Hypocrisy[edit]

Wow - are you seriously complaining about hypocrisy? Acei9 00:31, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Yah, why? In dealing with leftists, you kinda get jaded and immune to it after awhile. You only speak up when it would seem hypocritical to remain silent. nobs piss in my ear 01:09, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Complaining about hypocrisy....on Conservapedia...that's next level cognitive dissonance. Acei9 01:19, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
"cognitive dissonance." Where'd you buy that word, Family Dollar? nobs piss in my ear 01:41, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
It's actually two words, Rob. Acei9 01:49, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Ok, so two 50 cent words would still sell for $2.50 plus tax at Family Dollar. Why do Americans feel they're getting screwed? Do we have to await the outcome of Trump-Xi trade talks to see if I buy two 50 cent words made in China at Family Dollar am I going to get value for my money? or are we all supposed to go on living like brain dead Democrats who don't know the value (or cost for that matter) of anything? nobs piss in my ear 02:22, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

Read it Nobs, you might learn something: cognitive dissonance. Bongolian (talk) 03:06, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

I spend my time either educating myself or contributing to the betterment of society. My participation here is an attempt at leading by example. nobs piss in my ear 03:20, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
What in the holy fuck are you even talking about Rob. BTW - you haven't learned shit and if your attempts at bettering society are evidenced by your CP contributions society would be better off if you stopped. But anyway - more to the point: there has never been a more vastly impressive edifice to hypocrisy than CP. Acei9 03:47, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
Funny you mention people feeling like they're being screwed, and why. Here's my particular why; Orange Boy is sabotaging the factory in which I work. We import raw materials from a lot of places, China included, run full fabrication in-house, then sell the finished product globally; one of our biggest customers is China. (FYI I design fluid control and monitoring systems, which are primarily used for industrial and municipal water supplies. 300,000 of my systems are in use around the world.) So at present, we are being punished by this administration through mindless 25% tariffs on many key parts. Then we're slammed on the other side when the completed systems are hit by reciprocal tariffs going out to China. We were on track to hit $50M in sales this year until this needless, pointless bullshit started. You can lead by example here by thinking to yourself, "What if Obama had done this?", realize you would have condemned him soundly for this kind of behavior, and acknowledge that Trump has no idea how macroeconomics or an economy operates - you would stay consistent in your beliefs. Instead you will come up with a convoluted explanation and hold to the idea that if Obama had done this, it would be 'picking winners and losers in the economy' but that when Trump does it, it's only his keen wonderful amazing flawless insight that the rest of us plebs are blind to, which then marks you for the moral contortionist we all know you to be. And then you do it again ten seconds later; it's fucking breathtaking to watch. Semipenultimate (talk) 20:41, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
Bullshit. You know damn well, since you're so macroeconomically sophisticated, the tariffs mean higher wages for you no matter what your volume of sales. Spare me all the whataboutism bullshit. And you can't even get that right. Obama has jackshit to do with China trade; that's Papa Bush, Clinton, and even Reagan's baby. nobs piss in my ear 06:03, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
Let's even take it a step farther, since you're so macroeconomically sophisticated: you know damn well once the Chinese obtain the technical skills you racked up $200,000 in student debt to obtain, the Chinese will hire somebody in the Chinese gulag for $1.95 an hour to do what you do and cut out $50 million in trade with your factory. Trump provides you with job security in a limited, and almost monopolistic market where you can rape fellow citizens for higher wages at will, rather than be at the mercy of Chinese competition. nobs piss in my ear
Presumptions about my educational costs aside, my question about Obama was a theoretical, go back and actually read it. Thank you for pointing out that business doesn't care about nationalism or any of that flowery bullshit; business is about money, and making as much of it as possible, without regard to human cost. That Chinese slave is putting money into the pockets of American businessmen but not American workers. This is why we have to compel businesses to pay a living wage, provide healthcare, and operate in legal and ethical ways, otherwise they'd commit all manner of financial crimes out in the open. There are more sophisticated ways to do this than announcing huge blanket one-size-fits-all tariffs. However, glad to see we're finally in agreement that capitalist greed must be constrained by government action! Semipenultimate (talk) 16:26, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
What? That makes no sense, free capitalism cannot function with such tariffs from Trump. Adam Smith himself would agree. Doublethink (talk) 07:26, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
What make no sense? Trade barriers will return the situation to like it was when U.S. automakers made $36 an hour and Japanese car manufacturers made $16, and Democrats fought tooth and nail to keep allowing U.S. workers to fuck their fellow citizens. Don't give me this Reaganesque bullshit now. nobs piss in my ear 07:36, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
Hahaha, no trade barriers will make producers leave see?. Tarrifs were outdated by Adam Smith's time, this has nothing to do with Regan. Do you not know who Smith is? Doublethink (talk) 17:50, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
Trade barriers cannot unmake the container ship revolution, the establishment of modernized manufacturing bases outside the US, nor the fact that we're no longer the only major power to not be utterly destroyed by a world war. The conditions of past success cannot be recreated. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 18:17, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
@Douhlethink: What kinda drugs are you on? Tariffs supported the entire US federal government from 1789 until passage of the income tax in 1916.
@Ikanread: That sounds like something Michelle Bachmann, the Ocasio-Cortez of her day, would say. Why, that great defender of women's rights, Sen. Al Franken, would never have been elected had Bachmann not referred to the Smoot-Hawley trade bill as 'Hoot Smalley' to justify the position of destroying American jobs with free trade. nobs piss in my ear 18:33, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes, they did and nobody liked them. Remember how well the embargo went for Jefferson? Doublethink (talk) 20:04, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
So what exactly is meant by free trade? China gets to export shit duty-free, destroying American jobs, while US exports are looted as soon as they're off-loaded from the ships? You've seen the results of such a Reaganesque and Thatcheresque policy - destruction of whole communities and the election of Donald Trump to reverse it. nobs piss in my ear 20:29, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
20% right as usual Morty Doublethink (talk) 21:46, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

The Americans needed money, also it was not effective. Doublethink (talk) 22:06, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
So, Thatcher was right when she threw 400,000 coal miners out of work and opened the UK up to free trade. Interesting. nobs piss in my ear 10:06, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
That is a complete non sequitur, I never advocated violence against striking workers. I merely said that tariffs are bad. Also where did you get the 400,000 number and she did't throw them out, Thatcher just broke upthe strike. 20% right as usual Morty Doublethink (talk) 17:14, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────As in most macroeconomic discussions, some people can't see the forest from the trees. I'll try to summarize as briefly as possible.

It was something like 150,000 workers, representing families and communities of about 400,000 who lost their government-protected jobs. Coal miners received above global market wages, something like $25 an hour, and worked fulltime year round. This created a global surplus, driving the global price of coal, per ton, down. By contrast, free market West Virginia coal miners made $15 an hour and endured frequent layoffs and work stoppages due to global surpluses which drive prices down.

IOW, UK coal production was subsidized by the UK Treasury, meaning UK coal was sold at a loss. If a ton of UK coal cost the Treasury $50 to produce, it only sold for $30 on the open markets. These were the conditions that existed from about 1945 to 1986.

Now the anti-Thatcherites and Trump critics are arguing against government protection of workers, and for open, free global markets. Do you see the contradiction in their position? nobs piss in my ear 02:45, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

I'm not a democrat I'm a Libertarian, did you not get that with my repeated references to free markets and my hatred of taxes. Doublethink (talk) 04:59, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
No, I didn't. Not knowing anything about free markets, Adam Smith, or taxes made me doubt you being a Libertarian. Being an economic illiterate made me think you're Democrat.
And being triggered by Thatcherism to automatically think of worker violence instead of the underlying free market cause she advocated was a dead give away. Whatsmore, recently it was reported the UK converted over completely to nuclear power and stopped burning coal anywhere in the UK. So who really was the progressive visionary? and what happened to the anti-nuke environmentalists of the 1980s who wanted to continue burning coal? Oh, I know I know, they quietly are working off their nuclear powered electronic devices, advocating for China to continue building coal plants in Vietnam, Indonesia, and Africa while claiming China is the global leader in fighting carbon emissions. nobs piss in my ear 06:43, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
You are so off topic, when did we even start arguing about carbon emissions? How was I triggered by Thatcherism? Also, I'm economically illiterate? Coming from the person who doesn't understand macroeconomics or the damages of mercantilism? Doublethink (talk) 17:02, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
Me off topic? It's obvious you've never read Adam Smith. You read what some commie lib (of which there are many) claims Adam Smith said. Adam Smith laid down few hard and fast rules. Smith discusses pros and cons on many subjects, such as tariffs. But commie libs don't believe in tradeoffs, they look for ideological purity. So you think the negative aspects of tariffs that Adam Smith discussed is some hard and fast dictum cause your commie lib teachers ignored half of what Smith wrote. As to Thatcherism, go back^^^^. I was discussing the macroeconomics of free trade - the terms "Thatcher" and "coal" triggered a response of "worker violence" from you, which has nothing to do with the global macroeconomic price of a ton of coal in 1986. You sound like a brainless commie lib Democrat. nobs piss in my ear 17:54, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
And BTW, what are carbon emissions, if not a macroeconomic argument? If not, what is there to worry about? nobs piss in my ear 18:14, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
HA! Yes I am a commie lib that is arguing for lower taxes and less government control. Do you even know what Communism is? Or is it just Communism = Satan? Tabula Rasa (talk) 06:45, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
A communist who believes in private property, Intetesting. I 'spose you believe in worker rights, too, like giving them a cigarette before you shoot them in the gulag. nobs piss in my ear 08:39, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Non sequitur. I just pointed out that if you think that I'm a communist when I am for lowering taxes and not having the government control things you don't know what a communist is. Tabula Rasa (talk) 17:20, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Huh? Wake up and smell the coffee. It's going to be a European Spring, with the Right-wing joining the 99% percent against the 1% EU bureaucratic elitists, and the Social Justice Warrior's demonstrating against the carbon tax and for national soveignty. The rich can longer keep us down. Rise up! Rise up for social justice against the globalist human rights abusers! nobs piss in my ear 22:49, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
That is still a non sequitur. Tabula Rasa (talk) 23:30, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

The Wall[edit]

Hey Rob, why is there a fundraising page for the Border Wall? I thought Mexico was paying for it? Acei9 21:50, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

I dunno; a long-term real estate investor could probably explain it better, but I'll try.
It takes money to make money. The one-time infrastructure cost is relatively a fixed cost, but the perpetual maintainance cost is open-ended (both in material costs and personnel). It is built to generate revenue, either directly to collect custom duties, or indirectly to secure the operation of businesses inside the wall. So an offset of the perpetual maintainance cost, and gradual re-imbursement of the original building cost is needed. To get Mexico to "pay for the wall," I suspect could take several shapes : (1) a tax on money transfers from Mexicans working and residing in the US back home to Mexico. This would likely be the biggest source. (2) Import duties on certain items from Mexico not protected by the USMCA, of which there's not many. (3) Reduced payments to Mexico for the drug war transfered to wall maintainance. (4) Export duties on marijuana. In recent years. the situation has reversed. Because of drug legalization in the US, and improvements in potency, quantity and quality, Mexico has become a net importer of US grown marijuana.
I'm just shooting from the hip, but no one really expects a self-made billionaire to lay his plans on the table for a new revenue generating project. nobs piss in my ear 22:33, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
So why hasn't any of the above been enacted to pay for this wall instead of asking congress for the funding? Acei9 01:27, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
Well duh, i outlined reimbursement funding above. It requires an initial outlay by Congress. But it's contingent on (a) immigration reform to address workers who send money to Mexico, and (b) tax reform to address sending money to Mexico. As you well know, Congress is composed of thick-headed numbskull idiots of both parties. And there's opposition to all three, the wall, immigration reform, and laying taxes on money transfers from the United States. So it requires a national consensus (here's where the GOP. Trump, and Democrats differ: we'd never dream of ramming such an ambitious project down the throats of the country without a national consensus, unlike the worthless cocksucking human rights violating communist-killer totalitarian assholes who did that to us with Obamacare). nobs piss in my ear 02:24, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
Yet Trump hasn't even put any of the ideas you mention forward. In fact he hasn't put any ideas forward except "give me 5 billion" and that was never going to fly. Weird he hasn't put forward any proposal and keeps lying about how the wall has begun construction which even supporters like Ann Coulter has called out as bullshit.
worthless cocksucking human rights violating communist-killer totalitarian assholes who did that to us with Obamacare Wow...which human rights did you lose Rob? Acei9 03:12, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

