I listened to part of the tax plan debate today on the radio and I just don't know what the fuck we're supposed to do. These monsters are pure evil. They have no sense of moral decency, you cannot reason with them. They will do nothing but steal from the poor and give to the rich at all cost. They're taking short term one time funds that could be used to make infrastructure investments that would repair our broken and unsafe bridges and roads and create jobs but instead they're giving it to the rich. It will massively increase the debt. Once the short term funds dry up, they're going to raise taxes on the poor to make up for it. In the beginning people will think they're getting a cut, but in a few years their rates are actually going to be higher. Unless you make more than 100k that is in which case they're going to be way lower... These fuckers know exactly what they're doing. It has been explained to them by the democrats in the room. They catch them in their lies and they sheepishly give another weak prevarication but you can hear the shame in their voice. Then they go ahead and one by one vote to do what they know is morally wrong and senseless.

This is fucked. I get murderous rage flowing through my body when I listen to this shit. Does anyone else get this? How do you cope?

Well, the solution to that is to educate people on what Republicans really stand for and what they are doing. Don't push any ideologies on people, just tell them the facts.

Part of the plan is that lower taxes on the rich and large corporations will cause the rich to repatriate money held overseas, which the wealthiest do to avoid paying taxes in the first place.

I agree that there is a lot of nasty self serving behavior going on here. But the spirit of lowering taxes on the wealthy is not necessarily bad, there just has to be a reduction in the budget to go along with it. The military is the obvious place for where these cuts should be, but it will never happen.

I don't think the tax bill will pass because of the deficit issue. There are still some republicans who are big time "anti-deficit" people, and a few of them will be enough to stop it from passing as they have promised their constituents to stop the deficit at any costs. The deficit isn't as much of a political issue as it used to be because people care more about fucking basketball players in a chinese jail than these things, but thankfully there are some republicans that have a degree of ideological consistency and will resist this bill.

Unfortunately, one of those people is our president. He'd rather get into a twitter war with John Q. Citizen than work with congress Republicans on a tax bill. It's easy for him to say "tax breaks for the middle class and spending a trillion dollars on infrastructure" (and republican voters are dumb enough to fall for it), but when it comes time to do the actual legwork, he's wasting taxpayer dollars in mar a lago while his wife is hiding from him in NY.

>the solution to that is to educate people on what Republicans really stand for

You're kinda discounting the swathes of racist Americans who vote R because they want to keep the darkies down, even if it means less economic security for themselves.

>"Republicans only serve the rich."
There are also people who believe trickle down economics will lead to their prosperity.

Listen to this quote that Trump is using to sell his base on welfare cuts which mainly go to his base.

>“That’s becoming a very big subject and people are taking advantage of the system and other people aren’t receiving what they need to live, and we think it’s very unfair to them,”

Notice how they frame this issue in racial dogwhistles? The stereotype of shaneequa the welfare queen who abuses the system is well ingrained thanks to right wing media so they're implying that black people abuse the system and will get less welfare which means there will be more welfare for the white people who follow the rules. When people talk about the right wing using racism to trick the poor white man into voting against his own interests, this is what they're talking about because if you haven't already guessed--prepare to put on your shocked face--republican cuts to welfare are not going to only affect black people and somehow give more money to white people, they're going to take more money from all poor people regardless of race(and give it to the rich in the form of massive tax cuts).

As opposed to stealing from the rich and giving to the poor?

Everyone is getting a tax cut bro, Trumps plan was for no income tax for the first $25K earned yearly.
I fucking wish I made 25K in a year.
It's the right think to do, stimulate the economy from below, increase local spending which helps small businesses and tax cuts for small business owners also helps with that. Small business in the US is something like 90% of jobs.

An interesting dark bit about the Penal Colonies was that of the "more than seventy thousand men sent to Guiana: at least three fourths died there; barely five thousand made it back to France; and nine thousand escaped--there were very few survivors."
Outrage: An Anarchist Memoir of the Penal Colony

>[...]that just like us they would have been massacred all together or tortured like our comrade Girier-Lorion and died the same way. In the meantime, both of us gave in to our executioners through our cowardice by not responding to their provocations and not revoloting as was our intention, but on the contrary paralyzing each other in the vain hope of doing better. Today I can contemplate things more objectively: Was it not the instinct of self-preservation, the hope of seeing our loved ones again that paralyzed this spontaneous movement that had been brewing for so long?

