Capitalism is bad because it's unfair!

And communist leaders initiating purges and causing famines and getting away with it is your idea of fairness?

"...When the authors of the Second Amendment wrote about “a well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,” what they meant was that the new country needed to protect itself against threats from other countries, like, say, England.

They were not encouraging armed insurrection...."

Uh...what does this clown think the authors of the second amendment had JUST BEEN DOING for the past several years at the time?

There's another reason.

Say you have a business man who makes 120k and his wife is a stay at home mom.  Well, their stats count her as making no income which is really complete nonsense as that 120k is actually hers just as much as it is his.

Well, I put in my SIN and it accepted it no problem.  Register at the consulate?  I don't have to go all the damn way to Vancouver do I?

If you're not in the U.S., you would have to apply for one through the US Consulate. If you were in the US, but weren't a citizen, you'd apply at the Social Security office. Documentation required of course.

Do you know how to do that?  Bureaucracy is not really my forte (thank goodness).

Question, it wants my foreign tax ID number since I'm not from the US.  Where can I find that?

Should have enough to at least offset the exchange issue which is the main goal for now.  I have a few neat ideas.

1. Donators can get a chance to be in the comic as innocent bystanders.

2. Donators can get a chance to name a character they'd like to see Dolly impersonate

Well, I've been able to fund my comic okay thus far but now the canadian-US exchange rate is REALLY crappy and making it more difficult.  If I could supplement that even just a little, it would help immensely and patreon may do the trick.  Anyone here who uses it and able to offer any advice?

There's a fellow by the name of Noah Howard responding to a post I make in the comments and oh my good sweet lord!  He actually unironically says "government is a non profit organization" and "politicians get into politics just to do some good."

How do people say this with a straight face?  How do politicians listen to it with a straight face?  Statism really is just the great conspiracy to keep a straight face.

A fun trick to show the bigotry of SJW's crystal clear.

On a youtube thread, I asked the question "Why do we get handwaved as conspiracy theorists yet patriarchy theory gets a pass?"

Well, this gentleman took issue with that and simply accused me of having no idea what patriarchy theory is.

I responded with the good old Ayn Rand quote "They'll always tell you what it isn't, never what it is."

So I got this...

Patriarchy is a concept that originates in feminist theory derived from ideas of hegemony outlined by Antonio Gramsci. In short Gramsci wrote of the larger body of social constructs that enforce the values of the ruling class on the rest of society. These are not necessarily things that people do to consciously further those thoughts, often disguised as assumptions and "common knowledge".

Feminist theory uses the term "Patriarchy" to discuss those aspects of hegemony which relate specifically to the enforcement of a gender-based hierarchy. As stated above, there is no real physical "embodiment" of these ideas, that is to say no cackling council of men yelling "BEAT WOMEN! CRUSH THEIR SPIRITS! AAAH HA HA HA HA!" (at least as far as I know). There are, however, pervasive, destructive and ridiculous assumptions that define gender relations in our culture. From the myth of Adam and Eve to shaming young boys by telling them they do things "like a girl", these reinforce ideas of man's natural dominance and woman's natural submission. And if you're noticing that the example I used is an idea that hurts men too ("you __ like a girl"), then you're starting to get the point. In short, patriarchy doesn't just hurt women, it hurts men.

As bell hooks noted in Understanding Patriarchy, "Patriarchy is the single most life-threatening social disease assaulting the male body and spirit in our nation." These roles don't just put men in "good" positions, so to speak, they posit the man as the epitome of logic and reason. Not only does that deny female rationality, it creates an environment where men expressing their emotions is considered "wrong", "weak" and "effeminate". Thus men do things like shrug off going to the doctor when they should (to be tough), bottle up their emotions, causing trauma (and abusive behavior in some case), and generally go through life trying to deny their emotional personhood.

There. I told you what it is, and even tied it back into equality-centered gender studies so you can't say I'm just advocating for female supremacy or whatever location you're no doubt going to try and move the goalposts to now.

Any questions?

Where do you even start with this?  Bald assertions all over the place including presupposing the very existence of patriarchy at all without evidence.  Terminology so vague it makes the bible look like a dictionary.
Not to mention "hit like a girl" being cited as some kind of evidence?  Why does "acting like a dick" get a pass?  Cherry picking if I ever saw it.

Equality driven gender studies course?  Don't make me laugh!  Those studies are ANYTHING but equality driven.  Sky ain't orange just because you say it is.

how private property ownership creates an imbalance of power

Yeah, because giving some central authority the power to redistribute property as it sees fit totally doesn't!

Idiot idiot idiot and double idiot! ><
