    Large corporations get corporate welfare and enslave their workers. Where is this going?

    Kennedy would be kicked out of today’s ultra-left Democrat Party.
    He was actually proud to be an American.

    Ask what you can do for your corporation, if you’re lucky enough to be owned by one.

    Many of today’s liberals would say “Ask not what you can do for your country, ask what you can get from your country.”

    @T Hicks

    ^^ I think that was Obama’s real campaign slogan.

    Everyone had pretty much rejected Oswald, he was a hater and anarchist. I wouldn’t confuse him with a “Marxist”. I wouldn’t confuse the ultra-right in the TEA party with “patriots”, either.

    “do for your country” was something few in the corporate support committee USA, otherwise known as “the Republican Party under Reaganomics”, have supported. It IS the home of the “me, me, me, generations”. The problem is a P.T. Barnum situation however, with the real power at the top pointing the way to the economic egress for their followers, while they rape, and rake in the profits.

    The dogma Bok barks just has the gullible puppies rolling on their backs, pleading for their bellies to be scratched, dittoheads, dittoheads.

    Whereas the Republican/Tea Party would prefer he said “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask how you can pay for more tax breaks for the wealthy and corporate subsidies.”

    “If by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal”, then I’m proud to say I’m a "Liberal.”

    Bok certainly has one thing correct here. That is the tone of the posts here. A few of the liberals agreeing with his 2013 definition of Oswald. And then pointing out the supposed evils in the ultra conservatives and corporations here. That simply is not the total truth at all. Everything is relative and comes in degrees, some corporations are far more evil than others, just as some people are far more evil than others.

    And then the many ultra conservatives (at least they seem to be far more as in general they post far more, with far more virulent posts). Who seem to think that anybody that thinks to the left of Rush Limbaugh is some kind of an American hating Communist (which is also not true by a long ways). Some of you should be ashamed to be making the kinds of general and even hating types of posts you make.

    While the real truth is that what is needed here are more posters that do not absolutely live on one extreme or the other. At least if we are going to have a reasoned and even polite discussion of the many issues facing our country today. The actual truth almost always lies somewhere in between the extremes of any issue. Would it even be possible at all to have a better tone to the posts here? RT, where are you?

    Just as Congress and president Obama BOTH need to get together to address our problems. But such cooperation for the good of all should also exist even on this comment board, if it can not be done here then it can not be done there either. If either president Obama or Congress fail, then we all will fail. Or am I being to obtuse for some here??

    I don’t understand this cartoon and I don’t understand a lot of the discussion here. I suspect some of those posting are simply attacking without much thought.
    Uncle Joe’s post quoting Kennedy is, however, very much to the point.
    Liberals are not socialists, and a lot of socialists are neither Marxists nor communists. Oswald claimed to be a Marxist, but most likely he knew very little about Marxism. No real Marxist would have thought that an assassination was a revolutionary action. I have known a lot of Marxists, and a fair number of communists (meaning members of various Communist parties), and I have never heard a single one defend Oswald.

    What you are saying here is certainly true enough, and I am not a conspiracy theorist by any means. But also, a lot of even more reasonable Americans certainly find it at least somewhat suspicious that Oswald is then himself shot and killed by Ruby, who himself who just happens to have terminal cancer. Admittedly, this is the stuff that conspiracy theorists feed upon!!

    I’m not a Marxist, and I’m opposed to Communism. I’m a pacifist socialist anarchist. (And not a liberal, though I have a lot of liberal friends.)

    You say, “The Left simply can not accept the fact that one of their own, a communist, killed the president.”
    It would be just as (in)accurate to say, “The right simply cannot accept the fact that one of their own, a Nazi, killed six million Jews.”

    Martens: It IS important to realize that John Hinkley Jr., and “Squeaky” Frome, were of the same class. That they failed in their “missions” was the real success, with Ford and Reagan. Assassins, all through history, have been more anarchist than associated with any rational or opposing political party. McKinley was also killed by an anarchist. Booth was a ticked off southerner, of a breed that continues to exist today, but with only slightly less “action oriented philosophy”.

    Negotiation, and settlement, were the objectives of the Constitution, and amendments, not constant obstructionism, from EITHER or ANY party or “side”. The term United, as in states, DOES imply an intent of cooperation, self-defense, and yes, community good and welfare.

    Those who confuse economic systems with social systems, continue to rant loudly, and wrongly, about issues, and will, apparently, continue long to do so.

    This is the kind of post that I was talking about, and would like to see more of, regardless of just which leaning of the political spectrum the poster comes from!!