Communism and assorted shit[edit]

My right to choice. If I want to die of a pre-existing condition, even in a state that allows assisted suicide, the communist whores wanna soak me for insurance premiums on the way out. It's like a goddam toll booth on the off ramp. nobs piss in my ear 03:48, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
Not sure that is a human right there, Rob. But let me ask you something Rob, you don't have to answer but what do you pay for your medical insurance? And do you think a properly functioning society should put people in the position where they face bankruptcy or death? Is that the choice you mean? Acei9 03:53, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
I'm a senior. I leech off the ignorant youth. And I don't think a properly functioning society should commit its children and grandchildren to a slave system, such as I've experienced in my life, where old people take advantage of ignorant youth who were born into a slave system and never had the chance to vote for it. nobs piss in my ear 06:10, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

What did Jesus mean when he said, "If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free." - Mk 7:11-12? Lemme translate: Because the gubmint says, "We'll take the money out of your paycheck and give to your parents, you are absolved of your responsibility. It is Corban, a gift." nobs piss in my ear 11:41, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

well firstly you contradicted yourself, secondly when you claim Obama or any of his policies were communist what I hear you saying is “I don’t know what words mean and finally - have you been drinking because your last comment was more confused than most. How about actually addressing what I asked you? You know I live in a country with state health care and many state programs funded through taxation yet have a business freedom index, and higher freedoms in general than the US. Amazing. Acei9

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Contradicted? What? Huh? Where? I get Medicare. I never voted for the goddam shit. I paid for the goddam shit my whole life, and I don't use it. If I didn't have to pay for old people's shit during my working career, I would have had money to buy my own health insurance and prepare for my own retirement. But my grandparents sold me into Marxist slavery in 1937 with the Social Security Act and in 1962 with the Medicare Act. I was never consulted. I was informed when I entered the workforce, "Tuff, kid, too bad. You're too young and stupid to understand. Shut up and get to work to support us, who voted for this Marxist slave system." Now 70 million Millennials bitch about a fucked world with 68 million babyboomers who control Congress, who they have to support for another 30 years while they can't afford to have children and buy houses. At the same time they want Welfare for All, with nobody working and everybody getting a check. I had to work 40 years to get my free bowl gruel, they want it while still living in their parents basement. And that's called fairness. On top of that, they want forced retirement cause they blame babyboomers for fucking up the world. Fine. I'll give up the fucked up world I inherited when you pry it from my cold dead fingers. nobs piss in my ear 09:35, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

We have plenty of asses on RW, I could conceivably be counted as one of them if this account of mine is anything to go by. I come from the rough-and-tumble shit hole that is Usenet, and it is still a shithole to this day, contrary to popular belief Usenet isn't dead at all, quite the opposite in fact, and the shit I experience there on a daily basis makes the fucks here at RW seem like angels compared to twats such as myself, Alan Kleinman, Peter Nyikos, JTEM, and a horde of other trolls. Besides, people like Rob provide us something to laugh at. I understand that other people may have different sensitivities, I suffer from PTSD, anxiety, autism and several other neurological illnesses, I know what it's like to be triggered, it ain't pleasant, but dealing with all the vermin in my life, being exposed to such weeds on a daily basis, both online and IRL, has provided me some thick skin, I've seen the worst humanity has to offer, and Rob just doesn't cut it. It's not worth getting angry over, you'll save yourself a lot of headaches along the way by going with the flow and not letting the trolls get to you.

                   Well lemme 'splain briefly. According to the Congressional Resesrch Servive, Congress doesn't declare war anymore basically for two reasons: (1) declaration of a nation emergency like that automatically gives a bunch of federal agencies automatic, unlimited spending authority now that survival is at stake and their backs are against the wall. Congress looses power over the budget which goes completely out of control. (2) Insurance policies go null and void cause they all have "act of war" exclusions, and people get wiped out. nobs piss in my ear 21:40, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

Yes, yes it absolves you of guilt. In the law it's called an action "under duress" . In law you aren't guilty and in my book you don't have any guilt. Tabula Rasa (talk) 07:34, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Hmmm, you think so? If I get rear-ended at a stop light, and it causes me to rear-end the car in front of me, am I absolved of liability? Hell, it was an accident, I didn't even have a choice in the matter.nobs piss in my ear 03:28, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Again, yes "under duress" remember? Tabula Rasa (talk) 04:12, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Wow. Thanks. "a person who agrees to a contract under physical duress may avoid the contract, even if the duress was not the main reason for agreeing to the bargain." Couldn't come up with a better point to prove the illegality of Obamacare and the individual mandate (a $600 fine for not purchasing a health insurance contract is "physical duress" if a laborers source of income is labor). I'll ignore the fact that both premises (the gun and the auto) had nothing to do with contract law. nobs piss in my ear 07:03, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Duress under contract law is not the same as duress in a criminal case. Patty Hearst argued duress, and still got 35 years for bankrobbery. nobs piss in my ear 07:15, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Did you even see the other few links. Just because a few cases were lost doesn't mean the defense is inaccurate. Do you even understand what a legal defense is? It's a defense that is common in legal courts not one that works 100% or even a majority of the time. (Seeing as most cases end in conviction). Also why did you bring Obama into this. Non Sequitur Tabula Rasa (talk) 08:42, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
If I put a gun to your head, that is not a contract. If you get rear-ended, that is not a contract. Duress is as an action to set aside a contract, like lack of consideration, lack of capacity, "unclear hands", ultra vires, etc., and is not a criminal defense.
In the case of Patty Hearst, the facts were similiar to what I premised. She wss raped. She was threatened with death. She was locked in a closet and starved. She argued that she was brainwashed and acted under duress. The court sentenced her to 35 years for a voluntary action. What's George Soros' excuse? That he willingly entered into a contract with the Nazi's?nobs piss in my ear 09:23, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
One problem with that, there was a doubt that she was raped, tortured, ect. With Soros, he is jewish they were NAZIS. Commie Lib (talk) 09:28, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
In the Hearst case, the court found she willingly cooperated. In the Soros instance, he confessed on 60 minutes that he willingly cooperated. Unlike Hearst, Soros never claimed he personally was threatened with death. nobs piss in my ear 10:28, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
if you areb jew in nazi germany you are by default threatened with death. not 'personally' threatened, as no one said directly gto his that were going to kill specifically. no he was hiding in plan sight. discovery meant death. and he was 14 when the war ended. whatever point your trying to make here, this is fucking idiotic. AMassiveGay (talk) 10:47, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Let's stop here and look closer: according to WP,

At the time of her arrest, Patty Hearst weighed only 87 pounds (40 kg) and was described by Dr. Margaret Singer in October 1975 as "a low-IQ, low-affect zombie".[41] Shortly after her arrest, there were some clear signs of trauma: her IQ was measured as 112, whereas it had previously been 130; there were huge gaps in her memory regarding her pre-Tania life; she was smoking heavily and had nightmares.[42] Without a mental illness or defect, a person was held fully responsible for any criminal action not done under duress, defined as a clear and present threat of death or serious injury.[43][44] Securing an acquittal on the basis of brainwashing would be completely unprecedented.[45][46]

(This defense wouldn't have done "Songbird" McCain any good, either). The court found Hearst willingly entered into an agreement with her captors.

In Soros case, he likewise entered into an agreement (or contract) with the Nazi's. 10,000 people were murdered daily for a period of four months, for which he was rewarded, or paid, by his own admission. Accepting payment in a contract is not evidence of duress.

His only defense, under American law, would be lack of capacity (age) to enter into a contract. That still does not mean he did not do what he did. nobs piss in my ear 11:01, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

i cant be arsed with this utter bullshit.

his defense is that he didnt do any it. your reading of law fails even before your twisting of it when its all based on lies in the first place. its complete bullshit. you know it is. patty hearst is irrelevant to soros. mccain is irrelevent. this is just despicable. you cannot hang the murders of thousands and thousands of jews on a 14 year old jewish boy who played no part in it. nor did he play any part in confiscation of jewish property. nor did he collaborate in any way. im sure theres plenty of stuff you can pin on soros. stuff hes actually done. it just wont involve nazis. instead you insist on regurgitating lies. you are liar. have some fucking integrity.

there must people on the right, conservatives of various stripes who have something valid to say. i dont know what that would be because the only right wing folk who make here all unvarnished fucknuts, incapable of even the most basic decency. there is no win here. it fucks us all over. get a fucking grip man.

Watch the 60 Minutes interview. Anyone who has read even just a modicum of Holocaust literature - the accounts of eyewitnesses - knows exactly what's going on. And I've spent years reading most of it. Soros is the only survivor in his situation, and he admits to being paid. What? You think Nazi's, after they deported Jews, let anyone ransack houses? You're in denial. Soros fingered Jews for the Nazis. Unlike Paris or Warsaw, Budapest was never under occupation. Jews in Budapest were never required to wear the Yellow star, so the Nazis needed the collaboration of locals to identify who the Jews were. Soros was ideal, cause he was a member of the community. He was rewarded for his efforts. He puts the best spin on it in the 60 Minutes interview. These are the fundamental facts you have to work with. nobs piss in my ear 18:42, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────1) Soros was a minor at the time 2) Soros was under imminent threat of death. According to Snopes:[3]

Yet the simple truth is that George Soros neither said nor did anything resembling what he has been accused of. In no sense was Soros, who turned 14 years old not long after the Germans occupied Hungary in 1944, a “Nazi collaborator.” At no time did he confiscate (or help confiscate) the property of Jews, “identify Jews to the Nazis,” or help “round up” people targeted for deportation or extermination by the Germans (to answer just a few of the accusations leveled against him). And although Soros did attest during the infamous 60 Minutes interview that he regrets nothing about the time of German occupation, he also said it is precisely because he didn’t do any of the things attributed to him that his conscience is clear.

Fuck you, you racist PoS. Bongolian (talk) 05:55, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Hmm, looks like Snopes is wrong here. In the interview, Soros says he felt no guilt because the property was being taking away either way regardless of his actions and compared it to his actions in the speculative market. 141.134.75.236 (talk) 06:12, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

if only you could have managed just a few seconds later where he states he was merely a spectator. its as if one ambiguous statement taken free from context is proof of fuck all. he says a few times how he had no role in confiscating property. its pretty fucking clear. are you people fucking stupid? did you think we would not look any further? it all hinges on that one statement, only ambiguous out of context, its complete arse water of the worse kind.

The Hungarian government did not know who the Jews were. The Nazis did not know who the Jews were. Soros guardian did not know who the Jews were. Soros knew who members of the Jewish community were. Hungarian Jews were not segregated into ghettos as they were in Warsaw, Paris, Rotterdam and eleswhere. Hungarian Jews were not mandated to wear the Star of David by the Hungarian government. Now, explain the rapid deportation of 430,000 Hungarian Jews in four months and why Soros was allowed to be a "spectator" of Nazi crimes? And why Soros was compensated with food and belongings from the victims homes? nobs piss in my ear 22:58, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
At the risk of repeating myself: shut the fuck up, you lying sack of shit. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 23:17, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
Interesting article; now answer the specific question: How were the Nazis able to segregate 430,000 Hungarian Jews between June and October 1944? In the case of Poland, there was nearly two years preparation time between September 1939 and July 1941 when Auschwitz extermination operations began. Paris was over a year from June 1940 to July 1941. As the 1962 Eichmann trial reveals, in the case of Budapest it was only because of cooperation with local Jews. Soros made the mistake between 1945 and 1962 of going on record and saying too much how he survived Eichmann's deportations, which he tries to explain away in the 60 Minutes interview of the 1990s. nobs piss in my ear 23:46, 8 January 2019 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── You're a turd in the gene pool, Smith, and lazy to boot:

Long before that fateful spring of 1944, Hungarian leader Miklós Horthy​ had fostered anti-Semitic fervor in his country. When he first took power in 1920, the country’s Numerus Clausus law, which put a quota on the number of Jewish students allowed to attend universities, went into effect, along with the White Terror, a military crackdown targeting at Jews and other counterrevolutionaries. In the build-up to World War II, a series of anti-Jewish laws starting in 1938 were also responsible for othering Hungarian Jews.

