Rich people sure do whine a lot.

Looks like I'll have to keep not shopping at Whole Foods.

It's not like there's one within 200 miles, anyway.

What an asshole.

duppy: Rich people sure do whine a lot.


Funny how a few years ago they were all about the working people (even if in public comments only) and then as the working people started to get power in the workforce, it's nothing but the rich whining about those uppity working folk.

The socialists are taking over? If only.

Amazon owns Whole Foods now, so you have a different reason for not shopping there....

"My board basically shut me down. It's like a father, they started attacking the child, and I was intimidated enough to shut up"

I'm not sure about his family but when my father tried to get me to shut up it was because I was saying something stupid.  Sometimes, incredibly stupid.

"I feel like with the way freedom of speech is today, the movement on gun control, a lot of the liberties that I've taken for granted most of my life, I think are under threat," Mackey said.

Not one gun has been grabbed, and Nazischweine are as loud as ever.

Funny how he doesn't mention the rights that the Calvinball Court actually did take away.

Promises promises. Wake me when the means of production has actually been seized and profits are distributed as wages.

Says the guy who sold his company to Amazon so that the company could track customers on a micro-level.

He's stunningly lacking in self-awareness.

Just a guess, but maybe he hates Socialism because he graduated public schools too dumb to define "Socialism".

He's a libertarian, they're fine with corporations tracking, even enslaving you. It's when a government talks about putting the slightest restriction on him that it becomes unreasonable.

FTA: "They've even taken over the military."

Yep, dumbass doesn't know what socialism is. Any nation-state's military is entirely socialist.

They provide their members with food, medical care, training, housing, etc.
And they tell those same members where they will live, who they will work with, what they will be doing, etc.

But now, now, it's been "taken over" by socialists.

The same way jade helm 15 "took over" Texas.....

Libertarianism: a philosophy for anyone dumb enough to believe corporations will do only good if completely, totally unregulated, and that elimination of government will result in an indefinitely-stable power vacuum.

Look, he's been silenced.  And gun laws are far more restrictive than when he was in his teens and twenties decades ago.
Clearly we live in an oppressive communist regime.

In fairness, it sucked ass before Amazon took over, when this so-called "libertarian" coont still ran it.

I registered Libertarian JUST to keep all the damn canvassers away from my house. Works like a charm.

Nobody wants to talk to a Libertarian. NOBODY.

It just goes to show how much we have been lied to our whole lives by the media.
The wealthy were being pushed as the best and the brightest and then we have Trump and this idiot to shows us that more often than not these people are very stupid.

Funny how western socialist countries are doing fine. Almost as if the problem wasn't socialism, but authoritarianism. Something right-wingers and capitalists love.

Authoritarianism rationalized by socialism.

That's a nice factory you have there. Worked hard for it, huh? Well now it's going to be run by an illiterate peasant who doesn't know how to run a factory. You know, to balance things.

Well if the socialists take over they will probably do a better job than the vulture capitalists that have everyone at each others throats for their table scraps while they distract a cult with culture war BS.

Yes they came at night and grabbed all the guns thats why mass shootings have gone down, wait no they haven't.

Bernie was right

The only system with long term viability is a capitalist socialist hybrid.

He called it democratic socialism and the big business owned press shiat on him for it in the 2016 primaries

Neither capitalism alone nor socialism alone works long term.

Only a hybrid of the two works

Approx 66% of the wealthy in murca inherited it

The news only focuses on the other third to give murcans hope that they too can become rich w enough hard work.
