    Am I surprised?
    Nope.
    That's the way 'collectives' work in the real world kids. Everyone is equal, just some are more equal than others, just like the Utopias they admire most.
    Now shut up and go wave your sign some more.

    Actually, not capitalists because they didn't earn the money, they were given the money through charity, and they aren't creating something people want or need. It is magic money, not capitalist money.

    Oh please ... you are one click away, good sir, from me having had enough.

    Sometimes I think it's interesting to see another view but, honestly, you have got to listen to more people than those one-dimensional 'spokes-people' you revere all too much. You have a mind and it needs to be your own.

    On economic matters, on here at least (not counting Elder's practical experience with wealth) I am probably the most qualified person you know (as in 'correspond with'). I'm not a media-whore, I actually am a qualified economist who has trained as one of those vile little traders that have caused so much of our present woes. I don't have a political drum to beat in the empty-headed Republican-Democrat nut-fest, I'm a British Liberal. I am for individual responsibility and government keeping out of things that don't concern it or it doesn't do well. So when I talk about things that the we discuss here I am not fighting a political corner, I am telling you what I think based upon my education and experience.

    Listen once in a while, eh? Then make your own mind up and speak from that rather than incessantly telling us what partisan 'journalists' say.

    You also know how economists arrive at their theories, right!

    'Let's assume...'


    Yes, I tortured myself through a couple of years of economy college...

    Maybe the 'Experts' keep failing us because they don't really have a clue and could not get one in clue mating season. because they don't know their brass from their oboe and really are no experts, just somebody who got shoved (or pushed themself) into the lime light!

    I wonder...do these silly people on Wall street, making a mess of the place, realize that the charity donations that they are receiving probably came from people who work for...corporations.

    Here love:


    EVERYBODY can claim to be an expert.

    And no, this chick is doing it utterly and completely WRONG! (yes, the brass/oboe thing)


    I keep thinking about 'City Slickers 2': the radio psychiatrist was the weather man or recipe guy before that and if he blows that gig he will be in gardening or sport...

    Don't be a hater. If any of you would like to donate money to me, for whatever reason, feel free.

    The flattop pretty much eliminates the chance of a bun...

    "Argument is an intellectual process. Contradiction is just the automatic gainsaying of anything the other person says." Monty Python

    You are good at contradiction, I'll give you that.

    :heavy sigh: I guess that means I wasted my skin cells on the keyboard ... again. There comes a time when you have to leave things alone and this is it. Ta-ra.
