Readers Forum – If it walks like a Duck..

“There is no value where truth is absent.” ..Chuck.

Roger that I have the duck insi

The biggest problem in America today, (in my opinion), is too many Americans are watching their right hand, ..when they should be watching the left.

In the interim this morning, as I am “disregarding” my policy, I choose to explain; …

I received two chiding comments, “Wednesday last,” from an extremely antagonistic individual by the name of “Brian,” who is apparently one of those rare individuals that believes he is an expert when it comes to the thoughts and productions of others…

Accordingly, without further ado…

Brian from Facebook, (The difference between communism and socialism), “Posted; June 19, 2013.

“Not even close! Socialism is equally committed to the destruction of the capitalist state, and differences over the former USSR and contemporary China tend to be between those who are or are not Stalinists and/or Maoists, not socialists vs. communists.

Socialism is the mode of production that immediately follows capitalism, and it is eventually replaced by communism when society has developed far enough beyond capitalism that the organs of the state become superfluous and are faded out.”

And (capitalism), Posted; June 20, 2013.

“How is that despite understanding basic political economy enough to recognize state capitalism (as opposed to communism or socialism”), yet still commit the all-too-common fallacy of confounding any of Obama’s policies or rhetoric with socialism?

Or did you just do a copy and paste from Wikipedia in hopes that it would make your claim seem more plausible (it didn’t, it made it seem dumber)?

In my Opinion - Finished

Hello Brian, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your comments and your narratives. With that said; I should like to preface my reply to you with the understanding that it is (adverse) to my policy to reply to comments concerning a posting more than 60 days past.

Albeit, as I have a weakness for “not” ignoring idiots, I have chosen to make “you” an exception.

Although I don’t know you, and most likely wouldn’t want to, I will indeed enjoy myself this morning at your expense.

The first thing out of your mouth; “Not even close! Socialism is equally committed to the destruction of the capitalist state.

Einstein - duh

The second thing you opted to press me with, was wanting me to believe that there is somehow “a difference” between a Stalinist communist and a Maoist Communist?

The next time you’re at the library, if indeed you know where the library is? Pick up a copy of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and check out Act II scene II; …

Barry and Karl - graphic 2a

“What’s in a name? A Communist by any other name, is still a Communist.”

Continuing…

Your next reckoning chronicles that; “Socialism is the mode of production that “immediately” follows “capitalism,” and (is) eventually (replaced by communism) when “society” has “developed” (far enough beyond) “capitalism” that the…

..(of the state) become superfluous and are faded out.”

According to Webster: “su·per·flu·ous,” adj. Being beyond what is required or sufficient.

Help me out here Brian, since I’m confused about whether you’re referring to a “wind” musical instrument…

pipe organ 1

“Pipe Organ”

gallbladder 3

“Gallbladder.”

..or a gastrointestinal body part?

Continuing…

A Question Brian, please; “Have you ever met a rich man, or a poor man who possessed more than he wants?

our words fun 2

(Sidebar).

Concluding, categorically that you are a product of academia with (no tie to reality) or connection with “common sense,” (it is my humble opinion), that you purchase a copy of Merriam-Webster’s publication and make it your best friend.

Moving on to your critique of my June 20, 2013 offering, “Ta-Da,” entitled; “Capitalism,” …

..and I quote; “How is that despite understanding basic political economy.” …

(Time Out).

Scribed properly, there would be an (it) between the words (how and that), ..but then what do I know, I’m a “bona fide” high school dropout.

However, as to my being “confounded,” and/or, “confused” about mistaking Barack Obama’s policies and rhetoric with socialism?

give it walks like a duck 3 (2)

What planet do you log into Facebook from? Because here on earth we understand that when an individual, walks like a duck and talks like a duck, that individual is a duck.

It is an absolutely unequivocally documented fact that Barack Obama’s grandparents on his mother’s side were and are (both) card-carrying Communists.

It is an absolutely unequivocally documented fact that Barack Obama’s mother, (the woman that passed on her parents ideology to her son), was specifically enrolled in communist oriented schools.

It is also “categorically” documented that she was an atheist and an antigovernment activist, (except on the days that she received her welfare benefits).

People are who they are taught to be, as I was taught to be self-reliant and responsible for my actions from the time I could walk, Barack Obama was taught that the government was the devil and if he wasn’t clever, the government would consume him.

Which of course, (at least in my opinion), Barack took as a personal challenge and as it is a no brainer for those of us with the capacity to connect with our God given “Common Sense,” Barack Obama has indeed been clever enough to turn the tables on America and consume the government.

So my last question for you today Brian is; (as an individual who undoubtedly voted for Barack Obama, …

it feel to be a meal

“How does it feel to be a meal?

Postscript: Concerning my propensity for cutting and pasting from Wikipedia and others? Of course I “cut-and-paste” from Wikipedia and others.

