WHITE POWER COMES TO MIDVALE!

(http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/6183/midale2.jpg)

Read the whole thing here (http://www.aryan-nation.org/zog/WHITEPOWERCOMESTOMIDVALE/page_01.htm.html). Funnily enough there's an altered version in existence, which retains the racism but removes all references to Nazism - for the non-denominational white nationalist, presumably.

I suppose someone decided the swastika is the religious symbol of Nazi Mysticism? :S

But oh my gosh those cartoons are a hoot and a half.

Edited to add- Oh goodness, it's hosted on Aryan-Nation.org? I haven't seen those chaps in a while when it comes to this sort of thing.

Isn't it illegal to show a swastika on German television?

No. Not really. It is illegal to show it in a 'positive light' but if you show that it's educational than no. Many games and documentaries have gotten the educational exception for the swastika. Not to mention you can also have it plastered on a book cover if you like.  However, I don't mean animated cartoons. Aryan-Nation.org likewise is not stationed in Germany.

I would like to see how someone in Germany is able to surf to a site like Aryan-Nation.org as I am not knowledgeable in that part of things. I only know of the movies, shows and video games.

And the Swastika isn't even magically linked to Nazi Mysticism. They used a completely different symbol for that. So I'm a little puzzled over replacing it with the 'life rune' which admittedly is used in Nazi Mysticism.

I apologize if I misunderstood the question tho.

Panel 2: As long as he keeps it in the bedroom and doesn't try to impose it on other people, that's fine.

They're, so far as I can tell, homeopathic nutjobs. So the government mandating vaccinations and removing kids from the care of parents who deny them life-saving treatments (when there is no legitimate reason to do so) would be the tyranny they're afraid of.

Why do they always make the swatiska the symbol for white people?  What if I, a white person, think the nazis were clueless douche bags?

An the life rune as a substitute?  Now all white people are nordic!  What the hell?

Well I guess the options are limited.   What could we draw to represent white people?

If both are hiding in my house, then obviously I fear the black man more than the spider. Not because he is black, but because he is a man - a human being, capable of using tools and intelligence to inflict far more pain than a spider could ever dream of.

Also, because I can't squish him underfoot.

I think I mentioned this before but some people don't out and out deny that the Holocaust existed but rather on what scale. Why? Because some people can't wrap their mind around such massive atrocities.

With that said... if anyone is curious about what some deniers are reading this site (http://www.codoh.com/revision.html) holds a lot of the different theories and 'papers' and 'research' that is being touted around.

Because they have this persecution complex and admitting the holocaust happened would mean there would be other, more significant, victims.

So to them, Hitler was just a nice guy who neither invaded other countries in violation of their sovereignty nor committed the most well known act of genocide in history. I just wonder what they could do if all that effort spent on mental gymnastics was used productively.

I remember someone in my JROTC class wouldn't sit still or be quiet during the pledge (and I don't mean they couldn't. I mean they wouldn't and they'd mutter about how stupid it was). I had to wonder why they were in JROTC if they couldn't stand at attention for a few seconds or even wanted to say the pledge. It was fine with the Chief if someone didn't want to but you did have to come to attention for it. It was JROTC for crying out loud.

As much as I abhor Holocaust denial, I'm not terribly fond of laws banning the expression of those opinions.

The Pledge of Allegiance

I find the whole concept rather disconcerting. Gaining loyalty through rote is too cult-like for my tastes. Plus, people should be pledging allegiance to humanity, not a flag.

Possibly the fight in Afghanistan. Assuming the enemy over there was in any sort of position to launch further strikes. But then again, then the actual threat to our rights, as opposed to our personal safety, actually came from Congress.

For some people it is.  Particularly SHARPs (Skin Heads Against Racial Prejudice).  IIRC, you can identify a SHARP by their bootlaces: red laces over black boots (interestingly, I met a SHARP once who wore Oxblood Grinders with black laces for the same reason).  True Skins generally wear white laces over black boots (get it?).  Of course, there are those on both sides that wear black/black because they don't bother to change the laces or just don't care/know.

There are other indicators that I don't recall offhand since it's been quite a few years since I have been around any SHARPs (or True Skins).  SHARPs and True Skins are often (not always) rival factions.

The irony is that Afghanistan never posed any kind of threat to our actual rights. All the shit that's been dismantled, is being dismantled, is stuff that we're doing to ourselves. Wrapped in a flag, and carrying the cross.

And when was the last war that was fought to prevent an actual threat?

The American Right likes to think that it is being persecuted on all ends by Muslims and commies. They still live in the 50's mindset that a nuke is going to drop and blow us all up any minute now if we don't worship the military-industrial complex and recite mindless jingoistic mantras.

Having served in the US Military I can say the pledge definitely has it's place, and I encourage its use for military personnel and other government workers (such as politicians) as upholding it is a part of their specific duty. I do not, however, think it really belongs in our schools. Children are not able to really understand it when it's first done (I remember it being recited as early as Kindergarten, though I can't remember if it was in pre-school or not), and putting it in such a place makes them feel it's a necessity instead of a choice. Some people desire to move to another country when they grow up (for whatever reason), and there's also the issue of exchange students and students who are a citizen of multiple countries. I also do not appreciate it made into something that people will mindlessly recite, as that is one of the best ways to degrade it into complete meaninglessness.

It makes sense in the military and the government, because in that case you really are working for the sake of your country. It's the school pledges that make my blood boil, because it's imposing a belief system on children who don't necessarily accept it. There are a number of foreign exchange students at my school (from Argentina, Northern Ireland, Germany, etc.) and none of them stand to do the pledge. There are even teachers who have immigrated from other countries, and they do not stand to do the pledge.

I would actually prefer a pledge to the constitution than the flag, as I feel it makes far more sense. I would say pledging it to the country as a whole and its ideals would be better, but I think the constitution holds the ideals in as concrete a manner as possible.

In my almost 4 years in a U.S. public high school, I have never once seen any student stand at attention like that and actually recite the pledge. Sure, most of them will stand up, but that's about it. No hand-over-chest, no facing the flag, and definitely no verbal recitation.

Kids don't give as much of a shit about their loyalty pledge as these people seem to think.

I thought "Under God" was added during the Cold War because America wanted to distance itself from those filthy godless commies as much as possible.

Under God was added in 1954 despite Bellamy's family's protests. The official story is that Bowman first added "Under God" because of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. The Knights of Columbus added it a bit earlier than 1954. Langmack wrote to have it officially added to the Pledge spoken by all across the US. Eisenhower, at Docherty's service and being a born again Christian felt that Under God should be added in there to affirm the US's spirituality and faith in God.

Though some people have taken it to believe it was added during the 50s because of Communist hate. It was more like we had a born again Christian who was all too eager to go 'hey guys, guys, look I'm a Christian! Look! I added Under God into a pledge everyone has to recite! Look!" But that's my take on it. Bellamy's family has never forgiven the change. For multiple reasons.

This actually proves Dawkin's point. So the boy made the pony, and even though the pony can not see or hear the boy, the boy exists. Gotcha. The boy is supposed to represent the God that created us, the God that we can neither see nor hear. I'm with the cartoonist so far....but wait. The point the cartoon is trying to refute is the "who created God" bit. But....the boy, our metaphor for God in this cartoon, has a verifiable, identifiable creator in his parents, and a well-understood method by which he was created.

The cartoon seems to be arguing that God indeed does have a creator. But if God has a creator, then wouldn't that make him limited and therefore.....not God?

This cartoon argues against itself.

That's supposed to be Beyonce and Jay-Z. Still have no clue what the cartoon is trying to say, though. Are they attention-whoring their child? Black people like precious metals?
I think it's referring to how they included cries of their newborn into their newest song.

Not to mention having the hospital turn off the security cameras on that floor.

On the other hand, TMZ and a dozens of other tabloid publications around the world would pay thousands of dollars for a photo, cell phone video, leaked security tape, or any visual record of them and their baby so long as it was an exclusive. While there is a degree of attention whoring going on, I can't really blame them for wanting absolute privacy during the birthing process or making art (because that's their job) about their new baby. Call them diva demands, but I really get Beyonce not wanting some schmuck trying to capture a cell phone video of her in labor.

Fair enough. Asking the nurses to hand over the cell phones and turning off the security cameras directly in their area I understand.

Trying to block a father from getting into, and then out of, the NICU was a horrid move by her security staff. For what they allegedly spent on this affair they could have had a private doctor at home.

Not just mothers - many bright young male students have had to give up study and take dead-end jobs just to provide for their new family :(

You gave them 50 years? How charming.

