Republicans Continue To Throw A Hissy Fit Because Capitalism Seems To Be Working In Indiana

Very often when Republicans talk about our economy you’ll hear many of them talk about letting consumer power decide things. The theory behind this absurd notion is that businesses will be forced to behave ethically and morally because “the consumer” will force them to. It’s one of those theories that sounds great, but almost never works. The […]

The NAACP and Sterling: The Revolution Will Not Be Funded

LA Clippers owner (“owner” a term with chattel slavery attachments if ever there were one) Donald Sterling made his billions by excluding and refusing Black and Latino tenants and through exploiting Korean ones. “Owner” is appropriate in this context because he then used the fortunes he made from buying, selling and excluding homes for people […]

Exploitative Capitalism – It Will Destroy Us All

Often, people who are sick of the debate over healthcare, guns and everything else here in the US will say how they just wish they could move to away to some other country, Canada is usually the number one choice. National healthcare, homicides by firearms just 1/6th of the United States, and gay marriage was […]

What Every American Should Know about the Biblical Definition of Capitalism: Part I

Thoughts Concerning a ‘Biblical Definition of Capitalism,’ and the Millions of Deceived Christians Who Mistake Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations as a Long-Lost Pauline Epistle, and Who are Convinced that Karl Marx and Judas Iscariot Do the Watusi Nightly in Dante’s Ninth Circle of Hell, yet Who Think that the Holy Spirit was Just Playing […]

Conservatives Love Socialism… When it Comes to Socializing Their Losses

Conservatives claim to hate socialism. In most (if not all) cases, it’s because of one of two things: They don’t actually understand what socialism really is, or They mistakenly confuse socialism or socialist leaning policies for fascism, communism, and/or Leninism. To be fair, these people shouldn’t be confused with well educated citizens, economists, and pundits […]

Phil Robertson, Duck Dynasty, Capitalism and Conservative Hypocrisy

I knew of Duck Dynasty — how couldn’t I have?  Their merchandise is everywhere.  Though I’ve never been a regular viewer of the actual show on A&E, I have seen it a couple of times.  For what it’s worth, it’s fairly humorous.  Pointless, but humorous.  When I read the comments Phil Robertson made during his […]

A Fact About Trickle-Down Economics Republicans Really Don’t Want You to Think About

Pretty much anyone who follows politics knows that the economic theory Republicans subscribe to is something called trickle-down economics, sometimes referred to as “Reaganomics” since Ronald Reagan is most responsible for unleashing this economic ideology on the United States. Any mention of raising taxes or ending the gigantic scam of trickle-down economics causes Republicans to […]

Rand Paul Proves His Ignorance, says “Liberals Have No Idea of How Capitalism Works”

In all the hoopla over just how ridiculous Texas Senator Ted Cruz has been lately, along with his seemingly endless onslaught of asinine statements these last few months, I had almost forgotten about Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.  For all the attention Ted Cruz has received, we really shouldn’t forget that Rand Paul was one of […]

Capitalism, Socialism, Communism—In The End, It’s All The Same

In this world there’s a lot of rhetoric about which economic philosophy works best, which produces the most corruption and just how much power and money is too much. Each advocate claims the ideologies they oppose lead to economic destruction while claiming theirs leads to the greatest economic prosperity. I hate to break it to […]

Obama’s “Socialism” Seems to be Working Out Pretty Well for Capitalists

Dow Jones industrial average: 15,105.12 That’s what the Dow closed at today. Oh, that’s a new record, by the way.  You know what “setting a record” means, right?  As in the Dow Jones industrial average has never been over 15,000 before. Just for a quick reference, March 9, 2009 the Dow hit its lowest point […]
