"Does anyone else remember the Western Hemisphere's only functioning socialist paradise? In that bygone land, the top income-tax bracket for millionaires was 90 percent. Thanks to a heavily -- and proudly -- unionized workforce, collective bargaining resolved most labor-management disputes. To stave off recession, the government instituted the largest public-works program in Country X's history, from which its now largely unwitting citizens still benefit today." [editor's note: If this doesn't raise some comments (given the present-day domination of the GOP by actual socialists?), nothing will - SAT] (03/09/12)
