F: Hey, not getting paid is one of the positive features of your socialist utopia. Remember the old Soviet saying? "They pretend to pay us and we pretend to work". Leads to a classless society you know, scientific man, worker's paradise, yadda, yadda, yadda....

Qx: Of course Normand has splashed on the wrtong side of the lily pad when it cpomes to even understanding my position on socialism. At least this highlights his militant ignorance.

: : b: The article went on to say there were more potato farmers
: : : in Russia than any other country in the world.

: : Qx: I'd like to see that article. There might be some glaring ommissions worth mentioning. Like the overall state of Russian workers today. Also, it's interesting how you haven't mentioned the capitalists who have ruined Russia. Keep in mind that this happened with some American help and those Americans don't care about the average Russian toiling away just to keep a roof over their heads.

F: The "capitalists who have ruined Russia"? Duh?

Qx: I know you're confused Normand but keep reading and maybe in your researches you might learn someting outside of the dominant paradigm.

F: Solzhenitzin may have a disagreement about that. Of course he's not on your intellectual level but he might have something to say nevertheless.

Qx: He's an old fuddy-duddy who was chaperoned and coddled by some the worst people in the US elite. He just might agree with me though and you might wind up disappointed.

F: I'd like to say that I don't particularly care about Russians with roof's over their head's nor do I particularly care about Russian's without roof's over their heads.

Qx: Nor do you care about people anywhere else with or without roofs over their heads but that's already a moot point from the first time you started posting isn't it Normand?

F: I do care that there are so many people that swallow inanities like "the possibilities of community" hook line and sinker, not realising that they are clamoring for a repeat of the Soviet economic disaster in this country.

Qx: I do laugh that people like Normand swallow Randian bait like sheep to the slaughter but always compare their place of slaughter to be better in comparison to that other place of slaughter. Even if they have only minimal knowledge of that other place of slaughter and have no idea that there are alternatives to places of slaughter.


Qx:The flames could get bigger.

F: Big deal, let 'em get bigger.

Qx: Cool...here comes the weeny roast!
