I have a feeling she didn't read the thing before signing.

Only a fool signs anything before reading something non-routine. President Barack Obama has a degree from an honest-to- Oliver Wendell Holmes law school, and he would never make that mistake.

O RLY.

I find restricting comparisons to Nazis more repugnant than the comparisons to Nazis themselves. But then again I love freedom and hate fascism, so maybe it's just me?

Eh...I would compare you to a ham-handed incompetent authoritarian that drove one of the best countries in Latin America into the ground, but you put him in your sig so you appear to be proud of that.

I think we'd all rather have Hero of the Revolution Hugo Chavez in charge here than the gang of little Hitlers currently running things.

Maybe Lief (like opebo) isn't smart enough to create his own, Hitler free message board?  Could someone give him a hand?  Please?!

Lief and opebo don't have any original content to offer.  I doubt any of us would be here without the rest of the Atlas site.

It's still rather frustrating when you consider how many people with far better work histories than Jeff have to spend months or years unemployed before they finally get an offer.

I'll have you know that I've created many a message board in my day. But I love Atlas, and will never abandon it, especially not in its hour of need, as it consumed from within by fascism, tyranny, and etc.

What is worse in this thread: the ridiculous op or the criminal coddlers? I sincerely hope that my cousin's murderer is not enjoying himself or freaking collective bargained.

maybe he's a shop steward.  more seriously : when we are impacted personally our desire for vengeance goes way up, naturally.  is not the point of a liberal state to remove this id-force and create a neutral arbiter to deal with, among other things, unfortunate situations such as murder?  your cousin will never live again, regardless of whether or not his killer is currently watching television in air conditioning or toiling 70 hour weeks in some forced sweatshop, nor is it likely that such a juxtaposition entered his mind before he decided to settle whatever score he settled.

My cousin was a very pretty 26 year old women, who died because she was viciously beaten and her liver collapsed amongst several other organ failures.  I don't need to be lectured on how she will never be back or how whatever punishment will also not do that.  Also forgive me if I don't care for the plight of these type who do not have enough rec time. Actions have consequences. He erased her future and he should live a shallow existence.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Since liberals can't understand anything that isn't in anecdote form, I'll explain this rather simple concept with a metaphor.

Raising taxes is like taking King's paycheck/welfare check/allowance (not sure which, most likely the third), and telling him that instead of spending it on useful, self-improving, productive things, he can only spend it on cheeseburgers and cheap pot.  Writ large, it is immensely damaging to the economy.

(oh, wait...)

Since Libertarians can only speak in idealism that has no practical application and disregards current events, I'll restate my post in the following manner:

Across the pond is not you,
They drink your milkshake.

I entirely understand (and share) the desire to get rid of him, but why don't you guys just do that, then? Surely there has to be consensus on this issue in the mod squad by now? It just feels like he's being kept around as some sort of punching bag.

We can't just do that. Unlike what you seem to think we're not a band of thugs...

You're not?

If we were a band of thugs you would probably be supporting us.

Is it wrong to answer this question with 'North Wales'?

It isn't 'wrong', but seriously you should get someone to put you in their rucksack and take you thither and yon little man.

Arguably, but I think he was aiming for the Naso Institute.

That part was hard to follow in my original post. I will try to be a more clear and concise writer. My apologies.

It's entirely unsurprising that the Nazis came to power in Germany and not some other country.
