Pragmatism

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

The Definition

prag·ma·tism/ˈpragməˌtizəm/
Noun:

A pragmatic attitude or policy: “ideology was tempered with pragmatism”.
An approach that assesses the truth of meaning of theories or beliefs in terms of the success of their practical application.

Pragmatism is a sensible realization of the way things are and working with the realistic conditions to achieve goals.

Rarely does someone get all the cake and to eat it too. In order to achieve a goal, points that are peripheral to the goal must be sacrificed.

For instance “Stalinism” in America is neither an achievable nor desirable goal. It would blow away the current infrastructure and “start from scratch” (this was reasonable in Russia in 1917, not in America today) and Stalin’s system would not have the “speed” to keep up with a modern economy. That said, Stalinism was the logical pragmatic application of socialism to the Russian question. I am a Stalinist but not an imperial Stalinist.

Socialism in America will need a centralized cadre of professional revolutionaries as always (not a “mass movement”), but it will also be built on top of the culture and infrastructure that currently exists in America. If socialism occurs in America, it will be a sort of market socialism with revolutionaries engaged in business management and economic planning as opposed to a command economy from “top to bottom.” Such a command economy is not pragmatic or realistic from the perspective of dialectical materialism.

It’s 2012: Check your game

Original Song Lyrics

[chorus]
It’s 2012 players check your game
Make sure them net clowns respect your name
Keep keyloggers at close reach cocked and ready
Java drive bys will catch you slipping, rock ya steady
Watch your back with the posters that you feel is real
The staff from your crew, yeah them the ones that do you
The suckas that got the player hater venom
I want to out their identities and lay some slugs up in em

[King T]
When they need work
They call the md5 expert
Smashing a hash that users is burnt
Looking flossy living costly
away from the crust, out of state
They gots to break passwords, for sho
I needs mo’ sign ups for the data sto’ (store)
logins sets blow when I’m sipping the mo’
Freebasin on lyrics, trying to build a blog
like fade did
so I can avoid that ho alison when she posts naked with her fake kid…

[Ice-T]
True, huff the aerosol `kick back and let the players represent
kane is the true boss game- his soldiers take aim
These sucka gonnabe’s red
Nigga please – ur rep is dead not green
I’ll attack internet hoes on the downlow with page rank thats obscene
want to rule the radio shows, bet you wish you could (man against time)
And try to steal Pennsylvania out my ass like sponges
I run this.
You can’t fuck with fmp yo
You forums want to grow
When I’m on the blogs I play solo
traffic flow
One track mind serial killer
Quick to break a traitor a snitch bitch?
I’ll drill ya (ixabert)
Bentley ballin’ bastard
No hustler faster
Game maker
I hack a ‘white’ bitch and break her (starr, if she’s white)

[King T]
but i fight chronic trolling using my brain
for soothing my pain, I’m true to the game
I got my mind made I gotta get that snitch motherfucker
Set it up so my net enemies suffer
The fat fucker (overwatch)
The fag drummer (greg johnson, he drums it up the ass)
- what’s your choice?
video with a picture and his voice
when he’s moist (in the ass)
I’m throwing up the W
Bringing trouble to
Those online
Metal Gear aka ice(man)

[Chorus:]
[Ice-T]
But il ragno that’s trippin’ and that ain’t my sport
you’d rather die of cancer in my crib and flip the Robb report
And set your wife on the streets
Bump her feet
Cause when you’re writing a troll post
Can’t nobody compete
Imagine this:
my page rank at your finger tips
Imagine this:
any sockpuppet to twist
Imagine this:
traffic that’s a lot for a single fish
Ha – that shit wouldn’t nice man
But your name ain’t “iceman” – kid… (iceman = metal gear)
I’ll screw up the login form on – rock you softly
How you gonna step to me kid? You grew up off me
posts, rhymes, vidoes and flame wars
So many busters tryin to copy that it’s disgusting to the core…

[King T]
But this will be a classic
Many facets to get that pass-hacked
The gas huffing Don, call me King Tragic
Watch me code the magic
php/mysql. that old habit – full of havoc
And shays will upload the mix when its static
People play
Just to have me stay
And say a curse
I’ll praise the devil unrehearsed
Then I burst
I mean I bust
From all angles
Guarunteed banning from a forum; never fails.

