Simple economics.

Simple economics.

The free market doesn’t exist. Every market has some rules and boundaries that restrict freedom of choice. A market looks free only because we so unconditionally accept its underlying restrictions that we fail to see them. How ‘free’ a market is cannot be objectively defined. It is a political definition. The usual claim by free-market economists that they are trying to defend the market from politically motivated interference by the government is false. Government is always involved and those free-marketeers are as politically motivated as anyone. Overcoming the myth that there is such a thing as an objectively defined ‘free market’ is the first step towards understanding capitalism.

Honestly, where is the Ted Kennedy of our Generation?!  Where is the next Howard Zinn?  Why won’t the Dems come out and take a stand to support the people that supported them into office; their supposed BASE?!  Harry Reid?  Nancy Pelosi? 

Wisconsin, you are fighting “…for the very soul of this country.”

"What is the price, we ask the other side?!…How much more do we have to give, to the private sector and to business?!…WHEN DOES THE GREED STOP?!?!?!"
