The markets just went ape shit... http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704370704575227754131412596.html?mod=WSJ_hpp_LEADNewsCollectionToday might have single handedly destroyed the slow gain of confidence that has been building up over the last few months. Is this huge drop simply a fluke or are we really facing a worse crash then we say back in 2008?
After having an argument with a feminist I realized that a lot of her arguments sounded similar to something a KKK member would say.
For example, this is a statement she made:
"A lot of today's problems are due to men and their patriarchal society, had it not been for their oppressive society we would be a lot better off because men are the main problem hurting this country...(later in the agrument) it is the fault of men that we make less money."
Now, replace the words "men" and "patriarchal" with "black people" and it sounds like something a KKK member would say.
Both movements consider themselves to be victims of oppression and feel some sort of hatred towards another group with really no justified reason. Both rationalize to the point where their arguments make no sense and use statistics that have some sort of correlation but no causation. Both target the young, less intelligent, and outcast members of society to become their followers. So, they might be one different ends of the political spectrum but they work in similar fashion.
The state of Massachusetts has decided that they would rather go against their liberal tendencies and vote in a Republican.
This brings the senate to a total of 59 Democrats(2 are independents) and 41 Republicans. They can no longer bypass a fillibuster without reconciliation.
Every time I go to this site I get the impression that these people honestly believe that Obama is a god and can do no wrong while anyone who is involved with the Republicans is the Anti-Christ and is out to destroy America.
