I guess British humor goes over your head as well. Personally, I adore John Cleese and think Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey are unfunny idiots, but clearly, we have differences.Still, despite your unidimensional irony meter, you don't see the irony in the link I sent in my follow-up where trailer trash (yes) say they are leaving the US and moving to Australia? You don't think there's a connection to your philosophy?
Oh, and MJ, when you preach to trailer trash about the merits of the Austrian School, please make sure they know the difference between Austria and Australia. Not to mention the fact that Austria is a social (read: socialist) democracy. http://www.buzzfeed.com/jwherrman/37-people-who-say-theyre-moving-to-australia-if-o?s=mobile
Clearly the Austrian School skips the lesson on irony. I should have known better than to expect some intelligence on the matter.
Question: If the Austrian school of Economics is so great, why isn't it in practice in Austria?   http://www.aaro.org/aaro-around-the-world/246       That sounds pretty damn close to exactly the system I'm in support of for the US.
****. You mention socialism and some completely ignorant moron talks about Soviet Russia. Inevitable. And it completely explains the idiocy that drives Republican Conservativism.
One of the biggest problems is that by claiming that it's the "more free shit" Democrats that won the election, the Republicans are completely ignoring the large numbers of highly educated, intelligent, fully employed "Krugman Democrats" who look at the trickle down model and recognize failure.
  So you aren't in agreement with the social conservatives that "activist judges" on the Supreme court are a problem? So you do understand now that that's how the system is supposed to work? Or do you think the Executive and Judicial branches have both expanded at the expense of the Legislative? If that's the case, then please explain how Obama has been obstructed so much in the last four years if the Legislative have no power.   Do you think the expansion of the...
Amazing. You say the above, yet you reject the notion that a pretty fair number of people vote against Obama for no reason except that he's black.
I am a socialist, and that's not by assumption, nor is it by theory, nor is it by any ambition for my own profit at the expense of others, or for the profit of my nation at the expense of other nations. I simply want as many people to be cared for as possible. I am a humanist.   I am a socialist, and I take my position by OBSERVATION.   I observe what has happened due to the rise of supply-side economics during the Reagan era, and it is not progress.   I...
Face it, MJ. You would be much much happier if taxes were slashed even if it meant poor people starving and people rioting and turning to other crime (though you have bought into the disproved theory that that doesn't happen, and that somehow rich people's prosperity does "trickle down" to the masses), than you would if taxes were raised and poor people were as happy as they are in Denmark and Holland, and the economy recovers as a result of the spending of those happy...
