: : Thanks for the anecdotes. Do they contain iron and minerals and other necessary nutrients?

: Dear me! We are dealing with a purely theoretical entity here. How mnay times demonstrated does it take to convince you, Barry? 10? 1,000? 1,000,000? 10,000,000? There's quite a few anecdotes out there to see if you got x-ray vision adequate to burn through that copy of "Capital" you have plasterd to your forehead.

Your anecdotes of 'success' NEVER EXCEED 25% of the American population. My figures (skill over a high school education, owners of stock, financial ability to retire) bring to our attention the THREE-FORTHS of the population stuck in boring, low-wage jobs with little real security.

How can you defend that?

By saying that starvation is WORSE?

: I don't dispute those facts. They simply don't support a revolution, buddy.

And when did I say that I thought a revolution in America was probable?
