Experiment Shows People Exposed To East German Socialism Cheat More

fascismforthepeople Your script is out of whack (619 comments)

Let me apply some facts to your bit so what you spewed out reflects reality instead of religious fantasy:

it is the correct variable, what do you think the policies of the church of ron paul lead to? Massive poverty, lack of equality under the law, loss of all opportunities to get out of poverty.

...

Sure, you can say that the problem is poverty, but poverty in unregulated free market countries came from unregulated free markets - lack of private ownership and operation of property due to hyperconcentration of wealth, lack of individual freedoms.

...

If the law is applied differently to some people even in such concepts as different tax brackets and different tax breaks you will have less economic freedom, less initiative, fewer opportunities, fewer people trying to get ahead

Amazingly that statement needs no adjustments. You just described the ambitions of your fascist cult for us in great clarity.

Of-course there are very few moral people in an immoral system.

Precisely. I could hardly image a less moral system than the one you have been advocating endlessly here. Being as you are one of the system's top cheerleaders I don't see how you could possibly be able to help bring about the rise of any moral people, though.

Google Tries To Defuse Glass "Myths"

fascismforthepeople Re:Not myths (363 comments)

I don't have a problem with people taking matters into their own hands on this and yanking those devices of faces of the wearers and simply stomping on them.

You used to support private property. Now you support the destruction of private property, if its existence offends you. Did your cult leader tell you this somehow is not a contradiction in terms? You keep telling us that your beliefs are absolute yet you keep going back on them.

But of course, this contradiction is just another part of your aspirations. When you give people a false sense of entitlement if makes it that much easier to bring about fascism for the people.

South Carolina Woman Jailed After Failing To Return Movie Rented Nine Years Ago

fascismforthepeople Re:Economically Inefficient (467 comments)

Arresting someone for theft under $10 ("Monster-In-Law" on DVD retails for about $5)

The cost for the store was much higher than that. Rental outlets don't just go to walmart and buy DVDs, they had to get them with rental licenses from the studios (ever notice the FBI warning on the discs you buy, warning you not to rent it out?). We can probably assume it was a reasonably new release when it was rented, so the cost was something closer to $50 per disc.

A more efficient punishment would be to seize wages/tax refunds/etc. in the amount of the theft + some additional punitive amount.

That is reasonable, but do the math in a reasonable manner to reflect the true cost to the merchant.

Rand Paul Files Suit Against Obama Over NSA's Collection of Metadata

fascismforthepeople Re:Cult leader's son behaving like a cult leader (380 comments)

People are stupid. thats all there is too it, Look at the last 5 elections or so for proof of that.

Your grammar supports that notion.

the senate was intended to be voted on by the smart people in the house, not by the dumb people all over the country

Did you get that idea from watching a youtube video somewhere? The fact that senators used to be appointed has as much to do with logistics as anything, there were many states that previously were incapable of managing statewide elections (they had their governors appointed for the same reason).

When we elect people based on promises of what they will give me, we are all doomed. With all that in mind, yes taking the senate back from the people actually would be in our best interest.

Then why have representative government at all? Your argument could apply just as well to the house, the governorship, and any state legislature - and of course the Presidency as well - as it does to the US Senate. What is so special about the senate if you don't trust people to elect their own politicians?

... and of course that says nothing about what you believe a politician will "give" you. Do you believe that your preferred leader will reduce your taxes or something?

In the end your arguments are very very similar to those of the cult members we see around here. You are arguing for producing more power for those who hold the most power, and fascism for the people.

What Would You Do With the World's Most Powerful Laser?

Would the uninhibited free market that some people champion have been able to create this? Maybe it could have, but we haven't seen it happen yet. This was the collaboration of a lot of people, building on a lot of publicly funded work.

Rand Paul Files Suit Against Obama Over NSA's Collection of Metadata

fascismforthepeople try as you might (380 comments)

Obama and his administration should be sued and should be impeached, and it's not just for surveillance, the fucking guy is a murderer and he brags about it [youtube.com]. It shouldn't be just an action class lawsuit, it should be a criminal investigation into this mass murderer.

how will you install your religious movement - and its leader - in place of him? if you somehow find a way to impeach obama, you still have that pesky problem of the fact that the us is still a democracy and none of your religious leaders are in line to inherit the presidency, even if you throw out obama and biden. of course, you don't see elections as more than an inconvenience. your movement has shown a keen interest in discarding elections in order to bring more power to your leaders.

and that is how you want to bring more power for the wealthy, and fascism for the people.

Where's the rest of your comment? You usually follow up every comment you post here with scripture from your religious leader. How will I know which part of your statement to love - and which part to hate - if you don't link to a youtube scripture reading?

Rand Paul Files Suit Against Obama Over NSA's Collection of Metadata

fascismforthepeople Re:Pick your favorite amendments! (380 comments)

You know he wants to end the Federal reserve right? Can you imagine ANY "corporate fat cat" liking that idea?

He does way more than enough for corporate America to make up for closing the Fed. Not that he could do it on his own - at least, not with the current constitutionally defined division of power - but that wouldn't stop him from trying.

but basically all the money in corporate America will be against him should he get nominated.

You're joking, right? The way he advocates for the elimination of taxes for the top wage earners makes him the wet dream of corporate America.

His only real chance is if the market collapse we all know is coming, hits before the election.

Oh, I see. You're a cult member yourself. Now your post makes sense.

Rand Paul Files Suit Against Obama Over NSA's Collection of Metadata

fascismforthepeople Re:Cult leader's son behaving like a cult leader (380 comments)

In the case of Rand Paul, he is one of the VERY few members of Congress who seem to actually have the people's best interests at heart.

