I'm Amused By The Folks Here Who Think We're Doing Just Fine...

Done soup kitchens, "challenged" chilrdrens schools, non-profit cancer orgs... many more.

It really ain't that fine... unless being fine for you... is enough.

11. And Yet... You Do NOT Put Me On "Ignore"... Why Do YOU Think Everything Is Fine ???

 

Is it something we should not consider ???

Or is it something that IS definitely coming up for the next couple of elections.

Get ready... cause here it comes.

17. I didn't say everything was fine...

...but neither did anyone else that I'm aware of, and you were unwilling to resolve my (and everyone else's) ignorance.

As for why I don't ignore you? I don't believe in tuning out people I (probably) disagree with; that's always been the Fox News approach, in my opinion.

20. Look for a thread which has the word "angry" in the header..

 

It isn't the only thread which has people attacking others of us discussing class analysis and the state of socio-economic inequalities we currently are knee deep in, but it is current in GD and you should find it quickly.

Scroll down and you'll see a couple of very nasty (almost psychotic imo) ad hominem attacks against the OP, claiming to be abused "centrists" essentially.

This particular one has rather high rec count, deservedly. It's one of the best discussions on the topic I've seen in a long while over all, sans those few very nasty attackers.

13. Right, there are too many people who are doing fine that don't realize how fast things could change

for them and how many people are not doing fine. Doing fine isn't enough. A lot of people who are doing fine fall for one reason or another, an injury/illness, a death in the family, offshored jobs, etc. etc. Some of us are doing fine, but income disparity is worse now than in the past 100 years. WE are not doing fine.

18. Indeed . . .

Life circumstances can, and not infrequently do, change on a dime.

19. not everyone is doing fine

We still have Republicans in power.

Our system as a whole is good and it's working fine - free speech, all of it, but people need to stop falling for the Republican message.

21. Amused by a few, startling though just the same

 

Some of these folks attacked with such a degree of ad hominem, waving the flag of "Centrism", compelled me to wonder if perhaps these individuals suffered from severe white privilege guilt. Just a theory...
