The oldest and most successful tactic in war is starting to work for IS !!

How long till others see there opportunity to take advantage of the situation.

so far it's all happening as it should ,no surprise to me .

“The only thing new in the world is the history you do not know.” ― Harry S. Truman

The 'ending' should be the same (unfortunately), as it has always been.

Philistinism

:D

Philistinism: In the fields of philosophy and æsthetics, the term philistinism describes the social attitude of anti-intellectualism that undervalues and despises art, beauty, and intellect; ‘the manners, habits, and character, or mode of thinking of a philistine’.[1] A philistine person is the man or woman who is smugly narrow of mind and of conventional morality whose materialistic views and tastes indicate a lack of and indifference to cultural and æsthetic values.

Seems to be a very smug, and self-serving attitude.

130,000 Kurds fleeing IS / ISIS greeted by Turkish soldiers while Turkey "helps", well who?

Themselves. Or what they perceive to be in Their Best Interest's. As Everyone else.

i have low expectations of policemen as a group.
Since policemen are not Oppressed, they have every opportunity to prove themselves.
Yet time after time policemen show themselves to not be worthy of public trust whether it be police brutality, crooked cops, disability fraud, or general abuse of power.
I wouldn't call that bigotry since policemen have all the power to change this perception.

Of course OFF Topic. But that only applies to my posts. Typical.

297902...

Well... Very interesting post regarding your thinking. Typical.

Sounds the same as some Right Wing Non-Thinking Nut's ranting about Professor's at a Liberal Arts University. No difference.

Just an update regarding my Working Life. Every Silly Post wishes to mention - negatively. Typical.

#1 - WAS a Policeman LESS than 50% of my Working Life. And yes... I did help many, many persons not becoming victims. Stopping Baby's, and other's, from being murdered. Comforting many during great tragedies in their lives. Very bad Occupation.

#2 - If you include the Volunteer Activities, I now, and for the past few years, participate in: It is much less than 50%.

Oh by the way. The Racial Aspect of this discussion, was started by other's. You know who they are.
..

It now appears that you are unaware that this thread is about racism. Did you read the OP?

Of course he did, but when you want to construct straw all over the place, you need to change the subject all the time or it gets blown down.

Sorry, I was being sarcastic. The 'Others' were the OP.

I was 'Accused' of responding to the OP. I thought THAT was So silly, other Poster's would understand the Sarcasm.

My bad.

Methinks someone is sarcastically-challenged, among other things.

What was the important discussion again?
Oh right, "The Economics of Oppression".
For a moment there i thought the discussion was about the low expectations
some have of the Right and the Left as groups, and how that would be bigotry.

"The Economics of Oppression" does not include Bigotry, from any Group?

Then what is the Foundation of "The Oppression"? JUST Greed?

Oh by the way. The Racial Aspect of this discussion, was started by other's. You know who they are.

They make silly, unintelligent, attacks against certain races, and 'go crazy', with very, very long, multi-paragraphed rants. Finally ending up accusing 'The Responder' with Trolling, if you DARE to respond, and challenge them. Typical.

btw what is a Super Majority?
In London, they had a few years ago a law that regulated the size of a taxi car trunk.
Why? It is to fill it with enough hay to the horse :)

The Amend The American Constitution:

2/3 Majority Vote of Both Houses of Congress (Senate & House of Representatives)

Then: 3/4 Majority Vote of The States.

Note: No National popular vote. The President as no Authority, Vote, nor is even mentioned in this matter.

Actually Clyde i agree with you on that let's send the nutters back there and save money on police and the courts and the jails and then drop just 1 big ass mother F^&*(* Bomb and be done with the whole dam area .

Muslims are not bad.
Terrorists like Jihadists are.
Even Australia, Britain and Sweden have some of them.
BOOM!!!

janneseti...
Of course you are correct. Just the passions of the moment. 'Venting' does allow the anger to dissipate. Just Human Nature.
Just hope, for the sake of ALL Sides: The Jihadist's don't go 'too far'.

Has anyone here met a Jihadist? (it rhymes with terrorist).
Dont Think so. Well I have to ask my neighbours and friends about it.
Jihadists are strange peoples.

Work, and assist, everyday, with those who have been 'There'. Including those assisting The Kurd's, in their fight against The Jihadist's.

