You guys should seriously read this. Steel man their arguments and argue against those views. Basically what this ideology boils down to, is that because the writer of the song was a slave owner and racist, that the song (or PB&J sandwich, to go along with the analogy) is tainted. I wouldn't necessarily disagree with this, if the song was written in the last 50 years, but it wasn't. It's important that these people understand that slavery wasn't considered immoral at the time and there was actually strong arguments that slavery was more moral for slaves than freedom.
The funny thing is, the Democrats are bringing this mindset back w/o the word slavery. We must remember that slaves still had some human rights and where expected to be cared for by their owners; to include healthcare, food and shelter. The idea was, that these slaves would have a better life under slavery where these things where provided to them, versus the alternative that they cared completely for themselves.
I do not defend or condone this view, but it is important to realize the historical context of the songwriter's viewpoints and realize that they where considered fairly moral at the time.
If BLM is to hold this principle, then It must be applied universally. All the Greek philosophers we praise and love also had slaves. Muhammad was a child rapist. Etc. Etc.
If you apply this principle to the writer of the National Anthem, then they must also apply it to Muslim prophet, Muhammad. They have no logical basis of sparing modern judgement to certain individuals of their choosing. If Shaun King takes this stance, then it must be applied universally. With the outcome that he fully condemn the work of any person who can be considered immoral by today's standards.

Basically make-up channels and and videos with unicorns farting will get money, channels that show news and/or controversial content won't get money. This is censorship in the form of incentives. It strikes me as odd, considering social commentary channels have been popping up left and right, and now youtube (owned by google) sees it fit to restrict these channels. It strikes me as very odd that MSM seems to be the biggest beneficiary of a policy like this. Content creators will stray away from social commentary and leave it to network television. Just the way they want it. Even Phil hinted at this, without going full on conspiracy theorist. Also, I haven't watched him in a long time, but he actually is really good. Watched his last few videos, and he reminds me a lot of someone like David Rubin.
I need to read the book 1984. From what I hear, this is right out of the playbook.

This guy is becoming almost a role model for me. Even the way he is able to step back and say 'mom's are going to do what they do, we understand that' as to not attack the mothers themselves, but the DNC for lambasting them inappropriately, just really comes off as genuine. That kind of language sounds to me like someone who want's to fix a problem, not push a hard edged ideology or start a conflict.

From what I understand no one knows what is in the TPP right now. Its contents will be released to the public for 90 days, as dictated by law, before the president can approve it.
Gary Johnson is currently making his decision on the basis that he thinks the overall outcome will be more free trade, thus it's good. I think we should save judgement for when the TPP is actually released. Some are saying that the TPP will introduce stronger IP and people being subject to some foreign laws. If this is the case, then I think it's safe to say that no actual libertarian would agree with the TPP.
Let's wait and see what it actually entails.

I wanted to know some of your opinions in this very topic.... First I want to say that seeing her fall like that was kind of funny...
But, what's your take on fat people going to the gym? Like I think the whole fat accepts culture is pretty disgusting, but at the end of the day idgaf because it doesn't affect me. But, when I see a overweight person in the gym I respect them for finally waking up and taking control of their life. Some of these people had fat parents and have been force fed their entire lives.
I expected people to laugh at this video on the comments, but instead it's the same old.
Pretty much I'm trying to figure out why some of you hate fat people so much? Like I hate having to next to one on a plane, or see them raising fat kids, but I still respect a fat person who tries to lose weight.
Basically what I'm getting at is, like most externalized hate, I feel like alot of you have some deep fear of being fat, so you externalize that fear. Where as someone like me dislikes some things that fat people do but idgaf if everyone in the world gets fat and everyone in the media gets fat and all that because I still will go to the gym and eat healthy because that's what I want to do.

Take out costly. You guys are falling for liberal propoganda. The fact is that pRivage prisons operate at 70 cents on the dollar compared to public prisons. Whether or not this is ethical us up for debate, but don't sit there and make this strawman of what a private pris on is.
