“I believe in the free market!”

“You mean like you have faith in God? You don't know exactly who or what He is. His ways and means are a mystery. His purposes are hidden from you and unknowable by one who is so much less than Him. You believe He loves you. He loves not just life in general but you individually. God knows and loves you. Like God, rich free market capitalists love and care for you. Is that what you believe? Yes. I see. The rich and their corporations are our salvation. We must have faith if we are to be saved.”

“If I'm smarter or quicker than others, I deserve the money I make off of them.”

“So there's no such thing as fraud? Con artists aren't criminals, they're just smarter than we ordinary people? Caveat emptor is the whole of the law? If you're quicker, stronger than me and intimidate me in such a way that I give you what you want of me, is that exchange based on the threat of violence not a crime?”

The Market is self regulating.

hee hee HEEEEE

Unfortunately for the general public/population - The market figures that self regulation to mean, that when they fuck up and crash markets, that, the Public MUST bail them out (bailout to include millions & billions in bonuses for those who just crashed the markets) the Public receiving nothing in return, not even a fuck you very much "Thank You Card".

What really sucks is that Obama promised to bail out the underwater mortgages. Instead, he gave the banks the money and let them go ahead and foreclose as well. Now we see commercials touting the blessings of renting those homes from the banksters aimed at the people who used to possess the debt ridden shitholes. America, land of the all time losers and a handful of winners in the RepubuDem Party of suckers of billionaire dicks.

(edit) Yep & Amen - you are preachin to the choir.

Edit: & I do belive that Obama would really have liked following through with bailing out "real people" who were hurt by the market crash - BUT - Obama was only 1 man - he never had the support in the rest of government to see that the average injured working person was made whole.

Yes - it is exactly why Drumpf is being so successful in destroying this country = He Has Majority Support in his destruction from the Republicans in office (not to forget the handful of those in office who call themselves Dem that are also complicit).

Worse - besides the truly depraved (white supremacists) that flocked to support Drumpf - millions of other people also voted for him as well as for those Republicans and turncoat Dems that are destroying this country (and WORLD) as fast as possible.

I wonder what THAT would be. Isn't a free market kind of like a Unicorn(?), talked about in tales/legends but non-existent. The only markets that I know actually DO exist - are totally rigged. Rigged to support only the very few at the expense of everyone else!
