were all visions laid out by good statesmen whom viewed a grander goal and idea for thier nations.

That is absolutely false propaganda put out by the pro illegal lobby-that there are many jobs that American " just won't do"

I live in a town that's maybe 98% white

The landscaping crews are almost all white with a minority of hispanics and blacks

The garbage men are white

The construction crews are mostly white with some blacks

The fast food restaurants are staffed by mostly white and some black kids

Most of the farmwork on the farms north of town is done by whites

The hotel maids and condo cleaners are mostly white with a good many blacks as well

The guys who work in beach services are white

The fishing boat crews are white

These are all unskilled, difficult, lower paid jobs that are stereotypically done by immigrants in other areas-so please tell me, what are these jobs that Americans won't do?

That's very interesting. What part of the US do you live in if you don't mind me asking? You won't find whites doing any of those jobs where I live. But I have noticed when traveling to places in bumfuck USA what you've described is common. I had to go to a wedding in Lancaster, PA over the summer and along the way we stopped in some strip mall and every person on staff were young white people.

My theory is that Americans - white or black - won't do those jobs in metropolitan areas where the cost of living is high. Americans aren't going to live in an 2-br apartment/townhouse with like 15 people. That's quite common with illegal immigrants doing those type of jobs though.

I agree that democrats love illegal immigrants and people already in poverty but I completely disagree that they want to destroy the middle class.

Having more people on welfare is going to cost the government more money. Any government (democrat or republican) rather have the middle class pay taxes because they need those tax dollars. Supporting more people from the middle class through government programs because they can't find full-time work anymore isn't ideal for any government.

They cost the American taxpayer money, that is true - but don't forget that they are paying taxes as well. If you could instill a work ethic into the American populace such that they would do the jobs illegals currently do, then yeah I'm all for "kicking them out" - but our society would suffer if we were to suddenly remove all of these unskilled laborers.

That is absolutely false propaganda put out by the pro illegal lobby-that there are many jobs that American " just won't do"

I live in a town that's maybe 98% white

The landscaping crews are almost all white with a minority of hispanics and blacks

The garbage men are white

The construction crews are mostly white with some blacks

The fast food restaurants are staffed by mostly white and some black kids

Most of the farmwork on the farms north of town is done by whites

The hotel maids and condo cleaners are mostly white with a good many blacks as well

The guys who work in beach services are white

The fishing boat crews are white

These are all unskilled, difficult, lower paid jobs that are stereotypically done by immigrants in other areas-so please tell me, what are these jobs that Americans won't do?

LOL I don't count Destin/Ft. Walton as normal USA - that place is full of the craziest people I've ever met in my life.

RE: Shots Fired On Capitol Hill During Shutdown
Maine, the whitest state in the country, has white people doing regular jobs. Shocker, I know.

Unions aren't the original unions that were originally created for basic protection from unsafe working conditions and extremely long working hours.

Now, it's more about the connections into getting a job that overpays. Not about producing quality work.

Unions are pure garbage. Evil.

Nowadays, it takes a lot longer to build and a lot more to build it.

It's similar to communism. If you knew the right people, you can get an easy job doing BS work and still get paid. Paid well of course.

By tech, I mean more STEM, and I mean non-college. Programming, Networking, Infrastructure, etc.

Hands-on, trade-style work should be a mandatory duty in high school.

The future is 3-month long courses teaching everything there is to know, then throwing you right into the field.

Not 4 years of overpriced crapeducation.

Train them in what? Not everyone can be trained as a doctor or engineer. Our country needs more jobs on all levels. Most jobs in demand are now highly skilled. That leaves out most people.

We need manufacturing jobs. That is what is killing this country.

Even though I was sarcastic about passing a law making people purchase American made products, people do cut their own throats when purchasing product made overseas.

Globalization brought in cheap goods but also sent jobs away. We can't have the positives without the negatives.

Do you ever debate or discuss without engaging in hyperbole? Since the time you have joined all you harp on about is socialist feminist government this and the government wants to destroy the middle class that? No the government doesn't want to destroy the middle class. They want the middle class to prosper because the middle class pays taxes. Big business wants to weaken the middle class because it creates job insecurity and allows them to depress wages. The government would actually rather people have working full-time and paying more taxes than working part-time and relying on government programs and running up the deficit.

I think the core of your arguments is something I would agree with to an extent but you are so caught up in the socialist this and that and the government wants to destroy the middle class. That is laughable.

Wrong on all counts.

The democrats love it when the middle class is destroyed, because it means more people on welfare. Who gives them welfare? The democrats. More welfare dependents = more democratic voters.

Same principle on why democrats love illegals - the more illegals they let in, the more democratic votes they get.

I agree that democrats love illegal immigrants and people already in poverty but I completely disagree that they want to destroy the middle class.

Having more people on welfare is going to cost the government more money. Any government (democrat or republican) rather have the middle class pay taxes because they need those tax dollars. Supporting more people from the middle class through government programs because they can't find full-time work anymore isn't ideal for any government.

I'm sorry, but your understanding of politics are niave.

Washington is run by politicians. The only job of a politician is to get reelected. Democrats run on the party platform of giving more and more free shit to the poor.

Thus, impoverishing as many Americans as possible only serves to keep democrats in power. That's how the real world works. The only thing that matters is getting those votes.

Thanks for calling my understanding naive. Just because I don't agree with you doesn't mean I am naive.

I agreed with most of what you said and still do. Again, you want to make this a democrat vs. republican issue but it simply isn't. The democrats want to give out the freebies to those poor people to get the votes but they also want to be able to pay for them. There is also a flip side to it which you simply ignore. The republicans want to keep the middle class impoverished so big business can continue to build on job insecurity and depress wages.

But unlike you and Is it my time, I don't see it is a democrat or republican issue. I see it as a government of all stripes and big business working together issue. As I said in one of my earlier posts, which party the president is from doesn't really matter. Both the parties only look out for the wealthy elite.
