Hi 1Glenn. Other than "relatives" who live in Scandinavia who don't understand the meaning of socialism, can you answer my question;

Can you name 1 example of a socialist state in history that wasn't a human tragedy?

Just one.

And the Scandanavian countries fit your and other rightist posters definitions of "socialist".

And right on cue, the lazy and of course, false rallying cry of "Scandinavia!".

High taxes do not equal socialism, my friend. Scandinavia has very strong property rights and lower corporate tax rates than even the US.

Tell any Scandanavian that they are living in a socialist country and they will be very surprised!

Again, can you name a single socialist state that wasn't an abject humanitarian disaster?

Howdy bob. More pertinent to this article, can you name a single example where trickle down, supply side economic policy resulted in anything but the enrichment of a tiny wealthy class? Has cutting corporate taxes ever helped?

Exhibit 1: The US during the Eisenhower/Kennedy years with 75% to 90% taxes on the highest earning and a booming middle class. And then the disaster of Reaganomics and the collapse of the middle class.

Hi dagon! Real GDP grew over one-third during Reagan's presidency, an over $2 trillion increase. The compound annual growth rate of GDP was 3.6% during Reagan's eight years, compared to 2.7% during the preceding eight years.

If thats a disaster, give it to us every year please.

The fact is, although free market capitalism isn't perfect (what is?) its the very best tried and true economic method the world has ever seen. As we’ve seen across continents, the freer an economy becomes, the less likely its people are to become entrapped in extreme poverty.

This can be corroborated by tracking the rise of “economic freedom,” which is related to the openness of a country’s markets and corresponding increases in living standards. Over the past 25 years, the global average economic freedom score—as calculated by the right-leaning Heritage Foundation—has increased by 3.2 percentage points, with many countries joining the ranks of at least the “moderately free.”

Indeed, global economic freedom has experienced a nearly six percent increase since 1995—after the Soviet Union’s collapse. Capitalism is more commonplace now than ever before.

But enough about that. Its very telling that both you and "Express sister" have yet to come up with a single socialist state that didn't result in a human tragedy.

Because there isn't.

I love this. “Things being fair is socialism”. Just a perfect insight into the mind of the right. Something that most people agree is good, fairness, is abhorrent to them. The idea of equality is anathema to GOP supporters. Maybe that’s why they’re so against rights for minorities.

Hi Express sister,

Can you name a single example of a socialist state that successfully created a fair playing field for all citizens?

Just one, please.

A perfect example of the incredible amount of mental illness out there in society that the pandemic has exposed. Many on this cite, too, on a daily basis absolutely scared of their own shadow and convinced that death is right around the next corner 24/7.

If you do not vaccinate your children you are putting them at great risk of death or permanent disability. The any vaccine movement is a like a medieaval death cult.

Mine has all the usual vaccinations. As I do.

The corona vaccines are not approved by the FDA and are only tolerated under emergency rules.

Anyone w a brain understands children are not at risk from corona, don't need it, and indeed would be putting their children health at risk if they injected them with it.

The only cult around are those who will do whatever the government tells them to do.

Sheep.

Not at all, since the risk of dying from the immunization are much less than dying from the disease (which by the way actually produce myocarditis on children). Specially because many children have an increased risk of actually dying from the disease and benefit from the immunization as part of the vulnerable population.

thats 180 degrees from the truth.

Death from Covid is practically unheard of in children so young. Almost totally nonexistent (except in a few cases where there were significant co-morbidities)

Going on a year and a half wrong at every turn, Rex.

That HAS to be some sort of record.

I imagine China taking it on the chin this week has been difficult as well.

imagine spending thousands of dollars to get an unapproved vaccine for a virus with a 99.9 survival rate - with no guarantee of getting back in.

This is not so much a pandemic as much as an enormous exposure of mental illness in society.

Posted in: COVID lab origin theory gains traction in U.S. See in context

so much to unravel here. The very credible claim from those in the know that the virus was from the Wuhan Lab has been around for over a year. Anyone with half a brain knew this. But because it 1. proves President Trump right, and/or 2. shines a light on the Chinese crime against humanity , it was called a right-wing conspiracy theory to shame those who suggested it.

Now the narrative has been allowed to see the light of day. The OK was given.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/05/25/timeline-how-wuhan-lab-leak-theory-suddenly-became-credible/

From that right-wing publication, the Washington Post.

Look at the names above that deny it even now, everyone. Remember them. Then ask yourself why they let themselves be compromised so badly and still allow it now after the truth has started to come out.

These are unserious people.

False. I saw the protest in its entirety. Perhaps 200 max. A dismal little number.

Im sure little Zainab thought long and hard about his "speech" and wasn't intimidated by his parents into doing so.

Where are they hiding the dead bodies that would come with such a scandal?

No need to hide them, just don't count them.

Osaka is reporting daily on people dying alone at home after being refused a space in hospitals.

The Japanese government refuses to conduct autopsies on those over 65.

Strange how only Osaka is reporting these deaths but nothing in Tokyo.

Are we to believe that in Japan's largest metropolitan area no one is being rejected a space in hospitals and no one is dying at home like in Osaka?

One has to really want to ignore reality to swallow that one.

and the domestic and international media is willfully ignoring this incredible scandal because..........?

Why target foreign news agencies to prevent them from reporting on what is happening inside Gaza.

even the most cursory of searches will tell you that Hamas was using the building as a military asset.

yeah no, we are really not. Israel Continues to illegally occupy large swaths of Palestinian land. I don't think they should have tolerate the abuse, but you're mind or the mindset that might makes right.

That said, land stealing by Israel was going on long before Hamas was a political force.

Thats an interesting way to say Israel only gave back 99% of the land they conquered after being simultaneously attacked by her neighbors.
