The Feudal Future

This "get your own" dream the Republicans have foisted on the American people does not work except for a few.  Anyone who believes it can work for everyone has never played Monopoly.  Unregulated free market capitalism can only produce one result, someone will hold a monopoly of all assets.

More than a few churches have helped with this false hope through the "prosperity gospel", God will reward the holist among us, if your rich it's good, your doing his work, the more you get the better person you are.

Bust the unions - cut or flatten out the real income of American workers.  Corporations and governments cut retirement and health plans, then tell workers "hey your in charge of it, go to the market and invest" with the scalpers and commissioned advisers and what will the retiring masses face?  Poverty.  Many of the nations elderly are facing a feudal future, fend for yourself, beg if you must.  Read a little about the feudal system, it endured far longer than capitalism has so far, and it worked nicely for the wealthy, so well they are going to bring it back.

    1. Joe's a friggin idiot who identifies with the Bush views that everything is a simple black or white - for or against - don't listen to experts - free market - send in the military solution.

    To show you how out of it some idiot Republicans are, one local Republican is reported to have said that people should stop complaining about high gas prices and instead invest some money in the oil companies.

    1. Yea I see that all the time, I had (he sold his company for 92 million) a customer who owned a Cessna Citation jet. One day he told me how nice is was to not go through the airport gates and lines, having a jet to drive out to saves an hour before departure. He told me in total seriousness I should get my own jet. Who the hell did he think he was talking to?
