Me last year on the fourth of July right before we burned this flag as celebration

10/10

No better than the Tumblr leftist pricks.

How’d you figure, seems like a perfectly reasonable way to exercise our property rights.But you know, no better than those who call for our property to be violently stolen from us.

Anti-social behavior, a lack of respect for our society, and a sense of victimhood. This is how not how a decent citizen celebrates for the fourth of July.

>antisocial “right before WE burned the flag”>disrespectful to society. That is a symbol of government. Society =/= goverment.
>sense of victimhood. Not sure where that came from at all to be honest. seems like you are looking for reasons to be mad, but you are doing a bad job of it. I “celebrate” the fourth by flying my flag upside down, historically it’s a distress symbol, but in more modern times it has come to show distress at the actions of our government, I think any decent (and informed) citizen should be distressed.

The definition of anti-social is: “contrary to the laws and customs of society, devoid of or antagonistic to sociable instincts or practices”. I think burning the American flag on the Fourth of July fits that definition, not to mention is that mark of an ideological fanatic. As Americans we do face a government that has many poor public policies. Being a rational human being, I never figured that makes the burning of our national symbol warranted. 

I don’t think burning what belongs to you needs to be warranted by anything. The government doesn’t represent me, nor does it recognize my fundamental human rights, so I will happily fly upside down or burn any symbol of it. You like the government, don’t want it disrespected, that’s your business, but pop off your high horse before you start with the vitriol and insults.

I’ve always been relatively friendly with libertarians, but when I see things like this, I think libertarians tend toward mirroring the liberal/left’s vanity and disrespect for social institutions. 

The more lefties that inundate the “libertarian” party, the less and less I can stomach it.

That’s my flag. I have fought to defend it, and would die to maintain it. I will strangle you with it if I have too .

No that’s his flag. His property. Not yours. It’s nothing more than a piece of fabric.

"That’s my flag. I have fought to defend it, and would die to maintain it. I will strangle you with it if I have too ."
Its remarkable how attached to a piece of cloth, irrational and outright psychopathic Statisim can make you.

Diane Ravitch on The Daily Show. 

Ravitch is the queen. If only the government would listen…

We would also address poverty directly. We would increase the minimum wage and make post-secondary education cheap or free, and we’d improve improve unemployment benefits and offer free job-training to the unemployed. 

Poverty is one of the few social ills where throwing money at the problem really does seem to work.

These are not radical, liberal ideas. In fact, in Europe most of them are associated with the more conservative parties, and many of them were associated with the American Republican party in the 80s. But the United States’s political climate is so different from anywhere else in the industrialized world that I fear we will just continue to get farther behind in education (and in % of people living in poverty) until we decide to make some big domestic investments.

At the same time, US military spending is bigger then rest of the world combined .

That `thought` in bold…I cant tell if its sarcasm or not? I think it is.

I don’t think it is :) Why exactly are you questioning it?

Remember if someone else does something horrible, you all lose your rights.

If the government does something horrible, they get to expand their power to mess with your rights

"The UK Government is about to pass legislation which will make any behaviour perceived to potentially ‘cause nuisance or annoyance’ a criminal offence. The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill also grants local authorities, police and even private security firms sweeping powers to bar citizens from assembling lawfully in public spaces. The Bill has successfully passed through the House of Commons without issue, and is now in the latter stages of review by the House of Lords, after which it will receive Royal Assent and become Law. Those who refuse orders under the new rules will face arrest, fines and even prison time."

Scriptonite Daily THE BIRTH OF A POLICE STATE: UK POLICE TO BE GRANTED SWEEPING NEW POWERS (via thinksquad)

The name of that bill is unbelievably dystopian, as the State blatantly asserts the right to control and punish your behavior according to their standards. 

Look back in history and think of a hero of yours.  Do you think they would have ever been allowed to do what they did under legislation like this?  

This is not progress for humanity.
