I tell them thanks, but that they are wasting their time, because I'm already in heaven.

Then I suggest that it would be far more useful for them to pray for themselves, and that I hope that someday they will join me in heaven.

Their primary reason for them adopting christofascist belief systems is so that they can feel like they are better than everyone else. God sanctions their beliefs, as proven by the Bible, which the overwhelming majority of them are not even capable of understanding.

Their fear based belief system is a safe place for them, because it is a place they know is right, because it is sanctioned by God - the Bible tells them so. Consequently, they become more and more ignorant with each passing day, as most or all new information is dismissed, because they already know the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Religious fanatics are dangerous people, and history makes this very clear.

How many more millions of dollars will the christofascists cost the American people

in their disgusting special interest religious crusade to unconstitutionally legislate their hatred for LGBT persons?

They are miserable and hopeless creatures, and willingly embracing hate has killed their hearts,

minds, and spirits.

Their existence is the dark hell of walking dead on earth, and all across America right now, these christofascist zombies are celebrating, and feeding on the great sadness they have inflicted on the living.

Because they are already dead, they can't really be blamed, because they have no conscience, and don't know what they do.

The humane thing we the living can do is to pass laws that will keep the vampires under control, in order to minimize the damage they do to all life.

I think the most desructive thing Reagan did was to dismantle our public education system,

and put in place an education system that deliberately "dumbed down" the general populace to the point where the incorrect spellings in the image in your OP are commonplace.

The sheep like stupidity and fawning obeisance to privatized corporate government exhibited by ignorant conservatives is the evidence of Reagan's greatest and deadliest success.

No matter which of the only two parties we can vote for that has

a chance of winning is put into office, Third Way wins. If republicans win, Third Way moves closer to, or maybe even gets, the entitlement (their word, not mine) cuts they promote. They get the war(s) they want. If corporatists Democrats win, they maintain the status quo of the illusion of a national democracy, the status quo of oligarchy, and the status quo of the polarization of wealth. etc. etc.

(Please don't make me get the links where the Third Way promotes all their nasty bullshit, you know they are there, and you must know I have found them before).

Unlike the rest of us, who generally won't profit much, if at all, economically speaking, like the Third Way and Republicans do when a corporatist of either party is elected. The ever increasing polarization of wealth will continue unimpeded no matter which corporatist candidate, "Democrat" or Republican is elected.

If a corporatist Democrat is elected, we will have some social and environmental gains. If a corporatist republican is elected, the world totally goes totally to hell for everyone but the upper classes. Meanwhile, no matter what, the country keeps moving to the right, to the delight of the Third Way, the republicans, and the oligarchs.

Easy-peasy.

Being a member of several minority groups, I have no other sane option, I have to vote for the Democratic nominee, or risk serious hazard to my liberty and health, and the liberty and health of my family and friends. The PTB know that Democrats and left independents, etc have little choice: Either we vote for the Democratic candidate that they choose for us, or we get sociopathic republicans running our country.

I want something more than a Democratic candidate who is chosen for me, something more than a Democrat whose primary function is to maintain and increase the power of corporations and oligarchs to control me and ensure that democracy remains nothing but an illusion. I want the chance to vote for a Democratic candidate who understands what necessary changes must be made, and who will sincerely work to solve the problems that prevent democracy, equality, and justice for everyone, who will work for the people, and not primarily for the oligarchs and their corporations.

And the innate ability to quickly and easily manipulate vote counts with electronic voting machines can prevent those things from ever happening, nip them right in the bud during the nomination process, if the media fails to prevent it in the first line of defense. Electronic voting machine vote manipulation is a "no muss, no fuss" fail safe mechanism by which corporations/oligarchs can prevent democracy, equality, and justice from ever occurring on a national scale in the United States.

So we need to kill these machines, forever, ASAP.

The global power of the financial centers is so great, that they can afford not to worry about the political tendency of those who hold power in a nation, if the economic program (in other words, the role that nation has in the global economic megaprogram) remains unaltered. The financial disciplines impose themselves upon the different colors of the world political spectrum in regards to the government of any nation. he great world power can tolerate a leftist government in any part of the world, as long as the government does not take measures that go against the needs of the world financial centers. But in no way will it tolerate that an alternative economic, political and social organization consolidate. For the megapolitics, the national politics are dwarfed and submit to the dictates of the financial centers. It will be this way until the dwarfs rebel . .

This ain't Burger King, bro. In a Corporate Oligarchy, you get it their way, or you get it

their way.

The fact is, no one knows what the lerm term effects of GMO's on the human body

and the rest of the natural environment are, and/or will be.

Since GMO's began to be used on a mass scale, there has been a rapid and continual rise in cases of autism. There are many theories, and much speculation, concering why there has been a rapid rise in cases of autism, but no one really knows what has caused this rise.

There has been a rapid and continual rise in cases of food allergies since GMOs began to be used on a mass scale. There are many theories, and much speculation, concerning why there has been a rapid rise in cases of allergies, but no one really knows what has caused this rise.

