Things which peeve me Thursday – Communism

The classical definition of communism is the political philosophy in which the government owns the means of production.

In a press conference response to President Bush’s call for off-shore drilling,Maurice Hinchey, Communist representative from New York, said, “Should the people of the United States own refineries? Maybe so. Frankly, I think that’s a good idea. Then we could control the amount of refined product much more capably that gets out on the market…”

To oil executives at a House hearing, Maxine Waters, Communist representative from California, said, “This liberal will be all about socializing, uh, uh…would be about…basically taking over and the government running all of your companies.” I believe she meant to say nationalize the oil companies, but was unable to think of the word.
