Phil Ochs was spot on almost 50 years ago:

Here's to the schools of Mississippi
Where they're teaching all the children that they don't have to care
All of rudiments of hatred are present everywhere
And every single classroom is a factory of despair
There's nobody learning such a foreign word as fair
Oh, here's to the land you've torn out the heart of
Mississippi find yourself another country to be part of

It's time for the people who make this country work to put up or shut up. It's time to make the deadbeats feel some pain IMHO.

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.

Ironically, there's a link below the Daily Mississippian story on the Obama protest to a piece about Ole Miss students electing their first African-American homecoming queen.

Courtney Pearson is both first black queen in Ole Miss history and the first non Greek student to win the title.

When her selection was announced, Pearson told the crowd that the credit ought to go to the students who elected her. "Don't applaud me. Applaud them. Look at how progressive they are," she said.


Saying "Wow, your homecoming queen has black skin! You're so progressive!" in 2012 is rather like telling your son "Wow, you put the square block in the square hole! You're so smart!" when he's 35.

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.

The funny thing is that you think you're a victim, but in reality, you are far more of a burden to your country than any welfare recipient.


Illusions are not cheap.

What's really funny is that the douchebags who would REALLY follow these instructions--like minimizing spending, using only cash, stop working--are likely not contributing much to society anyway. They're probably marginal producers, unemployed or otherwise minimal contributors who would suffer the most if they did what these idiots suggest. Or they are survivalists or militia members who are already off the grid, in which case they wouldn't see these instructions because they already live them. It's just a way for panicky trolls to make themselves feel better, but it's pretty useless advice.

I am quoting you because I read that over on freeperland and it made me lol a little in my pants.

I kept checking them out on election night and went from schadenfredue to fear to schadenfredue to depression to schadenfredue to lollarity to serious lollage to should i call the secret service to schadenfredue and now I don't even know what to think.

And I fully get republicans frustration with the election and have no problem with people being upste and venting, but man, some of the stuff that just happens there is... wow...

I fear this country has lost all sense of historical and global context and perspective and now every election cycle will just be evaluated on pure, unbridlled, instantaneous emotion. I'd love to believe our elected leaders can take an objective look at the practical realities of where we are as a country and come up with reasonable solutions, but hell, when I look at the electorate backing the fringe elements of both parties, and lately especially the far right, it's pretty unnerving.

Also can some one explain to me exactly how one 'Goes Galt'?

I remember reading a recent interview with the people in the picture. Apparently the white woman felt bad about it afterwards and reached out to the black woman, and they were briefly friends. But eventually they grew apart - the article suggested it was because of the white woman's racist friends and relatives.

Not sure if I understand your post. Why would we need the results to of the election to confirm ignorance and intolerance?

Plenty of people voted for Romney because he wasn't the black guy. Plenty of people voted for Obama because he was the black guy.

Plenty of people despise Republicans simply because they are Republicans. Plenty of people despise democrats simply because they are democrats.

Our political system is broken and thrives on the negative instead of the positive.

Hah.

At any rate, I'd like to point out that as I recall, Elizabeth (the black girl) had some problems later on (maybe stemming from being so suddenly infamous), and that Hazel seemed to sort of work out okay - in terms of job and family. For me that was the ambivalent part. Elizabeth didn't want the notoriety and really never got a choice to avoid it, even in later years. Plus all that unresolved angst (hers, others, America's) preyed on her IMO. The stories may paint her as a bit hard-nosed but my sympathy lies with her. Hazel did a good job maturing, but I think she had a bit easier row to hoe in general terms (my personal opinion again, obviously).

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.

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."

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.

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.

L.D. Ablo: I'll be happy when the Hispanics flip Arizona to a blue state.


I think the voting patterns of the coming generation are going to deeply sadden you, if you think Hispanics are going to make Arizona blue. They're the fastest-growing conservative bloc in most states, voting primarily on social issues unless their economic livelihoods are directly threatened; even the ones that leave the Catholic church usually turn right around to some Pentecostal megachurch that feels like home.

robohobo: So, what do other countries politicians fight about, once homos and whores have been given the okay? I mean, everywhere has at least two sides, it's not like people will ever get along. Even Star Wars has the good guys vs the rebels.


Money, of course; there will never be enough to stop fighting over it. Plus anyone in politics is going to be a megalomaniac who wants his or her name stamped on as many things as possible, however useless, and creates hypocritical scandals out of stupid shiat. People are people everywhere.

Euro politics are so much more hilarious than ours though. Ours are just hate, hate, and more hate now, theirs have sex, violence, goofy stunts, lunatic fringes actually getting elected, weekly riots, and more. Something like the surreal marriage of Cinemax late-night with local business commercials in Beirut.

