Re: Massive Mass Reparations for African-Americans

'African American' has to be the stupidest label to date (after a string of stupid labels). At what point do they become 'actual' Americans? After about 400 years, at what point does one stop being 'African'? Do these illiterate Americans even know that Africa is a massive continent, made up of man...

Research it yourself. I'm not your mother.

Re: Racial Alternatives

Wow! Two in a row I agree with. I'd only add, stop identifying anyone in terms of any collective--race, ethnicity, nationality, or whatever characteristics they are born with or who their relatives are and treat everyone as the individual they choose to be. Shows how little you understand ... Not t...

Re: Racial Alternatives

The one I'm in favor of is "how about everyone stop thinking about anything in terms of race"? I'll go with that. Wow! Two in a row I agree with.

Re: Garbage In Garbage Out

'Except' the truth? Is that really what the little inspirational meme writer intended to say? Probably yes. It depends how the 'meme' is interpreted. To me personally, it is saying...( stop wasting time on other peoples truths, except your own ) Although, it could be seen to be misleading, as the w...

Re: Racial Alternatives

Co founder of ''Black lives matter'' is a true 'woke progressive' of the highest order. She doesn't care about 'colour' at all, which is why she has just bought four high end properties in predominantly 'white' neighbourhoods. I am sure that all the wokies who have donated a hundred million dollars ...

Re: this is not the straw man you're looking for

...countries like Norway, Canada, New Zealand etc? I can see a huge difference. Russia, China, Venezuela, etc. are Socialist. Canada, Norway, New Zealand, etc. are capitalist. Norway runs on its abundant oil supplies, sold on the free market, or it would not be able to sustain its social programs f...

Re: this is not the straw man you're looking for

Venezuela, Cuba This shit has got to stop. Both Venezuela and Cuba are socialist success stories. They were as good as they could be in the face of massive US interference and frankly are still doing better than America would have done with them if they'd been colonized. Venezuela only turned sour ...

Re: this is not the straw man you're looking for

So where do you live then? North Korea? Afghanistan? North Korea is Socialist. It's a totalitarian dictatorship. I do realise that you have caught the idiocrity bug that originated in the US, whereby everything is either 'commie' or 'other', but the world is actually a whole lot more complex than t...

Re: this is not the straw man you're looking for

But empirically, no version that has ever been tried so far in the real world, when allowed to run the economy and organize the political structure, has ever resulted in anything other than economic collapse, tyranny and murder, sot they've got that in common, too. So presumably you are including y...
