Bodies , Logic, and Newman: BUTOTHINKOSEE A PROBLEM ALREADY unaffiliatedpangolin: siryouarebeingmocked: alaija: cisnowflake: weaponizedhorse: nunyabizni: eric-coldfire: simon-newman: jeepsarmitage: doomy: occupy-democrats: mstar1960: occupy-democrats: Imagine wanting to spend billions on something so easily circumvented. I guess lefties think that illegal aliens can walk on water. Wow, you’re right. There’s a huge flaw in my post, I forgot that humans have no way to get across water. Thanks for pointing that out, I’ll get right on deleting this. Gay Mexicans on boats… This isn’t even covering planes Considering how many people from Cuba have died trying to cover the 40 miles from there to the US I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that this would wind up having a higher mortality rate than that. ^^ plus where are all these people getting boats from We also have much better boats that could stop their boats. Well Australia doesn’t have a problem with people walking here, so bodies of water must be somewhat effective at preventing illegal immigration. Those waters are already patrolled. It’s just a perfect solution fallacy (nirvana fallacy) with added snark. The exact high standards of logic I’d expect from occupy-dems. Also, doesn’t O-D support gun control to stop shootings? https://occupy-democrats.tumblr.com/tagged/gun-control Yes, yes they do. Each one of those lines is hundreds of miles long. And the Coast Guard exists. OK but… Ya’ll realize that lots of people do still successfully make it to shore on homemade rafts and shit right? “The Coast Guard exists”, so do border patrol agents. Shockingly they don’t stop everybody.

The aim of socialism is to bring the lower and croato one big "workin classes into the middle class and dissolve the class, free to reap the whole PoorPensions u e ubos and oeupper classes; what is not realized here is the east fortunate members of existance of a centralized bureaucracy would only sockety w5 isedset up a new upper class of "bureaucratic elites Socia MiddleProgram Bureacracy privileging themselves with the primary hold on capital and resources as they monopolize distribu- tion; this solution to "class warfare" defeats itself 2. While some individuals are truly disadvantaged and in need of help, automatically labeling the poor as "in need" is a sure way to keep them so. Not only is the welfare system flawed in acting as a "free lunch" to the unwilling, but also a trap, waiting to backfire as soon as individuals standard of living raises to a point where they no longer qualify for aid, but will not maintain a good standard of living for some time until they are independant RichLabor Taxes 4 . The services provided by bureaucracy are poor and make for a tax more expensive than any bill or pricetag on the narket; they are poor for the same reason a diabetic has more incentive to excercise than a perfectly fit individual here's always the threat of health, metaphorically job security. Also, they are more expensive due to added-on ureaucratic costs (paperwork, wages, etc.) and the cost for the actual services themselves, even more so for high- end service. 4. By putting the tax burden on the rich and business, one is sure to hamper industry; every cent of a rofit taxed is a cent lost to being able to provide more jobs, better goods and services, and a better working facility This is to assume that the bureaucracy won't own and manage the workplaces, in which the threat of failure and rofit loss would not factor in decision-making for the company's (worker's) best interests. 5. The fallacy in criticizing he rich as greedy, manipulative, and authoritative is that socialism's alternative, bureaucracy, is in essence no differ nt the problem now is the cronies are working together instead of competing. 6. Like taxation, regulation is a hin- rance to industry; instead of directly cutting into capital, it is a loss of potential gains. While they are good meaning egulations hinder the efficiency and production capabilities of the workplace, only hurting the worker in the end. 7 Soviet Russia, China and North Korea are/were socialist economies; next up, America <p>🅱hit on yourself via /r/dank_meme <a href="http://ift.tt/2eGiP9n">http://ift.tt/2eGiP9n</a></p>

Caitlyn Jenner, Cars, and Cheating: TOP PRETENDING YOUR RACISM IS PATRIOTISM Compassion for fashion & material interests, as you digest more flesh of the beast that invests, in financial slavery & monetary incest, what's next, more debts so we stay perplexed, Puppets pretend to make decisions, politics is a theatre on the Tel-Lie-vision, can we trust them? They are all rich in the bank, as they thrust chemtrails & more pollutants, translucent & opaque, so many are so fake, sorry it was a mistake we contaminated more lakes, for profit & tax breaks, but we still support them when we buy up the bar, more gas for their expensive cars, celebrating reality tv stars, a devastating fallacy will be ours, we are killing all the bees, chopping all the trees, so we can graze our meat, give our children treats that aren't fit to eat. How did we get here, oh dear, you don't study history so to you it's not clear. Telling your daughter the designer dresses look cute, while cheating on your family with weekly Prostitutes...who really are just a product of you, you f*cked the earth for paper, now you pay to professionally rape her, film & tape her, give her back soulless money & say you will see her later. She can only give in for so long, she is only so strong, murdering your own humanity for purposeless vanity, it's all insanity, reality damaged me, hope is fleeting, junk food is eating away at the starving, we greeting another mission to mars & paedophiles creeping our children's organs for carving... All of this sickness while the president is tweeting... but you just want thickness on IG for your skeeting, you want a waxed woman to sit down, shut up & obey, the taxes keep coming, you frown & output hours of your life in this way. There is so much injustice that you feel useless, stupid & fruitless, whatever happened to Baghdad, you're scared or arabs in hijabs, you blame the Muslims again & again, at least they kill child abusers out there in Yemen... But anyway don't get distracted, somebody on tv did another backflip & have nothing to fear Caitlyn Jenner was recently voted woman of the year... chakabars @badgalriri