But the alliance Hungary struck with the Axis Powers in 1940 at first kept the majority of Hungary’s Jews safe from Nazi Germany. More than 20,000 Jews that Hungarian authorities designated as “foreign nationals” were sent in 1941 to German-occupied Ukraine, with full knowledge of the fate that would await them upon their arrival. The next year, the Hungarian military and citizen forces took part in the Novi Sad massacre in northern Serbia where more than 1,000 people, mostly Jews, were killed. And approximately 40,000 Jewish men conscripted into forced labor battalions died of exposure, enemy fire or mass executions during Hungary’s retreat from Stalingrad in early 1943.

Still, unlike much of Europe, most of Hungary’s Jews remained alive in the spring of 1944. As an official ally of the Axis powers, Hitler had left Hungary to find its own solution to the “Jewish Question” up until this point.

Now, the Fuhrer demanded its Jews. That spring, with the Soviet army advancing on Hungary's border, and Hungary’s own army largely destroyed at Stalingrad, Nazi troops first entered Hungary’s borders. They came without resistance. Horthy invited the Fuhrer’s troops into the country, and then verbally agreed to send what was initially 100,000 Jews to Germans for “work” in a bid to remain in power. Compounding that number, Horthy decided instead to send the workers’ families as well, ultimately sealing the fates of some 437,000 Jews.

... with only some 150 Nazi Germans in charge of the deportations, it was left to officials of the Hungarian Interior Ministry, the Gendarmes and local authorities to carry out their orders. Rather than refuse to be complicit, Hungarians chose to cooperate. “The Germans pushed for concerted action against Hungarian Jewry, and Horthy not only did not resist—he put the government apparatus at their disposal. The well-oiled process of destruction of the Jews followed quickly: restrictions, wearing the Jewish badge, confiscations, the establishment of ghettos and systematic deportations,” Rozett writes.

Point? This statement however true doesn't invalidate the fact that he must have been scared of Nazi persecution. Commie Lib (talk) 00:56, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
It's ridiculous to say he subscribed to Nazi ideology (other than the atheist and survival of the fittest aspect); it's not ridiculous to say he collaborated. The 85 year old lying sack of shit is saddled today with the guilty conscience of a 14 year old punk. As I said above, I have great compassion for him, or at least much more than I do Adolph Eichmann, who was an adult and only following orders. nobs piss in my ear 01:13, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I've been watching the hundreds of hours of Eichmann Trial videos for quite sometime now. Here is an excerpt dealing with property seizures from about 28:00 to 36:00). It deals with an order he signed to seize property, which then became Reich property, and to prevent it from being taken by unauthorized persons. This order dates from the occupation of Austria which pre-dates the physical extermination program. In the hundreds of hours, it's the only portion I can recall that deals with property seizures. Also, if you wanna back up to about 19:00, there are a few references to the cooperation he recieved from other Jews relating to deportations, and also the expense involved. His plan was to have rich Jews pay the expense of deporting poor Jews, with the state treasury being the beneficiary of the remaining assets (he denies taking any money or property for himself).

Eichman's whole defense is based on claiming all he did was arrange transportation for deportations, which cost money from seized property, and had no hand or decision in what happened once people disembarked. nobs piss in my ear 09:10, 13 January 2019 (UTC)

"offense". I'm not personally offended, I genuinely just find your non-existence(be it some miracle you all stop believing this shit, dying off naturally and not indoctrinating more people, or just vanishing into thin air) an increasingly obvious precondition for a world that keeps living. As to "In particular", I'm out here with my lamp in the daytime looking so hard for the smallest, tiniest honest conservative movement, because there's none. None at all. It doesn't exist. You've got spite, you've got pseudo-economic theories, you've got fundamentalism, you've got huge racist hate-boners, but there's no coherent ideology behind anything labeled conservative. None of it. Even the libertarians who try constructing a world view on "government bad" magically invent "except when protecting private property or fighting wars" as an insane and baseless exception. And the coalition created is death-marching humanity for ecological catastrophe and cyberpunk dystopia and possibly nuclear war, but that last one's subjective. I cannot fathom a decent human being involved with any of it. I can see literal murderers with a better moral system, and more deserving of basic respect as human beings than you guys.
It's easy to call that "blinkered" or "partisan" or "tribal" or any other of very reasonable interpretations of that perspective from the outside, but it really comes down to what completely amoral, monstrous human beings you have to be to even consider saying "well hillary clinton sucks so I'll vote for the obvious fascist who made his intentions of ethnic cleansing clear".

nah they're psychos who reprinted the charge that Sarah Jeong was racist to white people because she parodied a white racist's post, a charge that was made up by literal goddamn nazis.

I know that you acknowledging that you're completely and totally wrong about this single point will never happen. Which is why "none of you existing anymore" seems like the most plausible solution to your collective bullshit. And if you can't hear the dog whistles screaming in here, just fuck off. The "credible" versions of your ideology are the exact same garbage pail of obviously rationalizing bullshit as the "dumb" versions run through a thesaurus.
But because archive diving to things we both know were completely wrong, Here we have them positively screaming for the annhilation of the million Iraqis we can lay at the feet of Bush, with the charge that not enough pointless bombing of the middle east led to 9/11 because we were "weak", and a contemporaneous All muslims are evil article from 2002-2003.

Why did you scroll up my comment "This assessment probably did more damage to science than good, being that there's a 50% chance it was fake" when you made the same point here. I offered an explanation, you offered an excuse for flawed science - which is basically the same thing.
And Hitler's heirs didn't turn out fine. His three nephews and only surviving bloodline have made a verbal pact not to reproduce cause they are convinced something's wrong with the bloodline and want it to die out (WP cites it here).

Comment on discussion on LGM Talk[edit]

I know intellectual reasoning isn't Bungolians strong suit, but here goes:

  • (1) my "inbred" comment in the heat of an election was a metaphor for sockpuppetry, not an attack on a users family.
  • (2) if you wanna consider terms like "racist" or "bigot" personal attacks, nobody's been victimized more than me. Any fair jury would make that determination. nobs piss in my ear 22:13, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Furthermore, Wikipedia cites a scholarly source for which I was censored for using the same language and called an anti-Semite:

Kershaw contends that stories circulated by Strasser as to alleged "sexual deviant practices ought to be viewed as ... anti-Hitler propaganda" (see above link). nobs piss in my ear 22:33, 18 January 2019 (UTC)
Come on Rob your not even trying "The 1995 book The Pink Swastika, by Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams, asserts that most of the top Nazis were homosexual and that there is evidence that homosexuals are violent and dangerous. Mainstream historians have criticized the book for its inaccuracies and manipulation of facts.[40][41] Bob Moser, writing for the Southern Poverty Law Center, says the book was promoted by anti-gay groups and that historians agree its premise is "utterly false".[42]"

"Historian Lothar Machtan argues in The Hidden Hitler (2001) that Hitler was homosexual. The book speculates about Hitler's experiences in Vienna with young friends, his adult relationships with (among others) Röhm, Hanfstaengl, and Emil Maurice, and includes a study of the Mend Protocol, a series of allegations made to the Munich Police in the early 1920s by Hans Mend, who served with Hitler during World War I. The American journalist Ron Rosenbaum is highly critical of Machtan's work, saying his "evidence falls short of being conclusive and often falls far short of being evidence at all".[44] Most scholars dismiss Machtan's claims, and believe Hitler was heterosexual.[4][5][6] In 2004, HBO produced a documentary film based on Machtan's theory, titled Hidden Führer: Debating the Enigma of Hitler's Sexuality." Commie Lib (talk) 04:05, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

That's a bit off-topic cause we're not discussing whether or not Hitler was gay. I don't know much of Lively, but here's what I know of Langer.
Langer's 1973 book was a reprint of his now declassified report from 30 years earlier (which he was allowed to commercially benefit from), five years before the Freedom of Information Act. I was a first year history student, and this was "new information." Only it wasn't new, the 16 million homophobes of the "Greatest Generation" signed up to fight Hitler based on lies in a government report causing them to doubt some of the anti-gay propaganda they were spoon fed in wartime. Mind you, Langer's report appeared following on the heels of the Pentagon Papers, Warren Commission and at the peak of Watergate, when people started questioning if the government was in the habit of lying to them.
Lively's book says nothing new; it recreates the atmosphere of anti-Nazi propaganda from the 1920s, 30s, and 40s using German, British, French, American, and Socialist party sources. `nobs piss in my ear 08:06, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
As a final point, I don't need to read Langer or Lively; I read the Strasser brothers, Rauschnigg, Konrad Heiden, Freidlind Wagner, Kershaw, Trevor-Roper, Joachim Fest, Allen Bullock, Liddell Hart, the Nuremberg Indictment, Lucy Davidowitz, Simon Weisenthal, Ellie Wiesel, the Klarsfelds, Roi Medvedev, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Gordon A. Craig and a shitload of other primary and secondary sources. I was a student of Prof. Bill Renzi, who was a student of Gordon PrangeWikipedia, a consultant on Tora! Tora! Tora!Wikipedia. I know a bit about qualifying sources and determining historical authenticity. nobs piss in my ear 09:27, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
Oh, and one Final Final point: the WP on Hitier's sexuality says somebody tried to hook up Hitler with Martha DoddWikipedia; I find that interesting cause I created the WP on Martha Dodd and don't recall putting that in there. It leaves me with impression WP tends to exaggerate and make something out of nothing. nobs piss in my ear 09:47, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

A final point on the teaching of History[edit]

Historians have debated for ages whether History is a science or art. Some call it a sixth sense. In teaching History, the object is to bring it alive. The original Dr. Faustus is said to have made HectorWikipedia appear in the classroom. The serious student looks at not just historical facts, but how those facts are taught in different eras.

Which brings us to Scott Lively. Or rather, Scott Lively's sources. Lively didn't make up shit out of his asshole. Scott Lively quoted what Leftists and Hitler's enemies said about the Nazis. And Lively's sources have been, and still are used in a multitude of other books, only not as extensive as Lively used them. Homophobic attacks and sexual innuendo is as old as Marxism itself. The Left used a homophobic attack on Lindsey Graham only yesterday, and tried to destroy Judge Kavanaugh with accusations of sex crimes a few months ago.

Lucy DawidowiczWikipedia rejects much of the claims of modern advocates of identity politics. Here's the dilemma of teaching modern history: the Greatest Generation that saved the planet from fascism were motivated by homophobia, because they literally believed all the sources that Langer and Lively used. And a generation or nation that falsifies the teaching of History will, as Germany has done, live with the consequences. nobs piss in my ear 23:31, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Langer and government records[edit]

Langer wrote a secret government report saying Hitler liked women to shit on his face (sound familiar? only the Steele dossier was outsourced to foreign contractors). Langer was able to get the original de-classified after 30 years, copyrighted it, and sold it through mainstream publishers. Coincidentally at the same time Nixon was defying Congressional subpeaona's and arguing in the Supreme Court that tape recordings of Oval Office conversations were his personal property and he didn't have to give up his 5th Amendment rights to not give evidence against himself. The court ruled the tapes were government property, shortly after Langer cashed in on a bunch of homophobic smears he wrote about Hitler.

The ruling on government records raised the question why Langer should get exclusive rights to a million dollar book deal, while the citizens who owned the property were denied access [why should taxpayers have to pay a private publisher for information they already own?]. The court decision was codified in the Freedom of Information Act. Hillary Clinton, who's job on the Watergate investigating committee was to review thousands of hours of tapes, knew full well that if the President or Secretary of State farted, it was automatically classified information. And any written document was the people's property, not her own. She created the private server with intent to circumvent the law. She can't plead ignorance or stupidity. nobs piss in my ear 00:39, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Some people think the Democratic Party is splitting into factions, some more progressive than others.

