    If they really plow rain, then it is to reduce hydroplaning. The highway is sloped, so if they plow the ice water off, it won’t come back. The plows also slow the cars down.

    The public sector runs on very tight budgets, they really do squeeze costs. Where there is deviation from this it is in corporate welfare and branding and boosting campaigns.

    Capitalism is based on waste.

    In the US, there are 3.5 million homeless people (ridiculously low official estimate) and 16.5 million empty houses. Go capitalism!

    Socialism Means Coercion

    Many workers in the Soviet Union, as is true of North Korea and Cuba today, could not even choose their own profession, or what town or apartment block they lived in. Such restrictions are the logical and necessary outcomes of socialism, unless it is thrown off before it reaches that stage.

    The United States was a country which did better at trying to provide for everyone. Then for some reason something went wrong in the 60’s, Europe turned more to the left, and the United States did not follow. Some of this is because so much in the US is still coded around racism. And then so once Europe got an economic safety net, church attendance tanked and so probably it won’t go back.

    Bernie Sanders was actually speaking from a position to the Right of most of Europe. But things can still change here.

    I do plan to be spending time in Europe, and even sooner in Mexico which is generally to the left of the United States.

    Venezuela has its problems, largely I would just say it is part of the colonial legacy which had harmed Latin America. But also I would take with a grain of salt anything which comes out of Fox.

    I say that going after parents and the middle-class family and making people understand that we have a huge untouchable cast, and that the middle-class family is the reason for this, will make things change in America. So this is my country and I am optimistic, that is about everything except what would happen if Trump were elected.

    Racism is probably a big reason that back around the mid 1960’s, the US did not go the same leftward direction as Western Europe. The US has a large racial minority, and a horrible history of race relations. So Europe went towards U health care and social safety net, much faster than the US has.

    Mr. Cat, you seem to have signed on to the basic ideas which underlie the Psychiatric System, that there are some who are not really well adapted or socially fit. You are siding against the outcasts, and with the oppressors.

    Mr. Cat, do you think some of us deserve to be in psychiatric care, or need psychotherapy?
