Question of the Day

I've been mulling over something in the wake of Tuesday's events, and I thought I'd put it out there. This obviously doesn't apply everywhere, because the country is pretty big and diverse (I'm looking at you, Delaware and Massachusetts), but in general, I've noticed something about elections:

When conservative candidates pretend not to be conservative, they lose. When liberal candidates pretend not to be liberal, they win.

I'm pretty sure I already know the answer, but why do you think this is?

Question of the Day

Why is it that when unemployment was at 5%, it was a hopeless recession, but when unemployment is at 9% even by charitable standards, it's a "summer of recovery?"

Question of the Day

Have you ever noticed that Marxists, despite their claim to represent "the people," show a stunning disregard for the actual desires and actions of those people, preferring instead to consolidate power within a group of unelected, unaccountable "elites" and micromanage the people's lives?

Bonus thought: When I hear a Marxist talking about "false consciousness," I get a mental image of said Marxist muttering "wake up, everybody!" in his sleep.

Have I mentioned that I fucking hate Marxism?

(Inspiration for this post here.)

While I'm on the topic of Marxism, it's interesting to me that its proponents believe human nature is malleable and/or perfectible, and that all we need is the right government to help us reach the promised collectivist utopia. And yet, every time Marxism is implemented on a massive scale, it results in death, destruction, misery, and no change whatsoever in the fundamental nature of the citizenry.

From this, we can come to a couple of conclusions:

1) Human nature does, in fact, have its limits.
2) Even if human nature can change, most Marxists are just incompetent, power-hungry twats who wouldn't know a good idea if it violently fucked them in the ass, so we'll never know anyway.

What do you think?

Question of the Day

Does anyone else find it really creepy that liberals have basically abandoned their previous attempts at giving a positive spin to their belief that they know what's best, and we should all just shut up, bend over, and take it? I mean, it's refreshing that they're finally being honest, but the fact that they can even get away with it in the United States of America...something just isn't right about it.

I don't think I have to go into a lot of detail here, aside from mentioning that the repeated characterization of the Tea Party movement as "selfish" (and racist, but that's applied to any conservative movement) is what's really setting me off. I've seen the TP philosophy summed up by its opponents as "fuck you, got mine." Apparently, "fuck you, got yours" is more desirable. Why is it that wanting to keep what you've earned is bad, but wanting to take away what other people have earned and give it to people who haven't earned it is noble?

Something tells me that in a true liberal utopia, the tax rate would be 100%, and everyone's earnings would be distributed as the morally superior philosopher kings in D.C. saw fit. Of course, there would be a little extra for certain people so they could go see a movie once a month or something...assuming it's been approved beforehand. After all, it's important to give the benighted segment of the populace the necessary bread and circuses, but we wouldn't want their impressionable minds to be influenced by the wrong messages.

I'll touch on this in more detail if I ever get around to writing that essay I mentioned a few days ago, but I'm not sure when that'll happen.

On a related note, I always promise myself that I'm going to start responding to comments more and then forget about it, but rest assured that I read each and every one that isn't spam, so feel free to share whatever thoughts you may have on whatever I happen to be wasting my time writing about.

I've kind of hinted at this before, but if nobody was reading SIT, I wouldn't keep coming back. Once I've actually earned some free time by making some damn money, I'll try to be more attentive to the blog.

So yeah.

Question of the Day

Now with answers!

Q: How do you tell the difference between someone who genuinely doesn't understand why "teabagger" is a derogatory term and someone who is just feigning ignorance of its sexual connotations after being called out on it?

A: The former will usually ask what the term means (or look it up themselves), while the latter will simply ask why people find it offensive. Doesn't tea come in bags?

I'm sure there are exceptions, but this is a pattern I've noticed.

There seems to be a theme developing here...

Anyway, today's question is this: Has it occurred to any of the "boycott Arizona" retards that actually enforcing current immigration law is a type of "immigration reform?"

Question of the Day

Something that the last line of this post made me think about:

Many "progressives" and other borderline/full Marxists seem to be highly approving of illegal immigration. Has nobody pointed out to them that turning a blind eye to the large number of illegal workers in the U.S. enables the exploitation of a lower class by a more privileged class?

How can leftists believe that there is a finite amount of wealth, and that one person having money leads to other people having less money, but that massively expanding healthcare will not lead to a decline in the quality of said healthcare?

...I probably could phrase this better, but you get the point, right?

Question of the Day

Have you ever had one of those days where everything that happens seems like part of a larger plot to piss you off as much as possible? Because that's the kind of day this has been.

Fuck you, universe. My life is shitty and meaningless enough without you fucking it up even more.

Follow-up question: Is it normal for over half of the emails and online messages a person sends over the course of a few weeks to be completely ignored, even when they're important and/or time-sensitive, or am I the only one who has this problem?

And yes, this is part of the reason I'm so fucking pissed today. Unless virtually everyone I'm trying to get in touch with has suddenly gone on vacation to places with no Internet service, there's no fucking excuse for this many people to be ignoring me at once. If you don't want to talk to me, just fucking say so, assholes.

(NOTE: The above probably does not apply to anyone reading SIT at the moment)

Is there such a thing as a Most Boring Life contest? I think I would be nearly impossible to beat.

Question of the Day

People who aren't in college: How often do you encounter Marxism and feminism in the real world?

For the amount of time I've spent studying them in my classes here, you'd think they were the only two social philosophies in the history of humanity.

...Or is that "huwomynity?"

Fucking pseudo-intellectual liberal arts bullshit...

Question of the Day

Just wondering...does anybody care that I rarely post about politics anymore? It seems weird that I'm in the middle of a poli-sci minor and I barely talk about that stuff. I's not like I'm going to go back to the old, pre-2004 election days, but I feel like SIT has become nothing but me bitching about classes and uploading my crappy guitar recordings.

Although it's a lot less stressful this way...

Is it some universal rule of college that all fraternity members have to gather on the porch of their house and play crappy music when the weather gets warm? It's so hilariously clichéd.

Is it just my imagination, or have the grammatical standards of the blogosphere gone way down in the past couple months? I'm finding errors in practically every post and comment I read these days.

Question of the Day

Okay, totally unrelated to anything I've written lately...

When you get a song stuck in your head, and you can't remember what it's called, do you ever have the experience where you think, maybe just for a split second, that it's possible to find out the name of the song with Google?

"Hmm...I can't remember what this song is called. Maybe if I use 'doo doo da doo dee doo doo da da doo' as a search term, I can find out..."

No matter how many times this happens, I still have the moment where I believe that it's possible to do a sound search (and no, I haven't actually tried it). Someone needs to get to work on this.

Question of the Day

This is kind of a repeat of something from a post I wrote in November, but since it didn't get any comments...

I've been pondering something lately. People often complain that laws against same-sex marriage, abortion, and other things should not be be passed, because this would require politicians to "legislate morality." However, these same people often claim that the war in Iraq is immoral and should therefore be stopped. Why is it wrong to legislate morality in some circumstances, but perfectly acceptable to insist on legislation of morality in others?

I'd really, really, really like a logical answer to that one, but logic doesn't seem to matter these days.
