    You're literally confusing communism and socialism with the bold.

    In a communist society, the working class owns everything, and everyone works toward the same communal goal. There are no wealthy or poor people -- all are equal, and the community distributes what it produces based only on need [...] socialismís main focus is on equality. But workers earn wages they can spend as they choose, while the government, not citizens, owns and operates the means for production.
    Yeah, climb, we are suffering from a serious lack of common definitions in this discussion...but it's not because of a difference in opinions. You just demonstrated your lack of understanding of these economic systems. Why don't you take the time to study up and then I'm sure when you come back you'll find we're all much closer on our general understanding of what socialism is/isn't.

    "Socialize medicine isn't socialism" that's one for the ages.

    So I agree with Pelosi.

    EDIT: Cazzie agrees, as well, it seems.
    Agreed. No point in putting votes to impeachment when there's 0% chance the Senate even acts, let alone votes to convict. It would backfire enormously and divide the country even worse.

    1. Why would any company hire females? They're just gonna have babies and the company will have to keep rehiring and retraining people. We can cut off the middle (wo)man and just hire men.
    2. It's discriminating against females.
    3. Do you think this would cause a decline in couples having babies?

    During pregnancy: Better take care of that baby in there and don't even think about having an abortion.
    After birth: Stay home and raise the baby, but hopefully you didn't like your job, cause guess what, it's gone. I hope your husband can make enough to support the three of you, and has great insurance that covers everything.

    You live in a sad little bubble devoid of empathy.
    Taking care of your family is your responsibility

    Pretty sure businesses hire plenty of females w/out being forced to

    Socialism is an economic system where the ways of making a living (factories, offices, etc.) are owned by a society as a whole, meaning the value made belongs to everyone in that society, instead of a group of private owners. People who agree with this type of system are called socialists.

    Edit: let’s not act like the two aren’t cut from a similar cloth.

    In Sweden, private companies provide 20% of public hospital care and 30% of public primary care.

    Not socialism.

    And yet they have distinct, and clear, differences.

    When you asked if, in countries with socialized medicine, the people own the hospitals and ambulances - that was you confusing communism (which is exactly what you described) with socialism. No one is advocating (as far as I'm aware) for communist medicine, so I'm not sure of its relevance. But to say socialized medicine isn't a socialist policy...that's some serious mental gymnastic right there.

    According to shottys boy Milton Friedman, The AMA is basically a union so you are dead on that shotty wouldn't find it necessary to have licensed doctors.

    Frankly, probably no one. Only 2 Presidents have ever been impeached - Clinton and Andrew Johnson - and both were acquitted by the Senate. It's more or less a useless tool for removing a President. You could argue Nixon could have been convicted by the Senate, but he stepped down beforehand so he could get his pardon.

    Isnít the real Pelosi answer on impeachment that youíd rather run against corrupt, clownish Trump than face Mike Pence and sub-4% unemployment?

    The real question is why Republicans donít want to remove him.

    It's not like that is a totally bad thing. Plenty of workers own stock in the company they work for. Companies have profit sharing and I've read people selling their companies to their workers. That is not that far off.

    Meanwhile people bitch that we didn't give Amazon $3 billion dollars in tax breaks.

    She's the closest the Dems have to a McConnell. She's a shrewd gamesmen. Thats why I thought a lot of the opposition to her from the rank and file was nutty
