Can you guys help me figure out which political party I belong in? I've tried all the online quizzes and they all tell me something a little different. If I'm an republican, democrat, left wing, right wing or liberal, I have no idea.

I recall him doing something similar with his FAIR act, a piece of legislation that was supposed to fight off the ability federal government has to take property away from those who have only been suspected of committing a crime. Yet he's done little in his end to ward off the issue the Keystone Pipeline XL regarding the federal government's use of eminent domain to confiscate property for the project (the latest rendition of the bill for voting had a section regarding the defense of private property, but it only held a single line that simply stated no methods could be used that were against the constitution, which would effectively do little to nothing).

Just goes to show you shouldn't throw your chips to a politician because his policies are attractive; bills and legislation speak the truth in the end.

Well, it's not like anyone's gonna grease his palm for defending public siezure of assets. There's literally no point in being a politician in the US if you aren't corrupt.

yeah that is pretty weird. Looks like he is pandering to other republican voters. This is just the beginning though, if he gets more and more popular he wills start going back on a lot of issues and changing his mind to pander.

If you actually hope to change people's minds, maybe you should hold back the snark a little? You aren't arguing with neo-Nazis or Scientologists or whatever, there is a point in trying.

Obamacare is not a program in it's own right, it's a set of regulations for health insurance companies.

Lawmakers are required to acquire insurance through health care exchanges via the ACA. Not quite sure why it would be such a controversy. Is there some articles stating that he's going through the process in a non-mandatory measure?

Well he wasn't worth the trade, that's my personal opinion. I can't say he deserves death because I'd never say that about a U.S soldier. Looks like he went through enough shit by being captive for 5 years.

Few hundred? Literally almost the entire Northern Vietnamese were fighting us in a guerilla war. You can't really beat an enemy like that when public opinion is against The war in the first place. We killed dozens of NVA and guerilla fighter for every soldier we lost, but they were fighting a war of attrition. We won Damn near every battle, but were forced to pull out.

Amerikike sucks and lost big time against some fucking gooks who didnt know how to make anything else than cooking rice.

User avatar #81601 to #81597 - marinepenguin (5 hours ago) [-]
Yes. We lost in Vietnam, and we've lost in the Middle East. No patriotic idiot could deny that.

But saying that it was due to military blunder or the militaries inability to get the job done is just stupid. Vietnam was lost not on the battlefield, but at home. The military was winning, but public opinion at home forced politicians to also turn against the war. In the middle east (which wasn't a purely US involved conflict btw), we've won the vast majority of all Battles as well, but our governments poor planning and preparation for a war of occupation has led to the shithole that is the middle east today. It's not our military that has been incapable, it's been our government.

All right /politics/ listen up.
For my liberal English class, I need to write a long paper on business ethics. It has to be about a specific problem. I have to cite multiple peer reviewed articles on the topic.

I can't think of what to write about and I'm running out of time.
User avatar #81557 to #81507 - akkere ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
What sort of paper is it? Exposition, or rhetoric?
I guess for both length and quality of content you could try to bring out the general issue of valuing labor and focus it on sweatshops and outsourced labor of second/third world countries. Comparison checking of the cost to produce an item + wages vs. the actual sale of item for very products and such, as well as comparing it to the industrial revolution of early US history that would later transform our economy from second-world/pseudo-first-world to primarily first world in nature.

I was going to do it on trade liberalization (more free market) in China since the 70s but she said that was too broad a topic.

China had been a communist shithole for a long time. Its piss poor management lead to the deaths of over 50 million people from starvation. In the early 70s, it started privatizing its agriculture and that lead to a surge in food production. Even though the well being of everyone has dramatically increased, their leftwing parties criticize the policies for increasing inequality.

Laws prohibiting cloths that cover your face, aka laws against niqab and burkas.
Look up S.A.S. v. France, very important verdict as far as European law goes.

Also there is another verdict from ECHR where Britain was convicted for allowing British Airways to forbid one of its employees from wearing a veil during work. It's generally the verdict people take about when they discuss wether or not businesses should be allowed to dictate what their employees wear.

It seems hypocritical to claim anti discrimination laws are bad but also slander unions as racist, when logically this means discriminating by race is fine in a free market.

There's a fine difference between calling places racist and forcing them not to be racist. I support private unions as a means to voluntarily negotiate. And just like i oppose anti-discrimination laws for private companies i oppose them for private unions.

I'd be interested in how they're going to do this. The most logical way would be to genetically modify the plant so that Green Fluorescent Protein is encoded in it's genome. But that would make it shine all day instead of just in the dark.