It will be interesting to see what policies stick and which ones will be abandoned as things go forward. — Dysk (contribs) 16:24, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
Rob? What is your problem with assisted suicide? Commie Lib (talk) 17:01, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
The split is more of a genrational thing. As older establishment Dems try to moderate and distance themselves from socialism, it only emphasize the split. It's impossible for Kamala Harris or Amy Klobuchar (probably the two best qualified) to distance themselves. Amy probably has a better chance at trying, based on her white privilege. But both come from two of the most thoroughly communist infiltrated local Democratic parties in the US.
As to assisted suicide, that section needs to be developed more. I'm just going with the general theme of "culture of death" right now. Some people have strong religious objections to it. And the supposed "medical science" arguments are discredited. The opioid epidemic is assisted suicide with a prescription. nobs piss in my ear 17:09, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

The general issue needs to be developed, particularly as more legislation is introduced. There are people who have strong feelings on the subject, and view it as a disregard of human life. I'm not saying I'm for or against it, although (1) there appears to be loopholes in the law now where it's happening on a large scale with people not suffering from terminal illness and not choosig to do so voluntarily, yet recieving medical assistance to do it; and (2) the fact a major political party wants to make assisted suicide part of its platform is itself an issue.
And the real focus should be on the current state of the practice of medicine, the current state of medical school education, and govenrment regulation of pharmacueticals. nobs piss in my ear 23:09, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

Ok, so this is the first time since Khruschev that a negotiation has been carried on with a crazed killer with nuclear weapons. Khruschev had a change of heart and was deposed internally. As to non-nuclear armed crazed dictators, the list is quite extensive of those who were offered a chance to go into exile and keep their their looted fortunes - the Shaw, Marcos, Batista, Pinochet, Samoza, etc etc etc. Others refused and became deadenders - Caucescu, Saddam, Hitler etc etc. Still others repented and paid reparations for their crimes - Gadaffi.
Now, to paraphrase a great modern leader and visionary - Ocasio-Cortez - "Because no one else has even tried. Because no one else has even tried.

Question[edit]

Are you a Birther? RoninMacbeth (talk) 20:50, 6 March 2019 (UTC)

To be a bit clearer, if you are not a Birther, then it would be possible to amend the article at a later date to include something along the lines of "RobSmith has since rejected this viewpoint," or something like that. If your objection is that you never believed in it in the first place, well, can you provide links from your earlier CP or RW days where you explicitly rejected it? RoninMacbeth (talk) 20:56, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
I never debated the subject with anyone anywhere (as far as I recall). I did some edits in 2011 to CP mainspace to bring balance to a page slanted toward birtherism. After I was reinstated in 2015 at CP, I removed several point blank statements that Obama was born in Kenya from pages that I created and did 99% of the work on. If someone can find a Talk page I ever participated in anywhere, good luck. nobsI'm all yea'res 04:45, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
I would not object to modification of the text if you provide evidence about your views that justify such modifications. Saying that you cleaned up birtherism from Conservapedia anytime on or after September 16, 2016, when Trump renounced birtherism because it was no longer mattered politically is not however evidence of being opposed to birtherism, it's evidence of whitewashing Conservapedia. Bongolian (talk) 21:26, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
@RoninMacbeth No, I am not now, nor have ever been a birther. I disagree with the characterization of all birthers as "racist." There were legitimate question's raised early based on the fly leaf of Obama's 1992 book, and in 2004 at the time of Obama's DNC keynote speech, some mainstream journalists reported that Obama was Kenyan by birth. Whatever the cause of birtherism taking root, Obama himself bares some responsibility for letting questions fester as long as he did.
While there are some birthers who took birtherism to extreme, calling him "defacto president," or illegitimate, etc., some of those people were motivated by racism. And yes, Trump used that base to promote himself. But just as strenuously as I objected to all opponents of Obamacare being labeled racist, not all people with legitimate questions were racists. And mainstream journalists who peddled Obama as Kenyan in 2004 shamefully remained silent, or joined in the chorus of calling people racist after Obama was elected, for believing the crap they reported just 5 years earlier.
It's hard to think of a more complicated moot point people still argue over. For my part, I did my best at the earliest possible moment I could to protect CP's mission. nobsI'm all yea'res 00:05, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
@Bongolian And who knows? It may have been my failure to jump on the Birtherism bandwagon, and efforts to present a balanced narrative of the issues, that played some part, albeit not the main reason, why I was banned from CP for three years. nobsI'm all yea'res 00:40, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Mistake Correction on Conservapedia's Talk[edit]

Hi nobs, I would like to suggest a correction to an error on CP's talk page. Vargas made it, not you, but since you're actually capable of editing CP, I was hoping you could correct them. The statement 'What better way to discredit California leaders than to set them up to fail by secretly setting fires to the forests, so he can oust the Democrats, elect Republicans and then seize all the lumber he wants?' makes the same substantial mistake about the causes of California's wildfires that alleged conservatives have been making for years. The problem is not huge stands of easily-processed trees that you can turn into two-by-fours that we are neglectfully allowing to burn. The actual cause is fast-growing shrubs such as the 20-odd species of chaparral that are endemic here, as well as other species like chamise that develop intensely oily wood. So the real problem is that it will cost several billion dollars, every year, to send people in to clear out something that is basically useless for sale as anything other than bark chips. And it doesn't help that conservatives are thinking it's like a ten-million acre cedar plantation that Groovy Gravy is just too stoned to tend, man. It's oversimplistic, does not remotely reflect reality, and is beneath even CP's low bar. Semipenultimate (talk) 21:09, 13 March 2019 (UTC)

Right wingers aren't for "revolutionary change" or violent "direct action" under any circumstances - those two things specifically are not "right wing" in any context.

(b) The eternal torment people suffer is eternal separation from God's love. Period. No pitchforks up the butt, etc.
(c) People separated from God's love, while alive in the flesh, are experiencing Hell right now. The difference being the knowledge of mortality gives them hope for relief (this explains suicide and a host of other sins, etc). The ultimate torment of this Satanic deception occurs with knowledge of eternal disembodied consciousness, coupled with a loss of hope of ever experiencing relief. Simply put, Hell is eternal separation from God's love, and the knowledge that there is no reconciliation. You rejected him, therefore he rejected you. It's like a messy divorce for all eternity. nobsI'm all yea'res 16:06, 19 March 2019 (UTC)

What do you know about Islamic teaching? It's all about judgement, and explicitly rejects salvation. What I personally think or believe determines nothing - other than my own personal salvation.

According to Consevapedia a conservative typically adheres to principles of personal responsibility, your views on this issue proves that is total rubbish. Consevapedia's rhetoric is always against Muslims, atheists, liberals and even decent conservatives who do not adhere to Andy's extreme radicalism but when something happens to these groups, they, you and people or organisations who have far more clout disown the perpetrators or blame those who you display hatred to for their actions. If someone commits a hate crime against a gay person they blame that person for "coming onto" the criminal. When a right wing nutcase kills dozens of young adults in Norway they "had it coming" or when children are killed at a pop concert in Manchester they are "Pro sodomite sluts and whores". The views of you and your ilk are utterly disgusting. If heaven is populated with people like you, Ken and Andy I am glad I am going to Hell.--Mercian (talk) 14:30, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
Never said I knew anything about Islam; I've only asked two questions about your personal beliefs with respect to another religion outside of your particular subsect of christianity. Speaking to you is a necessarily slow process, since you must be nailed down on every single detail. Shall I interpret your response as a 'no, I, nobs, do not believe there is a path to salvation through any form of Islamic practice'? You need to be more clear-spoken in your responses, otherwise we'll never get past the first question. Semipenultimate (talk) 15:06, 20 March 2019 (UTC)
I've had this discussion with Muslims. They look forward to judgement. I praise God because I've been saved from judgement. In the Islamic religion, you get brownie points for killing Allah's enemies in the day of judgement. In may faith, I've been spared from judgement, and all those facing judgement will not stand. nobsI'm all yea'res 19:47, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
I'm going to accept that as confirmation that you do not believe there is a path to salvation through any version of the faith known as Islam. The second question now follows; do you believe that there is any path to salvation through any version of the faith known as Hinduism? Semipenultimate (talk) 20:27, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
As to Islam, it's not what I believe, it's what Islam teaches. There is no salvation. As to Hinduism, I don't know enough about it to speak with any conviction. As I understand it, they are numerous different teachings, and most have to do with karma or luck. nobsI'm all yea'res 17:16, 28 March 2019 (UTC)
So, as you understand it, do karma or luck have anything to do with avoiding the eternal torment of hell? Or are they like good deeds, and have no impact with respect to salvation in and of themselves? Semipenultimate (talk) 15:48, 29 March 2019 (UTC)
Jesus taught karma in everyday life, what goes around comes around, do unto others, etc.; as to eternal destiny, the idea people come back as snails or Napoleon or whatever seems a bit far fetched. Again, we return to the question of judgement, which is a gospel of grace vs. a gospel of works. Only Christianity teaches a gospel of grace or salvation (see 1 Corinthians 1:23-2:16). Those who do not accept salvation in this life are fated to judgement. Gospel of works = judgement. nobsI'm all yea'res 16:58, 29 March 2019 (UTC)
I'm going to take this as confirmation that you don't believe there's a way to salvation through any form of Hindu practice. The third question now follows; do you believe that there is any path to salvation through any version of the faith known as Judaism? Semipenultimate (talk) 19:37, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
Yes, I do. Most of the the New Testament, particularly the writings of Paul, are a commentary on the OT. Hebrews 4:2 for example says, For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them [Israel in the wilderness, per chapter 3], meaning the "gospel," a Greek word that does not appear in the OT, was preached to Israel in the wilderness, i.e., before Jesus was born. Exodus 33 (and surrounding chapters) also preaches a doctrine of grace (Wherefore, if I have found grace in thy site...). It also says "Moses spoke unto the Lord face to face," seemingly contradicting John chapter one which says, "No man hath seen God at anytime." This can only be reconciled or expounded by the sections I quoted above from 1 Cor. 1 & 2. This is the basis for my understanding. More examples are available that add more corroboration and understanding. nobsI'm all yea'res 01:38, 7 April 2019 (UTC)
This is somewhat surprising, given that Judaism explicitly rejects Jesus' divinity. However I will grant that you believe that people who follow the teachings of Judaism are given special dispensation because they were your god's chosen people before god changed it's holy writ. Grandfathered in, so to speak. Does this reflect what you believe? Semipenultimate (talk) 15:52, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
It's a personal question that adherents to Judaism have to answer that is just as valid today as when Jesus spoke it, What think ye Christ, Whose son is he? David, or God's? (Matt 42:22). While the teachings of Judaism do provide a path to salvation (and there are many examples of born again, blood washed Christians long before Jesus was born - Abel, Abraham, Moses, Job, Zachariah and Elizabeth, the old widowed woman and another guy mentioned Luke, etc.) - it's how the individual responds to God's invitation that matters. If an individual rejects Christ, they are under law and turn Orthodoxy into a gospel of works.
As to God's chosen pertaining to a racial bloodline, no. And yet there still is much I admit that I do not understand about God's dealings with Israel or the Jews that is ongoing. nobsI'm all yea'res 18:07, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
IOWs, this question is the subject beginning at Romans 4:1, What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found?, and much of the book of Galatians. To thumbnail it, Abraham believed in the resurrection, and God reckoned it unto righteousness. That, evidently is all that is needed.
First, God promised Abraham an heir; then God told him to kill the heir. Abraham didn't know how God would fulfil his promise to multiply his seed as the stars of sky, yet it was every thought and intent of Abraham's heart to kill his only son. Somehow God resurrected Isaac from the dead. And by believing God, Abraham was saved. nobsI'm all yea'res 18:24, 9 April 2019 (UTC)
Ok, there's a lot there. So the key for you is not that there is faith (with respect to our theoretical Jewish person) that the messiah has already visited, but faith that there will be a visit, and that visit will be -the- show - is this the 'believing in the resurrection' you mention?

