The inactivity of this forum.
Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:06 pm by Burkman
It's depressing to see how inactive it has been recently. I mean, everybody is pretty much primarily posting in the never ending thread now and there's not enough people here to make this place really booming. We need to find some way to bring more people here before this place just fades into nothingness...

I know for a fact that a lot of boards out there are thriving because of how many people are there. We just need to get back into the game and pull people here. However, where we obtain these people might matter, because we don't to end up pulling in douches like those at Selkath.

I understand that people are busy these days, but it doesn't seem like they're rarely at their computer anymore. I know most of you are still dicking around with your computer. I don't know how we …

@Ban:

Found this article on Forbes. Read it and tell me what you think.

Quote :
Within a free economy, societal equality means everyone starts the same. Within socialism, societal equality means everyone finishes the same. Economics students at one well-known university learned the hard way why socialism doesn’t work.

The course was on comparative economic policies. The instructor asserted that finishing the same under the socialistic model would remove incentives to excel and the risk of failure and would ultimately lower the overall quality of life in a society. Some students asserted that without incentives to excel or the risk of failure, people would give their best effort and altruistically excel to advance the greater good. So, the professor proposed an experiment: on individual exams in the course, all students would receive a score equal to the average score of all students. Students would finish the same. The students agreed.

On the first exam, the average score was a B and all students received a B. On the second exam, the average score was a C and all students received a C. After successive exams in the course, the average score dropped to an F. At the end of the course, all students received a cumulative grade of F.

Why did this happen? The instructor learned from the lower performing students that they saw no reason to study at all. The top performing students related that their hard work was for naught, so they studied less.

And, then what happened? The students complained to the university’s administration that they each received an F and not a higher grade. After confirming that the students agreed to the grading methodology and that the students chose to apply themselves less, the university’s administration left their grades unchanged.

Government must not remove the ability of the individual to excel or fail. Similarly, government must not remove the ability of companies to excel or fail. A company that is “too big to fail” presents threats to an economy not dissimilar in magnitude than the threats posed at the individual level. In spite of all of the gnashing of teeth, nothing meaningful has been done about the corporate socialism that continues to exist in the United States. Dodd-Frank is an abysmal failure.

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once said that socialism is great until you run out of other people’s money. We find that Lady Thatcher’s wisdom has greater applicability than she first thought.

Pretty much what I said- Socialism's great once you have the economic backbone needed to support it...

First of all, absolute socialism doesn't work. Second of all, "Socialized Healthcare" is NOT Socialized at all in the U.S. It's actually a system that creates a monopoly and enforces the bad practices that are everything wrong with U.S. Healthcare policy. They are not trying to mimic a somewhat good system like Canada's (which still had huge flaws) they are more like Cave Johnson. They are throwing economics at the wall to see what sticks.

In fact I would love for everyone to have access to medical services 24/7... but IT'S NOT PRACTICAL WITH OUR CURRENT ECONOMY. On top of which I don't feel like paying for someone's medical expenses who doesn't work... and doesn't look for work. There are A LOT of lazy people over here...

And oh look... someone who thinks they know how I think... so European...

I love you. (Even though Meatlocker's toying with you was hilarious.)

Anyways, at it's most basic the new healthcare is a way of government control that literally breaks several economic laws while making the entire machine more complex and adding unnecessary parts for which we will have to pay. There is nothing free or social about it. It's just garbage.

@Branch: Which city you coming to? Is it actually in the D/FW or just closer to here?

Obama wants us to live in an European style welfare state. He wants us all sucking from the goverment's teat. That nanny statist is sure not taking my gun and my kids will read the Bible in school EVERYDAY! He wants us to pay for the homos' weddings. He wants to keep gas prices so high that we'll have to fuel our car with nuts and corn. You know who will be owning them nut companies? The GRAND PISTACHIO BARRACK OBAMA!

Let's send him back to Kenya in this election!

However, the herd sympathises with Branch and will allow him to occupy the closet under the stairs on the condition that he scrapes away some of the mold that has taken root there.

In other news, I lub the NHS; can't get enough of that shit.
