Sure it is.

15 people a day are killed by illegals behind the wheel of a car...usually drunk.

How many people die each day from mass shootings?

the only thing I found that could even be construed and stretched to fit your definition came from foxnews....the source of your information matters

The receptionist for the company sits at a desk, answer phones, direct calls, takes messages.

The project manager for the company goes on site walks, works up bid quotes, puts submittal packages together, order parts for the job, meets with clients to solve issues, solves job site issues as they arise, makes sure the project completion documents are in order for final payment, makes sure the project is completed on time and is to spec.

Plus deal with trouble employees doing the work.

Of course the project manager is gonna get paid more as their job responsibilities are far greater the the receptionist. Plus being a good project manager requires a far greater skill sets then a receptionist.

Is that what CNN told you, the Maginot line failed? Actually, the Germans had to invade another country to attack France, they avoided the Maginot line and went through Belgium, so it did what it was suppose to do, stop a direct attack from Germany.

If the French Army would have done their job, they could have cut off the advancing German army, but they were just no match for the destruction laid down by the Nazi's. Not a knock against the French, but the Germans were steam rolling everyone. Now, if you think Mexican's are Nazi's, and can accomplish what Adolph did, then you might have a point. Otherwise, you don't. Apples and oranges, but CNN probably didn't tell you anything else.

So, in contrast, there is no reason to have anti-aircraft weapons, because, after all, Pearl Harbor was bombed. I mean, if something fails at one point in time in history, it must prove it correct for eternity, right ? OMG

Sounds like crap to me. You should consider Russia. Equal pay regardless of work output or knowledge destroys initiative. Why should I work hard, I will receive the same for working or screwing off?

I hope you have some redeeming qualities but your view of "the perfect world" is a loser for those with ambition and ideas.

And you need to re-read my post, and find somewhere in that particular post, where I suggested that YOU were on said team.

I guess sarcasm doesn't come across well in my post. Should have included one of these

The post was my, evidently unsuccessful, attempt to highlight the idiocy of socialism.

it's not sarcasm that got missed... several responses to you are confusing because your avatar is similar to softshot's and they believe they are talking to him, not you... I have had to go back and re-read posts to get them straight myself... fyi

who has the guts to honestly answer these questions?

Do you believe that constant never ending economic growth is sustainable?
No, at some point it will be physically impossible, and it will be detrimental to the quality of life long before that.
Do you believe the people working to create that growth do NOT deserve a fair slice of the Pie?
Well, they should be compensated for their labour in a way that incentivises initiative and hard work. "Deserve" and "fair" are both dependent of judgement.
Do you believe that an ever shrinking elitist class with unimaginable wealth control more and more while working people get less and less per year compared to the growth they create?
Yes, it is readily apparent.

Do you think this is just?
Justice is an illusion, depending on many things that are not in any way objective or quantifiable. I think it's undesirable for many and complicated reasons.
Do you believe in cleaning up your messes?
Yes, on the pool table as well as anywhere else.
Do you believe your ability to shoot someone is more important than their ability to receive medical care for their wounds?
It's a false dichotomy. If you intended to make it a true dilemma you should have the second part be "more important than their right not to get shot". Even then it all depends. Both parties will give up rights, not just one or the other. A dialogue must take place wherin such matters are discussed in order to establish the willingness of both parties to give up rights in order to achieve a certain outcome, and that outcome must be continually evaluated and tested, always keeping in mind that regaining a lost right is far more complicated than losing it in the first place.

Do you know of Theodore Roosevelt?
Not in any great detail. His views on tax are consistent with those of social democratic countries.