[Ice-T]
Yo T, I really must admit I’m the best
Master K does some other shit PC’s in the head rests
Never wear no anti-virus cuz I got mad love
I catch respect when other niggas catch bugs
1, 2 I load shit to destroy u
defeat for the annoying ones
Somebody’s gotta do’em
p-phags screw ‘em
Faggot’s wish they had my whole crib bugged
Mad tapps on the wires cause I deal with the thugs
Drugs? never
No, the K is too clever
I’m over east
Checkin G’s
Nigga please
Ballin’ since fmp – yeah baby
Blew up with besoshvilli
Now you niggas hate me
You can’t see me motherfucker your focus is off
You can’t be me motherfucker, you’re fake and you’re soft
Too many niggas live a bullshit lifestyle – romancing
Misogynistic. I was pissing on the women while them kids was flirting and dancing
Overwatch – so why the wack forum ain’t dead?
Probably because my aim is over nigga’s heads.
Philadelphia – Lancaster – Allentown, I play eastern Pennsylvania and bounce
They got a benz but live in a midwestern house…

[Chorus]
[King T]
To all my G’s rock on
get your headphones on – when you hear it
The forbidden metal gear spirit
net enemies fear it
Get you right up close near it
Possessed by the 123 spirit
big d set the limit
And cowards won’t visit fmp – across this line
suicide – and niggas won’t cross this nine
in your mouth
man against time talks like a nigga down south
what the fuck this really all about? man..
I’m coming out
front and back, 2007 i left the forums to roam
All you fake G’s stay home
Leave that shit alone
kane123 back on the throne
And that nigga on the mic – straight gone
Cra-zy, why’all crust circlers want to know the real deal?
I’ll teach you and smack you in your grill
Good websites (+), most circle jerk forums are gimmicks (-)
This website will put you in the mix – biatch…

Richard Kuklinski Says “Merry Christmas”

The Book and the Cover

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

Liberal capitalists push the idea of individualism and condemn the idea of dividing people in a way that inhibits globalization. If “sexism,” “racism,” “nationalism” or other “isms” are bad for business, they are condemned.

Yet even though Corporate culture trumpets the merits of individualism, in my experience, Corporations still judge books by covers.

It’s not your skills or potential, it’s your experience.
It’s not your loyalty, it’s your work history.
It’s not your interview, it’s the results returned from your background check.
It’s not a good background check, it’s a google search.
It’s not you, it’s your network and who you know.
It’s not what you know, it’s how you look on paper.

You get my drift? I am sure you do.

Corporate culture pushes the idea of not judging the book by a cover when it is convenient. However during other periods of history, the controllers of economic activity (not necessarily Corporations) have used other propaganda to perpetuate institutions such as slavery to the extent it fits the given mode of production. Yet corporations do judge people by things that are very unrelated to their qualifications for the job. They just don’t do it for the same reason as a “racist” or “sexist.”

In fact, corporations are willing to sometimes fill quotas by ethnicity simply for political / public relations reasons. That may not be racism against Blacks, but it is still racial.

Congress – Least Productive Year

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Despite the lagging employment recovery of the recession, Congress has been less productive this year than any other according to Laura Litvan. It is “free market” politics. The internal contradictions that plague capitalism in no doubt find parallels in the Government which sets the legislation and power structure to maintain those contradictions.

Congress is ending what may be its least productive year on record after government shutdown threats, the collapse of debt-reduction talks and little action to fix the worst U.S. economy since the Great Depression.

Just 62 bills were signed into law through November this year, meaning that 2011 may fall short of the 88 laws enacted in 1995, the lowest number since the Congressional Record began keeping an annual tally in 1947. In 1995, as in this year, a new House Republican majority fought a Democratic president’s agenda.

This year’s partisan battles brought the U.S. to the brink of a government shutdown four times, caused a two-week furlough of Federal Aviation Administration workers and led Standard & Poor’s to lower the nation’s credit rating after it said lawmakers didn’t do enough to reduce the federal deficit.

“It’s been one of the worst Congresses in modern history,” said Representative Jim Cooper, a Tennessee Democrat. “We have failed to meet our minimum standards of competency and endangered America’s credit rating. We have failed to pass key legislation on time. And there is very little hope for improved behavior.”

Voter approval ratings for Congress are at record lows. Republicans, ranked lower than Democrats, insist both parties are to blame.

“People have a right to be frustrated and disappointed, so next year may be a good year for challengers,” said Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona, the No. 2 Senate Republican leader.

Risks to Economy

The inaction by Congress poses risks to the economy, said Ed Yardeni, president of Yardeni Research Inc. in New York. While the unemployment rate hovered around 9 percent most of the year, he said Congress did little to stimulate job growth. Lawmakers also were unwilling to make deep budget cuts or raise taxes to rein in the deficit.

“Usually gridlock is seen as a good thing from the stock market’s perspective, but clearly the out-of-control federal deficit needs to be addressed and there is no political will to do it,” Yardeni said.

S&P, in its ratings downgrade, said the government is becoming “less stable, less effective and less predictable.” Even so, the government’s borrowing costs fell to record lows as Treasuries rallied.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note fell from 2.56 percent on Aug. 5 to below 1.72 percent on Sept. 22. The yield on the 10-year note was 1.84 percent at 2:35 p.m. New York time today.

Voters Critical

The public is less sanguine. Seventy-six percent of registered voters in a Nov. 28-Dec. 1 Gallup Poll said most members of Congress don’t deserve to be re-elected, the highest percentage in the 19 years Gallup has asked that question.

A Dec. 7-11 Pew Research Center poll found 40 percent of adults blame Republican leaders for a “do-nothing” Congress, while 23 percent blame Democrats.

