You’re Arguing Against Strawmen (a response to Barack Obama)

The former President of the United States.  Never done a response to this guy before.  I’ve talked about his policies and how stupid they are, but now that he’s not in office, I haven’t had a lot of reason to go after the guy.  That is, until today.  It seems that Obama wanted to do himself a response of his own to people like myself who don’t vote.  In my case, I only vote when there is something I actually believe in, but I am a firm believer in NOT doing “lesser of two evils” voting.  There is no amount of bad that this country can get before I’ll do that.  Period.  Guess the so-called “Liberal” candidates have to actually earn my vote, like Bernie did in the last primary.  Alright, former President, you have my hear.  I’ll put his video below so you can see I’m taking nothing out of context, then we’ll respond.

Excuse #1: I don’t care about politics

His “refutation” of this point made me visibly cringe.  He had his ultimate “How do you do, fellow kids” moment.  Yes, because Pokemon is going to be the perfect analogy to those who just don’t care about the politics of this country.

I remember a video that GrapplingIgnorance did a LONG time ago talking about this very issue.  He breaks down the fact that some people just don’t care and some do far better than I, so here’s a link to his video.  But the former President’s Pokemon analogy is the worst.  He goes on to argue that those in power are betting on everyone to check out.  How does that help your case?  Yeah, people see the whole process as useless because our politicians are corrupt, and the whole two-party system is a scam to make people believe that there is actually is one party or the other who is in favor of the people, when we know that both parties are owned by major corporations.

He actually makes the argument that our not voting is the reason why our politics don’t happen.  Yeah, because the fact that the parties are rigged against the people, that there are PACs and Super PACs which subvert the will of the voter by giving corporations unlimited ability to buy politicians.  Hell, we saw Hillary Clinton buy the DNC and use that against her opponent.  So please, tell me again how it’s people not voting that is making the government corrupt.  All ears.

Excuse #2: why bother voting when I can’t relate to the candidates?

I remember this shit when Bush II was being elected.  All the people who said “I’ll vote for him because I think I can have a beer with him.”  I think Bill Maher said it best.

Yeah, I’ll have a beer with him.  And then I’ll crack that beer bottle on his empty fucking head.

Obama actually says this is a good point, which makes me laugh.  The simple reality is that no candidate will relate to the average American unless they are a retard who watches football and thinks America is star-spangled awesome all the time.  Or maybe they can be an introverted NEET who hardly ever sees the sun.  Either way, there is never a point where the politicians will relate to the people.  This is a strawman.  Nobody actually believes this.  But that’s no surprise.  It came from a news outlet.  They are big on making up strawmen for their talking heads to defeat.

Excuse #3: my vote doesn’t matter

That is ONLY said in respect to third-party candidates.  And yeah.  Given how the entire system is rigged against them, it’s true.  Third party candidates aren’t even allowed into the Presidential debates.  How is that fair?  This open and free democracy we claim to have, and a whole section of it isn’t allowed to participate.  Are you seeing the problem?

Obama making everything relate to pop culture is cringe-y to no end.  He makes the point that Trump won by a narrow margin.  That’s true.  People like me who didn’t vote won it for him.  But you see, the party didn’t learn the lesson that they should have from that – that people won’t vote if they don’t believe in the candidate.  Instead, what they learned is – let’s get Obama to do an Internet video!  Oh, and let’s get Joe Biden to run!  That’ll beat Trump!  The Democrats are hinging on “fuck Trump!” to win the next election, and I’m telling you now, it isn’t going to work.  People like me didn’t vote for Shillary on principal.  You think that’s going to change now, with the orange buffoon in office?  No!  I refuse to vote for someone I don’t believe in.  Period.

He then makes a baffling argument – that we can vote in candidates who support the values we do.  Did you learn NOTHING from what happened last primary?!  We saw the party get rigged against a candidate that the people did support!  Bernie Sanders was filling up stadiums.  Hillary Clinton couldn’t fill up a high school gym.  She goes booed at the DNC acceptance of the nomination.  It was revealed that the DNC had to hire people to cheer for her.  I don’t get why the Democrats can see this and learn fuck-all from it!

