"Tea Party" in Grand Junction, CO - April 15, 2009

Welcome to the new media, folks! No doubt this blog will be a bit different than the average establishment media version of the story: the opinion of a actual "grassroot" individualist versus establishment spin designed to strengthen your faith in the established pecking order. [Click on photos to enlarge]

I'm no expert at estimating crowds, but my brother David and I guessed there were about 2500-3000 people who attended the local tax-revolt "Tea Party" in Grand Junction, CO.

Nobody knew how many people would assemble at Lincoln Park. Yesterday the local establishment propaganda rag, er, "journal of record", did quote one guy who said anywhere from 500 to 5000 people might show up. It also wrote an editorial which I included so you could read the comments for local flavor. Here is the story they ran today, again, so you can read the comments for local flavor. And here is the accompanying slide show (a nice feature) by Gretel Daugherty. Check out the cool photos she took.

I got to the park about ten minutes early, thinking I might be able to find a parking spot somewhere inside the park. Silly me! I had to park more than two blocks away. People were everywhere. It looked like there were more of them trying to get to the party than the pictures I took indicate were actually assembled at the gazebo just southwest of the pool and waterslide. [I loved the Nancy Pelosi sign on the left, just click on the picture to see a closeup.]

I found it amusing that Neil Cavuto mentioned only "40 'Tea Party' Protests Today Against Bailouts and Gov't Waste". Cavuto said, to the folks he was interviewing, "I don't see the throngs, I don't see the type of rallies that are just saying, you know, 'we're mad as hell, we're not going to take it any more.'" Hey Neil, baby, take a look at the Grand Junction rally - 3000 in a small town! I consider Neil merely an establishment talking head pretending to be "conservative" — he could hardly keep his job with "globalist" billionaire Rupert Murdock if that were not true.

I just got started on Twitter, and here's an example of why it has already become my #1 news source. I follow an eclectic group of 165 bright people, among them Karl Rove, who tweeted a link to some very interesting polling information regarding Americans' opinions about paying taxes.

In contrast to Cavuto's lukewarmness, Rush Limbaugh was on a roll: "So the liberals, who love the common man, the ['tolerant', oh so 'tolerant' - JRW] liberals, the American left, tell us daily, weekly, monthly, they are the ones looking out for the little guy, they now have to use every weapon at their command, from NBC, to the New York Times, to the Obama database, to the Twitter crowd, to mock, smear, and trash what is real democracy. What is real democracy is occurring in 50 states, in 500 different locations, and the American left, standing for the little guy, protecting the little guy from the onslaught of disaster. They have to go out and destroy these people, to mock them, to smear them, to trash them, because it is real democracy, it is the expression of individual liberty and freedom and the clamor for more, which is upsetting to no end to Barack Obama, the Democrat Party, and the American left. You want to do a Million Man March, no problem. You want to have a MoveOn protest or Code Pink panties showing up at any congressional hearing room, no problem, ditto. You want Cindy Sheehan and her two dozen protesters outside Bush's house. No problem. That's democracy at work. You want the Democrat Party urging defeat for the US military, echoed by the Drive-By Media, that's fine, that's democracy at work. But real people getting together because of real issues that frighten them and alarm them about the security that they feel they're not going to have in the future and the very structure of their country, let that happen, oh, no, that is not to be tolerated. That is to be destroyed."

In direct contrast to Limbaugh is Ralph D'Andrea, an acquaintance of mine who runs the JunctionDailyBlog, a "left"-leaning blog. Now, bear in mind, Ralph would probably be either 1) utterly incompetent to discuss the historical FACTS contained on this website, or 2) pretend that they were stupid and politically irrelevant when they are neither. Although he may not realize it, Ralph is quite an ad hominem kind of guy, if a little too "egg-shellish" for my tastes. But he's basically a decent hard-working family man (his wife and daughter are really nice), bright, trained in geology, a computer programming geek, ham radio buff, astronomy buff, fly fisherman, amateur musician, who knows what else, and writes well. I especially like it that, to use his words, he "turns over rocks". He is an exemplary "good-citizen" local policy wonk, something I just can't find interesting enough to keep up with other than via Ralph's blog. I use him for my "liberal" barometer instead of trying to keep up with the real jerks of the world, like James "Snakehead" Carville, et al. You'll get a laugh out of Ralph. I did. In his blog titled "Taxes and Services", he said, "A crowd of people who would apparently rather pay George Bush tax rates than the lower Barack Obama tax rates gathered at Lincoln Park today to whine. I'm not going to ridicule them. I think that carrying signs is a much better outlet for right-wing nutcases than, say, shooting cops in Pittsburgh. Or worse."

