With socialism the government owns everything


NO! That's communism, socialists have private property as you would know if you knew anything about the world.

When you said. Obama and his husband wife, whatever it is.

That's pretty low. Mature people don't usually make fun of how people look. I bet your a lot of fun visiting with the elderly or in the burn ward of a hospital. If you ever insulted my wife like that You'd be in for an @$$ whooping.

No, there is no state in communism. Socialism is just the means of reaching Communism, and communism is just an advanced form of socialism. Both are used to overthrow Capitalism.

LOL Good thing I have my right to my opinion, I hear people bash politicians on here ALL the time, and your going to tell me you have shown the up most respect for every single politician and person in the WORLD and NEVER have said ANYTHING negative about ANYBODY???? Yeah ok, so your a saint, pffft, your purdy tough behind a keyboard. Grow some thick skin and stop being so sensitive, I can think what I want.
Whats also LOW is when that thing said "White people are the problem with America!" That is degrading to 70% of the American population, I dont care if you dont like the fact I insulted him or her, whatever...

Again it shows low intelligence and laziness to insult how someone looks. I've never insulted a politicians wife or family and never will. You'd be hard pressed to find a post on here where I insult anyone based on looks. Maybe on policy and that's where the focus should be.

I'm not a saint and I have no problem if you dislike the statement about white people being a problem. You should have an opinion on that and say she was wrong and why. But then you did it again when you said "him or her. whatever"

You know she's a woman, unless you're really stupid. If you look around she probably average looking compared to all american women, meaning she's in the middle. Are you then saying everyone who isn't as pretty as Michelle Obama is a man? That's really demeaning. Are you going to insult my grandmother because she's 70 and her hair is falling out and she doesn't have all of her teeth and has gained some weight due to her medication?

What kind of person does that?

That's really, really low. Either incredibly mean spirited or really uneducated and lazy. Which is it?

I didn't agree with Obama's policies but I most definitely didnt like his husband/wife because of how nasty of a personality him/her had, he/she blamed america's problems on white people. I dont like him/her and I have a right to my opinion so yeah, put that n your pipe and smoke it! Your wrong!

LOL There you go again.

Look this is relevant to this thread and ATS in general, because until we can stop with the petty insults, we'll never get to the place where we can actually discuss policy and what we need to do as a society to be a better country.


You can't stop insulting Obama's wife, not on policy or the things she did, but by her looks. Wouldn't it be terrible if we all insulted Barbara Bush or Nancy Reagan or any of our other first ladies all the time?

We've got to grow up and stop acting like we're in kindergarden. If you're old enough to be on ATS you should have matured before now? Not sure why you haven't?

I really dont care who you or anybody insults, it's just words, Why do you care so much if I dont like who she is as a person or how she looks? I have that right dont I? its you and most everybody else that's sensitive and cares, I honestly can care less who you insult, it's just words that people allow to get hurt by, just saying. If im so immature then why do you insist on chatting with me?

Private property ... right up until someone decides you have too much of it for you own good because no one "needs" that much of something, and then the government takes some or all of it to redistribute for the collective good.

The Swiss are very successful with the Allmende in agriculture, commons aint a bad thing. But if you prefer corporate fences cuz some socialist might take your barbie doll collection, we'll simply shut up and let the 1% decide what's best for us.

Sure!

If I owned some of these Barbies and it was determined that it was not "fair" because others did not also own them so the government decided to take them to redistribute them (or their approximate collective value while vaulting the actual dolls), then yeah.

Let me try it another way.

Are we all familiar with the story of the Little Red Hen? You know. The little hen finds some wheat that has fallen off a truck, and she thinks she could eat that wheat right away -or- she could instead plant it and grow it into more wheat and when the time is right harvest it, mill it, and bake some yummy bread.

She opts for the second route, and she and her family toil long and hard all summer on this. At every stage, they ask the other animals if they would like to help out with the labor, but none of the other barnyard animals will. They're all too "busy" with other tasks like lying in the sun.

When the time comes and the wonderful bread comes out of the oven, the hen asks one more time who would like to help she and her family eat the bread. Of course, then every animal would absolutely love to and they all have time, but the hen says, No! None of you helped work to make it, and now none of you will help eat it either."

In a socialist state in reality, the animals would all whine to the farmer that it's not fair that the evil 1% chickens have bread while none of them do, and that the chickens stole it from them. So the farmer could confiscate the bread, take 2/3 of it, give 1/3 back to the hen and her family, and divide the 2/3 up for the other animals. None of the animals would have enough to have more than the chickens, so they'd still be mad at the greedy chickens. However, there wouldn't really be enough left for the chickens to feel like any of the hard work was worth it.

So, the next time the little red hen finds wheat on the side of the road? She just eats it.

Really?

Not everyone made an effort and most of the barnyard was without bread. It's actually a good story for capitalism and how if you don't work, you don't eat.

I don't see it that way, if everyone helped, the job would have easier and they all would have shared the bread . The animals in this story weren't starving and didn't need the bread, so in this case the bread was a labor of love.
