You need thicker skin. People only hurt you because you let them.

There are literally multiple police reports on record of me being harassed and literally stabbed by these people. Thicker skin!? Are you insane?

BTW, I didn't let them. They got one good stab and multiple people in the hospital in their end, thank you very much.


I thought you were speaking figuratively. Again, if I were you, I would move away.

So you were stabbed because of your political views? That's fantastic! And here I thought apathy was our country's biggest problem when it came to politics.

What is a "government sanctioned gang" ? Do you mean the police?

Also I know this doesn't describe most Dems. At least I hope so... I was one of them for years.


I've never been a Republican. Just like separation of church and state, I think we need separation between corporations and state.

"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power." Benito Mussolini

Whenever we let the corporations run the state we have endless wars and workers wages become depressed.

Purchasing power of the consumer dollar

I believe in FDR's words which is why I am a socialist Democrat:

"An old English judge once said: 'Necessitous men are not free men.' Liberty requires opportunity to make a living - a living decent according to the standard of the time, a living which gives man not only enough to live by, but something to live for.

For too many of us the political equality we once had won was meaningless in the face of economic inequality. A small group had concentrated into their own hands an almost complete control over other people's property, other people's money, other people's labor - other people's lives. For too many of us life was no longer free; liberty no longer real; men could no longer follow the pursuit of happiness.

Against economic tyranny such as this, the American citizen could appeal only to the organized power of government."

I'm confused by your quote. Because it sounds exactly like socialism. To be honest, it sounds like any government. But at least capitalism allows for the opportunity to make a living and even become a part if the upper echelons of society. Socialism has never achieved that as far as I know.

Yeah, basically what I mean is that the state had classified them as a gang. I hope that clarifies it. They we're practically a cult.

ETA: Sorry I worded that weird.

Socialism is why we have roads, bridges, and public schools. Everyone benefits from our country's commonwealth. Socialism is great! We need more of it! And we need the government to break up the cartels and monopolies pricing fixing wages, products, and services.

It's okay though. The propaganda machine in this country has made socialism on the same level as pedophilia. I believe in the words of George Carlin which are MORE true today than when he spoke them:



This is why I ultimate don't care about politics. Nothing will ever change. Trump got elected and what happened? The swamp is just as full as it ever has been. The only thing meaningful Trump as done is give the billionaires HUGE tax cut and then gutted consumer protection laws. It's the same-old trickle down Reagonomics which has never worked. Just google "Wealth inequality in America" and watch a few videos. Wealth inquality cannot be any worse and still have a dollar having any shred of value.

So my solution is NOT to watch the news at all. I just play fantasy football.

No, I wasn't speaking figuratively. And actually I did move away. And yes I was stabbed for my political views. No, it wasn't fantastic. It hurt like hell. But I'll indulge in the humor of it with you.

I do believe in socialism to that extent. National infrastructure and police, fire, and education is important. Even at that basic level though a lot of those systems are corrupt. Police violence and educational failure and prison systems are all a problem here more than in most countries. I wish we could sit at the table and solve them, but our congressmen don't seem to be interested in our nation's problems.

Full on socialism is obviously quite a bit different. But I think we agree on some things so far.

It's definitely possessing of historical similarities, but I think it speaks a lot more to the Reagan conservatives than to modern conservatives, and it veers even further when you dip into the Alt-right. "Young people and getting away from God are the roots of our ruination" has not been the primary Conservative platform, certainly not in the past decade maybe the past 2 decades. The modern issues are sovereignty in the face of exploding globalism, illegal immigration, and unrealistic economic entitlement positions (the leader of which is in his 80s, so we can't say that one is thanks to the decay of moral fiber in the youth... Sanders is as far from being a youth as he is from realistic understanding of economics.)

Thanks for the video, though. It's been a while since I watched Goldwater speaking. I'd have liked the man alot... I disagree with some of his issues but overall he was a brilliant American.

The funny thing about Barry Goldwater is Hillary Clinton admits in her book she worked on his presidential campaign in college. As I've said for the years. The Clintons are NOT democrats. The Clintons are Nixon Republicans.


And everyone who runs your ideology isn't actually what they explicitly say that they are but are actually the ideology you hate.

You literally define the word projection.

It's fascinating to watch and actually entertaining in a way.

Kinda like watching a bird with no wings trying to fly.

Keep posting!!!!




Ummm...nice...

Great minds and all...

He'll plant your feet back firmly on the ground
He flies so high, he swoops so low
He knows exactly which way he's gonna go

I very much doubt "punch-whomever-you-feel-is-a-Nazi" is prevalent. Most ex-hippies I know just don't really care about that much about politics. Not everyone on the left is member of Antifa. If you read about Antifa it's not very well organized.

Like everything on the left, there's no one in charge. This is what makes the left so great. We have no leaders. People on the left simple can't follow authority. Where as people on the right love authority and worship their cults of personality.

I find it really humorous how the right plays the victim card. Do you feel "punched" for being called a Nazi?



I would like this post printed out, framed and hung in a museum in the Absurdity section.

The fact that you honestly believe that nonsense you posted is hilarious.

And a little bit frightening.
