F: God, you are such a snot. "...the American mindset...", you twerp.

Qx: No, I'm not. As a matter of fact you just wanted to be a yahoo about it and the ad-hominems you sling just show how much rope you need (not much)to hang yourself.

F: The only reason that I posted that article was becase Nickel Jack claimed that Zimbabwe was a successful socialist nation, along with other shining examples such as Nicaragua etc.

Qx: I doubt that. You just needed to find an article to serve as a mirror image of your own out-dated Cold War rantings.

F: I hereby dedicate the above post, the one about the frustrated and resentful intellectuals, written by Von Mises, to you.

Qx: Why thank you! That way we can discuss crank science which you may find to be very frustrating.

F: You certainly sound as if you think your God's gift to humanity,

Qx: God gave me to humanity? If you can discern such a profound insight due to hearing capabilities then what else is in stereo?

F: a regular seer, but unfortunately others don't see your Continental wisdom, borne of centuries of inbreeding between the nobility of Europe, no doubt.

Qx: And look where you refer to when dedicating Von Mises (a Continental) to anybody. His work was for the nobility and moneygrubbers of his time so there's not much similarity between their worldview and mine.

F: Rx for superiority complex; get over it.

Qx: Perhaps neuronal pathways have gotten a bit crossed over in your mind Normand. How did you think that posting like that will help you in honestly debating Zimbabwe in the first place? And what's to get over except the sight of you losing your composure?
