    I'll remind you that it is Capitalism that made the poorest 10% of this country richer than the majority of the richest people in most other nations.

    Have you asked yourself why parents have to work so many hours? Could it be a consfiscatory tax system? Or maybe even their desire to have 2 cars, 4 cell phones, 3 tvs (with cable), leather furniture and a credit card balance in 4 figures?

    I wont bother to remind you that it is capitalism that put that computer in front of you that you now type gibberish into in addition to every other item that you own or have wished to own.

    Grow up!

    The only reason I need a computer to do this is because capitalism took away people's senses in NY and unless you make 6 figures you are a nobody here.

    The biggest chunk of people's incomes is gobbled up by capitalist rent prices, child care and money for kids' education. Latest mortgage meltdown is due to capitalism. How can parents spend time with kids when their house is being taken away?

    Let me give you a little lesson on life here Big (but Im not holding my breath thinking you'll fathom even one word of it).

    If you spend your life being resentful of what others have, of what they have achieved, you will never ever ever... be happy. Ever!

    If you put as much passion and commitment into your own betterment, rather than your resentments and excuses, you will be far more successful and far happier than your wildest dreams.

    Just ask ANYONE who has "made it". I dare you!

    That I would believe. I obviously don't know you in person are barely in this Forum so take this with a grain of salt.

    You remind me of a guy that works for me, complains and is negative all the time but works his ass off and is pulling in good money.

    Now like I said I could be wrong.

    I think the ideal form of government. Is capitalism with strong social projects... Like Britain.

    Except Britain has gone over the top.

    For example its great i get free health care, my university fee's are cheaper, i get funding to study, free dentist till 18, JSA, and all the rest of it.

    However some people abuse the system. That is a serious problem.

    He complains because he does not have enough time for his kids.

    Very nicely worded, tight-waist! VERY nicely worded. This is not a racist issue and there is no "code" being bantered about. We should remember that no one is forced to work ANY number of hours. Because of employment-at-will, anyone can work any number of hours they like. Some choose to do more than 40 hours for a variety of different reasons. The reason I do so is that I want to put forth the best product I can. Under my current circumstances, that is not possible working less than 50 hours.

    Anyhow, the responsiblilty rests on the individual. If people winder why blacks reperesent the highest bumber of poepl incarcerated, it is because they are the ones who have comitted the crimes. If people wonder why Cosby tells blacks they need to shape up, it is because he sees a problem with how blacks have run their families. Instead of trying to blame individual problems on others, let's address the root of the problem. WE can plainly see that blaming society or "racist" whitey hasn't helped anything so far.

    I just think we should lock up those we don't like, or can't make it in a capitalist society. The good ones will make good use of their time, I will have a full teaching schedule, and the bad ones are locked up.

    Oh, and if any of their family members breed..... abortions for all. We don't want to perpetuate the cycle.

    No this wasn't said for shock value..... it is my growing nihilism. It is pragmatic, and if it doesn't happen that way..... it doesn't matter unless it hurts me. If it does hurt me directly then I will go after those who hurt me directly and take them out. If i get killed or hurt or incarcerated..... no biggee.... stuff happens.

    I like this dog eat dog or get eaten type philosophy..... it is easy and not real complicated. I am a convert. but if I decide you are prey..... I don;t really care about rules either.... they are just constraints that only mean something if you care about them.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.
