You know I never understood that, Evolution is okay when it comes to how we got where we are but to apply it to society now they change the term. They call it social evolution and then call it a bad thing. I’m not here to argue for or against evolution, but since our society in part believes in it shouldn’t we apply it’s principles. After all there is no “end goal” of evolution only temporary pit stops until the next thing comes along. Humans were never the goal of evolution, we are just another pit stop.

But Michael, the more we “get rid of” the poor (like by supporting them), the more we raise the standard of poverty. I heard a commercial the other day for a government program for free cell phones plus 250 minutes a month “for emergencies.” How many emergencies do people have in one month–and why does it take 250 minutes to call 911 (or your mom and give her the address to come get you?) Even though we can afford cell phones, it was a long time before the kids got them–and one is still being shared. My thought: There are… Read more »

the more we “get rid of” the poor (like by supporting them), the more we raise the standard of poverty.

That’s because they redefined “poverty”. What people call poverty these days is relative poverty, not absolute poverty.

I had a discussion last year with a couple of Brazilian academics which wandered into the subject of poverty. Before they got started, I asked them what they meant by poverty. Their reply: “Oh, not what you Europeans call poverty. I mean not having a roof over your head or having enough food to eat.”

Larry, I have been a long time Republican but I just can’t stick with them since they’ve let the crazy fringe take over. All the Tea Party talk of “taxed enough already” and “forcing our children into debt”. I mean, what’s wrong with compromise? This bombastic behavior from the crazies has really put me off. Fox News, Breitbart, Instapundit, Michelle Malkin … if those crazy fascists can be shut down, maybe I’ll come back to the Republican party … that I’ve been with for so long … but until then, I’m just going to have to vote for Democrats across… Read more »

Spoken like a true McCain supporter… I guess you believe we should tax people more. It isn’t enough that almost half of US households get a pass on Federal income tax, we should raise that to 70%+ and just tax those evil rich people who would certainly be dumb enough to sit around and pay rather than leave if they are rich enough. Likewise just tax companies more, that wouldn’t drive more out or raise prices because they support reducing their profits along with their stocks and dividends which then go back into 401ks and expanded employment… If you really… Read more »

I’m still waiting for somebody to point out the obvious fact that health insurance does not equal healthcare. It would also be nice to see something about how (at least until Obamacare really kicks in and we’re all screwed) most people get health insurance from being employed as part of their compensation so reducing the number of unemployed would reduce the number of uninsured and not at tax payer expense. (Especially since the number of uninsured matches pretty closely with the number of people that are unemployed). That isn’t even getting into how badly the government ‘manages’ existing programs. ‘sides,… Read more »

But AdamPM, everybody who lives in Europe/moves to Europe LOVES them some free health care! They all gush about how wonderful it is that it is so affordable! We poor benighted non-Progressive ‘Mericans just don’t know how good it is over there! Why, even in Canada that free health care is so good that anybody who can afford to comes to America to…umm…never mind that, poor people don’t die of lack of health care in Can….umm…never mind.

Yah, I think Moore got a video of Cubans saying how great their healthcare is too. We’ve got a guy in the office who is a big believer in the power of government. It just boggles my brain that he thinks the government taking over industries is a good thing. For the most part he’s a smart guy but for some reason he trusts politicians more than corporations.

@AdamPM You wouldn’t happen to actually have some evidence that BHO is “a smart guy” would you? Perhaps some intelligent speech when off teleprompter? Perhaps a deep understanding of economics? Maybe his admitting the Laffer curve should dictate policy, rather than ‘stick it to the rich’? Anything at all? Anything besides the newsies braying “he’s so smart that I pee down my leg”.

I don’t understand this… Europe is better, Cuba is better, Mexico is better this and that is better. We should make America just like them. If these countries are so much freaking better why are so many people literally risking their lives to come here. The math doesn’t add up either where they come from is better or where they are going is better.
Then again math is based in logic and logic escapes most liberals.

Nope because there are still administrators that need to stay around in the IRS and other places sucking up government money that still doesn’t exist.
Just because no one is “using” the law doesn’t mean that the office that administers it would shut down.

Naw, “poor” is the bottom income category. That’s why our “poor” have obesity problems, as well as difficulty keeping track of their Xboxes and new cars. And their gov’t paid ‘free’ cell phones, too.

steve

I meant to say “the poor” is just the bottom income bracket. If they all died instantly for some reason, the bottom earners of the survivors would become “the poor” even if they all cleared $200K/yr.

