Brawl erupts at Food Stamp office. “A dispute over a spot in line at a food stamp office downstate escalated into a full-fledged brawl.” To paraphrase the late Rodney Dangerfield, “I went to a fight and a food stamp line broke out.” [Video at the link.]

How would you know since you never had a job? Define employment, Define Corporate Greed. You can’t because that little piece of brain you have can not hold more than two thoughts, The first one being you want to marry Ron Paul and be his babies momma, the other one is corporate greed, like an old 386 computer your hard drive is full, no more room for anything remotely close to common sense….Please feel free to consume feces and expire quietly in the corner.

Corporate Greed already stole our property 50 years ago when they debased the currency. They control all the gold and silver, they just hand out the scraps to keep the brainwashed masses preoccupied.

They debased the currency so there would be enough of it to give to you. Your greed keeps them in business.

And no they don’t own all the gold and silver. I have quite a lot of it myself. It is what helps protect my assets from looters like you.

If they never debased the currency in the first place then everyone would have a job and there would be no “looters”. Debasing the currency gave the perfect excuse that inflation made keeping jobs in this country too expensive which gave Corporate Greed reason to exploit cheap overseas labor.

A lot of us do have jobs. We have them so that we can pay our way as well as yours. They debased the currency so you wouldn’t have to have a job. They exist, largely in part, to facilitate your greed.

Besides you analysis fails in that employment shot up dramatically in the decades after the creation of the Fed. People lived longer, there were more of them after the baby boom and the sexual revolution saw to it that a lot of females that would otherwise would have staid home were in the workplace. Of course it is almost required that two people from a single household work. One to pay their way and one to pay yours.

Ever since the Industrial Revolution has Corporate Greed strived to one day eliminate the need for human labor so they can keep all the profits for themselves.

It would not be possible in a free market for them to keep these profits. Competition would force an ever better product for less money. But we don’t have a free market. We have one that exists to cater to John’s greed.

Impossible, there is no way that they can automate all labor in the plant. Machine maintenance, electricians, hydraulic mechanics, HVAC mechanics, etc. will always be needed, the only jobs they would be able to eliminate are the only jobs you are qualified for, UNSKILLED LABOR!!

That is why I specified in a “free market”. You see without the central authority picking the winners and losers and regulating the competition of business there could be no such conspiracy. Upstarts would force better attention to the consumers and better stewardship of resources. If you can’t pay your fair share at least you could pay attention.

Of course they couldn’t. That would make them an easy target for destruction by bold new competition.

But if you honestly believe that then mark this moment down. (In fact I think I’ll copy and paste it and save it in a google drive file) because as of it you can never say you support Ron Paul again. Not if that is truly your belief. Because it is the exact opposite of everything his economic philosophy is based on.

In the current state of the economy, not even going to a completely free market will stop Corporate Greed from monopolizing the market. They have already got too strong of a foothold on the market to allow for new businesses to come in.

Only if we disband all current corporate structures and start from scratch can we even hope to establish a free market.

Much the opposite. This “strong hold” has been afforded by a corporatist system that has long been established to serve you. Remove the shackles and see how long the bloated ogre could survive against new hungry businesses just waiting to give the consumer what they want.

“Only if we disband all current corporate structures and start from scratch can we even hope to establish a free market.”

If you disband the current corporate structure there will be mass starvation within two weeks . You’d be stealing the property and potential income of all the people invested in these companies (and not having a job you might not be aware but a lot of people have planned for these things called “retirement” by being invested in these corporations). Production and pricing would collapse. And you would need a central economic authority every bit as powerful as the one wielded by the Nazi’s.

His attitude is just like these two European morons, live off other peoples money cause he is too stupid, and lazy to be gainfully employed, why I bet when someone mentions job he wets himself and runs like Jesse Owens to hide in mommy’s basement where he can talk to his inflatable Ron Paul Doll and tell the doll how mean people are and complain about the rich guys not sharing their goodies with him.
