I think its not possible in our lifetime, but that's irrelevant to what it actually is.

    Capitalism is based solely on greed.

    So communism is for people that care about others, and capitalism is for greedy dicks.

    And again why would he sue fox for calling him communist? If that's really how he felt, why not defend the point? Oh wait its because he's not communist...
    He says he is.... Oh, and "communism is utopia"??? I'm pretty sure the millions killed in its wake would disagree.

    I think there are a lot of things that need to be done. Poverty proves to be extremely difficult to break in this country (I saw on this board that the correlation between the class you were born in and the class you die in was higher in the US than any other industrialized nation?). As do the cycles of drug, physical, and emotional abuse.

    Those are all good starts.

    We have to first examine why that is....For example...There is nothing that says just because you were born poor, that you have to remain that way...This country provides opportunity all the time..

The reason is most blacks realize they can't fix a problem with the same issue.

    Our government does not understand that though. That's why we keep bombing ME and purveying capitalism. A horrendously classiest system of government that dispraportionatly effects Black's because of recent racism and the poverty it caused.
    that, like most of your posts, makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    Agreed. I think the research we are doing into those areas will yield great results sometime in the future when we understand them better, and how to preempt them.

    Compared to what we produce in this country the people get screwed.

    Or ya know, fix the schools.... That would really be the thing to do... Universal schools....

    When will you cons realize that blaiming welfare is not only a losing policy politically, but that people would starve without it? Both white and black...