Bad, Bad Day, and Confused: forgive yourself for loving the wrong person One day when you really love this will make sense, nothing else matters, not your bad day at work, not the government trying to enslave us, not the night or the day, just this moment as we lay, holding each other closely like those at the end trying to hold on to life, no need for titles, lover, soul mates, life. I experienced reality through you, forehead to 3rd eye, to superconscious convection. I am safe here, nothing can go wrong, you are protection. I am not scared of anything because we are everything. It is my heart that you own now, be gentle as I only have one, open emotional surgery, now you have the power to murder me, with this power comes great responsibility, do you love me or is this a fallacy? I'm only young not sure I deserve to die, but I was dead before & you brought me life, The last one tore me up with bullsh*t lies, I just want you more & no more strife, What are you thinking, Staring deep in my soul, Not moving not blinking, Together we grow old... If I could capture this moment literally stopping time, I would die here happily, because you are next to me. We crossed paths & walked together for a while. I never want to stop, my soul is in your smile, I never cared for a destination unless it was this moment, where my heart stayed open, where you swim in the ocean of emotions & never come up for air, you can share mine. Your happiness is the plasma that my life blood begins in, and your laughter is my serotonin, you are my mind & my thoughts deep within me, you stimulate growth as you stroke my face, playing with my hair. I try to dive deep into your heart but you don't think you are ready. It's ok have me, keep me, I don't want anything else, I'm confused as to a better purpose for my existence in time & space. Not everyone has the same heart, you got me, but don't think just because you give you shall receive, Yet one day you will live though somebody, If you let them in then please believe... Make sure you know them, before you open the source of your life to others. It's not sex it's deeper than lovers. Just be full of care because as you have my heart, someone, one day will hold yours or tear it apart... chakabars

Beautiful, Brains, and Confused: Weall come from mother She didnroome from a mans rib @ehakabar You love it when without a pen I write like this, words flow like rivers grow when glaciers cease to exist.

His mistake was never listening, he saw her aura glistening, thought of marriage & him christening their newborn from her womb within, but she wanted more than his next of kin. She wanted to change this system of sexism, he wanted sex & of her less questioning. She wanted a change to female oppression, he wanted brains without fail & less of her questions. She wanted to be heard & seen as the goddess she is.

Will you treat me with respect, love & intellect, or will you break your soul & neck trying to negate truth without regret.

If one man who is really kind to all people says the moon is made of green cheese and another mean and terrible person says it’s made of rock, I can agree with the terrible man on that without also being terrible. I’m not defending Trump’s many major flaws or his terrible comments and I’m more than happy with my choice to refuse to support him, but I am willing to recognize that the reasons he won against Hillary are more complicated than “muh racism/sexism”. For goodness sake, look at how many women voted for him. Look at the fact that he got more Latino support than Romney. Use your brain and it’s clear there is more going on here.</p>