God, through Christ, is retaking the Earth from evil after Satan was cast down and made the Earth his abode (this explains Global warming, murder, rape, political corruption, etc). As to Trump, coincidentally I was reading some (see page 223) oppo on Trump last night. They claim, "Donald Trump Said He Had Never Asked God For Forgiveness And Spoke Casually About Holy Communion."

The point here, nobs, is to highlight the vast differences in your standards of evidence. All it takes for you to totally deny that Obama is a christian is one single piece of 'evidence' - like, say, a single blurry photo of his wedding ring. This is in spite of actual evidence that he goes to church, has knowledge of the contents of the bible, can cite actual scripture when spoken to about it, etc. Meanwhile, I believe there is literally nothing that will convince you that Donald Trump does not live by christian principles in any real way. Again, in spite of evidence in the form of his own words and deeds. Everything said by those you believe are your allies about everything is accepted uncritically; everything said by the opposition are the literal words of the devil.

And of course you'd be outraged at the un-Christian vermin fascist Barack "Make Sure To Emphasize His Middle Name is Hussein" Obama if his Justice Department was making this bullshit argument in court.

Wow. Interesting debate. According to Wikipedia, Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt held citizens in concentration camps without trial. [10] Lesser known is the fact that FDR traded 81 German Jews from South America to Hitler for American citizens; the Jews likely perished in concentration camps. [11]
And those were all huge mistakes, yes, and people died as a result of it. We can both acknowledge this - there's no debate. I'm not blind to mistakes made by people with a D next to their name.

I bring this up after watching The View during D-Day Commemorations, and what the dead bodies of American servicemen in France were fighting for.

Not sure what it is you're saying here. Are you trying to ironically comment on the people of other races who also died during D-Day, since the Army, while segregated, still had black-only units, since that's what segregation means? Or do you feel like you are being wronged because you think it's madness that the price to be paid by straight white men so people that have been marginalized, scorned, murdered, hounded, fired, disowned, and imprisoned can live like free human beings in America is being mocked by strangers on television?

How many Blacks are buried in Normandy? How many Blacks stormed the beaches? We can presume among some of the white males buried there, there likely is a few closet homosexuals. But they would have been booted out if discovered, as the hetero sexual white males who defeated Hitler and fascism deemed gays unfit to participate. nobsI'm all yea'res 19:30, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
It seems there were about 2,000 black soldiers at Normandy, at least amongst the segregated US Army; I have no idea of the numbers from Canada or the UK where such explicit segregation did not exist. Here is a story of just one of them, who isn't buried there, along with the several hundred of the men he saved on that beach. Instead he had to fight on back home for the recognition he and those other men deserved. So I can say that about 2,000 black soldiers in the US Army stormed the beaches at Normandy although that fact, per the article, is often written out of history. I cannot tell you how many were killed there. However given the casualty rate, it is safe to say that at least one of them is buried at Normandy, or at a minimum on the beach with the rest of the quiet dead. So, again, exactly what fucking point are you trying to make here? Semipenultimate (talk) 21:10, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
How many Blacks in combat roles? Blacks served primarily in support roles, transportation, supplies, kitchen, etc. Blacks did serve front line duty as occupation troops, after the straight white males killed the krauts (usually Ukrainians POWs in German uniform) and cleared towns. Blacks were specifically denied frontline combat duty - that's what segregation was. nobsI'm all yea'res 22:04, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
120,000 total in service, 708 KIA. You may or may not understand that war is an inherently fucked process, and soldiers working the rear echelon would be attacked just as readily by the enemy; supply line attacks are entry-level strategy and have been so since Napoleon. And the efforts of the 761st Tankers and Tuskeegee Airmen are well-documented. Yes, black Americans died for a country that scorned the fuck out of them upon return. Despite the best efforts of unreconstructed confederates, black Americans showed valor on all fronts of WWII. So, again, nobs, What. Is. Your. Point. Semipenultimate (talk) 23:41, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
How many Blacks are buried among the 25,000 at Normandy?

This is how much I love you, nobs: I watched part of an episode of the View for you. 13 minutes and 12 seconds of my life I will never get back. I heard about Abby Huntsman's new twins, woo-hoo. Then some inane patter about Joy Behar's wearing of sunglasses due to her cataract surgery, good for her. Aw, then she was mean about how Trump looked terrible in his tux while in Britain, which, yeah, he looked stiff and awful. Then Whoopi talked about age 90+ vets parachuting on D-Day. Behar talks about how incredible the site is, and she's right. More patter about all the gear the troops had to carry, and they're right. Then the military cemeteries which they urge you to go to, and they're right. Freedom ain't free, which is right. The Germans don't apparently often come to the German section of the cemetery, which, sure? Whoopi encourages people to look into the history of World War II and said that people who couldn't vote here (i.e. black people) went and fought over there, and she's right. She says that Japanese people put into concentration camps here in the states enlisted anyway and fought in the war, because they still loved this country, and she's right about that, too. They then talk about Trump's continued habit of personally insulting anyone who dares to criticize him; i.e. Bette Midler is a "washed up psycho", which he does; he makes a point to personally insult all of his 'enemies'. Behar says it was rich for Trump, a known draft dodger, speaking at Normandy on D-Day, and yes, Trump's a draft dodger. Do I have to liveblog the remaining 22 minutes of the haystack until I come to the needle that has you so outraged, or can you simplify matters and just provide a quote or a timestamp for what's got you so particularly outraged?

Also here is the relevant part of the Congressional record where the names of the black Americans that are buried at the Normandy American Cemetery were recited. These men all fought there. They are buried there. When is it ever enough for you? Or will you now change your requirements again, out of the desperate fear of being proven wrong on the Internet, and you will now insist that all along you've actually meant black men who died on June 6th that are buried there? If that's the case, that man's name was SGT Willie Collins. He died on Utah. Here's his grave at Normandy. Will you cry fake news at this, I wonder? Is this enough for you to at last show some fucking human decency? Semipenultimate (talk) 16:33, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
"Whoopi encourages people to look into the history of World War II and said that people who couldn't vote here (i.e. black people) went and fought over there, and she's right."
Wrong. Blacks were denied combat roles until 1947. But thank you, you found one black of 25,000 buried at Normandy. Whether he was gay or straight is another question. How an African American got into a white combat unit at Utah beach remains unanswered.
You cut off a little too early. Whoopi & Behar get into a section on a men's rights movement, which evidently are made of straight white men who support Trump and are Nazis who stand against everything the heroism of the straight white men who gave their lives defeat Hitler. nobsI'm all yea'res 17:52, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
The 490th Port Battalion was a segregated unit, which the 'one black' you speak of was deployed in, that was called upon to establish port operations (i.e. unloading vast supplies, prepping for Mulberry harbors) while under fire on D-Day on Utah Beach as part of the invasion. It's American heroism, period, and I will not see you deny their existence. Although black men were denied roles in front-line combat units, you should fucking well know that combat engineers, transportation battalions, and every other person involved in war can come under fire at any time so don't conflate 'weren't deployed to front-line combat units' with 'denied combat roles'. When they came under fire they shot back with the weapons they were issued, and died just as readily as their white counterparts. I watched The View for you. The least you could do is read the fuck up on the links I've so lovingly provided to the names of American heroes who fought and died so you could be free. There are many black men buried at the NAC; I just wanted to pre-empt your moving the goal posts to redefine what you were seeking (i.e. moving from 'how many blacks are buried there' to 'how many blacks who died on June 6th are buried there'). Since the 320th, as one example, served with distinction on Utah Beach on D-Day, the men were entitled to be buried at the NAC. So there are many black men interred there, and from multiple units. Go read the link to the Congressional record. The names are real, and so were the units. Here's a brief account of the 490th's deployment between 1/1943 and 9/1945. Stop, stop, stop, stop denying the existence of black heroes on D-Day. Stop denying that black units were involved in the landing on D-Day. Stop denying that black American men fought and died in Europe. The record is plain. You are not correct in your understanding of it. Semipenultimate (talk) 18:24, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
No one has denied any of it. Your research is admirable, and very much appreciated. I just didn't see any Black faces in the opening sequence of Spielberg and Hanks Saving Private Ryan.
Yes, there were blacks in the opening day of D-Day. How many climbed up the cliffs as Behar reconstructed? Yes, there were many blacks among the one million across the channel in the first 11 days, but most served, like Pete Buttigieg did, in behind the front line combat roles - receiving combat pay and valors. No one is denigrating their (conscripted) heroism. But simple facts remain: Democrats segregated them. Democrats denied them frontline combat roles. And Democrat, only Democrats, denied them the right to vote. nobsI'm all yea'res 19:45, 21 June 2019 (UTC)
And now there's no point in talking about this any more, since you deny any realignment of the unreconstructed confederate citizens who opposed 'forced busing' and other race-mixing from the Democratic party to the Republican party in 1964 and 1968 as a result of the Civil Rights Act. You deny the primacy of Lee Atwater and his tactics in modern Republican strategy. The RNC even acknowledged this to the NAACP in 2005, but you deny that too. You deny that the purpose of modern Republican-led voter purges that throw out vastly more qualified voters than unqualified voters is to purge voters of color. Counties with seg schools in the south are brick-fucking-red, nobs, but you deny that too. It isn't Democrats defending monuments to Confederate traitors; it's the Republicans currently in power who are enraptured by their love for the Confederacy that are lying across the tracks for this. Pro-seg organizations like the CCC consistently recommend Republican candidates, but you deny that too. You presume a conspiracy vaster than than that which would be required for chemtrails to be real, that millions of Democrats are just poised and ready to throw black Americans in chains again, and every Republican who demonstrates public racism is just an undercover agent for the conspiracy assigned to discredit the cause. It's a point refuted a thousand times. Semipenultimate (talk) 20:23, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

Speaking of The View, America's most watched political program, this morning they said we need more facts to determine the truth or falsity of fascist racist Democrat Joe Biden's segregationist proclivities; in the same breath they accuse Trump of calling for execution of the Central Park 5.

The Central Park jogger was raped, not murdered. nobsI'm all yea'res 18:12, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
I'll explain it slow. In 1989, Trump called for the death penalty for the Central Park 5. He has refused to acknowledge that he is wrong, on this, or anything. He has no knowledge of reciprocity, or how that standard was set by the Supreme Court. He still maintains, to the present day, his belief that they are guilty because of the false confessions. So because he will not recant his initial positions that 1, they did it, and 2, they deserved the death penalty for it, yes, he still believes they should have been put to death for it. Semipenultimate (talk) 18:30, 20 June 2019 (UTC)
Fact Check: Trumps full page ad makes no reference to the Central park 5 (it's called "presumption of innocence," something commie/libs forgot). The victim and prosecutor have not signed onto Bill De Blasio's pandering scheme, despite what commie propagandists like Ken Burns says.

When it became known to the FBI and IRS that Bill Clinton's White Counsel was an agent of a foreign power, he had to go. The Mossad whacked one of their own sources to avoid exposure in Congressional hearings.

Well honestly, I've listened to Trump a little more since the Mueller witch hunt ended. You always ask about Trump lies, but I really don't listen to him speak that much. And I sure as fuck don't believe bullshit fake news media reports about what he says, which evidently you do.

If you're talking social attitudes and corporate backing of left-wing ideas, then that's bullshit. More specifically the corporate backers only back left-wing ideas because they're profitable at the moment, and will just as easily back right wing ideas (like reduced corporate taxation, estate tax immunity, reduced regulations, etc) if it were to benefit them. Both parties are corrupt, but one is more corrupt than the other. Further, you make the mistake in assuming corporations are the ones driving social progress (they aren't), rather than noticing that they are merely exploiting existing social attitudes for their own gain, just as they have done for centuries. Corporations only started supporting LGBT rights for example, after activists and legislators had pushed through all the hard work, and not one second before. Why? Because backing the underdog isn't profitable unless the underdog wins. Then, and only then is the underdog a safe investment. You make the mistake of assuming they care which side wins, when in fact they're double-dealing and profiteering in every area they can, not one area in particular. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 15:57, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

(Reset) The Supreme Court is not the arbiter of what is or isn't homophobia. They did send the decision back to the lower court because their may have been prejudice against the baker, which is fair. But the point remains, if that is acceptable for gay people, then it will be for people of color, people with different religious beliefs and ethnicities.