Excuse #4: Midterms are boring

Nobody says this.  Who, anywhere, has said this?  At what point has any person in any realm of existence actually said this?  I want an example.  Where did this “news” outlet get their information from?  Probably the same place as BuzzFeed.

He keeps saying that we should be electing people who care about what we care about.  And if there is nobody?  I am watching the gubernatorial race in my own state, and there isn’t a single candidate who supports what I care about.  Not one.  They’re all tools.  So yeah.

Excuse #5: I’m uninformed

Who, anywhere, has said this?!  Is ATTN just finding strawman issues to talk about?  This video clearly isn’t made for people who actually don’t vote on principal.  Because there hasn’t been a single point that I actually believe in raised.  He hasn’t talked about how unethical the parties are, how bought and paid for our politicians are, how the system is rigged AGAINST the will of the people and in favor of the will of the donors.  How the Democrats have an entire delegate system in place in case the people actually find a candidate they like through Superdelegates.  Nope.  It’s just this nonsense.  These are the top 7 excuses?  Two of which aren’t said by a single fucking person anywhere!  The video says that they got these from “YouTube comments.”  On which fucking video?!  Citation, bitch!

Excuse #6: I don’t know where I’m supposed to vote

This is such bullshit!  If a person actually wants to vote, it is beyond easy to figure out.  You brought it up yourself!  Google exists, and the young know how to use it.  Why is this channel making up strawman issues to be against.  It baffles me how this video has so many thumbs-up.  It really does.  These aren’t the points that real people make against voting.  It’s the points that someone who has never actually argued against those people do.  Ugh.

Excuse #7: I don’t have time to vote

That argument is made by lower-middle class moms who bitch that it’s during hours when they are working.  This is not the argument of someone who actually doesn’t vote.  It’s so stupid.  How on Earth does this video have so many thumbs-up?  I need to know.  It is of vital importance that I learn who the retards are who actually approve of what has been three straw-man arguments in a row.

Hey ATTN, I got an idea – here is my REASON that I don’t vote.  Let’s see you get Obama to talk about this one –

Reason #1: Because our government is bought and paid for, the parties are either far-right or center-right, and we have seen time and time again that candidate who are favored by the people are undercut by the powerful, like a woman you endorsed.

If that video is ever made, please post it under this article.  With baited breath, I wait.

Lucien’s Unpopular Opinion: I Don’t Care About the Beheaded Trump Pic

The land of outrage culture is never lacking in things to lose its shit about, is it?  I swear, I can’t go a single day without seeing a ton of people getting all up in arms about whatever stupid bullshit it is for people to get upset about.  I’m to the point where to even register on my list of things that illicit a reaction you have to work pretty hard.  Today’s bullshit dujour is a pic that Kathy Griffin decided to shamelessly rip off of Marilyn Manson holding the decapitated head of Donald Trump.  Yeah, can we actually get mad at that?  The fucking ginger straight-up stole that idea from Manson.  I hate how she is riding what should have been his thunder.  But whatever.  If Amy Schumer can rob other people’s material and not get called out on it surely Kathy Griffin can too.  The pic has her with some vacant expression on her face.  As expected, the Internet has lost its collective shit.

Here is where my unpopular opinion comes in – who cares?  As always, I can hear the counter-arguments.  “But Lucien, if it was a conservative with Hillary Clinton people would be losing their minds!”  Sure.  Your point?  People are losing their minds now.  This is the EXACT same reaction the left would have.  Only difference is that it’s the right who is getting to get all butthurt.  I mean, maybe the reaction would be a little louder if it was Shillary’s decapitated head on display.  After all, even the right is disillusioned with Trump at this point.  The guy is fucking bananas.  Still, the fact that the left would lose its collective shit if it was the other way around doesn’t help your argument.  I see both sides as immature and fucking stupid.

“But Lucien, that is not a joke!  Would you joke about killing someone?”  Yeah, actually.  I can even do you one better.  Heard a joke yesterday that has had me tickled pink.  It goes like this – “My girl told me to treat her like a princess, so I put her in a Mercedes and slammed it into a wall.”  Not only did I joke about Princess Di being killed, but also about killing another person to make that joke.  Boom!  Two dead people in a joke.  Joking about people being dead or killing people doesn’t bother me in the slightest.  I see too many people posting “edgy” shit for it to register beyond the fact that I am more annoyed that Manson did it first and everyone is crediting this ginger for it.  Screw that!

