Van Jones compares Obama inaugural address to 'Django Unchained'
On Monday, former green jobs czar Van Jones compared President Obama's inaugural speech to Quentin Tarantino's bloody movie "Django Unchained" in a tweet described by Twitchy as "borderline racist."
"Two-word description of the Inaugural Address:
'Djobama Unleashed,'" he tweeted.
As we reported in early January, a number of people who saw "Django Unchained" expressed a desire to kill white people in violent, racist tweets.
.

.
"After watching Django, all I wanna do is shoot white people," one person tweeted.

.
.
The former Obama adviser who once admitted being a communist,
issued a tweet earlier in the week,
for example, falsely claiming that members of the NRA want to shoot police and soldiers.
"Does #NRA think US Const protects 'right' 2 shoot USA cops & soldiers? Keep saying folks need big guns 2 fight our govt. Um...#Treason?(sic)" he tweeted.
..........

Gun confiscation by Obama is part of this plan.

Last September, 18-year-old Michael Smeriglio of Port St. Lucie, Florida shot off his penis and one of his testicles with a gun he had just purchased. A year earlier, an Arizona man blew his penis off after tucking his girlfriend's pink pistol into the waistband of his pants. And in 2010, a Washington man lost his testicles after a gun tucked into his waistband accidentally discharged."

so under your logic what does that tell you about handgun owners?

Yes, I seem to be trapped inside this bubble of reality. Somehow the objective, verifiable facts in here prevent me from thinking outside this bubble.

No worries Dan the Man. This is a Clearfield board... remember... this area is and has been near the bottom in terms of wealth and education. Don't expect intelligent discussion. People here have been voting in Republicans for 30 years and how's that worked out for the area? Well, it's gone steadily downhill. It will continue that trend with the continued leadership of Glenn Thompson and now Sankey. Having seen Thompson speak, I'm amazed anyone would vote for the guy at all... total moron.

Aside from failing in social and economic terms, the area is doing very well! Let's keep the same leaders! We're overtaxed, surely that is the issue! People here get what they deserve, and I for one feel no pity for the stupid. God doesn't answer prayers by people too stupid to help themselves. For proof of stupidity due to lack of factual understanding, see nearly any comment by TaxNoMore, who makes Rush Limbaugh sound like an intellectual force. The dumb hicks here could benefit by reading actual books that make one think. No I'm not talking about Rush's latest book, or a column written by a right-wing hack, blog, or website... try a book, a real one... just for example Rawls' Theory of Justice, or Locke's 2nd Treatise on Government. Nah... let's get real... the masses here will stick with the latest issue of Guns & Ammo. As I said, they get the society they deserve. Sadly, they're just ruining the area for future generations who can't help that they were born here.

I think that it is fair to say that most Americans have only a passing knowledge of the writings of philosophers such as Plato, Thomas More, Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Charles de Montesquieu and Alexis de Toqueville.
Some would attribute this to the "dumbing down of America" that has been inexorably taking place in our schools over the past half-century or so.
But the truth is that all of these individuals as well as Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels have exerted a great deal of influence over American political thought in the 235 years of our nation's existence.
Plato, More, Hobbes and of course Karl Max all come down on the side of "collectivist" or "utopian" states whereby individuals must necessarily become subservient to the interests of the state.
In such an environment individuals
"must be managed and suppressed by masterminds for the greater good."
There is no tolerance for individual self-interest or even self-preservation.
A person's labor and property belong to the state or are controlled by the state.

Lol. So now philosophy is a liberal pursuit. You can complain about philosophers as you please, and you can throw out Marx and Engels and I can throw out Ayn Rand, who was just as dangerous, if not more so. Her thought is essentially what you're espousing. No one I'm aware of, not even liberals, have anything against self-interest. But your believe in free market solutions to everything is absurd because the market doesn't solve all social problems. I think your views on which philosophers espoused collectivist or utopian views are also just wrong; and in any case nearly all philosophers believe the end of the philosophy will be utopia. Ayn Rand espoused her utopia as well, so it's not as if your own philosophy is immune from your own criticism.

