Spit out the seeds? You mean like the ….

I don’t know how many times I can repeat “things like bad trade agreements” until you’ll understand it. If you want to change the subject to government corruption and environmental issues, start a new thread.

Then your capitalism is no different from serial dictatorship, so I guess we are done here.

Pfft. Stalin would ship farmers who sold to anyone other than the government to the Gulag. There are few things that are more clear opposites than Leninism/Stalinism and free market capitalism.

Personal tax, tax on their poodles, I don’t care, the Reps are still trying to eliminate Medicare by cutting it to pay for the deficits from those same taxes.

You have a remarkable lack of understanding how government finances things. The Medicare payroll tax is isolated from the General Fund, so cutting what gets paid out of it doesn’t do anything other than extend out the date which Medicare goes into imbalance (currently 2024, if memory serves).

But hang in there, I know it’s not every day you have someone real to tussle with.

Not sure who that is. You’re a sloppy thinker who has only a cursory understanding of the how the problems you’re concerned about come to be, so you blame them all on market-based capitalism and corruption, rather than giving any thought to the possibility that there might be legitimate reasons why others believe that the solutions you prefer aren’t the best idea to maintain long term prosperity.