What a hoot! I'd hate to see what Ralph would write if he actually intended to ridicule somebody! Oh, that's right, my bad. He just said "ridicule", he didn't say "demonize", so I suppose that makes his not-so-subtle demonizing B.S. fair in his eyes. As far as Ralph posting Janet Napolitano's bonehead report on the dangers of "right wing extremism", Ralph acts as if he believes anybody actually gives a damn what the alphabet-soup Big Brother Gestapo agencies think or say. Sure, Ralph, and there's a tooth fairy, too!

To get a load of a real "liberal" moron, a real hater, take the case of fascist control freak Susan Roesgen, a "Jane, you ignorant slut" (apologies to SNL's Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin) type of reporter for CNN. Watch her harass a tea party attendee. I would love to interview illiterate airhead Susan and have her respond to the historical FACTS on this website. She's spoiled-brat disordered manipulative scum1 in my book. But, not to fear, Susan gets her lunch eaten on YouTube by a cool black business owner and blogger ("Wake Up Black America") named Tyrone. But I digress.

Like so many other politicians2, Limbaugh3 is great at making you think he's on the "conservative" side. But what he's mostly world class at is ridiculing liberals (who SO richly deserve every bit of it). But will he talk about the REAL problem, how bankers create the U.S. monetary supply out of thin air and then charge the government interest (the "national debt") FOR THE USE OF ITS OWN CURRENCY? Will he talk about the blatant, provable unconstitutionality of our monetary and tax structures? Nah! No way! That's supposedly "too esoteric" for the "little people" to whom Rush constantly lies by telling them how smart they are — just not smart enough to be able to understand how the monetary and tax structures work.

Politicians2, especially local ones, love to try to jump out in front of spontaneous grassroots movements like the tea parties and pretend they're on your side leading the movement. Our local politicians are no different. County commissioners Janet Roland and Craig Meis are no different.

In fairness to Rowland, I didn't find a parking spot in time to hear the beginning of her speech, but the part I heard was standard politician blather.

Craig Meis was actually quite funny. He said he wasn't attending in his "government capacity", he was attending as a "taxpaying citizen". Then he talked about how he wasn't a very good politician, but he was a "good engineer" and a "great father". Typical meaningless politician blather. I'm curious as to how so many of my species manage to look to these types (the DEMS are worse) of clowns for leadership! I suspect the old adage is true: we tend to get the "gubmint" we deserve.

The two other speakers I heard were lawyer/blogger Rick Wagner and Aurora city councilman, Ryan Frazier. Both men's speeches were good considering the fact they were run-of-the-mill "freedom is better than slavery", "the children are our future", "children first", "the sun's coming up in the morning", "the sky is blue and the birds are chirping", "little government is better than big government", "lower taxes are better than higher taxes", "I am one of you", "I agree with the Founding Fathers", "I believe in God, mom, and apple pie", "keep hope alive", "change you can believe in" (ad infinitum) speeches. I would give the edge to Ryan Frazier's speech for intensity and excitement. He definitely evoked the strongest crowd response.

Call me racist if you insist on being lying scum1 (see also Harry and Nancy), but the liberals and race hustlers have focused so long and hard on the Jesse Jerkson4 types, and have such a long and disgraceful track record of either ignoring black conservatives altogether, or demonizing them as "Uncle Toms", "House Negroes", "race traitors", or "self-hating", that I can't help but find it exciting every time I hear an eloquent black person speak who sounds like s/he believes in individual freedom, hates collectivism and socialism, and doesn't want a "gubmint" handout. Judging from the roars of applause for Frazier, I'd say most of the crowd would agree with me on that point.

Unfortunately, you will NEVER hear "establishment" people, whether "left", "right", or "center" talking openly and honestly about the subjects at hand, systemic corruption (such as judicial lying about the Constitution) and the blatant provable unconstitutionality of America's current monetary and taxation structure. They also won't talk about things like the JFK assassination coverup, the MLK assassination coverup, the TWA 800 coverup, or 911 being an inside job. They have a vested financial interest in political power and the illiteracy and ignorance of the hoi polloi laboring "masses" in the areas of economics, politics and law. After all, if labor wasn't ignorant, naive and gullible, it wouldn't choose to be labor. Would it? If the subject classes weren't ignorant, naive and gullible, they would choose to be the rulers/shearers in preference to being the "rulees"/shorn. Wouldn't they?