Scientists have tied select genes to a higher likelihood of homosexuality, so designing a test is pretty simple.

BON this isn't the argument you think it is. First, it's not a celebration, it's a product. If you offer a product in exchange for money, you can't deny that product because of religious objections. if that offends you stop offering the product. Second, government doesn't "approve" of an ideology, or culture. That's kind of the point of things like the Bill of Rights. Lastly, I see American Flags all over the place where they don't belong, as well as crosses, but I keep moving on because it isn't harming me.

But if the government demands that you bake a customized cake celebrating gay marriage (again, standard cakes were offered and declined) that would be the de facto reality, regardless of whether the people involved intended to create a government-mandated celebration of an identity. No baker who offers customized cakes as an option is going to agree with every concept the customer has in mind.

(reset) JFC Y'all are just whipping out the word salad aren't you. The government isn't "demanding" anything. There are laws that say you can't discriminate based on race or sex. In certain states these rights have been expanded to gender and sexual orientation. In these instances, the baker discriminated against a couple. So they were taken to court for violating the law. Two particular cases reached SCOTUS, in the case of the Colorado baker, it was remanded to a lower court because there may have been prejudice from regulators (which definitely needs to be addressed). The Oregon case as I understand was remanded because the penalty was excessive. Either way both of these people are bigots, trying to hide behind religious objection. It's also not new, Southern Whites tried to hide behind religious objections against serving black people, and many right-wing Evangelicals tried to use religious objections to deny rights to women. Both of you are obfuscating the question bringing in questions about legal clients and privilege, so I'll repeat. If you attempted to purchase something from a hardware store, and when you went to pay they told you they don't sell products to white christians, would that be ok?--RipCityLiberal (talk) 20:04, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Looks like someone is unfamiliar with the meaning of "word salad". As for obfuscation, that's precisely what you've been doing.

If a vegetarian baker doesn't want to make cakes about religious ritual slaughter that's fine with me. If a Jewish baker doesn't want to make a cake spelling out "Christ is Lord" that's again fine with me. 2A02:1810:4D34:DC00:B5DF:7DC1:C41:AA5 (talk) 20:31, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
I'm not even gonna try to figure out what nobs is babbling about. As for the BON, both the Oregon and Colorado baker offer, among their services, wedding cakes. That's it. Nothing religious at all. They both objected based on their own religious beliefs. By inserting their religious beliefs in a simple transaction, they violated the law. There isn't really much else to these cases. And the examples you presented didn't apply to you. I'm asking you directly, would it be fair for someone to discriminate against your religious beliefs.--RipCityLiberal (talk) 21:05, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
Weddings are traditionally a deeply religious matter (and secular weddings to this day are still closely modeled after religious weddings), so you have the injection backwards.

Weddings have a religious element, but for all intents and purposes it is a legally binding contract because we don't have religious laws in this country.

But it would be a crime if the lawyer said, "I'm not going to represent you because my religious beliefs", that breaks the law in these cases. --RipCityLiberal (talk) 23:18, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
So let me get this straight: I go to a baker and say, "Bake me a cake," and he says "No," that's a crime. I go to a lawyer and say, "Represent me," and he says "No," that's just fine. So, there are protected industries, I imagine. nobsI'm all yea'res 01:04, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
If you go to a baker and say, "Bake me a cake," and he says, "No," that is not a crime. If he says, "No, you're gay/my religion/etc.," that is a crime. Likewise, if a lawyer doesn't represent you, that is his business decision. If he doesn't represent you because of his religious beliefs, then he is opening himself up to legal repercussions. And of course, you would have to bear the burden of proof when claiming they aren't servicing you because of their beliefs.Oshawottalot 04:35, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
Incorrect. SCOTUS has ruled it is not a crime. Secondly, what 'repercussions' are available to sue a lawyer? Thirdly, most all businesses reserve the right to refuse service to anyone (posting a sign is a separate issue). Fourthly, a business does not have to give a reason for refusal. Fifthly, Did the baker exercise his Constitutional right to the free exercise of religion to the gay couple, or the state Human Right's Commission? Sixthly, the fact the gay couple targeted a Christian baker, drove many miles with other wedding bakers in between, opens them up to charges of harassment, damages for legal bills, and a hate crime.

Firstly, assuming we are talking about this case,Wikipedia SCOTUS did not rule it is not a crime. They ruled that the Commission was not acting neutrally in regards to religion, and because of that they reversed the decision. They did not make any major ruling on anti-discrimination laws and the First Amendment because of the lack of neutrality. This should also be where I say my intent was to provide a simple summary/clarification because it appeared that you did not quite understand RipCityLiberal's last post. As for the protected industries, I believe that would be those that are not subject to anti-discrimination laws.
Secondly, the repercussions would be whatever legal actions you could take when a lawyer doesn't take your case because of his religious beliefs. I don't really know much about law, but I imagine that would be suing him or his practice on those anti-discrimination laws.
Thirdly, I'll admit I forgot businesses could do this and did not consider it. However, if I am arguing that the business is withholding service because of a religious belief, wouldn't this point be irrelevant? Because the business is already proven to be discriminating.
Fourthly, you are correct, a business does not have to give a reason for denying service. My argument relies on the business choosing to give a reason that happens to go against an anti-discrimination law.
Fithly, I am not sure what that question is or what you mean by it. Would you please clarify this for me?
Sixthly, the Wikipedia article doesn't state anything about their knowledge of the bakery or their trip to the bakery and past others, so I can and will neither confirm nor deny that. Assuming they did target a Christian baker, I'm not sure if it would open them up to harassment charges considering the establishment's discriminatory policy. At the very least it would probably be difficult to prove in court should the baker try to make such allegations.Oshawottalot 10:11, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
Bingo. The state Civil Rights Commission ignored the baker"s constitutional rights, discriminated, and ignored the hate crime committed by the gay couple. Good luck finding a lawyer willing to sue another lawyer. In the legal profession, the whole object is to find settlement between two lawyers - and avoid asking a third party (a judge) rule on their disputes. As to the fourth point, I imagine the scenario went down something like this:
The gay couple asked for the baker's services. They baker said "No." The couple may have inquired "Why?" he said "religious grounds." The couple filed a complaint with the Civil Rights Commission, (the theory being their case was similar to blacks denied lunch counter service in the early 1960s). When the state CRC investigated, the baker gave the same reason. This case is between the baker and the CRC, not the gay couple ("Congress shall make no law...etc.").
The Fifth point is answered by you providing the wiki link: the baker was exercising his constitutional right to the CRC when they investigated. Lastly, I heard somewhere the gay couple drove something like 70 miles to another town (the baker may have refused service to other gay couples earlier, word got around in the gay community, and he was targeted by this couple for a CRC complaint. The baker has not complained to the police or the CRC thus far of being the target of a hate crime, but I would suspect another test case on that issue is in the offing somewhere in the United States in coming years or decades. nobsI'm all yea'res 11:29, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
Not to belabor the point, this case is similar to the Hobby Lobby ruling: SCOTUS recognizes that some businesses are protected under the free exercise of religion clause, that God instructed his followers to start a cake shop or retail hobby shop to employ people and provide a service to the community. Such a business can be a greedy capitalist for-profit enterprise. It's an advantage that atheists foolishly ignore. nobsI'm all yea'res 11:53, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
I don't see how you can call this case similar to the "Hobby Lobby" case. In this case SCOTUS didn't recognize any new or more broad protections under the free exercise clause. They ruled the Commission wasn't neutral. Several of the Justices indicated that if the Commission was neutral, they might have ruled in favor of the Commission. Justice Kennedy wrote in the majority opinion, the baker "might have his right to the free exercise of his religion limited by generally applicable laws". So if we want to compare this to Hobby Lobby, it's almost close to the exact opposite. If the Commission wasn't a little too zealous in demanding repayment, it was very possible SCOTUS could have recognized that the free exercise of religion cannot be used to deny service to anyone. As it stands, we have a whole lot of nothing with this case. Nothing but extra care paid to make sure the government is neutral.Oshawottalot 13:09, 27 June 2019 (UTC)
From the Wikipedia page,
Responding to lower court judges' suggestion that the purpose of for-profit corporations "is simply to make money", the court said, "For-profit corporations, with ownership approval, support a wide variety of charitable causes, and it is not at all uncommon for such corporations to further humanitarian and other altruistic objectives."[44] The court rejected the contention that "the Nation lacks a tradition of exempting for-profit corporations from generally applicable laws," pointing to a federal statute from 1993 that exempted any covered health care entity from engaging in "certain activities related to abortion".[45]...The court held that the HHS contraception mandate substantially burdens the exercise of religion..."'

Post mortem[edit]

(reset)Thank you @Oshawottalot for engaging with my exact same arguments, so one of us can handle this shit while the other is living. Masterpiece is trying to use the same constitutional argument as Hobby Lobby, but the facts of the case are fundamentally different. Hobby Lobby was arguing a law about providing reproductive healthcare to women violated their religious beliefs. And SCOTUS made a narrow ruling pertaining to closely held private corporations. Masterpiece (And the Oregon case as well I think) argue that non-discrimination laws passed in their states, are unconstitutional. In neither case did SCOTUS say their laws were unconstitutional, only that the fines were excessive and the CO commission was prejudiced, which I think is fair. Rob I continue to be astounded that your logical arguments somehow manage to be worse than Kevin Kruse's personal plaything. You have a wild misunderstanding of Hate crime laws, as well it has been Conservatives in the state hunting for ways to manipulate the CRC law in Colorado. Overall, a lot of your thought experiments could be solved by these bigots rater simply; lie. But when you are under the belief that being cis-white christian is "normal" than you believe everyone should accommodate you. Also denying the Southern Strategy is so laughable to border on pathetic.--RipCityLiberal (talk) 16:13, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

Not to be redundant, but in both Hobby Lobby and Masterpiece case the argument is that their founding and operation of a business is a free exercise of religion, protected under both the First Amendment and the 1994 Religious Freedom Restoration Act (IOWs, the businesses never would have been founded, operated, hired people, provide services, and pay taxes, if not for some religious driving principal, not just "to make money," which is a common secular atheist motivation). Secondly, you evidentially do not understand that religion is protected by hate crime legislation.
As to the so-called Southern strategy, I've litigated this discussion for over ten years on both RW and CP. My experience is that facts are irrelevant to arguing with bigots over this. Unless you have something new to add, commenting on it would again be redundant. nobsI'm all yea'res 17:51, 27 June 2019 (UTC)

Drawing a swastika on a bathroom wall is a hate crime, with no specific target.

It's pretty obvious it was calculated, per-meditiated, and malicious with the intent to file a CRC complaint and cause harm in the form of negative publicity aimed to damage the baker's business and legal bills.

For something to be a hate crime, the act must first be a crime absent the extreme drive generated by the hate. Vandalism, property destruction, assault, rape, murder; these are all crimes that, absent hate, are still crimes. The motivation - hatred based on race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation - provides the added status of hate crime. You getting this yet? Trying to buy a wedding cake is not a crime. It is legal commerce. Take your little script-flipping bullshit back to the workshop, Mr. 'irrelevant to argue with bigots over this'. Semipenultimate (talk) 21:04, 28 June 2019 (UTC)

Right, we disagree on motive; which is why we have the whole of the legal system. In it, there's a standard of evidence that must be met for an opinion like 'Person X did Y for reason Z'. When an antisemite or homophobe attacks their victim of choice, you can present evidence from a variety of sources to prove a motive of hate. Lawyers make points in court that they think they will persuade a jury and help their argument (not counting Andy Schlafly in this since he's a crusader, and they make shitty points - never represent your own interests in a court of law). The lawyers representing Masterpiece did not make this point in what was ultimately a narrow ruling since the shop owner's prejudice happened before the Obergefell decision. So if your hate crime motive is a bad point that wouldn't hold up in court, why are you holding it up like some pearl you've found on the beach? Just trollin' the commielibs?

