#3302233 Obamas Trans Pacific Partnership

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on Today, 02:56 PM

this is why it's funny when people think obama is a liberal on much of anything besides pet social issues for evangelicals

 

Those on the right cannot call Obama what he really is when it comes to trade policies and Wall Street because they are in bed with him all the way. 

 

So they simply call him a socialist when in reality he and the rest of GOP/TP are bought and paid for crony corporatist, fascist stooges.

Well darn. Look at all those minorities protesting homosexual marriage.

Abolish the income tax, get government out of marriage, and have a national flat sales tax. Deal?

 

It might be a basis for negotiations

 

How about, get the government out of marriage and get religion out of government.  Develop a simplified tax code, eliminating loop holes, reducing rates and incorporate a flat tax for the vast majority of citizens.

When these evangelical clowns start banning divorcees from darkening the doorstep of their establishments, then I may start taking them seriously.

 

 1 Corinthians 7:10-11 - And unto the married I command, [yet] not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from [her] husband:   (Read More...)

Matthew 5:32 - But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Matthew 19:6 - Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Matthew 19:9 - And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except [it be] for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

Romans 7:2 - For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to [her] husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of [her] husband.

Mark 10:12 - And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

 

What they are doing by railing against the gay community amounts to nothing more than cherry picking from the bible to justify their personal bigotry and hate.

Not sure where it said anything in the bible like what's happening there...oh and fug Indiana

 

It didn't.  At this point it shouldn't have to be spelled out to anyone where this hatred is derived from. 

 

Let me take a wild guess, the gay hate is largely supported by Indiana republican state politicians and inspired by their evangelical christian supporters.

 

The phenomenon of gay hate is wide spread in red states across this nation. 

 

The hate has persisted publicly long enough now that it should be intuitively obvious to the most casual of observers where the primary source of support for these pro-bigotry laws emanate from.

 

Evangelical Christians, who profess an undying love of Christ, are actively supporting an agenda of hate for those who do not submit to their "Christian" views of morality.

 

Evangelicals are little more than the Christian version of the Taliban.

George Wallace

 

The 1960s must have been a nightmare for twylyght as minorities and women rebelled against "community morality" across the country. 

 

These nonconformists of "community morality" could not be made to behave with water cannons, nightsticks, beatings, bullets or hangings.  Not that those failed efforts deterred the community leaders from continuing to try and bring these minorities to heel.

 

It is no coincidence that with the destruction of the voting rights act by the conservatively controlled USSC that many of these communities immediately reverted to their once federally prohibited discriminatory practices.

 

"States Rights", code for, right to discriminate without federal intervention.

 

Hello Indiana, not surprised by your behavior.  You once had more members of the KKK per capita than any other state in the union.
 

A recent article in the local newspaper, The Daily Ledger, reported: "During the 1920's in Noblesville, virtually everyone was a Klansman. If you didn't belong to the Ku Klux Klan, you essentially weren't part of the community."

 

Today the Klan has fallen on hard times, said Joe Roy, the chief investigator for Klanwatch, an Alabama-based organization that monitors hate groups.

 

"The white supremacy movement is pretty much in disarray," Mr. Roy said, adding that lawsuits and Federal police efforts had severely weakened the Klan in the last decade.

 

"What's really hurting the movement -- but could ultimately save it -- is the militia phenomenon that's sweeping the country," he said. "It's soaking up a lot of potential Klan members."

#3291227 Glenn Beck: Out of the GOP

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 19 March 2015 - 04:17 PM

States Rights resulted in the 2/3rds compromise, the Civil War and Jim Crow.

 

It took a strong central government to solve all these issues.

 

Today we have states like Texas trying to white wash American history and ban teaching of critical thinking skills in public schools.

 

"States Rights"

 

Code for:  We want our freedom to oppress minorities and indoctrinate children with our ancient superstitious beliefs, but that big ol' federal government tells us we can't do it any more! 

 

Oh, lord help us!  We white folk are so oppressed!

 

 




#3290431 Someone explain the: Iran/USA Agreement/Treaty issue.

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 19 March 2015 - 01:01 AM

I agree that needless conflicts hurt more than they help.

But as the world's greatest super power other countries are going to propagandize against the USA whether it be true or just a way for foreign leaders to remain in power.

We can rail about the mistakes of our past all day, but we still have to protect the present and the future.

Your view is idealistic but not realistic, in my humble opinion

 

Buying into the neo con propaganda that Iran is led by crazy religious zealots that crave conflict with Israel and would willingly subject their nation to nuclear holocaust if only they had "the bomb" is without any basis in reality.

 

If Iran were the standard for international behavior there would rarely be war in the Middle East or anywhere else on the planet.  By rarely, I mean centuries without starting any war, not months.

 

It is our "allies" like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Qatar who are the some of the biggest sponsors of terrorism by proxy.  Along with the United States' questionable behavior during the last few decades, these countries have enabled ISIS to overrun much of Syria and Iraq.  Even US military generals testifying before congress recently admitted that the progress in rolling back ISIS in Iraq is due in large part to Iran's efforts, unassisted by the US or any of our allies.

