moothemagiccow: WhyKnot: TV's Vinnie: Don't worry. The "dumb stupid racist white hick" demographic is rapidly shrinking. That's why Rmoney lost. He was counting on enough Inbred Jeds to carry him into the White House, and he overestimated.

You are lame. There is ignorance and intolerance on each side.

Don't get me wrong, what these idiots did was disgusting and offensive, but then again, so was your post.

Yeah, you dont have to be white to be racist


As long as blacks are the oppressed and whites are the oppressors, you do have to be white to be a racist.

1) Minimize your spending. Take your savings out of the economy and hide it as best as you can.
2) In the same vein, take as much of your economic activity to the black market / cash only market as you can.
3) If you are thinking about closing your business down, go ahead
4) If you are keeping your business running, take a strong look at who you are hiring and firing (ie consider firing minorities and single women)
5) If you are a doctor begin limiting your patients or only take cash payments.
6) If you produce food (farmers) consider reducing your output to drive up prices and help Michelle O. with her fight on fat.
7)Do not associate, coach, elevate, or help in any way those who trend Democrat. This includes charities or even your own family.
8)If you are working hard to try and get ahead. Stop - enjoy your life and family while you still can.
9) Do not associate with liberal bastions such as schools, colleges, and the entertainment industry. Consider homeschooling your kids.
10) Move to a red state and start pushing for secession.
11) Military members near retirement should retire; make the Democrats fight the next war.

fusillade762: error 303: Also can some one explain to me exactly how one 'Goes Galt'?

Expression for undergoing a voluntary financial strike or decrease in income. An individual might choose to do this in order to protest the amount of money going to the government, or to protest what they feel are unfair taxes (if they earn less, they will be taxed less, therefore hurting the government). The term is taken from a character in Ayn Rand's novel "Atlas Shrugged"; the main character John Galt leads a movement where the wealthiest individuals leave their jobs for low-paying jobs in order to protest the socialist economy.


One way I've had it explained is "Stop producing and go on welfare in order to do your part to destroy the system."

Awesome! 9/10! You got a lot of bites!

That being said, I have moved out of securities and put everything into tangibles, like real property and tools I can use to make things.

The economy is still scary. Wall Street is back at the casino and nothing has changed since 2008. Though I'm keeping my business and have no problem with hiring minorities and liberals.

Unfortunately, I'm in a red state - Arizona. Funny thing is, this part of Arizona has the highest sales tax (11.4%) in the nation and the corrupt local government bleeds people dry. A new water meter costs $25k. No joke, twenty-five thousand dollars. As "conservative" as it claims to be, it farks everyone for fees and taxes. I'll be happy when the Hispanics flip Arizona to a blue state.

If the right can stick to the economy and self reliance, they will be just fine or years to come.

False equivalence. The violence, race laws (cf. AZ SB 1070), rabid identity politics, Party-sponsored abuse, denial of fundamental rights so on ad nauseam are pretty much all going in one direction. The truth isn't "somewhere in the middle" here.

And the guy is right. The Republicans are becoming increasingly and nearly exclusively the Party of White Christian less-educated men. As that notorious commie Lindsey Graham said "The demographics race we're losing badly, We're not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term."

The Republicans are still doubling down on Nixon's Southern Strategy. But the coasts are growing faster than anywhere else. Whites will not be the majority within a generation. The flyover States are withering. And we are increasingly urban. The WORMS voters - White Old Rural Male Southerner - are a shrinking but increasingly loyal (rabid?) core constituency of the Greedy Old Plutocrat Party.

I just have a few random mentations on this topic, and being logorrheaic, I'll share:

The most reactionary places are about forty percent liberal. The most liberal are about forty percent illiberal.
Mississippi can be likened to a do-do hole, as can Alabama, although there are nice places in them, ferinstance, Muscle Shoals, cannot get enough.
At least subconsciously, it has got to be humiliating to be a member of such a(n economically and, perhaps, culturally) defective society. This is what the racists, IMHO, are venting.
If one looks at the recent presidential electoral map, Mittland is a little third-worldy in the main. I've driven around this country, albeit I am a Chicago lifer, these places lack infrastructure!

//and organized labor
//and world-class unis

Really, there is a social divide in this country. Ya got efficient, modern, yet rather cold-hearted Germanic types in one place and Scots-Irish in the other. I think the 60s notion that economic prejudice prevailed in the South while (spacial) segregation obtained more in the North is still truthy, somewhat.

You mean illegals? Because clearly if they aren't documented they are illegal.

