  1. is the most dangerous ism ever, and far more dangerous than communism and nazim combined, I am soon to be a great capitalist and proud too. Though of course I realize how pathetic it is to live for material posessions.

    maybe just don't regard is as living & dieing for material things, but with a comfortable amount of money (& financial freedom), money will become less important & your focus in life may again change.

    its all up you, money just means having more possibilities...

  4. capitalism alone allows for the production and distribution of goods and services.

    it encourages production, provides distribution; the free enterprise model enables labor to acquire capital; owners of capital have a stake, an incentive, in being stewards of capital and the rule of law, which benefits all, even those who despise capitalism.

    capitalism has nothing to do with what one 'lives for.' that is a moral question. capitalism depends on the moral quality of citizens to function properly, but it does not answer moral questions.

    an immoral people will destroy themselves and others any ism (Marx saw this, and sought to erode the morality in order to bring about command economies), including capitalism. but a moral people will be able to raise the standard of living far and wide through adherence to capitalism.

    every political system depends on capitalism, whether it acknowledges it or not. capitalism is as proper for human beings as breathing.

    In 1814 we took a little trip
    Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip
    We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
    And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans

    We fired our guns and the British kept a'comin'
    There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
    We fired once more and they began to runnin'
    On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

    We looked down the river and we seed the British come
    And there must have been a hundred of 'em beatin' on the drum
    They stepped so high and they made their bugles ring
    We stood behind our cotton bales and didn't say a thing

    We fired our guns and the British kept a'comin'
    There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
    We fired once more and they began to runnin'
    On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

    Old Hickory said we could take 'em by surprise
    If we didn't fire our muskets till we looked 'em in the eyes
    We held our fire till we seed their faces well
    Then we opened up our squirrel guns and gave 'em ..Well....we...

    …fired our guns and the British kept a'comin'
    There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
    We fired once more and they began to runnin'
    On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

    Yeah they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
    And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go
    They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
    On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

    We fired our cannon till the barrel melted down
    So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round
    We filled his head with cannonballs 'n' powdered his behind
    And when we touched the powder off, the gator lost his mind

    We fired our guns and the British kept a'comin'
    There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago
    We fired once more and they began to runnin'
    On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

    Yeah they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
    And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go
    They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
    On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

    Hut, hut, three, four
    Sound off, three, four
    Hut, hut, three, four
    Sound off, three, four
    Hut, hut, three, four
     
  7. Apparently, capitalism and democracy is breaking the camel's back, especially the huge frauds and abuses late last century till now. The system is cracking....can it be fixed in time?

    Next?

    Well the next "experiment" is capitalism - communism marriage.

    Hello China here we come.:D

  9. ummmm....what planet are you from?:confused:

    When you land on earth, xplain me why Ken Lay is still free, while thousands retirees lost all they had, and why we invaded a defenseless country (on fraudulent excuses) so HAL/Betchel MIC et al line their pockets with my tax dollars, all the while domestically we go to hell in a hand basket.:( Surely we have democracy, capitalism, law and order (in paper for the small fry that is):(

    yer need a wake up call & don't forget your pill this time.
