Great Stalin's Ghost
New ParadigmIf it seems like I take myself too seriously it's because I lack the talent and creativity to make the art and graphics to make a joke of political leanings I don't hold. Art and graphic ability have no bearing on taking oneself too seriously. Rather, taking oneself too seriously may be the effect of a serious humor impairment. Don't worry though, because there is help for those lacking what we know as a "sense of humor." To find out whether or not you are missing this important "sense", please take this simple test:
1. Why did the chicken cross the road?
(Clue: There is no "right" (uh oh, that is political, isn't it?) answer.)
Please, no help from comrade Red Rooster.
True except that my tone, mannerisms, etc aren't conveyed in text...leaving what? sarcasm? mockery?
KrasnodarComrade NP:The People's Cube, as you can see, is throughly populated by those who are diametrically opposed to your world view.
So why waste your time by coming here ?
Surely, there must be many forums that share your thoughts on Marxist economics.
Then you could have friends to converse and laugh with when talking about how stupid people like us are. Sounds like fun to me. Try " Whitehouse.gov", or perhaps a Bay area university. They are most helpful.
I am somewhat curious .......do you, perhaps, enjoy being summarily rejected ?
And a piece of advise..........lose" New Paradigm ". It makes you sound like a college freshman or graduate from ten years ago who used that poor, overworked term to try and bump their essays up a notch by making their statements seem profound. Now it does quite the opposite.
I do see that. It's precisely why I did come here. I don't see debating with those that assume they are opposed to my world view. (when I asked if anyone opposed the speaker of the house having a jet or if they thought of nyc as a failure nobody seemed to mind).
My view is different than yours but regarding "being summarily rejected", some points were, some weren't(?). Isn't there at least a satisfaction that your points as well as others at this site are seen by the intended target?
If this is an inside joke site for friends that wishes to remain that way I will respect that. I wasn't aware of that being the case when I posted. I assumed (perhaps incorrectly) that most people just prefer to not enter a situation where they are out numbered. That's something I don't mind doing. Might I ask if you attended schools that had you out numbered politically? If you did would you have backed down? I don't think you would have.
I have no interest in laughing or making jokes about any of you being "stupid" with people who are "marxists". I don't know any of you personally so why insult you or anyone else personally, behind your back? I also don't believe anyone who could make a site like this is stupid, quite the opposite. If I believed anyone to be so I would then feel as if I were wasting my time.
As for the profile name, what can I say other than what I said before, I'm not that creative. It was (as you closely guessed) the title of the text book used in Brooklyn College for all in the teachers program, which I thought would be my attempt at satire considering the theme of this site.
Regards to you as well.
Krasnodar, I don't know what you're talking about, I am a dedicated member of The Party, as are most all comrades on this glorious peoples website. Are you some kind of Rethuglikan plant? Double agent? Kapitalist spy? Help stop Krasnodar The Kapitalist Spy!
ABCRex - The prole has no answers to previously stated questions, so yes, it's all about immanentizing of the eschaton.
My chicks and I get glorious government assistance from the Federal greenback printing press and no longer have to worry about fascist work in kapitalist Amerika. In fact I have learned that the more chicks I have, the more I can escape the fascist kapitalist world. I know that the money comes from fascist kapitalist pigs and their piggly wiggly children whom they teach to have outdated notions like upward mobility, work ethic, and self worth. We in the party can then take these kapitalist exploitation units and subvert their backwards fascist ways in order to get more of their kapitalist exploitation units for The Common Good™.
Yes, comrade, the War On Poverty has done wonders to create more poverty and a greater disparity between rich and poor. SUCCESS!!! Planned Parenthood kills two out three black babies just like Margaret Sanger the Eugenicist proscribed. SUCCESS!!! (Oh, but we in The Party are not racist, it's those Rethuglikans and Fundamental Amerikan's that are RACCCIIISSSSTTT!) Welfare Statism has killed and morally degraded more black people than Democrat KKK could have ever dreamed of... SUCCESS!!! (Again, we in The Party are not racist, it's those Rethuglikans and Fundamental Amerikan's that are RACCCIIISSSSTTT! But hey, we are doing well to instigate the racial divide and race wars Comrade Marx proscribed.) Our people's trial lawyers have done more to raise deductibles and coerce the kapitalist pig doctors to quit volunteering their services in the name of The Common Good™ than even Lenin could have dreamed of, we in The Party will take care of those proles now you kapitalist pig doctors! Oh, I could go on comrade, but what's important note is that...
