Well being that you're a sociopath, I suspect you would be very content. You made yourself and your associates a great deal of money.

Google it... with the quotes... I thought you would have seen the news

My opinion for Bush is moving toward a meeting with my opinion of Obama somewhere around mediocrity.
Neither dude seems terribly interested in pursuing the fundamental threats to liberty in the United States.
I can venture a tiny shred of sympathy for Bush, given the way he's been relentlessly pilloried by the propaganda mongers in the media.
Ultimately, though, we're reaping a century of Holy Progress, and there isn't much need to whinge on about the stuffed shirts that have brought us this ruin.

Mediocrity?? Is that what you call the wars, torture, spying, etc. now? They are far from mediocre, and have gone above and beyond expectations. They have successfully domesticated the populous better than in any other country, the only surprise being how easy it is. I am confident that their business partners are very pleased. Let me know when you see past the fluff.

Re:"...I'm a content man." (1)

I call "the wars, torture, spying, etc. now?" what we have permitted our government to do.

Let me know when you see past the fluff.

Oh, buzz off, boss. I have seen past the fluff. The only cure is more, continuous engagement from the people. We can trade cynical riffs back and forth ad nauseum. Tell me what you're actively doing to alter the societal course in any other direction, please.

...what we have permitted our government to do.

Yes, and we will continue to let them do even more of the same, and worse. That includes all of you people with your 'lesser evil' crap. Bush, and all the others have done a very competent job of doing what they were hired to do.

Oh, buzz off, boss. I have seen past the fluff.

I have to doubt that. You have a funny way of showing it. Your obsession with a single artifact of our animal behavior indicates a certain lack of depth. All you do is quote other Internet pundits (more like putzes). I have every reason to believe that you will continue to vote for their hand picked successors. Your personal Romney 'campaign' during the last cycle provides evidence of that. You know what they say about di Nile..

After you're done buzzing off, you can buzz off some more. Here you condescendingly bag on me for doing what I think correct--to wit, supporting principles of individual liberty--and all I get is this bored-of-life piffle in reply.
You're either accepting the status crap, or diligently working toward an alternative. And if you're flinging poo at those doing the latter, then you're really about the former.
Stand, deliver, and describe an acceptable course, sir.

Re:"...I'm a content man." (1)

fustakrakich (1673220) | about a year ago | (#43590729)

:-) Ah, so that's your game, eh? Unless you can provide an alternative to marketing and perpetrating murder and mayhem for profit, we're gonna keep on doing it. Yeah, that's the ticket. I only 'accept' the status crap to same the same extent that you do. I only reflect your attitude. So if I appear to be trolling, then clear up your cultural cataract and take a better look at yourself. One thing I can guarantee you is that you do not support the principles of individual liberty, certainly not outside the boundaries of your cultural conditioning. It is clear that your privileged status that you wish to protect is invisible to you, it is the default, so accustomed you are to living it, like breathing itself. Everything else is hedonism and idolatry and should be severely punished. The status crap is precisely what you are propping up, and quite literally, by the nature of your very occupation You will do anything to turn your back on the consequences of what you do, and accusations of accusations are all you have left to argue. Pavlov and Skinner have you all pegged, all the way down to the most basic level.

So, you're a refined version of the argument clinic, accusing, accusing, accusing.

You accuse me of rank fascism? With what specific evidence, sir?
Your critical theory approach has its chief value as fertilizer. Would that its vile, content-free nature had been understood long ago.

Do you really have to go and make shit up now? The observations are nothing out of the ordinary. People are driven by instinct and conditioning. What are you so upset about?

And let's see how your agriculture does without a little fertilizer. Content free is the five gallon bucket of current events you are drowning in.

I'm nonplussed by a pointed finger backed by 0 evidence.

Re:"...I'm a content man." (1)

fustakrakich (1673220) | about a year ago | (#43649501)

I actually believe it is upon you to provide evidence that you are any different from anybody else.

Re:"...I'm a content man." (1)

smitty_one_each (243267) | about a year ago | (#43649665)

How can I possibly be different? Same periodic table of elements, same chromosomes. No magic.

Re:"...I'm a content man." (1)

fustakrakich (1673220) | about a year ago | (#43649835)

Precisely... That's why I wonder what I am supposed to be 'accusing' you of.

Re:"...I'm a content man." (1)

smitty_one_each (243267) | about a year ago | (#43650833)

Well, you should accuse me of standing for individual liberty, minimalist government, fiscal sanity, and a disdain for fallacies that have their roots in Rousseau or Marx's piffle.

Re:"...I'm a content man." (1)

fustakrakich (1673220) | about a year ago | (#43680881)

Well, you should accuse me of standing for individual liberty...

But you don't... And apparently you believe it's perfectly okay for a person to buy up whole continents and fence them off and charge an entry fee (that's from a previous post you made against any limits on property 'ownership'). Land, air, and water are not yours to claim. Only the things you make and keep can be. Liberty is an antithesis to property claims of natural resources.

I can understand how your desire for authority via your deity clouds your thoughts on Rousseau.. The biggest fault (amongst a few others) I've discovered so far is his belief in the superiority of the patriarchy.

Re:"...I'm a content man." (1)

smitty_one_each (243267) | about a year ago | (#43681133)

perfectly okay for a person to buy up whole continents

I mean: yeah. If there's a market.

Land, air, and water are not yours to claim.

Really. You're invalidating all of our existing property law, titles, as well as a swath of international law, just like that? You go girl!
I'm sincerely in pursuit of Truth.

I can understand how your desire for authority via your deity clouds your thoughts on Rousseau.

So, if you can out-Christ the Christ, I'll just drop everything and come over to your camp.

Re:"...I'm a content man." (1)

fustakrakich (1673220) | about a year ago | (#43681507)

I mean: yeah. If there's a market.

And that, sir, is what makes all your arguments against the 'state' pure bullshit. The market is the state. In fact that is true today. The 'market' is what created the 'state'. That is where the rules come from, even the ones you claim are 'socialist'. Eh, thanks anyway for providing a future reference when I need it.

You're invalidating all of our existing property law, titles, as well as a swath of international law, just like that?

Yeah and? It has to happen if we are to shed our animal desires and become human. Otherwise nuclear poo flinging talking chimps is all we (yes, even you!) will ever be.

Your 'Christ' is a utopian fantasy and cannot exist in this physical universe. He will be killed every time he shows up. And besides that, you already dismiss most of the philosophy of the 'Christ' out of hand. You use your religion is a crutch to prop up your authority. The biblical Christ is much more a 'live and let live' type. The so called conservatism you practice is more anti-Christ.
