Short, Terse Explanation Of How & Why Conservatives Are Trying To Sabotage ObamaCare (The Affordable Care Act Of 2010) – Chris Hayes Of MSNBC’s ‘All In With Chris Hayes’
Posted on September 25, 2013 by
CHRIS HAYES, “Then once you produce this very complicated Bill that is the only way to sneak through all these Interests, people turn around and say, “Man, that’s complicated! I don’t know if it’s gonna work.” Continue reading
INDIVIDUALITY LOST! The State, Its Committees, Collective Decision Making & Uniformity Did Not Produce A Great Society In George Orwell’s ‘1984’. State Control Of Public Education With Its Committees, Collective Decision Making, Lesson Plans & Uniformity Does Not Produce An Educated Populace In America’s 2013. The Parallel Is Clear But Ignored. The Assembly Line Produces Automatons, Not Progress. Ayn Rand Was So Close (‘Objectivism’ Philosophy), But Yet So Dead Wrong Because, Like Reagan Republicans, Her Premise Was Based On Individual Selfishness More Than Creative Individuality. Where Modern Man Has Gone Wrong & How Modern Inventions Are Both Good For The Privileged & Bad For Everyone Else!

“The division of labor, in fact, contributes to increased efficiency in production, proved most masterfully by Henry Ford and his advances in assembly line manufacturing.
Prior to Ford’s advancement of the assembly line for automobile production, cars were primarily produced by craftsmen, as was the case with most things. Each car was individually produced by a team of craftsmen, and each of these craftsmen had to be highly skilled and very knowledgeable about the mechanics of cars in order to build them.
With the assembly line a small team of people designed the car and assembly process, and a larger team of unskilled workers built the cars. What was so remarkable about Ford’s process was that any man off the street, even if he had never seen a car before, could work on the assembly line and with a few instructions he could be a part of the team building cars.
A worker could work on the wheel assembly section without having ever seen a car motor in his life.
With the division of labor the individual needs only to know how to do his specific task and nothing more. The assembly-line worker requires no large-scale knowledge, no vision, no concept of the whole. As long as the worker can turn the screw when the piece is in front of him that’s all he needs to know and do. In fact, this allows each worker to focus on perfecting a specific set of skills and can actually lead to increased quality.
This is the process of the socialization of labor.
Capitalism naturally creates a tendency for increased economic efficiency. This increased efficiency comes through the continuing division of labor, specialization and economies of scale.
I may be a worker on an assembly-line doing my part to build a car, yet I may have no idea what is going in the next room where the next part in the process is being done.” Continue reading
BILL MAHER On His Comedy Show Makes A Lot Of Sense About Americans Sitting Around A Table And Discussing Which Muslim Country We Should Bomb Next. And You Don’t Need To Hear Howard Stern Say That; Just Listen To The Talking Heads On Sunday Morning TV – ‘Face The Nation’, ‘Meet The Press’ Or ‘This Week With George Stephanopoulos’
Posted on September 18, 2013 by
Bill Maher, “Who acts like this? People in other countries don’t talk like this, probably because if they did, we’d bomb them! We’re the only nation, who threatens to drop bombs on you while telling you, “We don’t want to get involved! We’re just bombing – please, don’t get up! No boots on the ground! A little light bombing, we’ll be out of your hair in a week!” Continue reading
Open-Ended Questions – Never Pose One To A Politician – Or Anybody Else You Cannot Trust Implicitly! Open-Ended Questions Are Like A Fishing Net With Extra Large Holes – All The Little Critters Can Escape. “How Do You Feel?” Is The Most Famous “Small Talk” Intro & The Most Infamous Open-Ender. When You Ask It, You Don’t Really Want The Truth! If You Ask Closed-Ended Questions, It’s Like An Animal Trap Too Deep To Jump Out Of. Even If Your Quarry Takes The 5th, Guilt Is Written All Over Them. And If They Ignore The Closed-Ended Question, Even Those In The Cheap Seats Can Spell “Evasion”.
