Specter of Communism in NYC

Hat Tip: Brian B.

They are loud and proud and coming out of the Communist closet evidently… This country is infected with their leftist, Marxist, communist diatribes and dogma – we need to clean house of this disease before it takes America down. Their agenda and twisted ideology needs to be rejected by all Americans. I disagree with the narrator – this is about as unpatriotic as it gets in America. It is no accident that RT America put this out. It is Russian/communist propaganda. Here’s their description:

As the first sentence of the Communist Manifesto goes, “the specter of communism hangs over Europe.” In the US, the specter of communism hangs over the bottom floor of a brick building on the West side of downtown New York City. Communism is no bogeyman, and more and more people are flocking there to discuss new solutions to America’s economic and social problems.

Subversive, dangerous and shameful…

THE AMERICAN DREAM – Part 2

By: AJ

Ben Lang is only 15 years old, but with an idea and a computer, he’s created quite a business for himself.

During these tough economic times Ben thought he could help people transform their “junk” into cash by creating an eBay website and selling their unwanted items for them online. Instead of a 30% commission, he only charges 15% and he’s made about $4,000 so far.

Ben’s idea helps put cash in the hands of his customers, himself, and the State and Federal government via the taxes he pays on the income he earns. The customers who purchase the items from Ben’s eBay website are also helped in that they’re able to get the items they want.

But it doesn’t stop there because Ben, like most entrepreneurs, donates some of what he earns to charity. So you can see that there are many winners and no losers through Ben’s idea and efforts.

The free market system that our Founding Fathers gave us (i.e. capitalism) is what makes this American Dream possible for Ben and all those who benefit from what Ben has created.
