Margaret Thatcher on Socialism

Sometimes I think it would be a breath of fresh air to see the leaders of the US duke it out over policy like they do with the Prime Minister and the House of Commons. Rather than canned, sanitized speeches, a little heated debate might be a good thing to clear the air, and put policies under a higher level of scrutiny.

Next, a retrobite from a CBC Interview with Thatcher from 1983:

My favorite Socialist joke of the moment:

What's the difference between capitalist hell and socialist hell?

In capitalist hell, the damned must lie on a bed of nails while a steam roller drives over them. In socialist hell, it is exactly the same, except sometimes there are no nails, sometimes the steam roller is broken and sometimes the driver is too drunk to work.
