      Hi, looking forward to your reply on the 14th amendment issue. Please note that I edited my post to correct my failure to recall (when posting my most recent response) that the USA does currently have one incorporated territory, Palmyra Atoll; people born there are given citizenship by the 14th Amendment (like the states proper, but unlike unincorporated territories such as Puerto Rico, some of which have been given citizenship by Congress and some of which haven't, and also unlike Indian reservations).

      "the tuskegee experiment was a social experiment"
      social experiment means it's socialism ... okay lol

      x
      "funded by taking money from tax payers under the threat of violence" you left the most important part out...

      on 04 November 2018

      x
      Sorry, I wasn't thinking about the fact that you equate taxation (any sort at any level) with socialism. Damn, every country in the world is socialist now ... must be rough for non-socialists.

      on 04 November 2018

      x
      yes socialist programs funded by tax payers are socialist in nature, that you would even attempt to dispute that just shows how deep you've been brain washed
      as i've said previously you need to give up on the notion that socialism is inherently good and only good can come of it... its not only woefully naive but wrong

      on 04 November 2018

      x
      You just told me Tuskegee was socialist BECAUSE it was tax funded ... therefore all tax funded things are socialist. When I point that out, I'm not disputing anything, I'm just highlighting what I see as insanity.

      ok let me ask you a question, how can socialism go bad? what are some of the negative consequences that can arise out of socialism?

      on 05 November 2018

      x
      I appreciate that you are desperate to change the subject, but I'm not interested. But I'll give you a brief answer: things that are not the Tuskegee experiment.

      on 05 November 2018

      x
      i'm not changing the subject, its that i'm dealing with someone who can't establish the very simple connection between socialism and social programs that harm a community
      i mean what am i supposed to do with someone like that? you tell me... its as i said a completely delusional denial of reality rooted in the idea that only good can come from socialism

      on 06 November 2018

      x
      You said Tuskegee was socialism because it was taxpayer funded.

      on 07 November 2018

      x
      you haven't answered my question, what am i supposed to do with someone who can't establish the very simple connection between socialism and social programs that harm a community?

      if you had answered this question you would have found the answer to your own

      on 08 November 2018

      x
      Your question "what am I supposed to do with someone like that?" is (1) stupid and (2) putting the cart before the horse. And it's also obviously trying to change the subject from why you think the Tuskegee experiment is an example of socialism. So far you've said "it's socialism because it was a social experiment" and then you changed your answer to "it's socialism because it's taxpayer funded". So at that point you're claiming that every form of gov't that collects taxes and does things with that tax money is socialist—thus, every gov't in existence is socialist. When confronted with this elementary school level logical deduction, THAT MOMENT is when you asked me your question and when I don't follow you on your topic derailment I'm the one doing the dodging according to you. You're not fooling anyone but yourself, and I actually doubt you're even fooling yourself.

      Why does the Tuskegee experiment being taxpayer funded make it socialism? You said this fact was the "most important part".

      on 08 November 2018

      x
      " So far you've said "it's socialism because it was a social experiment""
      i never said that i always said that it was the result of socialism because it was funded through theft under threat of violence(taxation)

      " So at that point you're claiming that every form of gov't that collects taxes and does things with that tax money is socialistâ€"
      no every government has socialist elements, but its the degree to which the government controls resources that determines whether its socialist or not

      a car that is red but has black stripes is considered a red car... how dumb would you have to be to not understand this?

      "When confronted with this elementary school level logical deduction, THAT MOMENT is when you asked me your question "
      leaving aside the fact that you are wrong to begin with, i wouldn't trust your deduction skills anyway... here you are fighting for socialism when you don't even understand what it is and assume stupidly(from what i have observed) that nothing negative can come from it

      "Why does the Tuskegee experiment being taxpayer funded make it socialism?"
      socialism in practical terms is reallocation of the resources of a community by its government and can result in both good and bad for a community

      how dumb would you have to be to think that all government reallocation of resources results in good for a community as you appear to believe?

      on a scale of 1 to 10?

      "socialism in practical terms is reallocation of the resources of a community by its government and can result in both good and bad for a community"
      Literally everything every government does is using (i.e. reallocating) resources collected from communities. Therefore, according to your definition, everything every government does is 100% socialist (except for when it shrinks, which is only partially socialist—still reallocating what is left). How is that a useful definition of socialism?

      But yes. Under your condition that "taxpayer funded" ipso facto is "socialist", I would agree that by that definition the Tuskegee experiment was a socialist program. Just like the police and the army and the national highway system and corporate subsidies. Any and all government activity is socialist. By that definition.

