Exactly. The maths doesn't work.



Never underestimate the other guy's greed.

Putin is not happy just being the King of Russia -
he wants the whole of Europe.

So you say Bobby.
But it won't happen.

Twenty one years ago we adopted a puppy from the Pound (animal shelter) and gave him a human name. Veterinary Offices send notices that pets need a regular health check and use the owners last name along with the name given to the pet.

We are getting notifications that R______ ______ hasn't registered to vote yet and would he like to do it online! That seems pretty shady to me, you don't even need to be imaginary or dead to vote if you walked on four legs!

Ah! The things we'll say in the service of self-interest!


Now that IS ironic,  a self-interested  'individual sovereignty' ideologue accusing a socialist of "self-interest".....

Putin laughs at China because he's watching the Soviet experience playing out in China.


Well Putin's  foreign minister (who signed the friendship and cooperation accord with China) obviously isn't aware of Putin's thought then.... which differ from  many Russian intellectuals who are smart enough to know China is not the USSR, and can see the massive growth prospects of Chinese socialism. 

A case of keep your friends close but your enemies closer?

Russia's and India's defense deal. Is India China's friend?

But you do resent paying taxes, even for infrastructure that everyone has equal access to... which is why Biden's (who the idiotic Right are claiming is the most "socialist" president ever) infrastructure plan was cut by 50% before passing Congress.

The best public infrastructure is what socialists do, cf with the "private wealth amid public squalor" state of affairs which the US economist Galbraith spoke about.


I resent the waste of my tax dollars, not the tax itself. As for infrastructure, in practice it is a financial disaster here. Both the interstate highway here and the other only path out in an emergency such as a Hurricane has been under construction for at least five years. Barricades and traffic exits closed make travel here a challenge for Locals and others so maybe there is something to your claim. Too few people are trying to complete the work but collecting a paycheck. This never ending road construction sounds like socialism after all, not completing these projects seem to be the goal.
