maybe willfully ignorant was too strong in terms. perhaps you're just naive.

of course a government agency has never, in the history of mankind, ever doctored or fabricated information to serve its own ends, especially not our own, wonderful, flawless government from which all our liberties and securities flow from

because ultimately none of us are responsible for the decisions we make, we're all just rats in a maze producing black and white results

you see the government wants everyone to know that social mobility is poo, income equality is comparable to that of big bad china, that minorities are still marginalized in virtually every aspect of life, et al because: uhhhh idk my big libertarian brain hasn't actually thought this part out yet. hmm let's see the same government responsible for the overthrow of multiple democratically elected, left-of-center governments purely for private interests and worldwide influence, is for some reason comprised of secret communists hell bent on stirring up class warfare because: uhhhh idk my big libertarian brain hasn't really considered this part either

anyway, the moral of the story is that you're a sheep if you ask too many questions about my rock solid argument

I'm just skimming the thread, but do you have data that contradicts the data you're taking issue with? If not you're just using an ad hominem fallacy to attack the source without providing any relevant info yourself.

just because your 12 century english poetry major isn't worth poo doesn't mean social mobility is poo. your "rock solid argument" is entirely based upon the way you perceive injustices in the world.

just because everything isn't handed out for free here like in the socialist utopias that are crumbling around the world under the weight of government excesses, wastes, and frauds doesn't mean there's no social mobility. i would argue there's less of a caste here than almost any country in the world.

in fact, capitalism has moved more people out of poverty and created more opportunity for individuals, even minorities, than any other system in the world.

no, you're a sheep because you believe things that you haven't or cannot verify for yourself personally and go around spouting it like its gospel.

i mean, the bible was written. i guess that means its 100% true. hell. the quran is a political document in some countries. guess that verifies it as "rock solid"

you're either naive or just spouting some self-serving diatribe. do you work in a branch of the public sector that depends on handouts or something?

you mean about the percentage of people that are intentionally deceitful with the intent to get as much for free without working?

oh wait, that only applies to people that work for their money.

in other words, "no but that's not going to stop me from posting about it anyway"

oh wow more ad hominem and unsubstantiated claims. if i hadn't read every other post you've made in this thread i never would have saw that coming

and again, i expect you to treat christians with the same respect that you seem to demand for your own ideology, as both are products of blind faith and feelings rather than rigorous testing

phone surveys do not qualify as rigorous testing. neither do statistics provided by self-serving bureaucrats whose entire career resides on which side of the scale the numbers fall on.

in fact, there is no scientific method for detecting, predicting, or diagramming the human condition.

i'll give respect to christians when they start respecting the non-believers around them. but since you act so much like a christian with your own dogma, you get the same treatment they do

i know man and did you hear about how the census is actually a UN plot to take your guns? and speaking of self serving bureaucrats, here's what THEY don't want you to know: http://www.sovereign-citizenship.net/home.html

please stop talking about things that you don't understand. "it's a conspiracy because i said so. proof? heh what are you a sheep?" isn't really an argument that educated people are going to respect, which likely explains your hostility toward academia. don't worry though, there are thousands of freepers willing to eat this poo up right now so know you're not alone in your valiant fight against reality