My money says we will see this same cartoon within 30 years. The judge will be talking to an interracial gay couple and their adopted children. He'll be being pulled away by multiple partners.

Cause after homosexual marriage the only consenting adults we don't have covered would be poly. And, as Dave Attel said:

I would hope it'd be 30 years instead of 50.  Then, I'd probably be able to see it.  Sure, I'd be pushing 70, but even so, it'd be beautiful if I lived long enough to see the human race take that step forward. :)

Also, on his site, he explains that in his painting "One Nation Under God", each person represents a symbol of something that "influenced the Constitution in a positive way." Which basically means he thinks Palpatine did some good.

My first impression was a judge, and looking at the site shows that it is supposed to be a supreme court judge, being there because of the "evil" rulings; most likely things like Roe vs Wade, LGBTQI protections, and other such liberal rulings that uphold the actual spirit of the constitution.

They aren't totally illegal. It depends on the state, although it is illegal in most states. In those states where it is legal the reasons a woman can get one are very limited.

We'll just have to all marry each other in different districts, because of the whole polygamy thing, and then we can have some kind of awesome three-way marriage that will make Ironbite's head explode.

Which is why I'd never work at a Catholic hospital.  Got one in Little Rock, St. Vincent, and I'd rather work at Wal-Mart or McDonald's.  They pay might be shittier, but at least I won't even nominally be supporting the Catholic church...and I have a smaller chance of running into my grandfather.  Though, it would afford me the chance to say something I've always wanted to say to him: "I can't be a vulture; that assumes that I'd care when you die."

Uhm... do any of these people realize that THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WHO UTILIZE CONTRACEPTION EVENTUALLY HAVE CHILDREN ANYWAY?

People who either elect voluntarily not to reproduce or are in some other way unable to do it (infertility, being trans, being gay) and don't utilize fertility treatments are in the minority. A tiny minority. MOST PEOPLE STILL HAVE CHILDREN AND CONTRACEPTION USE DOES NOT CHANGE THAT. All it does is let people decide for themselves when and how often.

Of course anything but GAWD'S WILL is unacceptable, amirite?

Which is only funny because he's totally against government handouts.

Well, see, handouts are only bad when it is SOMEONE ELSE getting the handout.

I would take this a step further and say that killing anyone (whose not armed and on the field of battle of course) without trial is wrong. We should have taken every chance possible to give Bin Laden a "fair" trail (how fair can it be really?). Yeah, I'm not losing sleep over his death, but I think it speaks volumes to the rest of the world that we are a people of law how act and abide by it (even if it does have flaws). I think it only tarnishes our moral high ground to not give them a trial. Even more so with Al-Awlaki because he's an American citizen.

In either case, Bin Laden, Al-Awlaki, or anyone else affiliated with Al-Qaeda/terrorism, I'm not going to complain if/when die. I just think it would be the moral thing to do to give them a trial.

Also, post 150!  :D

You know something? I am. I recognize my country has flaws. I am perfectly willing to accept that other nations are better than mine in a variety of ways. I'm pissed at corruption, gays being denied rights, economic woes. I see every scar, wrinkle and pock on the face of America.

I love it anyway.

You want to mock me for it, go ahead, but I am a patriot regardless of its imperfections.

I will thanks.

I don't hate America at all, I just hate how much the corrupt asshats in charge have screwed it up.

I do hate America. But don't take it personally, I hate all states.

But illegal under federal law still. Which means even in Cali, where medical marijuana is legal, the feds can still raid a place that dispenses it. (I was going to say "raid the joint" but, well, you know...)

I'm familiar with Cox & Forkum. They're in favor of same-sex marriage, support the separation of church and state, and they're pro-choice. From what I understand they don't do political cartoons anymore though.

In all seriousness, I am befuddled at the fears I was hearing from people for awhile.

"You want some bureaucrat deciding your coverage?" Same as the accountant that does now. At least I vote for the bureaucrat's boss.

"Just wait for the hour long waiting lines!" I already take a number and expect an hour wait. Where do you go?

"Now you'll have to wait forever to get a procedure done!" Just last week I saw a report on an insurance company essentially killing someone through this method.

I'm not saying government-run care would be better... I just don't see how it could be worse!

I love this arguement, given the fact that they ignore for the most part that the most serious issues are dealt with right away,if you have to can't have it done in the country, you can have in done in another country, and your country will cover the charges and there are private practices and such in a lot of the countries that have universal healthcare and you can always go to one of them and pay out of pocket.

I can understand why people get angry when drug addicts use welfare money to purchase narcotics, but I can think of about a zillion problems that would arise if the state began cutting off benefits based on failed drug tests, especially if they're testing for soft drugs like marijuana in addition to the harder stuff.

I don't think that employers require drug testing for applications. I know mine required it as a condition of accepting the job offer, but that was after I'd turned in my application and gone to two interviews. And, unlike welfare drug testing, they paid for it. Completely. They might have required reimbursement if I failed it, but  I don't think so.

It's just another excuse to slam the poor, that's all it is. But these are the same people who think that those on welfare stay on it for decades, despite that the Welfare Reform law of 1996 is still on the books, which turned Welfare into a more or less a jobs program.

Are you sure this cartoon isn't secretly pro-obama (kind of like a poe) to the extent of the huge amount of hyperbole in referring to higher taxes as the same as being sacrificed in a volcano? And the blatantly racist depiction of Obama

There are several versions about using holy symbols against vampires in fiction.

In some cases it only works if the vampire was/is a follower of that religion but I prefer the version where the wielder of the symbol is the one whos' faith matters.
I think there is a book where a soviet commissar realises that his cross won't work because he is an atheist so he drives away the vampire using a communist symbol. (Either some book or some commissarial symbol, I forget which.) Oh and some rich yuppie banishes vampires by using his wallet since money is the thing that he has devoted his life to.

Post by: Osama bin Bambi on February 21, 2012, 04:05:00 am
I'd think that an atheist vampire would be immune to holy water, crucifixes, and the like. Vampire hunters, regardless of religion, probably carry around crucifixes by default because it's the most likely to be the religion a vampire followed in life. That, and you can stab them with it.

(click to show/hide)

On-topic...

That little comic thing is just what the fuck.  So, bad things happen to bad people because Jesus is proxy-spanking them?

(Time for holy run on sentence batman)
So a middle-aged construction worker who (using a hybrid Christian values and REAL values here) prays to God five times daily,
isn't an abusive husband,
raised his kids well (without abuse),
is faithful to his wife,
doesn't swear,
reads his Bible,
attends church every week,
tithes regularly,
works at a charity,
introduced three of his friends to his church,
ends up getting his legs smashed when the crane's cable spontaneously breaks while transporting an i-Beam,
has to pay for the hospital bill out of pocket because his insurance company refuses to cover it,
gets fired "laid off" from his job,
can't get another job because he's too old "Too close to retirement age", and
nearly dies from a heart attack due to stress from all of the above
is somehow a bad person who God is proxy-spanking for whatever reason?

Or, if it only applies to kids, how about...
A kid who loves to go to Church,
who gets good grades,
helps his fellow students with schoolwork without cheating,
does his chores around the house without asking for money for it,
spends his allowance wisely,
eats his vegetables,
does fundraisers to help raise money for the poor and hungry,
prays to God every night before going to bed,
ends up developing leukemia,
undergoes painful radiation and chemotherapy,
ends up living a half-existence for months and months due to the process killing some of his brain cells,
can't keep up with schoolwork anymore due to not having the brain capacity, and
ends up not being able to graduate from high school because he just can't think
...is somehow being proxy-spanked by Jesus for something?

FUCK THAT SHIT.

We've been over this. In some episode of Atop the 4th wall we find out that batman believes that his parents died because he listened to rock music.

Seriously, he listened to rock (well one song that happened to be on the radio), his dad got angry and forbid him from doing it again and later that night his parents were shot.

Just saw this one story arc where Umbert is running for fetus president against "Joyce". Umbert is pro-life and Joyce is pro-choice. After many bad puns, it is strongly implied Joyce gets aborted.

Oh. It's filled with grammar issues too. How interesting.

A handful of Muslim extremists attacked a U.S. building, therefore it's justified to torture every Muslim who walks through an airport? Fuck you.

There was a book written by a guy in the CIA, IIRC. I can't find it right now. But in it, he explains that torture really doesn't give any useful information because 1) innocent people will be made to "confess" to almost anything, and 2) the real terrorists are trained to give false information anyway. His group did actual interrogations. They would find out which specific person could give them the information they wanted, they'd collect information on them, and when the time came they'd take them to another location to interview them. But in these interviews, the first question they asked was, "How are your kids?" or "We have your wife on the phone, would you like to speak to her?" They actually got more information from tidbits of personal conversation than they did from torturing the shit out of them.

