Strangely enough, Dave Wilson's opponent, Bruce Austin, was actually black himself and therefore also had the factor of those who voted based on race alone.
Only problem I'd really have with it is the old deceptive name dropping trick, in which part of his pamphlet involved the reference of being cousins with and endorsed by a Ron Wilson, which happens to be the name of a former legislator in that area, when in actuality it was a different Ron Wilson entirely.
Otherwise, it was a pretty funny trick, and an interesting statement in itself.
#82112 to #82102 - cabbagemayhem (04/04/2015) [-]
Yes, this is hilarious. They deserved it for voting for someone based on their skin color.
User avatar #82125 to #82112 - byposted (04/05/2015) [-]
The incumbent, as akkere related, was also Black. Dave Wilson's insincere relation to "Ron Wilson" seems to have been the deciding factor, in his victory.

Of course, the Ron Wilson, which the community knew, was, too, Black, and the implication is that it would not have voted, in such competitory numbers, for a White man - with financially conservative inclinations, no less.

But what is the fault in thinking that in order for a politician to represent you, they must be of your race?

Had Blacks not remained complacent, while the Jewish NAACP vetoed their voice, during the latter portion of the 20th century, and, rather, clung to the popular Nation of Islam, or any other adhesive, racial front, which actually boasted of a higher composition representing their race, where, today, would they be?

Had Blacks identified the correct issues, and pursued their ends, would they be uplifted, or downtrodden, relative to the shackled past? Today, as it stands, they have been abandoned* by their former Jewish, Egalitarian "champions," whose descendants have moved on to advocate for greener social justice issues, such as those pertaining to homosexual relations which, ironically, the bulk of Blacks stand opposed to.

*The term "abandoned" may incorrectly signify that these Jews promised Blacks fulfillment. They promised "equality," and left them as equal as my lanky, left arm, to my fapping right.
User avatar #82110 to #82102 - lulzforalpsplane (04/04/2015) [-]
So this genius basically implied that he was black (legally) and won the election because so many morons today vote for people just because they are Black. I see nothing wrong with this, scratch that. Who the fuck votes for someone because they are black? Execute scum like that.

What is wrong with holding race as a prerequisite, for consideration, in voting?

Are you going to adopt leftist language, and, presently, allege that Blacks "discriminate," as electors?

That's near branding the Muslim world as "misogynist," or "sexist," to legitimize one's loathing of Orientals (whose tickets to Europe, remember, could have been voided by the offspring of native women, too "empowered" for our own benefit).

Appealing to Feminism and Egalitarianism is the new ingenious strategy of the Kosher Right! It arises, as I've been writing, from identifying the wrong adversaries: immigrants and Islam, over Egalitarians and Feminists.

I think one would be deluded to compare people whose political views lean right who wanted to view the death pictures of a terrorist who targeted their country in the past for affirmation to radical extremists who would be fully willing to murder innocent people if said images were released.

What's the point of killing him if not to make an example of him? That's another stupid picture. The surest way to tell a conspiracy is that all of the evidence regarding an issue is held solely by an elite few. Pics and timestamp or it didn't happen. Don't be a noob.
User avatar #82095 to #82092 - lulzforalpsplane (04/04/2015) [-]
Yeah because properly burying a disgusting, terrorist and then not even showing death photos is the "proper" thing to do. Fucking ridiculous, America spat on the ones that died on 911 by doing that. It should have shown pictures, video and burned the bastard with bacon and anyone who got mad in America should have been labeled an extremist Islamist. I'm always anti-conspiracy theorist but how am I even supposed to believe the U.S government? I do it only out of trust, not evidence.
User avatar #82107 to #82095 - redandgreen (04/04/2015) [-]
The point was to remove terrorists from the world not make more of them. Degrading him in the way you suggest would just generate more hate and make the world think less of America.
I think they did the right thing in treating the body respectfully as pointlessly outraging moderate muslims would just mean more problems.
User avatar #82116 to #82107 - lulzforalpsplane (04/05/2015) [-]
TOP FUCKING KEK m8. You are no moderate muslim if you get outraged at the defecation of a disgusting terrorists corpse. Like I said, you deserve to be labelled an extremist. And as if I care if it creates more terrorists, terrorists will be created in mass numbers in the Middle East anyways because of Western presence and the radical extremist, authoritarian culture of Islam. If the defecation of a horrible man's corpse turns you into a terrorist, then you are bound to be one later on anyways, how is that so hard to fucking grasp?

