Socialism/Marxism is theft

The obvious failures of Socialsm can be seen in any border town. I live about twenty minutes from the border and there are Canadian Plates all over the place.Where are these refugees from Duncy's nanny state going.

We have heard endlessly about Americans buying oresciption drugs in Canada. The truth is we are subsidizing the Canadian market as they are not payig for R&D. Canadian and other countries price is based on production costs with a low percentage of proffit. In short the US consumer is footing the bill for the nanny state.

A quick look at the medical professionals in town reveals that almost half the plates in the parking lot are Canadian. Canadians flock in droves to buy alcohol, gas and tobacco. It seems that the nanny state keeps taxing these comodities. Some of you might not have a problem with this.

A trip to a Walmart in Northern VT shows big families from Canada buying food and clothing. In fact if one goes along route 89 or 87 one sees scores of Canadians border shopping. Now it is true that I might cross the border to get Jewish food or to look for an exotic resturant in Montreal. However, I do not go to Canada and buy household staples.

While people think about medecine they forget the host of taxes that make life miserable in Canada. Moreover, I see scores of H1B cases moving from Canada to the USA daily. It seems that Canadians also like high paying jobs with lower taxation.

The nany state should be reserved only for those who need help. Nationalizing, resources is economically inefficient and also theft of goods and services. Remember, the next time a socialist/communist starts to prattle, this is the response:

You are just a thief with good PR. Vote Beamish in 08

Duh!

They also like seeing a doctor or dentist sometime sooner than 2 yrs. from now! DUH, is right!

There's a big shortage of doctors in Canada right now. In the past the govt limited admittance to med school, so now they're caught short with the big Islamic jihadi influx.

The smart doctors of course moved south, so even if you get treatment, its from a butcher ;->

Warren said...

I actually had a Canadian MD who was also a dentist, for a family dentist.

He practiced Denistry in the US because he made far more than he would as an MD in Canada.

He eventually returned to Canada to take care of elderly parents.

It a shame, he was by far the best dentist I ever had.

The Merry Widow said...

Warren- Not only that, but if they go into medicine or dentistry to help people, the socialistic state will frustrate the life out of you! You can't help!

AOW The question is why the Duck and John Brown do not emigrate to one of their Socialist Utopias. Lets see the Duck live in North Korea or Cuba. The Duck could be Kim Jong Ill's resident film critic.

Jason_Pappas said...

Canada has problems, no doubt, but I can understand those who miss it at first glance. Not everyone's heard the story or lives near the border. Beak has the right description. But they'll ignore it.

Socialists like to boast about Cuba’s healthcare (universal but crappy) and their high literacy rate (despite controlling what you can read.) Reality just isn’t allowed to interfere with their fantasy. Perhaps that's the Duckman’s problem: he confuses cinema with life.

Farmer John said...

No... cinema is a projection of a political projector's values in and on the present or past and towards the future...today's vs. tomorrow's desires. The projector's make fun of the things they dislike, and make heroic the sacrifices of those they like.... and then pull the noses of their audience members... to enhance the memory of it.

nanc said...

i heard a story on the news a couple of years ago about a lady in u.k. who pulled out five of her own teeth with pliers because the nearest socialist dentist was over 400 miles away!

Farmer John said...

No wonder the British are world renowned for having such lovely smiles!

Jason_Pappas said...

I'm sure a lot of projection is involved. ;)

Farmer John said...

Only if you're the projectionist!

Anonymous said...

Hey folks, admission to mr. duckies movies will all be free!

Jason_Pappas said...

Free? He’s not that much of a socialist, after all he won’t even move to Cuba. I tell you he’s really a closet neo-conservative. C’mon Ducky admit it; you know socialism is bunk!

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Personally, I have a hunch that Ducky has a bitter jealousy of Quentin Tarantino's success.

nanc said...

or spike lee's!

beakerkin said...

I think we have it backwards, Spike Lee and Tarantino think they are Ducky. Never put faith in the
judgement of film heads, stick with the accountants and MBA's.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Nah, I'm pretty sure Tarantino thinks he's John Woo.

JINGOIST said...

Great post Beaker. Socialism is indeed state sanctioned theft. As a wise man once said, "Marxism is socialism with firing squads!"
What is an HIB case though?

FLORIAN said...