He also says that torture set back the U.S. finding Osama bin Laden by several years, and that it should not have taken as long as it did.

Try getting a skinhead to actually admit he's racist first. Or doesn't like Jewish people. Or black people. I've run into a few people who insist it's just a fashion genre.
I've only read the thread up to this post but I want to say that having a shaved head doesn't mean your racist. I know of people who are going bald pretty young and would rather just shave it all off than have patches of hair. Other people might do it because the don't want to bother with hair. Also in this economy think of the money you would save on shampoo(jk on that one).

Although I think identification as a skinhead is more than simply a shaved head. I would have thought shaved head Doc Martens and bomber jackets.

Personally I have a shaved head (balding) but am quite obviously not a skinhead. Crewcuts (shaved heads) became pretty fashionable in the 90s but its still different from being a skinhead.

I wasn't aware bomber jackets(I kinda want one now that I think about it) or Doc Martens(I wear combat boots most of the time) made you a racist either. That just sounds more like a punk rocker than than anything. Unless someone has a shirt that says "white power" or such I wouldn't call someone racist by what they wear or how they look. Also I should note that while I'm probably one of the most open minded, accepting people out there, I kind of like fashions that some would call Nazi-esque(It might have something to do with the Nazis hiring a professional fashion designer) . I once saw authentic Nazi jack-boots on for sale online real cheap(like $5.00 a pair), I would have bought a couple pairs but my size wasn't available. Don't judge a book by it's cover, or a person by their clothes. As I said, skinheads and punk rockers look alot alike.

I doesn't help peoples opinion of me that my favorite band is Rammstein. As I said in another thread I hate the dozen or so videos on youtube that use Rammstein's song "Amerika" to a montage of pictures showing Obama with Hitler mustaches, devil horns, or both. I've had to reiterate that I'm in no way a Nazi several times to people that I've had to threaten a couple people that if they make a comment about me and Nazi's I punch them in the face, and I damn well mean it.

Wow, blast from the past a la mode.

Except I never mentioned just a shaved head (besides y'know 'skinhead'). Skinheads have a more specific way of finding them out than just a shaved head.

While there may be some skinheads that stay with the original definition more often than not you've run into a racist.

If you run into a guy wearing combat trousers (most often camouflage), along with a white tank top (sometimes it is black or olive green) or a regular white, black, olive green t-shirt, and suspenders then a cabbie hat, finished off with black combat boots then you have run into the racist version of a skinhead. They also may or may not have a flight jacket on (don't want their arms getting cold or to hide their racist/white power tats).

This is, of course, from general experience as well as what I've seen on the various neo-nazi/skinhead sites that I have the displeasure of running into thanks to looking at the mainpage.

I never thought I'd have to explain this two months later.

You're also assuming I'm judging right off the bat from what I see someone wearing. No. It has to do with a lot of factors that I wish not to explain right now.

I'm just now getting around to reading this thread. Thanks for the clarification. Just so you know, if I had was more in shape I would probably wear a lot of that, minus the hat(different hat maybe) and tats. Good to know your don't judge people right away. I won't assume someone if anything unless I hear them make a comment to that effect. If someone makes a racist comment then I will be one of the first to call them on it.

I agree. It's such a cute, funny, well-executed comic despite having a ridiculous message. I feel the same about those BRAIN-DEAD "Umbert The Unborn" ones. I LOATHE the abortion message but it's drawn in such an amusing, cute, clever way that it takes the edge off the inflammatory message.

Now, while I think society has gone pharmaceutical-crazy & that we've been going overboard with the medicating, I'm NOT gonna throw the baby out with the bathwater! Meds have an important place & a person with a serious, life-threatening medical condition is not going to be helped by a simple supplement.

I'm pretty sure there's no place where it's legal to kill a late-term or partial birth infant, either.  There are situations where they cannot SAVE the infant in order to save the mother's life, in which case the infant would have most likely died anyways.  Of course, these folks are aghast that one would consider a grown woman's life more valuable than a newborn baby's.

Once the baby is born, and I was a doctor I'd personally value them both equally and would do my best to make sure both survive.  If one is lost past then and the other lives, whichever it is; I don't think there could be a 'right' choice of who to try to save.  Just whomever you can.  It's a Kobiyashi Maru situation.  No right answer.  Yes, I let my geek flag fly just then.

Her life is more valuable than the baby because she has actually lived, has friends and family, possible a job or hobby, and is a contributor to society. It may sound harsh but that's life. But I do think you should save both.

Not to mention that, from a less humanistic approach and a more mechanical approach, a living woman capable of bearing more children (unless said children would threaten her life) is more beneficial to the survival of the species than a single child whose life caused the death of their mother and then has to wait 15 years to reach  sexual maturity.

It's funny because essentially the right-wing's "Blargh, women are only for babies, and the baby's life is more important than the mother's!" attitude is actually causing LESS births.

...Of course, I support birth control and pro-choice stuff entirely.  And do not desire the slightest bit to make a woman into a baby mill.  That's just horrible.

Not to mention that our species is quite capable of breeding itself out of survival rather than keeping survival.

Yeah, but then that gives overpopulation, which is bad. We should focus on sustainability instead of doing with the rabbits and insects do.

So, basically this is saying that only women benefit from tax-supported contraceptives as a form of preventative medicine... who exactly are these women having sex with if not men!?

Or is it simply that women should happily live in a paradoxical world where if they don't have sex they get raped, and if they do have sex they get pregnant, but they're still expected to be available to men, because men having sex is normal and necessary?

It's important to keep in mind that the religious right wing of the Republican is based on a religion where the idealized woman is the one who gets pregnant without having sex.

Use of birth control, including emergency contraceptives = Responsible family planning.
Self-esteem = Choosing to engage in or refrain from sex based on your personal beliefs and what you want in life, rather than what other people tell you.
Reputation = Only important if it's based upon traits that actually matter. Whether or not a woman enjoys sex shouldn't factor in to the amount of respect people show her.

And it's interesting how we don't see all that many cartoons talking about men taking responsibility when it comes to sex.

"Death Camp Orgy Girls on Acid" sounds like a great band name, and "Bloodbath of the Nursery School Rapist" sounds like a great movie. "Revenge of the Flamethrowing Vagina" should be its sequel.

"Revenge of the Atomic Flamethrowing Vagina" sounds fucking awesome.

I would not use the word 'fucking' while talking about a vagina which functions as a flamethrower.
Well maybe except for: "I am not fucking a flametrowing vagina!"

It's a trick question. The real "guy" is right behind you. Right now.

That being said, I hate Ron Paul and how his robots have crafted a cult of personality around this clown. He is not a libertarian, he's just fucking nuts. (And yes, there is a difference, believe it or not.)

I mean, it's not optimal. But it's at least moving in the right direction- non intervention, withdrawal, rollback, decolonisation.

Ron Paul would basically destroy all federal protections of civil liberties and focus on "states rights"  - a.k.a. "mob rule." He insists that all his positions are Constitutional, but then he not only supported the Defense of Marriage Act, but also introduced a bill that, if passed, would have made it illegal for the Supreme Court to hear cases pertaining to DoMA's legality. Gee, why would he ever need the second law if he's sooooo constitutional? ::)

He just doesn't care about the topic. He's a complete pothead so all he wants is for weed to be legalized.

He thinks there's a massive conspiracy in the media and "the establishment" going on against Ron Paul. Only an idiot like my father could honestly believe, at the same time
1) Ron Paul is the only person with any chances of becoming President
2) The eeeeeevil media is downplaying Ron Paul's importance so people won't vote for him

I love the idea of “Oh, we can free ourselves from these annoying checks and balances just by passing a law that says our other laws are immune from them.” I don’t think that is gonna fly.

To be fair, yeah Obama has created some jobs, but the economy is still in the toilet and unemployment is still high, so there are people losing as many jobs as there are jobs being made. But that's because Republicans would rather spend time going after women's vaginas than do something more productive like helping the economy get back on track, and help in creating jobs.

Every culture has experienced flooding. When an ancient culture's country or area expreriences a flood, they assume that the whole world floods, because the land they know of, is practically the world to them. There is no evidence outside of these myths that the entire world has flooded at one time.

