Socialism Is Just Like Potluck, Y’all!

In case y’all haven’t seen this one yet

Check the rest of Fuzzy Chimp’s responses over at Twitchy

Now, we do do lots of pot lucks here in the South. And they do them up North where I’m from. See, here’s what happens. You have lots of folks bringing the good stuff to that company pre-Thanksgiving affair. Big bowls of mashed taters and gravy, mac n’ cheese, 7 layer salad, green beans,  whole chickens, a big ole ham, pies, cakes, and more. And then there are the people who bring a bag of rolls, because they were told they have to bring something if they want to partake. So they spend $2 on a bag, and then eat a ton. They expect Other People to pony up, not themselves.

For awhile, things are good for the Believers. They have other people feeding them for little to no effort. Maybe they can do the dishes, but, really, that would be degrading, right, having to do work when others have so much, right?

And then full Socialism hits, and the Government forces them to purchase a turkey they cannot afford, or, even better, takes their money to purchase that turkey. Or, better yet, forces them to participate even though they were going out of town for Thanksgiving, so they wouldn’t be around for that potluck day. And say “I’m not even going.” And are now mad that they have to provide food even though not going to be there. Next up, they are forced to attend, because that’s what good Comrades do.

These nuts always think they’re only going to get the good parts. And then are shocked when the negative parts hit.

    Yep. Despite all the evidence.

    All of the socialist revolutions have always been about theft. People outside of power wanting what the people in power have and the only way they can get it is to steal it. French Revolution. Russian Revolution. Cuba. Nicaragua. Every African country. And even here. It’s always the same. The people running the revolution expect to live like kings while feeding the rest of the population a steady diet of “sacrifice for the common good”. This only really works in societies where people are either stupid, or so dirt poor that they have nothing left to lose or people expect to be the ones sitting in the palace when the dust settles.

    How about the socialist revolutions in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Holland, Israel, Japan, S Korea, Finland, Norway, Sweden etc?

    American Dems would be pleased with that level of “socialism”.

    Social Security, Medicare, public schools and universities, disability payments are all socialist programs. Do you want to get rid of them?

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Police, fire protection, roads, bridges, ports, airports, parks, national parks, courts, FBI, NASA, National Weather Service, NIH, CDC, OSHA, public defenders, street lights, fire hydrants, meat inspections, city buses, unemployment insurance, FDA, military, sewer system, government, jails/prison, museums, libraries, postal service are all socialist programs.

    • est1950 says:

      Quite obviously Elwood has never been out of the country for more than a cruise or a vacation.

      Wearisome. The left in America is calling for panels of retribution against their political opponents. It is a crime to have a personal belief contrary to the state.

      You are not flirting with socialism. You are rushing headlong toward the USSR form of Communism.

      Every country in the EU is authoritarian with thought police and a total lack of free speech and they have so many camera’s and facial recognition they can even spy on you inside your own house. The biggest problem with Elwoods vision for America is HE gets to set the rules with zero input from more than half of the rest of the country.

      Do you honestly believe that 1100 billionaires that control 90 percent of the worlds wealth is going to let you turn America into a socialist nation? Do you really believe these lying bastards when they pretend to help you by giving you money. You know they only do that so you leave them alone right??

      Do you believe you antifa punks can fight Amazon, Walmart, Microsoft, Google, Facebook and Billionaires, Wall Street, Big Banks and Big Pharma and the rest of those people raking in trillions at the expense of your stupidity?

      Do you believe we will have medicare for all by the end of Biden’s term. A program that will cost 5 trillion per year and in order to pay for that it will remove 5 trillion in GDP causing historic depression in the USA.

      Not happening bub. One thing we can rest our hats on is the deep state in this country is not, will not be and will never accept socialism or communism, when they fight Trump its not for political reasons. Its for financial reasons. They have too many buckaroonies invested in this system to let punks like Antifa ruin it.

      The only way you would have ever gotten Socialism in this nation was to let Donald Trump rape the deep state and expose it with YOUR help. But now that Trump is soon to be gone YOU are in their cross hairs now. Have fun with that.

      Not for long. Whenever they were given something, they’d always want more. As long as there was one family with more than everybody else, the left would demand that said family’s more be confiscated to give to a transgendered BIPOC.

      The American left seem to think that if we all just share and share alike, we’ll all be wealthy. Experience tells us that we’d all be poor.

      The very noble Mr Dowd wrote:

      The granddaddy of them all, Social Security, is currently projected to run out of money in 2035. It is a Ponzi scheme, the thing that send Bernie Madoff to prison for a few hundred years, and is illegal everywhere in the country except for the federal government.

