Joe, in Europe and India, far left groups are becoming increasingly popular. The French Communist Party is the third largest party in the country; in Spain, too, and in Russia, the second largest, and in Cyprus, the largest, and in Greece, among the largest, and in Germany, significant. That's evidence that people are sick of capitalism. And the 'mixed economy' is a capitalist economy because the means of production are privately owned. The wealth that supports public programs is ultimately derived from taxes on business, the capitalist "part" of the economy, so it doesn't evade the problems of capitalist production. Face the reality. People are sick of capitalism.
Wither you realize it or not there is not a moment that passes that you do not receive some benefit from our government. And that benefit bears a cost. You sleep in relative safety, you work in a safe environment, and you eat safe foods all because your government is spending money to provide those services to you. Just because the government is not cutting you a check every month, it does not mean you are not getting benefits from our government and the government is not spending money for your benefit.
I am not a Wall Street banker. I work at Taco Bell. I have been homeless in the past. I have never taken a penny of assistance from the government even though I am A gulf war veteran. Not because I am to proud to take charity (I have). But because I do not believe that it is the governments job to dispense it. I am a libertarian because I took an oath to defend the constitution when I joined the army. I have failed in my duty and I am sorry.
Partisanship sure is counter-productive, isn't it?
hai good morning.what time is there
Thanks River Ape, I will check it out. Thanks for the info!
Well, I guess we shouldn't really be discussing our share recommendations on the BP thread. So this is just to say I have gone for can-maker REXAM. 312p this morning. Bought 12,000.
LOL, I am sure Pazuzu does. :) How could anyone find otherwise? Your make over is very nice Giambattista. I am sure you get a lot of compliments.
I'm not sure what I meant the first time, but I'm sure you're really laughing now that I've gotten my makeover. I'll have you know, however, Pazuzu finds me quite charming.
