By Vincent D'Emidio If I rent an apartment, then that's MY property, and I can do what I please. Besides which, as a Socialist, I do not even recognize the landlord's ownership.

By Tonya Wright That's ridiculous. Do you recognize the landlord's ownership when you my your rent?

By Vincent D'Emidio Of course, I must pay the rent, but once I do, I don't wanna hear a thing from the landlord's mouth.

I was just talking politically...and as a TRUE Socialist, no, I don't recognize this whole "vulture" Capitalist system. And, when I say Socialist, I don't mean "socialist light", like Alexandria Cortez...I mean pure socialist, like the late, great Che Guevara!

By Tonya Wright I can agree with the "once you pay the rent, I don't wanna hear a thing from the landlord's mouth" within reason and in compliance with the lease (things like hanging flags and whatnot from a balcony are usually spelled out in a lease." Socialism doesn't work. ever, so good luck with that. Maybe check out a nice move to Venezuela.

By Vincent D'Emidio Socialism CAN and DOES work if done with a little Social Engineering thrown in. The only ones who say that social engineering doesn't work are the "Archie Bunkers" of the world, who would be our primary targets of this programming. For example, some people are bullies, and since they get away with it so much, they have absolutely NO incentive to stop. Now, under our plan, we would CRIMINALIZE that kinda loathsome behaviour, and toughen penalties severely. If bullies were told that they would be severely dealt with for such behaviour, it might dissuade them. However, if we make examples out of bullies -- like a PUBLIC execution or two -- that would SCARE them so much that bullying would go down at least 90%! Believe me, Socialism, coupled with Social Engineering, DOES work!

Oh, and by the way, I don't wanna move to Venezuela (although I support Maduro 100%). Why should I do that when I'm having so much fun making these so-called "conservatives" lives MISERABLE by just staying here?

By Tonya Wright Not sure who you think you are making miserable. I am surrounded by conservatives and we've never been happier. Socialism does not work. Regardless, it's not coming here.

By Vincent D'Emidio So, you're "surrounded by", ahem, people who call themselves, ah, "conservatives", eh? No wonder you sound so ignorant when you talk!

"Socialism does not work...it's not coming here".

Well, we'll see about that. Revolution is coming and you, and your kind, will LOSE, trust me on this one.

By Vincent D'Emidio "We have all of the guns".

What?!!! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! You've gotta be kidding! Did you ever walk through the ghetto? Ah, most unlikely, most unlikely. One day, if you find the courage, take a walk through MY side of town. You will discover that the ghetto is the real "Gun Country". don't believe me? Well then, why are so-called "conservatives" (racists, really) so S-C-A-R-E-D to come to our areas, while we ain't afraid to go through yours...and taking what we wish?

By Tonya Wright We don't come to the ghetto because it isn't safe (nor is there any reason that I would need to go to the ghetto). You are free to come here safely because we are law abiding and aren't indiscriminately shooting people or things. Try to break into my house and that will be a different story. There are far far more law abiding citizens with guns than criminals. There would be war before socialism and we have the guns.

By Vincent D'Emidio Frankly, I don't care if you come down or not. I don't break into anybody's house, especially not yours. As far as "law-abiding citizens having more guns", that is irrelevant to me, and, quite frankly, I don't believe it. Where did you get that, ah, "statistic", hmm? Was it Sean "never smoked a joint in his life" Hannity , perhaps?

Since you are BRAINWASHED by the NRA, Rush Lint-brain and Fox News, you are unable to believe anything I gotta say, but I'm telling you that your neighbor MAY be a "law-abiding" citizen...now...but, what happens when he or she is despondent enough that they believe that firing that gun at somebody is the only answer? I've seen it happen a hundred times. A "nice guy" with no police record can turn into a killing machine, just like that.

By Vincent D'Emidio As for your "war" against Socialism, you had better check your statistics first, before you make any commitments. When poor people become ANGRY, rich folks will pay the piper. I don't know what your ethnicity is, but you talk like a rich, SPOILED, white girl. well, within a couple of years, white folks will be in the...what is the word?
Oh yeah, the M-I-N-O-R-I-T-Y! So, we po' folks will definitely have control of the vote! We probably won't even need a revolution, but, if you people (yes, I said, "you people") wanna make a war with us, my people will SQUASH you people like the insects that you are!

The best thing that you, and your capitalist kind, can do is surrender!