Maybe some of this stuff is that the "tea party" attendees are angry about.

Take pity on the left as it grapples with the tea party revolt, by Matt Kibbe - ReasonOnline - "Judging from the left's hysterical reaction, something really big must have happened. But the only way to really understand the left's misinformed and paranoid attacks is to realize that the protests represent tangible proof that basic libertarian values continue to resonate with the American electorate. That, apparently, is a difficult thing for some to accept."

Economy shrinks at worse-than-expected pace - Compare the rah-rah propaganda headline, "Consumer spending gain provides hope for rebound", with the actual substance of the story: "The economy logged a worse-than-expected 6.1 percent annualized drop in the first three months of this year despite the rebound by consumers, the Commerce Department reported. The culprits behind the poor overall performance: sharp cutbacks by businesses, especially to inventories of unsold goods, and the biggest drop in U.S. exports in 40 years. The decline was nearly as sharp as in the final three months of last year. That's when the economy shrank at a 6.3 percent pace, the worst showing in a quarter-century. The biggest pullback by consumers in 28 years figured prominently in downward spiral."

Phoenix home prices are down 51 percent from their peak - "Phoenix home prices fell 35 percent from February 2008 to February 2009, according to the new S&P/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index. That’s the largest decline of any of the 20 largest cities in the U.S."

Cool, huh?! Ya gotta love it! - JRW

China calls for reform of global monetary system - "China called Sunday for reform of the global currency system, dominated by the dollar, which it said is the root cause of the global financial crisis. 'We should attach great importance to reform of the international monetary system,' Chinese Vice Finance Minister Li Yong told the spring IMF/World Bank Development Committee meeting in Washington. A 'flawed international monetary system is the institutional root cause of the crisis and a major defect in the current international economic governance structure,' Li said, according to a statement."

'The longer this goes on, the longer and the deeper will be the recession,' IMF chief economist Olivier Blanchard told a news conference . . . 'A key concern is that policies may be insufficient to arrest the negative feedback between deteriorating financial conditions and weakening economies in the face of limited public support for policy actions,' the IMF said."

David Kellermann, Acting Freddie Mac CFO "commits suicide" - "Freddie Mac released this statement about Kellermann's death:
'The Freddie Mac family is truly saddened by the news this morning of David Kellermann's death. We extend our deepest condolences to David's family and loved ones for this terrible personal tragedy.'David was a man of great talents. He dedicated those talents to Freddie Mac for more than 16 years, serving in many business and finance capacities before recently taking the reins as acting chief financial officer. His extraordinary work ethic and integrity inspired all who worked with him. But he will be most remembered for his affability, his personal warmth, his sense of humor and his quick wit. David was a friend to many in the Freddie Mac family, and we mourn his passing.'"

Bank bailout may hurt taxpayers, be open to fraud - Washington Times - "Taxpayers are increasingly exposed to losses and the government is more vulnerable to fraud under Obama administration initiatives that have created a federal bank bailout program of 'unprecedented scope,' a government report finds. In a 250-page quarterly report to Congress, the rescue program's special inspector general concludes that a private-public partnership designed to rid financial institutions of their "toxic assets" is tilted in favor of private investors and creates 'potential unfairness to the taxpayer.'"

Following are two FoxNews "tea party" videos for contrast, one intelligent and the other unintelligent. They are separated by a video about Silvio Gesell. In the first "tea party" video, the intelligent one, Dick Army is 100% correct in his assessment that John Maynard Keynes himself would have been opposed to the "voodoo- economics" BS the steal-and-redistribute DEMS are trying to pull. Check out Keynes' approving reference to Gesell's Theory, found in Silvio Gesell's most famous book, "The natural economic order: A plan to secure an uninterrupted exchange of the products of labor, free from bureaucratic interference, usury and exploitation". Also check out the video about Silvio Gesell.