However, my absolute favorite counter-argument was something some conservative idiot posted where he put up that pic and a pic of ISIS holding a head and saying they don’t see the difference.  Oh really?  No difference at all?  Let me help with that – the head that the ISIS person is holding up is real.  I think that’s a pretty big fucking difference.  Don’t you?  People who buy into that logic baffle me in how dumb they are.  I honestly can say that my mind is blown.  Nobody can be that stupid.  Not one person.

The funniest part of all this – the ginger apologized.  Not for stealing Manson’s thunder, but for making this joke.  Can ANYONE in the world of “entertainment” have some fucking balls?  I hate how we have to be so PC and unoffensive in order to have a career anymore.  Just once I wish there was a celebrity who did something outright offensive (real offensive, not this “edgy” bullshit.  I’m talking saying racist shit and doing it while engaging in an ethnic stereotype) and when everyone was expecting the apology, they said something even worse.  Just so the Internet would melt down as the stupid masses didn’t get the apology that they believe they are owed.

What are my thoughts on all this – it’s a joke.  A stupid, “edgy” joke.  Is it outrageous?  Yeah.  Does it offend me?  No.  You have to work pretty goddamn hard to offend me.  I am genuinely trying to think of what could offend me.  You could have some video of a pic of George Carlin getting shit on and I still wouldn’t be offended.  I’d see it as some idiot being “edgy.”  Same as I do with this.  Not to mention how lazy it is.  Manson went all the way with a fake corpse and a ton of fake blood.  The ginger couldn’t be bothered past just a vacant expression and a very fake head.

To all of you losing your collective shit, shut the fuck up.  You are all idiots.  This was a vapid, in poor taste joke and that was not a coincidence.  For those making the equivalence argument, that doesn’t make the people getting offended look worse.  It makes you all look stupid as fuck.  Finally, to those who actually believe that this is on par with ISIS propaganda, you are fucking retarded to a level that blows my mind.

The Reaction to Trump Winning

First thing out there – I voted for Harambe.  A candidate who I could really get behind.  More than voting for Trump the Joker or Two-Face Hillary.  But I followed what happened with a good deal of fascinating awe.  Like most people, I thought that Hillary was absolutely going to mop the floor with Trump.  But while I was watching the Drunken Peasants coverage of the election situation (indivijual), I was in awe of how that man was coming up and absolutely broke Hillary’s back.  It was amazing.  One of the biggest upsets in my life.  Not to mention, the first election in my entire life that wasn’t over before the polls in my home state closed.  That’s amazing.  Donald Trump won it, fair and square.

But don’t tell the Hillary supporters that.  Or the people in the media who basically polished her knob as hard as they possibly could.  No joke, Rachel Maddow needs to go.  Her reactions to what happened that night were some of the cringiest that I have ever seen.  All her credibility as a “journalist” is gone.  And that’s nothing to the reactions from Ana Kasparian.  Her rage at the whole affair was both incredibly immature and stupid.  Then we have a bunch of Hillary supporters going out and burning the American flag all because they didn’t get what they wanted.  A landwhale decided to get on camera and scream that she is about to kill herself and she needs an immediate ambulance.  Guess that didn’t stop her from uploading the video to YouTube.  Maybe she killed herself right after that.

Then there is the new hashtag on Twitter #NotMyPresident.  Because that’s democracy for ya.  “Fuck this guy!  I’m not even going to give him a chance because fuck him!”  The maturity and the gross, immature hyperbole associated with these pathetic losers is beyond comprehension.  I seriously haven’t felt more disappointed to call myself a liberal than I do right now watching all these people in New York burning the American flag and rioting because the person they wanted didn’t win.  And these are supposed to be the people with higher educations?!  Unbelievable.

Let me make one thing fucking clear right now – I don’t like Trump.  But I am not one of these people who thinks that he is Hitler, Part Deux: The 99th Reich.  I actually did some research and could tell that his political history has been just as centrist as Hillary and Bill Clinton’s.  In fact, it’s well-known that he has been friends with them and held them in high regard up until he magically becomes a Republican and then runs for President.  If only there was some evidence out there of him saying that if he ever ran for President, he would do it as a Republican because their base is dumb and easy to manipulate.  That would be funny.

