    The pup is my dog Yardley Labs Ms T-Maxx (Misty). She did nicely in Derby last year and would have been fun to run this year but she was barefoot and pregnant. Hopefully I will have her running in Q's next spring. She has her figure back now, so I may also try to run a couple of hunt tests if I can juggle my schedule.
    Is that dog related to "Max's Surprise?"

    When the notion of private property and return on capital is eliminated, and we begin the process of eliminating democracy in favor of the dictatorship of the proletariat as represented by a single political party, we are moving more in the direction of Marxism. As long as 1% of the population is earning 25% of all income, the bottom 40% of the population is earning 10% of income, and return on capital is almost as high or higher than return on labor, we are not even close.


    You actually read the entire Das Kapital set.....what BS college course did you take that required that? I know you didn't just decide on your own to read that....well...trash.

    Fascism is a far more appropriate term for this administration.

    I actually read it as a freshman in college (it was not an assignment) and I will admit that I was paying a lot less attention in volumes 2 & 3 than I was in volume 1. I was fascinated with political history and it happens to be a pretty important book from an historical perspective. The copy I had was published in 1967, one century following the original publication of volume 1. Marx (and Engels, who actually finished the books) was writing in a continuum with other 18th and 19th century authors who were trying to sort out what was happening during the industrial revolution. He followed and even drew on some of the work of Adam Smith (who authored The Wealth of Nations in the 18th century), but also reflected other 19th century German philosophers.

    Did you ever read "The Human Drift" by King Gillette??

    The renowned "Utopian Socialist."

    Which probably is also an accurate description of who is in power now, since most of them are city folk.