>And all this in spite of ourselves, in spite of the ideal that we held so close to our hearts making us so mindful of our dignity, which, however, we must admit that in spite of all our efforts to preserve it, we constantly left behind a little piece of it by accepting such a miserable existence.

"What was the result of our hesitation at that time?"

>The death of all our comrades, some murdered, others worn out and eaten away by the climate, the hardships, phsical and moral suffering, and the lack of care in their sickness. Pini was among them, even after having spent ten years in that hell and always with the hope of getting out or die fighting until his last breath if it was no longer possible. But he had not taken into account the sickness that was eating him away and wold end up annihilating his entire will, all his energy and then--too late.

"I am the only one from that time lucky enough to have sur vived and to have managed to get free, which allows me to write these lines that are an accurate account, I guarantee, of part of life lived in that cesspool."

Some of those anarchists were sentenced to the Penal Colony for simply making speeches. Really it doesn't matter how much you lick the boots of law enforcement and lawmakers, they'll continue to pass and enforce laws that don't benefit you. I think you'll find as the government continues to corrupt and concentrate wealth and power towards a tiny minority elite that we'll all be worse off, regardless of what one believes.

There's some interesting stories about informants and undercovers, like that dude in Britain who was intimately involved with an activist for years, but had a wife and kid somewhere else. He became increasingly depressed because of the mixed feelings and constant lies before the activist's friends eventually found info revealing that dude as an undercover.

>The global urban population has increased by a factor of five, from 0.7 billion in 1950 to 3.9 billion in 2014. It is expected to increase by another 60 per cent by 2050, when 6.3 billion people are projected to live in urban settlements. The global rural population is ceasing to grow. It is projected to reach a peak of just under 3.4 billion shortly after 2020 and to decline thereafter to 3.2 billion in 2050.

As many know, the current first world nations are supported on the backs of slave labor across the third world. The ripple effects of colonialism and anglo-centric global empires have resulted in Europe, N.Am., Aus/NZ having essentially the best quality of life on earth while the vast majority of Africa, M.E., S.Am., Asia, etc., are locked in sociopolitical turmoil stoked by the nations of the first world.

However as more and more humans move from rural to urban settings, global literacy and education rates rise, it will be harder and harder with each passing year to maintain the global system of oppressive wealth and power disparity. The mass migration to Europe from N.Af./M.E. is one symptom of this. Or will we instead see a higher percentage of urban people living a slum existence and in the end be just as easy to oppress? Will rural-centric global regions such as sub-saharan africa see an increase in political clout as fewer people worldwide work in the agricultural industries?

Secondly, a voluntary exchange insists upon mutually equal benefits. You must be a part of a higher class if you think this is happening. Why do I assume this? Because I don't see anything voluntary about submitting 90 hours a week at work, to see more than half of my income go to landlords, taxes and Bill collectors. So what? I can spend the remaining 50-400 bucks a month to loans,large food corporations, and maybe get an 8th? Sounds like to me my existence is making other people wealthy more so than myself. If you don't experience this you're either a. Blind or b. From the other side of the tracks.

a simple-majority plebiscite on membership in the EU is kind of a hamfisted populism though. Popular opinion on the issue can shift across that 50% threshold week to week just based on market performance and terrorist attacks. It's one thing to hold a referendum on a policy that can be enacted and dropped by a single government, but membership in the world's largest trade union is equivalent to a major constitutional amendment. Leave won mostly on nativist lies anyway; the border policy is going to be the first thing the UK hands over to try to soften the spanking.

Well, it's "the Sun" which can hardly be considered a respectable paper. I assume Rupert Murdoch wants a no-deal brexit so as to sew the UK into Americas orbit. A good way of doing that would be to piss off the Irish.
It's not so much a military issue as it is a question of economics and influence. What is curious is the apparent ignorance of the practicalities of international cooperation.

Just call it a tithe. Have everyone pay in 10% of their income and have the total amount collected be split by the number of adult American citizens and be distributed evenly to each citizen. Since the top 10% have 75% of the money and the bottom 50% have 1% of the money, if you take 10% of their income it's going to fund this setup so that most people are getting back more than they pay in so everyone will love it. Since the percentages and amounts everyone pays in and receives are the same, everyone will think it's fair and since it's in the bible everyone will love it.

