There is an important distinction between not giving a fuck about what other people think of you and not giving a fuck about other people’s feelings.
An “egalitarian” is someone who, realizing that a scale is imbalanced because there are six pounds on one side and twelve on the other, seeks to correct the imbalance by adding six pounds to both sides.
well that was the best damn explanation I’ve seen.
Why do you never hear this?
- business: I can't afford to pay my employees a living wage.
- free market conservatives: Lazy! If you can't afford one of the basic expenses of running a business, you shouldn't be running a business. Go back to school and learn how to run a business! Get a better business model! Why should you expect the rest of us to prop up your failure by feeding and clothing the employees YOU can't pay for with our tax money?
Ronald Reagan and Corruption…the Truth Behind the Lies
The Republicans and the Corporate-Controlled-Media have spent the last 30+ years trying to convince us that Ronald Reagan was wonderful. The reality is just the opposite…
Reagan ran the most corrupt administration of the 20th century.
By the end of his term, 138 Reagan administration officials had been convicted, had been indicted, or had been the subject of official investigations for official misconduct and/or criminal violations. In terms of number of officials involved, the record of his administration was the worst ever.
Since 9/11, and the subsequent militarization of the police by the Department of Homeland Security, about 5,000 Americans have been killed by US police officers. The civilian death rate is nearly equal to the number of US soldiers killed in Iraq. In fact, you are 8 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist.
If the 4,489 American soldiers killed in combat in Iraq constitute a condition of war, why can United States police departments kill nearly 5,000 American citizens and not be viewed as agents of war against we the American people?
