1. Profit trumps the public good in this country.

I would say it always has, but I don't think that's true. It certainly has been the case for most of my lifetime.

It's the reason why we can't seem to stop killing people in faraway lands. The MIC needs to be fed, and us god damned peaceniks want to make it harder for the CEO's of General Dynamics and Raytheon and Rockwell and the rest to take home millions and millions of our tax dollars.

And they just can't have that, now can they?

I find it astounding that so many people in this country defend the private health insurance industry, as if they are just big, cuddly bunnies and friends of the average Joe, instead of the parasites on the working class that they are.
