I got into it with a Bernie supporter...
#1
A little piece of me died today. I got into it with one of my friends on Facebook. I knew this guy pretty well on a first name basis in real life a few years ago...he's not dumb (or at least wasn't). He's from a very conservative religious family. In the past few months I've seen him slowly being corrupted by the cancer known as "Democratic Socialism" and Bernie Sanders. I tried a few times over the intervening months to put him back on the right track to show him with facts and reason why Socialism of any kind isn't the way. We were having a reasonable back and forth about the merits of Socialism vs Capitalism and then he sent me this message. When I read it...and read the word "Earthship"... and then read the rest... I swear I felt a small piece of me die inside and I knew he was lost and there was no point in trying to save him anymore. This is the post verbatim. I swear this is not a joke:

Between Trump and Sanders we are losing too many to this zombie virus this election cycle...The cost has been too great. Watching people fall prey to these two con men it's like watching the black sheep of your family talk up an abusive boyfriend and tell everyone, "This time is going to be different! He's changed!" after she just broke free.

Is he, or has he ever been a member of FOAC?

We should have used our nukes in the 60's - maybe the 50's?

Not on the Soviets - on Woodstock.

I can't believe hippies are still around. They're like fucking zombies.

Interesting that he thinks all the stuff he's currently saddled with are the fault of corporations and the government has nothing to do with it. It isn't corporations that have started all the regulations regarding water usage. It isn't corporations that instituted the current healthcare debacle, and Bernie has no solution to bring rates back down to the Pre-obama fiasco.

Having Bernie as president would only mean more government in our lives, not less.

No doubt this off-grid person sent his reply on his iPhone after stopping at McDonalds for lunch.

No, McDonalds is for those icky black people that they pretend to stand up for. They have pricey, trendy places to eat where they can bask in each other's wonder.

Like at Panera, home of the $10 ham sandwich.

Like this one here, oh wait, they're closing:

Quote:The four-minute radio piece highlighted the social mission of the ethnic restaurant and catering service which hired primarily refugees and paid them $15 an hour.

“We were mobbed. People found us,” Upohar’s owner Srirupa Dasgupta said of the weeks following the story. “It was amazing.”

Dasgupta said the sudden influx of customers made her think her small, out-of-the-way restaurant could fulfill her goal of making money while performing a social mission.

But such optimism was short lived.

Six weeks after the national radio story that prompted the new wave of customers, business returned to a trickle.

And earlier this month, Dasgupta decided to pull the plug on the restaurant which was only averaging 10 customers a day and has her nearly $100,000 in the hole.

I guess all those social justice warriors just didn't have in them to keep going back.

Believe it or not he's still very pro-gun I've seen him make statements attesting to it in recent history. I still see him quote Bible passages in stuff about Bernie too. How you square that circle I have no idea because I don't think the Earthship crowd looks too kindly on guns. Lol I think he's too new at being a hippy/socialist to see that you don't really get to pick and choose with people who follow those ideologies.

He was also trying to explain to me how the bank bailouts happened...uh...uh.... because evil capitalism! He explained to me how if we got back all the money the evil corporations are holding offshore that we could pay for everything Bernie wants like free college. I asked him whether he plans to invade the Caribbean or Europe to get it without driving businesses away? No response.
