We have Labor Day, but when is Capital Day?

"Every day is Capital day."

I met an Anarchist once and I had to explain to him what Somalia is

He then had to explain to you what anarchism is, obviously.

I’m working on Labor Day with no holiday pay, and I’m okay with that because I’m not a commie.

Just to remind you that there is a difference between libertarianism and the Tea Party.

This was an interesting survey, although the sample was small.  I’m just not quite sure what the point of it was?  From what I gathered from it, it would seem that many Libertarians and libertarian-leaning individuals surveyed have the same viewpoints as the Tea Party/Republicans.  I can only assume they were trying to contrast libertarians from the evangelicals, in which case I still ask, why?  The important thing is that we all have the same goal of turning this country around.

We may all want to “turn the country around,” but we have different ideas of what that means, different methods, and different priorities. When people think that libertarians are the same as the Tea Party or the Christian right, it’s a barrier to communication because we have to spend time breaking down the stereotypes.

because men OBVIOUSLY don’t have any problems. Nope. Life is a fucking peach. There’s no unrealistic body images, emotional demands, success/financial demands. there’s no skepticism when a guy’s alone with a child. Men are totally not ignored when they’re abused, sexually assaulted, or raped. Nope. that never happens.

Can we stop pretending like it’s so fucking hard to be female and so easy to be male? Because it’s fucking bullshit. Both sexes have their problems. Deal with it.

-the Polish one

What about the part where only women would be labeled as rapists?
And the part where no one would believe women when they told people that they get physically abused by their spouse?
Or the part where men would get to make the “abortion” choice and not the woman?

We’re just going to talk about childish, biased, cherrypicked, petty issues?
Oh.

I don’t get the first one. The magazines by women for women have the idealized models on the front, but the men’s magazines often have idealized men on the cover as well. People just see Cosmo more often because women go grocery shopping more often.

In 2011, Piper Kerman declared that orange is the new black with her book of the same name. This was just the latest in a long line of people saying things are “the new black.” Tracy Morgan deemed himself the new black in his 2009 book, unseating his long-time…

The famous old story, repeated hundreds of times, that the factories employed women and children and that these women and children, before they were working in factories, had lived under satisfactory conditions, is one of the greatest falsehoods of history. The mothers who worked in the factories had nothing to cook with; they did not leave their homes and their kitchens to go into the factories, they went into factories because they had no kitchens, and if they had a kitchen they had no food to cook in those kitchens. And the children did not come from comfortable nurseries. They were starving and dying. And all the talk about the so-called unspeakable horror of early capitalism can be refuted by a single statistic: precisely in these years in which British capitalism developed, precisely in the age called the Industrial Revolution in England, in the years from 1760 to 1830, precisely in those years the population of England doubled, which means that hundreds or thousands of children—who would have died in preceding times—survived and grew to become men and women. There is no doubt that the conditions of the preceding times were very unsatisfactory. It was capitalist business that improved them. It was precisely those early factories that provided for the needs of their workers, either directly or indirectly by exporting products and importing food and raw materials from other countries. Again and again, the early historians of capitalism have—one can hardly use a milder word—falsified history.