      And I further admit that you never explicitly said Tuskegee was socialist "because it was a social experiment." You said it was socialist because it was a taxpayer funded socialist experiment and (as you said) the second part was the key factor in your mind. You got me for real on that one, fair and square.

      And by the definition of socialism as "including (but not necessarily limited to) everything taxpayer funded" then I'm sure we can agree on plenty of obvious things governments have done wrong over the course of world history (which are necessarily socialism) including but not limited to the Tuskegee experiment. Although I would argue that the basic concept of government, in general, is not to blame for specific misdeeds of various governments such as that. (And therefore the same could perhaps be said of socialism.)

      correction, "taxpayer funded socialist experiment" was a mistype of "taxpayer funded social experiment"

      Regarding the ban on vivster for "outright call someone else a member of the KKK and flame them"did you edit that part out of his post?

      If so, please ignore the rest of this comment. If not, I disagree with the reasoning you gave for your decision, because he didn't say that. He said, "you are so far right your mirror left you to join the KKK". If I say "yo mama so fat her belt size is equator" am I calling YOU a planet? Even more pedantically, if his mirror LEFT him to join the KKK this implies to me that he ISN'T a KKK member.

      However, that's not to say that you can't justify the ban on other grounds. But, if you didn't remove the part of the post you cited in your reasoning, it never existed.

      P.S. I checked the forum rules and didn't see anything suggesting that this comment is wrong. If you disagree, please let me know & cite the rule.

      x
      Mirror = reflection of yourself. Its pretty self explanatory.

      on 01 September 2018

      x
      I guess I'm just overly literal.

      For me it would logically fail to mean this because if he was a KKK member then his reflection wouldn't need to leave (would already consider itself in the KKK), or his reflection had different desires from him (i.e. desire to join the KKK) then they aren't identical.

      A while ago you said "world war 2 ended when Hitler lost to Russia not because of the American nukes that was only for Japan". To me, this sounded like you were saying the entire Pacific Theater of WW2 was essentially just a side-show. Do you think that's a fair interpretation of what you said, or an unfair one? If the latter, why? And do you still stand by that statement?

      x
      I think it is fair to say that it was a side show no matter how many people fought or lost. The centre was Europe and western Asia I.e basically Russia and Europe. The central nations involved were Germany on one side and the allies on the other. Even If Japan surrendered but Germany won against Russia it would not have ended there. And even if Japan did not surrender but 'won' and Germany lost the war would have been over

      on 04 June 2017

      x
      The war would have been over in the Pacific but not Europe on the one hand, and on the other hand it would have been over for Germany but not for Japan, the US, Britain (Japan attacked their colonies), France (ditto), China, Russia (if they went to war like they had agreed to do), and so on... Honestly, I'm surprised that someone from Pakistan has this opinion. If Japan had "won" the war, you might have been conquered by them! I don't think they cared as much about India as they did about China, but Britain was fighting them from India, and if they took over in retaliation they most certainly would not have allowed Pakistan to break loose.

      on 04 June 2017

      x
      And by "India" I meant to say the British Raj at the time which split up into India and "Pakistan" including what is now Bangladesh.

      on 04 June 2017

      x
      We are not talking about local consequences though we are talking about the overall scenario. Even if Japan 'won' whatever that even means if Germany lost its the allies overall victory and similarly of Germany won but Japan didn't it would be the allies lose regardless. Even if Japan conquered India not kuch would have changed they couldn't handle such a massive nation anyways at that point so they would have to come up with a way of getting out. Perhaps Pakistan as we know it wouldn't have existed in that scenario but the overall war was much more Europe centric and Japan was not fighting in Europe that way so

      on 04 June 2017

      x
      Many of the large players in the war were European, and even the USA adopted a "Germany first" strategy, but that was a strategic choice for what they felt the most efficient way to achieve victory in both theaters was. In terms of war deaths, according to what I skimmed in Wikipedia, deaths of military personnel were about twice as numerous on the European side, but in terms of total (militay and civilian) deaths it's closer, more like 41-43 million EUR and 25-35 PAC, still higher EUR but nowhere near twice as much and nowhere near a "sideshow". And "the war" would most definitely not have been over. Even just on the military side (both deaths and total number of personnel involved) it was still very massive and quite comparable even if not as big (and obviously not where it all started off).

      To me it seems as ridiculous to call the Pacific Theater a sideshow to the European Theater as it is ridiculous to call the Western Front (France, Italy, Africa etc.) a sideshow to the Eastern Front, or vice versa. Although some do in fact believe those things.

      On a side note, if the island nation of Britain could handle ruling India for many decades I'm not sure why you're so convinced Japan couldn't. Do you just mean they would be too busy trying to rule China instead?
