      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Politics in a nutshell.

Recommended Posts

I did not write this.....but I agree with it.

 

"Maybe I'm just a cynic, but here's my take on the American political system in a nutshell: Republicans run on a right wing populist platform in order to advance the interests of a very small shareholder class, then stay there once they get into power. The public gets disgusted with this and elects a bunch of democrats, who had run on a left wing ... Read Morepopulist platform. Unlike the Reps, however, they move to the center once they're in power (in order to advance the interests of a very small shareholder class). The public gets disgusted with this and the cycle begins anew... For my own part, I could see this coming at least a year ahead of time. Obama is the second coming of Bill Clinton, who was the second coming of Jimmy Carter, who was the second coming of JFK, yada, yada, yada..."

You could fit Boner's brain in a nutshell - a pistachio nutshell.

The definition of the center in political nomenclature means capturing the interest of a large group of people by promoting moderate policies which land in the middle between different political extremes, you dumb fuck.

You're reading to much into his words. Semantically, he meant nothing by them. Absolute zero.

Hard to pay attention to such details when you keep getting distracted by Sammy Hagar's rad guitar solos on You Tube. Awesome!!

Right, except in the USA where the definition of the center in political nomenclature means capturing the interests of two institutionalized, anti-competitive national parties (controlled by a very small shareholder class), while silencing "political extremes" which happen to represent the broad but marginalized interests of the supposed electorate.

Don't play the game, just watch two sides play the game for you, on TV. That is the best way to be a team player. Then everybody wins. :moondance:

When the only publicly acceptable means of political expression is whether you are rooting for the D team or the R team, then yes, we are all pretty much a silent majority. But you are welcome to cheer and wave a flag if you want. It is more fun that way, and you get to feel like you are part of the political process. If you're lucky, a guy from your hometown might even get called up to the big leagues ( he probably wont remember you though).
