Rewording is irrelevant when it means the same thing. Telling people
what they can own and can't, what they can earn and can't, and
confiscating and redistributing the rest (evenly or unevenly) is nothing
but theft. You don't fool any of us by prettying up your words.

Ah, so you will be confiscating industrial assets from businesses and
giving them to worker cooperatives. I see. Seig Heil, comrade.

As a captured Commissar confessed to a friend of mine who was in
military intelligence in Korea, "Once we got their guns, taking their
money was REAL easy."

Free market economics is not the zero sum game you socialists seem to
think it is. You're mindsets are stuck in the middle ages. Get with it.

I.E.: Protect overpaid union jobs here by forcing other countries to
price their labor to eliminate the competetiveness of products imported
into the US. Well, its funny how gunboat politics seems quite alright if
your intentions are in the right place.

Liar. Oil that is recoverable at today's market price we have in the
order of around 200 years worth. As the price escalates, more expensive
to recover reserves become commercially viable to recover. Stop thinking
with a stasist mindset.

How about a tax to recover the public medical costs of accidents
involving unsafe micro-vehicles that sacrifice safety features and solid
engineering in order to save energy.

over half of our current gas prices are already totally taxes. We don't
need more of your confiscation.

Her right to defend herself adequately against violent criminals that
have been released upon society by your liberal legal ideas.

Neither of which you seem to understand a bit of. Government regulation
causes excessive waste in both the public an private sectors. You would
not have so much waste from product packaging if it were not government

A corporation cannot continue to survive if it shoots its customers.
