Bill Dog's Journal: North Dakota is the new Walmart 18

Journal by Bill Dog

I've seen my 2nd news piece in days trying to besmirch North Dakota.

I barely remembered we even have such states, until the Right started talking about it, how in this shitty economy there are supposedly jobs there and good paying ones, in oil industries. Hmm, someplace where capitalism hasn't been suppressed and is very successful, tapping our natural resources that are fossil fuels, well no wonder, it could only have been a matter of time.

Like supposedly a large army of muckrakers descended upon Alaska when Sarah Palin became a perceived threat to the ongoing advancement of Progressivism, it wouldn't surprise me if a Leftie swarm has descended on North Dakota to dig up or invent whatever's needed to counter the message of the possibility of free market prosperity and usage of the planet that's been provided to us.

And the fruits of their labors are starting to come out.

North Dakota is the new Walmart

  • Big money is being spent to manipulate the "economy". You are witnessing the epitome of capitalism. Quit being such a crybaby just because you aren't invited to the party. Welcome to trickle down, where maybe somebody will pay you to dig a hole for them.

    • errrr.. suppressed??

      • The government is serving the businesses it represents. The business runs the show and tells the government what barriers to put up. It's all very capitalistic, where the individual does not exist in the economies of scale of the market collective, and this is what it invariably evolves into. Everything grows as big as it can until the property damage becomes excessive.

        • I'm sure you're only observing, and neither approving, nor suggesting alternatives.
          • Suggestions have been offered. But then, you know the old story about leading a horse to water (whatever that is)... The approval comes from you as you serve to protect the status quo while repeating what FOX and pjmedia say. If you didn't approve, you would climb out of your trap. So, you can stop projecting that upon me.

            • Your offer of purely random elections, while not uninteresting, just has too much variance, while not showing how it would minimize corruption.
              • I've already explained that too. And what makes variance a bad thing? That's what helps to mitigate the corruption. I prefer variance much more than the stagnant cronyism and careerism you have now. The present situation makes it very easy to predict that the decline will continue. Maybe you prefer that to the unknown, as most people do prefer to stick with the devil they know. They, like you, prefer clinging to what they have their hands on inside the monkey trap.

                  How so? Are you also going to vary age? After all, people are paying income taxes well ahead of voting. Where is the justice in that? Are we prepared to have a sixteen year old girl as President, in the service of variance? Why or why not?

                  • I already told you there is a minimum age. And there is no "vote". The name is drawn out of a hat. And so what if they are paying income taxes, they are using government services. Personally, I believe another, more fair tax system would arise anyway, so the point of taxes would be moot. There is no justification to keep on doing what we are doing. Where's the justice in that?? Hmmm? Invariably it leads to disaster, war, etc. This is historical fact. Only people of, or who want great privilege have a reason

                    • Why is there a minimum age? I mean, if it's going to be random, why not blow off age age, as well as borders?

                      That move was nearly Krugmanesque in its majestic sweep. Bravo.

                    • why not blow off age age, as well as borders?

                      You're right, why not? Especially the borders, put an end to human trafficking once and for all. Borders have only made the planet into a smugglers paradise anyway.

                      Uh oh... no can do... it would mean having to coexist as mere equals... Unacceptable... Can't have it. Life is no fun if we can't punish the hedonists and infidels.

                    • Why not? Are not all cultures morally equivalent?
                    • To nature, yes. Man values some cultures more than others. More than likely he will value his own above all others. Other than that, I don't understand the question.

                    • Man values some cultures more than others.

                      How is that possible, in you hyper-materialist model, this 'value' notion.

                    • Are you that crippled that you don't know how to decide things for and by yourself? Pity...

                    • Oh, I have highly refined means of deciding things. Weighing them against objective truth is a useful tool. You've elsewhere argued that people are purely bestial slaves of their hormones. I'm just watching your oscillation show.
  • The only sane use of a banking system I've ever seen. If Government is going to keep a monopoly on currency, the least we can do is use usury to reduce taxation.

Sigmund Freud is alleged to have said that in the last analysis the entire field of psychology may reduce to biological electrochemistry.
