The Deep State asserts itself more. The CIA wants Assange. Washington at large wants Assange. The Imperial City doesn’t want any more secrets getting out. It’s a grudge match now.
NAFTA probably deserves to die outright. It is a crony arrangement and is a great example of how what is often called “free trade” is actually managed trade. Managed for vested interests that is.
Murray Rothbard opposed NAFTA and showed that what the Orwellians were calling a “free trade” agreement was in reality a means to cartelize and increase government control over the economy.
Heck, even we, rabid pro-marketeers, classical liberal libertarians that we are at ACC live in a county that went for Clinton. And though we live in the real world, where there are Waffle Houses, and people hunt, we live right on the edge of where America goes from reasonably normal to the North East.
This is an excellent article on most points. We disagree that area determines the news bias however. The media are overwelmingly “corporate-Left.”
There are people who believe that the 2008 Crash, a crash that affected many profoundly, was created by the market mechanism. Greed run wild etc etc. And while greed did indeed run wild during the housing boom it was facilitated by a key piece of central planning, a mechanism that Marx himself favored, central banks.
The Fed and its brethren kept interest rates too low for too long and as such created malinvestment on a massive scale which eventually toppled on itself.
Ms. Waters is a crony capitalist to the max who recently said that Putin had invaded Korea (she meant Crimea – but in this video one can see she’s not really sure about where either one is, or perhaps WHAT either one is). She is far from the type of person the Democrats should be celebrating. But if the Democrats want to keep on losing – go right ahead.
That’s right. Let’s hope Trump is hopelessly entangled in the same crony morass that you find yourself in. Yes, let’s hope that any bit of change and challenge to the establishment is wiped clean from the Trump White House. That would be just great for America.
Now let’s go drop some bombs! Eh Mr. McCain?
One of the reasons many people supported Trump and opposed Hillary Clinton was because she in many ways was of the “Bush club.” A Democrat sure, but a neocon internationally and definitely a part of the establishment.
Increasingly it seems Trump is cozying up to the establishment. Perhaps this is the trade for the reduction in Russia heat.
The last thing this country needs however is a bunch of Bushites given new life.
