"Scourge of the Interwebs"
Still a capitalist society, not a socialist one. Guess you and I will never agree Ronni, but I love you anyway!! http://www.nytimes.com/2007/01/21/magazine/21Sanders.t.html"But would Americans ever accept the kinds of taxes that finance the Scandinavian welfare state?"
This society is capitalism run rampant. Why the hell should 1% of the population control hundreds of millions while I can't afford to go to a doctor?I pay taxes to support their stupid war. I'd happily pay taxes to have some medical insurance.People on SSI are paying $200/month for Medicare, and that's even without the prescription coverage.I cannot see how anyone can think that's right.I love you, too, Wyn, but you are going to feel very used when you find out how badly your system has let you down.
Wow, that's a great vid. I love capitalism: without it, I and nobody else would ever have hope for advancement. However, the way things are now, capitalism is standing in the way of people doing exactly that. How can anybody advance when there's no money for food, homes, nor education: both required (K-12) and college (I can BARELY afford it, and I'm going to probably start outside life in debt)? Not to mention energy costs that sap the money from people that could otherwise be spent on necessities described above.Love,BrendanPS: Sorry 'bout the laundry. I just had way too many clothes!
