    I'd hate to defend Hillary, being the lowlife, thieving, piece of crap she is.... but I'll play for a bit.

    By and large, she was speaking of the corporations and the ultra rich in those quotes, but we hear something like that and go off defending this illusion of a free market that we have been given to believe..... We don't have a free market, we don't have capitalism, we have corporatism..... the corporations and the government intertwined and busy stealing from every one of us. Yet when someone speaks out, they're labled a communist, the fear factor kicks in, and they're attacked as threatening our way of life.

    What way of life would we defend? The one where the corporations, with the help of the government, are robbing us blind with one hand and killing us with the other. And they have the american populace so bullshitted as to defend them. It's crazy.

    I'll stipulate that the quotes are exact and taken out of context, thereby making her seem worse than it is. However, I'll also say that listening to her ranting speeches does not give me any reason to think she didn't mean every word. It is a hell of a lot easier to defend corporations against accusations of greed than it is to defend her in any way. I can't see any redeeming social value to her in the Oval Office.

    She hasone thread running through all this : you give up something forwhat "I" consider a common good...( and if you you don't we'll take it)...
    She still scares me worse than amah-dinnerjacket in aye-ran.

    Remember that the "Income Tax" was originally for just the top 1% of the nations income earners.
    Once they start down this road, we are toast.
    The problem is that the government has expanded to the point where it is everywhere. We were supposed to have a limited government.
    There was a reason that the framers designed the funding as they did, it
    allowed for sufficient funds and freedom for individuals.
    Every law and regulation is an arrow in the back of Liberty.
    Rant off, go to work. Tax day is comming.

    I can agree to all the above (except defending corporate greed).

    We are so far from where we are supposed to be, I don't see how we'll ever get back.
