Yeah the thing about (the modern American) ardent libertarian is that they are usually utterly, 180 degrees wrong. It's sort of like teaching Ayn Rand in a undergrad philosophy class on ethics or even metaphysics - it has no place to be taken seriously

Those in power... you mean the people when their representation still had a modicum of integrity?

Honestly - one non-sequitur leap to another - what is it that you are saying?

I have first hand experience with it - and it's clear, as the message came from the top to drive down wages... look for foreign workers. Laws be dammed, particularly in right to work states. It's a sad but real truth to this situation of immigration. Is it everywhere - of course not - but I'd wager mostly everywhere.

Evermore, even our education system in the USA is now a "big" business, just like healthcare - this is despicable. Its a disgrace. It's been going on for decades, albeit at a somewhat chelonian pace; and now it's accelerating. Keep on voting GOP and corporate clown Dems... and this result will continue. Young people- you must get and vote - save your generation. Mine is lost to the oligarchs.

Put your best foot forward. Or just call in and say you're sick.