What do I think will happen over the next 4-8 years?  Not much.  We’ve seen that he has already pushed the GOP to the left on certain issues.  Cut through the left’s hyperbole and he has done some real good in bringing the party to a more open position.  And “Grabbing the Pussy” jokes aside, it’s kind of nice that someone who isn’t ashamed of sex is at the front of the party.  If they were smart, they would rebrand themselves on this and could win real points.  After all, the Republican politicians who didn’t kiss Trump’s ring are going to be kissing his ass so hard in the months to come.  But all of that aside, we have the Democrats in Congress who have already said that they will be blocking Trump at every turn.  Even though, you know, Hillary came out and in a pretty good speech said that we need to give Trump a chance.  And then there was this statement from my man Bernie about Trump which also shows that he is willing to come to the table and work with the guy, to an extent –

Donald Trump tapped into the anger of a declining middle class that is sick and tired of establishment economics, establishment politics and the establishment media. People are tired of working longer hours for lower wages, of seeing decent paying jobs go to China and other low-wage countries, of billionaires not paying any federal income taxes and of not being able to afford a college education for their kids – all while the very rich become much richer.

To the degree that Mr. Trump is serious about pursuing policies that improve the lives of working families in this country, I and other progressives are prepared to work with him. To the degree that he pursues racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-environment policies, we will vigorously oppose him.

So yeah, while we have all these flag-burning dumb-fucks who are using the #NotMyPresident tag to show their outrage, the actually mature people are willing to play politics with the guy.  Funny how that works.

For my money, I figure that the next four years will actually be pretty uneventful.  I was more worried about Hillary, to be honest.  Her saber-rattling with Russia to cover her ass with WikiLeaks didn’t scare people NEARLY as much as it should have.  That shit scared the ever-living fuck out of me.  I was 100X more afraid of Hillary starting WWIII than I ever will be of Trump.  If anything, the fact that Putin likes the guy makes me feel better.  We have been fighting a proxy war with Russia in Syria.  Maybe now we can walk away from that.

In the meantime, if you are one of these fucks who uses that tag or who is makes a video screaming about how Hillary not being elected means suicide, you need fucking help.  That is so immature.  Speak of, Ana, how old are you, again?  I ask because your reaction last night was like a child who didn’t get their toy.

A Law To Force People to Vote? Yeah…

There are those wonderfully stupid moments in the history of every country.  Those moments where you can see some naive politician who is stupid enough to think that a bad idea could actually make a good thing happen.  Like when America decided to enact Prohibition.  Yeah, that was a brilliant idea, wasn’t it?  Or the drug war.  Another brilliant idea.  Now, on what has got to be one of the most naive pieces of proposed legislation, it comes again.  Strange thing – this time it is President Obama who has the totally ridiculous idea.  Rooted in an idea that has merit, but would be executed in a world of idiots and assholes, where the public would troll this into oblivion.  I am, of course, talking about a news report where he said that he thought that a law forcing the public to vote was worth considering. (link here)

The concept is called “Mandatory Voting.”  Such a wonderfully misguided name for a misguided proposed law.  One that would go wrong for so many reasons.

To start with, a little disclosure.  I only vote on ballot initiatives that matter to me.  That’s it.  I don’t vote for political candidates.  Why?  Because they are all crooked.  Every single one of them.  Our entire government, from the ground up, is corrupt.  We live in this unpleasant situation where we have governments who are corrupt, corporations who are unconcerned, and a populace who are stupid.  Who should rule us?  Well, I don’t have the answer, and when you see how much corporate money goes into elections, it is clear that voting in this country is useless, because corporations already own the vote.  That whole schtick about us having the power in democracy is bullshit.  Voting for ballot initiatives is the only time I feel like I’m making a real difference.  It got the minimum wage raised in my state (by an overwhelming margin.  Yay!) and pot legalized.  See, there’s democracy in action.  Although, the elected officials of the city I live in decided to go and muck it up as fast as they could, by making legalized pan more trouble than its worth.  With all the budget problems my state is having, this vexes me.

