I've read some parenting advice that suggests you get kids to do what you want by making them choose between two of the exact same thing. For example, rather than telling your kid to put their pajamas on, you ask them if they want the red pair or the blue pair tonight.

I imagine that's what American politics is like.

If you want your analogy to be more representative of modern American politics, you would ask the kid if he wants his pajamas on forward, or backward.

My youngest one just keeps screaming, "RON PAUL!" I have no idea what to do with her.

I'm afraid she's already gone, there's nothing we can do...

@dancinginfernal: It was blocked spoiler first of all. And he was not even cast or mentioned on the show. Cannot see how it is a spoiler.

All I'm saying is that the op of this thread explicitly states that if you mark text as a spoiler, you have to tell people what it's a spoiler for. And I haven't looked at the details of your spoiler, but if it's not a spoiler, then why did you mark it as one?

@marcsman,@feels:

Mark your freaking spoilers duders, Jesus. How many more mods have to lay down the law in this thread before you guys listen?

@alwaysbebombing,@teaoverlord: They're democracies are called socialist partly because of the cold war I think, just because their policies were often considered so far left leaning that they've passed into Marxism, which as you said, is completely untrue and pretty much impossible. I think the reason this ignorant/paranoid theory has persisted so long is because of Reagan and the rise of conservatives throughout our government. Although, that's partially biased on my part, because I can pretty much blame Reagan for anything and everything that's gone wrong in the past 30 years.

capitalism is bad

Even though I agree with you, most Americans believe it is an integral part of any Democracy. Of course, anyone outside of the United States knows that's bs, what with countries like Canada and Sweden thriving with Socialist Democracies, oh how my country's ignorance makes me sad sometimes :(

@dancinginfernal: Old news. And it was Friday.

Ah yeah, (of course) I saw that after I posted it. Should have clicked on the Forbes one instead, my bad.

I can't be the only one that saw this today, unless it's old news that Vince lost 350 million dollars yesterday.

@mattyftm: You mad GENIUS. I just remembered I have a pre-made pie crust, half a bag of pepperoni, and a can of pizza sauce at home. Just need some cheese and I know what I'm making for dinner tonight.

Also regarding lids, key lime, lemon meringue, neither of which have lids.

Those also aren't technically pies. They're made with what is essentially a biscuit base, not pastry.

He speaks of course, of the buttery biscuit base...
