My point is you rarely have anything good to say about anything capitalist in nature, but you're always ready to condemn it and spew the wonders of government and socialism. When was the last time... more
Not to mention the pollution, the noise, and the mocking (mimic) of God. And I certainly did not get any of your demented notion that Amadeus was critical of the wealthy class per se. There are... more
