Re: "Immigration has been a net gain to the economy."

https://www.crisismagazine.com/2014/those-intolerable-catholics-in-lockes-time-and-ours This is a Catholic source. Moreover, the dire interpretation it puts on Locke did not, as a matter of historical fact, happen. I can't waste my time with your ignorance. "Locke gives a principled account of reli...

Re: Neoliberalism is good (or at least ok).

It can also artificially raise the GDP. You are the one 'being played'. Who gives a flying fuck about 'growing economy' anyway? What does it even mean? What use is a 'growing economy' to the homeless and those living below the breadline? The number of immigrants does not relate to homelessness. The...

..., and as Locke said, freedom of conscience the primary right of all, is forcible state secularization not anti-freedom? Locke said that for PROTESTANTS.

He specifically denied those rights to Catholics in much the same way and many in the US would deny them to Muslims. Getting people to throw if...

Re: "Immigration has been a net gain to the economy."

That is almost exactly the definition of secularism... You're not arguing for mere neutrality in regard to religion, but the deliberate weeding out of it all. That's the opposite of "non-abridgement." It's authoritarian, and necessarily violent as well. You're calling for forcible secular ization ,...

Re: Perception

You are talking nonsense. Thanks for seeing I am talking nonsense...for all talking is an optical and audible illusion of sound heard as words by nothing,coming from nowhere. Words describe the world you understand. The only thing to understand is that there is nothing to understand and that nothin...

Re: NEW "James" Bond to be Black Woman

i only watch YT documentaries, OLD (pre 1980's) movie, pre 2000 TV shows - on DVD and of course i still view foreign flicks - foreigners are not infected with PC, so if the story is good the director has not soldout to PC. but you have to be ok with reading subtitles. which FYI is no big deal once ...

Re: "Immigration has been a net gain to the economy."

I think we should banish all Christians to Jerusalem. The US is suppose to be secular. Actually, it's not. Its constitution forbids congress from making "any statute abridging religious freedom," which means the government is to have no opinion about religion, and favour none in particular...not th...

Re: Neoliberalism is good (or at least ok).

That might be true of your country, that has a habit of attacking other people's countries and making them unlivable. Arseholes leave it to the rest of us to pick up the pieces. I suppose you think the Ulster Plantations were a good thing and the Irish had nothing to complain about--after all, we a...

Re: NEW "James" Bond to be Black Woman

That is totally untrue. Daniel Craig put the balls back in Bond, that had been cut off by the sensitive 'feminist' Timothy Dalton and soft hearted Brosnan. The best Bond is, of course, Sean Connery, goes without saying. According to -1- Daniel Craig got castrated in a torture ritual in the last fil...

Re: "Immigration has been a net gain to the economy."

I really like Trump's idea: send all the illegal migrants to Democrat states. You're a stupid arse too, just like Trump. I think we should banish all Christians to Jerusalem. The US is suppose to be secular. So why don't you go back where your hero came from? Piss off to Bethlehem. The IDF will pro...

Trump could cure all cancer simply, cheaply, safely and they'd just shit on him for ruining part of the medical industry (then try to outlaw the cure).
Trump could always try to tell cancer to go back where it came from like a black woman!

Re: NEW "James" Bond to be Black Woman

Maybe I know what Arising meant. James Bond movies retained the name, the length and the budget of the original movies, but it has developed into a chick flick. He has become a dickless guy due to some weird torture ritual. He is so damaged he can't butter a slice of bread, but he can bore a thousa...

Re: Neoliberalism is good (or at least ok).

Yet you want open-door immigration, which 'neoliberal' govts. love. They love it because it helps their Big Business buddies with cheap labour, which forces wages down for everyone. Immigration is almost completely irrelevant. It's a side-show distraction and scapegoating for morons so they have so...
