Deregulation is Socialization of Businesses overhead Expenses

Come on folks!

This is an easy one, don't let 'em get away with it,....why were the regulations enacted in the first place if it wasn't to protect the public.

Businesses are not philanthropic entities, they are not going to act as pass through entities for the surplus profit created by deregulation

Wall Street launches attack on Pension Funds of Struggling State's Employees

Assisted by Republican Governors teachers, fire fighters, revenue workers, natural resource staff, etc. ALL of them are finding that if their own governors don't "borrow" (steal) from their pension fund to save their state's budget, that Wall Street is plying the money free with campaign donations to local Republicans.

Teachers and their pensions

Don't Fall for It: Deregulation means Wealth Concentration

Cap N Trade feeds Wall Street, a Carbon Tax would raise over $210 billion in the first year alone

Cap N Trade feeds Wall Street, a Carbon Tax would raise over $210 billion in the first year alone and this money could be used to fund social programs.

The Florida Governor's Supercut

Tallahassee, Florida Florida's new Governor Rick Scott has added Education to the list of things which should become even worse in Florida. The 3.3 billion dollar slash in funds was called "draconian," for want of a professionally acceptable nastier word, by Dade and Broward County School Board Officials, who say the result will lay-off thousands of teachers. The Schoolboard appears as though they will not be taking this laying down.

SOUND BITE WARS!!! Add ammo to wage and win wars when issues are addressed with Sound Bites

The progressive's arsenal needs a whole lot more ammo to be able to stand toe-to-toe, fight fire with fire, and battle effectively against the massive sound bite machine of the right. SO, we warriors with words must begin creating and stockpiling the most useful, powerful, and effective sound bites we can think of, and then use them to support progressive viewpoints. Here are my humble offerings to get this thread started! PLEASE add to this thread. Thom, consider making this one of your weekly contests!

The Founding Fathers Rejected Adam Smith's Laissez-faire

The founding fathers never accepted the theories of Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations (which was first published in England in 1776, after the Declaration of Independence). In fact, they rejected it. Instead, they followed the theories embodied in Alexander Hamilton's Report on Manufactures,which called for tariff's, prevention of monopolies, subsidy of important industries, among other federal regulation of commerce.
