One other thing. If Big Business and the wealthy were so fair in their treatment of their employees and the average citizen, we wouldn't need welfare. Companies would take care of their loyal and hardworking constituents as a way to say, "Hey, thanks. I realize that as a worker, you are the backbone of my company and this is how I will show my appreciation to you. As a human being and not an investment." Objectifacation of people is WHY we have what you so harshly criticize....
Seriously Gast? You seriously believe that that will be sustainable well into the future? I have no problem with wealth, however, I do have a problem with exploitation and that's exactly what the problem is here. As people are forced to work harder and harder for less and less pay, the amount of people who can afford the things you mentioned becomes less and less. Sure, it might be as you say now, but it wasn't as good as it was in past times and its just getting worse. Perhaps you need to open up a bit to reality and look into the future and the impact a few people have on the whole instead of just looking at the present and saying everything is fine. Cause mark my words, its coming to head as is, its only a matter of time before things get truly bad and that's when things will change. For better or worse, I know not, but they will. After all, you can't sustain this kind of selfish behavior infinitely. Its called balance. Most basic law in the universe....
Good points all, Mark. And no, I didn't agree with the Clarance Thomas thing. Newt I oppose on more ideological grounds than anything else. I do believe you should be able to sell your organs as you see fit, after all, it is your body. But as for the economic reasoning, it's been 30 years of the same ole same ole and the answer from the right seems to be more of the same. Really? How much more can a few gorge themselves before the whole system suffers a massive coronary? Think about it. More executives ad stockholders make more of the wealth whilst more of the regular work harder for less pay and have less disposable income to invest back into our economy therefore making the whole system groan more under its own weight. Where does it end? When it finally implodes from not having enough sustenance to support itself cause some people think they are entitled? Well, if it comes to that, none of us will have to worry cause we'll all be too busy trying to fulfill basic living needs whilst living in a state of anarchy. So sure, keep the idea alive. Then maybe one day we'll all be TRULY equal....
My apologies if I offended, but I meant angry, childish and wrong from HIS point of view, not mine. I myself feel that your opinions are fine. A tad hostile, sure, but considering what is being said of yourself and your views, that's to be expected. What I meant by that statement was that's how he would construe them and then use them against you. Again, I apologize for the misunderstanding. Perhaps I should be less eloquent and more straight up in the future. Again, no offense intended.
I don't know how much of what gast says that he truly believes, but I DO believe alot of the more distressing things he says are designed to elicit exactly that type of reaction so he can cite how angry, childish and wrong opposing views to his are. Best thing to d is laugh, cry or puke in your mouth , but just ignore those comments otherwise. To respond to them is giving him the type of attention he wants so he can use it as ammunition later.
You can't, (and shouldn't,) legislate morality. That's an individuals mandate. That being said, Clinton, (mostly,) did a good job at his time in the White House, whereas Newt at hi time in the Senate pretty much pursued inane agendas that sadly brought negative light to a once worthy party.
Tell them Japs to look on craigslist! ;)
