 I wasn't going to dignify this with a reply but yes of course it's garbage.

 

SDW was a big supporter of the birther question also. Anything to throw a little dirt around in hope that some poor fool will take it as gospel. He usually finds these things in a conservative source that no one but conservatives reads or watches. Funny you don't see this stuff from multiple sources as it would be big news.lol.gif SDW doesn't seem to understand why that places a lot of doubt on these items.

 

But ( sigh ) as you can see SDW is still living in the McCarthy era.

For "dirt throwing" (including specific implications of lies and criminal conduct) from Democrats, we can just look right at the president himself.

Let me ask a pair of specific questions from the thread's topic of you. Do you believe that Obama is a communist and that this has dire consequences for the country?

Wow, you guys should seriously stop wasting time with this Obama stuff and start focusing on what Romney can actually do. OK, Obama sucks, we get it. So, what is the solution for

~a never-ending war
~addiction to oil
~lack of basic healthcare for everyone
~15 Trillion USD in debt
~slow economic recovery

I really don't know what Obama is. He appears to be part socialist and part corporatist (fascist). He's all statist. Ultimately he's mostly just a political opportunist with statist Utopian tendencies.

 

All of that has dire consequences for country given the amount of power he has.

1. Never ending war? Stop starting wars.

2. The "addiction" to oil? WTF?

3. Lack of basic healthcare for everyone? This is a lie.

4. $15T debt? Stop spending so much.

5. Slow economic recovery? Cut taxes, regulations and spending.

A dodge ( but a good one I'll give you that ). I thought you wouldn't give a direct answer. ( wink if I could )

You can call it what you want and think whatever you want. It's an honest answer. I don't really know what he is. His words, actions and associations paint a muddled picture. As I said, ultimately he's a political opportunist with statist Utopian tendencies. That's really all we need to know. That's dangerous enough. At that point it matters little whether he's specifically communist or not.

It sounds like you've decided what you think he is to me. And the idea that he's dangerous is your subjective take. You see ( for example ) I think Romney is dangerous and the last thing we need right now.

Yes, just not the specifics about a particular political/economic/social ideology (e.g., communism).

I don't know that I'd disagree.

 

My only hope is that some degree of infighting among the two branches of the political party running this country would be enough to slow down the disaster they're creating and, thus, some combination like an Obama presidency with a Republican congress might be the best thing we can hope for. Very far from ideal, but perhaps enough friction and intransigence to stop or slow the federal government from any more of its depredations and general destruction.

Like I've said before when asked to be pinned down on something you choose to dodge. Oh well.

Do you mean like jazzy's mistaken idea that the Register had some big scoop that disproved Global warming?lol.gif

 

And I had to go to great lengths to get it through some people's heads that was the subject matter at hand and trying to divert it to some small point was just obfuscation in the hopes of wearing me down? That kind of substantive content?

I think I've pretty well covered the communist question in this thread :

 

Where you just posted this :

 

Quote:

Perhaps you need a refresher on the definitions of subjective and objective.

 

Let's try an examples. I'll speak slowly and use small words.

 

Some person thinks they can step in front of moving cars without any risk of injury.

 

Setting aside the clinically technical definitions relating to "crazy" for a moment I think it can be said, reasonably objectively, that this person is "crazy" to think or believe what they believe. You see it is a much less subjective evaluation. It is less about opinion that stepping in front of moving vehicles carries with it a great deal of risk of injury and death. It is certainly not absolute, but we have a great deal evidence along with a strong understanding of physics to guide us in making a reasonably objective evaluation of this person's craziness.

 

Does that help or are you just playing games?

Nice substance pertaining to the topic I must say!lol.gif

I'm sure in your mind because your take on the whole thing isn't the same. I think we covered it pretty well. If Obama did belong to one of these groups at one time do you think it would be an awful thing and why?

You're free to point me to exactly which posts in this thread where you have addressed the subject.

Yes. Primarily because government policy based on the communist philosophy is destructive. If he (or anyone else) wishes to go form and live in a communist society voluntarily, so ne it. But if he (and others) wish to impose it onto others through the state...that's a problem.

Been out of town, but now back to AI:   

 

1.  The premise of this thread is 100%, confirmed fact.  One of his mentors was Frank Marshall Davis, who was literally a card carrying communist.  

 

2.  I was not a "big supporter" of the birther question.  I did state there unanswered questions Obama had not addressed.  I do still think there is a possibility he was not born in the U.S.  That said, I've seen enough to put the issue to rest in my mind--he was born here.  However, THAT said, he clearly participated in deception at some level in allowing himself to be labeled "Kenyan-born" by his literary agent for many years (as late as 2007).   

 

3.  Communism:  I think that fact that one of the Presidents mentors (a man he refers to by first name in his books) was a card-carrying communist is relevant.  You don't?
