now you all are taking the typical defensive position, head in the sand, rearranging deck chairs while the country is sinking.

Quibbling over definitions doesn't change a thing. We all know how Obama renames, redefines -- and expands -- words to suit his purposes.

Don't get hung up on a given word. Look around you!

I'm using Taratova's very own definition from upthread. If you have a problem with that definition, take it up with Taratova:

"An economic system in which the means of production and distribution are owned and controlled by the people collectively "

Still awaiting some tangible proof -- any proof whatsoever -- that Obama actually believes that the means of production and distribution should be owned and controlled by the people collectively.

Do you have any?

Collectivism...meaning. Read and try to comprehend the words if possible if you have any life in your brain left..
  1. n. The principles or system of ownership and control of the means of production and distribution by the people collectively, usually under the supervision of a government.
So, basically, Obama talks about starting new businesses and fighting communists, and you conclude that he's a communist.

Tha's...not a good argument.

Bogus Khrushchev 'Small Doses of Socialism' Quote Makes the Rounds Again

Yeah, you've been duped.
It's always funny that those who claim everyone else in the nation are brain dead, and they are the smartest of all, are the most deluded about their own competence. It's a perfect example of the dunning-kruger effect, a group of people that are too stupid to know they are stupid.

Matter of fact nations that were once strongly communist are slowing changing to capitalism... But you would never know this if you listen to the tin foil hat brigade (Fox News)...
And welfare socialism isn't working too well in Europe...but that doesn't mean our President isn't following exactly in those failed footsteps.

So the person that speaks the truth is brain dead but the person that drafts their beliefs off of Logical Fallacies isn't. Is this reverse day or something?

Bleh..that's ok, I'd rather keep sleeping. But thanks for the concern.

Thanks for the bad quote too.