Now, on to the legislation, what naive and idiotic thought process is Obama having with this proposed legislation?  He think that it would be “transformative.”  You poor, naive fool.  Just like those liberals who think that we can solve gun violence by banning guns.  It seems that I need to educate you on why this is a terrible idea for legislation.

For starters – how would you enforce this?  I’m genuinely curious.  Are you going to force people to sign up to vote?  If so, are you then going to keep a tally on who voted and anyone who didn’t gets arrested or a fine or something?  Yeah, because that TOTALLY sounds like something that is democratic and part of a free society.  Sure.  I mean, it’s not like it defeats the purpose of democracy if you are going to force the people to do things that they don’t want to do.  I can already hear the people who support this –

But Lucien, that’s the whole idea!  To get those lazy idiots to get involved with this country!

That leads rather well into the second flaw – they still won’t care.  Not one of them will care.  It’ll be like those kids who don’t care about the standardized tests in schools.  They’ll just fill in whatever and not care who they are voting for.  On every ballot initiative, they’ll just make their mark for whatever random thing comes first.  They won’t even bother to read it!  There will be countless votes that nobody will have even cared enough to read what it says.  It’ll be like people who click “I accept” privacy statements.  Is that the kind of person who you want to be voting?  Someone who can turn a good piece of legislation that the people who do care are in support of, just because the overwhelming majority won’t even bother to read it?  Really?

Oh, and don’t think that votes for politicians will get off easier.  See, this is where the fact that people are assholes will come into play.  Yes, you’ll see countless people deciding to troll the voting system that they are begrudgingly forced to participate in.  Every candidate has a write-in option.  That’s part of fair democracy.  Candidates have won by write-in campaigns.  So guess what people will do?  Myself among them.  We will take the time to write in the most ridiculous names possible.  The entire voting process will be people at voting stations having to tally votes with write-in names like “Sir Peter Penisburg” (the one I am using for my candidate votes) and “Goa Fucka Yoself.”  Do you really think it’s fair to make the people who work hard at vote tallying places have to wade through the endless trolling, just to get to the 1/3 who actually care about it?  Do you really?  Is that the kind of democracy that you want to fight for?

Look, President Obama, I get that your heart is in the right place.  American voting numbers are astronomically small.  But, you know what – I would rather have 5% of people who are informed about the issues and know why the are voting the way they are vote than 100% of people, 60% of whom couldn’t possibly care less and are just there to avoid a fine.  What does it make our democracy if we have to hold people at gunpoint to get them to vote?  Or rather, what does it make our democracy if we actually do force them to get involved.  Freedom of choice is just that – they are free to choose to not vote.  I am free to choose to write in Sir Peter Penisburg on every candidate that I have to see on a ballot, because they are all corporate shills.  If you want to take that away, then the entire purpose of our democracy goes with it.

But Lucien, it’s already working in other countries!

For the same reason that banning guns works in other countries, it wouldn’t work here.  Our culture is too different from that of the nations where this and that worked.  If you don’t like that, I’m sorry.  But it isn’t going to change just because we give people an ultimatum.  Only this time, legislation that really matters can be derailed by people who don’t want to bother at all.

Do you want them to vote?  Serious question.

2012 Election: Where is the SANE candidate?

It’s another election year, and the political pundits are already talking about it.  It’s looking to be a really big year for this country.  While nobody is talking about the Democrats especially much, there is plenty of talk about Republicans.  However, lost amongst all this conversation is one thing – where is the sane candidate?

This is a question that neither side is able to answer.  Let’s take a good look at the candidates and see if we can answer this question.

First up, let’s take a look at Barack Obama, the current President.  Now, he runs unopposed in the primaries.  It’s not without precedent for a President to be taken out of office by a member of his own party.  But he isn’t being challenged.  Why?  Well that’s easy – the Democrats are nothing but bleeding cowards who won’t stand up for the right thing.  And non-existent God-knows there is a lot that Obama should have been stood up against.

The fact is that Obama is an evil person.  The theory used to be that he was just another toothless coward who occupied the White House, but no, the fact is that Obama is evil.  We weren’t sure of this until he decided to endorse the National Defense Authorization Act, and in fact asked for the revisions to the Act so that American citizens could be arrested without cause or trial, detained for life, and in fact tortured, as long as they are “suspected terrorists.”

