Laissez's Not Fair and the Market's Never Been Free...

I'm laughing at these silly Dandys and their naïve belief that we actually have a free-market, laissez-faire system of capitalism.

In a nut shell: I keep hearing more and more whining about Obama and liberals and socialism. But the people complaining don't know what socialism is. We don't have anything near socialism. They seem to think that ANY government intervention in the economy equals socialism. What they fail to realize is that our government has ALWAYS intervened in the economy, and to the benefit of the RICH. We've never had a "free market" economy.

In other words, it's just more complaining by the privileged that they're losing their privileges. Since regular (read: "not filthy rich") people have pipe dreams about also being rich SOMEDAY, they go along with it.