Well, aside from the fact that you have provided exactly zero pieces of evidence disproving Evolution yet have claimed that it makes no sense:

How can all of these 'global' flood stories be about the same flood? Aside from the fact that they are radically different, if Noah's flood is true then only 8 people survived. Where did all these other flood stories come from if the main characters all died during Noah's flood?

Either Noah's flood was local and not a miracle, or all the other flood stories are talking about different local floods.

How is decent birth control coverage supposed to be a turnoff to a modern woman? Most use birth control in some form, so they can worry about other things like providing for their families and careers/jobs.

Ehhhh, one of the legit criticisms that can be made of Obama is that he's taking just as much if not more advantage of Bush's expansion of presidential powers and denial of due process as Bush did. Handy infographic from the ACLU available here (http://www.aclulibertywatch.org/ALWCandidateReportCard.pdf). Mind you, it is fairly hypocritical to bitch about Obama doing it but not Bush (especially if you argue Bush was different), its still a valid criticism and a definite failing he's had on constitutional issues.

That's my main problem, they turn a blind eye at what the Republicans are doing and have done the same in the past, though the guy has entitled the piece "One Nation Under Socialism" so I'm assuming guy is an idiot that thinks that Obama is a socialist, when in reality he's center-right.

City maintenance, public services, utilities, farm subsidies, etc aside;

Paying in taxes to provide basic needs for the lower class is probably a LOT cheaper than forcing businesses to pay their employees a fair wage. ;p  Big business NEEDS a large, undereducated, baby-making minimum-wage workforce to continue to churn out money.

How I Get My Paycheck:

1. Long ago, the world was born, be it a big bang, a god fucking a cow, whatever.
2. Eventually, humanity appeared.
3. Humanity began forming groups, or, societies.
4. Humanity began trading between these groups, often by walking long distances.
5. Someone came up with the wheel, to make the treks more bearable, and eventually they made carts to be pulled by animals.
6. Time passes, and despite constant attempts to destroy itself, humanity starts exploring the entire world, via boats and other means.
7. Eventually, the North American continent stabilizes itself as the "United States," and some territories some other places own. Citizens of the US don't care who owns what, as long as they can eventually take the land that they want.
8. Monetary systems are put into place, and the first types of "money" are put into the public sphere. No one alive today printed the first dollar.
9. Humanity invents the car, all while the state of "Wisconsin" is founded by Wisconsin Union 1848.
10. The beginning of a public education system is established.
11. The store known as Target is founded.
12. Somewhere in the middle of all of this, certain genetic triggers have been passed from generation to generation, resulting in the birth of my parents, and eventually, me.
13. I am allowed to attend public schools throughout my life, allowing me to earn enough of an education to graduate from a public university.
14. With my advanced degree, I eventually land a variety of jobs, but the only place I can safely earn full time pay is at a store known as Target.

15. A set amount of pay is agreed upon, in exchange for my services in handling work in the stock room.
16. Someone, somewhere builds the items that stock the Target shelves.
17. A truck driver drives the items to a distribution center, and then another driver from there to our store.
18. A team of workers puts said items on the shelves in the store.
19. A customer takes their money, and purchases one of our items, requiring another worker who is STILL not me to check them out.
20. After two weeks of more customers doing this, and me satisfactorily documenting our back-stock, I am given a pay check from Target.

In the grand scheme of things, the bolded section is all I have to do with the money I am given every two weeks. Meanwhile, the fact history passed the way it did, and the pure chance I was born, and the fact society feeds itself, is the main reason I have money. My hard work is only one part of a grander scheme. But I guess I'm just a liberal pansy who should be instead yelling "It's my money and I need it now!"

GOD! FUCKING! DAMN! It's no wonder so few people submit stuff to the main page anymore, they can't stand to look at this stuff long enough! Reading the thread out of curiosity is fucking painful, though one at least acknowledges the holocaust took place (but Hitler didn't do it, of course). The most I'll give them is that there are indeed asshole's who are Jewish and managed to intertwine the two traits, as a few main page posts show. Are some people that use the Holocaust as an excuse to do whatever they want? Yes there are, but they are by no means the majority. There certainly isn't any "conspiracy".

Oh, Palin's been called just about every bad name you can call a woman at some point or another. Never by anyone as prominent or influential as Rush Limbaugh though.

Incidentally, do social conservatives seriously have no concept of how birth control works? I mean seriously, the first time I was ever educated about the pill was when I saw a girl taking hers on the bus in my sophomore year of high school. I asked her politely about it and her explanation included the phrase "have to take it every day, around the same time". Heck, there are even commercials for competing forms of Birth Control that mention it!

The cartoon is on the verge of a salient point - Trayvon was a teenage boy, meaning he more than likely has at least some negative points. Where the cartoon goes wrong, of course, is that it shouldn't matter if Trayvon Martin was a sinless, perfect specimen of humanity or a jerk who got straight D's and acted up in class - all that should matter is what he was doing when he got shot.

Plus, cases of parents being arrested for taking pics of their kids in the bath really aren't as common as the media would have you believe. Almost every parent has at least one picture of their child(ren) bathing -- many of whom are now posting those images on sites like Facebook -- and very few have been arrested or hassled over it. Hell, my baby album has tons of images of me in all my naked glory, including a couple where my crotch is at least partially visible.

Side note: It would be whack if someone came along and charged me with possession of child porn over my own baby pictures.

Thing is, almost anything can be viewed as pornographic if you look at it the right (or wrong) way. It's also very difficult to legally define what is and isn't pornography. I mean, there's the whole "intent to elicit arousal" line, but like you said, it's quite hard to prove someone's intentions when we get into that weird, grey area between pornography and non-erotic nude photography.

To be honest, I can understand why some people might worry about the wrong kinds of people getting a hold of those pictures and trading/selling them for the purpose of arousal, thus violating the child's right to privacy, but in those cases, it's the sick fucks who steal and misuse the photos who should be prosecuted, not the parents who innocently took a picture of their baby's first bath.

The thing is you can be arrested for your baby pictures and charged with several felonies. It would be treated the same as a 16 year old sending naked pictures of themselves to their boy/girlfriend. It's bullshit, but that is how the law can be interpreted.

How can you be arrested for your own baby pictures though? At least with sexting, the kid's taking pictures of herself. Parents are the ones who take baby pictures. They shouldn't get in trouble for that, of course, but if anyone's going to be prosecuted, it should be the person who took the picture. But parents shouldn't be prosecuted for their kids pictures in the first place, unless the intent is obviously nefarious.

Well, some of it has to do with the question of "Is this an established character from a show"? Bart Simpson screwing some girl isn't easy to call anything besides child porn, but outside of that it would depend on the creator of the character, I imagine.

I've accidentally come across that kind of cartoon porn on Google Images. Not exactly pleased about that, being that I don't particularly want to see it, and it's very illegal (meaning that there's tons of legal precedent supporting the law) to download cartoon depictions of child porn where I live. Not that I'd expect the police to come kicking down my door over a couple of images cached during an image search gone horribly wrong, but it does act as a minor paranoia worm when it happens.

As for my baby pictures, I'm not terribly concerned about being charged for having them. Sure, it's possible that some raving lunatic will look through my photo albums and flip shit over the bathtub images, but it's not very likely for a whole host of reasons.

I once saw a cartoon with Bart getting a blow job from Maggie, with Marge freaking out off to the side. I remember the dialogue, and my own reaction:

Marge: BART?!
Bart: Don't worry, Mom. Maggie lost her pacifier. (grin)

They count Libya as a war even though it was planned out far better than Afghanistan or Iraq, had international support, and cost no American lives all at a fraction of the cost of the first two.

Well, I'm sure that doesn't help, but Americans tend to be very short sighted and look for a singular cause (the President) to their problems. Its these expectations that result in the office of the Presidency being given so much power (the most important according to Richard Neustadt being the power to persuade and be a middle-man between various agencies, governments, and organizations) and Reagan's famous slogan "are things better now than four years ago." This short sightedness in blaming the President is widespread and even members of this fairly intelligent board (I will only speak in particular for myself) fall into this trap.

I kind of wonder what would happen if, like the legislative and judicial branches, the executive branch was actually headed by a group rather than a single individual. I’m sure people would find some way to fall into the trap like usual. It is, after all, a result of human nature that we do so to begin with. But one would think that falling in would be more difficult in such a situation. Might force a few people to actually… *gasp!*… think!
Title: Re: Worst Political Cartoons
Post by: QueenofHearts on March 31, 2012, 08:54:28 am
I've thought that too, and I think the answer would be it depends on how the executive branch would be elected (with one representative per district or a group of people nationally elected). If the people would be elected nationally, it would probably be like it is now (where if things are better they get re-elected) whereas if it were local representation it would be much like Congress. Despite Congress polling  at something like 9% popularity, Congressmen and women laugh because those polls don't matter. Which matters, is how popular congresspeople are within their districts. My professor on Congressional and Presidential rhetoric said it best "Congress is nothing but a bunch of Washington-insiders and criminals. They should all be arrested! Except for my congressman, he's one of the good ones." This is the reason why despite such low popularity, incumbency is so high. So, if the executives were locally elected, I see it being much like this. I may be wrong (of course) but this is my take on it.

