In a capitalist society, all services that government does today would be provided by private companies instead.
No, that is an anarchist society: no cops, no courts, no laws. If you have any of those, you have government employees. If you don't have government employees, you have none of those. Capitalism does not imply anarchy.
I won't even read the rest of your comment; an anonymous coward getting this fundamentally obvious thing so clearly wrong doesn't deserve more of a response.
Yes, my view of things is that we should rely on reason and evidence. Yours is that we should rely on fallacies and innuendo.
In any event, I think we can agree the AC is a moron.
Based on the 138 convictions, more than any other to date...
I see. You think the number of prosecutions of the executive branch, BY the executive branch, is a reasonable measurement between administrations of which is more corrupt.
That's so cute. And it's so stupid that it physically hurts.
The rest of your comment was nothing more than lies and ad hominems. Literally, there was nothing else in that comment that didn't fall into that category. Especially your claim that speaking to my assumed "culture, ancestry, location of birth" in your argument is not an ad hominem. That's fucking textbook ad hominem.
Yes, well, your examples suck. They are just like the rest.
Since you didn't say how the examples "suck," the examples therefore still stand, and therefore your assertion that they are "just like the rest" -- which ignores the examples of how they are not -- is baseless, and ignored.
And unions and democrats, and communists and fascists are not anti-capitalists by any means.
Much moreso than Republicans, as the examples -- which remain undisputed -- demonstrate.
... by the grace of your culture, ancestry, location of birth you enjoy many advantages
It doesn't fit inside your narrative
You said that your preferred faction, the republicans, are better than the democrats in the corruption department, and I am telling you outright that you are full of shit
What's that got to do with whether "people who 'donate' to political campaigns
And you did tell me that I am "full of shit"
And we can take a good look at your idol Reagan, just for starters as a tiny sample. On official record as the most corrupt administration ever
a. He is not my idol
b. You're lying that Regan's is "[o]n official record as the most corrupt administration ever"
Didn't you used to better at this? Maybe I am misremembering.
You really think that people who "donate" to political campaigns don't expect a return on their investments?
I didn't mention donating to campaigns, unless you're referring to collective bargaining leading to politicians giving handouts to employees in exchange for donations and votes
But I don't think you're talking about that, so I don't have any idea what you think I said here, but it seems to me that I didn't say it.
Scott Walker is taking money just like all the others
Yes, he accepts donations, like all politicians do.
... and lot of it from a somewhat famous Las Vegas casino owner. What's up with that?
What's wrong with that? This isn't an argument, it's just an attempt to imply something negative, without actually saying anything that is actually negative.
So funny that you think one group of gluttons is different from another.
I gave specific examples. Do you have any counterexamples? If not, then you're not actually making an argument here, either.
Further, the Republicans' policies are generally much more pro-capitalist (against raising the minimum wage, against collective bargaining with govt employees, and so on).
You have fallen for the Republican trick.
Under capitalism, there would not be any minimum wage, and government employees wouldn't even exist because there would be no such thing as public property or public services that require public employees.
You're correct on the first point, and incorrect on the second point. There would be far fewer government employees, but no, they would still exist.
But I didn't say these are the correct capitalist positions. I said they are "much more pro-capitalist" than the Democrats. Clearly, if there should be no minimum wage under capitalism -- which I agree is clearly true -- then being against its increase is more pro-capitalist than being in favor of its increase. Further, the one person I mentioned -- Scott Walker -- said just recently that he thinks the minimum wage serves no purpose.
The GOP isn't any more pro capitalist than the Dems. They just like a different set of cronies.
Yes, the GOP -- as a whole -- does pay off its cronies. But there are a significant number of prominent Republicans in office who oppose these practices (e.g., Scott Walker). There is not a significant number of Dems who oppose these practices. Further, the Republicans' policies are generally much more pro-capitalist (against raising the minimum wage, against collective bargaining with govt employees, and so on).
"The New AWS Directory Service
Today we are introducing the AWS Directory Service to address these challenges! This managed service provides two types of directories. You can connect to an existing on-premises directory or you can set up and run a new, Samba-based directory in the Cloud."
Best news for Samba all year !"
