    Explain to me how something that has never existed could kill millions?

    A communist government is a oxymoron. It can't exist. Communism by definition has no government.

    Stalinism is the word your looking for. Their is a huge difference.... Stalinism is actually closer to fascism or capitalism then anything because of the symbiosis of state and private entity's that will always form in all three...

    This is the only way we will ever break the cycle. The key is education. America is going in the opposite direction by privatizing education. This works poorly at best, or not at all at worst.

    What does not make sense? Do you not know how to read?

    The upper middle class and upper classes should be taxed more on capital gains and a few other places. Not less.

    LOL Your just jealous because you couldn't afford to live in that "ghetto". Real estate prices are skyrocketing in NYC.

    The cost of a Manhattan apartment has finally topped the record set shortly before the 2008 economic collapse, a new report says.

    Residential real-estate sales during the first three months of 2014 sent the average price of a Manhattan address surging to an all-time high of $1.7 million, according to the Halstead Property real-estate firm.

    The previous record of $1.6 million was set during the first quarter of 2008.

    Halstead’s latest “Manhattan Market Report,” released Monday, says more than 2,300 condos and co-ops changed hands between January and March, with sellers raking in 98-plus percent of their asking prices.

    Co-ops commanded an average $1.2 million, while the average price for a condo was almost $2.4 million, the report says.

    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...
    I am all for fixing the schools...There was a real program to do just that effectively in DC, and libs squashed it...As for blaming welfare, it is what it is...If there wasn't such graft in the system, and pols using it for votes creating generational poverty then we might be closer to agreement. But, people wouldn't starve, we have no objection to those really in need of help of getting that help because that's who we are in this country. But we don't like being scammed, and that's what your ilk does.

    Are you a product of the public education system? I am thinking yes, so on that part at least you're correct.

    How did you fit that on a sign?

    Have you considered asking for a significant change in the black thug culture where violence is a far less acceptable option and for thugs to face trial for their actions when they kill someone who isn't using lethal force themselves?

    Most young black men are killed by other young black men.