EDIT: And that's another thing that is unique to the President in America, they are the only person elected nationally, by every state. This could also play into the expectations of the presidency where people expect the President to make things good in general (economy, gas prices, unemployment), whereas representatives just have to "bring home the bacon" which is considerably easier a task.

It does, in a certain context, because it makes him look like a stupid teenager who cares about looking tough. A clean cut straight-A student comes off a whole lot differently (in public perception, however unfair this is) than a teenager who's trying to be "gangsta". Mind you, the person who found it never considered there was more than Trayvon Martin in the country, so it's of a totally different person, but the intent was there.

The Shane that is typing this right now was pretty gangstah himself back in middle school cause it was the in-thing. Eminem was big during that time, so...

If I gave the impression I agree with what they're doing, I apologize. That's simply the tactic they're using. Make Trayvon look like a future scary black man, play upon racist tendencies (both subconscious and otherwise), try to create the image that he's more The Wire than The Cosby Show, etc. Even if the picture was of the correct Trayvon Martin, it would still be nothing more than using some of American culture's lingering racism in order to create a smokescreen that obscures the relevant facts of the case.

While I get your point, isn't this the kind of mindset that makes it harder for male victims of domestic violence to be taken seriously? Completely different context, of course, but focusing on physical size as the measure of a threat when it isn't exactly that simple.

As a native Detroiter, it is nowhere near that simple (otherwise the suburbs would have fallen at the same time, rather than expanding). Racism and short sighted policy caused a lot of the problems that economic woes befalling the auto industry exacerbated.

No as you said completely different context. Besides which size is a good indicator of threat but not of abuse. Just because someone is stronger doesn't mean they can stop their spouse abusing them. Its also got to do with what you're prepared to do. In this case given Zimmerman was prepared to shoot the kid and chased after him I think he probably wouldn't have had a problem punching him. 

Treyvonn was not, Mike "I'll fuck you till you love me, faggot" Tyson. He was a skinny little teenager who was substantially physically smaller than zimmerman.

I can only imagine how well that would go.

Immediately upon hearing the first shot several vigilantes pull their guns and go after the perpetrators. Nobody knows who the shooters are or where they are, so the vigilantes mistakenly attack each other. The situation turns into a shoot out between several people, innocents are caught in the cross-fire. The police enter and neutralise everybody with a gun. The end.

I don't get it. If unarmed schools are such prime targets for gun violence and 'only outlaws have guns' , then why have there been roughly the same amount of school shootings in Europe over the last 100 years as in an average American decade?
Title: Re: Worst Political Cartoons
Post by: RavynousHunter on April 04, 2012, 04:32:26 pm
Because controlling the influx of weapons, legal and illegal, in European countries is much easier than it is in the US.  The smaller a country is, the easier it is to control the flow of firearms; you have less area to patrol, your borders are smaller, and there's a greater overall level of population density

 Logistically speaking, controlling guns in the US like they do in Britain would require ludicrous amounts of manpower and massive government expenditure, its practically impossible.  We have a massive amount of land, plenty of backwood, out-of-the-way places where gun runners can hide themselves and their caches of illicit weaponry, and our borders cover thousands of miles, at the very least.  There are numerous points of entry, and lots of places to hide, so trying to prevent anyone from getting guns in the US is simply impractical.

So, instead of trying to do something that'd likely mean massive tax hikes (which would piss people off REALLY bad) to cover a very impractical set of laws, they, instead institute a policy of background checks and waiting periods.  Does that eliminate gun violence?  No.  Does it mean criminals won't get guns?  No.  Criminals don't obey the laws for rape, murder, and theft...why would they obey gun control laws?  PROTIP: They don't.  They never do.  Anyone who wants a gun can get one...so, the question is, do we spend massive amounts of time and money in a futile attempt at an impractical measure to control illegal arms, or do we institute policies that help weed out dangerous people from legally purchasing arms, while allowing decent citizens to procure them for sport or self defense?

Take a look at the war on drugs.  Its almost the exact same thing: they're trying, desperately, to control the flow of drugs into the country, spending massive amounts of time, money, and effort in an attempt to weed out any and all illicit medicine.  Are they succeeding?  ...So very little, its practically unnoticeable.  Instead, we have a significant portion of our prisons dedicated to non-violent criminals, we make criminals out of otherwise decent people, and we force the money that goes into purchasing these things, which is almost laughably easy if you ask the right people, into the hands of much more dangerous criminals and drug cartels.  Its a logistical nightmare, but the government continues spending millions of dollars in this futile endeavor because of the pressure put on by holier-than-thou assholes.

We've already got one pointless "war."  I doubt we could afford another, even if such a stringent crackdown wouldn't end up a legal nightmare.

I have no problem with guns being allowed in schools, and such, it's just that if such an incident occurs there is sure to be a lot of chaos, and it's most likely that shooter isn't going to be shot back at.

The comic has a point, IMO. The shootings would not have gone on as long, and more deaths could have been prevented, if an adult certified with the use of a firearm saw the shooter and fired to defend other people. The fact is that a lot of these school shootings happen in gun-free zones, so clearly simply putting a smiley sign up doesn't do shit to stop a psychopath who wants to murder their classmates. I'm not talking about letting any brat who finds a pistol in the backseat of his parent's car bring it to school, but if a teacher or other adult faculty member is certified and trained in the use of a firearm, there's no reason why he or she shouldn't be allowed to use it to protect other students in the event of a hostile intruder.

I think the challenge with that strategy then is how to secure the gun from students while allowing the certified teacher easy access in case of emergency. And I think if the teacher carried the gun on his or her person, would-be shooters would then know who is certified and who isn’t, and preemptively target the certified teachers first.

As far as I can tell, the school shootings that occur here in Canada -- which are, for the record, much rarer than they are in the US, even if one accounts for population differences -- aren't any bloodier than the ones down south despite our much stricter gun control, which suggests to me that teachers and other faculty not having guns really isn't the problem here.

Plus, the risks of having armed weapons around kids far, FAR outweigh the potential benefits of having a firearm during a school shooting, being that these kinds of tragic events are not anywhere near as common as people seem to think. The chance of an accident occurring (kid gets a hold of gun and accidentally harms him/herself, teacher does something idiotic despite being licensed and trained in using firearms, etc.) is a hell of a lot higher than some nut turning up and opening fire.

That's what I meant to say, that I have no problem with an adult who has training and all that jazz with a firearm, being allowed to carry a firearm in the place, where ever it might be, I just think a situation may be that there in so much chaos, that they may panic, be overwhelmed to the point and not know what to do, or they would have to wait until the right moment, if that ever comes to them.

They could always keep the gun on themselves, but are dumb as a box of rocks if they don't have the safety on.

I don't think teachers should be forced to carry guns. Only teachers who want to carry guns, are qualified to do so, and pass safety tests should be able to bring guns to school. Obviously that involves keeping the gun in a secure location where students cannot reach it.

My problem with the gun argument in general is that it's a red herring. The problem isn't necessarily the lack of gun or the over abundance of guns (though they may contribute to the problems.) The problem is deeper and more rooted society and how people are treated (affecting how they react).

Dad has often told me that even if he were to have a gun on his person while teaching, that doesn't guarantee that there'd be less of a bloodbath. Based on a variety of factors.

After all, in a few of the shootings in the past couple of decades the teachers have either been shot first or shot early, thus preventing them from reacting to anything even if they had a gun themselves.

Also, the Arizona shooting (Giffords) was stopped not by another gun, but 1) a man with a folding chair and 2) a retired Colonel who just tackled him. So, further argument that another gun owned by a trained and licensed teacher would not put a stop to more killings.

"I have seen no evidence to support this conclusion" does not mean "I have to literally see something to believe in it". We can measure the non-visible portions of the spectrum and see its influence on the world around us, which is more than I can say for god.

Yeah, it's called history for a reason, and political parties change over time. Shit, even the GOP of the 1950s & 1960s were sane compared to the GOP of today (you know, like how Eisenhower looks like what today's GOP would call a "socialist", even Barry Goldwater of all people, looks somewhat sane compared to today's GOP, and he was more or less a 1960s version of a teabagger).

