This is one of the reasons I like to keep a wide range of friends on FB. Some of my friends battle and block each other, but others like you guys become unlikely friends.
hahaha – they used ot throw clues in there so other people on the “same team” knew it was a fake. [using a reverse nazi symbol to show it was a fake liberal account put out by the right to deceive the left, stuff like that].
But now they’re tripping over themselves to promote a narrative that’s fading quickly.
I’m happy when people come together on what they have in common, without having to be in mega-gigantic broad lumpy categories.
Jack’s got some good ideas. Jack and I really just *barely* over the fence from each other politically. There’s definitely a fence there — but we’re friendly neighbors – and his system isn’t entirely disagreeable. That is, I could tolerate it even though I’d fight for the differences that I see are important.
Not to me. What i mean is: I can take each of your points that are important to you and retranslate them in a language that I’m more comfortable with. It might be a language that you’d consider Marxist and relativistic and such, but in the end we each have some similar concerns for the entirety of humanity. For example, your ideas on healthcare differ only slightly from mine.
I see both an unfettered free market and communism as unrealistic and yet I’m not against the relative anarchy embedded within a partially regulated market and I’m also not against a reasonable level of social welfare and common good.
The program labelled “welfare” is not the same as social welfare to me.
I would not eliminate the current welfare system however, unless a suitable replacement is found.
If you take care of people and then cut them off completely to fly away on their own, it just invites disaster and I’d prefer to prevent disaster for anybody.
Velveeta and spam, I know. The Native Americans suffer most there.
