We are spending public money on private companies for defense on and from threats abroad, labeled as good, and preventing and hacking away domestic protection spending on lazy overpaid public employees who staff things like the FDA, education, and consumer protection, all labeled as wasteful, hurdles to innovation and competition, and therefore our #1 enemy to growth, choice, and freedom. I’m a numbers and policy man, someone, please explain.

Why should they be paid as though they were? Unequal compensation is at the very heart of the Capitalist system.

Poor people should hire well-connected K Street lobbyists to advocate policies that would negate the policies advocated by well-connected K Street lobbyists hired by rich people and powerful corporation. It’s so obvious — the market at work.

It will never happen because the .1% psychos own and control the world.

Welcome to ‘Planet Slaves For Ever’.

At this point the only solution is a world-wide armed revolt.

Yeah, sure….
