    Oh, and to those who may be reading, I understand I’ve crossed about every line in tolerance and discussion in my treatment of that poster, so this will be my last post at FDL. I apologize to those of you reading who are disgusted by my outburst and promise it was my last one. The [...]

    Finding the middle ground is exactly what I’m looking for. All you keep saying, in every post, is the size of government must be kept small. Just for being kept small’s sake. That’s what ALL libertarians argue. And that’s BULLSHIT. If it takes a big government to do a lot of good, then I hope [...]

    Dood, there are only one of two possibilities. I don’t give a shit if you don’t agree with that fact or not, it is a fact. Either a government can do good OR a government cannot do good. That’s it. One of the two of those are true, and they cannot possibly both be true [...]

    Yes it is ridiculous. Yes, I originally used the term necessary evil but when you agreed with the term, it also became yours. So, once again, if “government is a necessary evil” and stopping anarchy is “the core reason government is necessary” (two quotes by you), then logic 101 tells us the only logical outcome [...]

    Nice…

    Thanks Elliot, appropriate.

    Hope you’re doing well.

    Oh, and I _think_ you were the one that added the pic in my diary the other day. Thank you so much, it really made it look good. Well, as good as diary by OFG could look, at least. Thanks.

    You said government is a necessary evil, therefore, if stopping anarchy is the reason government is necessary, it must be evil. And thanks for not responding to the legitimate questions exactly as I thought you would. And I’ll tell you what you said, and continue to say, that “provokes me into becoming abusive.” You have [...]

    Wait, why is it “evil” for a government to prevent anarchy? This was exactly the answer I was hoping for, because it is and has always been the flaw in libertarians bullshit arguments. If stopping anarchy is evil, why on earth should we want to do that? If stopping anarchy is a good thing, why [...]

    Perhaps I’m not being cleared on the whole good/bad thing. Maybe a better way to put it would be to suggest that there is such a thing as a necessary evil. Because if you believe that no government is the answer, I really do hope and pray with all my heart and soul that one [...]

    OFG (gratz on your front page, btw) thinks the argument that the government can never be good is complete bullshit but can’t find a single example anywhere in the world.

    I could find past examples, such as most of the social democracies in Europe. Iceland today is not a bad example, and there may be one [...]

    Well, I’m gonna fire up my gaming computer, and see if maybe I can get lost in a game and tire myself out to the point of sleep.

    Take care all, and I’ll send out all the wellness thoughts I can toward your leg Suz. Best wishes as always.

    Yeah, she definitely officially qualifies as “hot”.

    Ugh, that sounds awful.

    You know I heard this rumor for the longest time, something about these being “golden years” or something.

    I think we were lied to.

    Again.

    Well I’ll be damned. I’d heard for years it was attributed to him. I knew it wasn’t in the novel 1984, but I had heard it was attributed to him.

    Now if I can only remember after I get back on a semi-normal sleep pattern so I don’t inadvertently make the mistake again.

    If I were a bettor, I’d wager a crisp $100 bill that I’ll forget and attribute the quote to him again.

    Oh man, tell me about it. I’m right in the middle of a the worst insomnia I’ve ever dealt with.

    And as you can probably tell from my commenting, and getting much closer to insanity than my normal levels.

    THREE!

    Jeebus.

    I swear they’re born, you go to work, come home, and they’re doing homework. By the time Friday arrives they’re asking for the car keys.

    Three already. Damn.

    Yeah, I’ve noticed too (and commented to Suz about it).

    Remember, Orwell said the truth would become radical, or something along those lines.

    We’re there it appears. No one wants to be so radical as to associated with the truth.

    Yep, it is in line with what happens with Medicaid. Where this goes further is as of now if your parents die owing Medicaid hundreds of thousands, they will seize your parents estate, 100% of it if necessary, and that’s the end of it. With this precedent, if, after grabbing your parents estate there were [...]
