    She makes about as much sense as Palin. They should run together, since neither one knows what they`re talking about.

    Did anyone catch the lie about "direct Democracy" being "socialism"? Tell that to the staunchly conservative folks in New England who run their town meetings in the same way.

    Now she`s supporting USA`s enemy in a time of war? Isn`t that treason?

    Qaddafi`s a sewer rat, but I can`t disagree with McKinney`s main point: "The situation in the U.S. is becoming more dire for average, ordinary Americans and the last thing we need to do is spend money on death, destruction, and war."

    jtrebowski: Apparently you are not aware of the fact that socialists and communists like to cloak their politics in words like `democracy`, `republic`, and `freedom`.

    If you don`t believe me look at what North Korea calls itself, "The Democratic People`s Republic of Korea" or the former East Germany, "The German Democratic Republic"

    It`s as if they believe most people are children and can be swayed by renaming something, so that it`s more palatable, It`s akin to telling a juvenile that the broccoli on their plate is sugar coated fun trees.

    So what was so insane about this? How dare she suggest that direct democracy be given to the citizens of the U.S.? Our system of electing people who fail to actually represent the people`s interests works so much better!

    Yes, kind of like telling the American middle class that the U.S. is a representative democracy when it is, in fact, a corporatocracy.

    Crakrjak:

    We`ve had discussions on words before. You use words continuously out of context to fit alternative meanings constantly. Even your last post is an exercise in it.

    Effectively: "When you hear someone I disagree with, pretend their words have dirtier meanings".

    This gives us an insight into the logical failings that create a mindset such as yours, but as a way to intuit the world around us, gives us very little.

    Seriously, no further argument, I want you to repeat your last post, in logical form.

    You didn`t:
    Disagree with any point raised.
    Counter anyone`s point.
    Give jtrebowski usable info.

    All you`ve done is give an associative ad hominem with a non sequitur... like rapists often do.

    Incidentally, from an earlier discussion on propaganda from Memri TV:

    Crakrjak: They use the term like a curse word, not unlike the KKK uses the n-word or the way McCarthy used the term communist.

    Crakrjak today: Apparently you are not aware of the fact that socialists and communists like to cloak their politics in words like `democracy`, `republic`, and `freedom`.


    So I guess I take that all back. You probably don`t mean anything negative by that comment. It`s probably not an extended ad-hominem. You`re probably entirely wholesome in your meaning and if anything favour the policies of North Korea and East Germany.

    Right?

    Srsly, you`ve set a new record in "wandering off topic while slandering others" at IAB... a hotly contested catagory!

    So no need to watch it liberals. You KNOW already that she does not say that Libya`s Dictatorship is more democratic than the USA. You know this because she`s a Democrat and every word they utter is absolutely true!

    Yes, capitalism sucks, but socialism doesn`t work because if people are rewarded by how much they work and how much they need, suddenly no one wants to work and everyone needs more. Communism doesn`t work because if everyone is getting the same thing no matter how hard they work, no one will work.

    Yes, capitalism is something that looks to an eleven-year-old like it "sucks ass". Some people then grow up and are able to understand the deeper nuances, the natural laws underlying capitalism, and the fatal flaws in the systems that try to subvert it.

    Of course some people don`t ever grow up.

    @5 Cats again:
    No, Muslims are not allowed to smoke pot.

    So... what are you trying to say? Osama`s not Muslim?

    Ok. I totally concede to your point. You can never take it back. Gosh you`ve just made every conversation with you ever a hell of a lot easier. Thanks!

    Quick, ask me if Muslims are allowed to drink and go to strip clubs or look at porn.

    We`ve already discussed time and time again that their actions are unislamic. I`m happy you agree.

    Now if you`re quite done putting your foot in your mouth one at a time, maybe just leave it there.

    No @Baalth I was wondering if you were stoned while posting. I think your answer confirms my suspicions...

    @BostonKaiser: true enough, but not all politicians are dictator loving traitors, eh?

    I`m not saying one side`s better than the other, I`m saying one side is worse! Oh wait, um, there`s a difference, really there is!

    Yes, capitalism is something that looks to an eleven-year-old like it "sucks ass".

    I`m way past 11 and it looks to me like capitalism "sucks ass". That`s because I`m not fond of the idea of a feudal society. And yes, it is feudal. All you`re doing is changing the names of the different levels of power.

    All of the systems "suck ass" in a pure form (except maybe communism, but it`s impossible to tell because communism can`t actually exist).

    I think that what`s needed is to find the least bad mix of them.

    "True enough, but not all politicians are dictator loving traitors, eh?"

    So, if someone, say a Republican, compared Gaddafi to American doctors, or suggested America was pure evil.

    As opposed to, oh, I don`t know, you implying it when a democrat doesn`t say it.

    She is pathetically oblivious, but Libya isn`t really socialist. Socialism gets a bad reputation as an idea, because dictatorships love to call themselves socialist, because people will get behind that, and by the time they find out they`ve been lied to, the hammer is already falling down on them.

    Capitalism worked fine until corporations realized they could destroy competition and drive down labor costs by purchasing a few government representatives. But now they`ve got a chokehold on our government, and not enough people are willing to take a stand against it.

    Nothing wrong with Socialism, just like nothing wrong with Communism or Capitalism or any other ism (apart from Nazism).
    The problem is with the people who are implementing these structures, be them Military or Political. Moulding the fundements of these systems to fit their own little twisted view of the world and the poeple in it.
    All countries do it to some degree.
    Possibly apart from Switzerland.
    You never hear of anything bad in Switzerland

    On the other hand, Republicans are not insane, they`re just retarded.

    Nice try @Baalth (at least you stayed on topic!) but he says nothing of the sort.

    He questions why the USA is attacking a country for doing what the USA is doing every day (murdering it`s own citizens, IN HIS OPINION).
    He doesn`t say America is pure evil; but that the attack on a soverign nation is.
    Again, nice try.

    My joke about President Obama:

    A man walks into a shoe store. He looks around, but all he sees are hats. He goes over to the counter and asks where the shoes are.
    "We don`t have any shoes, we only sell hats" says the clerk.
    But your sign says `shoe store`" the man protests "if you only sell hats, why not have a sign that says `hat store`?"
    "Because nobody wants to buy hats anymore."

    I never claimed I wasn`t crazy :-p. As for the odds of voting Republican it all depends on the candidate I don`t blindly follow a party. As for her she`s nuts because she thinks Libya didn`t or still doesn`t hire mercenaries, thinks the US/UN involvement there is some sort of white devils conspiricy and seems to think communism will work contrary of what happened to the USSR.
