This is from my FaceBook page. My nephew is married to the crazy girl in the first message. She won't work because she can't figure out what last name to use and she/they are having their kids taken away due to neglect.
SH - I wish someone, somewhere could explain to me why Obama is a socialist. Using logic & facts, correct definitions and coherent language. Not to mention no quotes from blogs, newrepublic.com or it's ilk, or any of the clowns from Fox News. I've asked around. No one can give me an honest answer that actually meets those qualifications.49 minutes ago · Comment · LikeUnlikeYou like this.
AH According to a paper here (Norway), if he was a politician in Norway he'd belong to the most right-wing party, lol. Then again, we're those crazy liberal socialist democrats and every other bad word.
AS health care. that makes him a socialist, apparently.
MHBecause he asked for a beer that wasn't technically as American as it could have been, dammit!
Ninergold3 - ME Socialism - noun 1. a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole.
Obama is taking money that WORKING people bust their butts for in order to spead the wealth to the LAZY people of this country who ... Read Moredon't want to get a job and work for what they get. We work for everything we have (house, cars, etc) - that doesn't entitle someone who wants to sit on their butt all day playing computer games the very same thing.
JL Am I a socialist because I live in a country where healthcare is free? Because if that makes me a socialist then socialist me up baby.
AH You get a house and a car from the President if you go socialist? lucky you! Here we still have to work for our money, but get help if we're sick, at least.
M everyone that doesn't work is lazy? that's news to me.
LS I make video games for a living, so does that mean I enabling socialism? Sweet!
“JL Am I a socialist because I live in a country where healthcare is free? Because if that makes me a socialist then socialist me up baby.”
No, but you are a moron because nothing is “free”.
Wonder if Miss Tickly will show up here?
Never have an argument with a moron. They drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
Haha! Great minds think alike....
Trying To Have A Battle of Wits with Morons
Why do it? It’s...like wrestling a pig...the pig will have a ball and you will end up with mud and stink on you.
Why bother? You walked into a room full of enemies and were inadequately equipped to deal with it, which is why you’re now asking FR for help.
Don’t start fights you can’t win.
You’ve been here plenty long enough to know if you mention someone by name in a post, you are supposed to ping them.
>>>>>> Never have an argument with a moron. They drag you down to their level and beat you with experience. <<<<<
Concur. You have to step into their irrationality to “have an argument” with them.
Use Ann Coulter’s approach: smack them down hard and fast before they drag you into their demented world of unreason and feelings.
My husband, over the weekend, got into one of these arguments on Facebook with a cousin (American citizen) that has been living in England for the past 11 years. The cousin is all for Obamacare. My husband didn’t come back with any facts, just opinion, but it would have been useless even if he was presented with facts, as his mind would not have changed. Fortunately, there were a couple of people on the thread that weren’t for Obamacare and of course there were some that knew of some personal anecdote where it justified the hugely expensive, freedom limiting takeover by the government.
Norway’s socialism is supported by profits from North Sea oil.
LOL! I’m engaged in one myself right now! Jumped in to help a fellow Conservative! Not the first time, not the last time. I play one of the games there and have over 1200 friends who can see my posts. I want to let the peeps on our side know they are not alone, and I pray the ‘others’ might come around. But mostly for our side.
I try to not let it bother me, because then I might stop trying. :)
Very true. It’s useless to get into an argument with crazy people. It has been a trying week (had to file for a
restraining order for daughter’s ex-boyfriend. I
allowed myself to get dragged somewhere I shouldn’t have.
Gee thanks. Do you think I hadn’t figured that one out all by myself? I’ve always come to my FReeper family for help and back-up. Why should this time have been any different?
Some people have innate abilities and can sell them for a good price. Many have average ability but work very hard at whatever they do and make smart choices in life, reaping the financial rewards for their labor. The terminally naive among us seem to believe that this is 'unfair' to those who either have little innate ability or, more often, simply don't apply themselves and/or make foolish life choices that limit their opportunity for financial advancement.
These folks embrace socialism because they know the unproductive will benefit and can do so while pretending that taking the fruits of their labor from people who are productive is 'social justice'. Most of realize that it's just stealing from others in the name of 'fairness'. Unfortunately, when the stealing is promoted and enforced as well as distributed by a smothering, all-powerful government, no longer accountable to the citizens it purports to serve', the productive citizens are doomed to being, not only stolen from, but demonized by their government (and the unproductive) for having accumulated wealth, no matter how hard they worked for it.
Morons may love socialism but they have no real concept of how stifling and completely counter to normal, human self-interest it really is. They'll learn - too late - if Obama and his gang are allowed to keep destroying our economy and subjugating the people of America with lies about 'fairness' and 'choices' that will no longer exist if this crowd is not soon vanquished. Time is running out.
Here’s another you might like: Never argue with a fool....people might not know who’s who.
Not to mention the fact that they don’t provide for their own defense but hide behind the skirts of the USA.
I’d love to see the US withdraw from NATO (and Korea) and wish them best of luck in preserving their own societies.
Which is rapidly running out.
