Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Good giref, it hasn't even been 24 hours since my last comment and it was 6 pages back. I know we all tend to do 1 or 2 sentence responses, but Tired...you might want to combine more of your points together so we don't have such a spread out conversation. I would also recommend that to R1K, but he thinks his pointless headlines serve a purpose.

If you warmers buy into this notion that record cold is caused by Global Warming, there is no hope left for you. The usual suspects are touting this deep freeze as Global Warming, no really.

You can Google socialist countries yourself, it ain't hard.

You will be paid what you are worth, so make yourself valuable. Raising the minimum wage won't help you. Your buying power will be the same. If we paid McDonald's employees 100 dollars an hour, how much would a big mac cost? Could that employee afford any more big macs? No, inflation will eat up any artificial market distortions.

BTW I don't really covet what others have. To be honest I don't need anything to make more happy. I've got all I need.

Some people don't have all they need though.

No wealthy person ruined my life. Though it might be nice to be paid just a little more. Not much mind you just a few more dollars an hour.

Now please list those socialist countries you mentioned.

I am off to work....time for some shrinkage lol!

I know it's easier to blame others than to take responsibility for you choices, but I assure you, it's in your hands to change your circumstances, coveting what others have will only leave you more bitter.

"If your life is a living he77, how is that anyone's fault but yours? How did any wealthy person cause your problems?"

Lets say I was paid with food. My employer has a choice. Pay me with food that makes me healthy for myself and ultimately him when I bring myself to work. Or pay me with the bare minimum that keeps me alive and nothing else?

Its all about quality of life. The higher the quality the better off we all are. Even the people who staff the lower skilled jobs. If their life is bad where does that usually go. Substance abuse and all its social problems which often translates to crime which brings down the quality of life.

"There is no perfect system, however capitalism offfers opportunity"

It does. But capitalism can be as evil as some of the socialist countries we have seen if allowed to run its course unchecked.

Also I think it funny a god fearing Christian is worried about wealth.

Whats the bible say about living in this world but not of this world?

Tiredofit

There is no perfect system, however capitalism offfers opportunity, and that is a man should really desire, there are always those that want taken care of, Envy is NOT a way of life.

All you have to do is list those countries and we will see how miserable those people are their wallowing in their socialist he11hole.

Once you answer that question then we will compare and contrast on where this nation is becoming like those countries. If anywhere at all.

I have a feeling we are about to see some more ignorance on your part.

mythravere

Here is where you are in serious error.

But a clarification first.

To what countries with socialist systems are you referring?

Posted 199 days ago.

mythravere

That being said I'll say this. Lets say that you are that capitalist at the top and I am a bottom feeder so to speak.

What's in it for me if the continued amassing of your wealth makes my life living he11?

You see the wealthy are small in number so it'd be in their best interest if the majority is allowed a little comfort and happiness at their expense.

Otherwise whats the point in the majority in allowing the system to continue as it is when it crushes so many.

There is a lot of points of consideration I left out. Just arguing the essential points here. Competition would insure wages wouldn't be rock bottom for example. But I think I made my point.

You are the perfect lackey for socialism, dead end job, hopeless and think if somehow they take from successful people, you will somehow benefit, because you cannot do it on your own. Well you at least have the opportunity in a capitalist system whether you chose to try or not, the same cannot be said for socialism.
