Tick tock...tick tock...

Still waiting on someone, anyone to get back to me on why Barak Barry Hussein Soetoro Obama's plans for wealth distribution is not socialism.
I'm taking any reasoned, well-phrased response here...
I know you're out there... Don't make me start calling on people from the class.
The questions will just get harder.

And just to short circuit any half-assed copy & paste from the '08 Oh-Bama' playbook...
Don't be coming at me with the old "It wasn’t, because socialism calls for State ownership of the means of production, and The One has never advocated any such thing."

What a load of legalistic hair-splitting!

Wealth redistribution is the sine qua non of all socialist models—ownership of production is simply the means to that end—and whether The Messiah wants to get there by the Fed owning General Electric or by 90% tax rates is irrelevant.


Anytime someone talks about the government taking wealth from one group and redistributing said takings among another group who didn’t work for it, that person is a socialist.

Redistribution of wealth is what The One supports, that’s what he’s always supported, and that makes him a socialist.

TBG, Still waiting...

i'm a lazy american just waiting for my utopia to kick in, so you'll find no coherent thoughts here. But I thought this was a nice article.

“we’re set up, unlike other states in the union, where it’s collectively Alaskans own the resources. So we share in the wealth when the development of these resources occurs.”

A quote from YOUR (meaning Conservative) Messiah

$3269 per person to each Alaskan.

Here is a quote from Andy "marx" Doremus on my blog: "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs."

Looks as if Palin has been reading some Karl Marx.

But... I got this from a Liberal Media source so it has to be wrong.

OK, Third round of Tequila is on me. Can't wait until the Masters!
