    US-born white Americans usually grow up in a dominant racist culture, from which they absorb racism.
    I have noticed that some white immigrants seem less racist than US-born white Americans on average.
    That’s a absolute lie
    Masked as usual by the vagueness of the racist allegation, “usually” “on average” you are so simple minded that you assume everyone else is.

    Note how Kevcvs57 extremely dishonestly distorts the context of the posts.

    To review:
    1) Shaximir jumped to an absurd conclusion and attacked a strawman, based upon
    his abysmal reading comprehension.
    2) I pointed out Shaximir's blatant error in reading comprehension and explained it in detail.
    3) Kevcvs57 instantly attacked me for daring to criticize Shavixmir. Kevc ...[text shortened]... ge at all.
    In reality, they believed in something and were willing to sacrifice their lives for it.
    I don’t hate you any more than I hate dood or mott duchess I just see right through you.
    It’s doubly annoying that you commandeer valid talking points as vehicles for your beloved anti Caucasian racist rants.

    Clearly you don't have any idea what a Progressive wants .
    1.Medicare for All is first on the list . Bernie Sanders plan will save Americans $400 billion each and every year . Read the report in the Lancet or if you are illiterate find a friend to read it to you . Use Google for the big words .
    2 . Minimum wage gradually increased to $15 per hour .
    As for the rest of the garbage you spewed , it is a lie .
    News Flash !!! Biden is NOT a Progressive . Biden is NOT a Socialist .
    Progressives consider Democrats to be the left wing of the Republican Party .
    Educate yourself to remedy your obvious ignorance .

    FINALLY!!! Someone who says the there are successful Socialist countries!! Please name them, but know that an average person expects a country which has a free people, who can work independently Without government controls and regulations which, in any way, restrict their freedom to make and keep as much money as they can.
    You see, if that is not case, people like ...[text shortened]... sures success. I knew of no other way to make my point here, not other word that I could have used.
    "Please name them"
    We did, repeatedly. I feel like i am talking to a goldfish. A particularly dumb one.

    "but know that an average person expects a country which has a free people, who can work independently"
    the citizens of said countries are free, they can work independently

    "Without government controls and regulations which, in any way, restrict their freedom to make and keep as much money as they can."
    a, and here your definition of success sours. Wtf do you mean "keep as much money as they can"? They can make more money if they don't implement any work safety rules. They can make more money if they are allowed to pay as little as possible. Banks can make more money if they just don't follow any regulation meant to protect investors. Toy makers can make more money if they just make toys out of asbestos.
    Regulations are necessary. Government is supposed to control and regulate, to a certain degree, how society runs. That's its purpose, and we control the government. Much more than we control corporations anyway.

    "You see, if that is not case, people like me and guys who are successful and create hundreds of jobs and buy lake houses for their families would not find success in countries which restrict successes, and, frankly, billionaires."
    The fact that you are this dumb makes it clear you aren't a billionaire or even millionaire. Do you think France has no successful businesses? No wealthy CEO? How about Germany?

    "It would not make sense for you to name countries that restrict freedom and liberty. I hope this makes sense."
    It doesn't but not much of what you say makes sense.

    " I respect that it is repugnant to socialists to have a man like me mention money, but money is the measuring stick, the vehicle, which measures success. "
    No it fukin isn't. It's just a tool humans use to exchange it for services, rather than trade service for service which is impractical. I work for a company giving it my services, it pays me back money which i use to buy services from others, a grocer, a house builder, a plumber, whatever.
    It's just a number which, after a certain amount, loses all its meaning. What the fuk does 200 billion mean to Bezos that 100 billion doesn't. He doesn't spend either. It is just value blocked that could be used to build a hospital somewhere or give fresh water to a village.
    At some point money just becomes bragging rights between billionaires at the expense of working class individuals.

    True success is measured by what you build, what you leave behind, what you add to the world.

    " I knew of no other way to make my point here, not other word that I could have used."
    That's because you're selfish and you can't see beyond your own interests.

Dnt forget this link!!!

    "(Who create may many jobs for the 'oppressed workers'😉. "
    A job where you have to pee in a bottle just to meet quotas for a crappy wage is no job at all.

    " For purposes of debates, we must stipulate...there is no criminal tax dodging, murder or kidnapping. "
    Wtf are you talking about. They dodge taxes all the time? Is your point that if it's legal it's ok? Who made those loopholes in the country where you can buy politicians for a fraction of what return investment they could give you?

