7 Yips for “imprisoned by poverty”

    Platitudes of a
    Marxist rabble-rouser don’t
    conquer the hunger.

    What an odd comment. Care to elaborate, Dave?

    Marxism is the very misguided way of our country right now, as mandated by elitist know-nothings. As it has been every time it’s been tried before in world history, Marxism here is a disastrous failure. To the point of my odd comment, it hurts the very people it purports to assist worst of all.

    Elitist’s “smart” (just ask them) response? Foot hard on the accelerator – more of the same on the backs of future generations. It’s the Marxist’s excuse every time: *next* time we’ll implement it right. These religious zealots can’t face the fact that the doctrine itself is to blame.

    I’m not aware of any Marxists in power at the local, state or federal level.

    Reread your “Communist Manifesto” (if you can stomach the worst piece of literary garbage ever written), and tell me specifically which Marxist direction we’re not headed in aggressively?

    I prefer you tell me, since you appear to be well-versed on the subject.

    I can lead you to water… I’ve already read it once recently, and once is enough in my lifetime of that dismiss-all-historical-greats, just-listen-to-my-drivel Karl Marx. If you prefer to better understand direct consequences of said drivel, read Anne Applebaum’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “Gulag”.
