Or we could figure out a better way to distribute resources. Capitalism works great when there's plenty of work to do. Not so well when there isnt.

Is there a spot for an mp3 player?
It's more like us invading Iraq fostered the Islamic State. Sadam's army would have crushed the IS had they tried invading Iraq with him in power rather than running away as today's Iraqi army did. Not only that but we lost a great counter weight to Iran by taking Sadam out and set off wide spread inter-ethnic / inter-faith violence in the region which has only helped the IS advance.
All Obama did was end our misguided and arrogant attempt at nation building
Yes because Islam is a horrible, monstrous religion. Or is it religion in general that's bad? Or maybe your just a bigot?
Oh look, it got modded up to 5 while you got modded to 0 and labeled troll. Accurate grading on all fronts!
Yes, you're right to address the rampant award show oriented rascism present in this country. For too long this problem has been glossed over by the liberal media! White people need to stand up to this horrible oppression!
Yes, Hitler and Stalin got their start at Christmas tree events for children.

A) your linked to article does not mention a single disease that can be prevented with inoculation and is thus irrelevant.
B) I'm jumping on the partisan band wagon? How is that? All I did was point out that illegal immigration was irrelevant in the context of the forced inoculation debate. I didn't even voice an oppinion on the overall subject.
You're making things up again.
Just to make sure I'm following what you're getting at
Disliking a crappy book = poor reading ability?
Liking a crappy book = good reading ability?
Calling a book crappy and making fun of you for making claims that sound like they're coming from a first grader = being defensive of own reading ability?
Does being a good reader mean you like a crappy book or do you just have poor taste? Has your mother confirmed your good reader status?
And for the record, I think it's just super you are such a good reader. Good for you!
Can we please stop adding gate to the end of any controversial subject? It was barely clever the first time it was done and it's gotten to be pretty much the polar opposite at this point.
I guess he needed an extra paycheck after writing that pile of awfull, Reamde.
I made it 2/3rds deep before I realized I was wasting my life
I pretty much agree with all of that
Ghiradeli hasn't been top notch for years. Our weather is most.certainly some of the best in the world. Violent crime rates are virtually identical between Texas and California (https://www.census.gov/statab/ranks/rank21.html). There hasn't been a power crisis in California for over a decade. An active night life is generally considered a virtue. Breast implant rates in the South are extremely high.
Plus if you want to play the beauty angle, we aren't nearly as fat.
It's great you have regional pride but don't be so condesending if your region can't walk your talk.
