How the World's Agricultural Boom Has Changed CO2 Cycles

epyT-R Re: Corn Subsidies (184 comments)

I should've stopped reading at 'right wing blinkers', but then I'd've stooped to an NPR level of reasoning.

I'm sure they do because countries that typically have no or weak welfare are rural, where extra hands on the farm are more valuable than the state aid.

The feminist narrative at the heart of your argument is flawed. I wasn't talking about the third world. I was specifically talking about the US system, where EBT cards are handed out to 'heroic' single mothers for the 'accomplishment' of having sex. The number one correlation for lack of maturity and success in poor children in this country is a lack of a father in the home. Then these kids grow up to repeat their parents' mistakes.

As far as 'sugar daddies' go, here in the states, the mother just waits until alimony kicks in, then divorces her 'starter husband' and the ivy league feminist indoctrinated judges award her disproportionate amounts of dad's paycheck, driving him into bankruptcy and then out of work and into debtor's prison for failing to pay. Mom, now 30ish, without any income, looks in vain for another man to latch on to (checkout dating sites for this phenomenon). Women in their 30s with children are undesirable to men who are looking for young, healthy wives to start families, so most of these women resort to fucking around on the side, purposely trying to get knocked up again so they can repeat the process.

If women want respect from and access to men's money, then they'll need to earn it as housewives while he's out making the bucks, or go out and earn their own the same way the men have to. In addition, making real life choices like the high power career OR having children, not both while expecting taxpayers and employers to prop her up, and others like her body, her right, her choice also being her responsibility, would go a long way towards earning mens' respect. This is equality of opportunity, and I have no issue with this. It's what I encourage for everyone. Until the state enforced feminist 'empowerment' is labeled as the hypocritical sexism it is, men have at least one perfectly justified reason for treating un(der)employed baby pumpers who game the system as the irresponsible dependent children they are. No one respects having to slave for another class who gets away with working less, even if it's a pauper's existence. Forcing people's hands makes them resentful. No group should be 'upsetting' any others' productive lifestyle, period, nor should the state engage in picking winners and losers.

HIV infection rate is controlled with judicious selection of sex partners. Most people, even the poor, in this country, know how to do this, but the left's insistence on destroying the family unit without suggesting viable alternatives has caused both sexes to look for sexual opportunity elsewhere, leading to dependence on the state for support, and misery on both sides.

Of course, they figure enough pressure from the poor will force redistribution..or maybe they live in rural countries where farm hands are always needed.

Just rewrite the law (abolish all the affirmative action) so that it applies to everyone equally instead of treating one side as oppressed and the other side as oppressor by default. The only way women are going to have respect as equals is if they are forced to earn it like the men.

Right. The only welfare offered by the taxpayer would be abortion and contraceptives. This way when one or both parents lose their job and the family needs assistance, they aren't encouraged to create more dependency.

People with education are smart enough to know when enough is enough, and in some cases, smart enough to know how broken DCF and 'family' court is. Welcome to the idiocracy where the uneducated and poor breed the most.

Here's What Your Car Could Look Like In 2030

epyT-R Re:Huh? (143 comments)

No. a flying car would offer way too much freedom for the plebes. There's no way the totalitarians in power would allow this.

Until freedoms and due process rights are restored, along with new statues protecting privacy, remote controlled cars (and homes and..) will only end badly.

No. I just think leftist welfare policies encourage too much breeding by those least able to provide for themselves. Just cut the funding for that. No more ebt cards for babies.

Why not just end welfare that encourages pumping out babies by poor, uneducated people?

In a Self-Driving Future, We May Not Even Want To Own Cars

epyT-R Re: In a Self-Driving Future--- (453 comments)

I am not being harsh. You're oversensitive. I'd rather have my car do my bidding than put up with a 'publicly' owned car that subjects me to whatever control freakery the state (or insurance company) wants to assert.

So if someone more powerful than you tramples your ass, you're ok with it because "Power is given, not taken"?

Your post is quite revealing, and kinda pathetic.

Blame America For Everything You Hate About "Internet Culture"

epyT-R Re:The French are the world's Standards Board (371 comments)

Like I said, it depends largely on what decade he was in school and what terms were in use while he was growing up. How many more times do the 'proper' terms have to be replaced? Perhaps the focus should be on why the terms become pejoratives over time and fix that instead. Of course, this would require a reexamination of ideology, culture, and behavior, which few have the backbone for.

Get uppity or don't. No one implied you had to get anyone's permission. I choose not to. I don't get upset if someone calls me 'cracker' or 'whitey' or 'whitebread' or 'redneck' instead of 'caucasian.' I'll laugh and call that person a slur appropriate for their race in return, whether it's in jest, or not. If he laughs in return then we've established a rapport. If he gets butthurt, then he's a hypocrite who's not worth my time. People who can't take it shouldn't dish it. Those who claim that attributes like race and sex shouldn't matter seem to spend lots of time obsessing over and enforcing the use of proper terms for them.

Or perhaps you are deluded about the France you are living in, or you are deliberately misrepresenting the truth to pass your opinion as fact. 30 years vs 50 years is not a large enough magnitude to use as justification as either offers ample opportunity to acquire this knowledge.

No. The french care about the enforcement of conformity and standardization than they do about correctness or individual liberty.

Welcome to the brainwashing that is political correctness. He might call all black people 'african americans', but that's because that's what the 'multicultural' leftist retards were teaching in school while he was young. If he used the term, it means he was trying to do the right thing. Of course, at least several european countries have the same kinds of stupidity, like refusing to acknowledge differences between the sexes because it offends idiot feminists. For example, sweden recently tried to force the use of 'ungendered' pronouns in schools, along with other stupid shit, like banning urinals.

Sounds like a typical socialist to me. No solutions, only complaints, with a narcissistic superiority complex thrown in for great (social) justice.