And about 90 years after Republicans were electing the first black congresspeople, a Democrat senator introduced the Civil Rights Act and a Democrat president signed it. You can't discount the historical achievements of the Republican party, nor can you ignore the historical failings of the Democrats (and vice versa). However, the modern party taking credit for them is kind of like a person taking credit for the actions of an ancestor.

Feels the need to refute.

California failed because of lax business regulation, dangerously low taxes, too little government infrastructure spending and a corrupt financial, housing and tech sector. Not because of the opposite.

Japan was ruined by conservatives failing to respond to their economic crisis for fifteen years, not their trains.

Greece was ruined by an obsession with short-term debts over long-term economic growth, the German beggar-thy-neighbour policy backed by an incompetent German ECB and an inappropriate monetary union. Leading to a failure to use monetary or fiscal policy.

The Soviet Union had a government that acted in demonstrably different ways than the US government under Obama. Sure, that was inefficient, which is why nobody does that any more. But free-market fundamentalism is actually more inefficient, as shown by the Russian Federation.

Again, Spain was ruined by the ECB, monetary union, short-term debt obsession, ect. Not solar panels (which are made in Germany).

England was ruined by the austerity program of their conservative government, austerity pursued despite a lack of need and in the face of massive costs- a policy that, to the extent that it was avoided in the US, was dodged over the violent objections of the Republican party. Britain's efficient health insurance program did not force international conservatism to institute wasteful, hugely costly austerity.

...Japan and the United States require vastly different infrastructure. Like, we require a lot of it to move shit around. I don't exactly what that cartoon is (probably erroneously) referring to, but I imagine that if the U.S. had something like the Japanese "bullet trains", they'd be profitable. For instance, if there was top of the line high speed rail linking Detroit and Chicago, you go could from the Motor City to the Windy City in just about the amount of time it takes to drive from Detroit to the state capitol. There has to be a market for that, assuming it's even moderately affordable.

Indeed. The whole thing is apples and oranges. Even if the items called out in that cartoon are what damaged those economies, that doesn’t mean those items were inherently bad. It steams me to no end that so many good political and economic ideas out there are declared poison just because the very first try failed. It’s not always the idea. More often than not, it is the implementation.

Britain's efficient health insurance program did not force international conservatism to institute wasteful, hugely costly austerity.

One of the ironies of the cartoon is that the UK government recently passed what is most likely the most reviled bill in years on the NHS. Public support was around 18% (http://conservativehome.blogs.com/thetorydiary/2012/02/cameron-vows-to-press-on-with-nhs-bill-although-only-18-of-public-support-it.html), rumours were floating of Cabinet ministers being secretly opposed to it, and Tim Montgomerie, one of the most influential non-Parliamentery Conservatives in the UK, suggested that the short-term political cost of dropping the bill would be much better than the long-term political cost of passing it (http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2012/feb/10/cameron-scrap-nhs-bill-lansley).

The chief complaint? Accusations of privatisation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_and_Social_Care_Act_2012#.22Any_willing_provider.22).

In fairness, that 47 billion against trillions of dollars of budget and debt. It's still short sighted, since every bit helps, but if I do my estimation correctly that would be like a regular person making $47 to pay toward a debt/budget in the five to six figure range.

Yes, it's a rage comic but it's a comic in support of a real event. "Fuck-A-Friend Zone: The 2012 movement."

What. The. Fuck.
O_o

Dude.

Wait...

Wait...

No it still looks like the comic advocates rape. Fuck you unknown troll lurking somewhere deep in the internet.

All this whining about "friendzone" is really annoying but talking about it would turn into a long rant. So here have a bad political cartoon instead:

"friendzone"


for all men pissed about being in the friendzone.
ive been seeing tons of whining all over the internet.

men get friendzoned because they're behaving like a friend, not a potential b/f. if you can't tell the difference, you might not be mature enough to handle a relationship.

i dont know, ive been single for a few years now, ive been friendzoned alot, no one to blame but myself.

The fascists had an interesting view of the economy. Everything needed to be 'harmonized' in order to avoid class war, so labour, big business and the government would get together and negotiate a deal. They called it the 'third way'*. In practice, the unions got banned or taken over by the businesses they were supposed to regulate, and the government development agencies were corrupted as well.

*Bill Clinton was a plagiarist.

ARGH. *rage mode!* Nazi Germany was not. bloody. socialist! The Nazi Party was primarily a party of the petty-bourgeois class (as opposed to the working class), and in power it was a pretty capitalist system, it didn't majorly change the economic layout. They abolished the bloody union attached to the party for one.

Free-market capitalism has lifted more people out of poverty than any other system in the history of man. The problem with our country today is we no longer have free-market capitalism.

If you think America is not free market capitalist, you need walloping. Honestly. (Though of course what is or isn't a free market is a political definition rather than an objective one - it's more like a scale with "more free market" at one end and "less free market" at another).

While it's true that capitalism has created the wealth that makes us able to get rid of poverty, left to its own devices it doesn't exactly do this. I mean, if the government legislates that people who are unemployed should get a basic payout to prevent them from starving, that is not caused by capitalism per se (even if capitalism is a necessary condition for it) it's caused by the government offsetting the worst of the system.

I mean there wasn't any poverty in laissez-faire nineteenth century England![/sarcasm]

This.

A fully free market, as most people would use the term, won’t stay that way for very long, because there will always be someone who profits best by removing the freedom of others. In this way, a free market naturally collapses in on itself. And that is a pretty big fuckin’ flaw.

I actually know a guy who served in the army but said that his religious beliefs would not allow him to fight in a war. Because of the conscription system in Finland and the fact that civilian service (362 days.) and the unarmed service (Basically, you serve in the military but do not carry a weapon and you get assigned to a position where a firearm is not necessary. Lasts 270 days.) lasts longer than the shortest military service (Depending on the training 180-362 days.) he felt that this was the easiest way to get it over.

Besides he did say that he doubts God has anything against him shooting at cardboard targets and running in the woods.

Also according to Finnish law in case of war he can refuse to carry a weapon and he will get the same treatment as those who did unarmed service.

They're saying that Natives who protests appropriation of their culture are just "jealous". They're also denigrating their social condition (which is ironic since the ancestors of the poster makers are probably responsible for that.)

Huh. Should've called that one in February (http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2012/feb/14/crony-capitalist-auto-bailout-mitt-romney).

Actually, when you look at Romney's campaign, you find:

1. you can determine Romney's policy on an issue at a given moment, or how the policy is changing, but not both at the same time.
2. the probability of Romney having a position is never quite 100%, but never 0% either.
3. when Obama adopts a certain policy position, Romney, without having to communicate or interact, will adopt the exact opposite policy position.
4. sometimes a pair of Romney policies appear, cancel each other out, and disappear again.
5. it is impossible to accurately reason whether Romney is for or against a given issue until you have observed his statements on the matter; until then, you must assume that he is both for and against the issue.

It's not communism. It's not even capitalism. It might not be something that classic political science understands.

Try even earlier than that:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3PJF0YE-x4

However, as has been said previously, the idea of "good" black folks has been around for a long time. "Credits to their race" I believe they were called. Notably, Chris Rock cut this material from his act in part because he felt it was giving racists justification for using the n-word. I agree with people like Chris Rock, Aaron McGruder, the late Dwayne McDuffie, and Bill Cosby when they say that  that the all too vocal segments of the black community holding up ignorance and criminal behavior as being "real" or "sticking it to the man" need to shut the fuck up because all they're doing is holding back the black community and American society as a whole. Appropriating racist terminology to draw the distinction is, while possibly an effective shaming tool and somewhat effective, ain't the way to draw that distinction. Especially if you're white.

Putting aside the Lando reference...  doesn't Lil Wayne make MORE money then De GRasse tyson?  So according to the Free MArket, the guy on the right is more successful.

Well, that's assuming the maker of this picture is a free market capitalist.

But how often does that assumption pan out?

Sandra Fluke. 

She had spoken out about the cost of 'contraceptives' - by which she meant pharmaceutical birth control - for college students, who pay out the same amount whether they have sex a hundred times a month or once, or use the medication to control hormonal dysfunctions and other medical problems.  And on behalf of another student who had wound up losing her ovaries (one or both, not sure) to cysts because she couldn't afford the medication to treat it, as it was considered 'birth control' and not covered by the college's health coverage.

