What Exactly Does Righteous Indignation Mean Anyhow

Recommended Posts

what is a government by the people, the T party wasn't some no new tax, or reduce taxation movement, it was something else, so why the name?

Is it a free market capitalism, or is it some libertarian mindset that provoked workers to create workers Unions after people were misused over and over again?

Who talks about not only the Federal Government being in deficit each and every year, now we have a lot of US States that do too as well. States that won't raise any taxes too. Got to have low state taxes to get corporations to come to our state to employ, to employ people, simple folk, people who need work, so they can pay for food.

 

And why would those people ever ask for the government to do anything on their behalf? Isn't it already enough that they make sure that taxation is low enough to spur jobs, jobs that's all. We just want to work. We want to be working. We are all of us inventors, we are all of us, thinking men and women, we, the best of us at least, never even stop to think that someone owes us anything. We don't want to pay no damn taxes, that government, that thing that stops free market capitalism, that thing that regulates with all them laws, it's evil, it's the elitism, all the peacenic what have you that is plaguing free speak, nobody knows why or what fer, so why don't they just all stop?

I think Pat Robertson says it best, Satan, could just be science, Why, Darwin, he was in his own day and in his own way asking for forgiveness.

 

No, taxes. No new public schools. Private prison, private healthcare, Exxon Mobile, jobs, churches, noise, poetry, retirement, pity, war, peace, shame.

 

Education.

 

Wealth.

 

Freedom.

 

Peace! U know, what the heck is that supposed to mean? Sounds like, hooplaaaa...

we are all afraid to just say it, Spongebobsquare pants, we don't understand Krusty Krab burger joints, why we are all stooges, afraid to say to our own sons and daughters, hey, you are just pieces of crap, all just crapped by accident. Nobody says, Hey I know you, I watched you, did all I did because I only felt I was responsible, that's it, you are nothing but a piece of crap, and I say that so you know, I'm only being earnest, and sure, nobody did that for me, but they sure as heck should have, and long long ago, so even though you are a teenager now and probably know a lot more about the world then I did when I was your age, we didn't have computers back then, what we did have was high taxes, inflation, a government filled with stuff we knew little about, hell, you want to discuss civics, you want me to discuss civics, well it had nothing to do with Unions, factory fat cats who just thought that the middle class was so special. So now, you just think we all want you to go to college, that we want you to learn, even though we got nothing, lol we roll our eyes, Social security, ha ha, medicare, ha ha, war we don't feel good about, ha ha.

Algebra, anthropology, sociology, ha ha, ha ha, no one says that aloud to their young twelve year old boy, or nine year old girl. We just pay taxes, higher amounts for gasoline, environmental costs, where is the next job, you build it yourself, Steve Jobs did. Oh yes he did,

even before you knew what a McDonald happy meal was, or what it might cost. You think you have possibility on your own intellect, you think you know who Ghanghis Khan was, well, let me tell you. you don't. You were never the Pearl, just a piece of crap, left by some unknown. And I say this only because I believe in free market capitalism. Just like I work for Exxon Mobile, just like I'm John D, Rockefeller.

 

Peace!

Sorry for the verbose manner here. Seems I'm just asking a lot of questions and verbosely talking about peoples hostility towards taxation. Always, always it is true that people don't like being taxed, they don't like deficits, and they still like things government might do, but do not understand fully who pays for it.

When people don't have a job and someone says it's because job creators are taxed at too high a rate, the discussion seems to end there.

It all comes down to tax rates. Jobs and the middle class are inextricably tied to tax rates, always were, is what some say .

And that's the end of the discussion. Each and every election cycle.

 

Voters, the number of turnouts, has nothing to do with it, nor the people who are truly in power positions in the US Congress are much discussed.

 

The truth is fiction like because a whole host of reasons why, imaginary, or no possibility of changing anything even if you say, might try to change something. IN school, they don't teach changing anything really like they should, I could go on and on, make some point someone somewhere could agree with, too verbose is what I mean. Too many words.

 

Peace!

Sorry for the verbose manner here. Seems seasonal, it is a voting thing, all welled up and no where to go on voting day, and who or what is on the ballot, why sometimes doesn't even begin to weigh in on it. Sometimes usually isn't on the ballot, who votes, I can't say, even why they just might if they will.

What if they all did? Would that make more voters know what they were voting for?

What if what they were voting for made direct sense, like free market capitalism, or perhaps simple laws their local government crafted as if their local government were just a few people who evidently only wanted to govern nobody, they just came together to make laws people could agree on. They didn't wish to upset anyone, it wasn't about power, it was about making life easier, in and out, we should talk resolutely and adhere to the groups wishes/ and not because there is something dark behind it. It

s really about just saying, hey man you shouldn't put your trash in the street, or you shouldn't burn your trash, or people should be allowed to suggest such and such without being called evil, and without any religious context at all behind it.

Peace!

We ain't liberal or conservative, or christian really, and neither are we Jew or Muslim. Nobody is the Corporation. That's right, I said it, nobody is the Corporation, or the government. The Pope is just a figurehead, he has to be, he has to be a male, it comes down to hierarchy, history, language, you know, tools that can be used. Like the KGB, or the FBI, hidden stuff it's better not to think too much about. WE don't say it for that reason. WE can't say it, we don't discuss it because to do so would be dumb.

We talk in edgewise, find someway around it. WE confuse ourselves, we see that but it needs to be that way. Nobody talks about it, there's a lot of reasons why. All kinds of reasons. Money itself has nothing to do with free speech. The pursuit of happiness has nothing to do with money. I know that's true.

 

Peace!

And nobody could ever and should describe what any tax should be shared without knowing exactly why it was enacted, by law, or some reason for any regulation in any government without knowing spontaneously somehow exactly what destruction that taxation, any tax could aspire could lead up to. Libertarian or not. Sorry, didn't make you read any of this, and I find it appalling if you did take away from it my own intellectual freedoms by reading such nonsense. And BTW, no big words were shown. I don't have them and it shows.

 

Peace!

The new Tea Party makes no sense historically, but that shouldn't surprise you -- neither does their co-opting of protest techniques and rhetoric from the Civil Rights movement. Neither does Fox and Clear Channel's redefinition of right, center and left. Neither does their breathtaking misuse of socialist and fascist make any political sense. They're coopting the language of the left and stripping it of meaning so that we won't be able to use it as easily. Hitler did the same thing with the word socialism, for example, as he said in this interview in The Guardian. Thomas Frank has been calling them on this gutted hijacking of other people's language for the past fifteen years, from The Baffler to What's the Matter with Kansas?

 

Everyone else calls them the Tea Party, but I call them "Dare to Be Illiterate."

 

(And BTW: Citing Hitler or the Nazis for a specific reason is not what Godwin's law was created to discourage -- senseless hyperbole was the object. Besides which, Godwin is just a guy on the internet. He's not a venerable source of pointers on the viable structuring of an argument. You can always read Corbett's Classical Rhetoric for that.)