What the hell are you talking about? Show proof if you're going to make a claim like that. Black people also share some social conservative views but they are the pillar of the civil rights movement as well as more left wing. It seems a similar pattern is emerging with Latinos and pretty much every minority in this country. Until the GOP stops using xenophobic rhetoric they will continue to lose Latinos and Asians just like they've been losing black people since FDR/Kennedy. On top of that people from 18-40 are much more liberal than the rest of the nation, no matter what ethnicity.

So, the people there who fight against this type of thing-the ones who turn out to counter protest-and all of the ones that shook their heads in disgust at this minority of idiots should be nuked? Just screw them all because of the actions of a few? So, if I live in France, I can use this act by a group by a few Americans to justify calling Infernalist and his family and friends "farking retarded dregs of society" because they live in America and Mississippi is part of America-so they're all the same?

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,

2) In the same vein, take / 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.

Not liberals as the rest of the country would define them. In MS, the racism is alive, well and not disguised. "Mixing" is highly frowned upon, and you'd best do all your socializing with people of your own race. Black folks and white folks refer to each other as "the blacks" or "the whites" and treat each other as though they were different alien species. What passes for liberal in MS would be someone who thinks racism is bad -- but does NOT approve of any real measures that would eliminate the social/political/economic differences between the races.

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.

Or fight the next peace?

APE992:
While you're clearly a troll the point needs to be driven home to people who can't understand why this is different.


Troll. You Keep using this word but it doesn't mean what you think it means...you think it means someone who dares disagree with you or point out your hipocrasy. Well, it doesn't.

Yes it is different THOUSANDS on your side participated in this behavior openly. It was celebrated here and other places. Anti-Bush protests disguised as anti-war protests, the same ones that magically disappeared once Obama took office and yet the wars (and Guantanamo) continued.

This bullshiat in Mississippi is not how the vast majority feels, no matter how much you want to think or make it out to be.

holdmybones: StrangeQ: Wayne 985: fusillade762: tinyarena: That's it? We're reduced to elchip trolling? What has happened to us!

Hey, at least SOMEONE is trying.

And speaking of classy, I'll just leave this here.

31 Worst People On The Planet

Barack Obama must be pretty happy that he'll be president for four more years. These people are not...and they are terrible.

I love the guy at #17 who calls him a "ni**er" and then attacks black people for voting on race... I also love that all their names/Twitter handles were shared to expose this idiocy.

I want to beat each of those people with a rubber hose. I really don't think there is any other way to explain to them that they will understand how completely dumbshiat backward and ignorant they are...

Possibly greenlighting that link and letting the (Fark) world see their names and idiocy right in the open would do the trick. Draw as much negative attention to them as possible.


I'm surprised it hasn't. Let's get on that.

Nothing to see here...
Stupid drunk redneck kids acting like stupid drunk redneck kids.

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...


Right, I'm a loony lefty because I'm not racist. Got it.

Maktaka: zamboni: Creative Name: It was a small group of drunken idiots, and we had a farking counter-rally the very next night with a lot more people.

But hey, don't let that get in the way.

Well what can you do? A couple hundred drunk students acting like racist dicks makes a lot better story than the over 16000 who attend Ole Miss who weren't.

People love to cherry pick stories that tend to confirm their preconceptions. It's called bias confirmation. It's all part of being human. A flawed, ignorant human.

Why was it only Mississippi that had the racists rallying? Why was it JUST there and not also at Princeton or Harvard or CSU or Ohio Wesleyan or .......


Yeah... like you'd ever hear about it anyway. If Romney had won it would've been written off as a minor incident. It would get about the same coverage as the larger counter protest at Ole Miss that took place the next day.

People want to hear bad stories about bad people, and young people who attend a college in Mississippi, as well as the people in the South in general, are bad people. They all deserve to be punished for the sins of their fathers and grandfathers.

The story is a liberal conspiracy to make southerners look bad? Is that your final answer?


Um... no. I don't believe that I mentioned a "liberal conspiracy." Maybe I'll go back and re read my post.

Nope... still not there.

The story happened. However, anyone with a blog and an agenda can make it bigger than it really was. Anyone can post stories to news aggregators, such as Fark. Bad stories are more interesting than good stories. They draw more greenlights. more comments, more page clicks. Since they are more visible, people who have certain preconceptions tend to read, trust, believe and remember such stories.

And they will never, ever notice or give any weight to any followup that might tend to go against their preconceptions.

Also notice I didn't mention liberal or conservative. It happens both ways. We could be talking racial incidents, gun violence, unions, world affairs, puppies... whatever. I guess that was the point.

/personally anti-puppy. little bastards. little cute bastards.
