  I grew up in Towanda. Communism wasn't really a big threat to me. Vietnam was the issue of the day. We f#cked that all up.

I take it from your post you did not serve.  I've no criticism of that, even though I myself volunteered for service in the United States Army.  Your decision is OK.

But have you no empathy for the many Americans who served, and the large numbers who were killed or injured in Vietnam?  And are you unaware our adversary there was principally a communist force, reinforced by other communist nations (Soviet Union and Red China)?

If you felt no threat from communism years ago in Towanda, it is only because of Americans willing to fight and die to preserve our freedom and liberty, and protect us from the scourge of communism.  Believe me, macal, communism is a very destructive force.  It is alive and well today right here at home.  And if you are not concerned about this, you should be.
We lost the senseless war in Vietnam. Vietnam is a primary supplier of shrimp and shoes to the USA today. Russia still has a naval base their. It is one of about 5 not on Russian territory. The USA has about 1000 such bases around the world. And I was taught communist all have exactly the same. Explain how China is the leader of new car sales in the world , with the fastest growing middle class ?

That is a pretty wise-ass response to my post, macal.  But OK, more I really did not anticipate.  Any showing of proper respect for American heroes does not fit well with your wildly liberal template.  It would probably pain you to offer even a single empathetic word.

So how do you feel about open borders and Obama's flood of illegals by the tens of thousands, all able to hunker down here and enjoy the benefits of our welfare state?  I have to assume you also do not mind "kicking in" to support so many people who are not even American citizens.  Right?  And how about the older illegals who become immediately eligible for Social Security benefits, even though they never paid in a dime toward that program.  You're paying for them, too, I assume gladly.  Your kind feels monetarily obligated to foreigners, but for our own dead soldiers you do not feel any need to utter even a kind word.

I hope you are living in one of the sanctuary cities or states, macal, with nests of MS-13 members hunkered down safely throughout your neighborhood.  Now that would be just desserts.  slaplaugh

  How much are union dues?
  Going down memory lane, I believe I was paying 2 hours earnings per month to The United Steelworkers, working in the basic steel industry.  And as an aside, Trading Places is a great movie.  My favorite scene is where the Duke boys, played by Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy, explain how they make their money in commodities trading as brokers.  And as they explain it, whether their clients make any money or not, they still get their commissions.  Which beats by a country mile the petty scams perpetrated by a small time street hustler such as the one played by Eddie Murphy.

>>>> While the Chinese were first in doing so many things, such as using natural gas several thousand years ago to boil sea water to get  the salt from it, a lot of modern day capitalism had its origin in the northern Italian city states.  Absolutely necessary techniques such as double entry book keeping, and a modern banking structure, all came out of those petty kingdoms in the late middle ages.  For some reason the Chinese invented many things then never pursued them.  Case in point being the invention of gunpowder which they used as fireworks and never for warfare.  Or the way that they assembled the greatest armada ever seen and yet did not go beyond a certain distance from home.

How does that make a difference?  Thinking about liking socialism?  Think Stalin.  Think Pol Pot.  Think Castro.  Go live in Myanmar in the state of Rakhine, right now, and enjoy the benefits.
