Accordin' to Marx: Socialism is one step on the road to Communism

The only difference between the socialist and the communist is degree.

The agendas of both are largely identical.

And both end up with folks like me gettin' a stick upside the head.

Here...

That's a good link, if you read for comprehension it clearly shows the difference. They are far from the same.

Yeah, you keep lookin' at the trees, sayin' that one is spruce, that one is oak, not the same at all.

Me: all I see is the same smothering forest.

So in this analogy you know nothing about trees? But you don't like them?

Spruce, oak: both trees with more in common than not.

Socialism, communism: both diseases with more in common than not.

I didn't miss Bruce's point, which you made for him quite well.

I don't like things I don't understand and everything I don't like is bad!

"I didn't miss Bruce's point"

Bruce didn't make a point, he made an error, which I corrected.

"I don't like things I don't understand and everything I don't like is bad!"

I feel your pain.

I demonstrated that he pointed out the error which WAS agreed to, and since he agreed to THAT, he demonstrated that I missed the point about demonstrating missing the point.

How curious this extremists. He must post insults even in discussions I am not participating in. Well at least he did so without profanity. Maybe his prefrontal cortex is finally growing.

Did you know henry quirk is my straight man?
