Conservatives Don't Even Know What Socialism Is

This is from Webster's New World College Dictionary, Third Edition:

socialism: 1 any of various theories or systems of the ownership and operation of the means of production and distribution by society or the community rather than by private individuals, with all members of society or the community sharing in the work and the products

The key words there are "ownership" and "means of production." Income redistribution is not part of the definition.

Now for the video portion of our program:

Great video, but I just wish Stuart Varney would shut the f*ck up.

What ever happened to the Brits?

Up until the early 1980s, there was much to admire about Britain, from Red Wedge to CND to Arthur Scargill.

These days, it seems Britain has turned into the 51st state of America.

Tony Blair got a lot of grief for being Bush's "poodle" and joining America's illegal, immoral invasion of Iraq. But the fact is, any other modern-day Brit leader, Labour or Tory, would probably have done the same thing.

And the next time America invades some country, you could be sure the Brits will mindlessly join us in thumbing their noses at the rest of the world.

Like I said, what the f*ck ever happened to Britain?

It used to be one of the coolest nations on earth, from "The Prisoner" to The Beatles to "Fawlty Towers" to The Clash.

Now, it's a dull, little uninteresting place that produces f*cking morons like Varney and Christopher Hitchens.

In Stuart Varney's case, I think it's much less important that he doesn't know what socialism is. It's much more important for his bank account that he knows what it ISN'T!
