“it is not so muuch that the WC doesnt really explain Oswalds motive as it is that there is simple straitforward construct that explains his and Ruby's known behavior that weekend-- conspiracy. the 'evidence" cited to incriminate Oswald always is the sort that would be used in a frame. Dont let the trees obscure he forest.”

“I ask is your religion so weak and unconvincing, is your god so impotent, that you need to invoke the powers of the state to promote it? God might say "please keep the state from getting between people and myself. I dont need help from the state. "”

“Dana is spouting an old line...."My way or the highway". That slogan has many variations and sensible people do not operate that way because sensible people know there are differences out there and we can still live together in relative harmony. Everyone can safely ignore Dana except in her base who believe the same slogan and fail to understand that differences can be tolerated without having to give up your beliefs..”

Why Isn't Every Monday Like Labor Day?

“some years ago I complained to a conservative friend about extremely long hours at a stressfull job. He said it was good for me. ( I was frequently falling asleep driving to and from work) He claims the best thing for a worker is to work 16 hours a day. Many times in discussions with conservatives about the poor they express the sentiment that they have nothing against the poor so long as they are willing to "work their asses off" I have always thought forced hard labor was the essence of enslavement. IMO the actual "free" market in labor is the prodduct of all that government interference we call property rights. Hard to imagine the same market in a state of nature with no government interence on behalf of the few/ the wealthy. We have been trained to think of property rights as the opposite of government when it is government. I do not advocate eliminating property rights but we need to call it what it is and adjust our rules to mitigate its negative effects. In the old testament, 1 in 7 crops went to the widows and orphans, the poor were entitled to the corners of each field and the land owner could not strip all of the crops but had to leave some produce for the traveller (homeless) .”

“shalllow. "wealth" is created by fulfilling human needs. labor coupled with resources is what produces wealth. Primary capital is the resources of nature, secondary capital comes from accumualting excess product. Without sufficient flows of currency people dont buy and dont produce. controlled inflatiion stimulates purchases and productiion.”

“I am a firm proponent of us the 2nd amendment but find Mr. LaPierre's statements and reasoning to be dishonest, misleading insulting to my intelligencce and in the end a real threat to the right to bear arms. The reason the right is elevated to constitutional status is to insure the people have some semblance of parity with the state and federal military---- not to promote the vigilanteeism that is now used to support gun manufacturerers. This glorification of vigilanteeism is encouraging such killings. If crime were the issue it woulld be a purely political questiion for each jurisdiction and not a constitutional right.”

rsanbor7 on Apr 7, 2013 at 16:08:42

“It is a Constitutional right so the citizenry has the means to resist a government that imposes laws that violate the rights of the Constitution. Where did vigilantism come into the discussion? No one is promoting that view. I heard Chris Mathews trired to start that fallacy. Vigilantes support the gun manufactures? Now that is an insult to everyone's intelligence. I thought this was all about crime but you are right it is now TOTALLY POLITCAL because that is the progressive's agenda, to remove the right of American's to own guns. How about enforcing the thousands of gun laws on the books first. It is my assessment that all it takes to insult your intelligence is for someone to disagree with you.”

“my problem with these "libertarians" is imo they want to MAXIMIZE the freedom of the most free  who are usually the most rich even when that deprives others of real or practical freedom.  If my freedom is an absolute it almost inevitably deprives you of yours in  some real way. ”

“Social security is funded by a separate tax imposed regressively only on labor. it cannot contribute to the general deficit. it has so far only lessened the general defiit. so if we cut benefits are we going to reduce FICA or is it now explicitly just a general tax? I paid a larger share of my income than my parents just so there would be funds to address the boomer bumps as it hit retirement age. It is being effectively and retroactively turned into a regressive general tax on my labor. thanks sucker.”
