lol, if I could intentionally design that in I would be a richer man in terms of material things. Perhaps the 'flashes' you get cause that and if you were exposed to the 'full version' they wouldn't be there. My Grandson keeps telling me that I spoil his dog when it stays with me and I don't have the heart to tell him his dog loves me because of it and that is why he feels about me the same way the dog does. Should I explain all that to him or just keep it as a reason to not get too excited over the issue and know that in the end he will most likely spoil the people he runs into, rather than ****ing them over.

Since they won't be shows they might make a topic at a chat site if I ever find one.

If that is an example of what is available then that is the format that should be 'donated' if you are trying to 'catch a lot of fish'. It may have taken 'us' 5,000 years to come up with 'a plan' and that would be like having a global society

What does that have to do with whether you've ever seen authoritarian socialism in action?

Could be. Since I can't make head nor tail of what you're babbling about, I can't really say it's impossible.

Still not really seeing what this has to do with authoritarian socialism, but I guess it made you happy.

And if the corresponding programs which benefit businesses were removed as well, the economic consequences would be far more disastrous.

Once again, agreed but the fact remains that all of these benefits are the result of a strong economy and society having the financial wherewithal to fund the programs.

As mentioned earlier, observe what changes to the social security programs will occur in Greece are likely to happen. This will be a direct result of the condition of that economy. This situation can easily occur in any nation

Wrong. A sign of capitalism's success. We have no obligation to support these people but choose to do so. Only because the majority make sufficient money to be able to share with those less fortunate.

Never yet met a person that couldn't spend at least as much as they make. SOme are just wise enough not to.

how is it a success? poverty is a success? forcing hard working people into 3 jobs for survival is a success? don't look down on other people simply because you got luckier than they did.

Hudderites would be the closest example. In your area that would be the 'omish' but driving EY sportscars and such. The driver and the one parking it make the same amount of money per year. The parking guy likes cars and he gets to driver 100 a day and the owner gets it later for a 'reward' for whatever his career is. The parking guy also has a decent ride that gets from point a to b.
Lets use shoes as the dividing line, if you have some you are an 'elite' and if you don't you aren't. Lets say the goal would be that everyperson in the nation has a pair of shoes (and a roof and food) without lifting a finger. Has any nation past or present been that 'advanced'

Same deal, if the planet is run by liars then the 'official version' has some flaws in it, most likely some very big flaws

Patterns are used as a training device. TV originally came with the ads at the top of the hour for 5 minutes, then at the top and bottom for 10 minutes in total. Then an ad every 15 minutes for a total of 20 minutes an hour. Now the ads and the programs are both used as training devices by the 'broadcasters' on the 'viewers'. Depending what message you wanted to promote (or demolish) the tools are there to do it. That they had to reduce a persons attention span down to less that 20 minutes is the low-blow part of the deal. If it can be shortened that easily then expanding it back to concentrate for 55 minutes out of every hour is going to have a person who appears to be a quicker learner and being able to remember the material.
If one player is in control the same method that works in one area might not be as effective with somebody else. (in terms of invisible manipulation)

My brain is an empty room to you. I admit there are some rooms like that but that is the beginning of the 'tour' rather than it being the whole tour. Religion is the only topic where I yap more than I listen. Other topics can all take some upgrades most likely. That doesn't mean having a bike that has the front wheel as the driving wheel is something from Oddville

You have a hard time accepting that your version might be the one that needs the upgrade, either as a direct statement or as a story that is similar but about 'a friend'. There is a cure but you need to be a perfectionist to follow all the trails.

The ones being entertained are never the ones to call it quits first, more likely to lay blame where it doesn't belong through. Little brothers hardly ever get punished for knowing less than the older brother do, . . . combined . . . on a good day. lol
OMG I have a revenge streak in me a mile wide, this is going to be so much fun. (that is the right attitude yes??)

Running out of new TVX series that are a benefit to society, this is what it would take to make me a viewer again. That is one version, if you want to promote it as being the 'long term one' then a few example on a media that reaches the masses is used to promote the theme. Rather tahn Iran always being the bad guy it turns out that Iran and the Persian Gulf area is the best tourist attraction area in the world as the planes land at the beach or at the ski resorts about 3 hours away by car. For 80% of the visitors that is Iran, for the other 20% they spend months there at a time so it is a 'part of their job'.

Noon already, wow. Retirement is nothing like the pamphlet

Need I remind you that is the room via your position. My words have always been true, just like my having a room with a view while your view in your room is restricted to the one you would have if you were in a narrow hallway with many turns.
That almost sounds like an echo (as in just said) yet I am the one with a slow learning curve. The 'noon already' kind of hurt huh?

Unless you can morph into a robot you can't offer the employer anything. If he needed more he would pay more to get the qualified help he needs.

I live in a central California agricultural based community. We have many who work hard BUT we also have another group who are 4th generation welfare recipients. the word WORK to them is an insult. They demand free things continually and think they are owed that.

I'll never forget McCain's offer that he never did follow through on.......


McCain: I don't think I need to tell you that there are jobs that Americans will not do. I don't think I need to tell you that there, are, are....

*Rumblings in the crowd, McCain, obviously flustered sorta continues*


McCain:...backbone of our economy.

Construction worker#1: Why don't you pay them the right wages.

Construction worker #2: Pay them the right wages!

McCain: You know, I've heard that statement before. Now my friends, I'll offer any one of you here $50 dollars an hour if you'll go pick lettuce in Yuma this, this season, and, and pick for the whole season.