Really? In what way is the elimination of representation of the people in the senate, or decrease of upper income taxation at the expense of the lower income brackets, an example of having "the people's best interests at heart"?

Rand Paul has open disdain for other amendments of the constitution. He is using the fourth amendment to bring more attention to his presidential aspirations but when his corporate masters tell him later that the fourth amendment gets in the way of profit he will be in a hurry to backpedal.

Doctors Say Food Stamp Cuts Could Cause Higher Healthcare Costs

fascismforthepeople Re:second whine (1043 comments)

He believes in ron paul. You can tell that by reading his posts where he often provides "facts" by linking to youtube videos of that old retired fascist windbag giving speeches that no thinking person would want to listen to. roman_mir is just a modern day fascist, who hopes to make himself a prominent position in a resurrection of fascist ideals so that he can force his way near the top of the very narrow power pyramid.

Make no mistake about it, his goals include fascism for the people.

Doctors Say Food Stamp Cuts Could Cause Higher Healthcare Costs

fascismforthepeople Re:second whine (1043 comments)

Fascism is only a form of collectivism, a subset, same as socialism is a form of collectivism.

Not in the way you use the term "collectivism", fascism is not a form of it. Fascism is only the concentration of power into the hands of very few, with ultimate and unquestionable power exerted over the rest. The neo-capitalism that you endorse in your postings is truly only a modern incarnation of fascism, as you want to see an extreme concentration of power into the hands of very few with the rest left no recourse at all.

That is how your church of ron paul aims deliver fascism for the people.

How Chris Christie Could Use the NSA Playbook

fascismforthepeople Re:Christie missed a HUGE opportunity (266 comments)

Money. Millions of dollars. That's how you buy silence and it's a very cheap way to get ahead in elections that cost hundreds of millions.

because, of-course, politicians should not only not be prohibited from buying and selling influence, power, and votes they should actually be encouraged to do so. if they are not allowed to do this, then the little people can get in the way and prevent the powerful from pulling the levers and moving this country in the direction that your god wants it to go. this is just a part of your plan to bring more power for the powerful and fascism for the people.

I am actually against most of what government does and against most government taxes.

of-course you are. how dare the government impede on your interest in treating human beings like property that can be bought, sold, and discarded at will. how dare they prevent you from willfully poisoning the public. how dare they prevent you from attempting to bring your religion up to be the new order for the land with a completely unchecked leader-for-life. how dare they prevent you from bringing more power to the powerful and fascism for the people.

Rand Paul Hinting At 2016 Presidential Run

fascismforthepeople (2805977) writes "The son of frequent presidential candidate and slashdot sweetheart Ron Paul, Rand Paul has been suggesting it is more likely that he will run for the white house in 2016. Will the son be able to get more votes than the father? Will all of Ron Paul's supporters automatically latch on to Rand?"

Slashdot embraces more fascism

fascismforthepeople fascismforthepeople writes  |  about 6 months ago I noticed another front page story here heaping praise on the son of the infamous cult leader ron paul. I dared to point out what the son of the cult leader is pursuing and was promptly subjected to a slashdot fascist beat-down.

What a surprise. The fascists who call themselves libertarians just can't stand to have the platforms of their leaders questioned.

First, they advocate for stripping away the rights of the people to elect senators and governors. Then they push for a new tax code that is even more crippling to the lower 95% of the economy. They follow that with more bullshit about how removing regulations from business will be good for everyone - even those who find toxic waste in their backyards or lose their jobs for no reason and with no repercussions.

This is how they bring more power to the powerful, and fascism for the people.

Cult leader's son goes to the old party playbook

fascismforthepeople fascismforthepeople writes  |  about 7 months ago When you need to make friends - even if your aim is to bring your dad's cult to power - in the GOP there is one sure fire way to do it. Just play the Lewinski card. It doesn't even matter if you get the facts right or not, since they never really mattered before. Just remind everyone about the affair that initiated an impeachment trial, and make a big deal out of the whole damned thing.

Because after all, the facts don't matter when your final goal is to produce fascism for the people.

First Family of Fascism Tries to Sell to Howard University

fascismforthepeople fascismforthepeople writes  |  about a year ago The heir to the first family of fascism - who some expect will try to run for the white house in 2016 - traveled all the way from the Senate to Howard University to try to sell fascism to an historically black college. Apparently, the Howard University students weren't crazy about a stodgy white guy coming in to lecture them on their history. And of course when the same stodgy white guy wants to make education less accessible and wages less livable, he likely becomes even less popular.

The Grand Old Party of Fascism

fascismforthepeople fascismforthepeople writes  |  about a year and a half ago The heir-apparent to the first family of fascism was greeted warmly at the CPAC convention this year. Indeed, this is no surprise as conservatism and fascism are natural bedfellows. Nobody should be surprised that a party which utilized voter suppression to win elections would unite with a philosophy that views voters as idiots, workers as disposable resources without rights, and democracy itself as but an obstacle to their god-given right to rule with unlimited power for unlimited time.

Fascism, slashdot endorsed. Come get some!

fascismforthepeople fascismforthepeople writes  |  about a year and a half ago A rabid religious zealot / fascism fan here on slashdot recently gained the support of enough people to move his karma from shit to great. Now he can post as quickly as he can type, without needing his sock puppets. Welcome to the new slashdot; all fascism, all the time.

Here's a hint, folks. Fascism under the guise of libertarianism is still fascism.
