Love the excuses

Couldn't possibly be the fault of giving the land to city-dwelling cronies that don't know anything about farming.

Didn't the Soviet Union try this "all land owned by the state" and everybody starved not to mention the worse ecological disaster in the world?

Of course it did, Diana!

It never ceases to amaze me (between bouts of policy-induced depression, that is) that this totally discredited, morally and economically bankrupt ideology keeps getting dusted off and tried by those who, in their utter arrogance, presume that their experiment will be different than all the failed attempts of the past because they somehow know more, or are more enlightened or have purer motives, etc. What utter hogwash!

All you have to know about agriculture in Zimbabwe is this: When the nation gained its independence, it not only was able to feed itself but was a large net exporter of food to the rest of southern Africa. Now under the Marxist rule of Robert Mugabe, the country is a heavy net importer of food.

I suppose that soon we'll see the video clips of starving Zimbabweans (if they're not out there already) and be bombarded by the UN globocrats and their their allies among the nongovernmental organizations and the Democrat Party to pony up for food aid to save the Zimbabweans from...their government. Will it ever end?

It's always tempting to take from successful people.

They sure as hell are doing nothing about it. Sad

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
