If people had true property rights, then the Emancipation proclamation would have been illegal. It specifically banned people from 'owning' their property and released all of it from custody.

I guess that is what is said there in that clippit, but I didn't feel like going back for the context.

Yeah, that's the part where I was being way more polite than I felt was appropriate because my friend, who'd accused me of ignorance, clearly had no understanding of the concept of the social contract or of any political philosophy.

But yeah, that really does represent the best of the arguments being produced by the right-wing. My friend works in our nation's capitol for a non-profit that specializes in training conservative political operatives. His mindset is what is being taught to hundreds of people who will work in the political arena and on the staffs of major policy makers.

Nope, it's real. I have to give props to the guy who sent it to me though. I sent him a polite reply telling him that the e-mail was full of poo poo and then linked him to the bill. Next time I saw him, he thanked me and said that even though he disagrees with UCH, he's not a fan of the propaganda coming from the right and didn't like how dishonest the e-mail was. I think he was a little taken aback about how many of those bullet points weren't even just misleading misinterpretations but straight up lies with no basis anywhere in the bill.

Of course, his mother then told me that Oregon has socialized medicine and that they're literally letting dumpsters of sick babies die by the hour because the system is out of money and that if the fed was in control of health care, anyone not in the physical shape of an Olympiad would be thrown to a pack of wolves while Obama cackled maniacally.

The pig is a huge fat pig.


This is an original from my dad after I responded to a forward he sent me with one sentence that suggested that Fox News might have a slight bias much like the "state run media" he was villifying.

Dad posted:

Scott,

This isn’t about Republican or Democrat. My government, your government is being highjacked by a group that has infiltrated the Democratic party over many, many years and is finally now in power. This isn’t something that just happened. There are bad people on both sides but ask yourself this: Would you be upset if Right-Wing militia and other far right organizations (say, Timothy McVay) were shaping the nation with their views and trampling on a Constitution that has created the absolute best (not perfect) country on the globe?

Well, that is what is going on, right now, with your country. Have your heard of Bill Ayers, The Weatherman Underground, The Black Panthers….etc. This President is surrounding himself with these kind unelected, un-vetted folks and those left in the Congress that are not part of this coalition of thieves, Communists, and criminals are afraid to question (or read) any legislation before voting on it. You have to ask yourself: Does it matter to you that your elected officials-the ones that are supposed to working for you (not the other way around), are passing legislation that has, or shortly will, drain the Treasury. Furthermore, organizations outside the government and socialist by nature are contributing to the writing of these bills. No one voted for that!!

Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Lavin and others have frequently criticized the Bush 1 and Bush 2 administrations during the time those administrations were in power and at the same time the opposition would hang the president in effigy and dress a manikin of him in a Nazi uniform. Glenn Beck has even called for George W. Bush’s impeachment at the time during his term. But none of this matters now. Whatever seeds have been sown in the past have now become adult and the country is spiraling to disaster. You need to go to GlennBeck.com and read the questions that he has asked this week and will continue to ask…interesting thing is…The White House isn’t giving any answers or denying any of the facts presented there. Nothing.

I have been a citizen of this country a lot longer than you have and have participated in the process a lot longer too and I tell you I have never seen such a blatant and arrogant systematic dismantling of our Constitution. You will not see anyone in the “State Run Media” dare to ask these question and research the facts that the White House doesn’t want to hear. That is why Fox Ratings are going up and up and up and the President has appointed yet another unqualified radical (Mark “Marxist” Lloyd) to be yet another of dozens of “Czars” with the goal of shutting down any opposition to this “Government Takeover”. I nor my parents nor my grandparents have ever seen this before.

Any way you want to spin it, the economy is getting worse. The fact that so many, including you, can’t find a job should help illustrate this. I got my first big job in a recession. Simple logic should dictate that you cannot spend your way out of a recession. Did you know that the majority of “Cash for Clunkers” money is going to Toyota, Honda and Huyundi dealers, not Ford, GM or Chrysler. More jobs lost.

But, it doesn’t do much good to pick points here and there. You will never see the big picture. You have to look at everything which is a monumental task for anyone. Thank god for organizations like Fox News and the hundreds of conservative radio programs to do this research for us. Obama and his thugs and their policies are losing popularity daily as more and more Americans come out of the slumber they have been lulled into by government in recent years. You can thank us later.

You don't turn a company around to future profitability simply by paying off all its debts, and you don't turn an economy around that way, either. You can turn your personal, consumer finances around that way, but that's because personal finance doesn't produce anything. Turning all of your efforts toward paying down debt is called bankruptcy.

In short, you do, in fact, spend your way out of debt.

