Soylent Pink. There really are no limits to how far these m**f** will abuse the populace. Anyone who thinks this is "the free market" is out of their flippin' gourd. It was not until USDA protection was secured that the company responsible for this pink shit - "Beef" Products Inc. - dared to start selling it for human consumption.

If - as they claim - it's "just beef", why is limit it to 15%? What's wrong with 100%? The foul odor of ammonia wafting off your hamburgers might be a bit of a giveaway.

And these assholes intentionally confuse the statistical idea of inevitable contaminants in the ppm or ppb with 15% dilution of food with toxins. There is a clear distinction. Ammonia is toxic.

I read one article that said a prison kitchen alerted the USDA because they thought the beef from BPI was foul or poisonous because of the powerful ammonia odor coming off it. What irks me about the American attitude about prisoners is this smug indifference to the plight of innocents who are falsely imprisoned. We know there are innocents in prison because humans are not infallible. Yet we feed them poison not fit for animal consumption because, well, after all, they're criminals!

There's one thing I don't understand about the post-Fukushima backlash. There's an earthquake, and suddenly everyone is like "Oh noes, nuclear energy is dangerous!". Haven't they understood that there was a fricking earthquake? Why does that make nuclear plants unsafe that aren't on top of fault zones? Is this just a convenient excuse, or what?

Or that the Fukushima plants failed for a very specific reason:  The loss of electricity from shutting down the reactors and the destruction of the backup generators lead to a loss of coolant circulation.  Those plants were something like 40 years old, and were planned for decommissioning.  Newer designs don't require electricity to feed water into the cores, and can be cooled via gravity feed, basically rendering the Fukushima scenerio impossible.

F4M, do you even read LRC? Pardon me, but the consistency of the ignorance you display on the subjects you discuss honestly astounds me. It's as if you were raised in Soviet Russia, except Soviet Russia is constantly touting anarcho-primitivist propaganda.

I blame F4M's troubles to a strong tendancy towards cofirmation bias, and the abundance of primitivist stuff on the web.  Anyone can immerse themselves in a self-confirming information bubble with the amount of content on the internet.

When are we going to reach the consensus to just completely ignore the guy?  Even when you call him out on stuff he never answers your questions (which he's done to JJ and I).  He's hell bent that the way of life that's provided him with everything he has is evil and collectivist, and would rather resort back to the stone age.  I'm surprised he's stayed around on this forum for so long.

Speaking of George4Title videos, I love this recent video where he has is poor, poor friend test a pepper spray "neutralizer":

Guess what doesn't get neutralized.

Highlights can be found at 5:25 where the inventor informs us that Agent Orange is used in CS gas training, and at 8:30 when the subject expresses his opinion on how well the product is working.

This is just awesome - why a false proposition implies any proposition (if 1 = 0, then I am the Pope).

Suppose 1 = 0.  Then adding 1 to both sides, we obtain 2 = 1.  Now consider the set containing me and the Pope.  This set has exactly 2 members, but 2 = 1, so it has only 1 member.  Therefore, I am the Pope.

George is the moron who made, uploaded, and is featured in the latest POS video that YOU uploaded, Einstein.

And yes, please, listen to Clayton (and everyone else).  Just stop posting in here.  It would appear that virtually everyone here would appreciate it if you did that.

1)  You're the one who posted his video, and you're asking me who he is?

2)  Because you obviously have a problem with reading and comprehension, I never said George was a POS.  I said his video (which you of course posted) is a POS.  But since you bring it up, George is a POS too.

3) Before you display your ignorance even further, George is a POS because he is an idiot lying douchebag attention whore who helped defraud people out of their money, as shown here.

Anyway, does someone know of any other (not dead) forums debating about freedom and anarchy?

I know only few, including mises, freedomain radio (boring), and anti-state.org (practically dead forum)?

There is ronpaul forum and some leftist forums, but is there any market anarchist forum out there with more than 5 people trolling each other?
