Breadlines are a hallmark of socialism where rationing and shortages typify the impact of price controls and Gov. policy against capitalism. Bernie says that breadlines are good (see attached video). Do you agree with him?

Hasn't he produced or been involved in several documentaries? I watched a narrated slide show done by him in 1979. It was a tribute to Eugene Debs. It had a lot of hatred of capitalism in it.

My belief about socialists is that they're missing a basic respect for other people's property and for the idea that each person has a right to enjoy the fruits of their own labor.

I can see that. My experience is either they believe people are not capable of making the "correct" choices and/or they are controlled by evil people.

I'm out of bread right now! I wonder if these bread lines have sourdough?

The bread is old and has some mold on it. That might taste a little sour.

Young people grew up without the specter of the ussr bombing us because we aren't fair to the proletariat, in their view.

Young people would be willing to stand in line for food.... while playing on their free Obama smartphones. Why work.

Don't forget rolling blackouts like in Venezuela. But it hard to find the bread lines in the dark.

Notice how never in history have people fled from the United States to socialist/communist nations.

People of low character love using the power of government to control OTHER people, but almost nobody loves having their own lives controlled by government. This is why socialism and its related forms (fascism, communism, democratic socialism) aren't preferred living destinations.

It was probably capitalism that put them in the bread line to begin with.

Name one capitalist society that has bread lines.

Keep in mind that America's poorest people are typically fat, have a cell phone with a data plan, cable TV, and smoke cigarettes. They don't wait in lines for food.

Keep in mind that Oklahoma are very low educated, generally (ranked 48th worse) and that this generally shows up in the way they think.

There will always be a state ranked 50th so long as there are 50 states. This doesn't mean 50th place is uneducated. You didn't rebut my point, but rather attacked me in an oblique fashion. You've tacitly acknowledged the points in my comment. Thanks for that.

Another reason why rankings like this aren't useful is the fact that we could multiply every state's educational spending by 100 fold and there would still be a state ranked 50th in spending. The ranking itself says nothing about whether enough is being spent on education.

Your logic error and inability to address my comment makes me wonder about your ability to reason.

"Keep in mind that Oklahoma are very low educated, generally (ranked 48th worse) and that this generally shows up in the way they think."

Does that sentence look right to you, grammatically? You may have wanted to proofread your comment before hitting send, especially considering its context.

It was just dripping with irony, and I couldn't just let it go 🙂

Now we see why bob supports socialism.
