    Comrades,

    I regret to inform you that comrade FranchiseBlade has decided to forego his hammer-and-sickle buttocks tattoo. Per party rules, his resistance to the proposed Glassnost will result in his exile... to the GARM. There to suffer for the rest of his life under the control of comrade DaDakota, leader of the GARM arm of the Gulag.

    We've been somewhat Socialist for a very long time. We are no where near the extreme left that is Communist, but if your government is the largest employer in your country, you have to be partially socialist.

    How many employees can your government have to not be socialist. If there is a formula I'd like to see it. It doesn't seem to match the definition of socialism that I learned, but I'd like to see the formula nonetheless.

    It's about time...

    "The socialist system will eventually replace the capitalist system; this is an objective law independent of man's will. However much the reactionaries try to hold back the wheel of history, eventually revolution will take place and will inevitably triumph."

    Mao Tse Tung
    November 6, 1957

    Employing the current conservative definition of socialist, our nation has ALWAYS been socialist.

    It is way too complicated formula for you to understand. It is called a mixed economy. Part socialist, part capitalist.

    If I get the hammer and sickle tattoo on my buttocks, can I join the socialist leaders? :confused:

    My resume is:
    * no tattoos
    * socialist thinking and voting
    * socialist posting on interwebs

    Please?

    On April 16 in Washington, D.C., the Ad Hoc National Network to Stop Evictions & Foreclosures organized a demonstration outside a meeting of the Mortgage Bankers Associaton at the Washington Court Hotel.

    Dan Hayes and Michael C. Moynihan checked out the demonstration and talked with some of the activists, who quickly changed the subject from home loans to Castro's Cuban paradise, the need to free Mumia Abu Jamal, forgiving student loans, the Rothschilds (!), Haitians eating a mixture of dirt and oil (!?!?), and much, much more

    LOL. I can't believe Fox News sometimes. I can understand hating left leaning networks, but Fox takes their right wing bias to a whole new level above networks with a left wing bias. I think I'll watch CNN if I want actual news.
