    Because Marxism was just like the tax rates of the 1990s in the US. I catch your drift!

    It is a lie.

    I see you still can't grasp it, well don't sweat it, the American people have it figured out!

    Exactly why we need to both cut spending and increase taxes on the rich, that is the only way we have ever significantly reduced the deficit in the last 30 years.

    Here is what Turtle said in 1267



    black/white = RACE

    This is getting beyond amazing.

    I am willing to bet a lot of money that if Turtle made a post using the analogy of horses, and I said it was out of place, it never would have been mentioned again. But because the warriors of the far right are hyper sensitive and are on a mission to remove any discussion of race from the lexicon, they jumped on this with bared talons and fangs dripping with vitriolic acid.

    And continue to do so peppered with enough intellectual fraud to make an honest man gag.
    Intellectual fraud? Yes, he said black and white. You were the first to use the term race. You introduced the word race into this thread.

    You are part of the problem, mate, and therefore responsible.
    You are making no sense.

    If you wanna claim some national debt as your own - welcome to the jungle. But leave me out of your extremist fantasies.

    I find it difficult to believe you are serious.

    Black people - white people mentioned twice by Turtle... they are part of race in America. Turtle intoroduced that subject of race.

    And thank you for answering my question about you being intentionally obtuse. A one- hundred foot YES carved into the side of a mountainside could not have been clearer.

    You folks on the right want to do anything you damn well please about the mention of race in any irresponsible fashion you want to but you get all hot and bothered when you get called on it.

    All I know is that you were the first to use the word race in this thread. Way to go.

    If that is all you know you have just identified your intellectual shortcomings to the world.

    Nice job.

    Now "race" is a dirty word?? Post after post trying to pin using the word "race" on someone?? I don't care what you point to, Centinel. One thing I know: Haymarket is not a racist. OMG.
