<quoted text>Right that is True Socialism and as society evolves it will either evolve into A Communist or Capitalist Society.
Even Lenin felt that way which according to Lenin,“He who does not work shall not eat” is a necessary principle under socialism, the preliminary phase of the evolution towards communist society. The phrase appears in his 1917 work, The State and Revolution. Through this slogan Lenin explains that in socialist states only productive individuals could be allowed access to the articles of consumption.
In Lenin’s writing, this was not so much directed at lazy or unproductive workers, but rather the bourgeoisie.(Marxist theory defines the bourgeoisie as the group of those who buy the labor-power of workers and engage it in the process of production, deriving profits from the surplus value thus expropriated. Once communism was realised, that is, after the abolition of property and the law of value, no-one would live off the labor of others.)
Neither did the principle apply to those rendered incapable of work by old age or disability. These groups would have a right to society's products because they were not at fault for their condition. The elderly, in particular, had worked during their youth, and so could not be denied life’s basic necessities. The Soviet state accordingly provided a basic level of social security.
In reality, the resulting lack of motivation and productivity was illustrated by one of the more famous Russian political jokes, "the authorities pretend they are paying wages, workers pretend they are working."
He who does not work, neither shall he eat
He who does not work, neither shall he eat is a Biblical aphorism derived from II Thessalonians 3:10, which became a slogan for new colonies and socialist societies.

You are a confused individual.

If anyone can be blamed for ignoring the many warnings about an impending housing market collapse, it is the democrats.

If anyone can be blamed for defending Fannie and Freddie and lying to the American public that there was absolutely no problem, it is the democrats.

If anyone can be blamed for controlling congress and the purse strings for two years before the bottom fell out and two years afterwards, it is the democrats.

What happened decades ago is done and over.

The world as we once knew it has changed. Democrats had their turn at bat even though they are as much to blame, if not more, for getting us to this point. If you can't see where we are now under their leadership and where we're going if people like you continue to believe their lies and deception, you are the problem.

It's the people, not the ones they elect, who are the problem.

Obama, the douche, most corrupt administration in history. Sadly half of our present population are ignorant and stupid. They're called liberals.
We can only hope they will give themselves enough rope to hang their ideology and their lies and deception finally exposed.

It's the people I'm worried about. The blind are leading the blind and the blind are electing them.

Things are becoming very precarious. Half the country is totally oblivious or tiptoeing through the tulips which is a land mine field.

<quoted text> Green Energy? Ahhh... so that's ANOTHER magic hopey-changey disappearance act of Obama's Stimulus Extravaganza...
You are missing the main points.

That TARP ($737 billion) was the bail-out passed by Bush.

And ARRA ($831 billion) was the bail-out passed by Obama.

Of ARRA's $831 billion, only $27.2 billion went to green energy projects or 3.2%.

Some of that 3.2% was spent on boondoggles, I'll admit. But you were wrong in suggesting a major part of ARRA funding went in this direction.

He has a pattern of contradicting himself. Does he do this on purpose or does he really think we're all this stupid? And not just the ones who apparently are.

carol, honey, you said you weren't leaving. Then you said you were leaving. You said you "gave up." Then you said you would never give up. It's sort of like your politics: you say one thing... then you do another. Whore. You'd do anything for money wouldn't you dear? You're a republican: you'll do absolutely anything for spare change - pun intended. Slut.

You conservatives are fond of touting capitalism in its pure laissez-faire form.

As I recall, there was a very dark side to it. For example 12-hour a day, six-days-a-week child labor for pennies an hour. Employers had no responsibility for unsafe conditions in the workplace. If a worker lost a hand to an electric saw, he had no recourse. And was typically fired and replaced.

Drugs were unregulated. There were no health standards for canned goods, meat and poultry.

These issues were not addressed until enough progressive-minded politicians were elected to office and passed laws ending such conditions.