Let's try something new...[edit]

OK Rob, I'm going to try this a different way with you. Trump met with Putin in the last few days at the G20. He and Putin hammed it up talking about the 2016 election meddling as well as 'getting rid' of journalists who report 'fake news'. Now given that the overwhelming preponderance of evidence shows Russia did indeed meddle in the 2016 election and that Russia under Putin has a habit of jailing or 'disappearing' of journalists or opposition in its way I want to know how you can square this up with your own moral and political compass. Here are the facts:

  • Russia deliberately meddled in the 2016 election as evidenced by the USA's own intelligence
  • Trump openly denies his own administrations conclusions in support of Putin
  • Russia has a long history, under Putin, of bullying, harassing and murdering opposition as well as the idea of freedom of press in service of the Putin government
  • Trump openly joked about doing the same
  • Russia is a major adversary of the USA
  • Trump jokes about it

So my questions to you are - how can you be supportive of this and would you have supported this behavior if Obama had done the same. My question isn't about the Clintons, it isn't about Obama or communism. It is about Trump and Trump only. Do you, and why, do you support this? Rob, this is your moment to raise and defend a properly stated question. Deflections count as a loss. Not answering the question mean you lose. Now is your time Rob. Give me a cogent argument. If you have ever been to a university you'll understand how to structure and defend a position. Shine my man, show us your not a blind ideologue but an intellectual being with rational positions to stake out. The floor is yours....you defend your position and ask me to defend something you think I should answer. Like a proper debate. Off ya go...

Acei9 10:26, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
You need to go to fake news detox.
  • Russia tried, and failed, to hack into state election boards. Russia did not hack the DNC.
  • Trump never denied Russian attempts to hack into state election boards. Trump never denied Russian Facebook ads.
  • Bullying, harassing and murdering opposition is the stock in trade of Putin, Clinton, Obama, Brennan, Heinrich Himmler, and Felix Dzerzinsky. Obama particularly conducted a war on the First Amendment and freedom of the press.
  • Trump's a slow learner on the job.
  • Russia is an ally against (a) China, and (b) jihadis (Obama's pals).
  • It is a joke if you believe any of the crap the media wrote about Obama since (1) he was elected, (2) the IRS scandal, and (3) Eric Holder took over the DOJ.
I am supportive of the Freedom of Information Act, a Watergate reform, which the Obama administration has violated since the day it took office. I support Trump because I support reform. nobsI'm all yea'res 14:28, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
Eric Holder is indicative of the mindset of human rights abusers in the Obama administration. Holder stated in sworn Congressional testimony that the DOJ was founded in 1957, not 1870 as most text books state. Presumably, Holder is referring to the Republican 1957 Civil Rights Act, which created the DOJ Civil Rights Division, which Martin Luther King thanked Richard Nixon for, Lyndon Johnson opposed, John Kennedy voted against, and the Reagan era Democrat Majority Leader Grand Cyclops Robert Byrd filibustered against. Viewed from this perspective much of the convoluted and warped rational of Obama progressives begins to make sense. nobsI'm all yea'res 14:42, 29 June 2019 (UTC)

OK Rob, parsing your comments because almost 95% of what you said doesn't address any of the points I have raised. These are facts (which I have to repeat):
  • Russia deliberately meddled in the 2016 election as evidenced by the USA's own intelligence
  • Trump openly denies his own administrations conclusions in support of Putin
  • Russia has a long history, under Putin, of bullying, harassing and murdering opposition as well as the idea of freedom of press in service of the Putin government
  • Trump openly joked about doing the same
  • Russia is a major adversary of the USA
  • Trump jokes about it
This isn't fake news because these aren't things the media made up. Your own government, Trump's own administration, has made it clear that Russia meddled in the 2016 election but Trump believes Putin over his own people. Trump, in front of the cameras, joked about it. This has nothing to do with the media. Actually address the main thrust of what I am asking you - How can you be supportive of this and would you have supported this behavior if Obama had done the same.
You also say - Obama particularly conducted a war on the First Amendment and freedom of the press yet Trump jokes about how Putin bullies and murders the press and by implication, wishes he could do the same. Trump will question, bully and belittle any news organisation that doesn't give him fawning praise. Even questioning Fox News for just interviewing a Democratic candidate. How is this not a war on the freedom if press? Do you not see you utter hypocrisy? If not, why not? Acei9 21:20, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
Ok, let's look at each claim:
  • Russia deliberately meddled in the 2016 election as evidenced by the USA's own intelligence
  • The January 6, 2017 Intelligence Community Assessment is currently under review by U.S. Attorney John Durham; evidence points to biased sourcing fed into a media echo chamber; (Choose any source)
  • Trump openly denies his own administrations conclusions in support of Putin
  • Interesting parsing of words; Durham has yet to make a report.
  • Russia has a long history, under Putin, of bullying, harassing and murdering opposition as well as the idea of freedom of press in service of the Putin government
  • So did Abraham Lincoln, King David, and many other heads of state.
  • Trump openly joked about doing the same
  • Russia is a major adversary of the USA
  • The 80s are calling. They want their foreign policy back
  • Trump jokes about it
  • It is a joke, to take any of this bullshit seriously. nobsI'm all yea'res 22:16, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
What I think you fail to recognize, as is typical of both American intelligence operatives and the gullible American media consuming public, is that Spygate was a very amateurish operation. Brennan, Strzok, and all the other perpetrators are proud of their work, and feel they deserve a pat on the back for trying to save the NATO alliance and global trade deals from Trump. But it was destined to fail from the outset precisely because of their amateurishness. But you'll never convince "the greatest law enforcement agency" in the world or "greatest intelligence agency in the world" of their amateurishness. How far back do we have to go? U2? Bay of Pigs? Golf of Tonkin? Saddam's WMD? Iran 1954? Chile 1976? and that's not even discussing domestic law enforcement, Al Capone? Whitey Bulger? etc. nobsI'm all yea'res 22:49, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
While you're Gish Galloping all over the fucking place, let's just pick an easy one to start with: Andrew Breitbart. He drank way too much, ate way too much fantastic food, and was famous for tearing rages. Like many guys in their 40s with heart disease who do this and do not relent in their lifestyle or rage, he had a heart attack and it killed him. So to answer your question, Andrew Breitbart killed Andrew Breitbart. Party of personal responsibility, and all that. Does anyone die of natural causes in your world? Semipenultimate (talk) 15:34, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
That's an interesting (perhaps rhetorical) question you pose, @Semipenultimate. I know of at least one indigenous population whose traditional belief system had no conception of natural death: every death was believed to be sorcery based. Are conspiracy-based Christians actually practicing primitive religion, or some sort of sorcery/Christian syncretism? Bongolian (talk) 17:15, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
I think that conspiracy theory provides a lot of the same comfort as Christianity in the sense that it claims to be able to explain everything wrong with the world and point the finger at the 'real' culprit(s). Also CTs and Cs share the whole joy in feeling hard done by, in that 'Oh, they're attacking me, so I must be in the right' way. That way, you've turned the way of the world into this poor thing that would be right/perfect/good, if not for the actions of those who are stopping it from being so, rather than accepting it as the imperfect place it inherently is and trying to make the best of it. Semipenultimate (talk) 21:35, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
I don't know anything about Brietbart or his personal life. At the time I was under the impression Brietbart was hit by car.

Nobs, I find that both Occam's and Hanlon's razors are handy for keeping my life stress-free and firmly grounded in reality. Alex Jones, for example, was wrong with his assertion that 9/11 was an inside job, and that earned me the stinkeye from a lot of my liberal friends who wanted to believe the worst about their political opponents. But it never made any sense compared to the already-existing system, which requires no conspiracy, whereby if you are already investment-class wealthy, you can just keep doing that and make out like a bandit without the cumbersome unreliability and potential consequences of vast criminal conspiracies. Alex Jones has been wrong, and will continue to be wrong, because - and this is the part where you really need to listen - he does not understand what motivates his opponents, and never will. Because his presumptions are bullshit, so is the fruit of the tree, and the tree that grows from that, ad infinitum. The wrongness gets fractal as contradicting theories build up without having their contradictions analyzed or taken seriously. The point is to ask, does this match up with what was said last week, or the week before, is there any consistency as the trapeze act flies from conspiracy to conspiracy? This is why I continue to bring up Hillary's vast murders, because they're part of the underlying bedrock of straight-out-lies-and-fabrications that forms the basis of the last 25 years of the modern conservative movement - that your political foes are all conducting human sacrifice, or that the NAACP is a secret attempt by Democrats to bring back slavery. Semipenultimate (talk) 21:53, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
Whew. Wow. I don't know what Alex Jones or 9/11 Truthers have to do with me or this discussion. Non-sequiter.
I do know that Alex Jones did not cause a Special Counsel investigation of a sitting president by insinuating the president was in bed with a guy Louise Mensch claimed to have whacked Andrew Brietbart. If you look on the webserver right here, Rationalwiki, you will find a whacked out conspiracy theory first spread by Louise Menscch, that the Special Counsel himself says is bullshit. But a lot of RW's editors and readers still believe it. nobsI'm all yea'res 22:16, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
The point with Jones is that you have to put a particular analysis on fast-talkers who are short with the facts, especially when they're saying things that are pleasing to you and confirm your biases. It doesn't matter who says what about the death of Andrew Breitbart - absent additional -actual- evidence, the man died of heart problems. Otherwise you're just counting coup for bragging rights on the Internet, which, yeah, that and $2.50 gets you a cup of coffee at Starbucks. I just want to find the actual truth. Semipenultimate (talk) 22:23, 2 July 2019 (UTC)

Not to get sidetracked, it was Alex Jones and Roger Stone who first reported on the coup attempt and use of the 25th Amendment to overthrow Trump in real time. In fact, they were the only reporters. It took two years, numerous investigations and Congressional subpoenas , to get WaPo and NYT to report it. So, who were Jones' and Stones' sources? and why did YouTube delete the video evidence? nobsI'm all yea'res 00:17, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
That's not what a coup attempt is, nobs. Installing Pence as president is on exactly nobody's agenda; not that it makes any difference, since the president's own party controls the Senate. I imagine Jones' sources were the representatives talking openly about looking into the 25th amendment since this is not and has never been a secret, and as we all know, keeping everything out in the open is key to a successful coup. I also imagine that Youtube 'deleted the evidence' (see prior comments re: poison fruit) when they purged all of Jones' content from their privately-owned free service.

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── The 25th Amendment is a cabinet function. It is not the job of the FBI to poll the cabinet. The author of the Introduction of the Mueller Report, Alan Dershowitz, calls it a coup. And no, there was no public discussion among representatives on or before May 16, 2017, (day before Mueller was appointed), the day Mueller and Rosenstein met Trump in the Oval Office; Mueller "forgot" his cell phone in the meeting, which likely was the "wire" Rosenstein and McCabe discussed. The phone had to be retrieved later. From CP:

  • Roger Stone and Alex Jones warn of Deep State coup plot to remove Trump via the 25th Amendment.[1][2][3] Lisa Page corroborates McCabe's testimony that Rosenstein was not joking about his proposed coup plot.[4]
  • Andrew McCabe later confirms Alex Jones and Roger Stones' account. [5]

When Mueller testifies on July 17, he'll be asked these questions:

  • Were you aware President Trump was under investigation prior to your conversation of May 16th, with President Trump?
  • Were you aware of the nature of the investigation, prior to May 16, 2017?
  • Were you aware of the possibility of being appointed ‘special counsel’?
  • Did you take any recording devices into the Oval Office meeting?
  • Did you own the cell phone you left in the Oval Office on May 16, 2017?
  • Between the afternoon Oval Office meeting and the next day announcement to the Gang-of-Eight by Rod Rosenstein and Andrew McCabe, when exactly did you agree to become special counsel?
  • How did Rod Rosenstein contact you between May 16, 2017 and early morning May 17, 2017, about becoming special counsel?
  • Did you immediately agree to become special counsel when asked?
  • How much time transpired between Rosenstein asking you to become special counsel and your acceptance of the position?

