Generally, I do dislike them.

I realized in 2006 that I wasn't really a Republican. I grew up in the Reagan era, and liked Reagan. I liked Gingrich too, but came to hate the Republicans in the mid 2000s. I will take the Devil's Advocate position a lot. I found myself explaining Bush to people who had "Bush Derangement Syndrome," and I disagreed with a lot of his policies--mostly his big business preference. However, I found things like "Airplane Mode" on phones to be simply intolerable. Their lie back then was that the phone would interfere with the plane's electronics--having worked in RF engineering, I know that's absolutely bullshit and I frankly do not want to be ruled by people who I think are complete morons or liars or both.

I'm more focused on the immediate aspects of making it impossible for the liberals to govern.
Tainari88 wrote:The capitalist class killed the nationalists.
Nationalism is enjoying quite a resurgence. Even this Coronavirus outbreak illustrates why border controls are a good thing. Open borders would mean pandemics could spread easily.

The Law of Entropy by itself will see to it that the workers of the world will never unite. Socialism depends on universalism, and that is something I came to loath among both the liberals and the socialists.

Tell that to illegal alien farm workers in the US.
The cotton gin--counterintuitively--increased the demand for slave labor and was fracturing the country's economic system. The country would naturally have split on a North/South divide if they didn't crush slavery. Read the inscription on the Lincoln Memorial. It is meant to be stirring and poignant, but it is also terse because a lot of the country did not have anything nice to say about Abraham Lincoln.
Tainari88 wrote:This is the next evolution BJ.
You are going to have to accept it.
International capitalism cannot be sustained, because capitalism itself depends on nation-states, corporations, national currencies and courts to enforce contracts.
Tainari88 wrote:No, BJ, it is very different growing up speaking Spanish and being a part of a Latin American community where you see them as equal to you in everything.
When you say things like that I think of my upper class Mexican friends and laugh. It's as if you think all people in Latin American communities believe in equality, and they clearly don't.
Tainari88 wrote:The issue I have with you BJ, is that you don't believe in equality.
As a computer head, I came to the realization that the political left simply cannot deal with actual inequalities within nature itself. That is why I came to abandon egalitarianism outside of law. It modern computer languages, = is an assignment operator. Whereas, == is a comparison operator. In computer science "5" is not equal to 5, because one is a string and the other is an integer. In computer science, equality is a very precise meaning. Forensic evidence such as fingerprints and DNA are very reliable, and generally unique (identical twins excepted). Computer science also deals a lot with keys, GUIDs, serial numbers, etc. Uniqueness within a namespace if you will. You can't have uniqueness and equality. They are natural enemies. Only in an abstract sense can they be equal.

I'm more pragmatic about this sort of thing.
Tainari88 wrote:There is a lot you don't know about Puerto Rico BJ.
You stated you don't give a shit. So I won't elaborate.
There's a lot I don't know about a lot of things. If I say something like, "I know a lot about Puerto Ricans. I watched West Side Story as a kid," I'm only pulling your leg. I am also for Puerto Rican independence, if for no other reason then to render some of the Insular decisions moot. I also think multicultural states are easily fractured, whether that's Canada, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Soviet Union, and even the EU. In computer science, we also use the notion of "scope." When I say I don't give a shit, it's not about saying I don't think Puerto Ricans have any value. Far from it. It's just the same as I really don't spent a hell of a lot of time thinking about Suriname or French Guiana. That's better characterized as apathy, but you seem to assume a binary choice of sympathy or antipathy. Frankly, I don't think you spend a lot of time thinking about Suriname either.

The Cuban American community has a very different opinion of things because they fled communism. So I rather doubt that Bernie Sanders kind words for Fidel Castro are going to get him too far in Florida.

Yeah. Apparently, he said at a rally that he was running for the US Senate. It's kind of sad. He's just not all there, and the Democrats really need to have an intervention. He cannot win, and if he did win, he would be a candidate for the 25th Amendment since he never seems to know where he is.
