Bottom line... Did you (a) comprehend the Somalia comment and (b) do you agree?

And yeah, it is doctor, at least that's what the president of South Hampton Institute of Technology signed on the sheepskin...

Ironically, even though people (usually Americans) want to call the NHS socialized medicine, the NHS does not produce its drugs or medical hardware. They buy them from private companies.

And it's the same with public education in the US. Educational books and other supplies are sourced from private companies. What is wrong with having a teacher being a public employee?

Even with "privatised" education, also known as charter schools, teachers are still being paid with taxpayer funds.

How privatised can that be?

Re: Work ethic and "success."

The public education part is a joke. School corporations spend lots of money on books and technology instead of seeking lower prices. The private sector is making a killing there.

Because teaching biology in Kentucky is soooo much different than teaching biology in Tennessee...

The actual bottom line is that Somalia has nothing to do with any comment I made. I’m still waiting for you to connect the dots between Somalia and the post of mine you quoted.

Did you just make a mistake replying to my quote? That would have made sense many posts ago but after several opportunities to correct it, that must not be the case.

So what’s the actual point you were trying to make, doctor.

you said : We can do without governments.

John117 said: Somalia has no government.

Both of you made a general reference to "government."

Good lord. Look at every post of mine with your own eyes. I challenge you to find it. You are mistaken.

I thought Doctor John was too, but apparently he thinks thereís some connectiontion between my pointing out better examples of socialism at work in the United States and Somalia.

Was your initial post to me about Somalia a mistake? Or do you still maintain you have a point?


And could you help NextTimeAround by explaining my words do not appear anywhere below?

Re: Work ethic and &quot;success.&quot;

The Somalia post was in direct response to the post above it.

Subsequent posts seem to have ignored this. Feel free to consider it an error on my part.

No problem. Thank you 🙏. I thought it started as an honest mistake but John continues on. So the doctorís point is baffling.

I am not a libertarian by any stretch of the imagination.
