Re: Charlottesville

Reducing a community to an extended family is just the excuse you need to keep exploiting everybody else. And your charity often is no more than giving bananas to the apes in the zoo... It's done for the giver to feel good, not to safeguard the rights of the receiver... No socialist ever gets to co...

Re: Charlottesville

Leftists aren't the only ones who understand that public veneration of the Confederacy is long past its expiry date. Yes, there are always a few extremists who are good at getting news coverage for vandalism, but from what I've seen, most people on this side of the issue are happy for the statues to...

Re: Dick's CEO: "The Retail Industry Is In Panic Mode"

The mall in my area of Northern Virginia has basically closed. The stores died one by one, finally the interior of the mall was closed, then the Macy's closed, and now all that's open on the premises is a Sears. And considering that Sears is circling the drain nationwide, when they're your healthies...

Re: Kessler is a racist, authoritarian leftist

You will never understand what socialism is because you don't know what a community is. Quite the opposite. It's socialists who don't know what community is, because real community is voluntary, it's not forced at the barrel of a gun. To you society is just a bunch of individuals stacked together p...

On the other hand, finding the dyslexic leftwing sign is like a game of Where's Wally? compared with how many on the right are enthusiastic supporters of "boarders", etc.
Somehow I don't think so Steve

Re: Can we stop the collapse of democracy?

Loosely related observation; the last several decades saw a slow shift in the west which has morfed in fron of our eyes from strong will to combat evil in the battlefield and with diplomacy to a west of bankrupt coffers, tired and unwilling to go to battle. This has reversed the west's key premise;...

Re: Dick's CEO: "The Retail Industry Is In Panic Mode"

Amazon's predatory model. There's nothing "predatory" about being better at something than the companies that came before you. I noticed the other day that it seems in someone put stock in Amazon warehouses they can no longer link to their own web site. That if true means Amazon is talking a paths ...

Re: Facism and Nazism are from the left

The sweet spot, in my view, are those in the Politically and Economically Free quadrant. These will come from the Republican Party, the Consevative Party of the UK and the Liberal/National parties of Australia. Admittedly, not all politicians in these parties are sufficiently supportive of economic...