Also, nearly all of the "foreign" cars above are produced in the US by American workers. Interestingly, the Cash for Clunkers program has been a great success in terms of Keynesian deficit stimulus. The government pays to incentivize those who otherwise would have waited to buy a new car, new cars are sold, people remain employed.

Naw man, let's grab our strawmen and go threadshit. It'll be awesome this time, I promise. Saying someone's father is insane would be an accurate assessment when the gent fires off an email saying

quote:

and doesn't care to back it up. He's wild-assed crazy, as loopy as Orly Taitz. He's saying that Obama basically made his cabinet out of Black Panthers, Weather Underground (and to follow the inference to it's logical conclusion) SLA and ELF members. Here's the thing. He's not, he didn't he hasn't, and he won't. It's insane to say that President Obama is afraid to fight a war, and in the same breath say that he surrounds himself with militant black people. It's insane. That's what it is. It's an inability to form coherent thoughts bound by the rules of logic or sanity, and saying things like President Obama being a militant pacifist marxist socialist communist fascist fits that description. So, it is correct to assert the man's father has long slipped the surly bonds of sanity, as opposed to being a whole bunch of personal bitching about how big of a horrible jerk he (and TV personalities, as you lumped in when nobody has mentioned any in discussing the crazy dad email) is.

Yo, peep that shit

Don't normally post on D&D, but the making a fake chain letter seems like a fun project.


I'm thinking....a 'God' gene that's been dying out, weakening the general US population...

I've gotta say though, I'm surprised science hasn't been brought up in these chain letters.

Anyway, this is my shot at a fake letter


--------

The Holy Gene

Dr, Edward M., PHD, Liberty University


On the third autosomal chromosome, around the 13,000th ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/SCIENCE96/ ) base pair, lies a very special gene. This gene, according to our research, is responsible for HIGHER brain function, and its activity is most pronounced when in the act of prayer! Amplification of this gene seems to cause subjects to speak with God himself!

This research has been both a secret, and a joint effort with several international HIGHER learning institutions as well, as this gene is also social in nature.

We shared our gene findings with secret labs in Cuba and Russia during the Cold War ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cold_War ). We compared the gene activity between several subjects: US Soldiers (Post-Vietnam),
Citizens from Russia and Cuba, DEFECTORS from Russia and Cuba, and Students from University of California - Berkley ( http://www.berkley.edu )

What we found is remarkable!

US Soldiers and Communist Defectors scored OFF THE CHARTS with the ability to pray to God, as facilitated by the power of this holy gene.

(If some could make and label a graph for this, and the following paragraph, that would be amazing)

But in the citizens of Russia and Cuba, as well as in the California students, the gene was no where to be found! It was simply gone, and the subjects simply weren't interested in praying. There were other things they considered more important for their time.

We could have gone public 20 years ago with this information, but there was something else our scientists needed to check out....

We continued observing this God gene through times of strife in our nation, most notably, through elections. In the following graph, shows the gene activity in randomly selected AMERICAN students.

((Graph))

Notice something? Every time a godly politician, such as Ronald Reagan or George Bush is elected, our citizens are closely linked to God. Remember that this is a social gene; its efficacy is dependent on the population in which it resides, in our case, this great nation, The United States of America.

But when we elect someone with COMMUNIST tendencies ( http://www.whitehouse.gov/about/pre...illiamjclinton/ )....

((Graph of 1990 - 1993 ))

Our biological link to His Lord weakens.


But that's not the most troubling part.

((Graph of 2007 - 2009))

Recent samples from many of our students show that the gene is completely gone! After this election ( http://www.barackobama.com/ ), the gene itself has dwindled and gone so quickly that praying is considered WEIRD by our own children! There has never been a more extreme left-wing icon in office, and his mere presence seems to be irreparably damaging our youth to their VERY CORE!

Please, as an educator, it is impossible for me to understate the need for our kids to have a holy direction in their studies and in life. Bring the power of prayer, part of the very core of our American beliefs, back to our nation.

Bring it back to our children.

By any.

quote:

Joys of Muslim Women
by Nonie Darwish

In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and have sexual intimacy with this child. Consummating the marriage by 9.

The dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy.

Even though a woman is abused she can not obtain a divorce.

To prove surprise sex, the woman must have (4) male witnesses.

Often after a woman has been raped, she is returned to her family and the family must return the dowry. The family has the right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the honor of the family. Husbands can beat their wives 'at will' and he does not have to say why he has beaten her.


The husband is permitted to have (4 wives) and a temporary wife for an hour (prostitute) at his discretion.

The Shariah Muslim law controls the private as well as the public life of the woman.

