Re: status: 4 sobering days at hospital
That's not socialism, that's good old American ingenuity. We're all making masks around the country. No government gave the order, Americans just got the idea and started doing it. I would bet the plan to move patients around had a similar source in local ingenuity. If a socialist system had been behind any of it, no such cooperative ingenuity would have occurred. And remember, in socialist systems the people at the top get rich and everybody else gets poorer by the minute.
And by the way I'm glad you had nothing worse than a cold and are back with us.

Re: status: 4 sobering days at hospital
I know this isn'[t the place for it but I have to say that it was capitalism that created the wealth of America and socialism will bring jus down to poverty. How I wish you guys would wake up. Capitalism is freedom, it allows that human ingenuity that is producing the needed masks. Socialism kills such human endeavors.
Oh well. yes, it must have been scary, too many symptoms similar to this virus, and in a person who has had cancer very very scary. SO glad it was nothing worse, RAZD. You are one of the engines of EvC if I mayh put it that way.

Re: status: 4 sobering days at hospital
I'll go with regulated capitalism. But socialism IS just soft communism. Given time that is what it will become.

Re: status: 4 sobering days at hospital
Yes capitalism needs to be regulated because humanity IS fallen and prone to the selfish misuse of ANYTHING. At least capitalism is usually only corruptible in limited ways, but socialism is government power that can tyrannize the whole nation. So capitalism needs to be restrained where too much power in the hands of fallen people can hurt others, employees or even competitors. Of course it has to be restrained. Not gutted however, which is what the Left wants to do to all free enterprise. And once socialism takes the reins of government forget all individual freedoms, they're gone, kaput, and we're left with a destroyed economy in which the basic necessities are no longer easily accessible. Venezuela, any Communist regime. The sad situation of Cuba. The Left is blind to the truth.
Oh and Overregulation is one of the tools of socialism which we've been suffering from, that Trump has finally loosened.

unfortunate digression continued
I believe Bernie Sanders has dibs on "democratic socialist" and that means I ain't no democratic socialist.
Regulated capitalism will do me. He ain't no capitalist no matter how you cut it. He's an Old Red Commie.