Explain to the republicans that you don't have to declare people incapable of working in order to have them get this money so it will not discourage them from working and it will give them the capital they need to make business investments for themselves and help increase self sufficiency. It will also cut out government waste since there are no agencies staffed by people who don't care and do a bad job taking large pay cuts for making the process harder and more annoying for everyone. If you just cut everyone a check, everyone is free to make their own decisions for how to spend it. This is something that will give people opportunities in life and help in case they fall on hard times immediately when they need it without having to jump through hoops to get it.

Even if Trump's tax bill doesn't crash in the Senate the estate tax will be brought back as soon as dems take back control which will likely be 2020. Dems will run on a platform of disassembling Trump's legislation and taxes will be near top of the list.

What's funny is they might not even get tax reform through at this point. Senate gop seems adamant about keeping the individual mandate repeal in the bill. Once the number crunching is done and news outlets start reporting what a repeal is actually going to do to people's premiums, gop senators with a high volume of middle class constituents will find it hard to vote repeal.

Hell yeah, its good to critique how church organizations can interfere with movements for justice (or are corrupt). But critiques should go both ways. Yeares before Ferguson people were already being killed by the police with more frequency and it was church organizations that were pushing for reform and bringing attention to what was going on, as well as small anarchist groups too, with very different tactics and similar short-term goals, but different long-term goals. Instead of jamming the schism between these different perspectives and groups I think people should seek common ground while respecting the differences that exist. A la the St. Paul principles, a separation of time and place for different protests or whatever, that have different levels of conflict. Not just libertarian coalitions forming, but a broader base then that including as many people and beliefs as possible. Working together when they can, and doing their own thing when they can't.

Here's another good one:

A day after grandstanding about morals on the senate floor, Flake reminds up Republicans have none by Fanny Drammlestock - Wed, 25 Oct 2017 09:46:00 EST ID:D3IZqUk/ No.398183 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Don't be fooled by Jeff Flake's grandstanding the other day, he has no morals or values, just like the rest of Republicans. He's only upset that Trump is getting in the way of licking corporations boots efficiently like he hoped would happen when Republicans gained total control. If you need proof, just look at his vote to roll back protections for consumers that stopped corporations from putting stuff in the fine print that would essentially make it impossible for consumers to sue in class action lawsuits. This is the shit they do.

This is why if you pay attention to actual policy and you aren't a psychopathic billionaire, there is no way you turn out republican. The only ones who are republicans ignore it when laws like this are passed. They ignore when republicans roll back internet privacy laws or internet neutrality even when the public overwhelmingly supports it. They ignore when the government takes away people's legal rights to fight back against rich and powerful corporations. They ignore when the Republicans try to take away healthcare from millions of low income Americans to finance a tax cut for the wealthy. Do not be fooled by grandstanding speeches about morals from Republicans, because they have none.

We don't really know the reasons for that though. The power structure in geopolitics is starting to resemble the 19th century and you already see increasing tension between the powers.

The real question is whether nukes have made war too costly, but when we find out that, it's already too late isn't it.

It's called advanced capitalism. Most of the imperialism and warfare that expanded to put entire people's and nations under the heel of higher classes has already been done in history. Why do you think the US has military bases all over? The same reason our goods are produced by the 3rd world. After ww2 States began to integrate the proletariat into a bourgeoise logic through "social democracy" making things appear less brutal, when in fact the nation's that once had wars waged against them more actively are under the heel of a smarter Western counter insurgency. This exists prevent the third world nations from rising against the neo colonialism that comes with organizations like the IMF/world bank. This smarter form of counter insurgency means manipulating world events covertly,drones,puppet wars,secret prisons, funding States who will crush repression to these things, etc. You bet your ass that if someone steps out of line and wanders too far from US interests that bombs will eventually drop though.

TL;Dr things didn't get better or more free. The powers that be just began to rule more intelligently after ww2 after realizing the threats of revolution were always immanent in despotic societies. After the coldwar it advanced even more, to what we see today. A world of slaves shaking hands with their masters. Though that is changing thus the reasoning behind the "return to the brutal 19th century" reactions worldwide.

Got that right, and not only for political purposes. Its amazing how important having a penpal can be when you're behind bars.

Yeah okay, but the war in Afghanistan is the longest US war in history, and the US has been engaged in wars pretty consistently since the close of WW2.

Another reason may be due to the interconnections of the economy now. Also we got dangerously close to MAD a couple times during the Cold War.

Exactly, to get loans from the IMF or World Bank the country had to pass certain policy. If they refused, no loan, and the corporations would take their factories to where a country did obey and there were poor working conditions and few regulations.

