Journal: Terminal Ballistics and Ferguson 5

Journal by RailGunner
One argument made on television last night by a Ferguson City Councilwoman was that the Officer used "excessive force" by shooting a 6'4", 240 pound man 6 times.

6 times! She said.

...... the ignorance is breathtaking.

Was the man ever, at any point, anything other than a campaigner? I have two words for anyone who hasn't been seeing through BHO the entire time, the second of which is "you".

If that is the case, then wouldn't your argument be going back towards President Lawnchair having done nothing? If he really isn't

anything other than a campaigner

... then it would be difficult to imagine him being able to find any time to do any POTUS stuff. Even more so, it would be quite nearly impossible for him to gather this party to gather momentum for legislation.

In other words if you want to take that angle you can't really support your bit about him prepping to bring about a new world order.

In other words, your malarkey about the tea party being somehow in pursuit of "fiscal accountability" is malarkey at best. Your party wants only to bring more wealth to their favored class

You make it sound like the Tea Part wrote the Communist Manifesto, or something.

And with that you make it quite clear that if you did attempt to read The Communist Manifesto, you completely missed the key point.

Equally so the point remains that the tea party doesn't actually represent fiscal accountability. They use that catch phrase as a pleasant veneer for their main goal of providing maximum benefits to the smallest fraction of "earners" at the top of the economic ladder, at the cost of everyone else.

Actually, you so far haven't displayed any functional understanding of Communism or Communist ideals. Hence the correct statement would be that you haven't shown yourself to have read Marx at all.

Where would you like to move the goalposts to now? Do you have any recollection to where they were originally before you started moving them?

I mean, I did. Right on this very page. Stay special, you.

And clearly, you discarded my response because yours was in some magical way vastly superior.

In other words thank you for no rebuttal whatsoever.

I will go ahead and repeat what I said earlier:

Amping up the regressive nature of the most regressive taxation system in the world is not even close to the same as "fiscal accountability". I would suggest you try again but you haven't really tried once.

In other words, your malarkey about the tea party being somehow in pursuit of "fiscal accountability" is malarkey at best. Your party wants only to bring more wealth to their favored class, which is frankly astonishing as it is only a further acceleration of where the vast overwhelming majority of this country's wealth already accumulates.

What if it is worthy of utter disdain?

How can you conclude that without reading it? Just because you assume (sans fact, as per your most favored m.o.) that communism is TEH EEEEVIL, doesn't mean that the book written by Marx on the matter is actually connected to any of your assumptions on the matter.

What did you want to gain from it, and why are you not gaining it?

I wanted some insight into the human condition

This seems counter to your oft-repeated bits about people "scaling" (or not). Why would you read the writings of one man - who mind you was well past dead long before Lenin lead the Soviets in a strange contortion (and eventual complete discard) of his theories - and pretend that it represents accurately the beliefs of vastly more people? Even more so, why would you be so arrogant to fake the reading to begin with?

What I got was the precursor to BHO's 2012 campaign against Romney.

I'm not sure what you could possibly be reading that would resemble the re-election of the country's most conservative executive in history over a waffling man who wrote the bill that was very much the model of the bill whose nickname bears the name of the former.

Or... and this may sound zany but hear me out. Maybe 51% of people did a risk/benefit analysis and decided that giving someone there password was actually beneficial for them.

Not possible. Only people who use devices in exactly the same manner as that proscribed by a /. nerd can be beneficial. (No wireless, less space than a Nomad...)

Every successful person has had failures but repeated failure is no guarantee of eventual success.