Here’s a nifty fact – the FBI labels peaceful activists groups as domestic terrorists.  Do the math, and figure out how long it’ll be before the Occupy protestors aren’t sent to jail, but Gitmo.  That may sound like an alarmist position, but really, it is tame when one thinks about how much has been lost.  The Bill of Rights has died this year.  Who will miss it now that it’s gone?

So that’s the President we have now, an evil person.  But what about the other side of the fence?  The GOP has some remarkable candidates front and center this year.  Not in a good way, mind you.  But let’s take a long look at them.

First up, there is Rick Satorum.  This is a guy who is evil beyond all recognized nature.  He is extraordinarily anti-gay.  He has talked in detail about how gay sex isn’t like straight sex.  Apparently, only straight people are good.  And he has also talked about his Catholic beliefs that hold that any sex that isn’t missionary and for the purpose of child-creation is bad.  So there’s that.

Then there are his policies regarding women’s reproductive rights.  He is clearly anti-choice.  He doesn’t want women to have any choice at all.  Rape or incest?  Nah, that’s all part of God’s plan.  How about in the case of saving the mother’s life?  Here’s another kicker – not even then!  He believes that a woman should have to die instead of give up a fetus.

Santorum also believes that there shouldn’t be health care options for the poor.  Universal health care?  Not a chance.  According to him, nobody has ever died because they didn’t have health care.  The egotism of that statement is just amazing.  Not only is he evil, but he’s also stupid.

Next up, there’s Newt Gingrich.  This guy is scum of the highest calibur.  Not only does he follow a similiar moral belief pattern as Santorum (ie. insane religious right), but he also is scum on a personal level.  This is the guy who ditched his wife while she was dying in order to go and be with somebody else.  Not only is this guy dirt, but how he has remained in the public eye as significantly as he does is a genuine mystery.

Not really all that much more to say about Gingrich other than he’s an evil person who has no qualms whatsoever.

Then there is Ron Paul.  This guy isn’t evil so much as he is crazy.  His economic isolationist ideas are stupid beyond reason and would drive this country into the ground.  He also wants to destroy the tax code, thereby making our economy unsustainable.  He also thinks that there should be no regulations on business.  So businesses like dairy farmers don’t have to pasteurize their milk.  We can all die of e coli because they didn’t want to have to do any work.  It’s a laziness policy that Ron Paul endorses.  He endorses that people should be allowed to be as lazy as possible if they are in power and have no obligations.  Pathetic.

He also is a bleeding hypocrite when it comes to his social policies.  He wants to make it so that abortion rights are left up to the individual states.  Okay, fine (stupid, but fine), but he then wants to pass the Sanctity of Life Act which would effectively make abortion illegal across the board.  No reproductive rights at all.  How’s that small government thing go again, Mr. Paul?

It’s a pity that Bachmann and Cain left the race, but both of them did.  They were evil on the level of Santorum.  So who does that leave?  There’s always Mitt Romney.  He is looking to be the most likely to get elected because he isn’t a complete monster like the other candidates.  He’s on the same level of evil as Obama is, but at least he’s open about it.  That’s a hell of a lot better than our turncoat President.

So, that is the list of the people who we have running.  I ask again – where is the sane candidate?  Not one of these people is even worth talking about for running this country.  These people are a joke, and it is really getting on my nerves that the American people and their interests as so down-played by these clowns and the media that follows them.

If anybody asks Ron Paul a tough question, all of his cultish followers jump on them.  Of course, with the media ignoring him, and softballing everybody else, who is actually getting a tough question?  If you watched any of the Republican debates (there were only a hundred), then you saw that all of the questions being asked were just softball easy to answer questions that solidify that they are conservative.

This election is a joke.  The Occupy movement may have come too late to make things serious.  The worst part now is that we need serious.  The Bill of Rights is dead.  The internet will be dead soon if SOPA and PIPA pass.  The economy is tanking again, and the tanking is picking up speed.  The cost of things like health care, college, and many others are out of control, and nobody is paying attention.

We need things to get serious.  And we need a candidate who isn’t all smoke and mirrors like Obama.  We need somebody who is worth their salt, and can stand tall under pressure.  And ideas?