That’s how the gov’t defines it. We can never escape having a bottom percentile of earners. It’s statistically impossible.

“being millions in debt don’t [sic] make you rich” Sure it does. Owe the bank ten thousand dollars, and the bank owns you. Owe the bank a hundred million dollars, and you own the bank. No, seriously: either way, the borrower is a liability to the lender, but the lender doesn’t mind treating the low-level borrower like dirt because the lender can suck up the small loss. The big loan is an existential risk if that relationship sours. No bank is going to collapse if someone defaults on a car loan. Any bank can implode if enough mortgages or business… Read more »

And exactly what third world or eurotard socialist shithole do you come from, Jorge? What would really be good for us would be to actually act like the nasty greedy bully that we are accused of being, and use our extreme military superiority to force two bit countries like yours to send us tribute in the form of wealth and slaves, or face nuclear annihilation. Instead of defending countries from terrorism and nasty regimes, we should just throw in the towel, and start using terror ourselves.

Jorge I tried to ignore you lack of knowledge but I can’t. Why don’t most Americans like Universal Healthcare? 1. The government can not run anything efficiently. They have to deal with tons of paperwork just to approve paperwork. They don’t stop fraud which causes waste. They don’t have the knowledge to run what they try to regulate. The adage of those who can do, those who can’t teach applies only those who can’t go into politics or bureaucracy. 2. Universal health care which Obama care isn’t by the way but that’s another issue.

We don’t even have to ‘Be bad guys’. All we need to do is withdraw. Stop giving all these countries money we don’t have in the first place and focus on internal problems for a year or so.

Larry, how is MHI going to cope with the new Obamacare requirements? Obviously they have a “Cadillac” health plan, would you fight werewolves without one! They are going to get some serious tax hits. What about the Orcs? Do they have to sign up for healthcare? DO they have to pay a tax, penalty or such to not be coverred? Are orc shammans licensed service providers?

I think it would be hilarious if they get screwed by more paperwork, but I think it would detract from a novel as a whole. Just because it would seem like filler. Now in a short story could work. Owen is trying to due the new paperwork and the defecation hits the oscillator in or around the compound to distract him. He stops doing paperwork to fight and then dead tired and covered in slim he tries to pass out and someone tells him the paperwork for an exemption is due by 8am tomorrow.

I’m not speaking for NKR, but I wanted to reply. The difference between the left (e.g. Democrats aka Progressives) and the right (e.g. Conservatives) is that the left believes the government knows better than the individual, and should control their lives. The right believes in individual freedom, with as small a government as is necessary. The terms Democrat and Republican are simply political labels, that change over time. The Democrats have been taken over by the Socialists and Communists, and Democrats from 50 years ago would not recognize their party. Unfortunately, the Progressives have managed to also infiltrate the Republicans… Read more »

I’d love for the Republicans to embrace free-market capitalism again. i’d love for them to fight against the progressive machine.

Conservatives are trying to get rid of the Progressives in the Republican Party, while individual Democrats blithely ignore what’s happening in the Democrat Party and simply vote the way they are told.

That’s possibly the dumbest thing that’s been written on the internet today, and I’m including both sides of the international dateline.

For the gun rights discussion, I’ll refer you to 2 separate incidents in American history: theRevolutionary War and The War Between The States (commonly referred to as the Civil War, but inaccurately so-a discussion for another thread.)Both wars were to gain independence from a government that the rebels felt was tyrannical.

A big part of the “protectiveness” we have of the second amendment is due to the fact that there is a very vocal movement, particularly among American liberals, to neutralize or abolish entirely the protections guaranteed by the second amendment. They view guns as inherently dangerous, and feel that no one should be trusted with them. …Except for police, military, and federal agency personnel, of course. One of the outcomes of that view is that it translates to a powerful government making decisions for you and me because it thinks we can’t be trusted to be responsible adults. It also… Read more »

Well you’ve read Larry’s works and you they are from the conservative side. I was shocked and thrilled to see the Feds portrayed the way they are in MHI and Grim Noir. The individualism is also amazing.
You’re probably referring to non fiction though. Enjoy the books pointed out, they are quite good.
