    Don't feel so bad if your English isn't perfect... ( if you're in the Tea Party)

    There are "native English speakers" in the United States who are much, much worse. And they also seem to think that socialism, communism and fascism are words which can be used interchangeably.

    They are too ignorant I guess. How the president can be commie, nazi and racist at the same time?
    It's completely illogical.

    Logic and tea party are not compatible... I think we need to require more literacy tests in the United States... the level of stupidity exhibited here frightens me.

    No, that's a Trifecta! Or was that a book title?
    I only speak two languages, English and bad English.

    Самое смешное что никто не заметили это и исправлять его. Кажется что тупость это широко распространенная вещь там.

    Это да. К Сожалению. Но мне кажется что наши новости виноваты, потому-что они предпочитают показать глупости более всего.

    "Tea Party" - вот это политическая партия в Америке. Очень религиозная и консервативная.

    First of all, the guy should definitely learn how to spell words. But aside from his spelling, I don't see a problem there, I mean everyone's entitled to their opinion, at least they are for sure when it comes to issues like tracking down the difference between fascists, socialists and commies.

    Did you read the guy's sign? The teabaggers are not the ones "tracking down the differences." They are the ones who think fascist, communist and socialist all mean the same thing.

    But far be it for me to step on their rights to express their utter stupidity!

    Well, technically, they aren't exactly the same thing. Yet again, technically, more than just one term from the list can be applied to a person at the same time. There even have been precedents in history that show that. And the main point is, all the three terms denoting the social models mean something most of the people would normally avoid living in.

    So, it's natural that they get generalized into one term meaning what ppl in general try to keep away from. (including but not limited to, of course)

    No technical.... they are completely DIFFERENT things! Fascism is at the opposite end of the spectrum from Socialism, and Communism is a completely separate ideology.

    Good lord, please don't tell me I am the only American who knows this stuff!

    Deborski sounds like an American Dorm-Room Marxist/Communist/Socialist. Prove me to be incorrect.

    I see hundreds of lazy-Che-T-shirt-wearing kids riding on Parental Coattails replaced by Hard-Working Eastern European kids every year. Lose the dreadlocks, the "Tribal Tattoos" and the fucked up body "art" shit like the ears. You're a kid from Suburbia. (Deleted.L.)
    Я говорю на русском с моими сотрудниками.

    Вы говорите русский язык для не удалось идеологии.

    Do you REALLY want to play with me?



    The TEA Party was started as Taxed Enough Already. It was was unfortunately co-opted by the Religious and other idiots.

    My apologies to Lampada, and the Master Russian Crew and Members.

    I've been "here" long enough to know better.
    Even if I think/feel the Original Post is insulting; I shouldn't have lowered my own personal standards.

    извините
