Totally Non-Capitalist Economies have been repeatedly tried. And have always failed.
Actually no they have not failed. They were however unable to wage war to prevent capitalists from conquering them.

Gary...

Explain the success of Non-Capitalist Soviet Union, China, Cuba, North Korea, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, East Germany, et al.

Something tied to the original... thingy... that lead to this:

"Authorities Arrest 3 People Connected To One Of The San Bernardino Killers"

Picking up straws... :/

Just a natural response to terrorism, or any other heinous crime.

All Laws broken. Will be enforced.

-BACK TO SUBJECT-

Protests rage outside Trump rally in Orange County; 17 arrested, police car smashed

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-gays-for-trump-crowd-gathers-at-costa-mesa-rally-20160428-story.html

These tactics are ensuring a Trump victory.

Why doesn't The Left understand this?

Once again, name calling and insults all round.

I find it quite strange that if someone disagrees with you then it is time for insults.

Can we try and remember that all who post here have their own world view and it is probably not yours. However it does not make them inferior to you.

As a moderator I try to keep up with most threads however I have to say the politics forum is definitely the most depressing, conspiracy theories abound and supposed adults squabbling like children.

Agree...

Do we stop responding, or use the Red 'X'?

BTW: I despise censorship. Even against Offensive Posts/Speech.

Now what?

You can not equate an Attacker against Blacks, Women, LGBT, etc. With the response against these Bigots.

As you can not equate an Attacker against Whites, Men, Straights, etc. With the response against these Bigots.

What does one do?

Are you saying that you Red-X each and everyone of bobby's posts?
I didn't say anything, you did. Bobbie attempted an unsolicited circular argument in PM land and I simply used the tools provided by the forum.

As to whose a simpleton.............

Attempted the same to me.

bobby is...

well...

I see Donald has started playing the "My opponent is a woman" card.

As Hillary has always played her: "My opponent is a (fill-in the negatives) male" card.

They are two peas, in the same rotten pod.

A POX on Both.

Without Capitalism.

There is no wealth to distribute. No wealthy to tax. No...

Totally Non-Capitalist Economies have been repeatedly tried. And have always failed.

Not speaking of Fascism/Western 'Socialism' (both the same). Both are farces.

The Left always prove Einstein's definition of insanity.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- The slayings of eight family members in rural southern Ohio were sophisticated, planned executions, authorities said Sunday, as they also revealed that several marijuana-growing operations were found at the crime scenes.


A bit of a nee jerk reaction by the sheriff telling people they need weapons to protect them self's .

From what ??

It was a mafia hit pure and simple only the adults where killed not the kids so nobody else would be shot unless they where involved with there pot growing operations .

I say sack the sheriff for causing a public panic for no reason.
The Public (aka The People) have already armed themselves 'To The Teeth'.

They are not mindless robots (at least in America). Listening to either the idiots of The Left or Right.


Just think all them guns and still they couldn't protect them self's so how does owning a gun protect you again ...please explain this .....

Their Individual Free Choice.

Disagreeing with their Individual Decision, in a Free Society. Is your, and my, Right of Free Expression.

Gun Owners, disagreeing with your Individual Decision, not to possess a firearm, in a Free Society. Is their Right of Free Expression.

Nothing more. Nothing less.

Free Expression, Free Press, Free Association (Including Marxists and NAZI's), Right to Own Firearms. etc. Will of course, lead to chaos and and increased crime.

A much better alternative, to a belief that 'The People' need to be Controlled by the Deranged Lunatic Fringe. Who believe they are Superior to 'The People'.

Yeah that's the answer, more taxes. It's worked so well in GB and Europe. You have no crime, the best medical care in the universe without waiting, no unemployment, no homeless, no illegal immigration problem and total sovereignty and security without outside assistance from the US..........Oh wait.....

PAX Americana...

Living under America's Economic and Military Umbrella. As an Adolescent, living in daddy's home. Is over.

Good Luck World.

Fasten your seat belt folks it's gonna be an interesting six months....

Both are among the highest negatives of any Nominee.

BTW: Stop with the "My Candidate's Majority Negatives. Is less than Your Candidate's Majority Negatives." Silliness.

BTW 2: Can we start over. With two different people?

so the chains were more economic and less physical, wage theft, no pay for overtime, tips stolen, etc. accept it or we call the police and have you deported!

What we have, is an unholy alliance between Left Wing Ideologues (Open Borders). And Corrupt Capitalists (Slave Labor).

Who's the idiot?

Ain't The Capitalists.

Maybe governments should give their citizens free meals and a TV set

Just the Historically Successful way to Control 'The People'.

Question: Why do some continue to support this?

Answer: Those supporting Controlling 'The People'. Believe they will be the Controllers.

That's why I said in the Trump thread, that the jobs, the mainly blue collar workers that support Trump want back, will not be coming back. If the industry does come back it will be automated, and they, unless they get more education, are not qualified.

If most human workers are replaced by machines.

Who will have money to buy, what the machines produce?

Machine Unemployment?

It's been said before. If you want a solution to the main problems that mankind faces in the near future, global warming, food and water shortages and now job shortages, reduce the population.

WinterKnight...

Yes. Human Overpopulation, is the real problem.

Who will be the first volunteer?

If no volunteers... Who will control the Central Authority making these decisions?

Who said we needed volunteers, or for that matter specified a time span.

WinterKnight...

Volunteers was just sarcasm.

7,000,000,000 People is unsustainable. Unless we ALL lower ourselves to the level of the people of Somalia.

ALL Civilizations collapse. And not just for Political or Military reasons.

Just study the Climate Related Collapses of some Egyptian Dynasties (No Water - Eating their Children) and the Roman Empire (Cooling - Extreme Crop Failure)). Resulting in extreme pestilence and extreme population reduction. As ours will.

Just an Inconvenient Fact.

BTW: Sorry for the above pessimism. I just observe the present 'conditions' as an Historian. Perhaps 1000 or 2000 years in the future.

Nothing new, or different today. What has happened in our past - Will happen in our future.

Just the 'Time Frame' is open to debate.

Sorry.

I'm beginning to think he doesn't know much about anything more that a handful of miles away from his abode.

Gary...

Interesting attack against the factual posts of MajorKong.

Or as they say:

When Losing the Intellectual and/or Factual Argument...

CLYDE if you look closely at Gary's post you'd realize that Gary was making an aside comment to MK about Dart-beaver-man.

Wakey, wakey.

just...

Gary's Post, over one hour, and directly after MajorKong's Post. Which was referring to Texas, is not...

just...

Your Posts, as Gary's, are also 'interesting'.

Keep it up.

Donald Trump has won presidential primaries in all five US states that voted on Tuesday, while Hillary Clinton triumphed in four out of five.
Anybody surprised?

Should be Hillary vs. Trump.

May Hillary and the Democrats understand the Valid Concerns and Fears, possibly driving Trump to a Presidential Victory.

Unfortunately...

I have no faith. That any Professional Politician(s), have that capacity.

:( :( :(

I never implied that centralised power should be the power of one person. I was thinking more on the lines of a democratically elected assembly, like the Senate or the Houses of Parliament.

And most of the time, before the 20th century, it has been some French leader the English have had to go and sort out. World policeman, you're still on the learning curve.

WinterKnight...

Until Human DNA evolves:

"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely"

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

--- George Santayana


Unfortunately... The above has been, is, and will always be, true.
