I agree, but how do you explain something as simple as that without seeming rude or condescending? Some people are just really stupid.

you beat me to it lol
i work at a grocery store and deal with people a lot, and people complain about dealing with stupid people demanding stupid things. I hardly never have this problem because i try to covey what im trying to say in a nicer manner rather than being a dick about it, occasionally ill get someone thats really white trash but other than that if you're nice, they're likely to be nice back,
TLDR: i agree

It's not just him, though. Look how he talks to Superman, or Martian Manhunter, or Flash. He is literally surrounded by people who could rip him in half faster than he could blink, and they nearly all of them are humble and respectful toward him, treating him like a brother while he doesn't give them a single bit of dignity.
What was that one picture that keeps popping up all the time, between Batman and Superman?
"I couldn't have done it without you, Batman"
"I'm aware of that"
Yet not apparently aware that Superman could practically do whatever the fuck he wants and was really only being nice.
#69 - hirollin (05/16/2014) [-]
Well, they are certainly kicking Superman fans to the curve. Making their next movie out of a non-canon comic book where superman ends up losing is pretty fucking stupid. Casting Batfleck is another worse idea. They are just pandering to batman fans cas he is the hero of the week. They focus primarily on comic book sales and toy sales. They should take a page from Marvels book and start putting out decent movies. DC has good cartoons and decent live-action shows. Too bad the cartoons never stay on the air long enough.
#70 - angelious (05/16/2014) [-]
yeah and the animated verse is another thing.they had a great show going on with young justice.then they just killed it at second season and brought us what? a watered down version of an old show that spits on everything the old show was and a crappy batman cartoon!
seriously as a dc fan this is terrible to witness...

Jefferson probably wouldn't mind. He hated a strong federal government and was a major proponent of individual liberty. He also spoke about the tyranny of the majority and how it interferes with personal freedom. He also believed that rebellion, while often bad, is necessary to ensure a healthy government.
To add in some quotes:
"The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all."
"What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must from time to time be refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."
If his words are being twisted, they're being twisted to a side that he would most likely favor.
#11 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/10/2014) [-]
The biggest issue in using the words said 230+ years ago is that they where said in a completely different world. When Franklin envisioned the US Postal Service could he in anyway imagine the existence of email or the internet? Hell no. The same can be said for any one of the founding fathers. In Jefferson's world Kings and monarchies where common place and democracy was relatively unheard of. I simply find it irksome when I hear either side using some 200 year old quote to defend their side, all I think is that this quote would be vastly different if same person who said it was alive today.
#24 - bamman (05/10/2014) [-]
The founding fathers put nothing but thought into the potential outcome of the political system that they brought into existence. They have a lot of writing on the subject where they outright denounce some of the practices that occur today in regards to politics. More than anything, time has served to prove them right in almost every venue. While their opinions are hundreds of years old, they are still very, very relevant today.
#45 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/10/2014) [-]
I did not say they are not relevant. I simply stated that I find that using a 200+ year old must be used in context. They where written in a completely different time, and this is an important distinction to keep in mind. So simply pulling a quote from Jefferson, Washington, or any other founder and going "____ said it so you have to listen to it because he is 100% correct" is foolish." Society and the entire world has changed so drastically that people should understand that our founders where simply men, nothing more. Many/mist of their ideas are still relevant today but if they where to be developed right now they would undoubtedly be different. They may contain the very similar ideology, but they would still be different
#33 - bamman (05/10/2014) [-]
I never said they were gods, just that their observations about the needs of the nation and the future of the country have proven to be very accurate even centuries after their deaths. Denouncing their words due solely to how old they are is fallacious. Also, slavery and government are not synonymous, and the fact that some of the framers of the constitution owned slaves does not discredit any of their words.
Corporations are not bad unless the government is their to turn their interests into laws, provide them with massive contracts, or protect them from the consequences of the free market. People like to blame one or the other, but neither could suck quite as much if they weren't able to work in tandem to consolidate power. You'll notice that the first bout of problems with monopolies in the US only came about after the government handed out massive contracts for the transcontinental railroad.
As for your statement about guns not being needed against the government, I would disagree. Democracies, like monarchies, are capable of tyrannizing those who are not in the majority. The founding fathers spoke heavily about this, and it is primarily why they opted for a Republic instead of a direct democracy.
And from a different approach, governments around the world have been stable for a ridiculously short period of time. It's far too early to claim that things are suddenly sustainable in the long term and eternally stable, doing so is an extreme case of historical near-sightedness. The need for individuals to express their individual and collective right to self-defense against the government is still very real.
#39 - imperial (05/10/2014) [-]
like all men are created equal? what? its hypocrisy at its finest.
corporations will do anything to be the biggest in its sector thats what the free market is.so you want to stop government contracts? last time i checked the public has benefited from a lot of government contracts, and has not done enough like infrastructure repair. except the National Infrastructure Initiative which the company's have not held there part of the bargain.
You disagree based on what? you think american minority's are going to be put down with armed force for no reason other than being minority's? and if so, you think the weapons we are limited to can actually fight back against said armed force? back when they wrote the document a militia could and did fight in a war with some equal footing. try doing that now.
now you site different country's smaller less armed governments why? its not the US government they never will be. saying somewhere is different than here does not have any credence in the US.

