Bill's Politipalooza

Yesterday at 10:30 AM · 

There are very legitimate arguments against Medicare for All. I am against M4A and am very happy to explain why. However, new government expenses and taxes aren't really among the reasons. It's super hard to see a cancer patient holding a 6-figure bill and then complain about my taxes going up. It's super hard to see the $trillions spent on needless war and then complain about new government spending on its citizens. Lastly, when neither party gives a damn about debt and deficit, I simply cannot talk about the expense of M4A with a straight face. Fiscal sustainability is problematic with M4A, but it is a weak argument for most Americans given the current reality. I believe there are solutions far better than M4A, but let's debate them and stop thinking its a mic-drop moment when you ask to see the price tag. It's not!

Sure it is. I can hand you a million dollar bill for a dying kid every ten seconds. If you care about these people, you'll pay it, right?

Every person starts with a responsibility to themselves, their immediate family and friends, then their neighborhood, community, politic, and species in that order.

If you place the charity of random strangers above your own immediate circle, you are generous, but also a drain on on your own resources, and you will run out of them in short order.

Not every problem in the world is your problem or my problem. That is a harsh reality.

Is it reasonable to support your immediate circles? Yes, because you will gain similar benefit in response. Is it reasonable to offer some limited support further out, as available? Absolutely. Should you starve your own family to do so? Well, you can, but I won't.

Literally anyone can write a check to the Dept of Health and Human Services, or any other gov't agency, and it will be cashed. Demands for legislative force mean those people want SOMEONE ELSE to be made to donate, not themselves. You can find plenty of news stories about it, too. "I didn't think _my_ taxes would go up!" They voted for SOMEONE ELSE to get screwed out of resources.

If you go to the bank and say, "I need a loan for a new roof," you'll probably get it. The infrastructure helps your family and its economics. If you say, "I need to borrow $10,000 to give to some kid with cancer in Kansas," they're going to refuse, and they should. Taxes, especially deficits, should be going for critical societal needs such as infrastructure and defense. Charity is a luxury a wealthy nation can afford to a certain degree. The nation that mandates it as a non-discretionary entitlement, while considering infrastructure and defense to be discretionary, is on the slope to destruction.

Then there's the reality that the same government that spends $500 on hammers, denies painkillers to cancer patients, and negligently exposed at least 6000 veterans to HIV shouldn't be making ANY health care decisions.

Does anyone think the above is not reasonable?

And yet, if someone were to explain that to the Cockzucker, using a ball bat until his cranial intestines leaked onto the sidewalk, rather than the public benefactor they actually would be, they'd be considered a criminal.

And thus, western civilization is doomed by "tolerant" "liberals" who can tolerate anything except dissent or humor.

"Conservatives are still outraged over a same-sex kiss."

No, not really, liberal boy. Few of them ever were.

Either the character, having the memories of all previous hosts, is completely bisexual and relaxed about it. Or there's some hormonal/chemical factor in the host that makes them monosexual. Either way it should have been a nonissue as of the 3rd episode. It was you liberals who milked it for ad dollars.

DS9 did not start becoming anything even remotely approximating Good until the staff writers looked at the path Joe Straczynski was blazing, and said: "Hey -- Star Trek has never tried Actual Continuity before; let's give it a shot."  Until then, all the show was known for was having a species whose defining features were "short; big ears; crooked teeth; odd headgear; obsessed with money", in accordance with The Protocols Of The Elders Of Science Fiction...

You beat us about the head with every "marginalized" group, in a universe where allegedly these things don't matter.

This is yet another reason why "liberals" should refrain from science fiction.  They really can't envision a universe outside their narrow little shell of hatred and prejudice.

You may have noticed I've not been on Fecesbook for a while.  Let me explain...no, let me SHOW you why:

Note that the "spam" is still "pending review" nine months later.  This is why I have multiple backup accounts. Yes, that's against their rules.  They can fuck themselves with their rules. This has happened over 100 times, and I've lost count.

Since I can't even post news links about certain subjects:

They've even blocked me from asking for review:</p><p><img src=

And sometimes I don't even get told what I'm being banned for:

And in messages, quoting Bill Clinton verbatim is "Harmful content."

 /></p><p>So they win.  I can't appeal to their rules, which change constantly anyway, and which they are manipulating against me.  Don't waste time suggesting a lawyer--the Cockzucker only responds to court orders from CA courts, which I can't afford. Even though someone or a group of someone's is obsessive enough about me to sift back through comments I made literally three years ago to ban me. <a href=https://www.michaelzwilliamson.com/blog/index.php?itemid=369 

When I had a Twitter account, similar things happened there.  I may have a screenshot back in the archive, but what's the point?

You may recall multiple Wikipoo editors all "Spontaneously" and simultaneously decided to speedy delete my page as "not notable," despite 2 genre and 9 national bestsellers, and several awards and noms, plus GoH appearances. They also went after Tom Kratman, Brad Torgersen, Sarah Hoyt, were trying to pull down bits of John Ringo's background, probably with the intent of claiming a multiple NYT bestseller is not notable, and even in discussion claimed that "Baen is basically a vanity publisher."

It would be ridiculous to believe there's any sort of conspiracy going on here.  Not at all. But the pile of coincidences makes presence on several platforms very inconvenient.

There's an irony that the Cockzucker is quoted here https://www.wired.com/story/facebook-mark-zuckerberg-lost-notebook/ as saying: ΓÇ£Would you want every joke that you made to someone being printed and taken out of context later?ΓÇ¥ and ΓÇ£Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.ΓÇ¥

Well done, Cockzucker!  You said the right things.  You never intended to abide by them, but you did say them.

There's no point wasting time on anything else that will be used to harass me further.</p><p>However, if you follow me over to <a href=www.mewe.com you'll get first updates and dibs on my projects, and as a bonus, I can post all the unmutual humor I never even bothered to risk on Fecesbook, knowing the Butthurt Little Bitch Brigade would wet their panties.
