Why would have a debate during the season premieres of Big Bang Theory, The Voice, and Fox's new hit show Gotham?

People who watch BBT should not be allowed to vote.

For TNF. Based on likely occupations of the residents of these counties, Hunterdon or Putnam are probably the most guillotine-worthy in the country.

Plenty, albeit most via online databases (and depending on how broad your interpretation of "about Marxism" is--for instance, one of my favorite writings by Trotsky is his analysis of fascism, but does that fit your scope?)

Can we all just take a step back, calm down, and appreciate what a wonderful world we've created when someone can use a phrase like " LeBron's plagiarism accusations" without anyone being remotely confused?

mah guns and weed

Bedstuy's come the closest in this thread (never thought I'd say that!) but yeah, still very (and understandably) simplified. Admittedly I started doing heavy reading of key Marxist text a couple months ago.

I don't recall specifically why I put him on ignore, but I think it was antisemitism.  HP whatever it was.

If Atlas were around 25 years ago you'd be calling TNF anti-white for his views on South Africa.

True Leftists are f[inks]ing insane. I rate them about on the level of teabaggers, and I'm glad that our fine president, with the backing of such FFs as Bernie Sanders, has dedicated his eight years in office to fighting both groups.

Actually, True Leftists would be a lot more useful if they were like teabaggers. Teabaggers succeed by working within the Republican Party and pushing them to the far right, both in terms of actual primaries and based on incumbents' fear of being primaried. On the other hand, True Leftists outright refuse to associate with the Democratic Party in any way, shape, or form, which only marginalizes them. This is a big part of the reason why the Tea Party was (relatively) successful while Occupy Wall Street was a complete dud. The former channeled their energy into realistic political action, the latter just died out without accomplishing a damn thing because of their opposition to working within the established political structure. In addition, continuing with the True Leftist fascination with counterproductivity and cutting off their nose to spite their face, obviously the Democrats aren't going to try to appeal to voters who are just going to write in a dead person the second they deviate from their rigid ideology on anything. Contrast with the Tea Party, which will always vote both in Republican primaries and straight ticket Republican in the general election. Obviously politicians will want to appeal to that group.

Working within the Democratic party would be a good idea if it weren't a complete end. A left-liberal capitalist party is inherently opposed to our goals. I assume you're new to Marxist thought, so use this as a nice starting point for what I've been talking about today.

The twin parties both only support reform within the context of the existing political system. We do not. To quote a chant from the People's Climate March today:

Drop the elephant, drop the ass, build a party of the working class!

FF, even if his support of ISIS is disgusting.

You're resorting to Bush - style "with us or against us"?

Voting for a random third-party leftist for Congress? Interesting development.

I love the idea that Bernie is a radical leftist. Do the Democratic hacks on this forum even understand dialectical materialism?
25  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Israel to set up ghettos for Bedouins on: September 21, 2014, 11:25:32 am
That's a really misleading thing, dumb to say.  There are really legitimate issues when it comes to nomadic people living in a modern country.  I have no idea about this particular village, but Israel does have a problem with bedouins and land rights.  Many bedouins build villages on land they don't own without any building permits or legal right to remain.  Letting people build shacks on land they don't have legal title to is not ultimately a good policy for anyone.  Maybe you Israel haters want this story to be about some secret plan to put all bedouins in ghettos, but that's not at all true.

Because Israel has never built settlements on others' land, right?
