I like how you, tw, ignore everything I've posted in this thread...

...and fixate only on 'go fuck yourself, Bruce'.

I know why you do this.

Bein' a State Socialist (but bein' unwilling to out yourself) you avoid dealing with the substance I've offered (cuz then you'd have to acknowledge I don't fit into your lil box of 'Nazis, White Supremacists, and KKK'), and you'd have out yourself as the true extremist.

Your methods are old news.

You're old news, not even worth droppin' a profanity on.

Posted as a warning about a race to the bottom returning to a time with no regulation. We got through it and it did lift everyone. It was however no heaven on earth to be wished for again.

No, it was a joke, and I did apologize if you remember.

As far as fucking myself, damn, I wish I could.

We've been going back a forth, with me and I'll bet others, misunderstanding your thoughts on free enterprise, and equating it with capitalism, as most people do. The joke was now that you've cleaved the two terms into different scenarios it doesn't matter because I so used to telling you your wrong. Hey, I didn't say it was a good joke.

Nonsense. You make those 'no regulations' demands constantly. Then make minor concessions when even you realize that rationalization was bogus.

Okay.

##

"You make those 'no regulations' demands constantly."

No. I constantly say the reg ought to be 'mind your business, keep your hands to yourself, or else'.

#

"make minor concessions"

On the subject(s) at hand: I concede nuthin' to nobody (certainly not to an extremist commie like you).

-----

"free enterprise equated with capitalism by most people"

True, and more than a little frustrating cuz the two aren't interchangable (and that's not me makin' some idiosyncratic assessment).

The difference between the two is as obvious and profound as the difference between Keynesian and Austrian. Hell, even tw knows the difference between Free Enterprise and Capitalism and he's no more intelligent than Koko.

Let him continue. He demonstrates what defines a wacko extremist.

Better that he vent here rather than with his weapons on a crowd.
