... Am I the only one picturing The Situation say this? XD

You guys are great entertainment.

The problem is that we live in the real world where this doesn't always work. Do you know anyone in the oil or shipping business? How about the insurance business? You won't find a lot of support for removing patrols from the Persian Gulf, the Arabian Sea, or the South China Sea. And not only because of the Iranians and the Red Chinese. A substantial amount of the allies' work in those areas is against pirates and freebooters.

What exactly is a "parasite Nation"? Can you guide me to any relevant academic literature on this topic?

Needless to say, no US president or Congress will ever assent to such policies.

Kaputer: Rand Paul courts all kinds of people in his "big tent". Libertarians are typically pro-choice. Paul is not because he needs the Moral Majority to secure the base. His fake filibuster yesterday was a transparent and unnecessary ploy. Why not instead denounce those in his own party who voted for the various NSA procedures?

I know Sen. Paul, I have worked with him and his staff and I can tell you you are just wrong.
As to his pro life stand it's not a political motivation it is a moral conviction.

The Free Land of Cybernomix wrote:Oh geez. I can't believe I still have to explain this. Ok, so you know how I said published stats are chosen for a reason? They are cherry-picked to reflect the message they want to portray. Which is why you should know how stats are compiled so you can be unbiased.

When I say parasitic leeching, I mean that A takes resources from B. Whether you call it foreign aid or welfare or wtv other term, A takes from B.

With that in mind, your stats consider "foreign aid" as only monies received from world organizations. They don't account for all the money sent from philippino relatives abroad, back to the philippines (the money is given not traded). Regardless of what you call it, those transfer payments are 10% of the GDP.


In Dead Aid, your own cited academic expert, Dambisa Moyo, says exactly the opposite about money received from ex-patriots working abroad. She calls them "remittances" and not "transfer payments". Her reasoning is impeccable. Unlike ODA, remittances are voluntary, direct, widely distributed, and difficult to routinely divert from their intended destination. ODA, on the other hand, comprises up to 75% of some African nations' incoming capital. Moyo specifically and at length writes about alternatives to this "dead aid" and remittances are featured prominently as part of any potential solution.

This is the second time, on the same subject, that you have been shown to be factually incorrect.

I meant to write "expatriates" and not "ex-patriots", incidentally. The rest of the post is blemishless.

Paul's positions have dramatically changed since you worked with him and his staff: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/rand-pauls-delicate-balancing-act/2015/04/05/6e38af6c-d946-11e4-8103-fa84725dbf9d_story.html

As an example, there's this: “The First Amendment says keep government out of religion. It doesn’t say keep religion out of government,” he told a group of pastors at a private breakfast on Capitol Hill on March 26.

That's pretty tough to reconcile to his prior convictions.

Hahahahaha

And this is with absolute certainty that I can conclude you have absolutely 0 competence to even debate this subject.

Remittances are transfer payments XD

Correct. This doesn't change that they are parasites... not sure what your point is here.

It is one thing to claim I am incorrect, it is another thing to actually disprove me. I have invalidated every one of your points so far.

Got to be honest with you. I do not get a warm and fuzzy feeling from Rand Paul. He and I agree on a lot of things, but he's said some really off the wall things that make be question his grasp on reality.

You should question how many Wieners he has been eating, lately. It tends to be a necessary thing to gargle on when you want to win the race.

They need all the protein they can get!

Speaking of protein, did you see the Mitt Romney fight?? Cringeworthy is the only word to describe it.

Missed it. But it is for a good cause.
