It's ... Obvious

  1. MAGA supporter: You are a socialist! Just like in Venezuela. Bernie Sanders: My policies are similar to those in Denmark not those in Venezuela.
  2. MAGA supporter: Denmark is not socialist, it's capitalistic with strong universal welfare care. Bernie Sanders: We should enact strong universal welfare care.
  3. MAGA supporter: NOOOOOO!I THAT'S SOCIALISM !! Bernie Sanders: Okay ‽ , So, what is your point ‽
  4. GoTo 1.

          This makes my brain hurt.

Ironically, the biggest container ship operator in the world, Maersk, is Danish.

As far as I know, it isn't a socialist front.

Or the Front of Socialist Denmark.

that built Hoover Dam, Bonneville Dam, and the TVA.
I want the kind of capitalism that built our Interstate Hiway System.
The kind that put an American on the moon.
Anybody seen that kind of capitalism around lately?

          A day I will remember for the rest of my life. Three weeks earlier I had turned six. On this day we all got out of school and took an awesome trip to the Pendleton Airport. The crowd was huge, there was much speechifying, it was a party! I was excited, but there was no cake, sigh, kids can be so stupid.

          It was only much later that I absorbed the reality that one of the guys up by the plane yakking away was President Dwight D. Eisenhower. And, that he with several other worthies were in the region to celebrate the achievements of the workers (my dad was one of those) and planners that made it possible to harness the energy of the Columbia River for the greater good, the incredible work at Hanford Atomic Works, et cetera …

          In 1968 I actually participated (in a very small way) in building the great american infrastructure project known as the Interstate Highway System. This also was something pushed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. For a time I could actually believe this county could be great. But, I guess we can't in reality expect to have nice things after all.

          … I found it as a very rough graphic representing a facebook, twitter, or some other post. I just wish I had thought of it first.

accurate description of the "process", except in my case I mentioned China, "while not a "truly" socialist country, (ie state capitalism) their GDP growth has been way better than ours of a long time..." and it went to blows after that... I would up with a nice $3000 emergency room bill, a few lumps and scrapes, but the cop's... never showed.

Now days I just do random calls to the police on MAGA motherfuckers, turn in their license # and tell the cops their drinking and driving... just to get them harassed by the cops... kind of like SWATing

"911 what's your emergency?, yeah, this guy driving X pickup, driving like a crazy person, don't know if they are drunk or what, but really weaving in and out of their lane...I'm scared someone is going to get hurt..."

Go ahead and yell MAGA motherfucker, I'll SWAT your ass!

telling my Tea Party mother if she didn't like socialism to stop cashing her SS checks then, and for sure quit using Medicare as that too is socialist. Of course she had no answer to that and I never expected one either, but sometimes it was fun to goad her into trying some right wing babble that she'd heard from El Rushbo which I would try my best to debunk on the spot. But that fight on my part was NEVER successful, this is a woman who not only listened to Faux and Rush and all her other RW gasbags all day long but taped them so she could listen to them while she slept... My sister and I knew then we were surely outgunned on that front but sometimes it was satisfying to try. The hardest part of that whole thing was I knew my mother was intellectually capable of seeing the truth but she simply refused to do it. She once asked me how I could be so cynical when I told her both "sides" are really all about money, I asked her how in hell she could not be. Ah yes, the good old days, arguing with her and never getting through, like slamming my head against the wall repeatedly and expecting a different outcome.
