Talking to the Animals

Peter Schiff attempts to explain the fundamentals of economic reality to the hebephrenic collectivist trash infesting Zuccotti Park and even the cretinous clown Cornel West:

Schiff would be better off explaining calculus to squirrels.

    Don’t address the issue, just revise the question and give your own version of reality.

    So’s here’s how to debate if you’re a liberal:

    Immediately sling out every possible topic you can think of right out of the gate. While your opponent is trying to select one thing to answer for you, talk over top of him and hit him quick with another 2 or 3 topics.

    Be sure to hit and run on every topic. Your opponent should not be able to spend more than 4 seconds on any one of your talking points.

    Look down and keep laughing while you try to find something really distorted to say.

    Throw out some propaganda, mix it in with a convoluted interpretation of history -its hard as hell for your opponent to correct everything and if he focuses on something, talk over him -fast and loud.


    Speak louder as befits your lowly birthright and to show that you’re a man of the street. Possibly the gutter.

    Use the word, brotha. Maybe your opponent will go easier on you.

    Ridicule with snark, smirking and head shaking. Talk louder and do some finger pointing.

    Remember if your opponent pauses or stutters, you win.

    Start laughing again like a drunken hyena. But show that you are trying to recover and then DO NOT let him finish a sentence.

    Throw out another non-contingent, irrelvant subject and this time keep your rap constant; don’t stop talking and if you’re at a lack for an immediate thought, just start repeating: “no .. no .. no”. Real loud and in a condescending fashion.

    Interrupt. Start up with another topic. The audience has no depth or education about the issue at hand, so why should you?

    Try to convince the audience that your opponent is really stupid but that you’re kind enough to offer a sit down with him over coffee. This shows that your level of comprehension is superior but complicated, while your opponent is misguided and maybe even a racist.

    Mention cognac to insure people understand that you have gotten your own self some class.

    Do some revisionist history; throw out a couple of years and historical events as non-sequiturs so its hard for your opponent to follow, and then go to another non-sequitur while he tries to get things back on track.

    Laugh Quickly. Talk fast. Use personal opinion and emotion.

    Finally, be cool. Be black. Be larger than life and take advantage of your “earthiness”. Don’t actually address any topic from his perspective….make sure he addresses all your points and if he starts getting to a solution, throw out another 3-4 points for him to address. Keep it superficial.

    Depth of understanding can be a real enemy if the conversation goes on for too long, so be sure as time goes on, that your points are even more disjointed so that it takes him longer and longer to get things back on track.

    Interrupt. Wave your hands around. Laugh. Obfuscate. And run down the clock. Keep it light; laugh at him, not with him.

    Finally, when there is no semblance of an organized structure or theme, time is finally running out, dismiss your opponent in as much as a piss-regal manner as you can muster

    – and as always,

    …always be sure

    …that you have ….

    the Last Word.

    How do we deal with social justice?
    Treat everyone as a potential customer.

  11. Ghost of FA Hayak says:

    There are human values that are not reduceable to market price, their is precious human life that’s not reduceable to market calculation,
    Let’s right the wrong for poor Cornell

    There are human values that ARE reduceable to GOVERNMENT coercion.
    There is precious human life that IS reduceable to GOVERNMENT calculations
    Better ?
    You know, maybe the protesters are correct on one point.
    Perhaps tuition at Princeton SHOULD be free.

  12. Sam Adams says:

    “explaining calculus to squirrels” is far more productive that trying to explain basic economics to liberals.

    1. Squirrels can eat and pack nuts in their cheeks while appearing to listen. Thus they are doing something productive with their time, whereas liberals simply interrupt with their oft-told labor union inspired responses.

    2. Squirrels listen politely, until they see that there is nothing left for them to eat. They then go about their business, knowing that if they don’t gather nuts while the weather is still good, no government squirrel feeder is going to stop buy in the dead of winter to bail them out.

    3. Squirrels aren’t confused over social justice. Fast squirrels get the nuts. slow, lazy squirrels help keep other animals alive when they have to go our foraging for food in the winter.

    4. Squirrels know that other squirrels stopping by and demanding that they share their store of nuts is not, by any stretch of the imagination, justice.

    RE: Sam Adams at October 30, 2011 at 8:14 pm:

    In general, you are correct and your points are well-taken. Add to it this:

    “2. ……if they don’t gather nuts while the weather is still good, no government squirrel feeder is going to stop buy in the dead of winter to bail them out.”

    As it should be in a free-market system, there are private individuals that will extend a helping hand. In addition, the squirrels often steal food intended for the birds.

    “4. Squirrels know that other squirrels stopping by and demanding that they share their store of nuts is not, by any stretch of the imagination, justice.”

    Keep in mind that they DO exhibit some interesting collectivist (pardon the pun) behavior in that they will all bury nuts, and later on will not necessarily dig up “their” nuts – any nut will do.

    They have also been known to eat each other’s young.

    Squirrels are basically rats that are better looking.

    Although it is sometimes tempting to compare Leftists to rodents, it’s not fair to the rodents – they are a much higher life form.

    They also just want to live free with no government “help” – or interference.

    I made it through about 20 seconds of brutha West. There is nothing as pathetic as a black “intellectual”. Like a 5th grader in a suit and tie…

  15. IOpian says:

    Of the two, one man has made himself rich by applying the principles capitalism and the other has sucked off the government teat to get where he’s at. One man is based in reality and the other in blackboard theories.

  16. ant says:

    Wow, they just have ALL the answers. I’d like to ask that woman how government raking in more money in taxes is supposed to help an individual pay their student loans. Keeping the folks ignorant seems to have been a successful tool for the left.
