Nearly ecologically collapsed. Reading is fun isn't it.

And there is a significant difference evil-wise between killing
9 million and 20? Above a certain level of mass murder the real
difference is statistical not moral and if you think otherwise
then I feel sorry for you.

Save your preaching for someone who cares. We were not even
discussing socialist countries but the USSR. Which I assume
intellectual retards such as yourself do not count as properly
socialist. I have no misguided ideas, you just cannot master
the most basic reading skills.

No they have not. There has been a slight drop in the last
few years but that is all. As I have said repeatedly it is
impossible for average real wages to drop in a growing 
economy in the long run. Nor does your claim necessarily
contradict mine.

This you are making up or have failed to hear properly. 
Fantasy in fact. Several *thousand* dollars? Yeah right.
Let's see your source.

No I hate being the victim of Greens and bureaucrats.
