Sad

February 12, 2013

I find it sad that certain individuals continue to berate the Sun-Gazette for pointing out the facts about President Obama's policies....

@JohnWilsonKleesL Thank you John! Your post was exactly what I needed this morning. Reminds me of what My Granpappy used to say "boy, start the day with a smile! It irritates people."

@Bobbie2

Debating with you is like debating with a five year old that isn't getting his way. You seem to put the most thought into your insults, and not much else.

You're against the social safety net because of something that happened in the 1600s and North Korea? Do I have that right?

It wasn't socialism no matter how much the malicious right tries to paint it that way.

"No one is saying our history as a country is blemish free, but it’s our foundation as a Capitalistic economy with individual freedom and opportunity that made it the envy of the world. It boggles the mind why progressives are trying to change what works so well into central planning, which has historically failed to produce anything but mediocrity and the lack of a middle class."

You are going to cling that broken record Phil no matter what facts are presented. Conservativism as stated by enigms did not build this nation. No one ideology or philosophy did either.

Bobbie posted; " To rectify this situation, in 1623 Bradford abolished socialism."

"And this was not the first failure of socialism in America, just an example of history liberals never seem to learn. "

This is how destructive, misinformed, stupid and malicious conservatives and libertarians are. That early contract by the early settlers in America was a corporate contract and they were the sharholders. It wasn't a failed socialism or liberalism or any other ideology. Try as they may they can not escape the fact that the first settlements where business ventures that at first did not show profit until they retooled, realigned and reset goals.

Premier, here I thought you were smart. Slavery is not legal. It is not legally sanctioned by governments anymore. Yet it still exists.

Slavery still exists today in the form of human trafficking, forced labor, or sex trafficking. 17,500 people are trafficked into the Untied States, 3 out of every 4 are women and half of the modern-day slaves are children.

Buff:"I think what eriklatryani meant to say was, we had slavery, but like every other nation on earth, we ended it... although, it is widely realized that the practice still exists and some estimates put the number as being as high as ever in recorded history."

Just wondering Buff how something that was "ended" still "exist"? Confusion is running amok this morning.

Why can't liberal and progressives ever see a difference between immigrants and illegal immigrants. This nation was built and prospered through legal and regulated immigration. Illegal immigrants (I don't care what the PC Police want to call them) disobey the law and jump the line and we are supposed to reward them for that. If we want or need more immigrants, than let's change the quotas and policies. Don't reward those who care about the rules.

When the liberalism fails they say the safety net was too generous. When conservationism fails PEOPLE STARVE TO DEATH. That's not my opinion, that's history.

Complain all you want about how the progressives have ruined the country, when the GDP fell 8.9% in the 4th quarter of 2008, the GOP SAT ON ITS HANDS.

I support the SG's right to print whatever opinions that it sees fit. I also support anyone who wants to write in and tell the SG what they think of those opinions.

(I know I posted this earlier but in my haste this morning typed "write" instead of "right" and I simply could not let the error stand uncorrected.)

Hi all.. currently reading Decembers issue if the Progressive, been a little busy. Just finishing a story about Canada current government, viewed as the most rightwing in history and how they are dismantling 100 years of environmental and social infrastructure.. this being after reading a compelling story about womens rights. Progressive ideals regarding equal rights and environmental stewardship are not what is wrong with this country.. for those of you claiming to want unfettered freedom, stamp your passport and head for Haiti or Somalia, then see just how free you really are.. don't forget to pack your AK... sidenote, does anyone besides myself find it hilarious that the warring conservative factions, for the third year in a row, find it necessary to offer a rebuttal to the initial rebuttal??

We had slavery. But, unlike any other nation, we ended it.

We had discrimination against women and others. But, unlike any other nation, we ended it.

In the past, companies treated workers poorly, especially immigrants.

Today, government treats workers poorly (through the tax code), for the benefit of immigrants.

The Democrats are ready to give citizenship to lawbreakers, while the law-abiding cannot find work.

True progress is needed to grow economically and culturally. We have been stuck on industrialization for decades. If people would have been complacent, we never would have experienced the growth we have. That said, I agree that not all things deemed 'progress' are in fact progress.
