    A certain party targets Bath Iron Works

    Their action would either increase again the cost of US Shipbuilding or put Bath out of business.

    So you think it's wrong that they are wanting to enforce the agreement the State made with BIW?

    They're Democrats. By definition, anything they do is wrong. Why they aren't all simply declared Enemies of The People, dragged out into the streets and shot in the back of the neck is beyond me /s

    I'll be sure not to ever make a deal with you since follow through might be questionable

    That's the Trump way of doing business after all.

    The yard will not be competitive. American yards are the most expensive already. Some may prefer having a job. I guess it may be time for Bath to move or just shut it down all together?

    History shows it’s the leftists are ones that murders a country’s conservatives. We shall see what happens in Virginia if Northam / Bloomberg backed gun grabbing policies are enacted.

    Can't survive without massive government subsidies? Sounds like socialism to me.

    Let me guess, you also believe that the Nazis were "leftist" because they were National Socialists, don't you.

    Ever think about forming a coherent sentence?

    Right wing: Hitler, Franco, Mussolini, Pinochet, Suharto 65-66, Chiang Kai-shek, Bodo League

    Your list includes two tyrannical dictators where right and left does not matter. Both Stalin (psychotic) and Pol Pot (ethnic and genocide) were indiscriminate in who they killed. In short they killed anybody and everybody. Same could be pretty much said about Mao.

    Imperial Japan, Shah of Iran, Islamic State of Iran, Sauds, Myanmar SLORC/Military dictatorship, The Rajapaksas, Rios Montt, the Argentine Junta, Yayah Khan, numerous Latin American dictatorships/quasi dictatorships (Nicaragua, El Salvador, Brazil, Peru, 1940s Chile etc.). A literal cast of thousands.

    All were left wing, however. All were Marxists. That they did not restrict themselves to killing 'class enemies' does not change that any nore than Hitler using the term 'Socialist' makes him left wing.

    Posts like this beg the eternal internet 'chicken & egg' question - has the internet made people dumber & more brainwashed by ideology or were there always this many people who were like that, but we just didn't encounter them?

    I generally tend to think it is more the latter than the former, but the sperad of ahistorical ideological idiocy like 'Nazis gun grabbing socialists' is definitely an internet product. The process of believing that makes you more stupid if you weren't already.

    Fun fact: dictators don't care about left/right, only about being on top. Ideology is just a prop to them.

    I guess I see now why there are so few people posting on the board these days.