9gag, Bodies , and Clothes: 4 Reasons It's Perfectly Fine (And Healthy) To Masturbate Daily 1. When we masturbate, we get to know our bodies and our minds By masturbation, we learn about what turns us on. Mentally, we can tune in to our fantasies to understand the types of things that turn us on While masturbating, do we fantasize about being dominated or being watched? These are clues which help us understand what makes us tick, and in turn, we can begin to understand how to get our needs met by a partner. Individuals who are having issues with arousal or orgasm can benefit greatly from masturbation and self love, getting to know ur body techniques. Ladies, if you are having trouble masturbating also suggest experimenting with some toys. Using a vibrator, for example, is a common way for women to learn to achieve orgasm. Investing in a vibrator may be something you want to add into your sexual repertoire. Getting familiar with your body through the use of a vibrator is also a good way to know what you like, and can be a fun and exciting thing to introduce to partner sex, as well 2. Masturbation has health benefits. Masturbation can relieve tension and stress and can help with the inability to sleep. There is evidence that the chemicals released during orgasm can heal depression. during orgasm can heal Also, there is a study that suggests that women who masturbate are more likely to be concerned with their sexual health and visit the gynecologist more often. I'm not sure if this last one is altogether true, but I can see the correlation since women who masturbate may be more in-tune with their bodies, and thus, visit the gynecologist more s often. 3. Indulging in yourself can make you a sexier person. The concept that a sexually active woman need not masturbate is actually a fallacy. Sex with a partner is great and masturbation is great, too. Why deprive yourself of one because you have the other? It just doesn't make sense Would you deprive yourself of cake just because you had ice cream? Nope, I didn't think so. In Italy they eat pizza before they eat pasta. Get my drift? A little indulgence in developing your sexu epertoire will make you a sexier person all around too 4. Mutual masturbation in partner sex play is great. Mutual masturbation takes the focus away from the need to please each other and can help couples recognize the value of self-pleasure and self-care within a relationship. Not to mention, it helps us get to know each other just a little bit better Knowing what you like and how to please yourself will make you a better lover, but can be a turn on to a partner, as well. Masturbation is also a great way to avoid risk or worry about pregnancies and STDs. So, go ahead and get to know yourself a little Sbetter! Ditch your clothes, take a bath, look at yourself naked in the mirror, put on something sexy and/or just go ahead and touch yourself. You'll be glad you did VIA 9GAG.COM Dont feel guilty to masturbate daily ;)

If it had kept pace with inflation, it would be $21.16/hour. $15/hr. is meeting in the middle. Get a clue.</p> </blockquote> <p>Having actually worked several minimum wage hours when I was younger, I can honestly say I got paid a fair wage for work I was doing.  I of course wanted to earn more so I could spend my money on more stuff, so I worked hard and earned a raise.  Despite this, the government always took out about 17% of my weekly earnings without my permission which did limit my spending each pay period.</p> <p>So, yes, I did understand the solution - I did not want to keep working for minimum wage to receive minimum pay so I worked my way to a higher wage or found new jobs that paid more.  Pretty simple concept.</p> <p>Oh, and the minimum wage <a href="https://tedtheeconomist.wordpress.com/2015/06/17/the-minimum-wage-adjusted-for-inflation-is-biased-propaganda/">has nothing to do with keeping up with inflation</a>, you fool.</p> </blockquote> <p>Yeah, I’ve worked minimum wage jobs myself when I was younger - a number of them. I thought the pay was disgraceful for the amount of labor involved. Luckily, I had plenty of opportunities to earn degrees and find better paying jobs myself. I even started my own business and have been successful enough to provide a middle class lifestyle for my family in a country where that is increasingly harder to accomplish. The difference here is that I understand that I am where I am today because of privilege and circumstances not available to everyone in our country. Yes, I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am. I work hard every week as a teacher, and as the owner of a retail business. But I don’t kid myself into thinking my labor is somehow harder than the single mom working at McDonald’s. I’ve been there. Those jobs suck. I also don’t buy into this false narrative that equates wealth with harder work. If anything, I’ve noticed that the more money people earn, the less work they tend to do, because they usually end up getting others to work for them. People in the wealthiest nation on earth should not put in 40 hours a week for a poverty wage and no benefits that in turn require taxpayers to subsidize them, so they can survive. How can you not see that? How have you bought into this fantasy to the point that you think corporations making obscene profits at the expense of their employees and WE the TAXPAYERS are somehow in the right for fucking us all over, while getting you to bash the hardworking people who make their profits possible?</p> <p>As to your last comment about the minimum wage and inflation - why not? What’s your argument, “fool?” Because not only has minimum wage not kept up with inflation, neither have middle class wages. So, unless you’re in the upper economic echelons, over the past 30 years, you’ve gotten fucked too.</p> </blockquote> <p>&gt; “I even started my own business and have been successful enough to provide a middle class lifestyle for my family in a country where that is increasingly harder to accomplish.” </p> <p>&gt; “<i>Yes, I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am.</i>”<br/></p> <p>&gt; “<i>I also don’t buy into this false narrative that equates wealth with harder work.</i>” </p> <figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="300" data-orig-width="400"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/f5970c9a8fcd35a1f92541c768ca8829/tumblr_inline_o1ftq9L2Cw1r1jtxd_500.gif" data-orig-height="300" data-orig-width="400"/></figure><p>The cognitive dissonance of some progressives must be excruciating.</p> <p>This entire argument boils down to the lousy myth of “privilege”.  “Yes, I worked hard but I luckily had more advantages unlike other people.”  Boo hoo.

