    Of course, capitalism triumphs over communism socialism. The socialist desires materialistic wealth as much as the capitalist. The difference is, the socialist either isn’t willing or isn’t capable of doing something useful for others to gain these materialistic desires. So he works to change the rules, overturn competition and private property, in a manner that permits the taking of his desires from those who do earn theirs by producing something useful for others.

    Before the straw man is stuffed and raised, let’s put paid to the socialist who puts of the facade of capitalist while working to have the corrupt public official (but I repeat myself) to change the rules overturning open competition and secure private property. They are simply socialists who avoid the “working for the oppressed” rhetoric going straight to use of government to change the rules to their benefit.

    Amusing you speak of strawmen, JKB.

    Also amusing that you think “the rules” that the “socialist” wants to change are, before he gets his dirty mits on them, magically set up correctly. I suppose they spring forth fully-formed from the head of Zeus or something (I was going to say Smith, but I find that most people who fancy themselves hardcore capitalists don’t really have much use for Mr. Smith. He said far too many things that sound all socialistic and stuff).

    Socialists are just people who are sick and tired of the David Koch’s of the world buying and selling corrupt politicians and rigging the rules to their benefit.

    FTFY. You’ll get my bill in the mail.

    I got a chuckle out of Macy’s adopting a big red star logo not very long after the Soviet Union collapsed. I guess the consuming public has a short memory.

    @JKB: So, Socialists and Capitalists are both amoral, greed-driven d-bags who will happily destroy anyone or anything so long as they can say they made an extra two points this quarter – it’s just that Capitalists expect you to know you’re being shafted. Duly noted.

    Variations on a theme. The old commies were OK with selling others the rope they need to hang themselves. Better they should export medicine and peace than booze, rope and S-300s

    Thought the triumph was the Red Army Chorus backing the Leningrad Cowboy’s cover of Sweet Home Alabama
