Well, do you know what socialism is? I mean really: I’m interested in hearing what you fear or like about it. Public Schools are good, right? Public Works- road maintenance, parks, electric. And public service like police and fire, courts, tax assessors- all of it to support We The People. And the places that privatized public services screwed us. The Prison system is the perfect example.
But we *are* a socialist country. The root word, social, refers to Society. We are tribal people. We do not do well on our own- isolated. And the US hasn’t fought an honest war since 1945. I have so many younger friends who enlisted and served tour after tour in Afghanistan and Iraq. Some died there, others died after they returned. What does the Middle East War (2003 -present) have to do with our way of life? What were my friends fighting for?
I seriously welcome the opportunity to learn from you; to share our ideas.
Let’s start with “socialist.” For 17 of my 32 years working I taught public school. I served the public. I’ve been in the trenches of service to my country. Instead of a rifle I carried a baton, lesson plans, and an iPod. But service just the same.
Are services that benefit the whole society a bad thing or a good thing and how are we defining “social”?

Yes, lets start with public schools. My first year to teach was in 1978. Between then and now I have taught 15 years of public HS and nearly 30 years in a college. In that time I have seen, literally, nothing but decline. NOTHING BUT DECLINE, because someone in the gov who was not in the classroom was, and still is, up there telling teachers how to teach. Where I once was able to teach college level physics, chemistry and biology to HS'ers, it became a watered down version of "physical science" that used to be taught to middle schooler's.

Next socialist topic!!

Socialism is a necessary step to Communism. Federal Government has done nothing for schools. One of the goals of Communism is to take over the schools using design and the ignorance of teachers. It should have been turned over to the states as our founders intended it to be. These people can't run their mouth or budget so they sure can't run the education The Federal Reserve banksters donate out of their cold stone hearts our text books and they also decide who wrights them. So if I had kids in school I sure the Hell be reading them. Except democRats that are clueless on the documents that founded our nation and more than likely can't read. above a three letter word.

Socialism is a necessary step to Communism just like Obamacare was meant to be a necessary step towards single payer healthcare.

That is NOT a socialist country, it is a quasi republic that uses typical communist criminality, whereby all the countries wealth is funneled into the personal bank accounts of the elite.

It isn't what one officially calls oneself that establishes identity.............it's one's behavior that tells the truth.

BTW, the soviet union was not a communist State...............it was a criminal enterprise..................just as Russia and China are today.


Mexico and Central America, is a criminal enterprise. It's time we got that straight. It is run by the cartels and the people of Mexico have no choice other than to go along. The Russian and Chinese people prefer their country, right now, over what we have here in the states. Notice, who has the most people trying to get in here now!

Your meme is stupid! And y'all say Trump lies! LOLOL!!!!!!!!!!

When was the last time Trump or his family killed someone, robbed someone, raped someone, sold drugs to someone, vandalized your house, invaded your neighborhoods, over ran your schools, got free healthcare, failed to pay taxes like local school taxes, smuggled in illegals, etc, et????????

Meme - Illegal immigrants commit less crime than citizens. Wrong. Illegal immigrants commit a crime every day by being where they do not belong, very much against the law of the land. Without even considering the plethora of other crimes these illegals commit every day, to include robbery, rape, human and drug trafficking, murder, theft, and many. many more. No, they commit much, much more crime than any American citizen would ever consider, and that on a daily basis.

22 + 19 = 45? Wow has math changed since I learned it, I would have said 22 + 19 = 41. Or is it that 15 + 30 =41?

If you need a solution to the puzzle, think. I was teaching both at the same time for many of those years. And many other things in between, like working in healthcare as a Dr also. LOLOL!

If you took your head out of it's dark and smelly residence you would see that trump lies for yourself. Far too many lies and counting, some maybe understandable, others make you scratch your head and say WTF?!?!?

You didn't hear that Donald Trump's father, Fred Trump, born in the Bronx of NY, Donnie boy has said several times that his FATHER, Fred, was born in Germany. That is one of the head scratchers that make no sense in his telling such a profoundly blatant lie. Many of donnie boy's lies one can kind of understand, they are meant to further an agenda, accrue wealth, accrue power, get him out of trouble... All goals one can understand, why lie about something that gains you nothing but the label of being a liar?

Most would have stated such in the statement the claim was made in. I had to wonder because Trumpsters have shown that they are A. dishonest and B. not very bright, I was just wondering which category that odd math fell into.

You folks are way too busy for big math equations, after all, there are only two genders and that is way too complex for you folks.
