: : I'll gladly read posts that show some originallity of thought. Yours amounts to a rehash of Feelgoodism. I've heard it before in it's many different manifestations.
: SDF: Say Norman, is Feelevilism better than Feelgoodism?
Say, that's pretty good, coming from you.
: : The point, according to you, is that appeals to people's heart's/goodwill/rationality will do nothing leads to the question 'then what will'? and 'your appeals are to do what'? and 'how do you know that the appeal you make is not in competition w/ other powerful appeals'? and 'who are to judge the interior of a person's heart, a person's goodwill and his rationality?'
: : The Kuwaitis thought that 300 Billion dollar defense budget was a pretty good thing in '91.
: SDF: I'm sure the Thousand-Year Empire looked like a pretty good bet back in 1940. Did that justify the effort to "make it so"? Aren't you basically "betting on the winners" here with your support of Kuwait?
You avoided the relevant part of the question. Perhaps because the answer is YOU DON'T KNOW.
: : : One thing I can say is that John Lennon, even with his ultimate allegiance to capitalism ("Revolution" is one song that makes this quite clear) is still worlds above you and your reptilian mind. Lennon, for all his posturing and naive polemics, at least had his eyes on changing things for the better. You're just a parasite, and an embarrassingly misinformed one at that.
: : To bad your attracted to entertainers as a source of thought. What's wrong with reptiles?
: SDF: It's their very tiny brains, maybe? Entertainers, at least, are MAMMALS.
Remember Samual Day Fassbinder, it's quality that counts, not quantity. Ever hear Marilyn Manson? How about Cop Killer? Fan of theirs too?
: : "Military spending is inherently undemocratic"?? This is too stupid to refute. Just be thankful that some men are willing to fly those birds to keep you and your worthless hide safe.
: SDF: It's those FRIENDLY DICTATORS they're keeping safe, me, I'm an afterthought. You know, the ones that prop up corporate investment? Look, Norman, the US can defend itself with FAR less than 48 cents of every tax dollar I will send the IRS this year.
I understand how important it is for you to keep repeating the tired old propaganda, it has been floating around for a long time and it has sucked in a lot of people, myself included at one time. Unfortunately for you once people decide to educate themselves about these matters they never believe anything the Left ever says. That's the boat that I've put you in Samual Day Fassbinder.
One of the great things about this country is that pukes like you have the freedom to spout off anything that spins your prop because other MEN are willing to drop your pals in their tracks anytime they want to treat the citizens of this country the way they treat the citizens of their countries. Lucky for you.
: "Defense" is another form of corporate welfare.
: Keep up the cheerleading for corporate welfare, Norman. You'll remind us of what's up.