 

The biggest issue the US has had with Iran over the years is their sponsorship of the Palestinian people with military and financial aid.

 

Anyone that has researched the Israeli/Palestinian issue with any objectivity would recognize that the treatment of the Palestinians by the Israeli government is abysmal at best and were it not for numerous US vetoes in the UN, the international community would have held Israel accountable for their terrible behavior decades ago.

 

Even the republicans recognized this at one time.  It has only been since the rise of the evangelical right in the 80's that Israel's political support in this country has gone from strong to unassailable.  The irony being there is little love between the Jewish people and Christian evangelicals, they are using one another as a means to an end.




#3290372 Glenn Beck: Out of the GOP

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 18 March 2015 - 10:41 PM

I think despite midterm elections Republican Party is on suicide watch.
 

I think there is a ideological Civil War and the coalition is being held together only by the mutual rabid and paranoid hate/fear of the Democrats socialist/communist/Muslim/LGBT/47%/minority/hipster/undocumented worker/universal healthcare/women and children's rights alliance.

 

FIFY

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 18 March 2015 - 08:41 PM

Glenn Beck is about as "Independent" as g5.

 

In other words...

 

GOP's crazy train policies no longer meet the off the rails expectations Beck's political views demand.

If you don't have your health, you have nothing.

 

This saying resonates more with me as my friends and family age.

 

Poor health decisions when we're young exact their revenge as time goes by.




#3289941 Someone explain the: Iran/USA Agreement/Treaty issue.

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 18 March 2015 - 04:45 PM

America has abandoned the moral high ground in international affairs in recent decades.

 

When you are the biggest baddest kid on the block you make all the rules.

 

So this ^^^ is all we have left to justify our actions. 

 

Sadly too many Americans these days think this is justification enough.

 

Our fallen WWII vets are likely turning in their graves, having sacrificed their lives in the Middle East, Pacific and European theaters fighting this very dangerous way of thinking.

 

On the other hand, those of you that endorse this type of behavior have some famous like minded compatriots in the annals of history, such as Benito Mussolini, Adolf Hitler, Hidefi Tojo and Joseph Stalin to name just a few.

 

 

 

 

 




#3289530 Just a reminder on how "supporting our troops" actually works

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 18 March 2015 - 01:55 PM

Goood Morrrning Vietnam!


A loss that proved we did not care about our troops. We neglected all those that were injured, physically and mentally. If we cannot take care of our troops now, why send them to battle? It is no different then as it is now, don't get it twisted. If you have no clear objective, why send them to battle? It is no different then as it is now, don't get it twisted. Warmongers are on both sides. It is no different then as it is now. Maybe some statesmen like Walter Jones apologize and even fight with in the party by blasting the "Dick" Cheney. Until you realize this point, the MIC has its fingers wrapped around most politicians and also job (faux) creation with a lot of states.

Patriotic flag waving, French fry hating, politicians and citizens are all too quick to unleash the US military on yet another fool's errand such as Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria or soon Iran.  Yet they never seem to seriously contemplate the cost of these conflicts in lives or treasure. 

 

We're now closing in on almost ten thousand American soldiers/civilian lives lost and trillions in tax payer dollars squandered for a never-ending series of  international conflicts.

 

However, when veteran's organizations ask for millions to help repair broken bodies and transition soldiers back into civilian society, well that is simply too much to ask.  It might bust the national budget!   What a lame excuse. 

 

Especially after congress continues to give billion dollar tax breaks to some of the richest people and corporations the world has ever known.  Quite frankly, it is utter bullshyt.

 

It is way past time for the general public and the majority of the US Senate to come clean and admit they are nothing more than sunshine patriots.  Proudly displaying their US flag lapel pins at every opportunity and getting giddy at the thought of blowing up some more little brown people in distant lands.  All based on convoluted war mongering neo con propaganda.

 

Those who really run this nation don't give a whit about the welfare of US soldiers after-the-fact or the willfully ignorant American public that continues to endorse every contrived justification to unleash American death and destruction around the globe. 

 

In the final analysis, what does it matter?  Just as long as those who control the levers of power in this nation get what they desire, their cherished tax breaks.




#3287651 John Oliver on the NCAA

Posted by NanuqoftheNorth on 17 March 2015 - 09:35 AM

I'm totally okay with NCAA athletes being paid if athlete scholarships for those athletes are dissolved, and they instead have to compete in the pool of merit scholarships. (actually this would be fuged up, but I'm feeling argumentative today :P)

 

It annoys me that academic institutions have become minor leagues for certain professions.

 

Ideally minor leagues should be established for football and basketball similar to what exists today for baseball.

 

Colleges and universities should get back to focusing on their original intent, higher education.

 

Realistically this will likely never happen, so the students will need to organize to get their cut.

 

Time to stop pretending this is about "Student-Athletes".

 

NCAA basketball and football have largely morphed from being full time students playing amateur sports to full time athletes playing amateur students.

Sweet deal for those at the top of the pyramid.
 
However the vast majority of players are getting the shaft.
 
Players should unionize for disability, better work hours and monetary compensation.