This is a treatise against the oligarchy. Fuck the rich. Let’s make America a true democracy</i>.”  That’s some edgy teenage socialist lingo right there.</p> <p>And you clearly did not read that article.  Because if you did, you would already know the answer to your question.</p> </blockquote> <p>I used to clean airplanes for $8.00 an hour. Worked hard and got a raise to $8.44. </p> <p>There is no way I would’ve ever expected to earn $15 an hour for doing that. You’ve got to be joking. It was a shitty and exhausting job working in the Phoenix heat, but that doesn’t equate to earning more.</p> </blockquote> <p>Okay quick age check here. I’m 30 and have seen how little the dollar is worth now, 2.15 in 1965 is over 22.50 now, minimum wage is a living wage and until Reaganomics ruined it people weren’t dumb enough to believe the shit your spewing</p> </blockquote> <p>Dear @youngbull1985, </p><p>I hate to break it to you but you are a 30 year-old economic illiterate.  The federal minimum wage in 1965 was $1.25 which is $9.38 in 2015 dollars.  So, you’re not even close and obviously got your progressive talking points messed up somewhere.  </p><p>Furthermore, <a href="https://tedtheeconomist.wordpress.com/2015/06/17/the-minimum-wage-adjusted-for-inflation-is-biased-propaganda/">inflation has nothing to do with wage rates</a>.  That’s just an economic fallacy to begin with.  The progressives just use it anyway to invoke an emotional response from ignorant people that do not understand the math. The same can be said about the meaningless term “living wage.” There is no such thing as a “living wage.”  That term is completely subjective and holds absolutely no real value.</p><p>Do yourself a favor and forget everything you think you know about the minimum wage or “Reaganomics” and pick up an actual history book or take a basic economics class and educate yourself.  Because repeating completely bogus talking points you learned from other idiot progressives online is not helping anyone.  Until then, your vote is cancelling out someone else’s that understands the world better than you.</p></blockquote>

Yes they are.<br/> Allow me to present the dictionary definition that is so often spoken of on tumblr:</p> <p>fem·i·nism<br/> ˈfeməˌnizəm/<br/> noun<br/> the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.</p> <p>Huh. That’s weird. It looks like the definition is not “literally equality”. I’ve been lied to! But I digress. Anyway, if that’s what defines a feminist, then anyone who advocates women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men is a feminist. That’s it. That’s the only requirement. Being concerned for men’s rights really isn’t a necessity for being a feminist. You just need to seek equality with men, whatever that would mean for you. </p> Now I have a few problems with that, the biggest one being the fact that acknowledging men’s needs or fighting for men’s rights simply is not included in the definition of feminism. In fact, seeking equality with men assumes that men have all the rights they could ever possibly want and thus need no one to fight for them. Feminism does not, at its core, fight for men. Now if only there was some sort of ideology that fought for all genders equally. Something that fought for people in general rather than needing to specify gender and subsequently make another gender seem as though they had all their rights taken care of… Something like… Hmmmm… Oh! <p>Egalitarianism <br/>noun <br/>Advocacy of the equality of all people, especially in political, social, and economic life.</p> <p>There we go. There is a word for “literally equality” and it’s egalitarianism, not feminism. The definition of egalitarianism necessitates fighting for all rights, the definition of feminism does not.</p> <p>Now you may be saying “Hey! Feminists fight for men’s rights too!” And you’d be right, at least partially. Some people who identify as feminists do fight for men’s rights, but that is the perfect segue into my discussion about the No true Scotsman fallacy.</p> <p>From a Wikipedia summary:</p> <p>“No true Scotsman is an informal fallacy, an ad hoc attempt to retain an unreasoned assertion. When faced with a counterexample to a universal claim (“no Scotsman would do such a thing”), rather than denying the counterexample or rejecting the original universal claim, this fallacy modifies the subject of the assertion to exclude the specific case or others like it by rhetoric, without reference to any specific objective rule (“no true Scotsman would do such a thing”).” </p><p>This is why you can’t just shrug your shoulders at “crazy feminists” who don’t fight for men’s rights by saying they aren’t “real feminists” or “true” feminists if you will. As long as they fulfill that rather short list of requirements listed above, they are true feminists, even if you don’t like or agree with them. Fighting for men’s rights simply isn’t part of the necessary equation.</p> <p>Meanwhile, egalitarianism *is* by definition the advocacy of rights for all. Do you not like the term egalitarianism because somebody who called themselves egalitarian wasn’t fair to women? Well it can be truly said that they were not true egalitarians, since they don’t adhere to the very definition of the word which does, unlike feminism, require equal advocacy.</p> So when somebody tells you they’re an egalitarian rather than a feminist, don’t act so shocked and offended and try to shoot them down by saying that feminism “literally means equality” and that the people they’ve had bad experiences with “aren’t real feminists” because they are, whether you like it or not.</blockquote>
