Gee Bernie, perhaps you would prefer images that depict the true face of Socialism TODAY not the facts of history.........

....or perhaps one from France......


As France is a constitutional republic, just like the USA, with a structure that is very similar.

By implication you are saying the USA is Socialist.

......not yet, but there is a wave of the historical illiterate wishing to make it that way. I am not against VOLUNTARY contributions to VALID Social Programs...........two key words there, neither of which are the case in either Venezuela OR France.

Voluntary implies freely given, not imposed by authority.
Valid means actual, existing and indisputable.

Starvation under the 'Maduro Diet' is existing, actual and indisputable.
Trying to take a train from NYC to London is also indisputable.......stupidity.

Just like sending a man to the moon and returning him safely to the earth.

It is only stupidity until you do it, then it is sheer brilliance.

It is obvious you don't share the foresight of a person who wrote this.

Yes... That would be "stupidity".

Military satellites, Paying your "arch enemy" to launch your astronauts, wasting billions on naval ships that spring leaks before they even enter service - Yep, stupidity. :-)

I'm sure Elon Musk is aiming for a hyperloop tube to do just that.

Edit - I thought that was just a joke, but see what the Daily Mail thought of it:

Forget the Hyperloop! Plan for vacuum tube travel between UK and the US unveiled - but is it just a pipe dream?

Bit stale. :-)
The Royal Navy confirmed the problem was identified during sea trials and said the aircraft carrier is scheduled for repair.
Got that on video provided by the BBC in 2017/18.. At least the QE didn't have such a hilarious issue

Don't you know that White Star Line who built the Titanic was owned by the American banker John Pierpont Morgan but let British Joseph Bruce Ismay be the CEO of the company.
White Star Line then built the Titanic in Belfast, Ireland.
Sounds like outsourcing or business as usual to me and not socialism.

As the wag wrote in the QE article, problems always are found in 1st of Class warships.
Also 'Bit stale https://navaltoday.com/2019/01/17/uss-gerald-r-ford-receives-first-functional-weapons-elevator/
USS Gerald R. Ford is the first Ford-class aircraft carrier and is the first new carrier design in over 40 years. Unlike Nimitz-class carrier elevators that utilize cables for movement, the Ford class elevators are commanded via electromagnetic, linear synchronous motors allowing for greater capacities and a faster movement of weapons.

The Ford also has electromagnetic catapults and arrestors. It is still undergoing acceptance trials.