“It’s more likely that Republicans will be hit harder than Democrats,” said David Rohde, a political scientist at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.

In a year dominated by budget clashes, Congress passed a few significant measures.

Congress approved free-trade agreements with South Korea, Colombia and Panama. The South Korea deal was the biggest since 1993’s North American Free-Trade Agreement.

Patent Overhaul

Congress overhauled the patent system, long sought by companies such as International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) and Microsoft Corp (MSFT), and extended the USA Patriot Act until 2015, providing law enforcement continued power to track suspected terrorists.

Such output pales compared with 2010, when Congress approved a health-care overhaul, the biggest rewrite of Wall Street rules since the Great Depression, a nuclear arms reduction treaty with Russia and ended a ban against openly gay men and women serving in the military.

This year’s trade and patent bills, while important, are sideshows in the broader economic context, said Ross Baker, a professor of political science at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

“Those are not insignificant things, but none of them get to the meat of the economic crisis,” Baker said.

Most of President Barack Obama’s $447 billion job-creation agenda was opposed by Republicans and some Democrats who rejected his proposed new spending and tax increases on the wealthy to help pay for it.

Tax Credits

Congress approved tax credits for companies that hire unemployed veterans and canceled a requirement that federal, state and local governments begin withholding 3 percent of payments to contractors in 2013. This week, lawmakers are working to extend a payroll-tax cut for workers through 2012.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a Virginia Republican, said a “fundamental divide” with Obama and a Democrat- controlled Senate stymied House Republicans, who sought to repeal the president’s health-care overhaul and create a Medicare voucher system.

House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio heralded a shift toward cutting the size of government after Republicans forced $38.5 billion in budget cuts this year and Congress agreed in August to reduce deficits by $2.4 trillion over a decade.

Social Security ‘Conversation’

“For the first time in my 21 years here there has been a serious conversation about dealing with the entitlement programs” such as Social Security and Medicare, Boehner said at a Dec. 14 breakfast sponsored by Politico.com, a political news web site. “We are talking about real change,” he said, adding that he wasn’t surprised the public has a low opinion of Congress.

Democratic leaders see it differently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, told reporters today it was a “year of missed opportunities and made-up crises.”

The nation has “been engrossed in a year of manufactured crises, with multiple threats of a government shutdown and an increase of uncertainty for business and in our markets as a result of the debt ceiling being held hostage,” said Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland.

Independent analysts say that on the matter that dominated — deficit reduction — the results are murky.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said the $38.5 billion in spending cuts in this year’s budget, agreed in April to avert a government shutdown, cuts the deficit by just $352 million this year, with most savings coming later. Some money cut from programs wouldn’t have been spent anyway, so it wouldn’t do as much to curb a $1.3 trillion deficit, the CBO said.

Automatic Spending Cuts

The debt-reduction measure adopted in August relies on automatic spending cuts for about half of its $2.4 trillion in savings over a decade. A congressional supercommittee’s inability to agree on at least $1.2 trillion in cuts kicks the debate over specifics into next year. To achieve the rest of the deficit reduction, lawmakers must stick with annual caps on spending for a decade.

Based on experience, Congress won’t stick with the deficit- reduction deal for more than a few years, said Stan Collender, managing director of Qorvis Communications in Washington and a former House and Senate budget committee aide.

“Budget deals are always modified, seemingly in seconds after they’re enacted,” he said.

The Juche Spirit Marches On!

Monday, December 19th, 2011

The untimely passing of Kim Jong Il was a tragic loss for the Korean nation. The beloved leader of the DPRK was a triumphant symbol of resistance to Western imperialism and hegemony, and his legacy will forever be emblazoned in the hearts of his people and his admirers across the world. Kim, like Col. Gadaffi, was truly an island of virtue standing firm in a vast sea of degeneracy.

Free Media Productions extends its deepest condolences to the Korean people on this tragic day. “Thank You” Kim Jong Il for your glorious contributions to humanity.

Kim Jong Il – Model Figure

Monday, December 19th, 2011

We may write more on this in the future. We feel it is necessarily to at least leave a comment.

Free Media Productions expresses condolences and gratitude for the heroic leader and his Juche Philosophy (see this). A positive force for class struggle and independence.

A sane political philosophy. A man who’s merits are not simply being defamed by the bourgeois media, but who’s merits extend to good political philosophy (unlike some other figures who are resisting imperialism but philosophically unsound).

The Phora is Back

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

The Phora has returned to the internet after disappearing around the year 2007. The true original members have decided that they want to remake the community and boot out the vnners and opportunists who hijacked it and advanced their own agendas. Archive.org shows that the phora was very different before it was hijacked by people who advanced a self-serving agenda that violated the original rules of the forum. This lead to the phora being hacked (with “ixabert’s” collaboration and “overwatch’s” and “azimuth’s” and “thomas777′s” and “starr’s” triggering, incompetence and provocation) and then the community faded off the internet.

Well thephora.co is back. It has not been active for a few years and that is why there are no posters.
