Retarded Occupy Wall Street Comments

Since my post on how I thought Occupy Wall Street is Stupid, I've been getting a lot of traffic. The vast majority has been quite positive, agreeing with my post. Over the last few days I've been getting very pro-occupy wall street comments and this mainly corresponds with the traffic dying down a bit. Plus occupier are being evicted. Anyway.

Normally I just delete comments that are so retarded. Normally I allow stupid, but if it falls into that fringe of catchy stupid/conspiracy crap it goes. I thought I'd share the ones I get here and people can see. I'll even reply to them. *More will be added as they come in.

It is an anti-corruption protest! What's wrong with the U.S. public demanding true representation in D.C. (the only thing being represented is the wants of corporations, who influence policy in every sphere- medicine, food, banking, you name it, so that the very people making the policies which regulate these industries are paid off by the industry themselves) it is a huge disservice to the American people, who deserve to have political representatives who act in the best interest of the constituents.

In short we are fighting for true CAPITALISM not Corporatism which we see today. Corporations having more rights than people and having NO responsibility. They are fighting to reinstate the Glass Steigel Act, which separates the banking arm from the investment arm of a bank. They want to audit the FED, that privately owned bank to which the U.S. public will always be in debted.

So the OWS is actually fighting for capitalism and democracy, corporations to abide by laws and morals, what is wrong with any of that?

I just can't get over the stupidity of this statement. It's one part Ron Paul retarded and one part Liberal. And you know that it is a good mix.

It is an anti-corruption protest!

No it's not. From the Occupy Wall Street website: "...aims to fight back against the richest 1% of people..." I at least hope you remember all the "We are the 99% crap". You're not the 99%, but that is another story. It's a socialist movement. One that isn't looking to "end corruption", but to distribute wealth away from the rich and give it to others.

What's wrong with the U.S. public demanding true representation in D.C. (the only thing being represented is the wants of corporations, who influence policy in every sphere- medicine, food, banking, you name it, so that the very people making the policies which regulate these industries are paid off by the industry themselves)

For me, this stuff falls into the realm of conspiracy theories. There always some group moaning about how the "big corporations" are running everything. Even though the corporations don't have the right to vote and pay taxes, while every American citizen of the age of 18 can vote, whether they pay taxes or not. It's almost as bad as the claim that people are too stupid to know who to vote for. The evil media brainwashes people into voting for certain candidates and no one else has the intellectual power to see past it, except for yourself.

In short we are fighting for true CAPITALISM

Not true. Nothing really to say but that.

Corporations having more rights than people and having NO responsibility.

Such as? Do they have the right to vote? I seriously would like to know because I actually own a small corporation, so I want to know what sort of bonus rights that I have (especially the ones about world domination).

 They are fighting to reinstate the Glass Steigel Act, which separates the banking arm from the investment arm of a bank.
That doesn't sound like "true CAPITALISM". In fact, I'm pretty sure the Glass Steigel Act does the complete opposite of what you stated.

They want to audit the FED, that privately owned bank to which the U.S. public will always be in debted.

Another glorious conspiracy theory. All that crazy Jekyll Island stuff and rich bankers planning to take over the world. The only problem with this is that it simply isn't true.

The reason I posted this comment is because it just shows you how the stupidity of fringe right and fringe left actually mix quite well. It's literally one part crazy Ron Paul and one part crazy Ralph Nader. Creepy.

The Pros And Cons of Capitalism

I thought I'd do a post on the pros and cons of capitalism. I think it is pretty apparent that capitalism is the best social system in existence and the only one that follows good moral values, such as individual freedom.

The Pros of Capitalism
You are free to make your own choices (right or wrong) in the market place.You own your life and the means to produce for your life.You can choose to run your own business or get a job with ease of government regulation.As a consumer, you get the highest quality of products for the cheapest prices.As a consumer, you get the highest variety of the types of goods and services you can purchase.You are free to innovate and invent without the government getting in your way.You don't have to pay taxes beyond that of the basics to protect your rights (police, courts, national defense, etc).You vote with your dollars. If you don't like a particular store, you can always shop somewhere else.You have the right to own property, which comes with …

Genetically Modified Foods Pros and Cons

I am a big fan of genetically modified foods and I think this is just another perfect example of what is one of the greatest things that science has ever done, yet it is completely demonized as an evil by other groups. Genetically modified foods are foods that have their DNA changed to help them thrive better in harsher conditions. With this type of technology we can produce more food per acre of land and have crops that are resistant to things like drought, disease and insects.

I know the idea of playing with the DNA seems scary, but it really isn't that revolutionary of a concept. Selective breading has been a process that has been going on for a long time. Selective breeding is probably happening in your life now by the mate you choose the offspring you have. The DNA changes every generation and there is nothing wrong with that.

The real issue I have is with people waging a propaganda war spreading lies and slanders against genetically modified foods. Things about splicing the DN…
