Half of my personality is a hopeless romantic. The other half, well, is an asshole.

It seems that there aren't quite as many active Imgflippers as there used to be...or am I losing my marbles?
I'll try, but there's no guarantee that it would get featured.I've had a few that didn't feature recently. The most recent bothers me because of all the T&A that's been posted here without a second thought, but show a cartoon GIF of a unicorn sticking it's butt in a little girls window and farting rainbows? (you've been warned) <a href="https://imgflip.com/gif/1sf48d"><img src="https://i.imgflip.com/1sf48d.gif" title="made at imgflip.com"/></a> If you click it, that is what you'll see. No, the mods are very uneven about how they handle what features and what doesn't. I'll see what I can come up with and make a post. If it doesn't feature, I'll do a POST YOUR UNFEATURED SUBMISSIONS HERE post.
Why Socialism Fails...
It's kind of hard to respond to a blanket statement like this. When do people decide that they're better off on the dole than actually working. I'm not talking about the slackers that are refuse all work: I'm talking about the general population. If the very basic needs are not met by working, the only options are charity/government handouts or a criminal career. I'm not sure how familiar you are with Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, but it's standard material not only for psychology classes, but for business classes at the college level. The most basic needs such as food, clothes, shelter, and health. If working can't cover those basic needs, then it's up to the community to pick up the slack of the low prices they pay for the goods and services from that employer. I'm not talking McDonald's or Walmart, but there are several, what you might call, mainstream employers, that shirk on wages. Good example: when we moved here in 2000, I landed a job that, while the pay wasn't great, was a lot better than fast food or service work. It was unskilled labor, and I took it. When I got laid off, (very common in this area anyway) I had a guy offer me a job as a saw operator because I was an experienced sawman that could use a radial arm saw and I still had 99.999% of my fingers. So, what did he want to pay me for 10 years experience? $2 an hour less than I was making unskilled labor. Thanks, but no thanks. I went back to my unskilled labor, although the next job was a dollar an hour less. Right now, workers are starting out in semi-skilled jobs in this area anywhere from $1 to $3 an hour less than they need to meet the bottom tier of Maslow's Hierarchy. And businesses are crying for employees. Totally the opposite of what it was 8 or 9 years ago. So, would you work for less than what it costs you to live?
