Thread: Done

  1. #1

    Default Done

    Just finished up the paperwork finalizing my annual contributions to Comrade Obama's grand vision for America, and the mess left behind from Rod Blagojevich's hallucination for the People's Democratic Republic of Illinois.

    Phew!

    Side benefit, you guys got a story (Vince), which I worked on for awhile every time the nausea of government forms overcame me.

    If you can do better, do. If you cannot, move. If you don't want to move, deal.

    If you don't feel like doing any of these, you're disposable. I'd encourage you to join my resistance movement in this case.

    Well put. People who compare the US to a socialist dictatorship ought to move to a real despotism. Try Burma, Belarus, or Tajikstan on for size and see how you feel then.

    Yea, but that doesn't really make up for the headache after head desking from reading another individual being completely oblivious to what communism is and isn't. I assume you're refering to rather taxes or the census, neither making a lick of sense in how you're refering to it.

    But seriously, define communism for us and tell us how Obama fits it. As from where I sit, his rhetoric may be progressive (which isn't communism) but his governing is right of centre.

    I have a friend and co-worker from Ukraine. We have similar views on many different things, and many of these views are not shared by Americans. When you are starving and have to watch your siblings and children getting slowly weaker, theft no longer looks bad at all. When you see such inequity, abstractions such as a loving God no longer really hold sway in your daily existence.

    Although--and I think this is where Maxx was trying to go--the United States is a shadow of its former self with respect to freedom and social/economic mobility (is that right, Maxx?), the daily grind of getting fed, watered, and sheltered is much easier here than other spots in the world. The small-picture stuff is accomplishable here; I myself am worried about the big-picture items--which, in turn, indicates that I'm fed and watered sufficiently to have this leisure.

    Of course, I'm also busy laying groundwork that will allow me to hopefully make a quick escape out of the country if the philosophical need should arise.

    Anyway ... you're still welcome to join my Legion of Awesomeness, Maxx!

    Taxes, Mako. They're due tomorrow here. (Argh.)

    Can't be long now until the forms will show up in Russian. Better start leaning how to spell your name in Cyrillic. Let me help you there: товарищ макс

    Funny you should go there. I was debating sharing an interesting thing in this vein.

    As I initially learned Russian pre-1991, I still use товарищ (lit. "comrade") as a greeting/familiar/friendly term. It gets me strange looks from some people, depending on when/where/how they grew up.

    In his several posts, h3g3l spoke well for me. I might as well go back to bed.

    Of course the U.S. is not Bangladesh or the old Soviet Union, and Obama is not Stalin, but he is taking us in that direction. It will take a while to bleed us down that far. I'm not suggesting at all I could do better elsewhere. I am suggesting that he and his leftist ilk are moving the country around me. Or trying anyway.

    Perhaps we should ignore the red flags and let him have his way until we sink to the level of, say, England? or France? Where SHOULD we draw the line?

    Taxes and fees are increasing at an alarming rate in every corner of our lives. Inflation is essentially zero on goods and services, why should government continue to gobble up more and more? Personally, I think that's the next bubble. Either the people rise up, or the system collapses under its own weight.

    There's no choice, taxes and fees are going to have to go up.
    The huge deficit and debt of the U.S. make that a necessity.

    What would happen if the U.S. defaulted on it's debt; the People's Republic of China, North American Branch
