It's funny that people cite McDonald's and Wal-Mart, yet everyone empowers them by spending their money there.


I never eat at McDonald's and I never shop at Wal-Mart.

When I was a young teenager I ate McDonald's. I have never shopped at Wal-Mart (and they have always been in my area).

I didn't list them in my list because I was just listing ones that hadn't been listed. I definitely think Macdonald's and Wal-Mart should be on the list tho!!

And I agree the Tobacco companies, such as Phillip Morris are wretched as well. Seeing the move 'The Insider'?

One thing's for sure, you're behaving like a raving nationalist, and believe in drawing little lines around pieces of real estate and defending them to the death rather than sharing all wealth equally for all human beings.

And you are behaving like a raving socialist and believe in distributing other people's money.


What about that? What about caps on personal wealth?

Sorry, but capitalism is American and always has and what has made the U.S. a superpower. If you believe in wealth distribution then you are a socialist.

Why should you be able to take my money or land and give it to others? That is very selfish of you. Go out and earn your own money. Taking other people's hard earned money is stealing and selfish.


Who made you God, anyway.

What does this have to do with the price of cheese?
How is wanting to keep what I earn 'God-like'?

Raises his hand.

And proud of it.



I love how people demonize all political philosophies they don't belong too... even if it offers a more efficient or better approach to a given societal issue.

You're right. Capitalism is very American. Without it, we wouldn't have grown to be the size we are. But eventually you reach a stagnant point, and the growth Capitalism relies on is no longer there, and a new system needs to come in. *Puts on his Socialists' gardening gloves*

I would not be proud of being a socialist. Socialism has been tried in numerous other countries and it never works for multiple reasons. One reason is socialism leads to marxism and communism. Another reason is in the philosophy itself. Think about it.......Socialism ideally distributes wealth so everyone is on the same page right.

One problem with socialism is that eventually there is no more money to distribute. Then you are # out of luck. Plus, it's just selfish to think that other people owe you there hard earned money.

Besides, since you admit capitalism has gotton us this far, why would you want to change a good thing?

[1] And you are behaving like a raving socialist and believe in distributing other people's money.
[2] Sorry, but capitalism is American and always has and what has made the U.S. a superpower. If you believe in wealth distribution then you are a socialist.
[3]Taking other people's hard earned money is stealing and selfish.
[4]How is wanting to keep what I earn 'God-like'?


[1] Socialism is far superior to capitalism. Capitalism is a synonym for 'central bank' of privately owned investors using slave and/or underpaid labor. When you were nursing at your mother's breast, that was socialism, partner. NOT capitalism. When your mother changed your diapers, that was socialism, NOT capitalism. You mustn't forget your roots. Corporatism is fascism by definition. Fascism is the sworn enemy of democracy. Take a look at this post, where kids in Germany and Greenland and France and Holland get up to $100,000 free from their governments -- rather than the biggest thieves ending up with all the money: Is it true EVERY German child in Germany gets 800euros a month free? 'http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread358391/pg1'

[2] CAPITALISM IS NOT AMERICAN -- the american revolution was SPECIFICALLY AGAINST Bank of England capitalism and taxation without representation. The frontier was COMMUNAL SOCIALISM -- everyone had to depend on each other for survival.

[3] That's why capitalism is evil -- it steals people's lifeforce and makes them slaves and takes the fruit of their labor.

[4] You're right, if you're excessive, it's not god-like at all, it's SATANIC. You seem to believe in the false religion of 'survival of the fittest' and 'limited resources' ... how do you sleep at night? have you even taken a moment to pause and FEEL all the murder in the world as the result of greed and capitalism? Or, have you lost the ability to FEEL, or, never had it. Or are really a good guy in masquerading as a dirty capitalist. Or, are you a clean capitalist.

It all depends on your character, if you are 'good' or 'bad', have the best in mind for ALL of mankind, or just for yourself.

Which are you?

I know you're totally a patient person, since you're patient with me. So, thanks. I know there's a lot of good in you. I just fear you're under the illusion that there's not enough good to go around, therefore, rule of force i.e. capitalism is good .... whereas nurturing children FOR FREE is socialism, and is BAD.

You don't even know what socialism and communism is -- you're just a victim of mind control and if you're not careful, we might think you get off on the misery of people just waving your flag and working yourself over for capitalism.

I don't really like Microsoft because they impose what you can use or not use on your computer. People are so used to the Windows operating system that they don't know that there are other options out there. With open source and all. But they're saying that they're going to make Windows XP open source. Let's see what happens but yeah....

Microsoft

What's your alternative, WT??

Let the Rich keep getting more Rich??

Are you, WT, part of the Elite already????

Do you have a 10,000 square foot house in Beverly Hills, and
a vacation lodge in the Rockies?? AND, a private jet, to fly to meet where your yacht is moored?????

Oh....well, you aren't starving yet....you're just barely learning about how people have to clip their own toe nails.....

Capitalism has been shown to be....a broken concept. But, keep feeding yourselve all of the cow patties that make you feel better about the current 'system'...


Not to say Socialism is any better....see, problem is, both systems are ripe for exploitation.

Please divise something better, that actually works for everyone!!!

edit for typos....

You are blaming the wrong person. You should be blaming the government for increasing corporate taxes and regulation so high that they are forced to move in order to stay in business.


YOU appear to be the government, just look at your avatar. YOU should be blamed.

Really? Care to back that up?
Then please tell me of another current superpower who's economy is based on socialism? Sorry, but it has been tried in the past and has always failed.

It has failed because eventually you run out of other people's money to redistribute.


[2] CAPITALISM IS NOT AMERICAN

Are you into revisionist history or something.
Of course capitalism is American. It always has and always will.


[3] That's why capitalism is evil -- it steals people's lifeforce and makes them slaves and takes the fruit of their labor.

Okay, that makes absolutely no sense.
Socialism is evil because it steals people's hard earned money and gives it to the government to redistribute to others.

Boy, you have it backwards.
Since the U.S. and it's people are very wealthy because of capitalism compared to most other nations, the U.S. has been able to give more aid and help then any other nation. So, yes, I feel good and sleep well at night. No other country in the world with the power of the U.S. has been able to do more good in the world than America. It's all thanks to capitalism.

Microsoft and bill gates need to be divested. All their 'profit' is 'our loss'. Bill Gates billions need to be redistributed.

F*ck! He gives his money to USAID allegedly for 'aids' research in Africa. USAID is part of the intelligence community that brought aids to africa in the first place!

Phillip Morris


I have a post for you that you might enjoy, it's about the European Union and South American suing Reynolds Tobacco for laundering heroin money with Camel cigarettes -- it's written by a former director of HUD who was forced out of private business by the same firm that represented Camels, )which was the same firm that started the private prison industry).

It's No 3 at this address 'The top 3 unknown conspiracies of our lifetimes': www.abovetopsecret.com...


Star for you, thanks for linking this. I'll read it tonight for sure!

In-laws. Seriously, it's the company that I hate the most.


I'll add to that - MERCK (I think that's how it's spelled), the pharmacutical giant that killed all those poor VIOXX people and is now trying to kill off all the young girls in this country with that alleged anti-cancer vaccination.

And STARBUCKS. Their coffee is really bad and it charges outrageous prices. Oh .. and they are bringing back their old logo - which is ugly.
