    Hmm ... and Mau says the freedom the United States is at stake in the 2012 election.

    Looks like we are boned either way.

    A middle class upbringing is enough for a person who isn't very critical of their own presuppositions to accept the ideology of the privileged.

    no one is surprised
    And of course, you do.
    In fact you support it with every post you make supporting Marx and his economic theories which are as much or more a form of slavery than Capitalism could ever imagine.

    I have to keep this pic on hand for you, it seems.

    "The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." Rudyard Kipling - (1865-1936)

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.
