Maxine Waters will Socialize .. um Nationalize the Oil Industry

So, what again is the difference between liberals and socialists? Here it is plain and simple. If Maxine Waters is a liberal then there is no difference between liberals and socialists except perhaps the means to accomplish their goals. The end is the same: a top-down government control of industry; a country which is not limited by the archaic declarations set forth by death 18th C slaveholders who had no knowledge or appreciation of the problems faced by 21st C people.

Maxine Waters 1:10

And guess what this liberal would be all about?
This liberal will be about socialising

uh uh

Will be about basically taking over and the government running all of your companies.
If you are a liberal and do not consider yourself to be a socialist; if you consider nationalizing an industry to be immoral, unconstitutional, foolish, counter-productive and an example of socialist thinking how can you in a clear conscience not recoil at the fact that Maxine Waters calls herself a liberal?

A good counter-argument to the above is the question "Does promoting the nationalizing of an industry mean that its propenents are socialists?" No, of course not. It makes one a collectivist and not necesarily a socialist. I think it is clear, however, that Maxine Waters is on the International Socialist end of things, not a National Socialist, nor a theocrat.

And if you think people on the left think she's a nutcase go to

The Dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide

I'm a little behind the times but I just found a great site promoting the dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide. What a brilliant idea, what a brilliantly demented idea.

Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound, also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid. Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters. The atomic components of DHMO are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerine and Ethyl Alcohol.

What are some of the dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide?

Each year, Dihydrogen Monoxide is a known causative component in many thousands of deaths and is a major contributor to millions upon millions of dollars in damage to property and the environment. Some of the known perils of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:

  • Death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, even in small quantities.
  • Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.
  • Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.
  • DHMO is a major component of acid rain.
  • Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns.
  • Contributes to soil erosion.

Is it wrong to ask if Obama is a closet Marxist?

Is it wrong to ask or suspect that Obama may be a closet Marxist or Communist? Absolutely not. He has too many close associates who are avowed Marxists. This does not make him a Marxist but it naturally brings up the question and the suspicion.

And, so you ask, who cares if they’re communists? Well, would you say the same thing if they were Nazis? To me they are the same thing. Yes there are differences, but the similarity to someone who believes in individual liberty is minimal.

Communists intern and kill the bourgeois. Nazis killed the Jews. The Nazis just took the abstraction of the bourgeois and associated it with “The Jew”. Both communists and Nazis abhor the concept of individual liberty and individual rights; both treat any form of dissent as traitorous and deserving of death or imprisonment. In short if you believe in individual liberty, in individual rights then you have nothing but contempt for both Nazis and Communists.

Of course there is a difference: Nazis believe in the union of the race; that the individual is but a cell in the body politic of the race. Communists believe in the union of the class; that the individual is but a cell in the body politic of the class. It is a major difference and we should celebrate said difference; but as an individualist; as someone who believes in individual freedom; as someone who feels the purpose of government is to uphold and safeguard individual rights and contracts I may understand and relish the intellectual arguments that separate Nazis and Communists. Nonetheless I have nothing but contempt and disdain for both philosophies and will not live peacefully under either.

Did I oversimplify the argument in the above paragraph? Of course I did. But I leave it to you, the supporters of either the Nazis or Communists to explain to me how “you” or your ideal government would treat an individual who disagrees with the norms being enforced by your ideal government.

You don’t like Republicans because they hate gays you say? Then why do you wear a Che t-shirt?
