Video: Wisconsin labor protest and international socialism



A few quick things hit me about this video.


First, is it just me or are there a lot of slackers in this socialist movement?  Look at these folks, some of them clearly have an education, but have failed to put that education to a positive use.  Instead, they bitch and moan about who has what. To me it all seems like sour grapes run amok. They failed to capitalize on their talents, so they throw stones at those who are successful. 


My best friend's father, a Hindu who came to America with only $80 to his name and who now owns three drugstores, use to say; "if you cannot make money in America, you simply aren't trying hard enough".


Second, I am quite taken aback how the young man constantly misses the obvious. He said "they study history", yet how is it they missed the fact that socialism always fails?  The guy even ignores the power of capitalism behind selling his copy of the International Socialist Review!  Geez! 


Third, I have to wonder to any of these socialist ever stop to find out how some of these companies are started? Do they stop to consider the risks and sacrifices people have made to start their business? Does it even matter to them?

Funny how 'Rob Lewis' and his ilk are loath to pay for their stupid ideas...

Doesn't that define a liberal?

They want someone else's money for their inane ideas...

slackers(?) - too kind

m savage: "liberalism is a mental disorder"; maybe, maybe not...

but for the hard left (trotsky socialists, marxists, communists, anarchists, do-gooder extremists), leftist ideology is truly their religion: factors "we" use to evaluate and decide - true/false, right/wrong, fair/biased, ignorant/informed, smart/stupid, effective/inefficient, competent/foolish - have no bearing in the world of the "faithful true believers" and their sycophant wannabes

if so, this is why no rational argument, no moral/ethical persuasion, no "civil compromise" has been achieved or is possible - such just don't compute

how did we get to the place wherein this condition so pervasive in america (or is it)?

Dear God who does this kid think he is?

Dude, it's a restaurant. You cook what the customer wants! And God forbid you show up to work on time! Seriously if you honestly think you have better things to do with your oh so precious time then let someone who actually wants the job have it. Sheesh!

ABC you nailed it in the head of these pot heads right there.

To most liberals, history started around 1850s or something, when the redneck south was defeated, or sometimes 1920s and/or 30s, depending on when the Great Depression began.

Anything before that was known as the Great-Unknown.
