I am afraid he is delusional RW. I remember the phrase very well when Mrs T used it. She assured us that things will get worse before they get better. Funny enough she was right in one thing, things dd get worse but they never seemed to get any better.

When she came to power one could buy a house three times one's salary, now it is 15 times. Indeed can they get any worse.

I notice his first actions did not go well with the populations. He is like Tramp. He loves the poorly educated. Not unlike the Swine mushrooms we have on this forum.

We do have a capitalist system but it was caged up and somehow they have managed to release themselves and now we have capitalism on steroids. And we all know what happens to people who take steroids right?



A comment from a Woman’s Own interview in 1987 is often repeated, but rarely in context: ”There is no such thing as society”. Its relevance was made explicit with the publication of the second volume of Margaret Thatcher’s autobiography in 1993:

Margaret Thatcher wrote:“they never quoted the rest. I went on to say: There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first. It’s our duty to look after ourselves and then to look after our neighbour. My meaning, clear at the time but subsequently distorted beyond recognition, was that society was not an abstraction, separate from the men and women who composed it, but a living structure of individuals, families, neighbours and voluntary associations.“

...you can learn something by sitting through his drivel Lordo, speaking at the Capitalists' lair, a man they fear, a man who demonstrates his hypothesis in much detail, a man for capitalism who would tear ''them'' down.

...Money is a medium of exchange, let's all try to remember that.

"It" being worth something is not new either, and, such interest exploits the risk one is willing to take toward producing something of greater value with it; such is supply and demand.

...and yet intentions count; corruption is apt to plunder nature, what is natural is easy prey to such reasoning.

Capitalism will end Lordo, do not worry, it is evolutionary, as in the Law of Entropy something else replacing it; why throw out the baby with the bathwater, going where in such a hurry?

...Money as a measure of all things requires accountability.

That's just lip service RW. He started by taking away workers rights. it's down hill to hell from than on. Stupid are people who believed every word he said and voted for him. Exact same thing Tramp did. First thing Tramp did was cut corporation tax while 50 million Americans are living below poverty line and probably double that cannot afford healthcare.
We have also seen how the Swine devastated the manufacturing base of UK too, all because she wanted to destroy Unions. We have idiots here who swear by her. Mind you I do too but at her. I hope she is in hell if there is such a thing. Which reminds me I need to do something about her at some point, just after I place a black carnation to her grave.

The Swine are everywhere.
