Can we ask Lefties not to make every argument a Race, Class or Gender Descrimination based attack?
So unless the Left can couch the issue as a "War on Women", "War on Hispanics" or "War on Minorities", there should be no mention of race or gender at all from Righties, eh?If you or any tea bagger wants to have an honest conversation about the merits of welfare and need for reform and how to stop welfare abuse, fine do so. But leave the race out of it. Perhaps you can. But i doubt the tea baggers can.
Double Standard Much?
First the racist term "Po' White Trash". Nice Psudo-ebonic there with the "Po'" I should add.tea bagger
Now an insulting term describing your enemies as "teabaggers", i.e. people who put their testicles-on-face. You're not going to claim ignorance to the terms meaning, are you Ken, or use the old excuse that "thast what they called themselves" are ya? Yeah, you probably will.
You're as bad as the woman in the video yourself. I sense real, honest, hatred from you towards some of us.
BTW Ken, Nice red herring! Medicare and S.S. ARE NOT welfare programs. The leeches have put NOTHING in.
Social security is socialism.
Taxing property and spending it on schools is a redistribution of wealth.
Don't run from it. There's a difference between socialism and communism, as well as distinction from degrees of socialism, a society can have a robust social safety net or a scaled back version, both socialism - but at greatly different cost and degrees of shared burden.
Basically, don't let them dictate to you that socialism is a bad word or that we don't already have it. The argument is about degrees, kinda like the old joke "Would you sleep with me for 100$? How about a million dollars?" To which the woman first responds no, then yes to the second, and you say "Good, now we know what you are, we're just negotiating on price".
In fact, I'm MUCH more flexable than you may think when it comes to a DEGREE of socialism in our culture/system.
On this, we will disagree. It's helped some, and it's hurt many as well.Judging by our history, it's largely worked.
kenny, I thought you only hated Jews... Why don't you just call us all crackers and honkeys and go on about your day?
And when you say you agree on "matter of degree", I am encouraged by that - yet at the same time, you throw around the word communist a lot, which I think is an erroneous substitute for socialism many of the times you've used it.
How about stop using tax dollars to fund public schools. Let the parents pay the real dollar amount. Let them see how much they are getting ripped off for.
The poor who are unable to pay should get government help that is only fair.
But their parents are legally held responsible for their children.
The real cost of education in this country are salaries(20%) but heathcare and retirement are the killer let them setup their own 401K's.
Sound fair to you. Possibly simplistic but do able.