And I'd like to add that the point wasn't just to remove terrorists, for most in America it was purely on revenge, and revenge was not given. No proof has been given which is outrageous and a the peaceful wittle burial is just a slap in the face. Like this fuck deserves a nice burial, the only possible argument towards this would be principle (if you do this to one guy, who else can you do this too, where is the line drawn?) .

America isn't the enemy of Islam, do you understand that? It's a small section of crazy people who hate and attack the West and those people do not represent Islam.

What America shouldn't do is pour oil on the fire by appearing to be the enemy of Islam, which is exactly what you're suggesting.

....what....what could possibly be reasonable about her? She's a fucking batshit crazy SJW feminist.
User avatar #82093 to #82087 - akkere ONLINE (04/04/2015) [-]
Problem is, she's not working to spread any "common good" in feminism but merely to twist the issue (if there even was one to begin with) to achieve profits; this is pretty heavily evident between the kickstarter she made to "upgrade" her show, but merely continued doing the same exact thing and pocketed the extra money, and the patreon abuses she's made.
Most of the "reasonable" things she says is pure misconception like the ol' 77% female shtick, so even when she's trying to be rational she's wrong, and anyway her main thing is pushing the idiot banter on video games in the first place.
She's merely putting on a guise of being an activist to achieve self-profit; none of her proceeds goes to funding something like employing women in the work force of game design, and whenever a charity or organization does work to push for that independent of her, she throws a hissy fiss with her other SJW partners.

Personally I despise people who make a living out of having opinions about stuff. I'm not talking about politicians here, because at least they manage sometimes to turn their words into action. Bloggers, like her, just speak about how they feel about stuff, which is something a 10-year old would be able to do. As long as she hasn't done anything noteworthy in her life aside from "commenting, debating, criticizing and speaking" on stuff, I won't waste my time listening to her either.

I don't despise those people because of that. Maybe a little with the exception of music judges a little in shows like The Idols, etc. A lot of people simply comment for a living. Sports, politics, etc. It's frequent to see people doing it, which is probably why I don't care all that much.

Postmodern society sexualizes children, for the public eye, though abhors those who direct their lusting gaze "to the bedroom," so to speak.  See webm: Lookie, lookie, but no touchie, touchie!

 Never mind that.

This is a social issue, and should be dealt with socially. The market is a tool that operates neutral to social issues, and government (especially central government that spans vast regions) shouldn't get involved in each and every community's social values.

Have they told the police about these threatening phone calls? Has anyone actually heard these calls?

I've looked them up on Yelp, and the good reviews far out way the bad. Prior to them being on the news, there were 2 reviews. And well the bad are inspired by this story and harsh, I don't see death threats.

I also have my doubts that a pizza shop in a Mid-Western town of 5,000 people would be asked to cater a gay wedding, or any wedding at all.

They've now raised over $200,000 on .

Sounds like a scam to me.

This seems to be the coach that made the threat. Funny, didn't realize high schools actually had golf.

However, the does raise a good deal of suspicion, namely in how sudden it pops up after the "controversy". It certainly seems like they're going to come out of this with more money than they would've made in a year of working the shop.

I hope you're not simply typing in "Balkan Suppression of Communism" when you do a search.
Instead, try checking the history of the communism and it's spread to Eastern Europe (which will inevitably lead to the Balkan nations like Bulgaria) and taking note of the numerous uprisings that occurred (I know for a fact Bulgaria had a few that got slapped out; start there and branch out). Double track it with a search on the history of individual regions within the balks (not just the areas as a whole) and take notes of how the leaderships in your time period had treated political opposition in general; make inferences from there, even if the article has nothing mentioned on communist opponents at all.