Don't believe they have ever met a Live Jihadist's. But they Have/Are helping Their Victims.

Listening to what these Maniac Murder's have, and are presently doing to the Innocent Populations: I consider The Jihadist's to be nothing more than 21st Century NAZI's, and should be Thought of, and 'Treated', the same.

TRuEQ... In response to your post:

I think it is more a question of not being able too...
The reason is unknown though....

Thank you for Thoughtful Response. Believe there can be an Intelligent Discussion regarding this matter.

I may disagree with you. You may disagree with me. But... Let's not allow this Important Discussion to degenerate into Silly, Shallow, Unintelligent, Name Calling, as below, and others show.

Completely ignoring the US government can also still go bad and end up murdering millions. Look if guns actually prevented government tyranny, then you would have a point. But it doesn't do that, so your point about 'European thinking' vs 'American thinking' is pointless.

Мишель...

Do understand, there is a Fundamental Difference between American, and other Philosophy's, regard this Subject.

Europeans, are continuously 'Tinkering' with their Systems, in an attempt to 'Get it Right'. Sometimes with disastrous results, sometimes not, over the century's.

America does understand the Law of 'Unintended Consequences'. Therefore, it is not about 'Getting it Right', but about 'Not Getting it Wrong'.

Therefore the 2nd Amendment, as ALL other Provision's in our Constitution: May take a decades long debate, and a Super Majority, to Change. Not just the 'Political Passions of the Moment'.

The 2nd Amendment may be Changed, or Repealed in the future. But not until a long debate, and a Super Majority Vote.

Just the American Way. May be wrong. But not stupid.

It's seven o'clock here.
A bit foggy and early birds are 'singing'
Lots of crows which make me think of Hitchcock.
And Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.
We all like the First Amendment.
The second? What the F''K.

janneseti...

As I said in the past.

The USA has always been a Chaotic, and Violent Country.

It does not value, as others do: Order, Stability, nor Social Coherence, above Individual Liberty's.

I would be hard pressed, to know HOW, one would impose Order, Stability, or Social Coherence, upon a Large Population, Large Area Country. With ALL the People's of The World represented. With all their Different Languages, Ethnic Group's, Culture's, Morality, Religion's, etc.

If one can figure out the above: Who's Order - Who's Stability - Who's Social Coherence, would be Enforced?

Would the American civil war have happened if they did not have the right to bare arms ?

Glenn...

Yes.

Most of the American Civil War, especially in the beginning, was fought by State Army's. Both North and South.

Note: 40% of the present USA Military Forces are State Army's. Who, in addition to the Federal Oath: Swear Allegiance to their State and Governor.

You have to understand how the Military Force's of The USA (Past and Present) are composed, before making that statement.

Low Expectations, of any group of people, do not equal Bigotry?

Please explain why? Either way.

Those attacking this Poster for asking this question, shows the truth of what I am saying. You are AFRAID of the answer.

Sorry to burst the bubble of The Left.

I have always held The Left, in the same Contempt, as The Right.

Just as The Right does. The Left, after all is said and done, shows their true nature by their Unthinking, Personal, and Crude Attacks, when confronted with the reality of their 'views', as shown in the above question.

Prove me incorrect by answering the above simple question: Why doesn't Low Expectations, of any group, not equal Bigotry? Without any personal attacks.

Is that possible? You know my answer. Prove me wrong!

ML1...

Very good troll response from you there. Completely ignore the rest of the post and real world facts to instead get personal and stir up the FUD.

Can you get real?

Or is this all a game of denial and trolling?...

The quote above, does show I am correct about the true nature, of many of the Warmest.

There is no need, in an Intelligent Discussion regarding this discussion, for this Silly, or Worse, Personal Attack.

First you start with a Non-Thinking Personal Attack, and then demand a reply to the rest?

I am not denying anything. I am just asking questions, saying prove it, and respond to incorrect predictions.

Is someone else, in this Thread, able to respond to these simple, but important questions, without name calling?

Neither Wiggo, nor Es99, understand, or fail to admit: I am NOT denying Racism, Institutional Racism, nor any other vile and evil things.

I believe Black People, as ALL Other Oppressed people, can succeed on their own.

Those White People, believing Black People can't: Are exhibiting the 'Bigotry of Low Expectations'.

