    exactly, some people side with the rich (even though they aren't) and some side with middle class. Its class warfare, except only one side knows its a war( rich).

    in a war you destroy your enemy
    in a capitalist society an employer's profitability would certainly be damaged
    if he killed his employees and customers?

    help me out here jag how do you measure wealth
    thereby allowing you to decide who the Rich are?
    in a war targeting the enemy is crucial, right?

    Don't know much biology
    Don't know much about a science book
    Don't know much about the French I took.

    what a wonderful world this could be

    Look at calm he's like such a commie luver
    I can only imagine if he was to go live in North Korea or Cuba for a decade
    how his tune might change just a lil bit? (if he survived).
    My Reply:

    Can you name me one single country in the universe which attempted to enjoy a form of True Socialism (nationalization of country resources) and which the U.S. Capitalists did not immediately set out to destroy with sanctions or military might?

    The U.S. Capitalists can't handle a competitive economic system because they would lose.

    Comparisons would be made and any success would encourage socialism.

    You mention North Korea .... China will never allow the reunion of North and South Korea because the U.S. Capitalists will move military bases at the NorthKorea/China border just like they did with the collapse of the Soviet Union and where the U.S. put military bases into several former USSR states.

    'fraid you meant to say Communist not socialist country?

    "U.S. Capitalists did not immediately set out to destroy"

    other than Japan & Germany in WWII (which we rebuilt) no not really cain't think of any countries we destroyed but them
    South Koreans sure as heck are doing a daumn sight better than their brothers up North eh?

    So tell me how a reunification of the two Koreas would look, like when east and west germany got back together?

    Angry Ol' Guy:

    Nevermind .... I guess you have your views and I have mine and we will never agree on much.

    I quite understand since you are an American. Nationhood is strong. I would guess that my attacking U.S. Capitalism would very much feel to me like you bad-mouthing Canada health care.
