Wow, free speech is a basic right? Thanks for pointing that out. Doesn't seem anyone on the right stopped her from speaking, as you claim. But, you seem to be unhappy about my right to speak out against her.

This post is a clear example. No substantive argument on the ideas or ideology.
Simplistic bait for the rabid: "moron", "communist", "idiotic", "dumb", "socialist" and finally "3 strikes you're out". Basic argument: if you dare disagree, respect and common decency are out and your freedom of expression should be revoked.

Her article is so idiotic on it's face that it doesn't deserve further consideration. You may notice that she makes no "substantive argument" on how her idiotic idea would work. I'd love to see someone tackle that.

"Resist, we much. We must, and we much. About that, be committed."

No, we need an education system that prepares people to be self-sufficient.

You have to understand socialism is a faith-based form of economics. It's a religion and like any religious zealot, socialists will hold onto their beliefs no matter how much the facts prove them wrong.

"If you think providing a living wage and giving up some work hours so that others can live will destroy the country"

If you understood economics you'd know why the OP's approach only leads to greater poverty of the masses, and yes, your suggestion will destroy the country, just look at what socialism's done to it today.

That's a wonderful tribute to a means of increasing unemployment in this country.
