Yeah these guys should've gassed that painting up a bit and let that shit explode. --- S. Trainer... it would be more meta if a white guy that looked like barack obama lit that exact painting on fire and held it up and then posted it on this website.

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. The right to bear arms is so plainly stated, so unambiguous, that liberals have a hard time challenging it directly. Instead, they have been employing every imaginable ruse and ploy to restrict it and defeat it. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. We need a President who will enforce current laws, not create new ones that only serve to burden lawful gun owners. President Obama has not. I will. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. We need a President who will stand up for the rights of those who seek to protect their homes and their families. President Obama has not. I will. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee. Motherfucker."
ah so this whole zizek cartoon lecture is about how an individual can't change the world by herself so even though charity has been co-opted by capitalism and doesn't really help or change anything, it's not really so bad and so on and so on...

"Markets look after their private needs and to pursue profit. It's their work that I'm supporting. It's really a great invention and I wouldn't under-estimate the values and principles of a free and open society. It's their work that I'm supporting. So it's not me doing it because I can afford to do it, and I believe in it. It's their work that I'm supporting. Markets are constantly in a state of uncertainty and flux and money is made by discounting the obvious and betting on the unexpected. It's their work that I'm supporting. Markets are designed to allow individuals to look after social needs. But I can empower them. I can support them, and I can help them. It's their work that I'm supporting. I'm not doing my philanthropic work, out of any kind of guilt, or any need to create good public relations. Markets are constantly in a state of uncertainty and flux. It’s their work that I’m supporting. I chose America as my home because I value freedom in pursuing their interests. We must take the leadership in protecting the common interests, we must take the leadership in protecting our national interests of humanity. It's their work that I'm supporting. When I had made more money than I needed for myself and my family, I set up a foundation. It's their work that I'm supporting. I support people acting in different scenarios. The financial markets don't look after social needs. But I can empower them. I can support people in the country who care about an open society. It's their work that I'm supporting."

So this article is sort of cathartic for me, but I hate to be reductive? And certainly plenty of the "old" have financial troubles as well. The system is set up to fuck us all, except the very richest. But I do think this article makes a few good points as to what's been plainly going on politically.
Maybe I'm full of shit, but 4 part time jobs and mountains of debt and it may be my fault for being "Entitled" or Impatient, but I still fear for my future.
Seems like he was a pretty narrow-minded dude. But to think that the culture war kills? I guess I always hoped the bullshit slung back and forth was just talk, but it seems even that talk can be murderous.
"It is not your job, nor is it your responsibility, or even your right to let women know when you think they are pretty. There is a time and a place for that sort of compliment. If you ever have any doubt at all, err on the side of keeping your mouth shut. "