Again, who were Stone and Jones's sources in a meeting that consisted of Rosenstein, McCabe, Lisa Page, and possibly unknown others before Mueller was appointed? nobsI'm all yea'res 22:43, 3 July 2019 (UTC)

Wow. Ok, none of that is true. You are referencing your own work, which while hilarious is not an objective source of information. Rosenstein also admitted the wire thing was in jest, as well there is a difference between the obstruction of justice investigation and the counter intelligence investigation, neither of which would require any level of surveillance of 45. Also Alan Desherowitz is not neutral, he has thrown his hat in with 45, and he's also not the best choice about whether something is morally right. I have no doubt that some of those questions will come up, but they aren't really within the scope of the investigation.--RipCityLiberal (talk) 23:15, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
Sources are cited. Lisa Page corroborates McCabe's version of "wearing a wire." McCabe reported on the forgotten recording device cell phone. Dershowitz was selected by WaPo, who received the contract for publication of the Mueller Report.
I note you can't answer the question, How did Jones and Stone learn of the DOJ/FBI discussion (nite of May 15, 2017) of persuading cabinet secretaries to invoke the 25th Amendment?
And then a bigger question: When was Mueller asked to lead the Special Counsel investigation, before or after his May 16, 2017 interview with Trump? This question will answer whether or not Mueller was involved in the treasonous activities of sedition, coup, and overthrowing a constitutionally elected president. nobsI'm all yea'res 00:25, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── This shouldn't be an ideological debate. I'm turning over the germ of an idea for an User:RobSmith/Essay:FOIA.

Mueller[edit]

The wp:FOIA was probably the singular biggest post-Watergate major reform (among 4 or 5 major pieces of post-Watergate legislation). The UK passed its own version of a FOIA, I think, in the 1990s.

After studying numerous of these government reports, like the Morganthau Diaries, the Institute of Pacific Relations report, the Warren Report, the Watergate reports, Tower Commission Report, BCCI report, Whitewater report, Moynihan Commission report, Chinagate report, 9/11 report, Benghazi report, Mueller report and others, I got something to say.

Let's take Iran Contra and Benghazi reports, for example; the "official report" is the official coverup, in both instances. For 50 years I've mocked the Kennedy assignation conspiracy theorists. The past 5 years or so, I'm beginning to have my doubts about the sanctity of the Warren Commission Report. The Mueller report is groundbreaking, in that, the conspiracy against Donald Trump was so poorly executed by amateurs, Mueller is wishing for a way to get his name off it. It will never withstand historical scrutiny. It's already falling apart like paper maché in a tub of Drano.

Back to Benghazi. In the Benghazi investigation, like the Mueller investigation and Iran Contra, the actual facts of CIA activity was ignored by a bi-partisan consensus, while certain vulnerable scapegoats were offered up for human sacrifice.

I could go on, but its best to leave it for an Essay. nobsI'm all yea'res 04:42, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

I think you mean - the conspiracy by Donald Trump's team was so poorly executed by amateurs which is why some of them are in jail and Mueller stated in no uncertain terms that if he wasn't president he could be charged with obstruction. But you'll twist the whole thing to twist your increasingly unlikely analysis. You're a buffoonish hack and hypocrite of the highest order. Acei9 05:41, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
Oh, are you saying Brennan and Comey can avoid jail time? Flynn, Manafort, and Papadopolous will be pardoned for their non-Russia collusion crimes. I used to think Trump should wait til Nov. 4, 2020, the day after Election Day. However after today, I'd have had it done by 4:00 P.M. nobsI'm all yea'res 06:04, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
After today when the it was read, again, the first line of the report which stated Russia did influence the election and how Mueller said that Trump would be indicted had he not been president. Do you have some part of your brain that is immune to the reality of the situation? What is it about Trump that you are so willing to lie to yourself about? Why are republicans so blase about protecting your electoral system from Russian interference? Rob, here's where it doesn't make sense - if any Republican or Trump himself thought Russia influenced the election on behalf of or for the benefit of Clinton they would be all over it making sure it never happened again but they aren't doing anything - because they know Russia again will help them win. Second hand of course with plausible deniability but every shred of integrity has been striped from your conservative christian base. What a hollow shell you have become. Acei9 06:28, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

You mean the one where Barr lied his ass off in his spin on the report? Oxyaena Harass 13:51, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
This one: “The Attorney General has previously stated that the Special Counsel repeatedly affirmed that he was not saying that, but for the OLC opinion, he would have found the President obstructed justice. The Special Counsel’s report and his statement today made clear that the office concluded it would not reach a determination — one way or the other — about whether the President committed a crime. There is no conflict between these statements," a joint statement from DOJ spokeswoman Kerri Kupec and Mueller spokesman Peter Carr said. [12]
If Mueller found obstruction of justice, he would have written it in the report and left the findings to Congress to indict. He found no evidence. nobsI'm all yea'res 14:02, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── These are the facts:

  • The extent of Russian government involvement has not been established;
  • Russians did not hack the DNC;
  • Russians did not share DNC emails with Wikileaks.

I don’t know if illegal aliens have First Amendment rights. But no ones talking about illegal aliens - we are talking about your stupid suggestion that Russians in Russia have first amendment rights (they don’t) and the First Amendment covering things like FaceBook (it doesn’t). So 2 stupid claims and a dumb non-sequiter about illegal immigrants. You’re hopeless Rob. A stone cold idiot. Acei9 04:51, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
Well, I got news for you: Russians in Russia and the United States, both online and offline, have a First Amendment right to express their preference for or against a candidate for president. nobsI'm all yea'res 05:04, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

Rob, the First Amendment doesn’t apply to foreign citizens in foreign countries and you have no freedom of speech on Facebook. Facebook decides its own policies of speech. You have no first amendment rights on a private site like FB, Conservapedia or any other privately held business. So you’re still wrong. Acei9 05:11, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

(a) Free speech rights are given by God, it doesn't matter what country you live in; (b) Facebook took money from Russians to exercise their free speech rights, which is kinda the goal of globalism, which is sorta the thing Trump opposes, which is sorta the reason why people call him a fascist. nobsI'm all yea'res 05:19, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
Except for the fact the 3 Commandment explicitly forbids freedom of speech. And unfortunately no matter how much you blather about God you have no freedom of speech on a platform like Facebook. And isn't it ironic that Rationalwiki, a site maintained and built by atheists has greater freedom of speech than Conservapedia? Also your own president tells people who criticise him or the US that they can get out and leave. What a wonderful champion of free speech. You're own personal god doesn't dictate freedom of speech laws, Rob. Acei9 07:29, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
(The Founding Fathers upheld a doctrine of natural rights (see Declaration of Independence, first line). The Bill of Rights simply lists a few of these rights explicitly, it doesn't create them.) 2A02:1810:4D34:DC00:D52E:397D:C058:1BEE (talk) 06:48, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
The the originalist intent of the First Amendment refers to political speech, not nude dancing or baking a cake . In the case of Facebook, we are referring to contract rights - under globalist monetary and trade doctrine and agreements, Russians have the right of entering into contracts with Facebook to exercise free speech. This sort of activity has in fact been the policy of the U.S. government since the end of the Cold War. The United States government has actively encouraged expanding trade agreements with the former Soviet Union since 1993, for example, U.S. businessmen building hotels in Moscow.
A voluntary contract between Facebook and Russian advertisers exercising free political speech differs from involuntary contracts promoted by American communists, such as Obamacare, bakers required to bake cakes for gay couples, or bikini waxers required to wax a transgender's balls. nobsI'm all yea'res 15:05, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
A voluntary contract between Facebook and Russian advertisers exercising free political speech No Rob, just no. FB is not a place where you have free speech. Facebook dictates what is allowed on Facebook. Conservapedia dictates what is allowed on Conservapedia. Free speech does not apply. I don't know why you keep talking about bakers or waxers. Some weird fetish of yours I guess. Like little miss Kara Duhe. Remember that - we all had a good laugh. Acei9 04:44, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
Why are you proposing the US government intervene to limit the political speech of foreigners? This is some crazy imperialist shite you're advocating. Hasn't the US oppressed enough people yet? 2A02:1810:4D34:DC00:D52E:397D:C058:1BEE (talk) 04:54, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
I don't understand it either. KGB agents can cross the Rio Grande illegally get a free sex change operation in the United States as a human right, but Russians can't purchase ad space on Facebook to express their political views. Doesn't make sense. nobsI'm all yea'res 05:01, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

John Solomon is the source. IG Michael Horowitz will confirm shortly.

  • The leak led to the appointment of a special counsel.
  • Inspector General Michael Horowitz determined the leak was illegal.
  • IG Horowitz made a criminal referral to the DOJ.
  • The DOJ (D.C. U.S. Attorney Jody Hunt) declined prosecution.
  • An FBI Deputy Assistant Director has been disciplined for leaking the non-prosecution decision to John Solomon.
  • Speculation exists that U.S. Attorney John Durham, who is investigating the origins of the Crossfire Hurricane, "has bigger fish to fry." [13]

Apology[edit]

I do apologize. The exact language is "repairing historic oppression of indigenous peoples, communities of color, migrant communities, deindustrialized communities, depopulated rural communities, the poor, low-income workers, women, the elderly, the unhoused, people with disabilities, and youth (referred to in this resolution as “frontline and vulnerable communities”)". It was hyperbolic on my part and I apologize. nobsI'm all yea'res 16:04, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

I do have one question though; How does the U.S. federal government repair historic oppression of youth who weren't born yet? nobsI'm all yea'res 16:07, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
Adequate. Now we can see that the actual text you're referring to, while clearly and explicitly not being even remotely about slavery reparations, and in fact, describes a secondary(well quinary) aim of the proposal, and not an action that supports the main aim. We can have an honest conversation. Doesn't it feel good to be honest? You can see how the "vulnerable and frontline communities" text is used elsewhere in the document. "ensuring that frontline and vulnerable communities shall not be adversely affected" sure seems like a reasonable request. As does "directing investments to spur economic development, deepen and diversify industry and business in local and regional economies, and build wealth and community ownership, while prioritizing high-quality job creation and economic, social, and environmental benefits in frontline and vulnerable communities, and deindustrialized communities, that may otherwise struggle with the transition away from greenhouse gas intensive industries;" Man, it's almost like it's trying to unify a strategy to help the poor and struggling who have their livelihoods tied too closely to fossil fuels. That'd be crazy, wouldn't it? Being aware of the potential unintended consequences of a bill.
(EC) your question is dumb and relates to assuming your conclusion. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 16:13, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
Well good. Let's have a discussion just like in a congressional committee. I doubt the language, as written, will ever make it to the floor for a vote.
The main thrust here, however, is this bill is predicated on science,
  • Whereas the October 2018 report entitled “Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 ºC” by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the November 2018 Fourth National Climate Assessment report found that, et seqq.
  • Resolved, That it is...the duty of the Federal Government to create... resiliency... see Beto O'Rouke, First debate... to promote justice and equity by stopping current, preventing future, and repairing historic oppression [the bill does not define oppression]...
I'll stop there for right now. It's pretty obvious this proposal uses hard science to mask social spending. It's not unlike a debate in the 1950s that got the federal government to pay for school lunches. But there remains no scientific evidence that reparations to historically oppressed communities will reduce carbon emissions, which is what the science of this bill (“Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 ºC” ) is predicated on. nobsI'm all yea'res 16:49, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
It literally calls itself a fucking "new deal". Of course it has social spending. The fuck goes through your head? She's not a technocrat like obama looking to tweak incentives, she's trying to set up a government program that changes a core component of our entire economy. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 17:51, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
What scientific evidence do you have that "repairing historic oppression of indigenous peoples, communities of color, migrant communities, deindustrialized communities, depopulated rural communities, the poor, low-income workers, women, the elderly, the unhoused, people with disabilities, and youth" will keep global temperatures "below 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrialized levels"?
