Recognize that you are supporting slavery in a minor form by forcing someone to do something preemptively.
I mean it. I don't want you to pay for my hospital bills unless you want to. Hospitals should not be required to provide healthcare.

I will die if I must, but the abolishment of all forms of slavery will indeed be complete.

Give me liberty or give me death. Really, I welcome it.

Our government spends trillions a year killing and maiming men, women and children around the world and doling out funds to their buddies. If they want to get me insured, give me insurance, don't force me to pay for something I can already not afford.

I shouldn't have to sign up for shit.

We cannot fix the mistakes of the past be reversing them in the present, but by making the playing field level and allowing the balance to solve itself in the coming generations.

Don't fight racism and sexism with reversed racism and sexism, fight it with egalitarianism! Do not try to repair the past, for that in itself is impossible. Just solve the root of the problem and let the effects sort themselves. Do not try to solve each and every improper effect or risk further significant damage to the playing field.


Kim Dotcom Launches Political Party In New Zealand 133

Posted by samzenpus
from the strange-bedfellow dept.
judgecorp (778838) writes "Fugitive entrepreneur Kim Dotcom has launched a political party in New Zealand although he himself cannot stand for election. Dotcom, founder of Megaupload is a German national, not a New Zealand citizen. He is also on bail pending extradition to the US over claims that his Megaupload site infringed copyright. The Internet Party manifesto promises net neutrality, privacy, and faster broadband. Meanwhile, his new venture Mega is now worth NZ$210 million (£108m) thanks to a reverse takeover. He has also had to assure the New Zealand media that owning a signed copy of Mein Kampf doesn't mean he is a Nazi."

Why would you be doing that? Libertarians are known for wanting to revert to the gold standard. You know, the one originally enshrined in the US Constitution that has long since been disbanded.

President Franklin D. Roosevelt outlawed private gold ownership (except for the purposes of jewelery) in 1933. Think about that. Also, realize the Federal Reserve is a private entity not within nor controlled by the United States Government.

The US Constitution: Article 1, Section 10
"No state shall enter into any treaty, alliance, or confederation; grant letters of marque and reprisal; coin money; emit bills of credit; make anything but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts; pass any bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law impairing the obligation of contracts, or grant any title of nobility."

According to the United States Constitution, the Federal Reserve Note is entirely illegal, unconstitutional and void.

I'm not blaming either side for anything, the entire system is nearly completely corrupt. There is no government, just enforcers. I want people to stop telling themselves that the 90's were a good time under Clinton. He was just as bad as every other president. They're all bad.

Instead of giving $3.5 trillion to the banks, he should have given it directly to the people that got screwed in this catastrophe. Obama has rewarded the banks for failing.

Of course, that mess was directly caused by the Clinton Administration's removal of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933.

I'm currently watching through the DS9 series. The other day I came across an episode, a two-parter, that was sort of shockingly close to reality. If started off with Cisco accidentally going back in time and ending up in our near future (within a few decades). The majority of the population had been moved into walled-ghettos because they didn't know what to do with all of the jobless people, so they hid them all away from the job-having class so as not to have to deal with actual social change.

I was sort of left in awe as the episode came out in the 90s yet felt very much similar to what might end up happening to Occupy Wall Street. They were certainly treated by the government in a *very* similar manner.