>This smarter form of counter insurgency means manipulating world events covertly,drones,puppet wars,secret prisons, funding States who will crush repression to these things, etc.
Sounds like a different kind of war, not between states, but against their people.

The right are the ONLY people who ever say "let's not politicize a tragedy," you ninny. The left simply points out that, per capita, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, and atheists in America are statistically far more likely to be killed by a psychopathic white gun nut than a Muslim extremist.

You're dumb and your arguments are facile and not worth addressing. Your only claim was that 'leftists' imply that Christian victims of mass shootings 'had it coming', which is so obviously fucking stupid that actually gave me a small stroke when I read your post. If anything, its the Right that DESPERATELY latch onto identity politics during violent incidents and say, "SEE! MUSLIMS ARE STILL DANGEROUS, TOLD YOU!" or the even more insane, the future variant "THE SHOOTER LIKED ANTIFA ON FB, BET THE MEDIA WON'T REPORT ON LEFTIST POLITICAL VIOLENCE". Y'all are desparate to avoid actually addressing the causes of acts of mass violence, so y'all always turn it into id politics or the fall back of apolitical thoughts and prayers coupled with a call not to politicize the tragedy. Or, my favorite, THE MENTAL HEALTH BOOGEYMAN OOOOOOOO, while also drastically reducing people's access to mental health care ans voting to ease restrictions on gun purchasing by the mentally ill.

Fuck off dude, you suck.

So yeah, it was Domestic violence. Guy wanted to kill his mother-in-law and decided the best was to light up the church she goes to (but wasn't at the day of the attack)

Also, MORE fun facts. He legally bought all his guns even with a DD because the fucking Air Force never filed the paperwork into the federal system, so it never came up in checks.

Perhaps in Russia there will be a revolution! Cook the popcorn!!! Think about what to do in the future with Russia's nuclear arsenal. After the revolution, Russia will fall into 15 independent republics. Part of the territory will be taken by China (China has already bought part of the territories of Russia). The Kuriles will be seized by Japan.In Russia, people will go against each other! Everything will be very serious. PUTIN MUST DIE !!!

A borderline failed state like Mexico is not comparable to Putin's supreme rule in Russia. In mexico you get disappeared for going against the drug cartels not because you criticised the president (unless its for his relations with drug cartels)

China already has more soft power than Russia and is believed to be encroaching on its sphere of influence. Natural geopolitical rivals as one's power wanes and the other waxes would either accept subservience of result in conflict anyways.

That nuclear arsenal has been fucked for a long time, there was one which was unguarded, holding a massive stock (serious) for a ridiculous amount of time and only discovered because it was intercepted by a foreign gov when (IIRC) the mob tried to sell it and linked back.

This was over dissent not drug mafias. It's not a unique tactic to use powerful mafias to crush dissent either, Mexico didn't invent it and places like Italy and Russia are both guilty of it.

Then people respond with? Things like this. Same riot gear you'd see cops in Russia and America wearing yet the anarchists and demonstrators seem to go way more all out? In Russia if this happened there'd be crickets. In America? Maybe a few liberals yelling "no justice no peace".

I'm not a relativist, just being flippant. You didn't actually respond to the content of my post so it's hard to do much else. But here's a freebie: "multiethnic nationalism that grants rights and protections to its constituent cultural groups without being dominated by them, is actually genocide" is a pretty flimsy take outside the old echochamber. Even normals don't buy that shit. Not saying it can't go places but you need to make it less obviously dumb first. Workshop it a bit.

Nope, that was me. Multi-ethnic nationalism was sort of my main theme there. So I naturally assumed you actually read it, and that's what you were connecting with "genocide." I guess you could be mad at my extremely uncontroversial assertion that cultures necessarily evolve and exist in conversation with one another, but to assume that felt uncharitable. Nevertheless I, too, appreciate your postings, as disconnected and vague as they are. We all have something to contribute, after all.

I'm not mad, but it is understandable that one would assume that with all the passive-aggression typically accompanying political discussions here.
I actually brought up genocide before that in >>398429 (webm) and since your reply to that seamed contrarian in nature i replied to you with "Genocide is bad MKAY" because i assumed that you are advocating genocide by ethnic replacement.
I'm not sure why you brought up multi-ethnics nationalism, the very idea seams wrong since ethnicity is what keeps people together in the first place and having multiple ethnicities in a single country leads to national division and segregation of said peoples into lower and higher castes.
I agree that cultures aren't timeless, static things, but that doesn't mean that multiculturalism should be encouraged or that borders shouldn't be protected.
