i have heard this is false because it's vastly oversimplified but i've never heard anyone explain what's fundamentally wrong with it... care to?

there are tons of articles out there on this. the key points can be found here: http://rooseveltinst...dget-here-s-why

1) families can't levy taxes on hundreds of millions of people
2) debt isn't an inherently bad thing when it comes to government. the US government has been in debt for all but 2 years of its existence, and a government running at a profit is a government not sufficiently meeting the needs of its citizens (because government isn't supposed to be run like a business). no debt tells me that we are either not spending enough or taxing too much. the end game of starve the beast, after gutting social security, medicare, and medicaid, is to suddenly point out that we're not running a large deficit anymore so we should just cut taxes again!
3) historically, significant reductions of the debt have directly led to depressions
4) "The federal government is the issuer of our currency. Its IOUs are always accepted in payment." basically, if your household is millions of dollars in debt, good luck getting someone to accept an IOU from you

this article doesn't even begin to touch on the reality that government spending stimulates the economy (this is why a call for austerity during a recession/depression is the dumbest fuging thing ever). government spends money -> money circulates throughout the economy -> government collects higher revenue -> government spends that money -> so on -> so forth. show me a household that can operate in that manner

there's more to it than just this but i'm not an economist so if you're interested in more, there are plenty more resources on the topic, simply because people continue to perpetuate the myth that the government budget is equivalent to a household budget

Well that's just silly PC "everybody gets a trophy" crap. If you believe idiotic mumbo jumbo without evidence, you are below rational people.

it's that same bullshit people pull in every discussion of "controversial" science such as evolution and global warming (see: liek science is just a religion guys you believe in it the same way i believe dinosaur fossils were planted by god to test us and oh yeah have you seen that banana video that totally disproves evolution)

yeah it's weird how the "tip this much or you're an asshole and so is your entire race" threshold seems to creep upwards. minimum tips good, minimum wage bad

#2072643 perdue pardons wilmington 10

Posted by GOOGLE RON PAUL on 01 January 2013 - 11:08 PM

And I knew about the Insurrection of 1898, not in detail, but I knew of it as a "race war" and I always suspected that had something to do with the way blacks and whites interacted in the city thereafter. It was just a very weary feeling I would get in observing race relations there.

well keep in mind as well, many people in wilmington were either alive or had parents present when this happened:

In the 1960s and 1970s, black residents of Wilmington, North Carolina were unhappy with the lack of progress in implementing integration and other civil rights reforms legally achieved by the American Civil Rights Movement. Many struggled with poverty and lack of opportunity. The 1968 assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. increased racial tensions, with a rise in violence, including the arson of several white-owned businesses.
Racial tension increased after the 1969 integration of Wilmington high schools, as the city closed the black Williston High School, a source of community pride. It laid off black teachers, principals, and coaches, transferring students to other schools.[3] There was little preparation of whites or blacks for the changes. The school administration resisted meeting with the students to hear their grievances, including separation from friends and the lack of opportunity to play sports in new schools.[4] Several clashes between white and black students had resulted in a number of arrests and expulsions.
In response to tensions, members of a Ku Klux Klan chapter and other white supremacist groups began patrolling the streets. They hung an effigy of the white superintendent of the schools and cut his phone lines. Street violence broke out between them and black men.[3] [2]
Students decided to boycott the high schools in January 1971. In February, the United Church of Christ sent Reverend Benjamin Chavis, Jr., from their Commission for Racial Justice, to Wilmington to try to calm the situation and work with the students. He preached non-violence to them and met with students regularly at Gregory Congregational Church to discuss black history, as well as to organize the boycott.

and the subsequent wilmington 10 fiasco

lived here for like two years and I'm at school for a majority of the time. it's alright and people are nice in my experience.

this is purely anecdotal but i've heard some serious kkk sounding poo following the murder of that delivery driver last summer and that student a few weeks ago

but wilmington isn't mississippi and idk if it's actually much more racist than any other city. i think racist ppl might even be a little less likely to act on that poo considering what went down there decades ago

#2069313 Restaurant discrimination against black customers

Posted by GOOGLE RON PAUL on 30 December 2012 - 11:29 PM

hmm let me pull out my handy list of canned responses:

one time i ordered a pizza and it arrived 15 minutes late and the delivery driver was black so racism goes BOTH ways

i was once a waiter and i never discriminated so i question the results of this study

i don't blame them for altering their service depending upon their expectation of a tip. hey it's not racism it's just something called COMMON SENSE maybe you should try it sometime liberal
