So, NTR, "bitch" or "ho"? The rap artist want to know how to sing about you after you get yourself killed approaching young black men at 2 AM to show how liberal you are. I think that was very nice of them to offer you a choice.

She was a nasty-ass cracka
Always looking to be fair
Till some home boys attacked her
Now she's as dead as Fred Astaire

Well, it's a work in progress....

Let me help you out stooge

Your exact statement:

"We"......Are you the leader of a tribe of idiots and embeciles, or is the "we" simply the voices in your head?
end quote

I know that you're used to changing the facts and just flat making things up, but you cannot refute you're words in print.

I simply stated that there was no "we" in my post, and that due to your regular run on drivel that I did not bother to read the rest.

You are delusional coupled with abysmal reading comprehension skills, which would explain why what you read is not what plays out in your tiny brain.

Keep it coming NTR, one day you may actually be on target, but highly unlikely.

"Feudalism usually emerged as a result of the decentralization of an empire: especially in the Japanese and Carolingian (European) empires which both lacked the bureaucratic infrastructure necessary to support cavalry without the ability to allocate land to these mounted troops. Mounted soldiers began to secure a system of hereditary rule over their allocated land and their power over the territory came to encompass the social, political, judicial, and economic spheres.[20]

These acquired powers significantly diminished centralized power in these empires. Only when the infrastructure existed to maintain centralized power—as with the European monarchies—did Feudalism begin to yield to this new organized power and eventually disappear."

and Marx would concur (in my opinion) that the union of elitists and the clergy i.e. Roman Catholicism further created a peasant class,child labor,social discrimination..

I am so smart its amazing!

"Marx described feudalism as the economic situation coming before the rise of capitalism. For Marx, what defined feudalism was that the power of the ruling class (the aristocracy) rested on their control of arable land, leading to a class society based upon the exploitation of the peasants who farm these lands, typically under serfdom"

Lying with Statistics
By MattBeaven on June 28, 2013 in Economics

Everywhere you go, someone is throwing some statistic at you and telling a story. Most of us believe the story because it is based on “science”— statistical research results. This is especially true in social media where stories based on statistics are blindly accepted by millions of people over a short period of time. I know because many of my Facebook friends share these studies and even post comments about how horrible something is based on the information they’ve been provided.

The problem is, the story is usually a lie.

“But they have data to prove it!” you might reply. Oh yes, they have the data. But they are like a magician playing a slight of eye trick on you. Next time you hear of a scientific study or statistical research results, take a moment to dig deeper. Ask questions. Stop blindly accepting the stories you are told.

Below is a video I came across that does a good job breaking down the “income inequality” lie believed by many. You might need to watch two or three times to catch all the details of the argument’s analysis.

The video being criticized can be found here.
http://youtu.be/QPKKQnijnsM

A few points from this analysis:

Income does not equate wealth.

Wealth is not static; one’s place in the distribution changes over time.

Wealth is not only affected by income but by spending and performance of investments.

Study results may be very different depending on if benefits like healthcare are included.

Results also vary significantly if they look at pre-tax wealthy & pre-welfare (or other benefits) poor vs. post distribution of wealth.

Over time, almost everyone makes drastic jumps in wealth.

Change in average household size may distort the measuring of average household wealth.

So next time one of your friends shares a misleading story based on flawed statistical analysis, point them here. You might also want to check out a related post concerning the problem with scientific studies.

Obama has done a good job of deporting criminal illegals:

...
In FY 2012, ICE says it removed 409,849 illegal aliens. Fifty-five percent of them (or 225,390) were convicted criminal aliens, the largest number of criminal aliens removed in agency history, ICE said.- See more at: http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/us-border...

But not smart enough to know that "its" and "it's" are not the same thing. Why should we be impressed with something you cut & paste? That's most of your post. I do agree you probably have a good handle on Marx though. So, does the Marxist in the White House agree with you too? If you could tell us that we will certainly be amazed. As it is now?...Not so much.

Once again the liberals caught misrepresenting the facts:

Boehner says Congress "should not be judged by how many new laws we create."

Hey beggar granny,

I don't think you'd find anyone here willing to pizz on you even if you were on fire.

Keep that hand out demanding what you've never earned from hardworking taxapayers, and yes, you do demand it from others.

If you didn't, you would simply fade away and perish for your lack of important earlier life choices.

Therefore you must rely on the taxpayer to foot your bills for you.
It just isn't fair, you gaming the system with your hand out in everyone else's pockets like that.

Why should I or anyone else pay your way through life, through our taxes, simply because of the poor life choices that you made?
