    No, no it does not. And too many younger people are thinking that it does.

    If Trump can become president with no political background then I don't understand why I need a resumé

    As Bernie would say, we have socialism for the rich and rugged individualism for everyone else.

    Socialism as a whole doesn’t work but socialist policies do. A look at FDRs presidency will tell you that lol.

    Listen, I’m not a socialist by any means. I believe in democratic socialism, ie socialism achieved via democracy. When there’s so much inequality in this country whether it be race or class, I think socialist policies are needed to level out the playing field. Too many people think socialism is free handouts when in reality, it’s voting on policies like healthcare, UBIs, even stimulus checks, etc. When you have Jeff Bezos being worth 44 billion dollars, I have a hard time believing that capitalism is fair.

    I can also say that socialism works and that too many older people have been manipulated to think that it doesn’t...or that folks are complacent with a broken system because they already “got theirs”

    Do you get back paid for the time you haven't had it? That's the case here in MD but unsure about your case. Hoping you get all of it.

    I agree with the bolded for sure. But full-blown socialism that many would want us to adopt is crazy talk.

    I’m not sure it’s as many as you think. Could be, though.

    I’m supposed to get back paid but I’m not sure if it’s going to be all at once or if they’re going to tack it on towards the end.

    I told myself that if I got backpaid, I’m going to tip heavy and bless any homeless people I see. It’s the least I could do, gotta spread the love especially to those who aren’t as lucky as me.

    Bezos is actually worth over $140billion and is on track to become a freaking TRILLIONAIRE.....

    That's what's happened to capitalism.....while good in theory, even practice for periods of time, what's going on now is more like pure greed with far too much money continually piling into too few hands and they're the only ones with any real power. So it's like a huge game of Monopoly and we're at the point where too few have hotels on Mt Vernon Ave and too many have Baltic Avenue and it's mortgaged. Only in THIS game, nobody can get out alive.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment
