A Real News Rewind

With the recent talk of country politics in another thread I thought I’d re-post this article from the obviously communist organization because they do not accept government subsidies or money from corporate advertisers…gasp!

BABONES: Oh, right. Australia had no recession. There was not a single quarter in which GDP declined in Australia. There was a–you know, the recession just didn’t happen…"

Bullshit, I fucking lived through it. The reason it was not as bad as elsewhere was due to John Howard accruing a massive budget surplus and tax cuts. Don’t fall for this crap from a tenured leftist.

BABONES: …if you raise the minimum wage, people make more money. That’s the first thing that’s not equal. As people make more money, they spend more, they pay more in taxes. The entire character of the economy changes."

More bullshit. If you raise the minimum wage the price of goods and services increases so people’s purchasing power decreases.

Notable guests on the real news:

Noam Chomsky(lunatic anarchist, pathological liar, academic fraud and genocide apologist)

Danny Glover(Communist Party member, deranged leftist, third rate actor)

Ron Paul(radical libertarian, mental patient, cult leader)

Dennis Kucinich(hardcore socialist, isolationist, most left-wing member of Congress)

Edward Herman(Chomsky’s accomplice)

Howard Zinn(hardcore Communist and author of the infamous work of historical revisionism [i]A People’s History of the United States)

Thx Zep :slight_smile:

Just let it go

Where is your proof that if wages are raised it equals less purchasing power?

Is the converse also true?

Where and how often has Chompsky been shown to be a liar? Where has he been shown to be apologetic for genocide?I have seen him win every debate he has been in. I’ve seen him make William F. Buckley Jr. look like the anti-freedom phony he was.

Of course Zinn is a revisionist. He flies in the face of the jingoist policies you prescribe to. If it isn’t red, white and blue it can’t be true. Apple pie, Chevrolet and guns wooo-hooo!!! The U.S. is always the benevolent good guy or it must be a communist plot.

Was deregulation of the financial market a good thing?

It’s basic economics. Higher wages = higher cost of producing goods and services = goods and services cost more to purchase.

Yes. Less wages = goods and services cost less to produce = goods and services cost less to purchase.

Everywhere and all the time. Here are a few classics from the Chumpsky:

The Lie: “in comparison to the conditions imposed by US tyranny and violence, East Europe under Russian rule was practically a paradise.”

The Truth: The communists murdered over 4 million people in Ukraine; 360,000 in Romania; 200,000 in Hungary; 185,000 in East Germany;5 180,000 in Yugoslavia;6 150,000 in Poland; 100,000 in Lithuania; at least 69,000 in Belarus;9 30,000-40,000 in Bulgaria; 30,000 in Estonia; 20,000 in Czechoslovakia; 15,000 in Latvia; and 5,000 in Albania. Other atrocities included the murder of over 500,000 POWs in Soviet captivity and the mass rape of at least 2 million women by the Red Army.

The Lie: “the evacuation of Phnom Penh [by the Khmer Rouge], widely denounced at
the time and since for its undoubted brutality, may actually have saved many lives.”

The Truth: At least 30,000 very young children died as a direct result of the Khmer Rouge evacuation of Phnom Penh. In total, at least 870,000 men, women and children from Phnom Penh died under the Khmer Rouge dictatorship.

The Lie: “Do we celebrate Pearl Harbor Day every year? It’s well understood that the Japanese attack on the colonial outposts of the United States, England, and Holland was in some respects highly beneficial to the people of Asia. It was a major factor in driving the British out of India, which saved maybe tens of millions of lives. It drove the Dutch out of Indonesia.”

The Truth: Far from being “highly beneficial to the people of Asia,” Imperial Japan killed 10 million Asians between Pearl Harbor and V-J Day. Its impact on India included the Bengal famine, which claimed 1.5 million lives. The invasion of Indonesia left 4 million dead.

^^ 82 pages of Chumpsky lies and denying genocide. I’d rather not get into a discussion about it because it makes me feel literally sick to know that people follow this piece of shit.

See above.

Okay whatever you say fella. As I said I don’t really want to get into a discussion on history with someone who supports genocide apologists and hardcore Communists.

America Vs. Australia

I’ve completely changed my mind, let’s model our economy after Australia’s. Let’s start with deregulation of the financial sector and regulatory transparency. Then we’ll talk about minimum wage. [/quote]
