And while I'm on the subject of your being right, you are perfectly right to slam Red for using the phrase "your kind" and then come back and use the same phrase multiple times yourself. Gosh it just works when you use it.
So let's give no more money to bad government, but instead finish up the job of concentrating it in the hands of a very few who must be smarter than us because they are the successful ones. Then we will all just wait for them to build roads, schools, hospitals and so on which they will then charge us to use. If they charge too much and we can't afford it, well that is just our fault for being so stupid and lazy.
Maybe we'll run into each other under the table waiting for scraps.
I reserve the right to communicate with him with terms he's fond of using. If I have offended you then I apologize.you are perfectly right to slam Red for using the phrase "your kind" and then come back and use the same phrase multiple times yourself. Gosh it just works when you use it.
I don't recall stating the free market or capitalism to be anything other than the least worst system for a society. If you are looking for perfection you will not find it in our system or any other. If you've got suggestions for another (better) system I'd love to hear it.
If you think road systems, schools and hospitals don't have a govt price tag associated with them then I just don't know what else to say (what's the gasoline tax up to in Cali.... $.45 per gallon??? Which, BTW, is a regressive tax that really guts the poor more than any other group, as does $4.00 per gallon at the pump... oh, and the State taking their share which is significantly higher than the profit made by the maker of the fuel.... and the maker of the fuel is of course the evil enterprise meanwhile the State just simply cannot ever do with less... because it would be soooo unfair).
Imagine where Mark Zuckerberg would be today if he sat around waiting for 'scraps'. You act as if your fate is sealed and there is no possibility for you to achieve your goals, whatever they may be. I find that sad but common thinking on the left. So rather than appreciate people being allowed to go out and do their thing you going to lump as criminals those that have been extremely successful... as if everything that they accomplish has been on the backs of other people. Okay...
