Banning profits is just assinine.
Do you think that as society and our species evolves and grows that eventually profit will be tossed aside as the barbaric idea it is, and we will
worry more about each other as humans?
We are not to that point yet, but eventually we will concern ourselves more with the welfare of our neighbors than the value of a holographic
financial system and it's flaws.
The people that say "people need a hand-up, not a hand-out" have absolutely no clue what it's like to be in the shoes of someone else. Usually
it's middle-class white men that say that. Of course, they have never been a single mother. They have never been a black man from the hood that has
no chance to find a hand-up....let alone a hand-out.
At least the Democrats can see what is coming in the future. The Republicans are still stuck in the 1800's. Well, if they can't see the writing on
the wall....... leave em behind!
Time to hammer you now
1) one day...but then again, one day we may live in computers and eat lasers...daydreaming of a better future is fine, but lets focus on what is going
on today. today I don't give a rats butt what someone across town or country is doing, I am worried about me and my own, I want air conditioning,
clean water, and decent clothes. I want I want etc..and because I want, I need to do.
Now, if my family wants, well, I want for my family..so my wants extend to friends and family and profiting off them is not my focus...but some random
dude wanting my jacket because he finds it cool..well, he can pay me for it, and enough to make it worth my while, or get his own...I don't have to
give my jacket to anyone whom finds it cool (I may however give it to someone whom truely needs it, life and death thing, but its rarely at that level
as we are a advanced/rich society).
2) People need a hand up, not a hand out..actually, its both. give a man a fish, he eats for a day, teach him to fish, he will eat for a lifetime. I
say give a man a fish and teach him to fish while having lunch...both are important to the process of independence.
3) I ally with the Dems moreso than the repubs because I see them as more forward thinking, yes..but to say the dems see the future while the reps are
stuck in the past..thats being a bit simplistic and also grossly generalizing both sides. There are those dems whom would love to ban oil and coal,
not understanding that would ultimately shove us back in caves and starving and dying from exposure...that is not seeing the future, that is
shockingly blind...luckily the more thinking types in the party margainalize and dismiss them, pushing them away from the mic. So, do be careful when
painting a entire party...plenty of fruits and nuts on the left.
