Because rightwingers are too stupid to figure out that if you allow companies to outsource most of their wagebill to the taxpayer then you are getting cheaper goods DESPITE the goods having a lower sticker-price. You're just paying the difference via a rather inefficient middle-man called the government.

Us stupid right wingers didn't ask Jonathan Gruber to draft an unsustainable health care bill. Nor did we ask the Federal government to raise food stamp access to multiple times above the poverty level. Maybe you're trolling but I think you meant "getting more expensive goods DESPITE the goods having a lower sticker price. You could possibly be right if there wasn't a deficit.

I agree with you. Capitalism is constantly recycling. But even if the government functioned under the profit motive and distributed it's profits to it's shareholders (the taxpayers) we'ed be in a way better situation. Canada is almost working under this concept. They plan to distribute the surplus to the middle and lower class.

You do understand the difference between a subsidy and a credit right? The fossil fuel industry is not receiving $40 dollars of every paycheck from the government. They are not having to pay part of the money they earned to the government because of credits that offset the cost of oil exploratory drilling. On the other hand, Fisker, which went bankrupt, received millions in Federal and State low interest loans. This money was never paid back and the taxpayers are on the hook.

The poor pay a larger percentage of their income to fuel costs. Fracking lowers the cost of fuel. Therefore, I am for fracking because I am not in favor if a caste system. Environmentalists sounds like French pre-revolutionary land owners. They hate when the poor sully their lands with hunting for food.

No, I'm pretty sure I knew what I was talking about.

No one denies climate change, not even the deniers. The climate has been changing since the Earth was formed. Bill Nye is fighting a straw man. What the deniers dispute is humans having a majoritive effect on climate change. The science on that is not settled, especially when new papers are being published trying to explain a hiatus in the warming trend and the significance of the oceans in the atmospheric temperature. If the science on that was settled there would be no use for continued research.

What all this has shown me is how a lot of the major video game site journalists despise their audience. Just like the XBox One launch and backlash and the Mass Effect backlash the gaming press have never been on our side. Tht's what is truly sad about Gamergate.
