World's biggest crybaby.....



I'm sorry, I just find this utterly hilarious. And this guy was an aide to Ron Paul? No surprise there. Here's more from this mustachio'd babyman:

"I strongly urge all other libertarians to do the same. Are you married to someone who voted for Obama, have a girlfriend who voted 'O'. Divorce them. Break up with them without haste. Vow not to attend family functions, Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas for example, if there will be any family members in attendance who are Democrats."

3. What "Libertarians" are pushing is a prescription for SLAVERY. They refuse to admit this, so they

are NOT to be trusted.

They pretend that all of the systems are much simpler than they really are, so nothing like internally emergent regressions will get going on, the clearly probable result of which will be LOSS OF VALUE(S) to their economies & that's even worse than it sounds, because you're going to lose values that you can't even identify before you lose them & that fact puts the whole objective at a high probability of fail. Instead of promoting the best amongst us, it will only promote the most powerful at the expense of the loss of VALUES that manifest the actual concrete abilities & potentialities that produce SURVIVAL.

Libertarians are liars, or profoundly naive/ignorant, and CAN'T be trusted.

16. Most Libertarians are profoundly, willfully ignorant

They simply refuse to believe that there is anything wrong with the fundamental structure of capitalism and any problems that it has are the result of the government, not the corporations themselves. In this sense, they are every bit as fanatical and delusional as the teabaggers, just without all the religious bullshit.

18. The self-titled "Libertarians" I know are actually republi-CONS too chicken to admit that.

They think if they call themselves "Libertarians" instead, that act of merely re-naming themselves somehow is their free Get-Out-Of-Jail card. To me, it just means they're chicken-shits, who are starting to realize, deep-down, that the ideas they've held dear are anything BUT.

20. It'd be funny were it not so sad that they are so essence -tially enslaved & like Eric CAN'T see it.

I really do speculate that there's this big physical buzzzzzzzzzzzzzz on that people get from ideology and they mistake that for something much greater/more-real than it is.

Also, the problem of how to guide by one's own lights (ideology, belief, motives, desire, wants, "the spirit", or whatever ... ) relative to "otherness" ("externalities", reality, difference, contradiction, alternative hypotheses, or whatever ... ), that problem selfther is avoided, feared, demonized, negated, or whatever works in order to pretend that one is in cognitive homeostasis and, THEREFORE, capable of survival . . . when, in fact, the opposite is true, because what is going on is more artificial than it is organic to one's actual self:world.

24. I got into a Facebook discussion with a Libertarian "friend of a friend," and

he kept quoting what sounded like excerpts from Milton Friedman and Ayn Rand, until I challenged him to quote an example from real life, such as I was doing based on my experience from 18 years of self-employment.

Crickets.

44. I had an experience like that with an atheist recently. I truly am very tolerant of atheism. I do

understand it, but, for reasons of my own, I am a person of faith, perhaps not conventional, as in other persons of faith might not identify with what I mean by that, but very definitely, in my own right, a person of faith, which, to me, means that I must humble my understanding in the face of atheism.

Anyway, I was having an FB discussion with an atheist friend, which was going fine, until I got, "Nietzsche said . . . " Well, I'm pretty well read myself and I do love all of that kind of stuff, but comes a point at which you MUST put it down and meet life head on and place your highest priorities on those experiences, no matter what Nietzsche said. I just let my FB friend go on and I may return, sometime, to pick that thread up again, when I feel I can have a little more patience with Nietzsche.

catered to, and they are angry that the adult world doesn't operate like that. They wanna do what they wanna do when they wanna do it, no matter who gets hurt or inconvenienced, and it's only government that is standing in the way of them expressing their innate wonderfulness. Waaaah!

17. Yes! One thing I think is that they don't know the difference between Liberty, as you describe, the

opportunities to do whatever/however/whenever/whyever/with-whomever/wherever they want, and FREEDOM, which includes freedom from the least valuable of one's wants. THIS is what has enslaved us, all desires are treated as of equal necessity and they AREN'T, literally, concretely are not equivalent just because someone/anyone wants whatever.

Freedom, on the other hand, is the ability to say, to CHOOSE, either "yes" or "no", not only to others, but also to one's self. It is often misunderstood that freedom is predicated on consequence -lessness for one's actions, a VERY bourgeoisie attitude if there ever was one, when, if you look at history, you see it is the opposite of that, the ability to act for truth and reality whether there are consequences or not and whether those consequences are positive/rewards or negative/punishment or not. Just LOOK at what happened to the signers of The Declaration of Independence!

Freedom is about the best approximation of reality one can muster, knowing the chances of being wrong, but committing in behavior to what one knows/hopes is true FOR ITS OWN SAKE and for none other. It's an internal personal connection to, identification with, reality, or one's best approximation thereof, and a willingness, nay, a DESIRE, to stake one's OWN life on that even though you're never absolutely sure (like Libertarians are 100% "right') that you are correct.

Leonard Cohen said it when he sang, "There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in." THAT's our situation and that IS a good thing.

25. Sweet Jesus!

That article just made me physically ill! The state of intolerance, hate and loathing is truly nauseating.

He would rather throw away all that he once held dear, family,wife,mother and child, than moderate his very narrow minded beliefs. He would let a person drown or fall off a cliff for said beliefs. Maybe the interviewer should have asked him if he would let his son or daughter die too!
However I think I would not like his reply.

The man is a truly sick individual. He is but a Cockroach in our society. He should scuttle back to his dismal hole to live out his days. The world will be a far better place without him!

If it weren't for corporate media giving these people voice, and empowering others to behave just as immaturely and irrationally...we wouldn't have to entertain such ridiculousness.

It almost seems like it is be design.

polluting my life with his crap-tastic, whiny, crybaby loser, assholistic complaining.

This limp-dick, looney-tunes, solidified fart of a human being fell out of the stupid tree, hit every branch on the way down, landed in a cesspool of human idiocy, sank to rock bottom, and then started digging.

If I ever see that miserable, quivering mass of tainted DNA oozing down the street, I will feel compelled to take a crap right in front of him in order to provide him with a companion of similar stature so that he might not feel so lonely.

"Never talk to Democrats again."

THANK YOU, you miserable, vomitous mass!...
