    Pretty sure the way it works in Most people's minds is if you get something for giving nothing.
    I.e Begging or scrounging.
    Otherwise, what you're telling me is, everyone is a mooch in some way.
    Cool, that makes us all mooches. I mooch off the government according to you, you, if you have a job, mooch off your company. Your company mooches off of other people. Those other people mooch off of their jobs, and so on and so forth. . .

    and given 1) the realities of poverty and 2) the realities of where these government benefits actually wind up, most people's minds are hilariously off base.

    it's beautiful what someone can do with a steady stream of specifically-directed snark

    (though if i'm still quoting supply-side jesus, clearly it's impossible to mooch off of anyone and anything in the private sector)

    It's not quite the same, but I'm just sort of imagining corporations owning their own military units.

    Gives new meaning to the phrase "hostile takeover," doesn't it.

    Yeah, I'm sure the idea that an extremist right-wing majority has drowned out -- and, in some cases, hijacked -- a legitimate entity with views that are worth hearing about is ~liberal bias~.

    This ain't ****in' Gawker Network "journalism" we're talking about here.

    (Yes, to be fair, that's not the same as what he said. I don't care.)

    i respect and (roughly 40% of the time) agree with burkean conservatives and certain strains of libertarians

    but then i'm also not a "liberal" unless that term has become a blanket phrase for "to the left of david frum".

    on the surface, it most certainly is the same as what i said - i specifically used "current" to get that point across.

    Libertarianism has some respectable ideas, but I don't think wholesale deregulation, as a general rule, is a good idea.

    yeah i should clarify that they're mostly left-libertarians (and that that 40% mostly consists of non-economic policy positions)

    Extremism isn't really good either way, honestly. Unfortunately, centrism is kind of buried in America. (And when it does exist, it gets accused of being extremism, for some reason.)

    one extreme is one party's mainstream

    the other extreme garnered maybe 600,000 combined votes nationwide in the last presidential election out of 130 million.

    Well Centrism in America is less about "We come together to work things out" and more "If I'm not going to get what I want you're not going to get what you want"

    it's actually more "let's complain that people aren't Very Serious when their solutions to certain policy issues aren't uniformly 'privatize it'" nowadays

    Yeah, that's a pretty good point, too. Kind of the reverse of how it should work.

    There's a specific term for it I learned in Social Psychology, but it's not exclusive to politics. It's kind of a dumb human behavior in general.

    Well, to be honest, how many terms do we need for "humans are assholes"?

    Okay kids enough politics, let's play some Pokemon XY battles because the "battle me" thread is pretty much useless (not to mention the rules they have are obsolete, why are they running off 5th Gen Smogon rules again?).

    I'll go first. Message me and I will play XY against you.
