#3650602 The Middle Class Are The True Job Creators........

Posted AmScray on 17 March 2014 - 10:18 AM

I think a lot of it is we've entangled ourselves in nonsense where we don't belong.

I don't care what happens in Crimea no more than I don't care what happens in Iraq, Afghanastan, Libya, Egypt, Syria or anywhere else not in this hemisphere. If they want to eat each other, let them. Not my problem. Government killing its own people? Stand and fight, roll over and die, exodous to another country. Rooting for the oppressed, but not my problem. Poor, suffering craphole them, lucky, privileged, American me. Life may not be fair, but that isn't my problem either.

Snowballing of dangerous, major powers (ie- stopping communism from getting too large for us to handle, Germany confiscating Europe), different story. The idea that every shitty bush war or conflict is somehow our affair in the name of saving humanity from itself? Totally over that idea.

What my grandfather fought for in France isn't what my father fought for in Vietnam, its not what some poor kid thinks hes fighting for in Iraq.... however if we're going to send someone to fight, right or wrong, then we cannot hamstring them in the slightest. Politicians love to wave the banner of 'human rights' around when they're sending some kid to be canon fodder yet they don't have the political courage to carpet bomb the place before he goes in to ensure his odds are a lot better.

We don't talk about Curtis LeMay much these days yet he may have been the single greatest hero of the entire war, including Churchill. I will forever resent blacks for hijacking the name Curtis, thus preventing me from naming a son after him.

There are far more reasons for people to dislike Adelson and what he stands for than just his hypocritical position on online gaming

a moment of time beyond my memory
a thing that never was
a feeling i didn't feel
this forum
that place
her voice
my eyes
his hands
her moans
my pain
their pain
blood
my satisfaction
my satisfaction
my satisfaction
didn't last

Income disequilibrium is pretty much the greatest problem facing humanity today.
In this country, anyway, disempowering labor has played a HUGE role in the destruction of the middle class. Its on par with outsourcing.

I noticed you didn't explain yourself.

I'm an award winning author, and while it might seem far-fetched that I'm an award winning author, while simultaneously using terrible grammar, and not understanding basic language cues like sarcasm, you can rest assured that I am, in fact, quite good, and I certainly don't need to explain myself, especially to you.

Good day, Sir.