All the personal attacks, denying, misrepresenting Posts, deflection from the above: Just confirms that truth.

Clyde i don't wish to argue about the right to bare arms .

All i will say is that history has proven that sort of arguments like what you use are total crap .

It is a "assumed wright " any gov that thinks taking the weapons away from people will make it easy'er for them to supress a people is forgetting about all the revolutions that have been .You only have to look at the wars we have had in the last couple of decades . Just because the people have guns will not stop a dictator from coming to power .

A bad man will throw out the constitution any way so having it there is a total waste of time , unless you have a vested interest in making the guns in the first place , profit ! is the main reason it is pushed by the gun lobby and you just lap it up B/S and all .

And there is the proof . A dictator will not care about the right to bare arms .
And the people will make there own arms very quickly even if a gov takes them away if they wish to overthrow them . So the whole argument you use is total B/S

The king of England had better arms and a real army but that did not stop Cromwell from over taking the King . The King of France wasn't able to stop the people from cutting his head off either .

Stop lisening to the gun lobby . Just look at history .

Never mind that his sweeping generalisations about Europe and the US seems to have completely ignored the genocide against the native americans, or the deaths caused by the slave trade.

It must be nice to live in Clyde's bubble.

Everybody get personal against me. That's your problem. Been attacked by much more Interesting People.

Who ignored Defeating other's to gain territory, like Europe. Genocide against Indians? We killed them the Grand European Tradition. We were Descendant's of Europeans. Must have been in the blood. Unfortunately [sic], the Indians where I live, are Much Wealthier than The Victor's.

When attacking another, first look in the mirror. Why do you believe you are looking at something Superior? I don't know.

Slavery ignored? Wasn't part of the discussion regarding the Historical Corruption, and Abuse, of Any Government given power. Controlling Free/Independent People's Weapon's, as ONE Example of the dangers of Government's having complete power over people. The Silliness, and Stupidly, of those Trusting any Government.

Just a deflection.

But. I do find these type of Posts to be Moderately Interesting, when killing time. Does give me a chuckle.

For someone who complains about others "SHOUTING" you certainly have double standards of your own there CLYDE (BTW, highlighting is totally different to SHOUTING, if you can realise that that is).

Your posts are full of SHOUTS, not to mention SHOUTING your own NAME to start with, and you still bounce around all over the place, right, left, up or down, just as it suits you to get an argument out of others (as most of us reckon).

I'd really feel pretty sad for you CLYDE except for the fact that almost everytime that you post all I can see in my mind are pictures of either Sheriff Buford T. Justice or Sheriff J.W. Pepper talking your talk.

How you expect anyone to take you seriously at all is totally beyond me, but then again I'm probably to centered in all my ways to understand your bouncing personality at all (except that you do it for your own entertainment I take it?).

Though you really should re-read a lot of your posts because if you didn't realise it already you just come across to a lot of us as many types of "-ists" (the subject depends on the type of "-ist" that you display).

So really the only thing that you "hit on the head" is yourself, but thank you for letting us know how you think anyway and for keeping us entertained with your boring comedy. ;-)

Cheers.

Wiggo...

You do like to get personal. The 'Shoot the Messenger' tone of your above post is, believe it - or not, very entertaining.

I will attempt to be 'Less Boring' in the future.

Cheerio

The Liberal White 'Racist Thinking' is that Black people are Inferior, and therefore MUST be considered Children. Who cannot be held responsible for their failure's, and do not expect any success's. They NEED Assistance from their 'Superior's'. AKA 'White Man's Burden'.

That is a straw man argument. And for context, I speak as a 51-year-old white male liberal, who's lived his entire life in South Africa.

Stating that those who believe that Black People can't 'Make it' on their own, as other Races have, are themselves Racist, is a 'straw man' argument. Why?

Looks like I hit the 'nail on the head'.

Because "white liberals" don't think that.

Treating a Black People with less responsibility for their wrongful acts, than White/Asian person's. IE: "You have to understand".

Never heard a White Liberal say that about a White Hillbilly, with a third grade education, spitting chewing tobacco, and his mother and sister are the same person, committing a bad act, or saying something racist. While you hear this phrase continually, regarding some Black University Professor, or other Black Professional.

It is called: 'Bigotry of Low Expectations'.
