Lyndon Johnson was the closest to honest Democratic President. And he wasn't half as good as JFK or FDR.

Some legislations are necessary and good. As we innovate into new realms of endeavors, new rules are often needed. Of course, there are tons of ancient rules which are de facto impotent and obsolete(e.g., miscegenation, sodomy, fornication) and should therefore be purged(but not forgotten with their original motivations).

The fact that sex is so prevalent in all organisms means that the "purification of the bloodline" is maladaptive(and for losers) by purging all males or all females. Slow moving creatures such as snails still do sex although they may not find mates fast so they maximize the probability of mating successfully by becoming hermaphrodite.

Most surviving human societies have codified this promotion of heterosexual intercourse into customs, laws, and taboos to maximize their populations in accordance with the evolutionary mandate. However, that was developed when the global population was small. I think most reasonable people will agree that we are overpopulating the Earth nowadays so unconventional sex is unlikely to decimate a human population.

My problem with our current regime is that the leader had said that he would allow one new regulation only if two were retired. Without looking at what is new being regulated and what are old being retired, playing the number game is moronic.

On fans we require grates to protect people from being cut up. Why do we not require grates on propellers on boats, for example, to protect water creatures from being cut up? It is because water creatures cannot sue in court. Deregulation just for the sake of reducing the count of regulations is as stupid as allowing removing all grates from all fans.

I think we should modernize, streamline, and rationalize our laws and regulations. Let the count be whatever it needs to be. Minimizing it often makes compliance easier so getting feedbacks and re-evaluating should be done from time to time.

It's not the proclamation nor the intent. Evil is the harm that's done.

If only more people looked at the results of the harm passed legislation has done and continues to do and looked at the people who authored it and then voted for it!

Maybe there would be fewer of these assholes in office and a shitload less bad legislation.

not sure what you are trying to say here.

It's pretty simple.

People (politicians for example) are not necessarily who they SAY they are (are not necessarily how they identify themselves publicly).

sHillary is not a progressive nor a liberal nor is she a democrat - she is and always has been a conservative republican who supports the wealthy few (herself included) individuals as well as corporations.

It is not about what a person says!

It is about what a person does!

not sure what you are trying to say here. yes the real hardcore right - curtis lemay and kissenger and dick cheney are insane crazies war mongering sickos. they make kennedy and obama and clinton look sane. all i was trying to say is that those who are called liberal also love war and have caused huge devastation around the world and at home.

"Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi broke with fellow Democrats who had criticized President Trump's military action against Syria to endorse the move late Thursday."

I agree. Let us start with the greatest economy (on a Purchasing-Power-Parity basis) in the world - Red China's, the source of most on-coming troubles growing from Pinocchio's nose; D-T bombs exploding around the Pacific Ocean will Not be the only firecrackers to come. To the kids pining for magic mushrooms, wishing for fireworks has consequences.

Here is a translation of your statement in several languages:

  • 声援全球99%。寡头在全球组织,我们也一定要。
  • Солидарность с 99% по всему миру. Олигархи организованы глобально, мы тоже должны.

  • Solidaridad con el 99% del mundo. Los oligarcas están organizados en todo el mundo, también debemos hacerlo.

  • Solidarité avec 99% du monde. Les oligarques sont organisés dans le monde entier, nous devons aussi.

  • Solidarität mit 99% der Welt. Oligarchen werden weltweit organisiert, wir müssen auch.

I Like (sarcasm) the way you left out those insane assholes who actually identify themselves as the RIGHT - as there are more war mongers there - than you will ever find in those who (in truth) identify with the left. A liberal "in truth" - one will find supports peace for ALL.

Considering ALL - one really can not equate JFK or any of your other examples as actually being liberal.

BTW - sHillary Rotten Clinton started out identified with the RIGHT - she only changed her label (not her conservatism) to reap votes.

God doesn't hate the common good.

No

That would be the narcissists who think of themselves as Gods! OH - yeah and evangelicals (or other religious fanatics) who like the Pharisees - interpret the bible to support their "OWN" beliefs and not the actual teachings of the bible!

not sure i am objecting to anything except the labels. i know what is meant by conservative and liberal in normal conversation but the labels are really meaningless i think. todays republican "conservatives" are really radical statist crazies and liberals are mostly warmongering promoters of gay marriage and the corporate agenda.

It seems to me that you object, correctly, to the conservatism of those labeled "liberal."

chomsky feels that he is a conservative - not only as you say about the environment but also the values of the enlightenment. the terms are all fucked up. for sure i do not want to be called a liberal - from kennedy who gave us vietnam, cuban missles and a war on south america to lbj to clinton and obama - these so called liberals have screwed the country and the world

Somehow in the land of politics conservatism has been transformed into greedy insane assholes out to destroy the world (even the part that they live on) to make a buck anyway they can and then hoard it!

This insanity has spread to the traditionally left side of the field as well - those would be more commonly be referred to as centrist dems or moderate also as well as the conservative dem ( democratic party has shifted so far to the right)

Hell even those dems that call themselves progressive (for the votes) are more often than not = conservative (example: sHillary Rotten Clinton for 1)

Still - all in all - those who actually identify themselves as being on the Right - are still the most insane!

Then there are those who would actually conserve (forests, wet lands, wilderness areas, clean water, clean air, clean land, etc) and fight to do so - funny thing "is" = most of THOSE are liberals!

Huh

Seems we have an oligarchy, as evidenced by Trump, being our chief and commander. Ironic sad

New investigations by Daniel Bice of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Mary Bottari of the Center for Media and Democracy analyze hacked internal documents, which reveal that much like the Koch network, the Bradley Foundation has launched a national strategy to help conservatives control the branches of state governments and alter state policy to lower taxes, shrink government and attack labor unions. The Bradley Foundation, which has historically supported taxpayer-funded “school choice” initiatives and work requirements for welfare recipients, is named after Lynde and Harry Bradley, two brothers who founded the profitable factory automation manufacturer Allen Bradley Co. After Lynde’s death in 1942, the Allen-Bradley Foundation was established. When Allen Bradley was sold to Rockwell International in 1985 for $1.7 billion, the foundation’s assets ballooned and it became the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation as it added a focus on promoting the brothers’ conservative ideology on a national scale. Thirty gigabytes of Bradley Foundation internal documents hacked by a group named Anonymous Poland reveal that after a $200 million influx of cash in late 2012 from the trust of Caroline Bradley, Lynde’s wife, the Bradley Foundation geared up to fund networks of conservative think tanks, legal centers, candidate recruitment organizations, media outlets and advocacy groups in 13 states, based on the foundation’s successful efforts in Wisconsin. The foundation had already laid the groundwork for a welfare-to-work program and a private school voucher system and defended GOP Gov. Scott Walker in a campaign finance probe, helping him survive a recall election prompted by his dismantling of public-sector unions.

ok i have to admit i smiled when i watched this - seems the guy deserved it - still?