Dick Armey and Sean Hannity Talk Tea Bags and John Maynard Keynes

Silvio Gesell (John Maynard Keynes agreed with him)

Gesell is a little too fancy for me. I agree with Gresham's Law that "Where legal tender laws exist, bad money drives out good money". In other words, "A currency that is artificially overvalued by law will drive out of circulation a currency that is artificially undervalued by that law." That's why, with such brilliant economists as Ludwig von Mises, Frédéric Bastiat, Friedrich Hayek, Murray Rothbard, etc, I believe in non-legal-tender commodity mediums of exchange which have a commensurate amount of human effort inextricably attached to their production. Contrary to systemic judicial lying, it is a provable historical fact that the Founders agreed with me on that point. It is also a provable historical fact that the Constitution has never been amended in accordance with Article V to make today's fraudulent monetary and tax structures constitutional. That's just a neat little checkmate "zinger" against all the arrogant, opinionated and illiterate blowhards on both "left" and "right" who pretend to give a damn about "due process" and the "rule of law"!

As the above-mentioned economists point out, ultimately, after all the self-serving political blather and suffering, socialism is impossible because REAL prices cannot be known outside of a coercion-free market economy comprised of VOLUNTARY sellers and buyers. Demand cannot be known without prices, and command (as opposed to market) economies destroy the natural information function of prices and inevitably lead to totalitarianism and serfdom as disordered power mongers desperately try to "fix the economy" by exercising more and more State control/coercion, which, in turn, only makes the problem worse and worse. THAT'S why we're witnessing all the blather and hassle over the pricing of "toxic" assets, as the narcissistic criminal scum in Congress secretly give away trillions of dollars to their favored banker friends at taxpayer expense. See e.g., the comments of Nobel Prize-winning economist Joe Stiglitz.

I've got some bad news for my economically illiterate friends on both "left" and "right": it ain't about taxes and redistribution. It's about the creation of money out of thin air, and the disastrous reciprocal-justice-destroying social consequences resulting directly from the circulation of that nebulous, unmeasurable, fluctuating coercion-based, debt-based fiat garbage throughout the economy. And in that specific regard, Obama is every bit the corporate lackey that W ever was. In fact the "globalist" money masters probably like Obama better because he has more charisma and is more influential with economic illiterates. Wake up folks! The DEMS and the GOP are heads and tails of the same evil coin!

Fox News reports on tax-day "tea parties"

Axelrod suggests 'Tea Party' movement is 'unhealthy' - CNNPolitics.com - "Axelrod was asked on CBS's 'Face the Nation' about the 'spreading and very public disaffection' with the president's fiscal policies seen at the 'Tea Party' rallies around the country last week. 'I think any time you have severe economic conditions there is always an element of disaffection that can mutate into something that's unhealthy,' Axelrod said.
Axelrod appeared to backtrack when pressed on whether the movement is unhealthy. 'Well, this is a country where we value our liberties and our ability to express ourselves, and so far these are expressions,' he said."

Their story hit a nerve. There was a lively comment thread on the paper's Web site, with more than 300 [now 426 - JRW] people writing in. 'They look pretty happy to me,' said a commenter. 'My husband and I are making some of the same decisions.' Another: 'I don't know if this is so much survivalism as a return to common sense.'

Pirate Bay convictions are a conflict-of-interest farce: trial judge is a member of copyright protection organizations! - "Judge Tomas Norstrom acknowledged to Swedish Radio that he was a member of The Swedish Association for Copyright, as well as a board member of the Swedish Association for the Protection of Industrial Property. He also said he has worked alongside Monica Wadsted, who represented the American movie industry in the trial, to solve disputes related to Internet domain names. However, he rejected that there was any conflict of interests. 'I don't think there are any circumstances that have made me biased in this case,' he said. Sunde — the Pirate Bay spokesman — called the judge's links to the copyright groups 'quite remarkable,' and told AP the case had turned into a 'farce.'"

Pirate Bay founders defy year's jail sentence and order to pay £2.5 million - TimesOnline - " . . . On the Twitter website, Mr Sunde Kolmisoppi said: 'Nothing will happen to TPB [The Pirate Bay], this is just theatre for the media. It used to be only movies, now even verdicts are out before the official release. You can view this as a TV series. This is the last episode in the first season with a cliffhanger. This will be continued. 'We are the heroes. We cannot, nor will pay [the damages]. Even if I had the money, I would have burnt it rather than pay.' Per E. Samuelsson, Mr Lundström’s lawyer, said: 'This is a justice scandal of the biggest kind. The prosecutor leads with one to nil. We will, of course, appeal.' Lawyers for the four men had argued that no copyrighted material was actually stored on Pirate Bay’s servers and no swapping of files took place there. The site’s legal adviser, Mikael Viborg, stated that because 'Torrent' files and trackers merely pointed to content, the site’s activities were legal under Swedish law. "