Are GMOs the cause of the inordinate rise in cases of autism and rise in the onset of allergies among young and old alike?

I don't know. You don't know. And if Monsanto., etc knows, they sure as heck aren't going to hurt their bottom line profits by revealing anything negative about their cash cow GMO's.

Throughout history, many people have been harmed or killed by the use of industrial. medical, and agricultural products (such as asbestos, DDT, Mercury, that industry scientists claimed was perfectly safe, and that was sanctioned for use by the EPA.

Maybe they made mistakes in these cases. Maybe these products were never properly tested for safety. Maybe they marketed these products knowing they were toxic in the long run, but figured the profits they made in the short run were worth far more than the people they harmed or killed. Maybe they figured that by the time the toxic effects of these products became apparent, they would have made so much in profit that the slap on the wrist fine they would be penalized with was nothing but a few pennies compared to the long term profits.

Or maybe they simply didn't know what the long term effects would be. The same situation exists in the present, concerning the agricultural use and mammalian consumption of GMO's.

Now, some of the DU armchair scientists, and the DU trolls for Monsanto, and some plain old DUers who simply believe because they are cheerleaders for capitalism, or because it's 'murica!, whatever, that there are no present or long term negative effects of GMO's, may post on this thread in indignation, telling everyone that they know for a fact that GMO's are definitely safe for agricultural use and mammalian consumption.

But the plain truth is, really don't know, and they can't prove that they do know.

I'll answer it.

Official British Intent

Below is what happens when royal imperialist British babykilling psychopath occupiers occupy your country. They deliberately starve you, and your children, in a genocidal effort that results in a major holocaust. This is just a fraction of my family's kids that were murdered by the kinder, gentler psychopathic royal British imperialist babykilling occupiers. If you want to see more, no problem.

I've got a million of them.

A typical Irish farm family in 1854 enjoys the abundant fruits of the Royal Imperial British Psychopath Occupation of Ireland. After a splendid, lavish meal of field grass and boiled road kill, they play a fun game of "Let's Pretend We're Warm" in their cozy mansion while they wait for little Patrick to die of starvation after the British psychopaths took all the food they grew as payment of tithes to the Church of Ireland and the Crown and sold it to the highest bidder in England.

There's no possible valid comparison between the IRA and the groups you mentioned, especially the religion motivated jihadists, and the comparison you made is ludicrous. The Irish have been engaged in a centuries long war to drive British fascists from their country. Now, if you compared the IRA to the Iraqis who tried/try to drive Americans from Iraq after Bush's war and occupation, you'd have a strong argument. No reasonable person would blame the Iraqi people, no matter what religion they are, for trying to drive the imperialist occupiers from their country.

The British can simply end the violence by leaving the land they stole from the people of Ireland forever. It's really that simple. Just go. Don't go away mad, just go away. Better to do it now before the occupation results in any more violence occurs. Protestants don't have to leave, just the Crown, and its cronies, need go.

A unified Ireland is inevitable.

While most Irish folk don't want violence, there is a small faction that does. Possibly because of a small thing, like the millions of of Irish babies the royal imperialist British psychopaths have murdered in Ireland over the past 8 centuries.

All the IRA ever really wanted to do was drive the psychopathic royal British imperialist babykilling occupiers out of their home lands in Ireland.

That's all.

In nations where oligarchs own and control both the media and the political process,

there is no real democracy.

It's very simple. Buy the mainstream media, control your mainstream media, use the mainstream media to create culture and public opinion, and use it for your purposes.

Buy the government, control the government, and use it to control the populace for your purposes.

It's not rocket science.

The folks referred to by conservatives as "far left" are generally democrats who advocate for possible effective avenues of changing our system of government from oligarchy to some genuine form of democracy.

Many of these conservatives even consider leaders like Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren to be "far left", when, in fact, they are simply plain old democrats.



No offense meant, cbayer, but if you are, for some reason, not aware of this obvious reality, we cannot conduct a conversation as peers. The frustration expressed by Fumesucker in the OP is the same frustration expressed by most democrats in general, certainly the majority of democrats on DU. If such a large number of "Big D" Democrats are so unaware of global political realities that they refer to folks like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and DUers like Fumesucker, and the other democrats among us who see that the system is obviously rigged against us, there is no real hope for instituting democracy in the US, except through focused and effective direct action from outside the system.

The oligarchs will not allow democracy to manifest while they control the information and the political process; it's simply against their personal, and class, material interests.

So True. It's a very clever and effective trap that the 1% has devised for us.

The 1% buys and controls the global media in order to create, and control, cultures and public opinion. Give the voters in pseudo democracies a choice in order to continue the illusion of liberty and democracy.

The "choice": Either vote for the corporatist candidate who will support human rights, or vote for the corporatist candidate who will crush human rights. Meanwhile, economic injustice (particularly concerning the ramifications of the polarization of wealth), inequality (see previous parenthesized sentence fragment), and rule by oligarch continues to expand exponentially.
