I will be chronicling my conversations with those who appear to be unaware of social awareness, and quite surprisingly, comfortable with our current system of administration thank you very much!
Behold, the masses (Their identities shall be concealed for their own protection):
Topic: NBC's Golf Tournament Pledge of Allegiance
I was wondering when someone would mention this whole thing. NBC having to apologize for an editing judgement call is silly, particularly when one considers the original pledge did not contain the phrase Under God in it. And, isn't being upset over leaving that and the word indivisible pretty divisive???
Rhonda, you are so dead on target with that one.
What ever happened to the concept of our nation coming together on a unified front?
Clearly the American public are divided towards the concept of living "under God" and a very jealous and aggravated one at that.
That junk should have never been altered in the 50's to appease some capitalistic intent forcing their religion down our throats.
What's that whole analogy of Children of God and sheep or lambs or something like that?
A mindless/directional-less flock of cattle... sounds about right huh?
Interesting that you use a capitalist website "blogger" to ask for donations for you blog. That is an awful lot of capitalism going on under the guise of anti-capitalism.
Do you hold a job in this capitalist system? Do you purchase the fruits of the capitalist system? Televisions, computers, ipods/iphones/android cellphones to chat with your friends over capitalist designed and financed systems? Or, have you completely gone off the grid? If not. Save your blathering for the time you live what you preach.
I'm an atheist capitalist, and laugh at the fact you start with a comment of "those who appear to be aware of social awareness."
You must be unaware that the system you deride has produced more prosperity for more people than any other system in history, including communism, which has been tried several times, and has failed spectacularly each time.
Even the chinese couldn't pull themselves out of their hole until they decided to allow capitalism in to save their economy.
It is the only system that doesn't ignore the fact that people are not uniformly intelligent, talented and aggressive. Those people will rise to the top of every system, and they will make certain that they gain more than the average worker.
I've built businesses in Asia, Europe, the U.S., and conducted business in China and the former U.S.S.R.
Very few people outside those countries have a clue how dismal prospects were in those countries until capitalism was allowed to work its magic.
Is capitalism without its own problems? No. It is a system run by people who, like in any system, are subject to the corrupting influences of power and money.
Socially aware? You may be, but you are also economically naive.
By the way, my name is Richard McCargar, try not to hide behind a pseudonym when you conduct your courageous dialogs.
You can see that I don't hide.
Fantastic! Thanks for one of the more passionate responses toward my blog. Although I had to sit and wait my turn in order to make my rebuttal while sifting through the pessimistic vomit you continuously spewed onto my board without offering any intellectual encouragement, how typical.
Glad to see you’ve maintained businesses in multiple areas around the globe, that must provide a descent amount of self-confidence to prove you’re not exactly a half-wit roaming the earth. You spotted my donation section on my page; that above any other artistic and literary component illustrated on my blog, how observant. Have you visited any other Marxist/Communistic/Progressively Socialistic webpages lately? They all have similar charitable engines running, as the whole concept of spreading awareness depends on connecting/strengthening members of the cause.
Unfortunately, money talks in this chaotic society we live in, the only way a voice can be heard is through connections & clout. The only way a “radical” voice can be heard is through maintaining a grassroots campaign of tsunami-sized proportions; if our concept of money has to be exchanged for that to happen, so be it. You would be totally remiss if you ignored/disregarded that fact while maintaining operations in a capitalistically dominated arena. The saying of “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” has definite meaning when it comes to that fact.
Sad, I though you would have more to offer furthering the discussion towards the religious permeation within our society, given your $2.00 honorary PhD from Logidea University. Way to go, a crowning achievement among men! All jokes aside, I’ve never heard of doctorofdisbelief.com before, looks interesting, thanks for that. I’ll start looking into it even more, looks interesting.
You were remiss in not showing the courage to discuss this using your name.
You made no rebuttal.
If this is the way you plan to teach the world, you have lost before you have begun.
Why don't you fund yourself? Insufficiently successful to do so?
My name is not for discussion.
A. Silly men shouldn't post silly information for silly people to use silly search tools in order to dive into personal affairs (address, work, car, family members, the works).
B. Even the Pope and Malcolm X were clever enough not to disclose personal names and information.
C. We haven't established any kind of rapport, I don't even know you, I don't think I will ever want to, plus, you still haven't asked me nicely :c)
Ummmm, with the blog only 1-week old, it appears to be progressively building a collective of like-minded individuals; individuals who offer collaborative comments and intellectual support towards this cause.
Not pushing some cheap embroidered t-shirt with a logo, that's farmed out of some sweat-shop extorting migrant workers for pennies on the dollar: that's pure capitalism...
So....When are we going to address pertinent matters at hand with more of a fruitful/intelligent debate?
Nothing huh...just spite?
Oh ok, moving onward...
Do you really think that not using your name will save you, if someone wants to find you in person? Remember what happened with TamTamPamela, on YouTube, when her trolling videos finally went over the line? A few dozen pizzas showed up at her door, apparently.
If hackers want to find you from your internet posts, they'll find you, if they're any good. Your digital fingerprints are all over everything you do online, unless you go to extreme measures, setting up multiple proxy servers for everything you do online. Even then, you're traceable. It's just more difficult.
Yeah, the only reason I even hide my full name is that I don't want this stuff to appear in Google searches that any potential employers might make. My last name is quite uncommon. I know for a fact that there is only one other Joseph in the country with my last name, and he's a second cousin, I think it is ... maybe third. He's once-removed, anyway, so the numbers get a little abstract.
If I can get my standup comedy career going and don't have to work in I.T. anymore, my last name is going right back up there.
