Get the working class back on their feet and homelessness will take care of itself.

Loggy, your friend is a coward. He has nothing to bring to the table and he knows it. Republicans have zero interest in sustainable policy, zero interest in human suffering, and zero interest in the environment.

Socialism? Nah, not interested in the "owning the means of production" crap. If he read anything at all here he could see that. I wonder if he took social studies in school? Was it a class about socialism? No.

Is Social Security a program devised to secure the ownership of the means of production for the government? No. Do Social Directors seek to achieve government ownership of the means of production? uh-uh. So why does everyone insist that a social democracy is anything like the failed soviet model. Why the f*ck would government want to take over running businesses. Government is run BY BUSINESS, not the other way around. That is, more or less, what it's all about.

The Nordic nations, as well as a lot more around the world, are embracing the social democratic model. All it involves really is forcing "trickle down" to occur. Nobody ever said they were soviet style "Socialists".



Well in loggy's defense, I don't know how much of a friend the guy really is because nobody has more than an anonymous nickname. No one knows his real name or even his email address.

Side note:
Do you guys remember Redheat? Well, she remembers us and she misses us too and I am attempting to help her with the log-in.
So if we're lucky we can enjoy her company again at the Rant.
I am back to trying to lure old friends back to the family again.

He's not a friend, he is a narcissistic pseudo intellectual who needs dose of reality. But he's too, too skairt to come here and git hisself all bloodied up.

It's a Disqus channel and I guess they are getting set to exterminate all of them Sept 1 - good riddance, I have wasted far too much time there for not much purpose but some low brow entertainment. I did invite another person from there to join us who is an intelligent, level-headed Austinite. He'll be attempting to sign up soon - he goes by Kelvin.

Norway’s success is inconvenient for critics of progressive, big-government economic and social policies; Conservatives prefer that the public associate socialism with basket cases such as North Korea and Venezuela. Ohio Gene is no different.

smile



OG is the type of Conservative that actually believes that NAZI Germany really were socialists because the word "socialism" is in National Socialist German Workers Party. crazy

Sounds just like OG. The delusion is strong in that one.

Hmm