Posted on September 15, 2013 by
The ability to ask open-ended questions is very important in many vocations, including education, counseling, mediation, sales, investigative work and journalism.
An open-ended question is designed to encourage a full, meaningful answer using the subject’s own knowledge and/or feelings. It is the opposite of a closed-ended question, which encourages a short or single-word answer. Open-ended questions also tend to be more objective and less leading than closed-ended questions (see next page).
Open-ended questions typically begin with words such as “Why” and “How”, or phrases such as “Tell me about…”. Often they are not technically a question, but a statement, which implicitly asks for a response. – TABACCO: That’s the definitions and ‘conventional wisdom’; but how VALID is the ‘conventional wisdom’? Mainly, it depends on whom you’re questioning. If it’s Politicians and Salesmen, don’t believe the hype – all bets are off! I tell you how to handle Politicos and Hostile Witnesses! You don’t do it with OPEN-ENDED QUESTIONS! Continue reading
“AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM”: What Does It Mean? Is It True? Should Americans Be Proud Of It? Russian President, Vladimir V. Putin, Says, “It is dangerous for any country, including America, to see itself as exceptional, whatever its motivation.” Is Putin Wrong? We Won’t Even Discuss It Because Of MSM Sophist Trickery No. 1. Elitism Vis-à-vis The Nazi ‘Master Race’ Hypothesis, We Export Our Worst Institutions (Fast Food, Prison Industrial Complex, Extraordinary Rendition, Political Assassination, Exploitation, Labor Abuses, Gestapo Policing, Drone Genocide, Pit Religious Sect Against Religious Sect/Race Against Race, Support Israel To Destabilize OPEC Middle East, Disaster Capitalism = Wars For Profit) To Control World Economy And Maintain Our Own Financial Superiority. Perhaps “American Exceptionalism” Stems From Fact We Have Done It More Effectively & Gotten Away With It Longer Than Alexander, Caesar, Napoleon, Stalin & Hitler! The One Aspect Of American Exceptionalism Of Which I Am Certain Is American Arrogance!

President of Russia, Vladimir V. Putin, “No one wants the United Nations to suffer the fate of the League of Nations, which collapsed because it lacked real leverage. This is possible if influential countries bypass the United Nations and take military action without Security Council authorization.” – Tabacco: The Mainstream Media wants you to consider the Messenger and IGNORE the Message. That is Sophists’ Trickery No. 1. That Tact excuses you from considering the Charge, which should be answered honestly and directly regardless of whether offered by Saint or Sinner. You must refute the Message, not the Messenger! Is the Message correct only because Martin Luther King said it and incorrect because the messenger was Adolf Hitler? Does that make Logical Sense to you? Continue reading
GOP OBSTRUCTIONISM: “I Don’t Give A Damn How America Voted; We’re Running The Damn Country!” 40 Separate House Bills Voted To Strike ObamaCare – Risking Government Credibility & Bankruptcy – Syria 2013 Vs. Iraq 2003 – When One Party Deliberately And With Premeditation Constipates The Government To Saddle The Other Party In Power With Ineffectuality For The Sole Selfish Purpose Of Regaining Power, It’s Time To Remove The Republican Party From Leadership In The Presidency, The Senate & The House Of Representatives To Save America. And That’s Not All Of GOP’s Obstructionism! GOP King Solomon’s Mother’s Strategy Of “Cut The Baby In Half If I Can’t Have It All” Was Bad Then And Is Worse Now!
Posted on September 9, 2013 by
WASHINGTON — In one of their final votes before heading home for a five-week summer recess, House Republicans voted on Friday to repeal ObamaCare. It was their 40th such vote, and like their 39 previous attempts, it will not go any further with the Democratic-controlled Senate or the Democratic president.
The ‘KEEP THE IRS OFF YOUR HEALTH CARE ACT OF 2013’, sponsored by Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), would block the Internal Revenue Service from enforcing or implementing any portion of President Barack Obama’s signature health care reform law. Continue reading