What is it that you “don’t understand” about my inability to compete with great minds like your without cheating?

Darren from Pensacola,                 (America’s Eagles).

Great article, right on target. Left wing progressives have been wiping their feet on the U.S. Constitution for way too long, it’s about time someone stood up and told America the truth.

Thank you my friend, I have bookmarked your site and I’ll be sharing it with everyone in my address book.

In my Opinion - Finished

Hello Darren, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative and your accolades. The truth and sharing are two of mankind’s greatest responsibilities, …

Martin Sheen and Spiderman 6

..albeit as Spiderman’s uncle so eloquently explicated; “With great responsibility comes great power, and/or, ‘er, was that the other way around?

Either way, I’m pleased to add you to my list of friends, don’t be a stranger, Chuck.

Welcome - Finished

Miriam from Hollister,                 (A Quick Question).

I’ve been reading your blog for about seven months and I love it. I think Barack and Michelle would both look great in a burqa 🙂

In my Opinion - Finished

Hello Miriam, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative.

Although Tuesday’s question was indeed a quick one, it was not asked without thought, nor can it be answered without consideration.

Happy to have you on board and I look forward to hearing from you again, ..hopefully many times and soon. Chuck.

Welcome - Finished

Georgette from Houston,         (In My Humble Opinion).

My husband and I have been reading your blog for about two years, he attended an Ivy League college, so he thinks your dictionary definitions are condescending, but I love them.

So don’t change a thing, because I spend more time on the Internet than he does.

In my Opinion - Finished

Hello Georgette, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative. I get a lot of comments on my “dictionary definitions,” most (appreciate them), ..albeit your husband is by no stretch standing alone.

My friend “David” also thinks my dictionary definitions are condescending and the lion share of his “higher” education was gleaned astride a metal steed manufactured by Harley-Davidson. 🙂

Don’t be a stranger, Chuck.

Welcome - Finished

Taylor from Fort Benning,             (Loose lips sink ships).

I’ve only been reading your blog for about five or six weeks, but that’s been long enough for me to realize that the biggest mistake I’ve made in life so far was voting for Barack Obama because I’m a black man.

Thank you for this forum, because I have something I want to share, Barack Obama and I are both black, but only one of us is a man.

Keep on telling it like it is and I’ll keep on sharing it with my brothers.

In my Opinion - Finished

Hello Taylor, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative and for your accolades. With that said; I’d like to share a little more of my personal philosophy.

If I look at a man and I don’t feel that he would do a good job painting my house, (which might seem like a silly measure to some), ..it’s the measure that I always use before spending (my money) or casting (my vote) ..and it has always served me well.

Welcome back anytime, Chuck.

Welcome - Finished

James from Boise,                       (What’s your Policy).

I’m a white guy that didn’t finish high school so I joined the military to support my wife and kid. Six months ago I was proud to be an American defending my country.

Now I can’t look my family or friends in the eyes because I had to sign up on public assistance to feed my family.

You should write more about impeaching Obama, all he’s done since he’s been in the White House is divide the nation and play golf.

In my Opinion - Finished

Hello James, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative and for your enkindling suggestion to impeach Obama…

According to Webster: “en·kin·dling,” v. To make luminous and glowing.

Although I get that suggestion at least 100 times a month, I can’t recall anyone ever providing a more appropriate basis for impeachment.

Drop-in again when the spirit moves you, Chuck.

Welcome - Finished

Marcia from Galveston,                           (By Definition).

Great read, humorous, informative, political and anti-Obama, what more could a girl ask for?

I’ve been reading your blather for more than a year, every morning, how do you do it?

In my Opinion - Finished

Hello Marcia, thank you for patronizing my site, thank you for your narrative and thank you for your kindness.

When I was in school, (for that brief moment), I really like to read and although (at the time) I could never imagine myself with the capacity to manipulate words in a fashion that would attract anyone to read what I might write, ..I was intrigued by those that could.

What I didn’t realize (at the time), is that writing isn’t really writing, ..it’s simply telling a story.

Question: What does one do when one tells a story? They talk, or at least that was the method I used and when it came to talking, I quickly learned there were damn few that could compete with me.

not shy 2

Writing a blog, a manifesto, an epitaph or the Declaration of Independence is in actuality, no more than saying what’s on your mind and since the good Lord, and/or, “God,” provided us all with a mind and an (imagination,) when you make the connection, there really isn’t anything that you can’t do.

And that my dear in a nutshell is how a high school dropout, (not only) can do it, ..but does do it.

In closing, something to ponder; …

great flexibility Mr. Pres

“Common sense” like persistence (is not) an obstacle,

albeit, the lack of common sense and persistence is!

Truth forges understanding, I’ll be back tomorrow