    "I do agree decent wages and good working conditions. "
    Then you should be fine with government regulating and enforcing those conditions. Because sure as hell billionaires won't dole out good wages out of the goodness of their hearts.

    " Funny you actually say that I can keep more money than you do, which is against Marx , which you are"
    Just because you cannot comprehend the fact that socialism is a spectrum and is perfectly fine with incorporating capitalism (which is also a spectrum) doesn't mean that the world is comprised of marxists and randians (and nothing in between). Your ignorance on the subject is funny. Or maybe you know full well this is true but you can't debate against it so you reduce it to the simplest of terms.


    "What is obscene, and how is it cheating the system and how is it at the 'expense of others'.? Walmart has rich owners, and employs near 100,000 people."
    And many of them are on government welfare, welfare which you, the citizens pay for.

    "Tell us that their money is made the 'expense of others'"
    It is. Low wages, low prices, low quality products bought in bulk, driving other stores in the area out of business.

    "I think your buddy Suzianne says on the 'the backs of others'."
    For some reason she can't stand me but that's besides the point. Yes, it's an adequate expression, meant to signify what walmart workers (or amazon) are: wage slaves.

    "Start about how we should attack the rich, and attack the corporations, who made your computer and your car"
    "Attack", such a strong word for "making rich people pay their fair share of tax, share that has diminished constantly since eisenhower".

    "Uhhh, your computer wouldn't have been made in the USA, would it?"
    Probably China more likely. What's your point? If there is evil in the world i can't point it out until i have rid myself of all earthly possessions and live in a cage.

    "Your next paragraph, abut Bezos, et al, not worth discussing. You need to get with the program. I bet your neighbor got an amazon pkg today. "
    Some people live in ignorance. Some people don't know what suffering their comfort has caused. That doesn't make them bad people. People can choose what they get outraged about and it doesn't make them hypocrites because lots of things are built with pain and suffering.

    "You prob never do order from Amazon, do you??"
    I don't.

    "What kind of world do you want, anyway?"
    A better one than today.

    "Do you think we should all just go into our basement and make what we need? "
    No. This reminds me of a charicature of people using idiotic arguments like these. Someone says "Society is unfair and we should improve it somehwat" and an asshat like you says "Yet, you live in this unfair society and benefit from it. Curious. I am very smart"


    "So if I invent the cure for AIDS, and give shots in my living room for $1000, should the government be able to tell me to lower my price?"
    Glad you brought it up. Did you invent the cure for AIDS with research grants from the government (aka tax payer money)? Then of course the government should be able to tell you what to charge.
    If you discovered AIDS cure on your own hoewever, you may charge whatever you want. But the government should be allowed to say "you want the protection of a patent? So that nobody else can manufacture it? Then you can't charge more than X". It would be the price you pay for a service the government provides.

    Why are you lashing out?

    If you didn't believe it you would laugh and feel no need to let it bother you. One thing is for sure, it bothers you a lot.

    Your lashing out proves that.

    Lol I’m not lashing out I’m simply making an observation on your general world view.
    This boast that you sometimes make that your bossing the science forum just makes me giggle. All you’ve done over there is cause a few regular clued up posters to lose clumps of hair due to your obstinate idiocy.

    The sneering Kevcvs57 fails the basic test of English grammar.
    Like many Brit native speakers, he's nearly illiterate.
    You recently fervently denied 'boy' and 'lad' were synonyms. (Clearly ignorant to the fact that 'lad' can be used in more than one fashion).

    As a heads up, nobody posting in this forum is 'nearly illiterate.' Nobody.

    May I remind everyone that Biden is not ANYTHING! Have you even looked at hime lately. Jesus.


    It is quite clear that Old Joe is appeasing the people that got him elected. Show the moderate to fool
    the voting people and then swing in the liberal ideology. Absolutely.
    So far he is closely hewing to his campaign promises. If anything, he's backed down from a few of the more progressive ones. Take a look here if you don't believe me: https://joebiden.com/build-back-better/

    Obviously he doesn't agree with the main thrust of right wing politics these days i.e. to try to limit the number of POC voting by any means necessary and to maintain those obsolete features of our system that limit representative democracy.

    It would seem that the majority of Americans think Biden’s doing a good job.

    A select group of republicans, trumpsters, disagree. They don’t like politicians acting like politicians, being diplomatic and effectively tackling problems.