So Rush Airbag grabbed the quote about 'contraceptives' costing up to $500 a month and twisted it into an explicit accusation that Sandra personally uses $500 worth of CONDOMS a month and wants the US taxpayers to pay her to have sex all day, making her a busy hooker.

Conservative logic: Sure, Rush Limbaugh thinks women shouldn't be allowed to get contraceptives, blames women for being 'irresponsible' when they refuse to follow the doctrine of the Catholic Church, calls them 'sluts' when they disagree with him in public, constantly criticises women he doesn't like as ugly and so on... BUT THAT'S FREEDOM!

I don't remember him ever mentioning condoms. I think he is just ignorant of how birth control works (that it's a pill you take all the time). He also completely ignored the fact that birth control pills is often used for reasons other than birth control. There are people who are abstinent and take birth control pills.

I hate those people who just think that if we "liberalise the market" it will magically solve all of our problems. The truth is the poor if they weren't able to get government aid would just end up relying on the whims of the rich through private charity, a sort of Neo Victorianism.

There is a reason that corporations are trying to reduce government spending, not increase it. Welfare is more a tool of the poor than the market, because corporations cannot absolutely dominate a government in a democracy.

Yup. The most important of these is probably the Flood, which killed, you know, everyone.

Wait... if your religion is an unchangeable state of being, then why do Christians spend so much effort trying to convert people?  And does she realize that interfaith marriages were illegal up until the last century?

*ahem*
1. Having dark skin is a phenotype that is expressed from birth and has a biological cause, so black people are indeed "born that way." While non-heterosexuality is not caused by genes, it does have a clear prenatal biological cause, so it is entirely accurate to say that queer people are also "born that way."
     a. Even among black people, some black people have darker or lighter skin than others. Skin color is controlled by multiple genes, and even after that, environmental factors can influence skin color. It is variable and it can change.
2. Homosexuality is not a "mindset" and it is not a "mood." For instance, you are still straight even when you are not thinking about sex or sexual attraction.
     a. "No one is born sexual" - Freud would disagree.
     b. Bisexuality is not the ability to choose your sexual orientation. It is a sexual orientation in and of itself in that one is attracted to both the same and the opposite sex.
     c. Sexuality in some people is fluid - I can definitely say that there are times I am more attracted to the same sex and other times when I am more attracted to the opposite sex. But I do not "choose" any of those changes, they simply happen.
3. You were born with dark skin and with a female body and a female mind. That is unchangeable. But a person is not a Christian from birth. I'm pretty sure salvation isn't hereditary in your religion. A person born to Christian parents can still be raised by a family of another faith and consider themselves to be of that faith. Heck, even in Judaism, where "Jewishness" is hereditary, a person could be born to a Jewish mother (thus qualifying them as a Jew) but raised in another faith and come to identify with that faith.
4. Whether or not homosexuality is a choice has no bearing on whether same-sex marriages should be legal or not.

Holy balls, that is the creepiest-looking fetus EVER.  If I weren't already pro-choice, that picture would make me pro-choice all by itself.  Hel, I'm surprised that picture doesn't make me want to go up to pregnant women yelling, "KILL IT!  KILL IT NOW BEFORE IT DEVOURS YOUR SOUL!!"

Also, nail files!  In the uterus!  Now I'm picturing a botched abortion with a nail file, and the fetus using it because it's just THAT badass.  And evil.

If anyone says that to my face, they'll be getting a fucking earful from me.

I was devout.  I believed it with all of my heart.  Everything I did was for God, not for any reward, but because it was the Right Thing (tm) to do.  What killed my faith was the constant backstabbing from the Christian leaders.  The people who were supposed to be guiding me to the right path.  My emotions were being sucked out of me like soda through a straw.  And I turned to God for solace... and he wasn't there.  He was never there.  I prayed to him every night.  I pondered "His Wisdom" and meditated on it.  And he was never there.  The only one ever there for me was myself and my family and what few friends I had.

And for a couple of years after that, I continued to believe anyways until I just couldn't anymore.

We searched for churches that had the "right doctrine", and still only darkness came... and we left good churches because of doctrine issues.

...Sorry, apparently that was a trigger for me.  Thanks for letting me get that out.

Ouch, sorry if I pressed the wrong button  :(

I was just going for some overly pious spiel a fundy would give you. I didn't mean to offend  :'(

Though I went through a similar phase. I was really into Christianity and it wasn't until I was 14 that I began to question it. To start off, a friend of mine died of cancer despite the fact I prayed multiple times a day to save her, God didn't listen. Second, my church at the time decided to go on a bender against gays that made me realize that who I was couldn't be reconciled with mainstream Christianity (as gay marriage at the time was a wedge issue that propelled Bush to a second term and VA churches were trying to pressure the General assembly for a constitutional ban which they got less than two years later). So I began a cutting phase which lasted about a year until I began drinking and drug abuse; which was a really self-destructive phase that didn't end until I began transitioning last year.

So, even though if someone said something like that to me I wouldn't be too offended, I can understand how that could be a horrible thing to say :(

Well then you've not heard many proper definitions. From Miriam-Webster (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/sodomy):
Quote
Definition of SODOMY
: anal or oral copulation with a member of the same or opposite sex; also : copulation with an animal

And from Wikipedia  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodomy)(emphasis mine):
Quote
Sodomy (/ˈsɒdəmi/) refers to anal sex or other non-penile/vaginal copulation-like acts, especially between male persons or between a person and an animal.[

And U.S. Legal dot com (http://definitions.uslegal.com/s/sodomy/):
Quote
Sodomy laws generally criminalize oral or anal sex, between consenting adults even in the privacy of their homes

1. I'm like 99% sure that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms. In fact, I think they do more mammograms than abortions.

2. Birth control pills cause cancer? Citation fucking needed.

As for the whole "abortion causes breast cancer" thing - as typical of pro-lifers, they're not telling the complete truth. There are studies suggesting that having a child before a certain age (I think it's like mid-30s or something) can reduce your risk of breast cancer in the future. However, having an abortion simply terminates the pregnancy. It does not increase your risk of breast cancer, it just cancels any potential benefit that carrying the fetus to term would have brought - that is, it leaves you at the same risk you had before. In other words, abortions do jack shit to one's chances of getting breast cancer.

Because fluorescent lightbulbs actually flicker on and off super fast, they will give everyone epilepsy, and Big Pharma will make money by selling epilepsy medication to those people.

MY COMMENTS ON THIS STUPID TOON:
* "A man & a woman's body..." not "A man & a woman...." as if she weren't a human, just a body to hump.
* So does having sex make you married? By that definition, the above-mentioned adultery would be bigamy/polygamy. If sex is basically an impromptu wedding....WOW LOVERS CAN SAVE MONEY!!!
* Why can't you be loyal to the person you're eating/analing? Heteros & married couples do that all the time!
* In trying to answer the normal sane argument concerning infertile/elderly couples, their argument & one big meaningless fail that convinces nobody with a working brain.

*ahem* My extensive research and experience with conspiracy theories will allow me to decipher this for you.

Bill Gates was the founder of the computer company Microsoft, so he is represented by a robot. More specifically, a Terminator robot, which is an assassin. This is meant to draw a connection between Bill Gates and a cold-blooded, murderous nature.

In one hand, Gates is carrying a massive gun that is fashioned to look like a vaccine. This is an obvious reference to anti-vaxxer conspiracy theories. A part of Gates' philanthropic efforts involve sending vaccines to third-world countries. Considering that the comic claims Gates is a proponent of reducing the world population, and that anti-vaxxers consider vaccines to cause a host of symptoms from autism to sterility, the implication is that Bill Gates' foundation is sending vaccines to third-world countries in order to make them infertile and reduce the world population, all according to the Big Pharma eugenicist agenda (as shown by the big "MERCK" letters on the syringe).

The device in his other hand is probably some sort of scanner or taser. It could be a reference to the pat-downs and X-ray screens at TSA checkpoints, which have been accused of being a government conspiracy to humiliate citizens and give them cancer and sterilize them at the same time. Also note that the device is situated directly on the helpless man's testicular area, which also shows that whatever it is it is being used to sterilize him with its "radiation" or "electromagnetic fields."

I take Prozac & it's helped me & they're just regular capsules, rather than pointy bullet-shaped things.

I think the anti-meds/vaccines crowd are going batzoid crazy overboard! I admit, I think we're OVER-medicated but meds are NOT the problem, excessive unneeded prescriptions is. I'm a Complimentary-Medicine person (Holistic/Natural & Alopathic combined), myself but these conspiracy people are pure psycho! I need my Prozac! Sometimes you need meds!