We are winning comrade! We have cooked the frog, and now we must do like comrade Ted Ral says and RISE UP in violent revolution against the kapitalist machine. What are you waiting for comrade? Go out into the streets! Smash the windows of all the merchants in the neighborhood! Blow up your car! Let the Revolution begin!
Comrade Krasnya Pyetukh : You beat me to the punch ! And I take no offense concerning your charges towards me....what would any decent collective be without accusations? !
" Kapitalist Spy".....sounds very clandestine. Do I get to have one of those super secret-ty spy numbers......like 007....or Colonel 7.62 ? That's stylin' !
Red RoosterGreat Stalin Comrades! This is glorious, our little
Comrades,If you notice small print, the full name of the publication is [Waste of] Time magazine.
Listen, all I heard him say was somethin' about the universe and an enema."
Krasnodar............." No, I haven't the slightest clue as to what A. Rex was talking about.......
Listen, all I heard him say was somethin' about the universe and an enema."
I'll be using both hands on this one. You won't feel a thing. Nurse...?

It was (as you closely guessed) the title of the text book used in Brooklyn College for all in the teachers program, which I thought would be my attempt at satire considering the theme of this site. I hate to get serious here, and I apologize profusely to everyone for doing so, but in real life (you know, outside of the Cube) I've been teaching elementary school long enough to teach some of the children of former students. If you are going to spend your life teaching children, you will want to ignore "paradigms" and most of the other useless B.S. they teach at teacher colleges, and instead start reading E. D. Hirsch and others like him, and investigating a good phonetic language arts program.
New ParadigmThe "marxist" doctrine has had elements put into practice in america long ago and has done well. America is neither capitalist nor marxist, it is a synthesis of both.
And for this very reason America is in the tank economically. With the government's hands in the economy, they can make something artificially happen (like make housing prices low), but what happens when the payer can't make the payment because the interest rates catch up, now what happens when this happens in mass?
Quote:For those that have lived their lives in big cities many will tend towards larger government and taxes then those who live in sparsely populated areas. Nyc requires a larger police department and fire department (not volunteer like smaller communities) for instance. Should these departments be cut or their employees take less?
There are people that profit greatly living and doing business in nyc and they knowingly pay higher taxes for the services provided by the average people.
Do you think nyc is a failure? That police and firemen are the culprits?
If it seems like I take myself too seriously it's because I lack the talent and creativity to make the art and graphics to make a joke of political leanings I don't hold.
By this logic, Rush Limbaugh should still be living/doing business in New York! Also by that logic, New York should have the greatest police and fire departments in the country and yet check out these statistics on crime. Now don't misunderstand me, the government's primary job is to protect its people, and the police and fire department are the core of that duty, my point is, if New York has a high tax rate to pay for them, why is its violent crime rate at or above the national average, and don't say "because you can't prevent all violent crimes", because that's a big fat "doy!" I'd go off on a wild guess here, but maybe it's because the tax dollars aren't paying for just the police and fire department. . . hmm. . .
I wish to offer congratulations to you as many will now refer to you as the "useful idiot". Do not think of this title as a pejorative but rather an accomplishment resulting from you're fundamental lack of moral purity. You are well on the path to become the most equal among equals like our glorious leader
New ParadigmIf it seems like I take myself too seriously it's because I lack the talent and creativity to make the art and graphics to make a joke of political leanings I don't hold.
Despair not for this lack of talent as we all seek to gain this level equality. Many comrades have undergone countless Jiffy-lobos to attain your level of socialist nirvana. Remember that you are not a cog in the evil Kapitalist machine but a tool in the box of social justice.

As said around the Cube, "there will not always be a Britian". Liberalism is a poison of a nation, and here lays proof.
