'm aware of the many social democracies in Europe. I am hoping to move to one eventually. But that whole unbridled capitalism thing has a way of enslaving us, you know. These countries that have this kind of government are doing better than the US. Denmark, Sweden, Australia, Canada, Iceland, Germany, hell I'll even throw in Great Britain, are all doing better than we are at the moment.

Yeah, you are right, places like Australia don't have an armed citizenry. And how many gun deaths have they had since Sandy Hook? The US has topped beyond 85,000 since Sandy Hook. We as a nation have a problem and we are too stupid to do anything about it. Instead, most are too uptight about the government being the boogy man, which means we as the people are failing because we are the ones who vote them in. The system, overall, works minus some bad quirks but the vast majority of the problem is who we vote in. But hey, I'm growing very apathetic towards Americans because they keep voting these idiots in and demonstrate they are just as idiotic. They are handing themselves to hell in a hand basket.


I'm dealing wiht another FDR worshipper. so tedius.

the real problem is that we are not drawing in the amounts of tax money as before. why? because corporations rule this country. they have their politician whores that will do their bidding. programs that are funded by public tax dollars that are suppose to benefit that same public are instead going to corporations. our tax money is going into corporate pockets in the form of bailouts and subsidies. then, on top of that, they get a bunch of tax breaks. some companies have a negative tax rate, where they are getting more tax money back in subsides (corporate welfare) than they are putting into the system. couple all this with the billions we piss away to Israel alone in foreign aid (not to mention other nations we just hand money to) and you can see how our money is going to those who do not need it. we warmonger our money away. we spend over $700 billion a year on the military so the military industrial complex can warmonger us into oblivion. we can easily cut that in half and still be spending more than the closest rival in military spending. drop the money we cut into the pockets of the vets and the VA to get the vets the treatment and support they deserve and once that is all taken care of, apply it to other parts of our country...you know, like infrastructure.

When responding to someone's idiocy about the Koch brothers by telling them unions donate more money to plliticians thay say this.

Lol ok. You do realize that the labor unions represent workers. They push for people to be able to collectively voice their concerns. It was labor unions that helped pave the way for workers' rights and representation. The Koch brothers are trying to screw over everyone but themselves and their rich buddies. They push for fracking despite its negative affects on the environment, paying people to lie about its affects through a variety of acenues. Same goes for climate change/global warming. They purposefully mislead others by throwing money at various sources so they can continue to make more money at the expense of the American people. They are part of the Establishment and the corporate oligarchy set up in power.

General Discussion / The market and niche fando ms.
« on: June 17, 2015, 07:26:12 PM »
OK so I recently had an experience that has made me think. one of my favorite game series is Zero Escape but apparently the second game iddn't make enough profit to justify a third game which sucks because the series ended on a cliffhanger. I was talking to a friend about it and when I mentioned the series apperently didn't make enough money for a sequel he mentioend it was an issue of the market. which ahs me thinking. I tend to be a par tof a lot of niche fandoms. Things that don't get a lot of consumor or market attention. so what would it mean for somebody like me?

a scientific paper isn't going to allow me to walk in another dimension until they build a gate or something... just sayin' that's theory. basically philosophy.. nebulous guesses imo. They THINK this stuff is so, but writing it down isn't proof it's true. It's the same with religion for me.. when God and Satan come to me and say "which way do you think you should go?" I'll start to believe. until then I believe in the here and now, and as for faith I hold that only in myself.

regarding your claim that the government does not have the right to regulate business, well here is where you are wrong: the Commerce Clause from Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3 of the Constitution states that US Congress shall have power "to regulate commerce with foreign nations (Foreign Commerce Clause), and among the several states (Interstate Commerce Clause), and with the Indian tribes (Indian Commerce Clause). The Necessary and Proper Clause can also be considered in relation to the Commerce Clause.

Quote
direct your attention to Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution: here, it states that Congress has the power to organize, arm and DISCIPLINE (aka regulate according to any dictionary) the militia. Plus, it states later on, that the individual states can enforce regulations prescribed by Congress, and appoint officers of the militia. If you look up the word "militia," you will see that it is a body of citizens who are responsible for the defense and public safety of communities...much like how the police department is now doing. militias are the predecessors to the police department. also, the militia can be used by the government in leiu of a standing army. George Washington even used militias to put down armed rebellions. one of the biggest concerns was that there shouldn't be a standing army in peace time, and the Constitution even suggests the standing army be reviewed every two years to see whether it should be defunded and disbanded. our founding fathers didn't want a standing army in peacetime and thought a militia would be best for community policing and defense.

Quote
so, the Second Amendment is about militias. the right to keep and bear arms is granted to the body of citizens in a militia, but only if that militia meets the standards/regulations prescribed by the government.
