    Well that's not enough. Of course it's done in secret. But legislators, if they'd get off there asses and go to the basement, they might find things they don't like, as Elizabeth Warren has. Though it's (apparently intentionally) no easy task.

    Got a broad enough brush in your hand Jack. How utterly arrogant and condescending of you. That post is worth one S&H green stamp.

    The arrangements are no more onerous than the modern norm, and are much more generous than in the past, when there was no access at all.

    Opposition to free trade is knownothingism. It merits every ounce of arrogance and condescension I can muster. If I could get more I would bring that too.

    Boxing up the Church's that oppose this along with the many environmental advocacy groups, the labor unions and the majority of the Democratic Party as ignorant and know nothings is more of an indication that you are the one short on knowledge, but more importantly, a worthless debtor and complete waste of time. As far as I'm concerned, there's no value whatsoever to such an arrogant assertion. And supporting something so feverishly that you don't know dick about, is beyond all reason.

    You are correct that ignorance is increasingly widespread. As an educated man, it is my duty to oppose that.

    For the majority who are against, It's never too late to act.