Kind of unrelated, but why did everyone suddenly stop caring about the Occupy movement? It seemed to be doing something. I haven't heard anything about it in quite a while.

The media realized that we are a trivial society and stopped reporting on it. Then they started reporting on other stupid things and society just forgot...

Don't worry. This is where the Internet comes in. The Web has been a great tool of Independent media & getting the news around. "THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED", as the saying goes. OCCUPY is still going strong....Just don't count on the mainstream news outlets on TV & Radio to report it (since they're owned & run by the 1% Robber Barons).

If he was trying to portray those as bad things, he forgot one of the rules of propaganda... don't make things you oppose look pleasant.  Because right now, even knowing his stance, the only thing I can actually see that looks at all what he's trying to convey is the "Nuns in pants" sorta thing.

Everything else looks too happy or too neutral to be the evil he's trying to convey.

You can't invite the wolves in, make them feel at home, wink at their same-sex affliction, and then be shocked that they actually want to be treated no differently than straight people. Of course they're going to damn-near riot and threaten violence when they're "denied" the right to marry. Of course they're going to flip their pink-glitter covered lids when someone points out they're not "normal". Of course they're going to toss their Birkenstocks when someone says that "two mommies" might as well be "two wildebeests" raising a child.

So asking to be treated like a human being is the same as devouring someone. Okey dokey!

Most of the time sports are just, well, sports. Other times, as with Tim Tebow, it's a barometer of the culture. Ask a person how they feel about Tim Tebow and it will tell you alot about where they stand on many other issues. Those who like Tebow probably are sympathetic to the Christian faith, even if they're not necessarily church-goers. Additionally, they would probably agree that Hollywood is a cesspool and embrace traditional American values. Those who hate Tebow are more likely to resent traditional American values and probably embrace the creeping socialism of the Obama administration.



Let's have a quick snapshot:


Like Tebow? Abortion stops a beating heart.

Hate Tebow? Pro-choice all the way, baby!



Like Tebow? Wouldn't watch Bravo TV on a bet.

Hate Tebow? Think same-sex relations are ok!



Like Tebow? Proudly fly that American Flag!

Hate Tebow? Burning the flag is awesome!



Like Tebow? Sundays usually involve Church.

Hate Tebow? Sundays are for reading the NY Times.



Like Tebow? Obama is a communist.

Hate Tebow? MSNBC is your cup of de-caf coffee!

The problem with that poster is that pretty much everything that is not catered towards a minority caters towards the majority instead.

One channel may be devoted to LGBT stuff, one channel may be devoted to racial minorities, but all of the other channels are devoted to the dominant majority, which is the white, anglo-saxon, protestant males.

There is a dating site dedicated overwhelmingly to whites. It's called "E Harmony." If you want one that actually prohibits blacks, there is once called Searchpartner.com. Careful, though, if you follow the ownership of the site back far enough you eventually get to Stormfront. But that's probably what that guy wanted anyway.

There is a month dedicated to whites. In fact there are 11 of them.

There is a magazine dedicated to whites. It's called "Cosmo." There's another one called "People." And one called "Us Weekly." Hell, most of the newsstand is dedicated to white people, and if you see a black person in there, I guarantee that black person is going to look like a white person who just happens to have dark skin. But if you really want a racist magazine, try "American Renaissance ."

There are many television channels geared towards race. CBS. NBC. ABC. FOX NEWS. Television is a business, and you make money in a business by marketing towards the largest, wealthiest demographic you can. In America, that means white people. (At least for now. Soon it will mean brown people.) Why else do you think that rap and hip hop music are all primarily marketed towards white males now?

Clothing line. Geared towards whites? Start with Izod and keep going until you pass Abercrombie and Fitch (after pausing to admire their amazingly homoerotic ads) and eventually get to Brooks Brothers. Then look back and count the thousands of clothing lines marketed almost exclusively towards whites that you passed. (Many of which can be purchased at your local JC Penny or Saks. And don't worry, all of the black people in their ads look just like dark skinned whites and are all smiling.)

Scholarship funds for specific race....I got a scholarship for being Scottish. I'm pretty sure that's white.

I think that's the point. Mel Gibson and co. are ultraconservative to the point that they reject the church's teachings (ironic because Catholicism explicitly says you have to follow what the church says, and if you don't, you're not a true Catholic).

Can someone explain to me why they're saying these things are bad?

Communion in the hand: It's considered degrading to the Host. It's not as personal and "coming directly from God" as kneeling and receiving it on the tongue is.

Nuns in pants: Not following traditional gender roles or wearing habits.

Guitars: Not organ music, more modern. HIPPIES.

Altar girls: Obviously allowing women to participate in the service is bad.

Hippies: Clearly hippies are all Wiccan or atheist. Or something. I'm not entirely sure.

Felt banners: Trivial and childish? Google tells me that they are something you make in CCD. I never did, so I don't know what they're referencing.

I'm pretty sure most people alive today weren't aborted, and therefore couldn't have survived something that didn't happen.

Just wondering, how do things "geared" towards blacks advertised? Do they actually have "black" or "African" in their title, or do they just show pictures of black people?

Some do.  Like United Negro College Fund, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Black Entertainment Television.  That's all that comes immediately to mind, though.

For the dating site mentioned, there's Black People Meet.com, and for magzines there's Ebony and Jet. The latter of which was originally billed as "The Weekly Negro News Magazine", according to Wikipedia.

You mean black main character. There were plenty of extras in the Mombasa scenes. Also, when you consider Saito and Yusuf, the core cast (i.e. the team doing the eponymous inception) is 67% white (71% counting Fischer), which is roughly accurate for modern America. The real problem with Inception lies in its 83%/86% male cast (I can't recall seeing any Kenyan women in the film), along with Nolan's possible issues with fridge-stuffing (http://web.archive.org/web/20101015014835/http://www.overthinkingit.com/2010/07/29/christopher-nolan-feminism/).

Christopher Nolan is (largely) fine when it comes to race relations, as opposed to George Lucas (the Star Wars prequels) and Michael Bay (pretty much everything). But of course, these are shit films for so many other reasons.

My family has not one black member. I guess that makes us racist, too.

Do you choose the composition of your family?

Absolutely. Every single person chose freely who to marry, and so far every single person has chosen to marry either white European or mixed-Hispanic partners. Bear in mind that not a single person made their decision to marry or not marry someone based on their race, but that doesn't change the fact that we're all white (with a sprinkling of light-brown in my Uncle Sean's line).

"Inception" had no black actors in major roles because none of the major characters were black. This happens, especially in Hollywood films where the stories are set primarily in the United States, which (according to the 2010 census) is 72% white and only 12% black. I find it far more invasive when a film insists on inserting a token black character just so they can have one.

(And never mind the fact that the old cliche of the one black guy in a movie getting killed first just happens to be true a Hell of a lot of the time. For examples see "Heat," "Red," "Aliens," "Mindhunters," "The Island," "Halloween: Resurrection," "Full Metal Jacket," "Gremlins," "Night of the Demons," "Stargate," "Star Trek II," "Resident Evil, Extinction," "Virus," "The Edge," "The Crow," "Queen of the Damned," "Alien Nation," "Red Dawn," "Hulk," "Hollow Man," "The Langoliers," "American Psycho," "Fantastic Four 2," "Wing Commander," "Stealth," "Dungeons & Dragons," (ow. It hurt to even acknowledge that film exists) "Christine," "Super 8," "X-Men First Class," "Aliens v. Predator: Requiem," and many, many, many more.)

"Virus,"

virus starring jamie lee curtis? the first dead main character in that was cuban. the black guy in virus survived til the end (when he provided the 2 white leads who had fallen in love for some reason with an escape pod and died... which is almost worse)

I think they lampshaded that in Alienators when a black guy was asked to go out alone and he replies the black dude dies first

I thought that the drill Sargent was the first one to die in Full Metal Jacket. It's kind of appropriate since he was a very enlightened and egalitarian character "There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on niggers, kikes, wops or greasers. Here you are all equally worthless."

Or really racist. Note how all the flags under "Earth" are primarily African/Mideast nations, while "Mars" is European/American.

You're family may work differently.

How many of your family members did you audition before you hired them to be blood kin?

yes I know, you're family chooses who to marry (assuming they aren't gay).

However are they choosing someone they think is compatible and want to spend the rest of their life from the pool of those they generally have contact with?

.. Or to fill a short lived role which is a simulcrum of reality, advertised to the general public?

It seems the problem here is marriage and movies have very different criteria.  A direct analogy may not work.

So anecdote fail.
