He's just as dangerous as stupid little, and just as ignorant of reality, Socialists.

Perhaps The Donald and Socialists, could be exiled to a deserted island, and leave us alone.

One could only hope and pray.

I take it that as someone that is so against feudal dynasties i.e. Monarchies, that you will be renouncing y our Canadian citizenship shortly and be moving to the USA or elsewhere similar. You would not want to leave yourself open to thoughts of hypocrisy I am quite sure.

I've seen where you've made this kind of post before. Poor. Very poor.

Don't worry, personal attacks are usually a sign that the person has no real argument to make.

Feudal dynasties are a ridiculous thing in the modern world. Dismiss them.

Agreed. We should definitely throw them out of the country.

Somewhat to Gordon's idea, the monitor for my PC in the living room(which doubles as my DVR), is mounted in the drop door desk portion of an circa. 1895 Doctor's Apothecary. A fixture in my parents home while I was growing up it came from the Union Pacific Railroad dispensary(my father retired from the UP after 35 years of service). It is beautiful birds eye maple and when closed you can't tell it's a computer desk.


That's a lovely bit of furniture.

The standard of living for those on a low income is much higher in Europe than in the US.

What? It depends in what country you live in.
Europe is a continent not a country...
Have you ever been to Russia?

I was thinking more of EU countries. Although Russia under the soviet union used to be better of you were poor than it is now.

$15 an hour still isn't enough to live on.


I get € 11,00 ($ 12,23) an hour and I have all the luxury I need.

I am surprised, although you can't compare what you an buy Euro for Dollar. I also suspect that being in a socialist country you have good local transit and other things are subsidised that aren't in the US. The standard of living for those on a low income is much higher in Europe than in the US.

Could everyone here please knock off the personal attacks or I will have to close this thread. :/

If your post has the word "you" in it or another poster's name in it, it probably should be rewritten.

Now I've been too busy working to post much in politics the last few weeks, but I have some time off now. I've scanned through this thread to get a general idea of where the conversation is going and I've only seen a few attempts to actually define work.

So are we talking about paid useful work? Paid unnecessary work? Unpaid unnecessary work? Or Unpaid necessary work? What is work?

Does work become work the minute it is recognised with a paycheck? What about the billions of dollars of essential unpaid work that goes on in society every day unpinning the economy and without which nothing else would be possible?

It seems to me that people judge how hard someone works by how much they get paid, which is obvious nonsense. Also, pay really doesn't reflect how important some work is. Which of these is more fundamental to the economy? Highly paid sport stars or unpaid carers?

Is $15 an hour really so terrible when the people at the top get paid such ridiculous salaries that don't actually reflect their worth and what they contribute.

$15 an hour still isn't enough to live on. Why is it wrong to judge people for only wanting to work if they are going to get paid a decent wage for it? Is America really missing its slave class so much?

I think people should be very careful about otherising refugees. These are desperate people that need help.

Not to sound morbid Angela. But...I have heard reports of "human pork" being sold in the marketplace in N. Korea. I was watching a documentary about N. Korea refugees in S. Korea. The documentor asked the question if that was true or not. The refugees did not answer the question right away but had this "been busted" look.


North Korea was in a state of famine from 1994 to 1998. If my children were dying of starvation, who knows to what lengths I would go to feed them?

...!

I am pretty sure that as much as I love my cat, I'd feed her to my kids if they were starving.

Debate tonight on tv. I'm making popcorn. :~)

I'm watching it now. I have to say they are a bunch of really nasty, closed minded, horrible people.

Anyone who thinks anything they have to say is true or reasonable is morally bankrupt in my opinion.

Horrible.

Someone has posted a notice for a cat they have found that looks exactly like my missing Sauron. Waiting to hear back from them. She does look like pretty much every black cat, so I can hope can't I?

Wondering What 'Privilege' Is? This Video Has Some Answers For You

Es99...

It is you who doesn't understand what the Racist Accusation of 'White Privilege' really is.

Just another term, that Blacks cannot be held to the same level of responsibility, nor expectations, as Non-Blacks.

That Blacks cannot, except with White/Asian/Hispanic acceptance or assistance (Victorian Racist 'White Man's Burden'), succeed.

Unlike ALL other oppressed groups who said to their Oppressors (in this case Whites and Hispanics) "F... You, we can do it".

Clyde, I understand your point. You have made it many times before.

What you are not understanding is what the concept of privilege is and you are conflating with something entirely different.

I think you are doing this deliberately because the whole concept of facing your white, male privilege makes you feel uncomfortable.