Keep in mind that slavery was not exclusive to blacks, and faulting someone for not being against slavery 100 years before the institution was even challenged is a bit ridiculous. Not only that, slavery was absolutely vital to the early economy of the colonies, particularly for harvesting the tobacco and cotton cash crops.
No, I don't think any country would just start spontaneously committing crimes against humanity for no reason. However, an economic collapse or a lack of resources can break the veil of stability that we've had for a while now. Countries are peaceful when things are good, they aren't when things are bad. Nazism could only come into existence in an impoverished, post-WW1 Germany. It is negligent to ignore our past.
While nobody is going to round up and shoot people in the political minority, it is still very possible to obstruct their individual liberties by rousing the majority. For instance, Japanese internment in WW2. It was a clear violation of human rights, but it was okay because of war, apparently. Then we have things like the Patriot Act and NDAA, which were pushed through due to fear of terrorist attacks. More recently, there's been another bout of effort to restrict gun rights by fallaciously labeling a wide variety of weapons as "Assault Weapons" and trying to ban them due solely to cosmetic features. I'm not assigning it to a particular party, I'm just saying the the majority will inevitably restrict the rights of the minority if they are granted a reason.
For your statement on us not being able to combat the government, keep in mind that the military is made of people. They won't blindly start killing their countrymen. In the event of outright rebellion, I would expect a large portion of the military to defect and take their tech with them. In addition, a mass of armed citizens, while unable to fight a war solely with their guns, do have the capacity to seize a location where the have arms capable of combating the government.

Both prominent parties are equally corrupt, and only once in our nation's history a third party got %25 of the vote, that third party died before the next election. otherwise the main parties have endured unchallenged since our nation's birth. The founding fathers denounced the creation political parties for this reason. Their youthful idealism unfortunately did not survive reality, as they realized they needed to come together to force their ideals upon others... Yet another casualty of reality.
Point is, yeah, you can vote, congratulations. It doesn't mean shit because the major parties who are the only contenders have been bought and paid for long ago. All you are doing is choosing which companies to sponsor.
#32 - imperial (05/10/2014) [-]
did i ever say i leaned toward any political party? nice assumption. so whats are you saying? you want to get rid of party's despite the fact that lobbyist lobby single members of our government all the time? also i agree it has become Red vs blue in today's age. but people who think alike will come to together, always has always will.
Put term limits on congress and abolish the "company's are people" bullshit so we can see who is lobbying them.
#50 - bamman (05/10/2014) [-]
It's difficult to vote someone out when the only two parties that have a reasonable chance are both bought out by the same people. That is a direct refutation to your, "and I can vote one of them out" comment. The person that goes into office following the one you voted out is also going to be bought. Even if you could somehow stop lobbying money from being spent, companies would just go back to buying politicians behind closed doors. The correct thing to attack is the interface between business and politics, not business alone.
#17 - xxxsonic fanxxx (05/10/2014) [-]
Given these thumbs down I guess people just think every quote would remain static if it occurred in a different time. It would probably have the same general idea but thats about it.