1. As I said in footnote 3 in a previous blog,(it bears constant repetition): Regarding the words "scum" and "scumbag" as an epithet used in self-defensive demonization against select individuals. Hey, what can I say? It is a long-proven statistical fact that negative political ads work. And since the so-called "left" uses lies, half-truths, demonization and the politics of personal destruction as standard political strategies, failure to engage in a little "turn about is fair play" merely makes it easier for the various assortments of disordered illiterate fascist control freaks to destroy individual freedom. As I said on my blog homepage, "Some folks just think they're smarter than everybody else, a higher form of life than everybody else. So, instead of engaging in good faith discussions about specific ideas, they simply resort to deception, sophistry, unspecificity, undefined terms, manipulation, demonization and the politics of personal destruction AS A MATTER OF PREFERRED STRATEGY to get their little spoiled-brat control-freak way. Such behavior is anathema to intellectual honesty, an open mind, a kind heart, free inquiry, the freedoms of thought and speech, and the free flow of information. It MUST be eternally warred against if humankind is to entertain a realistic hope of ever reaching its full spiritual and intellectual potential." To avoid the violence which is directly related to repression of free speech and the crushing of polite and civil discourse, I believe it is essential to engage in strategic tit-for-tat with wannabe-clever manipulative demonizers by openly calling them what they are: the anti-freedom, anti-Golden-Rule scum of the earth (aka "scumbags"). Accordingly, it doesn't bother me in the least to do so. No less brilliant a person than Jesus of Nazareth himself referred to the scumbags of his day as "hypocrites", "blind guides", "vipers" and "whitewashed sepulchres". To paraphrase Ann Coulter, Jesus was not some moron driving around in a Volvo with a "be nice to people" bumper sticker on it. So, having read The Art of Political War and Other Radical Pursuits by David Horowitz, I don't have any problem with calling "scum" what it is.

2. Always remember, "politics" = person or group A trying to persuade person or group B to obey the will of A, most frequently for the personal financial benefit of A and to the personal financial detriment (higher taxes) of B. That is why deception = the so-called "art" of politics. That is also why "politician" = professional deceiver, and why "political" = deception-based, or having to do with deception. Everybody is competing for political power to steal labor and money out of the "other guy's" pocket and put it in their own. Politicians get votes by promising to be all things to all people. Because that is a physical impossibility, most of their promises of necessity get broken. Because they know this in advance, they are ALL liars to one degree or another. The king is always the most corrupt person in the kingdom. After all, the first two kings of Israel, Saul and David, were murderers. In my opinion, any person who sincerely wants to be the king is criminally insane and an implacable deadly enemy to individual freedom.

3. Before all you Limbaugh fans take after me with baseball bats and pitchforks, instead of doing that, why not pull your heads out and consider a couple of facts you may not have thought about carefully enough before. Limbaugh is an entertainer, a comedian, a master of talk radio, and a world-class "lib" basher, but by no stretch of the imagination is he an educator or truth seeker. The reason why not is because Rush Limbaugh along with most of the other "right wing" radio talkers, while they hate money-monopoly "socialism" and money-monopoly "communism", fail to understand the Economics-101-based REALITY that money-monopoly communism, money-monopoly socialism, money-monopoly collectivism, money-monopoly fascism, and money-monopoly capitalism are all one and THE SAME THING. They are all one and the same reciprocal-justice-destroying, anti-individual, anti-Golden-Rule EVIL.

That Nature is INHERENTLY a free market is a simple, empirically observable and empirically provable cause-and-effect universal FACT. Individual humans have inherent free will, and an inherent survival need for self-ownership and self-determination. We will buy what we please, work at what we please, eat what we please, believe what we please, and associate with whom we please. Only social-engineering, control-freak, solve-all-the-world's-problems-with-the-other-guy's-money "libs" are stupid enough and/or disordered enough to think they can overcome the economic laws of Nature with deception and coercion.

