    Was that the Little Whore House in Texas you ran, Con?

    And how exactly do you do that, do you mandate what people spend, what they eat, where they live, their individual profit demands?

    Sometimes I thought it might be but doubt that was a 200 million a year business. It was big but not that big

    Nope; by using socialism to bailout capitalism, like usual.

    So you believe destroying incentive by redistribution of wealth and control of production is the way to improve quality and generates incentive to be innovative, creative, and take risk to develop new products and services? You really don't seem to understand capitalism at all. I suggest a history course added to your economics and civics courses.

    I am not sure what you mean. I believe supply side economics should be supplying us with better governance at lower cost. We already have the infrastructure in place in our republic.

    Supply side economics has nothing to do with the governance we have, ignorance is generating that governance. Socialism isn't the answer unless you want to stifle creativity, innovation, incentive, and exceptionalism. The problem with our governance today is the 24/7 news cycle and National Enquirer mentality.

    Yes, it does. It has to do with better governance at lower cost; else, why complain about taxes. Socialism has always been the answer--the proof is that it is custom and habit to bailout Capitalism with it.

    Name one program or venture the gov't touched that resulted in lower costs? Or better governance.....WTF are you talking about? Capitalism and bailout don't belong together. If you fail, you deserve to fail, not be propped up to waste more money. Has the FED or banking sector learned from 2008? Nope, they are still operating like business as usual.

    Simply appealing to ignorance is no way to inspire any confidence in your sincerity. Did you know that corporate welfare even pays multi-million dollar bonuses?
