Socialism Diegesis 1.01



On the road of life, socialism is the rumble strip in the breakdown lane. As we roll along we get visual, audible and then tactile warnings that a crash is imminent, we have drifted too far to the left.

In this country we drive on the right, so the rumble strip is to my right. Getting to the left-hand rumble strip probably entails jumping the center divider & playing chicken with oncoming.

Cheers - Dave

Winston Churchill said it best: "The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries."

Rob,
I’ve really enjoyed your blog over the past few months and put a tip in your tip jar yesterday. However, the commentary has recently become too noisy and negative and off topic – sort of like an anti-Fox news, but just as irritating. At this point the real joke isn’t so much Casey, but all the folks who allowed him to get into this insane mess and aren’t doing a damn thing about it. Perhaps I’ll check back in later, but for now I’ll be taking a break.

As a Canadian social democrat I always find these psuedo philosophical observations from Americans on the far right amusing. There's an implicit assumption that everyone is doing acceptably, something that is patently untrue. Yet the right wing ideologues keep on repeating their nostrums and cliches to appreciative applause from the Rush Limbaugh crowd.
