37. Too funny. The Panama blog I referred to post # 23 picked up this thread
Edited on Mon May-04-09 11:21 AM by mnhtnbb
because it contained the guy's name.

Here's what he thinks of our discussion:

A quick read of the discussion comments shows how they perceive the producers of the world. Selfish, arrogant, narcissistic, inhumane and sociopath. They acknowledge Rand was comparing her experiences growing up in Communist Russia to the possible future of the U.S., but Communism is more attractive to them than freedom as long as they get a share of what others produce.

This is the growing culture war that is taking place in the U.S. and around the world. People with little knowledge of world history and the foundation of the U.S.A. want to take us back to a world of serfdom and enslavement. They do it on the noble ideals of equality and fairness.


:rofl:

He's a pretty quick study at identifying the way DU perceives Bush/Cheney and their supporters,
but makes his mistake (as do many Ayn Rand fans)equating support of democratic socialism with Communism.
They don't get the fact that there is an objection to the Bush/Cheney type policies of socializing
risks and privatizing profits.

I fessed up :hide: in the comments section of his blog that I posted his name on this DU thread.
