If you can't see this, you've been watching too much Fox News.

Since you think anyone who disagrees with you in the slightest must be a slobbering neocon you are not even worth responding to.

When you grow up and learn that not everyone who disagrees with you is the boogeyman, I'll be happy to continue this discussion more rationally.

Business does have the power to drop an enormous lawsuit on you and force you to wipe out your life savings trying to defend yourself, and if a judgment is obtained due their immense advantage in resources, they can attach your salary and assets for life.

You do know what a "judgement" is, right?

HINT: It's a government action, not a business one.

They also have the power to put false information of your credit history, which is virtually impossible to expunge, and thus ruin your ability to buy a home, or a car, or a loan for any other worthy purpose, or even rent an apartment and even to deny you a job (since prospective employers invariably run credit checks).

You do know where credit reporting comes from, right?

HINT: Legislation enacted by congress (particularly the Consumer Credit Protection Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act).

You do know where corporations come from, right?

HINT: Acts of government.

Government created business, not the other way around. They are two heads of the same hydra.

Dante would not agree with you. Standing up to power IS betrayal--betrayal of your sovereign lord, which is one of the categories of betrayal Dante specifically listed.

You may disagree with that equivalence, but your parent is right. Standing up to power lands you in the deepest circle of hell, according to Dante.

. If you invented such a church, it would not be a legitimate church

Try telling that to Scientologists. Or Mormons. Or Seventh Day Adventists. Or, for that matter, Catholics. All of them were invented at one point in the recent (or not so recent as the case may be) past.

The only thing that makes a church "legitimate" is that it has enough "followers" to be politically influential. Anything else is just post-facto rationalization.

The point is that it isn't retaliation. Calling it that is disingenuous. Refusing to work for someone is not retaliation. Torching their car is retaliation. Harassing them at home is retaliation. Refusing to work for them is not retaliation.

Why is that so complicated to understand?

What I take personally is the constant, unending, pig-headed suggestion that because I hate (and I mean hate) Obama, I wasn't complaining about Bush when he did similar things.

I was.

And I actually voted for Obama, once.

But the constant parade of water-brained team players who come out to claim 'BUT THE OTHER GUY" every time another one of Obama's constitution-shredding sprees comes to light destroys productive conversation and helps ensure that nothing is done about the problem.

And I'm fucking sick and tired of it.

And I find it utterly infuriating when people like my parent post assume that if I criticize Obama (for being a lying, murdering, totalitarian prick) that it must mean I used to support Bush. I actually voted for Obama, once. I never voted for Bush. The auto-response that I "wasn't complaining about the same things when Bush was in office" is offensive, pig-headed, and only serves to derail productive discussion of the problem--hence the proposed addendum
