    Please explain the past two hundred years of rising living standards. Did capitalism have anything to do with it? Was it an accident? Can we recreate it by mandate of government?

    You are setting up a straw dog and knocking it down. No one wants malnourished kids, but have you ever noticed that it is more prevalent, up to outright starvation, in the more closed societies?

    How do you explain the success of Hong Kong? Why did the Chinese on the mainland long to get to Hong Kong? Why did the East Germans break through the Berlin Wall to get to the West?

    Hong Kong is especially interesting, since it didn't have any natural resources, not even much water, yet it has become a hub of commerce. For many years they had a flat 15% tax on income. The place thrived.

    Whoa, I'm pretty pro-capitalism. But I like the idea of a paid month off per year like the eurofags get.

    Stephan Colbert just did another segment on Anonymous tonight re: Koch Brothers & American for Prosperity!
    It was hilarious! He used Anonymous logo & added Anonymous For Prosperity!
    He actually removes his head & replaces it with a question MARK!
    Hope someone can post it soon. Probably will be available tomorrow!

    "A public union employee, a tea party activist, and a CEO are sitting at a table with a plate of a dozen cookies in the middle of it.
    The CEO takes 11 cookies, turns to the tea partier and says, 'Watch out for that union guy. He wants a piece of your cookie.' "

    And either way it worked lol ol hahhah eheheh

    The "can't" mongers can now go suck it."bawwhahah NOOO that gonna make us loook bad!"

    The House Democrats don't think so. Of course after what the CoS pulled with operation snow white, and then the 90's IRS shenanigans, perhaps its a case of "the enemy of our enemy is our friend?"

    Every time someone pulls the ‘redefine socialism, attribute all good to capitalism’ shit it makes me want to tear my eyes out. Here we have just being performed:
    Imho, this is a pathetic argument. Roads are socialist contributions. Schools are socialist contributions. Police are socialist contributions. Do you really fucking think that without good roads, a good educated workforce and good security any of those rising standards of living would have happened? Trying to attribute it all on capitalism is simply daft, and smacks more of a semantic argument that one based in fact.
    Accusing your opponent of a strawman while immediately following up with a strawman of your own is fail. In capitalist societies the only thing that is ‘wanted’ is profit. If children being starved helps generate profit then that is what will happen in a capitalist society. At this very moment speculators buying up food stocks to make themselves a profit is directly contributing to rising food prices in countries where starvation is a real issue.

    This is where the fallacy of your word game is exposed. Capitalism unrestrained will fuck you. This is why we have laws on working conditions and the minimum wage. This is why we have social programmes like schools and police. Ignoring the socialistic elements of society to try putting capitalism on a pedestal is simply daft.
    Maybe you should actually research that a little more. There are serious problems with getting food, and many in that country are skipping meals to make ends meet. Real thriving place if you ignore things like this.

  13. First of all, no one here advocates illegal methods, successful or not.

    And, if you would read for comprehension rather than reading for sake of rant, you'd have noticed the call for investigations is because of the HBGary emails, dumbass. The bit about AFP was tagged-on as a "and in latest news" addendum and the only likely investigations are going to be FBI coming after those involved.

    And even the Washington Post, which is a traditionally progressive publication, gave AFP the last word, which you conveniently skipped over, allowing them to characterize Anonymous as attacking dissent and silencing free speech.

    What a tremendous success!
  14. And what just makes it keep getting better, not only did AFP prez Phillips get the final words in a fairly liberal publication:
    It also gives them free press exposure that can be turned into more supporters and more money.

    I didn't like that one, whomever's it was. Because anonymous can not partner. That requires management.

    Maybe pushing the fact that old man Koch started the John Birch Society would be a good idea. The John Birch Society never really had a good reputation so maybe linking the teabaggers to the JBS would help discredit the baggers.

    Especially since there was a post on their Facebook page accusing the john birchers of starting the "far left."
  39. lulzgasm Member

    Here's the link to the article they linked to on their koch Industries facebook page:

    This of course being their little tirade to go with the link:

    "The bleatings about the influence of Koch Industries have run completely off the rails and it's discrediting to the left," writes Mark Hemingway at the Weekly Standard.

    "The left's collective Koch delusions are especially odd considering that for years liberals have been accusing conservatives of wallowing in the fever swamps George Soros' name comes up."