When humans trade, they trade REAL THINGS which have a commensurate amount of human effort attached to their production. In a free marketplace 100% devoid of coercion, willing sellers and willing buyers all have a fairly realistic idea of how much labor the "other guy" has invested in the product or service he is trading. Unfortunately, that same understanding and awareness does not exist when it comes to money. Mass ignorance reigns worldwide. It's not for nothing that Jesus said you can't serve God and money at the same time. When you believe in a monetary unit, you have confused an illusion for reality at that very point. Money only works FAIRLY when it is a commodity which has a commensurate amount of human effort inextricably attached to its production, so it can be traded for REAL THINGS which also have a commensurate amount of human effort inextricably attached to their production.

The free market, not legal-tender coercion, should decide what the people want to use for money. As Thomas Paine correctly said, "The laws of a country ought to be the standard of equity and calculated to impress on the minds of the people the moral as well as the legal obligations of political justice. But tender laws, of any kind, operate to destroy morality, and to dissolve by the pretense of law what ought to be the principle of law to support, reciprocal justice between man and man; and the punishment of a member [legislator - JRW] who should move for such a law ought to be DEATH."

It is a completely unsustainable paradigm/model to give one person or group (or cartel/cabal) the power to create political debt-money out of thin air. Thanks to INHERENTLY EVIL legal tender laws, unless you are the lucky owner of the magic money machine, you have to trade your time, education and labor for the phony money with which to buy real things. The owner/s of the magic money machine don't have to do that. They simply create out of thin air how ever much money they need to buy whatever they want (and need in order to stay in possession of Power), including elections, politicians, welfare handouts, military hardware, military force and war. The owners of the magic money machine couldn't care less what the "government" borrows money for, whether it's welfare handouts or military weaponry. They only care about collecting the interest on the "national debt". They don't care who makes the laws, but they will fight to the death over who gets to ADMINISTER the laws (judges), because they know that the law is whatever those who administer it say it is.

It doesn't matter what you call your political system, "capitalism", "socialism", "communism", "fascism", "new age-ism", "environmentalism" — whatever — the person or group who controls the magic money machine will always own and control the lives of everyone else. Once you have given away the money-creation power, as a corrupt Congress did in 1913 when they created the FED/IRS, once that hideous genie of tyranny is outside of the bottle of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, it is all but impossible to get your freedom back from the fascist neo-feudalistic scum who stole it. The only possible way is through culture-wide mass education as to Economics 101 and what the truth actually is, what the economic laws of Nature actually are, and what the historically accurate intent of America's Founders was. Of course that's a tall order when "gubmint" schools, "gubmint" media, and "gubmint" 501(c)(3) churches systematically dumb children down in the areas we're discussing here, and when, as Antonin Scalia has pointed out, willful judges routinely lie and unilaterally change the social contract (the Constitution) via "interpretation" (aka lying).

Because Congress had the USURPED political power to create the FED/IRS monster, they also have the political power to abolish it, but as a group, they are FAR too intellectually dishonest, greedy and corrupt to do that. They're not about to give up the power and the perks. And the huge majority of voters are not about to give up their ignorant, gullible, and naive trust in the "liberal" and "conservative" lies and false promises Congress markets to the voters in order to retain power and steal their labor. They are not about to give up their hope of living off the labor of the "other guy". It is a vicious circle that CANNOT be changed collectively. It can only be changed morally, spiritually and intellectually, one heart and mind at a time, which is what this website is all about. Thank God for the Internet!

4. I absolutely despise the deliberately sophist polemic tactics of racist race hustlers like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and their white liberal patrons. They can't (or refuse to) discuss economic theories without bringing race into it. The standard conversational tactics of these types of scumbags goes something like this:

"I am black (a woman, a homosexual, take your pick) and I am by definition a victim because straight white males between the ages of 18-55 are by definition racist (misogynistic, homophobic, take your pick) perpetrators. Everything is Whitey's (Man's, Homophobe's, take your pick) fault, so give me your money, Whitey, or you're a racist (misogynist, homophobe, take your pick). If you disagree with me that steal-and-redistribute "trickle-up-poverty" socialism is a wonderful economic theory, you're a racist (misogynist, homophobe, take your pick). Now what was it you wanted to have a meaningful intellectually honest discussion about, Whitey?!" This type of manipulative racist scum are the REAL haters who make hate necessary precisely because they make intellectually honest conversation impossible. Does their ilk give a damn about the damage they are doing to the social fabric, reciprocal justice (the Golden Rule) and the moral, spiritual and intellectual potential of our species? Nah! No way! That would be "thinking white"!
