Rarely are half measures adequate, and nowhere is this more the case than with misanthropy, I think. A jaundiced eye for people who are on welfare, but not for people who aren't - or, alternatively, a jaundiced eye for people who begrudge the temporarily downtrodden the help of welfare, but not for people who don't, and not for the temporarily downtrodden themselves. A jaundiced eye for Democrats but not for Republicans, perhaps, or vice versa. A jaundiced eye for the mindless drones at their desks, but not for the captains of industry, those Ubermenschen - or, alternatively, a jaundiced eye for the ruthless exploiters at the top of the pyramid, but not for the proletariat, who do the work and produce the thing sold.

But now I'm starting to drift afield from the original post, into saying things like, a jaundiced eye for non-whites taking jobs or taking welfare, but not for whites, who deserve the jobs because capitalism originated in white culture - or, alternatively, a jaundiced eye for whites, who slaughtered or displaced any aboriginal inhabitants who had the bad luck to be in the way, or made slaves of those who had the bad luck to be near at hand and vulnerable to such a thing, but not for non-whites, who in all things have been victimized and deserve recompense.

I'll stop there, and merely suggest that misanthropy in whole cloth might smell less of hypocrisy. Humanity sucks. I'm sure the trees would agree, if they were capable of such opinions. Humanity is rotten to the core. The sole saving grace is the occasional individual whose sense of honesty, beauty and fairness dazzles us, even if only sometimes. Here and there an individual doesn't suck, or at least sometimes doesn't. But taken as a whole our species reeks of myriad corruptions. It isn't this side of the coin but not that, or that side of the coin but not this. It's the coin.

The economy isn't in the gutter due to an overcrowded poverty department. Things are more complicated than that.

"Unemployed" is not a synonym for "lazy" and "pathetic". This may be your opinion on them, but really... Barkley's is letting over three thousand people go, just to name one example. All of them are going to be unemployed soon and in tough waters trying to find new employment. Most people find themselves out of a job due to circumstances beyond their power to control.
I don't understand why you wrote this sentence, " I dislike liberals and humans rights activists / advocates." in there. Stream of consciousness maybe? Anyway... I am a liberal and I advocate human rights. I am convinced that people deserve equal chances to grow and better themselves so that they can contribute what they can to further a world worth living in. It is not about helping those who won't help themselves. Again, things are more complicated than that.

Well, here is one of the problems. Too much money has been spent in the past to keep the U.S. military in a steady cash-flow. The educational system and the infrastructur have been put on hold for too long. I have seen cities in the U.S. that looked like something from a third world country. Talk about pathetic.
Space technology is a very interesting field. I have always been fascinated by the idea of exploring worlds "out there", but I also understand that humans are not ready to do so. The issues at hand have to fixed first. Spending millions on space programs while schools aren't able to supply computer access to their students. Seems really rather silly.

I am not going to quote the rest of your post. It is full of biases and finger-pointing. If you needed to vent about an issue that really seems to piss you off, I'd suggest letting it all go in a good old ritual. And if the topic still bothers you, do some research and do something about it. Personally, I think that talking about extinguishing a specific group of people because it is easy to make them the scape-goat of an economic crisis is a disturbing thought. It has been done in the past and in some places they are still doing it. As far as I know, it never came to any good for anybody.
