Tell the truth about benefit claimants and the left shuts you down

Perkins says that the link between personality, employability and welfare dependency has been known about for years by academics — ‘It’s old hat, really’ — but until now it’s only been discussed behind closed doors. ‘It’s fear of the political-correctness brigade that has stopped my colleagues going public — quite sensibly, as it turns out,’ he says. ‘But I felt I owed it to the taxpayers who are funding the welfare state to publish these data.’

    I love the face on that little girl on the right. She is a beauty.

    The Rest of them , are not worth the powder to blow them to Hell.

      I think that picture might be from the English version, the original version of the tv series Shameless.

    Shutting down the truth or dissent has always been a trait of the Left, and it does not matter what the topic is. Express any disagreement with their narrative, and they will do whatever to shut you down including using violence. I agree with the article except for the term “McCarthyism”, because McCarthy was right. There were no unfounded witch hunts; in fact a good number of communists and their supporters go away. We are reaping the results today.

    • Billy Bob Thornton

      McCarthy was a self-serving politician and he played to those that wanted to act patriotic when nowadays there are no more communists and everyone in the West that is on the left is at most a neoliberal left winger like Mulcair so they have bought into social democracy and third way centrism. The old left died in 1989 to 1991 after the Fall of the Berlin Fall, which people on the right will just never let go. They want a boogeyman to wag their fingers at, but nowadays the useful enemy is Islam because it is to me the decline of the Western way of life due to Wall Street or whatever financial centre exists in each Western city. The fact is I have yet to see BCF or its supporters blame the decline on bankers, hedge fund managers, mortgage-backed securities people and those that were connected to the numerous financial scandals since 2008. It is obvious that the Liberals, NDP and the Conservatives all support similar economic policies and yet people on the populist right continuously call the NDP communists when communism is only in North Korea with Juche elements and even that is not true communism which can never exist. Even China never truly had communism which is a moneyless society, private property being banned and removed and public ownership of the means of production by workers and socialist economics. TPP is another huge giveaway to the fascists. Capitalism needs a reset and BCF is clearly not understanding these facts.

          Much nicer than I was.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Oh, Billy Bob, just fuck right off. Find some site where tards like you are actually welcome.

        • Billy Bob Thornton

          Everything by the right is overblown to the point where they should not be taken seriously. Much of what goes on on BCF is groupthink and regurgitating of ideas so it is an echo chamber of anger, bitterness and it is just a faction of the Republican party/Conservative party. It is the far-right elements. Of course, you also accept globalism which is selling the nation out by wanting the TPP, possible flat taxes, Israel first policies and more wars. Where did I get it wrong? Those are interventionist, economically global and selling the nation out and the TPP is anti-jobs program. Don’t forget Harper’s failed corporate tax cuts!

      • Shebel

        I blame the decline on bankers, wankers, hedge fund managers, mortgaged backed securities , and every one else involved with them including the Gov’t.
        Now what were you going to say about Islam?
        That it is a mere distraction—

        • Billy Bob Thornton

          Islam is not a distraction because we are being pitted so we cannot blame the current people in power.

          Don’t you see that you are buying into the narrative of major parties.

          That is why I come on here to warn people that if the West is going to collapse economically because of high debts, deficits and the fact that jobs will be near non-existent then the truth is we should be demanding a return to protectionist economics but only elect those that will end the wars and be about real foreign policy.

          To me, the right believes that Churchill and Thatcher are the basis of their ideology, including Reagan, and the truth is society is so much bigger than that. It is the same with the left and FDR and others. People need to look outside the normal left-right and be aware that the world is changing and that alternatives are out there.

          Islam to me was made to be the scapegoat to bring in police state measures and ISIS is a creation of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States. Everything the US touches turns to shit. That is what I believe. They want more and more nations to be under their control. If Libya, Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan didn’t convince you then you are living in a dream world. You are complaining about a first world issue when the West creates third world problems.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Islam is a distraction*

          • Shebel

            Well, you see…Billy Bob— I really don’t think you are as stupid as you pretend to be.
            And for me—- They made a big mistake with Islam , if I am to follow your narrative.
            They fucked-up big time.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            I know you are going to say they should have fought to win. The truth is these last 14 years were to serve the US agenda.

            Islam I guess is not perfect but what religion is but what is the overall goal to kill all 1.6 billion members?

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Not sure what you mean by your first sentence because I am smart based on the fact that I realize the whole purpose of staying in power is to play for factions, and you should know that. It is the same with calling anyone that is not conservative/populist conservative a traitor since they have a different point of view. Those comments don’t phase me because they come from a place of partisanship, so it is obvious that it is just playing around and such people not being serious. These wars are about serving special interests, and parties serve special interest groups to build coalitions. As for Islam, I want unification of the world among all nations, and I want humanity to live on in not just 193 nations but hopefully hundreds of nations so people can declare sovereignty and be truly free. Wrecking things is a lot easier than building up nations and bringing people together. Islam is being perverted by hired people and the odd radical person, but that is over-generalizing, just like the comments about 1400 year war with Islam, which has been stated to lie about Islam.

          • Shebel

            Slow down -Billy Bob— I don’t argu with much of what you say– except for Islam.
            I don’t want to become a fucking Muslim .
            Their ultimate goal is to kill me because I am not Muslim.

        • Billy Bob Thornton

          And yes people cling to their ideology because they feel that they will benefit from it and why factions exist in society, not only to keep us divided, but to bring about the next phases of capitalism which depends on imperialism and new movements. The question is why do people seem to not understand that war is business? Why do people forget that special interests are central to capitalism?

  • Shebel

    So…Billy Bob— Truth be told— I don’t think it matters very much whom becomes President of the USA . Like you say —
    The dye is cast.

    Agenda 21 is real and we are All fucked. OK– I dig it. Cool.

    I got one question –actually it is two.

    Why the fuck is everyone being harassed to support Islam ?

    Why the fuck does everybody, feel so Free , to denigrate the Jews?
