Singapore loves Socialists (provided they got money)

Some of you may not know this. The first place Robert Mugabe visited after his ouster was Singapore. He came ostensibly for a routine medical check-up. I don't know for sure, but I think he is still here. He was spotted by a friend leaving a hospital recently. His family has links to Singapore . His...

Re: well, unfettered capitalism does not seem to work too well either!

Private fortunes of the rich can easily be protected using tax havens. What I fear is that Socialism will lead to bankruptcy and dictatorship. That is what is happening now in Venezuela. You do not need socialism to ruin a country cassowary; only mismanagement. You credit Singapore's wealth to "fre...

Re: Russia meddled in U.S. election: George W. Bush

Re: Russia meddled in U.S. election: George W. Bush

Nobody said Russian interference was a hoax. * What was a hoax was that Trump colluded with the Russians. In fact, through Steele's Russian informers, it was Clinton who colluded with the Russians. Those informers of Christopher Steele were likely to be FSB (formerly called KGB). Putin was helping b...

Re: Why Socialists cannot see the truth (that Socialism does not work)

Socialism works very well Cass. Just not in the way it is generally advertised to work. You should think of it as an organized crime family. People in the family get want they want especially those at the top at the expense of those not part of the crime family I always equated Socialism to robbery...

Re: Why Socialists cannot see the truth (that Socialism does not work)

I always equated Socialism to robbery. If 60 people gang up to rob 40, it is considered a crime. But if 60 elect a government that taxes the 40 and redistribute the money to the 60, it is still a crime in my book. Boy, oh boy, cass! The way you keep harping on this same point over the years I have ...

Re: 'Why was there a civil war?' - more of Trump's wisdom.

I was under the impression that slavery was adopted by the US following a Russian propaganda campaign in favour of serfdom. But Americans felt that serfdom, being a Russian thing, was far too harsh and undemocratic and so opted for slavery instead... :D :? :idea: Well, bear in mind that back in Afr...
