Ohio Prison Worker Fired After Posting Facebook Comments About John Kasich

Ohio Prison Worker Fired After Posting Facebook Comments About John Kasich

Commented Jan 19, 2012 at 22:12:55 in Politics

“I do agree that Kasich has to go, but this guard should have thought about what he was saying. I dont know if i would have immediately fired him, but he should definitely get some sort of reprimand at least. Obviously we know he wasn't seriously trying to incite violence, but the way he stated it sounded like a threat to the life of Kasich, and publicly inciting violence or issuing threats has always been illegal. This guard just needs to be a little smarter about HOW he words things, because facebook can legally be considered public...so don't threaten people on it! Whether you mean it as a joke or not.”

A Challenge to Rush: Prove Your Ratings

“Because he wouldn't have access to Rush's legitimate ratings. If he did, he wouldn't be issuing a $10,000 bet. If he had them and they were that high, he would issue a bet he knew he would lose if Rush complied, and if he had the numbers and they were as low as he thinks, he would just make them public and forget the bet. Seriously, how the hell do you expect Cenk to have access to that information? Hes making an assumption based off of facts and knowledge of the industry.”

“A $10,000 bet to a man in the middle of a $400,000,000 contract....yeah, that'll get his attention.”

Vote Against Obama in Iowa

Commented Jan 1, 2012 at 20:28:43 in Politics

“The ACA was not progressive, it offered no public option and did not do anything to regulate insurance providers other than say they can't be biased against preexisting conditions. The individual mandate is something that just a decade ago was considered very conservative and was originally proposed by republicans. Obama didn't end the war in Iraq, Iraq kicked us out when they voted against keeping our troops there longer, which is what Obama actually wanted to do. The payroll tax cut is a split idea among progressives. Obviously we like that it helps middle class families in the short term, but many of us would reject it because it weakens SS and in the future can just help the right wing when they come out and say "see, SS in bankrupt, we need to privatize/reform/abolish it." Raising funding for education and repealing DADT are about the only truly progressive things he has done. His overall fiscal policies are moderate at BEST, and he is only now, when he knows he could never get it passed, "fighting" for higher taxes on millionaires. He has backed off his veto threat for NDAA and will allow SOPA to pass. We see no end to the war in Afghanistan in sight, and god only knows if he will allow a war with Iran. We dont need 100% of what we want, but we would like SOME of what we want, or at least what he promised before he was elected.”

Vote Against Obama in Iowa

“I'd say he would have a great chance, much better than he does now, if he did that. He got elected the first time by drumming up support from so many people who had previously lost hope in the system by acting overwhelmingly progressive during his campaign. So had he done more progressive policies or at least fought hard for them, they I say he would be much better off than he is now. The vast majority of people who would be put off by progressive policies are people that would never have voted for Obama no matter what he did.”

“Technically....we live in both. We have a democratic republic.”

“A better description is actually Representative Democracy.”

“Technically, we don't. A republic, whether or not the representatives are democratically elected, is always a form of oligarchy, not a form of democracy.”

“Ok I'm not gonna argue over who won or was was right, no one is going to change anyones mind on here, but I am kinda tired of people misquoting Stewart. He made it very clear he doesnt think of himself as "only a comedian", he said he's "a comedian first" and admitted his comedy has a base in an ideological background. Also, he was asking Wallace what does he think he "ASPIRES" to be at his best. He did not compare himself to Mark Twain, he simply stated that at his best he aspired to be like Mark Twain, just like someone who is musician would aspire to be like Jimi Hendrix or whoever.”
