[quote="Aspiegaming"]When will socialists learn that the idea that "perpetual growth is a myth" is itself a myth?*

I think it's real.

What do you think of people who sneer at the mere suggestion that humans, monkeys, and apes may have had a common ape-like ancestor, but who seem to feel a sense of pride in believing that the first human was created from a handful of dirt?

Wrong?  No.

Pointless?  Probably.  Only diseases can be cured.  Autism is not a disease.

Even more unfortunate is the fact that Ross Perot died from leukemia on July 9, 2019 at age 89 in Dallas, Texas.

May he rest in peace.