They need to go home; home can be Mexico, Cuba, Canada, or France, it doesn't matter. If you are not here legally, you need to go home. Every other country in the world actively controls their borders, the USA should be no different.

By allowing illegals to be here, we are spending millions of dollars that can be used on our own citizens. Our schools are busting at the seams, our social services are under funded.

I am sorry you were born in a different country that does not offer as many opportunities as the US, but it is not the US's responsibility to take care of you.

Additionally, by allowing illegals to be here we are creating job classifications that others won't do. Americans don't work in the fields anymore, prior to the installation of social safety nets people did.

Seriously...people here illegally are a big problem.

It's a lot more complicated than you care to admit. Deportation is not the solution, although Obama has done more of those than anybody.
I welcome immigrants, they make our country better. Your party and its ideas are losers. We've put up with anti- this and anti- that for too long. America has moved on, and Republicans are the abusive boyfriend that keeps promising to change.

There are lots of cash-only markets in the immigrant sections of any city. Sometimes the prices suck, but sometimes they're a lot cheaper because their clientele is so poor. Quality is always terrible, though.

"Black market" really just means "paying extra middlemen."

peterthx: theurge14: The rest of us don't turn into racist dicks when we get drunk, no counter-rallies needed to prove we aren't hateful protohumans.

Hateful isn't strong enough to describe what you guys are like when you're sober...

San Francisco after Bush was re-elected in 2004 (pops) 

/stay classy lefties


The difference between the above and what Obama is dealing with is different. Very different.

With Bush they wanted him dead for his actions - as in what he did as President. Personal choices he had control over. While death is a bit harsh for 99.99% of crimes (and the fact that once someone is dead you can't bring them back if they're later found innocent) I can understand where they're coming from. I don't agree but I can understand.

With Obama they want him dead because the color of his skin is darker than theirs and they view him as inferior for that reason. If people want him dead because he kicked a dog I could understand that. If they wanted him dead because they genuinely thought (because they're delusional) he was going to turn control of the country to the UN and put us all into FEMA camps I'd understand that too. I don't find it reasonable in any case but it is understandable. But him being black? Why not want him dead because he wore the wrong kind of shoes or ate his pizza crust first.

Racism has to be some sort of mental disorder that some can work their way out of without the help of medication and a therapist.

While you're clearly a troll the point needs to be driven home to people who can't understand why this is different.

tinyarena: That's it? We're reduced to elchip trolling? What has happened to us!

I think most of the Farkers are spent after all the election threads. Give them a few hours of rest.

elchip: OGT, where "T" is for "Troll".

Yup.


I actually took all my trolls (all 12 of them) off ignore. I figured I'd give them a fresh start to make it onto the list.

WhyKnot: They need to go home; home can be Mexico, Cuba, Canada, or France, it doesn't matter. If you are not here legally, you need to go home. Every other country in the world actively controls their borders, the USA should be no different.

By allowing illegals to be here, we are spending millions of dollars that can be used on our own citizens. Our schools are busting at the seams, our social services are under funded.

I am sorry you were born in a different country that does not offer as many opportunities as the US, but it is not the US's responsibility to take care of you.

Additionally, by allowing illegals to be here we are creating job classifications that others won't do. Americans don't work in the fields anymore, prior to the installation of social safety nets people did.

Seriously...people here illegally are a big problem.


The downside of this is that it's been repeatedly shown that most immigrants produce a net economic gain: for their employers, the area and nation as a whole through taxes, and the economy in general. US College-educated immigrants in particular have a track record of starting profitable and efficient companies and shoveling boatloads of cash back into their adopted nation, rather than the omnipresent fears of xenophobes worried about competition and being bled dry. (Foreign-educated immigrants typically work for less and send more to their families than US-educated. It is a real problem, but artificial restrictions snare everyone equally despite wildly different circumstances.) Why on earth would you believe that the US-educated children of illegal immigrants are going to be wildly different from the rest of their US-born generation, when they integrate even better than the ones who come just for college?

And yet our visa and green card system is one of the slowest in the world, among nations that actually accept foreign workers at all. Yes, maybe if we just threw out all quotas and had a hard, realistic discussion centered around numbers and statistics instead of emotion and xenophobia, we'd improve our economy and quality of life while living up to the whole fantasy of being America, where anyone can become anything.

So is there any actual liberals in Mississippi? If the college town is spewing this nonsense that can't be a good sign. Good luck southern Democrats, I remember how tough it was (native Texan) and I can't even imagine how much worse it would be in Miss.

Thanks to those in this thread, I may not agree with you, but I appreciate the discussion.
