That is some poll.
Only 53% of Americans think capitalism is better than socialism. This puts us with the narrow majority at the moment; a majority none the less.
In all honesty and candor I thought more people supported capitalism than this. I need to figure a new reason for tabling socialism like the MN DFL banker tabled the "Minnesota People's Bailout." Jim Metzen did one hell of a job for us. Signed on as a sponsor to the legislation than set the same legislation up to fail. Ends up looking good to everyone; bankers and workers.
I put in 15 minutes of overtime every day trying to save this system for the capitalists. It is a dirty job but someone has to do it; they aren't doing well on their own. Sometimes I think there is far too much inbreeding taking place in ruling class circles. They need us to think for them. They should do like the Hutterite colonies. Bring in some outside breeding stock now and then. Who is that I see smiling? Just don't drool all over the new chairs. And don't drool on the Chair.
As Peter Molenaar so eloquently pointed out; we can't just allow the capitalist system to collapse and hurt everyone.
President Obama has pledged to the American people he will do everything in his power to save capitalism. The markets must prevail.
One last agenda item for our morning meeting.
Peter Molenaar phoned and asked if we would reinstate his Viagra prescription instead of sending him another Ayn Rand pin.
Do I hear a motion on the issue?
Do we have a second?
All in favor?
Where is my hammer? Did someone put it back by the sickle again? Never mind the hammer I'll just pound my palm on the podium to signify the Motion has carried. I don't like to pound my clenched fist. Makes me look like I'm part of the militant minority. That damn Foster had to write everything down.
Peter Molenaar gets the Viagra and the authentic-looking imitation bronze covered plastic Ayn Rand button this month.
I'll send him another of my autographed pamphlets. What the heck. Send Peter an entire carton; people are starting to ask why we have space for all my pamphlets we can't give away and we didn't have room for Gus Hall's books. I don't want to get into this again. Let's just go color the Easter Eggs. I think I hear the Easter Bunny. Peter "rabbit" is getting ready to hop. Peter should have his Viagra by Hump Day... that's everyday for us, isn't it Sue... or, whoops, I mean Elena. Oh, Oh. I better quit while I'm ahead. I think I'm getting that "look."
On second thought. Send Peter Molenaar a Dick Long booklet too. If we don't have any left ("left;" damn I hate the word) call over to the UAW ask Ron or Bob to send us a carton.
Let's not worry about Spencer Buchus and his list of names. Once he names the names we can deal with that then. By my count its only 14 names.
Have a Happy Easter everyone.
God bless you.
God bless the good old USA.

Not too long ago, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was on Hardball, calling
for the media to investigate her Congressional colleagues to "find out if
they are pro-America or anti-America." Well, it turns out that someone has
taken up Bachmann's call on a proactive basis! His name is Spencer Bachus
and he has made a list -- a secret list! -- of the socialists in the House
of Representatives. Or so he told the Birmingham News. Who are the
seventeen socialists? That's the secret part, apparently.
From The Hill's Briefing Room:
Rep. Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.) puts the number of socialists in the House
"Some of the men and women I work with in Congress are socialists,"
Bachus told local government leaders on Thursday, according to the
Bachus gave the specific number of House socialists when pressed later
by a reporter.
By the way, I can't wait until someone tells Bachus about how "only 53% of
American adults believe capitalism is better than socialism." He is not
going to take that news well, I imagine.