User avatar #82055 to #82040 - akkere ONLINE (04/03/2015) [-]
Why? Bitcoin has absolutely no backing behind it, and no legislative body either to pretend to support it. That's why it's value is so dodgy and has dropped to unbelievable points.
Gold and other treasured substances can retain true value, but it doesn't make a heavy degree of thinking to realize there's no purpose behind Bitcoin's value at all. It's even constantly printed through virtual means.
User avatar #82060 to #82055 - kanadetenshi (04/03/2015) [-]
I disagree, legaslative bodies are centralized systems hence fall under the Economic Calculation Problem. The power of Bitcoin is that it avoids this problem.

The claim that Bitcoin cannot have value like treasured substance because it is too technology-dependent is also fallacious. Credit cards are technology-dependent, yet are now more widely used for financial transactions than paper currency. Half of the financial transactions in the African country of Kenya are by means of the cell-phone-based M-Pesa.
User avatar #82067 to #82060 - akkere ONLINE (04/03/2015) [-]
Bitcoin doesn't have value not because it's technology based, but because there's absolutely no cause for its value in accordance to its minting.
You can load up a dozen bit mining programs on a dozen computers, and just keep mining away at bitcoin wealth. Hell, that's what most computer viruses are these days; hidden bit miners that are put on unsuspecting individuals computers where their processing speed is hijacked to mint the coin and forward to the miner's virtual wallet. A proper judiciary would see this, deem the produced currency counterfeit, and confiscate it to be destroyed, but bitcoin doesn't have any sort of regulatory body to combat counterfeit because it's inception is entirely based on it.

And let's not forget the lack of transparency. The entire system was developed by a single individual, who could very well turn around and exploit his system to mine at a quicker rate or even just place coins in his wallet. Again, nothing to look at the currency and assess counterfeit from noncounterfeit.

At least credit cards are merely mutual agreements of exchanging debt with products and other currencies or collaterals, bitcoin isn't backed by any good, any capital, or any sense of economic value other than sheer speculation, and that's why the value drops and rises sharply in the exact opposite way a reliable currency would.

Bitcoin’s value as money needs to be understood like gold, which comes not from legal force, but from its specific attributes. Bitcoin’s attributes make it an amazing form of money and it was engineered for just that purpose. The fact that it provides a service is enough value.

The primary issue you seem to have lies in the possibility of hacking and exploitating counterfeit bitcoins. Something which has been explained many times: www.quora.com/Wont-it-be-easy-for-hackers-to-create-counterfeit-Bitcoins

For one it can't be printed since there is a cap set on total Bitcoins, limiting how much the currency can devalue through inflation.

Bitcoin has no special attributes. None. It's not a tangible mineral like Gold, Oil, or a valued mineral, it's not even a virtual guarantee of an exchange for a mineral like actual currency was initially supposed to be. It's value is inflated based on two things; people's obsession over a currency that is free from government control, and an artificial scarcity that is based on mathematical computing and achieving "points". It's essentially like having your computer farm for video game currency that is then used in real life.

Where the latter becomes a problem is the fact that "hackers" aren't acquiring bitcoins illegitimately through breaching the system of which bitcoins are acquired, but rather from taking bitminers and repurposing them as viruses to be used on other people's computer systems, thereby exploiting them. And there's no form of judiciary that can act against this, such as trace the wallet the bitmining viruses stem from and confiscate the acquired funds. Because so much of bitmining is done by people who manage to either use spread bitmining viruses or slip bit miners into corporate computers, a good portion of bitcoins out in the system aren't technically the "owner's" to trade with because it wasn't minted through their own computing systems.

My primary issue isn't in hackers exploiting the system through external means, my primary issue is the creator himself, "Satoshi Nakamoto", exploiting the system through internal means to acquire his own BitCoin riches, as well as raise the cap all on his own while having his own support mounted to give him the thumbs up for it.

Everything about Bitcoin is artificial - there's nothing even remotely tangible behind it. No collateral backing a debt, no substance of value backing the numbers, nothing. Simply, "computing" is what produces a bitcoin, and speculation is what gives it its value. Which is probably why the price spikes and drops so sporadically.
