  •  I used to know some actual Communists (9+ / 0-)

    They were all born in the 50's. Some had even been supporters of the Chinese Cultural Revolution (yes, I know, how dumb is that?).

    Had Ms. Debate Looney met any of them, she would probably not have realized that they were sneaky subversives until she had spent considerable time with them or asked questions designed to reveal their evil intentions. They had regular jobs and families, wore the same clothes, drove the same cars and lived in the same houses as freedom-loving capitalists.

    Of course, they were atheists, but so am I and I have never been a Commie.

    •  I knew a few Weathermen in the '60s (8+ / 0-)

      and used to argue with them when they offered up Marxist ideas.

      I thought  the country needed a vast cultural change -- a change in thinking. They thought the country needed to shake down the Owners until we got back everything they had stolen.

      The Weathermen were right; I was wrong. Their ideas are even more right today than they were then.

      •  God bless you. (2+ / 0-)
