Re: The GLP Family - Love of Freedom is Our Common Thread
I think this is an awesome thread. Its so true what you say OP.

Its home here to me.

I view each thread as a house. What happens in the house stays in the house, though there are some neighborhoods here too.

What i mean is, i can be productive and contributing, or i can just be having a good time and a few laughs, or i could be being rude. I try not to let it carry over into other threads. If i disagree with you in one in thread, i may wholeheartedly agree with you in another. You could piss me off in one thread, and make me laugh or applaud and cheer you on in another.

I love the gloves off diversity here.

Thanks, J&V. You always have the best threads.

I agree that each thread is a "house" but as a longtime member, I'm really selective about how I post. I "own" my posts. I "own" my reputation.

That's why I suggested that ACs go ahead and sign up. When you have an "account", you are "accountable" and thus not so apt to troll or hit&run.

LOVE your threads. I always try to give you Karma for your threads but you post good ones so often that I can't give it to you for each one!

Guilty as charged. I'm drunk as shit. Sue me.

I had a tough day at work--I have one employee who was dead-set on quitting. He's the only one I've got. I can't let him go (although I've got no choice in the matter--he's contracted). I had to beg the guy. He had every reason to quit too. His wife has breast cancer and she needs him. We worked out an agreement. THANK GOD.

Business is a great way to make a living but you're always hanging by a thread. It's tough sometimes, man!

If it is internet based then I could help you out, so let me know cause distance aint a problem.

Thanks for the offer. But my guy is a salesman. I have a jewelry store. He is paid per diem and. commission per sale. I had to raise his per diem today (and now have to contract to pay him in cash every day) but I kept him on. It's worth it and he's in a tight spot. My brother will work when he can't. Of course, I'll cover for him too.

Yeah--I appreciate your willingness to jump right in but unless you live in or around Fairmont, WV then it won't work out.

THANKS THOUGH!!!

Even feeble minds are burdened for CONSISTENCY.
 Quoting: simultaneous_final


what do you mean they will come around to "true freedom"?

freedom is not just one directional or two directional it is all directional. true freedom is that they are being doing saying what they like. your freedom is to disagree with them and if you have the power to, to censor them or silence them or threaten them with laws. That is your freedom to do. but to say that true freedom is that which is for instance "not racist".. what is you argument for that? Why is true freedom, as opposed to.. what? false freedom? that which is not racist?

freedom, at its base, is silent on what is truly or falsly itself because by obvious self evidence, all that exists has freely become so.

No one has ever seen a perfect circle, nor a perfectly straight line, yet everyone knows what a circle and a straight line are.
Perceived circles or lines are not exactly circular or straight, and true circles and lines could never be detected since by definition they are sets of infinitely small points.

 Quoting: Requiem


A racist can be "truly free". A homophobe can be the same.

But public and private are two different things.

For example, I am a business owner. I am free to hire who I wish.

Though it's completely hypothetical, let's say:

I like whites and want to employ them exclusively.

I hire whites.

However, I certainly can't argue that other businesses might want to hire blacks. That's their right. FREEDOM.

Say I like gays (and I do). But say I like them exclusively (I don't but for the sake of argument), I only hire gays. That's my right.

But I can't be offended that others might hire only straights. FREEDOM.

Freedom (in the Libertarian tradition) is liberty to do what one wishes so long as it:

1. does not breach the consent of another person(s).

2. does not breach a contract (meeting of sound minds).

 Quoting: simultaneous_final


as of absolute freedom - one is under NO obligation to respect the freedom and "rights" of others. Absolute freedom means you have your OWN rules which may or may not be the same as other's, without.

To say that one can be free as long as they are not free to rule themselves as they see fit is YOU being inconsistent OP.


If one has absolute freedom, that does not insinuate that everyone can ACTUALISE everything they wish to do, because free will means that someone can come along and force you to choose otherwise by violence, threat or other means.

This is an expression of free will. What you must be aware of here is the finer point that if you choose to enforce YOUR rules of right and wrong behaviour onto racists, homophobes or whoever, then it is YOU claiming to take the freedoms away from people to be and do as they wish.... not specifically them [claiming to be taking the freedoms away from people].

But they don't OWN what they post. They are literally Anonymous Cowards.

Re: The GLP Family - Love of Freedom is Our Common Thread
A racist can be "truly free". A homophobe can be the same.

But public and private are two different things.

For example, I am a business owner. I am free to hire who I wish.

Though it's completely hypothetical, let's say:

I like whites and want to employ them exclusively.

I hire whites.

However, I certainly can't argue that other businesses might want to hire blacks. That's their right. FREEDOM.

Say I like gays (and I do). But say I like them exclusively (I don't but for the sake of argument), I only hire gays. That's my right.

But I can't be offended that others might hire only straights. FREEDOM.

Freedom (in the Libertarian tradition) is liberty to do what one wishes so long as it:

1. does not breach the consent of another person(s).

2. does not breach a contract (meeting of sound minds).

dude, this may be because you have been drinking that you are not being aware of what you have said.. you said that racists and homophobes were not being TRULY FREE and that eventually they would come around to being so. By this you insinuate that true freedom does not encompass being racist. yet in the above post you claim that it does... yet in the bottom part you again say that it doesn't. OP you are being inconsistent. either being racist and homophobic is being true freedom or it isn't.

if it isn't, because you claim the traditional libertarian tradition says that to be so is OUTLAWED, then it is YOU who are claiming to take the rights of people away from them. specifically the freedom to breach the consent of another person and to breach a contract. you have the freedom to enforce these rules by claiming your rights and wrongs overule the freedom of another person.

To do so is to understand that you are upholding a type of civil freedom at the expense of the absolute freedom of others. Even though truly you cannot take that away - people can ALWAYS do as they wish, regardless of the rules.

So, if you claim that homophobes and racists are not upholding "true freedom" because they try to stop others from being free you must see the parallel OP to yourself claiming to stop homophobes and racists from being however the fuck they like, and therefore YOU are not upholding true or absolute freedom by your definitions either. do you see this? you are being inconsistent in this.

The ACs have a primal need to be heard. They need to "sound off". Sometimes for attention. Other times to add valuable information.

Says the poster opening threads left and right and you do realize having a registered name a with an avatar is considered to be attention whoring pur sang right?

Oh, the irony.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 31228556


Really? My last thread was days ago.

And really, having an account and an avatar only means that you are invested in the site. So sue me. I love GLP.

If you don't then YOU DON'T BELONG HERE.

PISS OFF.
