"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
Over the weekend I watched book TV, and listened to HOO Joon Cheng, talk about his book "23 Things they don't tell you about capitalism." Everyone should read this book because I thought I knew but didn't really know that there is no scientific way to determine a free market.
Why in this country of "laws", is their a tiered justice system? Why are the rich and politically powerful above the law? Are the international courts so weak that they don't what to offend the U.S.

A lot of Americans see Canada as a liberal bastion to the north. An example of a compassionate sensible country that cares about it's citizens first.

A couple of people have asked for help in finding an essay from 1976 that Thom mentioned several days ago. Thanks to Bruce Bartlett it's on Internet. Here is the URL:
this November WE THE PEOPLE shall NOT re elect anyone ANYONE that is currently holding an office in Congress or the Senate
Thom had mentioned a letter a Republican strategest had written I think in the 70's. It stated that the Repubs, should spend like drunk sailors (my words) during their reign and then attack Dems on the debt and spending when they were out of power. It is still obviously being followed! I am sorry I don't have more info, I just can't remember if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
