Oh, yes, and people put in charge of things would not be called "Czars". That right there is an indication of a NOT socialist country.

I don't suppose anyone would care to vouchsafe the y-man a clue as to what part of this quote is the least bit racist...

Apparently, the imperative to vouchsafe is not writ anywhere in the Fristians DNA.

His father wasn't a citizen, and his mother apparently wasn't old enough to transmit citizenship to Obama according to the law at that time.

Yeah speaking of that, I'm not entirely convinced that "The genetic imprint writ large in his 43 predecessors is missing from the Obama DNA" is even grammatical.

Even if it is, I'm curious as to who his supposed 43rd predecessor is.

Well, there's the solution. I'm sure there's some left over Grover Cleveland DNA with American culture writ in it. Just give Obama a transplant and we're set.

ETA: OMG WHO KNOWS WHAT MIGHT BE WRIT IN THE MUSSELMAN DNA FROM DARKEST INDONESIA! NOT AMERICA, THAT'S FOR SURE!

I was about to post that "racist" is often just a floating signifier for something someone doesn't like, but wait a minute:
He is our first president without an instinctive appreciation of the culture, history, tradition, common law and literature whence America sprang. The genetic imprint writ large in his 43 predecessors is missing from the Obama DNA.
LOL, instinctive appreciation of the culture? genetic imprint? Obama DNA? Did Don Black of Stormfront hack into Pruden's blog?

And then Pruden goes on to portray Obama as reacting to the Churchill bust with minstrel show Black English:
He no doubt meant no offense in returning that bust of Churchill ("Who he?")
... and top that off with "Kenya simply routed Kansas." :lol:

Pruden's usually more milquetoast with the racist tropes. It was he who sacked late white nationalist Samuel Francis back in 1995:
Editor in Chief Wesley Pruden fired Francis in September, 1995, after conservative journalist Dinesh D'Souza described his appearance at the 1994 American Renaissance conference:

A lively controversialist, Francis began with some largely valid complaints about how the Southern heritage is demonized in mainstream culture. He went on, however, to attack the liberal principles of humanism and universalism for facilitating "the war against the white race." At one point he described country music megastar Garth Brooks as "repulsive" because "he has that stupid universalist song, in which we all intermarry." His fellow whites, he insisted, must "reassert our identity and our solidarity, and we must do so in explicitly racial terms through the articulation of a racial consciousness as whites . . . . The civilization that we as whites created in Europe and America could not have developed apart from the genetic endowments of the creating people, nor is there any reason to believe that the civilization can be successfully transmitted to a different people."
More Francis:
...Francis wrote a column complaining about implicit miscegenation in a skit about Desperate Housewives aired during ABC's Monday Night Football. Francis vigorously denounced the advertisement, which featured sexual innuendo between a black football player and a white actress, arguing that "[t]he point was...to hurl a pie...in the face of...white racial and cultural identity." The advertisement, shockingly to Francis, implicitly argued that "interracial sex is normal and legitimate," an idea that Francis sees as "fairly radical." Francis went on to argue that "breaking down the sexual barriers between the races is a major weapon of cultural destruction."

It has been for quite some time. "Big Government" is not necessarily a hallmark of socialism. Looking at what the Government actually DOES is a good way to figure out what sort of government it is.

This one:
Makes the cutting of wages and jobs a requirement for "help" for troubled companies
Cuts educational funds ("hard decisions and sacrifices")
Cuts unemployment (over the course of decades)
Cuts access to healthcare (and consults with the insurance industry when "redesigning" health care access)
Wages pre-emptive war
Continues to detain people without pressing charges
Continues to export people for "special interrogation"
Continues to not prosecute war criminals in order to cover its own part in it all

No so much socialist.
Most of what you wrote has nothing whatsoever to due with economics. Some of it is outright lies about the current situation.

Quote:
Socialism refers to any one of various economic theories of economic organization advocating state or cooperative ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods, and a society characterized by equal opportunities/means for all individuals with a more egalitarian method of compensation based on the full product of the laborer.

Don't just look at how bloated government is; look at who actually benefits from it and at whose expense. I'm not a Marxist, but the famous question posed by Lenin works so well: "Who—whom?" Is the "socialist" military being used to expropriate the wealth of big oil and take their co-conspirators abroad to account or to protect and expand their wealth and smash their competition and critics abroad? Are billionaire financiers fleeing in terror of this Big Government or are they manipulating it for their own purposes? Is big agribusiness fleeing for greener pastures abroad or is it busy receiving patents for crop genes on a silver platter and wielding this Big Government as a club to smash smaller and weaker competition? Why does assistance provided by these "socialist" stimulus packages go almost entirely to people who are already wealthy? Why does this "black radical" government crack down on welfare queens who live in crack houses, but not the corporate welfare queens who live in penthouses? Why does this "socialist" government spend billions incarcerating gangsters who operate on the scale of neighborhoods to burglarize homes for their ends only to spend billions more to serve and to protect international gangsters who operate on a global scale to destroy entire countries for their ends? Perhaps you think these inmates come mostly from the bourgeoisie and aristocracy:



When it comes to the liberal-capitalist system, think of official government as more like middle management than the board of directors.

Government is now, always will be, and always has been a tool of the elite.

The sad thing is when the average honest caring person believes the lie that government is the solution to societal inequities.

Yeah, really.

Because it is so obvious that in countries with more state intervention in the economy, like the Scandinavian ones, they have this huge differences between rich and poor, whereas in the US for instance there is barely a difference.

Now, if you are going down that road...

If there was no America, Scandinavia would be under either Nazi or Communist control.

Not having to fund one's defense does make it easier, no?

And if there was no France the US would have remained a colony.

And if the moon was made of cheese the mold would extend to beyond Jupiter.

Norway and Sweden are actually pretty big spenders on 'defense' per citizen. They have very small populations, so it doesn't show up on the radar.

But you never let any facts get in the way, did you?

And what you call defense of the US, I call an empire.
