And you have a pleasant tomorrow as well, Nemo.

You are hiding behind the bodies of dead people to wrap yourself in a cloak of shameless indignity.


You are the one who brought it up. You are the one who tried to compare Cathy supporting traditional marriage to the Holocaust where 12 million were murdered (in the name of socialism)

It was despicable.

It still is.

JH, do you also believe that the old commie dictatorships that called themselves People's Republics were truly representative democracies?

To change the subject only slightly, why dear God are there no fried fish franchises anywhere near Madison? Why? Why? Why? I *love* fish 'n' chips. I'd kill for a Long John Silvers. Rape for an Arthur Treacher's. There used to be something out in VErona, but that was long ago.


What about Culvers?

In my opinion they are the finest fast food franchise I've found anywhere in the US or elsewhere. Far better than McD, Wendys, Long John Silver or any of the others (and I am a happy customer of all them as well)

They have a couple of very nice fried fish dinners that I have always found to be excellent. Their french fries are very good too, even if they are not exactly British chips.

Clean comfortable restaurants, excellent service staff, great food, fantastic frozen custard reasonable prices. What's not to like?

I seem to recall several around Madison. Unless I am mistaken?

Huh?

What on Earth are you talking about?

Are you trying to ask, in your own unique way, whether they acted in the name of people's democracy, I would say yes.

Under socialism, "people's democracies" are very different from "representative democracy". I don't think they ever claimed to act in the name of representative democracy.

But even if they did, what is the point you are trying to make here?

You claimed that the Nazis were socialist because they used that word in their name. Thus my question.

Duh?

Huh. I will have to give them a try. My experience is that fried fish only is any good from places that specialize in it. But thanks for suggestion.

The fried fish take-out from Seafood Center on Odana Road/Whitney Way is surprisingly hit and miss. How is that possible? All you have to do is get the deep fryer hot enough that the fish doesn't get too greasy. The Long John Silvers of this world seem to get that simple job right. And they love the gays.

Could you show me where I said that? At least in the current thread that you were responding to?

I said they were acting in the name of socialism.

Are you saying that they were not acting in the name of socialism?

I do think they met the criteria for being "socialist" and I suspect that I know quite a bit more about the politics and economics of socialism than you do. Socialism comes in hundreds of different flavors, not just one.

But I'm not even saying that here.

All I am saying is that they claimed to be socialist.

Henry V has a good point. Governments and political parties that use the words "People's", "Workers'", "Democratic", "Republic", "Social", "Federation", "National", and/or "Socialist" in their official names are almost always authoritarian, often genocidal, and almost never very democratic.

By the way, most modern Progressives are Socialists. A few of them, like John Nichols, will proudly admit it. I actually respect him for that.

You know social conservatives in the land of chick-fil-a franchises, south of mason-dixon line? My, you are well connected.



Now that is just silly...think Facebook- between Texas relatives and kids who went to college in other states(and 'friend' everyone they ever met), the stupid comments about eat-ins were all over the place.

They are all over now-including the midwest- there was one in Racine, several in MN, many in Iowa but the only one I've ever eaten at personally was in a mall in New Orleans- and I didn't like it.

Was Teddy Roosevelt a socialist? He certainly was called that by some when he called for progressive legislation from his bully pulpit.

Depends on what your own definition of socialist is. I would say yes, Roosevelt's political philosophy shifted toward socialism. "We stand at Armageddon and we battle for the Lord."
