Free Fair Trade?

My economic knowledge is about on par with a high school freshman but my freshman tea party congressman just sent me an e-mail that blew my mind. It's filled with the usual GOP nonsense and also divulged a revolutionary economic breakthrough called Free Fair Trade. I'm at least aware of the Free and Fair platforms and their respective political leanings but this new tea party concoction is better than cold fusion in a jar. It goes as follows:

Ronald Reagan's Letter of Support to PATCO

Below is the letter of support of the nation's air traffic controllers that candidate Ronald Reagan wrote to the Professional Air Traffic Controller's Organization in his run for the Presidency in 1980. History shows:

...that the incoming Presidency knew from the Jimmy Carter Presidency that there were labor issues with PATCO who represented all of the nation's air traffic controllers...

CBO: Obama understates deficits by $2.3 trillion

Yikes, we are in bigger trouble than anyone thought.

cost of war to US tax and rate payers, billion$$$ benefit private companies jumping into the "business" of war.

Halliburton is only one of hundreds of companies, big and small, investing and converting their products and services to warfare products, production, and services.

Dear Mr. Disney,

Dear Mr. W.E. Disney,

Here is my report on the present state of The Art of Walt Disney:

The line has to be drawn somewhere or Disney will become just another casino. The new Ice Show costumes are a textilic nightmare. Alice in Wonderland was remade creepy and ugly. Impolite f@rt jokes are woven into every script.

A new Handle

I like Thom's suggesting that perhaps the most appropriate name for the current rash of Rebuplican conservatives and Tea Partiers is that they are a cult. Their ideology overrides any form of logic, fact, historical precidents, Biblical interpretations and humanitarism. They are lemmings following an assortment of pied pipers heading for that cliff or willing to take their own life if these pipers tell them.

Japan crisis

We're questioning the radiation fall-out reaching the states! How quickly we forget the Ballon-bombs that were sent over in WWII. The balloons were released from Japan, and one actually DID kill people in Oregon.

Thom, I know you're a pet lover, Do you know if there are any orginizations fund raising to save pets that survived the disaster? Thanks

When people talk of Nuclear Energy plants they seem to overlook the waste these plants produce. Our planet is being saturated with toxins- does that matter or are we just using a fix for today and to hell with tomorrow. I look at the birds singing and feel sad nowadys for I fear we are losing them and everything else that makes this planet beautiful. Nuclear only produces 20% of our electric. I say ration energy- so much per person and do away with these destructive monstrousities.

War With Libya

Marching off to one more war we are going.

To keep the money to the military flowing.

Rebuild Our Country first, not later.

Let our allies topple Libya's dictator.

Our Country is rotting at the core.

We should care about that a whole lot more.

Working People's Taxes going up= Wage increase?

I'm reading Rebooting the American for the 12th time. Thom chronicles that when taxes go up for working class folks, wages also increase over time. Can somebody please explain why that is? Thank you!

No one is talking about the radiation that is going onto the Ocean.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
