Oh My, What To Do?

Socialism and communism are two sides of the same (bad) coin. Socialism is but a way station on the road to a communist society.
So, when do the Nordic counties become communist? 240 years of American socialism, and we are not communist.

When?

And your quote is a perfect illustration of your circular logic. "For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened" sounds very reasonable. Then it morphs into "He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack." What the hell is that BS? How is giving one that "gathered little" an equal share of what has been gathered anything BUT easing his burden (since he can lounge around all day watching TV and then take half of what you made while you went to work all day) and in fact burdening the "gatherer?" This isn't rocket science and those two supposedly complimentary concepts are actually quite impossible to reconcile. And this is precisely why socialism/communism always fails - the person supposedly not burdened who ends up in fact burdened by the person who decides to eschew earning his keep catches on quickly and decides to join his leisurely comrade by eschewing production himself.
The quote is from the Bible (2Corinthians 8: 13-15) so I am not surprised you do not know of it, and do not understand it.

"Stupidity" is posting something that is completely factually incorrect while suggesting the person who actually knows the facts is "stupid."
Not at all. You clearly stated that most corporations pay over the minimum wage, and then give two examples of corporations that are not doing so, but will later in the year, or even later then that.

So, what "facts" do you know stupid?

And just to show how really stupid you are, if you had read the articles I posted you would have seen a better explanation of why Amazon, Walmart, etc., are raising their wages.

But you never know the "facts" in the real world, just your fantasy world:

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/01/11/walmart-to-boost-starting-wage-give-employees-bonus-after-tax-bill.html

  • Walmart is increasing its starting wage rate for hourly employees in the U.S. to $11, after passage of the tax law.

    (I wonder what it is now)

  • The company said it will also expand maternity and parental leave benefits, and provide a one-time cash bonus for eligible employees of as much as $1,000.
  • Walmart said it’s still looking at other “potential additional investments” that could come after the new tax laws.

I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive.

They were actually already paying more than the Federal minimum wage - they are RAISING it further as a result of the proposals to do so through legislation. If you think the facts are on your side, find me a major corporation that starts people at $7.25 an hour. YOU made the claim so BACK IT UP or STFU!

Maybe never, as they are rethinking their fealty to "socialism" in the face of their open border policies, and moving to rein it in. The reason their model worked for so long is due to the fact that they were insular societies with a homogenous, well educated and industrious population. Everyone paid in and everyone got the same benefits. That's a co-op model, chump, not "socialism." Now that there's major wealth being redistributed because they are being overrun by African and Middle Eastern "refugees" suddenly they are deciding they don't like their social welfare model so much anymore.

If only your lies were true
Go Pedo Biden Go
Nobody has to lie about Trump's disgusting habits. Have you forgotten the Access Hollywood Tape? He laid it all out for you. And there are documented cases of him being highly inappropriate in public with his daughter and many women he wasn't related to.

Do you have evidence of Biden grabbing women by their genitals or making sex related comments about his female relatives? Or going into a room where teenage pageant girls were undressed to ogle them? He admitted that himself, and some of the girls present there talked of it.

One of the questions people with morals, and values, face in this election, as well as many in the past, is the question of who to vote for. People such as myself cannot vote Democratic primarily over the abortion issue. And we can't vote for the Republicans because of the lack of concern for the poor, the indulgence of the wealthy, and the maltreatment of immigrants, and the destruction of the working class. And it is obvious that the two major parties will never allow a third party to rule.

So where does one go if they care for the country, and the people?
Please, you just pull the blue lever