In the West World ( America ) Muslim men are starting to demand Shariah Law so the wife can not obtain a divorce and he can have full and complete control of her. It is amazing and alarming how many of our sisters and daughters attending American Universities are now marrying Muslim men and submitting themselves and their children unsuspectingly to the Shariah law.

By passing this on, enlightened American women may avoid becoming a slave under Shariah Law.

Learn More.... Read: Cruel and Usual Punishment just released in most bookstores.

Ripping the West in Two.

Author and lecturer Nonie Darwish says the goal of radical Islamists is to impose Shariah law on the world, ripping Western law and liberty in two.

She recently authored the book, Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law.

Darwish was born in Cairo and spent her childhood in Egypt and Gaza before emigrating to America in 1978, When she was eight years old, her father died while leading covert attacks on Israel He was a high- ranking Egyptian military officer stationed with his family in Gaza.

When he died, he was considered a "shahid," a martyr for jihad. His posthumous status earned Nonie and her family an elevated position in Muslim society.

But Darwish developed a skeptical eye at an early age. She questioned her own Muslim culture and upbringing. She converted to Christianity after hearing a Christian preacher on television.

In her latest book, Darwish warns about creeping sharia law - what it is, what it means, and how it is manifested in Islamic countries.

For the West, she says radical Islamists are working to impose sharia on the world. If that happens, Western civilization will be destroyed.

In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President! I think everyone in the U.S. should be required to read this, but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!

This is your chance to make a difference...!

CERSEI DROWNS TYRION IN WINE BARREL

I don't believe I saw this yet. A friend of mine forwarded this to me (his crazy family sent it to him):

quote:

How's this for apocalyptic literature. This was written by a pastor's wife in biblical prose as a commentary of current events. It is brilliant.
------------------------

And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land
called America , having lost their morals, their initiative, and their
will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that
person known as "The One."

He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He
hypnotized the people telling them, "I am sent to save you." My lack
of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my
association with evil doers are of no consequence. I shall save you
with hope and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the
land that he who proceeded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation,
and that all he has built must be destroyed. And the people rejoiced,
for even though they knew not what "The One" would do, he had promised
that it was good; and they believed. And "The One" said " We live in
the greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!"
And the people said, "Hallelujah! Change is good!"

Then He said, "We are going to tax the rich fat-cats." And the
people said "Sock it to them!" "And redistribute their wealth." And
the people said, "Show us the money!" And the he said, "
redistribution of wealth is good for everybody."

And Joe the plumber asked, " Are you kidding me? You're going to
steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??" And "The One"
ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe's personal records were hacked and publicized.

One lone reporter asked, "Isn't that Marxist policy?" And she was
banished from the kingdom!

Then a citizen asked, "With no foreign relations experience and
having zero military experience or knowledge, how will deal with
radical terrorists?" And "The One" said, "Simple. I shall sit with
them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they
will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!" And the people
said, "Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons
into free cars for the people!"

Then "The One" said "I shall give 95% of you lower taxes." And one,
lone voice said, "But 40% of us don't pay ANY taxes." So "The One"
said, "Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!"
And the people said, "Hallelujah! Show us the money!"

Then "The One" said, "I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell
your homes!" And the people yawned and the slumping housing market
collapsed. And He said. "I shall mandate employer-funded health care
for every worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every
person unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to the
clinics." And the people said, "Give me some of that!"

Then he said, "I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas."
And the people said, "Where's my rebate check?"

Then "The One" said, "I shall bankrupt the coal industry and
electricity rates will skyrocket!" And the people said, "Coal is
dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don't care for that part
about higher electric rates." So "The One" said, Not to worry.. If
your rebate isn't enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you out.
Just sign up with the ACORN and you troubles are over!"

Then He said, "Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let's
grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches,
free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing..." And
the people said, "Hallelujah!" and they made him king!

And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and
ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others
simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto
a rock dropped from a cliff.

The bank banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a
crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support..

Then "The One" said, "I am the "the One"- The Messiah - and I'm here
to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have
enough!" But our foreign trading partners said unto Him. "Wait a
minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have
to pay more..." And the world said, "Wait a minute. That is
unfair!!" And the world said, "Neither are these other idiotic
programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state and
a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!"

And the people cried out, "Alas, alas!! What have we done?" But yea
verily, it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat upon
him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation
was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or
shelter or hope. And the Change "The One" had given them was as like
unto a poison that had destroyed then and like a whirlwind that
consumed all that they had built.

And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish,
"give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!" But it was too
late, and their homeland was no more.

You may think this a fairy tale, but it's not.
It's happening RIGHT NOW
