"Socialism" Is a Code Word For...


I left this comment over at today's latest outrage. I even suffered their idiotic registration process just for the sheer catharsis of having my say:

Gee, I think Castro may take exception to having "socialism" usurped in meaning by the chattering race-baiting pundits. Chavez may be emailing you, as well.

Socialism is actually code for "kleptocracy" and if that's where you want this conversation to go, let's go there with Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and Franklin Raines. Gay, White, Black. It's a veritable rainbow of equal access to my hard-earned money in order to line their pockets.

When I lived in Mexico City, there was that old "code" saying, "if you're a poor politician in Mexico, you're a pretty poor politician."

A pox on them and their disingenuous defenders.

There's a lot of stupid racists piling on with horribly offensive comments, but if you have something to say, this is the current Center of Influence today. (The pundit is Lewis Diuguid, for purposes of the sweet, sweet, Google hits.)

I guess that's another word,"socialism," to add to my growing list of 7 x 70 Words You Can't Say.

Joan, is it OK for me to confess to you my undying love and devotion?

By the way, if you look at the counties in the U.S. with the highest median incomes, five of the ten highest are in Northern Virginia and Maryland -- suburbs of Washington.

I definitely encourage that sort of thing, 'shroom.

You've got to be f**king kidding me. That's like saying "oligarchy" is a hidden codeword for "Jew." Paranoid headcases. We're really spiraling out of control.
