    You probably like affirmative action and quotas for minority mortgages too as long as they don't move into your gated community and your kids don't have to go to school with theirs.

    I think you are quoting people I have on IGNORE....I have such abhorrence for liberal morons I have to put them on ignore.
    Now I do have some good friends that are bent towards liberalism but they are reasonable thoughtful people. When it comes down to particular issue we tend to be pretty close with minor variances in belief. But the pseudo intellectual coffee house psychobabble isn’t worth listening too much less reading.

    Julie, where is that limo you speak of? My pickup has 200,000 miles on it but it's paid for. My jeep is long of tooth as well.

    I answered the lady's question, I didn't "pull rank ' on her. I didn't go to any Ivy League school and I paid for all of my education by working in factories and kitchens. I had a lot more than one class in political theory. My kids went to public schools and so far they haven't put gates on my community.

    Oh by the way, I ain't no liberal.

    We do not have a disagreement. I think I was critical of the application of communist theory when I said:

    "Trouble is the communist regimes never seem to get beyond the establishment of the dictatorship. They claim the reason for that is capitalism still exists in the world and it continually inject its "greedy" influences into the social system."

    "They never seem to get the idea they create their own bourgeois in the form of the commissars."

    The whole failure of communism is that it believes it can make people put on their pants differently than they did before--that their new system will make people good and virtuous in the end. But, people end up behaving like they do in any system.

    The jarring bump in the road is the dictatorship piece. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
    One party states never move beyond that point.

    You seem to believe your political viewpoint gives you a special license to be obtuse and nasty. When you send me a personal email that says, "Don't ever call me a Commuist...I would whip your ass for that if that was in person ..you just fucked up and got ignored.", you seal that conclusion. Now run off and get your diaper changed.
    You're pretty rude, aren't you son of Cronus and Rhea?

    It was hard enough to take you seriously before now....

    Hardly, KG. The dude threatened me with violence for something I didn't do. I not about to let that slide. I think you would have done the same thing in similar vein.
