Nihilists Out in Force at G-20 Protests

Hmm, I think I'll dedicate this post to the folks at the American Nihilist shithole - and please pardon my French ... sometimes there's just no good word substitutes! Check out (O)CT(O)PUS, for example, "BILLIONAIRES FOR WEALTH CARE: IF YOU CAN’T BEAT ‘EM, JOIN ‘EM." These folks hate America.

But hey, help is on the way. It turns out that the People's Cube has a great post up on this week's anti-globalization protests, "
Dude! G20 Riots In Pittsburgh." Great images and photos. Plus, "Down With Capitalism!!!" And the narrator's got this red rooster to assist the chronicle of events:

Yep, awesome stuff! And there's lots more like this at American Nihilist! See, "MATTERS OF LIFE AND DEATH IN AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE":

In short, the most expensive healthcare system in the world has not made us healthy, wealthy, or wise. To maximize earnings, private insurers “cherry pick” the most profitable subscribers, reject high-risk applicants, eliminate those with “pre-existing” conditions, and limit benefits. One inevitable consequence of a profit-driven system is a large pool of “medically uninsurable” applicants who are denied access to affordable, quality healthcare.

Another consequence are high premium costs that partition our people into ‘haves’ and ‘have nots.’ An estimated 47 million people lack healthcare coverage, and medical debts will drive a million people each year into bankruptcy ....

Real people in the real Universe have no lobbyists, no PR funds, no advocate to argue their case, and that is how the interests of America’s well-healed healthcare cartels win every time.
That's right!! People just like this - "real people in the real universe" - are out in force this week in Pittsburgh. Nihilists of the world unite!

Pretty excitable there, professor.

But you're trying to sell a link that just doesn't seem to exist outside of your own mind.

No one from AmNi went to or posted in support of any G-20 protests or protesters. To the best of my knowledge, we're all capitalists, here. (Which is not to say that some corporations and industries can't improve the way they do business... But we expect most of 'em to keep doing business, at least until somethin' better comes along. (I don't mourn the buggy manufacturers and eight track tape makers losing their livelihood because their product became obsolete. It's the way of the world. And should a better, more efficient model change the way we receive & pay for health care, leaving the insurance companies out in the cold, I won't mourn them, either.)

Thanks for the links, though. We always appreciate it when you help us show other readers how nakedly unprincipled you are.

Partisan hate over reasoned discourse and debate. We expect nothing less.

Uh huh. All capitalist. Right!
