I had a good half year run at GrumpySloth.com. I am grateful that John Hawkins gave me a chance to write professionally for his new startup site which is similar to Watchmojo.com and its sister sites. That being writing “list articles” (Top 10 or Top 20 lists) on not just popular culture but even a few political and cultural lists as well. Hawkins is also a columnist for Townhall.com and runs his own conservative news site rightwingnews.com.
Thank you, Mr. Hawkins. You and your mother are great people to work with. I hope we can stay in touch in the future.
With that said, check this piece I wrote for the Sloth regarding the Seven Reasons Socialism is Bad:
1. Socialism and Communism are really the same thing: If you don’t believe me, ask Webster’s Dictionary. Two definitions of Socialism according to Webster’s: A. Any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods B. A system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state Now here is Webster’s definition of Communism: A. A system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed Both definitions make references to Marxism, and the fact that both advocate the abolishment of private property. The only difference between the two is how communism may usher socialism in with you and me getting the James Bond treatment. However, it’s the villains making the kill before we can.
