I'm not changing the subject. I'm just pointing out that you are making yourself look foolish by making grand assumptions about me based on woefully incomplete information.
You haven't done anything on this thread except (a) refuse to back up your bare assertions, (b) change the subject to your comment history when cornered, and (c) repeat the same bare assertions without backup.
Perhaps you should try to google "distinction without a difference".
Exactly what I have been saying about Washington and Wall St. Why you insist on singling out the insurance industry and claim they are distinct from Washington is a puzzle.
I'm challenging you to think before you speak. You insist on acting otherwise.
You're doing nothing of the sort. You're expecting me to blindly agree with you instead of thinking or requiring any proof, a typical statist attitude.
I'm not stalling anything. You are really good at pulling shit out of thin air and getting yourself whipped up into a frenzy over it though.
And the first cuss word comes from you! Who's in the frenzy here?
My argument is that differentiating Wall St and Washington is a distinction without a difference. Go back to your history. Look up Mayflower Compact. The indentured servants signed up for a Virginia destination, and threatened to free themselves when they were landed in Massachusetts instead. The Mayflower Compact was the fat cats' response to make sure there was some form of government at all times so they could maintain a facade of legality to keep the servants indentured even though the fat cats had broken their side of the contract.
George Washington and friends bought 200,000 acres in the Ohio Valley, a questionable deal with unsettled colony borders and agreements with the Indians, and then used their votes in the Virginia Legislature to give their deal some also questionable legal cover.
Later, as President and commander-in-chief, he led the army which put down the Whhiskey Rebellion of small farmers who couldn't manage to pay the whiskey tax. Was it a coincidence that Washington was a successful large scale whiskey farmer?
The revolution itself was co-opted by the merchants, sheriffs, judges, and other entrenched interests.
Not a single insurance company in the lot, not even John Hancock yet, but plenty of crony corruption. This corruption has been going on since the beginning of time. Your focus on the insurance companies in 2010, and your insistence that government is pure and should crack down on the insurance companies, is laughable.