Finally, I think your belief that certain philosophies having exerted influence, although true for some time, have certainly faded in recent times. You sound just flat out willfully ignorant or crazy. Do you recall Bush and his GOP congress? Not too long ago we had Ayn Rand philosophy running the country. Result - near depression. Since Reagen, every GOP admin has exploded our date. It really took off with Reagen. Continued with HW Bush. Clinton finally fixed their mess, we get surplus, and along comes W Bush to screw it up all over again, but worse. And now the liberals are left to clean up the mess. Supply side economics is a failure, bottom line. I repeat - 12 years of tax cuts on the wealthy ... your so-called job creators ... and where are the jobs? Nowhere... the economy basically failed entirely. Obama cleaned up the mess, put the brakes on unemployment, and got it back under control down to the level it was when he took over. From 4.7 to 7.8 under W Bush... over just a 2 year period. From 7.8 to 9.8 back to 7.8 in 4 years under Obama. Someone turned it around, and it was Obama with no help at all from the GOP, who has been obstructing him at every turn. Facts matter. Continue the willfull ignorance.

Blathering on about pie in the sky philosophers is one thing. Giving their ideas power is quite another. If mankind were to be a unit of production for the state, don't you think he would have aspired to that "lofty" goal by now? We are not ants. Society is not an anthill. "But Plato said...." Plato didn't know sh8t! He just wrote good novels. How come we've had governments for at least six thousand years and they've all been overthrown! Or failed in some way or another. Was it that the govts just weren't powerful enough to curb the rebellious instincts of the people? Is more Govt power the answer? Funny thing though, America, with it's libertarianism for two hundred years produced the greatest upsurge in Human achievements that the world has ever known. More human happieness, health, economic power, scientific accomplishments and individual wealth.

The Clinton Surplus Myth wrote:
<quoted text>
Clinton ran deficits throught all 8 years of his term, and one can go to the US Treasury Department and looking through the history of the total outstanding debt through Clintons term.
Every year Clinton was in office, the total national debt continued to climb.
How Clinton managed to claim a surplus was that while the general operating budgets ran deficits but Clinton borrowed from numerous off budget funds to make the on budget fund a surplus.
For example, in 2000, Clinton claimed a $230B surplus, but Clinton borrowed
$152.3B from Social Security
$30.9B from Civil Service Retirement Fund
$18.5B from Federal Supplementary Medical insurance Trust Fund
$15.0B from Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund
$9.0B from the Federal Unemployment Trust Fund
$8.2B from Military Retirement Fund
$3.8B from Transportation Trust Funds
$1.8B from Employee Life Insurance & Retirement fund
$7.0B from others
Total borrowed from off budget funds $246.5B, meaning that his $230B surplus is actually a $16.5B deficit.
($246.5B borrowed -$230B claimed surplus =$16.5B actual deficit).
If there is ever a true surplus, then the national debt will go down.
the national debt did not go down one year during the Clinton administration.
The rate of growth of the national debt slowed under Clinton, and he left office with budget surpluses and the national debt on track to be eliminated by 2013.

Maybe not crazy, but intellectually dishonest. E.g.: changing the terms of the debate by "throwing sand in your opponents eyes." Changing "debt limit debate" to "debt crisis" and then we have to solve the "debt crisis" which has nothing to due with the debt limit. And then with the help of FOX you manufacture a crisis in the public forum that is not there.
It's hard to understand how people can keep defending trickle down economics when time and again it has proven ineffective. Income inequality is the highest it's been since the roaring 20s. Cutting taxes on the rich doesn't create jobs unless a balance is built in. The government has to off-set the desire of the wealthy to pocket the extra revenue rather than either 1. hire more workers; or 2. pay their existing workers more money.
Those disagree with me are not crazy. They are evil. And I am all good. End of story.
