why are some guys left-wing?

"I hear guys who are left-wing arguing such stupid positions, I wonder what is wrong with them."Wouldn't it be nice if you could just mind your own business, and not have to worry so much about what other people -- people you don't even know -- are thinking?

justice! justice ?

<t>It might not be fair to call it plagiarism.Suppose you're making an argument in a particular field of study.

has my time come, to lead the workers and the disenfranchised, down a shining path to economic freedom?

<t>God, why does it bother you so fucking much that I said I'm usually the most noticeable person on whatever street I'm on? Are you a wanna-be pimp or something? That's just demented, z.

<t>It's interesting what thoughts people can't escape: I haven't participated much in this forum in the last several weeks, yet tErrrd and zerdna are still thinking about me.And then there's that picture of Brezhnev and Honecker tongue-wrestling.It's funny these days how every serious economist -- i...

No worries, tErrrd. Everyone already replaces the entirity of each of your posts with, "I am a brain-damaged, emotionally fucked up Israeli who hates the world for the problems that I and my country have brought on ourselves."
