Quote :
"“Yes, I am opposed to Woman Suffrage, believing as I do that it is unscriptural, injurious to women, hurtful to men, damaging to children, unfriendly to the home and harmful to the State. At best it is an unnecessary and dangerous experiment and in the South it is especially undesirable in view of the race question, which it would surely complicate further.”

- Warren A. Candler, Bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church South (1919)"


Quote :
""I believe that employing children in coal mines is perfectly consistent with good health. They earn good wages. Working on the night shift does no harm, the air and ventilation are the same at one period as at another. I have never heard of boys injuring themselves down pits from the nature of work, only by accidents. I do not think any change in the hours of work is necessary for children. I would not object to a law preventing children from working before ten years old but would rather leave it to the manager to accept or refuse them. Any such law would be unfair on parents with large families... I do not think that working in the pit means that boys are incapable of having lessons after a day's work. Most coal mines could not carry on without the labours of young boys."

- Henry Morton (1842)"


Quote :
"The new [Confederate] Constitution has put at rest forever all the agitating questions relating to our peculiar institutions—African slavery as it exists among us—the proper status of the negro in our form of civilization. This was the immediate cause of the late rupture and present revolution"

- Confederate Vice President Alexander Stephens 1861"


Quote :
"Our new Government is founded upon exactly the opposite ideas; its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition."

- Confederate Vice President Alexander Stephens 1861"


Quote :
"“There is a conspiracy afoot to destroy the South. The members of this conspiracy are of various backgrounds. Their basic aim, knowingly or unknowingly, is to destroy the social and cultural life of the South and the white race by amalgamation of the races.

Component elements of this conspiracy to destroy the South are the Communist Party, the NAACP, the United Nations, the National Council of Churches, the leadership in many denominations of the Christian Church, elements of the TV networks, elements of the movie industry, a number of leading magazines with nationwide circulation, elements in the Republican and Democratic Parties, and, to a large extent, the Press … Large foundations reportedly are putting large sums of money into the integration program all over the country.

Many others are pushing integration: The YMCA, religious liberals, various dubbed dogooders, etc., and many sincere and good ministers of the Gospel. They have succumbed to and been traduced by the integration propaganda of the Communist Party, the NAACP, and various liberal and unorthodox theologians bleating their shibboleths of ‘Justice’ and ‘Freedom.’

In the interest of their unnatural religious and social philosophy, they are working to destroy the races that God has created, crying ‘oneworld brotherhood’ and ‘racial equality,’ neither of which conceptions have any substantiation whatsoever in the Scripture or in the study of mankind anthropology, psychology, etc.

… The Supreme Court has violated, in my opinion, … the Constitution which they have sworn to uphold, and they should be impeached. Strong sentiment is arising all over our nation to restrict the Court; but when you have such a Court as the one we have now, the only practical remedy is to kick them out and put new men in … This conspiracy to effect the submersion of the white race under a Negro society must not prevail.

We are forced to take a stand.”

- Rev. James P. Dees, Rector of Trinity Episcopal Church, Conspiracy Is Afoot to Destroy the Social and Cultural Life of the South, The Southern Conservative (Statesville, North Carolina, 1958?)"


Quote :
""If Medicare passes into law, the consequences will be dire beyond imagining," Reagan said. If opponents failed to scuttle it, he warned, "One of these days you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children, and our children’s children, what it once was like in America when men were free.""


Quote :
""Never in the history of the world has any measure [social security] been brought here so insidiously designed as to prevent business recovery, to enslave workers and to prevent any possibility of the employers providing work for the people"

- Rep. John Taber (R-NY)."


Quote :
"Daniel Reed, a Republican representative from New York, predicted that with Social Security, Americans would come to feel “the lash of the dictator.” Senator Daniel Hastings, a Delaware Republican, declared that Social Security would “end the progress of a great country.”"


Quote :
"Rep. James W. Wadsworth (R-NY) cautioned that passage of Social Security would open the door to a government power "so vast, so powerful as to threaten the integrity of our institutions and to pull the pillars of the temple down upon the heads of our descendants.""


Quote :
"“Yes, the Bible is a discriminating Book, both as to race and creed. Beware of the cliche “no discrimination.” Unless, of course, you want to join hands with international schemers in destroying the Christian heritage which guarantees your freedom.

The race of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph now the kindred AngloSaxonCeltic Christian peoples of the United States, the British Company of Nations, and Western Europe cannot commit to other races the supreme place which God has assigned to that race alone.

The exalted position of the Bible’s Covenant Race carries with it worldwide moral and spiritual responsibilities, which no other race has the Godgiven ability to perform. This Divine commission demands of us the spirit of humility and love.”

- C.R. Dickey, The Bible and Segregation, 1958"

"“In case we have forgotten, because we keep hearing that 2014 has been the warmest year on record, I ask the chair, do you know what this is,” Inhofe said to Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), who was presiding over the Senate’s debate, as he removed the snowball from a plastic bag.

“It’s a snowball. And it’s just from outside here. So it’s very, very cold out. Very unseasonable.”"

This thread would have been more aptly titled "Quotes from the Wrong Side of History according to Synapse." Because you've had something kinda snarky to say about nearly every contribution.

Anyway, here's mine:

They didn't go up more. Gotta love the completely brain dead victory lap Obamacare opponents are doing this morning. Guess what, premiums are exactly where the CBO predicted they'd be 6 years ago. The only difference is instead of going up by roughly the same amount each year, they went up slower than expected for the last 3 years and then are correcting to the expected level in one big jump this year. Also, this only applies to exchange plans, where most people are getting subsidies and will continue paying premiums under $100/mo. For most Americans, including people getting insurance through their employers, premiums are still growing at historically low levels. Continue ignoring facts though, it got you Donald Trump.

Are these the same CBO estimates you were disregarding in the PBO credibility thread? So only the CBO estimates that can somehow be distorted to fit your narrative that ACA is thriving can be believed?

The CBO projection you posted was related to employer sponsored coverage, and how it was supposed to drop significantly. That did not happen, at all. Do you have some masochistic fetish about being wrong all the time?

Its not the fact that the architect of the ACA called the hacks of the world "stupid".

It's that the Hacks of the world still defend an unconstitutional fine that has done the opposite of its intention.

It's like trying to explain to a North Korean that dear leader isn't so great.

You mean the DESTROY THE POINT OF HAVING INSURANCE, and the reason costs were affordable to healthy people? I wonder if Obama could do the same thing with home insurance, that way I can just buy it after an earthquake and be covered. Makes sense

And we get to the heart of why people like ^ don't like Obamacare: redistribution of wealth from middle to upper class white folks to poor brown people. They see that the overwhelming majority of people getting the Medicaid expansion or subsidies from the exchanges are racial minorities, and proceed to seethe with rage.

Praising a failed policy is a difficult feat even for the most delusional of hacks, as we can see in this case, adequate objective criticism yields the most desperate retort of the hack: "agree with me or you're racist".

We know the ACA is a failure, he knows the ACA is a failure, but a hack's mind cannot permit a reality that clashes with partisian talking points. The mental gymnastics that result from this conflict are a sight to see..

Shrike provides us with a fascinating glimpse into the mind of a partisian hack.

Yup, a failed policy that insured 25 million people, stopped the insurance companies from engaging in anti-consumer practices, and curbed the growth of health care costs. I have to say though, it pleases me that people like you are still unwilling to admit the folly of your ways. It tells me that 4 years from now, you'll nominate another unelectable buffoon who President Hillary Clinton will easily defeat.
