Why are you switching from socialism to communism?


Nevermind. I'm getting dizzy.

Don't blame Dave, he's British. His socialist government has stripped him of any independent thought or desire to be in control of his own life. So when things don't go his way, all he can do is sit around on his butt and whine about how it's everyone else's fault but his own.

If you treat people like children, then they will act like children. What we are seeing with Dave is a full grown British man acting very much like a child, thanks to his government.

But, of course, it's all America's fault.

That is true here, too. You get rewarded for laziness and lack of ambition.

What you call True communism does not exist and would not work very well either! As for the pay in America. Where I work we have what we call a pay scale! ICS which is my job code is a level three. Now there are a couple guys on the same pay scale that make more than me but that's because they have been their longer. One guy has been their 9 years I think he said! If you meet expectations on your annual eval you get a raise! Now the ICS lead is alot higher pay scale than I am so that's a dollar more on the hour than my scale is. Most sales floor positions are a level 2 which makes less than me. But then again most sales floor positions ain't as demanding as what I do. My job is considered physically demanding and requires some training. Used to be they would pay extra if you got licenced on the power equipment but they stopped doing that. I suspect to many folks abused it. I heard that some folks that were buddies with the trainer would get licenced when they really weren't properly trained and never run the Equipment. By the way the Government does not yet tell Companies in America what job pays what! We do have a minamun wage whitch is the Goverment saying this is the least you can pay any employee but most places pay more. One of the things we don't want in America is the Government decideing who makes 8 an hour and who makes ten an hour! Mostly the way it works is the company tell's you how much they pay for a job and you take it or leave it.

Once at 10 Downing Street during the war, both were on the floor on their hands and knees sounding out "Oink, oink" and "Meow, meow" when the Archbishop of Canterbury walked in. He must have thought his prime minister had gone absolutely bonkers!]
