They're actually worse then Golden Dawn, which would only ruin the lives of people it disliked, whereas KKE would ruin the lives of people it liked as well.

The KKE are about as threatening as a six year old with a water pistol. Communism is dead and is never coming back: essentially they're just a strange electoral cult. Golden Shower, however, are an actual menace.

This.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't usually think "Stalinist" when I think of "True Leftists."

Left Communists, on the other hand....

William Z. "Bill" Foster (February 25, 1881 September 1, 1961) was a radical American labor organizer and Marxist politician, whose career included a lengthy stint as General Secretary of the Communist Party USA. He passed through the Socialist Party of America and the Industrial Workers of the World, as well as leading the drive to organize the packinghouse industry during World War I and the steel strike of 1919.

A fascinating man and important historical figure.

I question his convictions, since he himself has admitted to "trying different ideologies" like it was a sport.  Like... I'm going to believe THIS today and we'll see how it feels.  Strange to say the least. 

You're not the only one who feels this way.

1882  General Politics / International General Discussion / Mohammed Morsi's trial delayed on: January 08, 2014, 12:38:29 pm
Quote
The Muslim Brotherhood on Wednesday demanded the release of Egypt's deposed president, Mohammed Morsi, after the interior ministry failed to bring him to court for a trial hearing citing "bad weather".

A Brotherhood statement said the claim that fog prevented Mr Morsi being flown by helicopter to a court in Cairo from prison near Alexandria was "risible" and called into question by the weather forecast.

It pointed to repeated concerns about Mr Morsi's whereabouts he is being held separately from the thousands of Brotherhood supporters currently under arrest around the country and has been allowed few visitors since he was detained by his defence minister on July 3.

"It is worrying that President Morsi has not been allowed any visits from families, lawyers or human rights organisations and no one has seen him for over a month," it said.

1887  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Senate narrowly votes to advance jobless aid bill on: January 07, 2014, 02:45:45 pm
Most Republicans voted to filibuster as usual, including some Republicans that some dumbs think are moderates (Kirk, Hoeven, McCain, Shelby, and so on)

Kirk seems to have realized that he is an one-termer. He doesn't even try to moderate his record.  

He probably realizes the media will continue to call him a moderate Republican no matter what he does.

Such is the nature of the Overton Window. A quarter of the country thinks that the president who supports charter schools and corporate tax cuts is a communist dictator, after all.

The same quarter of the country who voted for Mr. Burns/Old Man Potter last year, more or less?

So my best guess, to provoke you, of what's behind all of this is that the largest phenomenon, by far, is the general clash between people's legitimate family desires and employers' current desire for high power and high intensity, that in the special case of science and engineering, there are issues of intrinsic aptitude, and particularly of the variability of aptitude, and that those considerations are reinforced by what are in fact lesser factors involving socialization and continuing discrimination. I would like nothing better than to be proved wrong, because I would like nothing better than for these problems to be addressable simply by everybody understanding what they are, and working very hard to address them.

I like this idea, but it doesn't make much sense in my opinion to rate the suburbs of both San Jose and San Francisco when there's so much overlap.

Yeah, the Bay Area is-or is becoming-one very large metro area.

1896  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Senate narrowly votes to advance jobless aid bill on: January 07, 2014, 12:55:52 pm
Quote
The Senate narrowly voted Tuesday to advance a temporary extension of unemployment benefits to over one million jobless Americans, giving some unexpected momentum in the new year to Democrats and the Obama administration.

The vote to move forward with the legislation was 60-37.  With six Republicans and all present Democrats backing the move to begin formal debate on the bill, supporters reached the 60 votes required to advance it with no room to spare.

The measure, sponsored by Republican Dean Heller of Nevada and Democrat Jack Reed of Rhode Island, would have retroactively restored the federal aid payments to about 1.3 million long-term unemployed Americans that expired at the end of last year. That aid had previously kicked in after state benefits expired, after about 26 months or more in most states.

Five Republicans joined Heller to support moving forward on the legislation -- Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Dan Coats of Indiana and Rob Portman of Ohio. Those lawmakers -- who said they want leaders to find a way to offset the cost of the federal benefits -- may not support final passage of the bill. But their support Tuesday kept the legislation alive despite last-minute doubts that the procedural vote would pass.

1897  General Politics / International General Discussion / Japan, Turkey Plan Talks on Economic Partnership on: January 07, 2014, 12:54:28 pm

Japan and Turkey agreed Tuesday to begin talks on an economic partnership agreement, part of a drive to build closer ties as they also step up cooperation on nuclear technology.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, agreed during talks in Tokyo to launch negotiations on the partnership pact.

The two sides also signed an agreement to set up a science and technology university in Istanbul which is expected to facilitate technology transfers and help Turkey build expertise in nuclear energy. Japan pledged support for the project in May.

Abe and Erdogan also agreed to push for faster approvals for construction of a $22 billion nuclear plant involving Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Areva of France.

1898  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: CNN: 55% favor marijuana legalization on: January 06, 2014, 09:09:48 pm
Is there any other issue where there's such a dramatic disconnect between politicians and regular people? A majority of the country supports legalizing marijuana; I doubt more than ten or twenty Congresspeople do.

Most political issues.

This doesn't align with my personal moral values, so clearly it must be stopped at once.