Jeez you think Beaker? Socialism and Marxist break every one of the 10 commandments. No wonder the adherants of Jihad love the liberal Marxists. They have the same goals, but eventually the Jihadis will cut their heads off too.

beakerkin said...

H1B is the section of immigration that corporations use to hire foreign college graduates. It seems that personell departments have discovered that Indian Colleges produce graduates that actually study items that are of value to businesses. I have seen the Indian Commercestudents transcripts and their students are much better prepared than ours. They study Cost Accounting and we study Rigoberta Menchu and Chomsky.

India is making US accademia irrelevant.

History shows in the case of Iran John Brown as a Communist ends up in a HEAD COFFIN before a mere Jew like myself. The Mullahs used them as usefull idiots and killed the whole lot once they maintained power. The truth be known Brown and his ilk would do the same to the Mullahs if they had the power.

One might easily find a sane Muslim, but Communists are pure evil.

I am currently assigned to the H1B section. I would rather work with families, but that is not available as of yet.

MissingLink said...

Beak,
One might easily find a sane Muslim, but Communists are pure evil.
Muslim in 99% cases were born into this fate, very much like people born in communist countries (this is why radicals have always tried to identify Islam with race/colour and communism during the cold war period with nationalities).

For the true believer it is a matter of choice (although some of them are brainwashed as young and naive kids -e.g . David Horowitz).
This is why I would never, ever give a free ride/forum to a sinister bastard, who under false pretences tries to influence my audience.
They are like parasites.
Only some of them try to create their own forums but they usually fail badly because they simply do not have the natural ability and skills to gather people around them.
Mostly because they simply show only contempt to other human beings and cannot provide any open discussion whatsoever.
They infiltrate.
Religious institutions, public/government offices, legal system, offices, education, political parties (other than their own), media.
From these posts they ooze their 'progressive ideas' like debilitating drugs to confuse ethical values, to seduce young and vulnerable into intellectual and moral gluttony and nothingness.
By engaging in discussions with this vermin we give them certain amount of legitimacy, their contempt to us is hidden under false pretences of ‘dissent’ to the existing system and also to show bystanders that they just wish to express their difference of opinion.
“We share this space” - they say, “We must find middle ground to live together in peace”.
Before you know it, they change tolerance into a legal doctrine and you may find yourself lock up in prison for something that you took for granted as your God given right.

Russet Shadows said...

There's a reason why the Canadians elected Stephen Harper. It was because among other things, even Canadians value self-preservation and their own culture over that of Iran. Here's hoping the rightward tack sticks. If not, then they too will have to deal with the problems that Europe is now facing.

JINGOIST said...

Beak what does H1B mean?

Purple Avenger said...

Marxism is socialism with firing squads!

With the suicide rates in the socialist countries, they don't really need firing squads. The citizens are offing themselves in sufficient numbers.

JINGOIST said...

Forget my last question Beak. I just read your 8:01 post. It's tragic if the Indians are running better U's than we are.

kuhnkat said...

Excellent comment Missinglink.

JINGOIST said...

I second the motion KK. Bravo Zulu to Misinglink!

Morgan

kuhnkat said...

purple avenger,

what makes you think socialism doesn't have firing squads???

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Kuhnkat,

Those aren't firing squads. They are "Political Sanitation Engineers."

The Merry Widow said...

Nailed it Felis! What is it about tassies? Are they low enough to the ground to see what the rest of us miss, such as "snakes in the grass"? Very well said!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Farmer John said...

Felis,

Under many circumstances I would agree with you, but at this juncture I believe that dissenting voices are necessary and should be encouraged. The West is experiencing a crisis of confidence that no amount of idealogical or dogmatic thinking is going to get us through. We need to explore the very foundations of our beliefs if we are ever to regain the confidence of action we require to confront and defeat the external threats we face. We need to know why we must act as we do.

MissingLink said...

Farmer John,
I believe that dissenting voices are necessary and should be encouraged.
I don't think we have a disagreement here.
The problem is it is us who are dissenting and our voices are being supressed by those who secured their positions and guard the status quo before their next assault on what is left of our freedom and democracy.
Please note I am not saying to shut them up, all I am saying do not allowed them to shut US up (by getting us off our objectives, getting involved in meanigless dog fights and skirmishes).

TMW & Kuhmkat,
Just speaking up my mind ;-)

Farmer John said...

Got 'ya. I think I misunderstood.
