Hurray for liberalism promoting government dependency.
In regards to my Elizabeth Warren reblog from earlier, what does Mrs.Warren think would happen if government loans had no interest rate? What is the function of an interest rate? It is in fact a double incentive. Incentive for the lender who can potentially make money off the transaction and therefore is encouraged to make loans. Incentive for the debtor to pay off the loan asap. A loan without a interest rate is in reality just a handout because there is then no incentive to pay it back quickly or ever. There is only one entity in the world foolish enough to consider such an idea. Government.
Considering adding a little personal info to this blog which up to this point I have tried to keep completely politics centered and devoid of personal data. On some level I worry adding my personal info will detract from the political focus, and yet I worry this blog lacks the personal touch I admire in so many other blogs I follow. One of these days I’ll get around to finishing that theme I’ve been neglecting to finish for 3 years.
I hope I end up being even a tenth as awesome as Elizabeth Warren is when I’ve officially grown up. She is my ultimate spirit animal.
Are you 1/32nd Native American? Well, unless you are, you aren’t going to make it into her league.
Panel #1 - No you don’t have to borrow money. You can work and save, you can work during college to pay your way, as many of our parents and grandparents did, you can pursue community college for a while, you can get scholarships etc. This isn’t a two option scenario. Wealthy parents or crippling debt. The United States of America does not owe you an education.
Panel #2 : Not a good thing to do, never trust a lender who is 17.5 trillion dollars in debt. Why are we lending money to pay for students to go to institutions we subsidize? Dumb, Dumb, Dumb.
Panel #3 : Interest rates on loans? No way! Again refer back to the fact that your loan shark owes people 17.5 trillion dollars.
Panel #4: ELIZABETH WARREN AND I AGREE ON SOMETHING!! However, I also think its obscene for them to make a profit of adults too, ahem, over taxation.
Panel #5 : When did this America exist? Oh right, that is just happy place rhetoric
Panel #6 It fundamentally changed because people like Elizabeth Warren started tampering with peoples lives. I wish this set included her solution to the problem. Somehow I know it involves more government and more redistribution. As always, let government fix the problem government created.
Also can someone please translate this to Cherokee so Ms.Warren can read it?
Funny how many people are for separation of church and state but still want the state to tell churches how to deal with guns.
And what marriage is.
Not to mention those sneaky church folk aren’t paying a portion of their giving as taxes to the state.
I am going to break from the abundance of my fellow conservatives who have made light of Earth day, not because it isn’t justified, because certainly the circus act that is modern day environmentalism deserves a little humor at it’s expense, but instead I am choosing to look at it in a different light.
I appreciate a day devoted to recognizing the awe inspiring majesty of this planet we live on. This is because I see myself as a true environmentalist. Someone who sees this planet as the awesome, self regulating, resilient masterpiece that it is. Someone who has a respect for the greatness of nature in spite of man’s foolishness rather than a fragile little system ever under threat of man-made disaster.
This is no doubt because of my belief that the person who designed this place is far smarter than we are stupid, and furthermore saw in advance every contrivance man would come up with do harm to His work and took measures to engineer it into the design. This is not to say we should not endeavor to be good stewards of the earth, but I am sure it will survive us.
I appreciate Earth Day because I believe that this fantastic spinning orb we live on is far more powerful than we give it credit for and often take for granted.
So take a moment on this Earth Day 2014 to go outside somewhere and look around and truly appreciate where you are in the universe. Take a drive in that fuel guzzling car to somewhere where you can appreciate nature. I guarantee the earth will be alright for it.
You cannot have a right to things that don’t belong to you.
You cannont have a right to another person’s property
You cannot have a right to another persons labor
You cannot have a right to a certain outcome in life
Wrong, wrong, wrong, and wrong.
I think you over thought this one.
What was wrong with what I said?
Nothing! I just think you over-thought what OP meant.
At the core, OP is correct, until you add in factors, which make what you said correct.
Yeah I think we are on the same page here guys
However I might add if a transfer of property is contractually agreed upon by two parties then it becomes your property, but before that contractual agreement you had no right to the property. This also applies to inheritance, inheritance is a transfer of property upon death.
I really hate posting something from my phone and only realizing after it has been reblogged that there was a obvious spelling error.
Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.
(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).
So, what if the same study was conducted with women viewing shirtless men? Would the brain not react in the same way? Zac Efron just had his shirt ripped off on national television and women collectively lost their minds. Perception works two ways.
Men are attracted to scantily clad women? *gasp* and they have unconscious brain activity which corresponds to physical attraction? *double gasp*
In all seriousness, while interesting, keep in mind that we have very basic knowledge of brain function and saying men see women in bikinis as objects based on that basic knowledge is a stretch to say the least.
Come on guys, control your natural cranial responses.Any guy who views women as objects isn’t worth talking about anyway. They are missing out on half of the world.
