You mistake your wife for a hat.
Because Sanders actually labels himself as a Socialist, that completely dismantles the "Commie" attack vector that the Republicans are rather eager to use.
You mean "validates". It validates the attack.
It does not surprise me in the least to see that on a site that leans as hard to the right as slashdot, Hillary Clinton is winning this poll by a wide margin.
Slashdot? Lean to the right? Ahahahahaha!
The candidate who is gaining the most traction against her right now is Bernie Sanders.
Who is at least honest. A bumbling idiot, but an honest and well-meaning one. Hillary Clinton is intelligent, but has no other redeeming qualities whatsoever.
Even more so, if a socialist starts to get attention, then Americans might start to understand what socialism actually is
Look, unlike Bernie Sanders, we're not complete idiots. We know that socialism doesn't work, can't work, has never worked, and will never work. It's been tried. It failed. Move on already.
Having a government try to completely control an economy right down to owning all the businesses and land and deciding on everyone's employment and housing does lead to certain economic inefficiencies.
Catastrophic and insoluble ones, yes. J. B. S. Haldane (himself a communist) pointed that out as far back as 1926.
There are poor capitalist countries. There are rich capitalist countries. There are poor communist countries.
There are no rich communist countries.
What matters is whether the government is focused on getting out of the lives of ordinary people.
Come to NJ
Thanks, but I'm busy that day. Got a thing...
But look at Venezuela. They have a socialist government now and everything is just peachy.
So long as you don't want jobs. Or food. Or toilet paper.
All the affected people have to do is change their fingerprints.
It's still a communist dictatorship. Nothing's going to improve until that changes.
I'm running Linux on a RAID-0 SSD array.
I guess I should turn off fstrim until there's a backport of the fix to Fedora?
TFA needs top stop being idiotic drivel so that it's worth reading.
Wow. Wish I could upmod you.
Diabetes, alzheimers, arthritis... Is there anything sugar can't do?
I'm 46. When I was a baby, I was diagnosed with celiac disease. And I knew kids who had nut allergies.
You can argue that the incidence of the allergies has increased, but to suggest that they were nonexistent until GMOs is just laughable.
When I was a kid, NOBODY was allergic to wheat.
Celiac disease dates back to the 2nd Century and was given its current name in 1856.
All great ideas are controversial, or have been at one time.
