You forgot "pinko". I love that word. For some reason I can't help but take on an Archie Bunker-ish accent every time I use it. :lol3:

We need an Archie these days. He was the perfect foil for exposing faults without really condemning individuals. He was (reluctantly) open to change, too.

How else would you describe the masses after seeing cwho makes it out of our primary elections? It almost always the person with the most cash, not the person with the best plan or ideas.

This is so, and it neatly parallels my notions about the dark side of capitalism (or at least our current version of it) that is, the people who garner to themselves the most wealth and power are the ones who are good at making money, and not necessarily the ones whose efforts might best build a better nation. Just for the record, my recognizing that capitalism HAS a dark side does NOT make me a socialist/marxist/communist or any such thing. It just makes me a realist

Sorry BDD2, your disclaimers will fall on deaf ears. In this venue the mere suggestion that capitalism HAS a dark side makes the majority clamor for drawing and quartering. Regardless of the validity or motive of conceivably critical statements, any potentially positive changes uttered leads to a well-organized chant of...."Well, ya socialist, red, commie homo. this here's the good ol' US of A, the greatest nation on God's green Earth, and if ya don't like it you can just pack up and leave and good riddance to ya!. And like I aleardy tol' ya, stay off the lawn!"
The creation of zealots makes one a good animal trainer, not a reasoned voice in the chaos of the masses.

And posts like that do nothing to foster good discussion or recognize that not everyone regurgitates the main stream talking points.

Were it not so blatantly true I would not feel the need to state it. Of course there are exceptions, but the general attitude is pervasive. How often do the few self-proclaimed persons of a varied degree of liberal mindedness here not get saddled with the stereotypical liberal saddle blanket other than by a few, such as cd, that don't knee-jerk grampappies anti-deluvian homilies in the guise of patriotism?

It's actually antedeluvian :hi:

But I'll admit I had to look it up. I just had to poke at you because its a bit of a pet peeve of mine when people use language that's not in common use to make a simple point :)

I just wing it and hope they'll know what I meant! I HATE spell-check. I feel like it's an opponent rather than an asst. for some reason! But thanks. Not that I'll remember it in ten years when I want to use it again! :lol3: But we have to keep those rarely used words in the lexicon or they'll just fade away. I've always been fascinated by the connotations of words, even the ones I can't spell! :lol3:

You know, it's my favorite sitcom of all time but the storylines were always so one sided. Basically every episode ends with Archie finding out he was wrong about something, and having to hear it from a man child who never spent a day in the real world. It always bothered me that Michael learned a few lessons from Gloria but rarely ever had to admit fault to Archie.

You two seem like the type that have formed your opinions because you fear for the safety and welfare of those sheep. More like sheep dogs.

That's a very decent thing to say, cd! Don't encounter that often here! :beer:

100 points to Assateague for a great rebuttal. :thumbsup:

Free market yes, but I wouldn't say free market sans regulation would be very effective.

Sent from my ADR6410LVW using Tapatalk 2

Free market without regulation descends very rapidly into totalitarianism. A productive free market cannot exist without fundamentally agreed upon upon regulation, changing the very interpretation of "free market." It will always need a descriptive...."limited"...."controlled"..."regulated"... As does the word "freedom" by the way. So our basic differences lay in degree, not in concept. Regardless of how vain glorious it is to pronounce one as a supporter of freedom in life and trade.



Show me where in history there ever was a free market without regulation, and I'll agree.

As for the rest, it simply gets tiresome hearing about how the evils of capitalism are inherent to the system, but that the woes of socialism are mere products of "incorrect" implementation. If I constantly talked about the woes of a vagina, and the glories of a boner, it wouldn't necessarily make me gay. But it should damn sure make you wonder, and would certainly make it understandable for one to think I was.

Jim,
you're a moron. Just wante to tell you. No particular reason. I haven't called you that in a whille and just wanted to share the love.
In a free society, it is not the obligation of the citizen to prove to the government that he is a good person. It is the obligation of the government to prove to the rest of the citizenry that the citizen is a bad person, with probable cause.

Jim,

Thanks buddy! I felt there was something missing in my life and was having trouble pinning it down! :beer:
Kind of like when God put Adam on the Earth and then visited after a while to see how things were going.
Adam said "Well, it's beautiful and all, but it feels like there is something missing."
God thought for a minute and said "How would you like it if I were to give you a companion. One beautiful in all ways, and lives for nothing but to make you happy?"
Adam said "Well, gee, that sounds great, but what's it going to cost me?"
God replies "An arm and a leg."
Adam thinks about it and says "Wow. That's kinda steep. What can I get for a rib?"

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

In the liberal world, Justice is not blind. It cares about your skin color, your income, your wealth, your past misfortunes, your ...

ALL are equal under the law or we are not free.

Trying to rig the system to help the right people by controlling them so they don't make bad decisions is what you do with your children and not what government does to YOU.

Education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, education, ...

This is how this things are addressed. Ever kid in the country by law must go to school until 16 and can freely go until 18 or so, that is how you address bad choices. Education and freedom not control and government power.

No kid should get a high school diploma and not know how to calculate and understand the cost of loan. This and many other basic life skills that I'm not sure even Obama really understands.

So obviously there should be no restrictions on insider trading, correct? It's just taking advantage of your knowledge and ability to prevail over others who do not possess that knowledge. Happens every day.
