Yeah FDR is one of the worst presidents in the history of this country. Sure he inherited a bad situation but his solution was a massive warfare/welfare state. It didn't work. I'm not talking about consumer protections which are a tiny part of the bigger picture here. FDR administration was a catastrophe.

He had a big part in creating the military industrial complex and the American global militarism that we still to this day can not end that wastes us trillions. Fuck consumer protections if that's the cost of it! A murderous empire that continuously starts wars under false pretenses and the countless millions of people who are dead from it.

Enjoy your international graveyards and enslavement to the corporate socialist elite. Consumer protecitons. LOL you think you're protected??! ?!hahahahahha


I think all that tinfoil on your head has some negative impact on your brain wave activity. You really have no clue do you?

Do you really think that the US would have been better off had there NOT been a New Deal? An impoverished empire is soooooo much better than an industrial empire?? Really? Tell that to the citizens of North Korea.

Enjoy drinking your Malk. Just like China. No consumer protection at all, just do what you want.

Meh, they have some social services in China. If you want True Capitalism, Somalia is the place to be. No regulations, just the free market, like God intended. I'm sure LittleMe will be on the first flight he can catch, so he doesn't have to live in Communist America.

Read this article and learn about the 'protections' that Beamer touts. This is socialism at work for you. Central planning propaganda bullshit that has done tremendous damage to the general health and welfare of the country. Don't believe the misleading lies of socialists and their childish idiotic logic! You are not protected. Be responsible for yourself. Be your own government.

the New Deal, that awful piece of socialist bullcrap that was the government overstepping its bounds and creating a protected middle class!

That's propaganda rhetoric and bullshit that TND was good. TND was a massive waste of resources. The middle class wasn't created by central planning. New technologies did far more for creating wealth of the middle class. The grandstanding politicians just took credit for it just like they do for so many things that they slant as a good thing. If you believe politicians or even your professor on that, you are a fool.

The economy collapsed in 1929 because of catastrophic socialist policies. It was a massive bubble that could not sustain itself. Roughly speaking it all goes back to when the Fed was created in 1913. After creation, they created more reserve notes (fake money) than was actually out there and the market would not accept it. The house of cards collapsed that was the socialist Fed Reserve money system.

It wasn't too dissimilar from what happened in the 2000's up to today except that after the crash happened, this time the socialists who manage our economy didn't make it even worse by ruining crops, etc, to prop up prices. Instead this time the socialists just bailed out banks to prop up real estate prices. Socialists fight reality instead of work with it.

Socialism is the problem here. Touting the problem (socialism) AS the actual solution is idiotic.

So dumb in a myriad of ways.

You mailed physical evidence. I'm guessing you weren't smart enough to wear gloves or not lick the envelopes.

You MAILED physical evidence. Even if you dropped it in an outgoing box, you still gave the FBI a great starting point.

You tried to extort small pizza businesses. I don't know about these pizza joints, but where I grew up at least half of the pizza joints were owned by the mob or their families. They would take this extortion attempt very well, I bet. You would wind up being a John Doe murder in the news in short order.

From what I gather, Congressmen socialize much less often. And much less gets done.

I'm all for them getting less done! The Constitution was written to limit their power so they wouldn't get much done.


Like the New Deal, that awful piece of socialist bullcrap that was the government overstepping its bounds and creating a protected middle class!

Well, the US system IS designed to make it hard to do things, but it's also hard to undo things. That's why we still have the New Deal in place, despite having politicians that wanted to get rid of it in complete charge of the government 2000-2006.

Also, as the New Deal was accepted, and became popular (opposition to it at the time was at least as strong as it was to the ACA), it was gradually improved. I'm hoping the same thing can be done with the ACA: get a public option in place, further expand medicare & medicaid, etc. Now that it's in place and having a positive effect, it makes it easier to improve it, even if it takes a long time.

I'm surprised you feel this way.

In general, these are all people with somewhat similar goals (making decisions that impact various channels), with somewhat similar backgrounds.

You used to hear stories all the time about how Congressmen would bitch and fight all day long, then go drinking at bars together. It was business. And, frankly, business is easier when you like one another because you can work with them. I get why maybe you don't want that with the JD, but it's people, and people usually want to like the people they deal with day in and day out.

He's actually more well-known for his blogtivism than he is for his sci-fi writing, I think.
