226. That is a Straw Man
Edited on Sun Jan-13-08 02:14 PM by slackmaster
I did not say that, nor have I ever. The California legislature leans strongly to the left. To place it on my other dimensions, it's also somewhat authoritarian and largely clueless.

Also, do you have an excerpt of this "command Socialist implementation book"? You know, so that I know you aren't making shit up.

All you have to do is look at the history of the Soviet Union and the way things are done today in Cuba, where many basic necessities like food, gasoline, and housing are rationed.

It's not a literal book, Solon. It's a figure of speech, like when someone talks about a "playbook".

Thanks for the opportunity to educate you.
