re: Gregg Allman has entered hospice care - EA6B

re: Heard Dave Ramsey's daughter speak at a luncheon a few weeks ago - EA6B

re: Can pure Socialism work without magic technology? - EA6B
[quote]With capitalism, nothing gets done. Your work is given to enrich robber barons, so you never see the fruits of your labor. With socialism, you know that you have some minimum standard of care that you're working toward - so it can be beneficial. (see how easy it is to make stupid a...
