I saw this picture from a country to remain un-named. I have asked for a copy of this picture several times and they will not give it to me. They are hoping I forget about the picture. In the picture there is a picture of a high rise apartment building with a smoke stack that is probably about 100 feet from the building and about 5 floors short of the height of the building. This smoke stack is in a residential area extremely close to the building and shorter than the building too. But this is located in an country where the people can not say anything about it and certainly can not regulate their own residential area, at the very least. The people do say over and over that they can not even breath in the area. They say that visiting the United States of America probably extends their life by 10 years. Most of the area is made of either brick or pavement, so on the days that smoke stack is not being used. All the area retains the dust and soot from the stack and the people never get a break from the exposure of the toxic pollution. De-regulation is a very bad idea unless you want to live an area like this.

This country, where this pictures originates from, has already de-regulated freedom of speech unless of course it is money; then a person can talk as long as they want.

The Billionaire Hypocrisy of Helping the Poor

There's one thing that both progressives and conservatives can agree on, and they can quote both FDR and Ronald Reagan on it.

And that is that, "The best welfare program is a job."

FDR extended the idea to say that when there are no jobs, the government should act as an employer of last resort.