      Social Security takes money from people who are working to give to those who have retired, which is the entire methodology of socialism. But the left want to expand such income transfers wider and wider, until nobody is willing to work, because they are no better off than the lazy, the slothful and the indolent.

      The early Christian communities practiced their own form of socialism, communal living, and the failures became apparent even then. St Paul wrote, in 2 Thessalonians 3:10, “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.” That wouldn’t have been written had everyone been willing to work, to do his fair share, and that was during the zeal of the first Christian communities.

  5. President Elect Kye says:

    They are NOT socialist programs idiot. They are general welfare programs based on a capitalist system in America. NO ECONOMY is 100% capitalist and never has been. Likewise no economy that PRODUCES and product or service that is completely socialist (communist) has ever lasted. Even Red China (your benefactors) have gradually created a capitalist lite system to survive.

    Pointing and shouting at America programs used for general welfare does not mean a fukin thing. Turning the American Market into some fictional socialist paradise will do no more than turn America into Venezuela.

    Is that what you want Elwood? Our people eating their pets, having fresh water twice a week, having no jobs, no future while guys like you live off their property and labor?

    You probably think “locking down” the country is a good thing. We’ll wipe out a virus that has a 99% survival rate at the expense of murdering our economy 100%. People like you should never be in power that’s why Joe and the Hoe scare the crap out of REAL Americans.

    The exit strategy for the Democommie Flu hoax is the worthless vaccines. They are claiming 95% effectiveness, which is nonsense. Flu shots, for example, are about 40% effective. Polio is 99% effective and exactly no one thinks we understand Covid as well as polio or that coronaviruses are as easily handled as polio. The poliovirus is widely regarded as the simplest significant virus.

    Since the risk of Red Chinese flu is well below that 5% threshold, they can write-off those cases to the 5% for whom the magic virus is not effective. This is why the vaccine will be mandatory. Otherwise, the story does not hold up. Once everyone gets the fake vaccine and is required to get a shot every year, the great climb down from the panic moves ahead full speed.

    The corporate state has more power and lots of connected people get rich. Build back better!

    WHERE HAVE YOU HEARD THIS SHIT BEFORE?

  6. Hairy says:

    Socialism? You mean like Medicare and free public schools ? Public control of a cities water ?
    OK lets see if any of youbsre willing to give that up
    Practice what you preach there teach

    Want to stop aid to public universities like east Carolina state ? Maybe you should consider paying back what you freeloaded there even as an out of state

  7. joeandthehoe says:

    Again Hairy, Medicare is a socialist style insurance program paid for by the people who will receive the benefits when they qualify. IOW, it’s paid for by capitalist enterprise. And I’d love to know how public schools are free when they cost taxpayers an average of $9,000 per year per student. Is that what you think is “free”? City water is general welfare so you can call it socialist if you want to. Sometimes a government program is just a government program.

    There are plenty of “socialist” style programs in America all of which piggyback and survive off our semi-capitalist economy. Let’s see how those “free” schools are working now that the Wuhan shut them down.

    “Free” schools, what a maroon.

      Kye and his Ho,

      Socialism is the economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.

      Have you heard anyone propose, advocate that all commerce in the US be owned by the government?

      It sounds as if what nuCons are whining about is totalitarianism, which nuCons desire as long as they are the totalitarians.

      The US has the damaging social condition of massive inequality between rich and poor, which is getting worse. This has not developed naturally or spontaneously but is the result of policies from Republicans and Democrats both. Policies to better balance wealth/income are neither socialism nor communism. What are these policies? Progressive taxation, minimum wage reform, support of labor unions, patent and trademark reform, bankruptcy reform, affordable/education, affordable/accessible healthcare…

        Ever hear of Earl Browder?

        I take it you have no problem with totalitarianism if you are one of the totalitarians.

        IOW Communism.

        Funny, I seem to recall all the Soviet bigwigs living high off the hog while the average prole lived in a one room aspartment.

    Not so fast…Brother A makes 100,000 a year, Brother B makes 40,000 a year. Their income inequality is 60,000 dollars. Both get 10% raises, so A makes 110,000 a year, and B makes 44,000 a year. Their “income inequality” has increased to 66,000 dollars, but A is still better off than he was. Many people come here legally and illegally because we do have income inequality. They at least have the chance to make larger sums of money.

    As I have said before… often… taxing capitalism to pay for goods and services is not socoialism. Read a book once in a while.

    My brother is this person….he went to the grocery store to pick up some chips, saw a litter of puppies, picked them up as well and dumped them off on the family and drank up everyone’s alcohol and ate all the food. I am not kidding about the puppies. He gave them to the children of the household and the parents had the unenviable task of telling the kids no and then having to get rid of said puppies. All because my brother thought it was funny, but hey, he brought food to the potluck so it’s all good, right?
