    But, that is a far cry from suggesting there is little difference between capitalism and communism, especially in a country that has been ravished by a murderous communist dictator.
    And what President Obama actually said is also a far cry from suggesting there is little difference between capitalism and communism. He just said that regardless of the theory involved, you have to go with what works. That doesn't come close to saying that there's little difference between the two systems.

    My favorite is the dumb asses that do that #resistcapitalism and they don't even realize that there wouldn't be a twitter or iphone for that matter for hashtags if not for capitalism.

    Typical liberal insanity.

    Look, it's not exactly being said, that capitalism sucks, is it? Only that it needs to be tempered with a balanced pursuit of social equality. Too much equality, society collapses, but too much capitalism, society also collapses, is the point. What is it about the principle of the golden mean you don't understand?

    Again:
    "The life expectancy of Cubans is equivalent to the United States, despite it being a very poor country, because they have access to health care. That's a huge achievement. They should be congratulated. But you drive around Havana and you see this economy is not working. It looks like it did in the 1950s. And so you have to be practical in asking yourself how can you achieve the goals of equality and inclusion, but also recognize that the market system produces a lot of wealth and goods and services. And it also gives individuals freedom because they have initiative."
    - Barack Obama, President of the United States

    You do not achieve the goals of equality and inclusion by allowing the government to control the economy, or even portions of the economy.

    That is what Obama was advocating for and that is a proven failed ideology, many times over.

    Except in Germany.

    It's when you let the money buggerers do what ever they want, that you wind up with Enron and WorldCom. Which was under Bush Junior, right? That's why we are in a recession now, not enough control in the US of A between 2001 and 2008. That's why you're broke and the dame doesn't wanna shag you.

    Trust me, you would have been be a lot worse off without Obama. You need to pick your battles.

    You're God damned right, I blame Bush. Bush was the worst president you guys have had since Buchanan. At a time when we needed somebody like Lincoln.
