    Rall has never been tightly wrapped, but I think he’s now officially gone completely off the rails.

    @TJDestry

    Thank you for making my point for me. In our society, it’s socially and politically unacceptable to openly admit that you dislike capitalism. Try it sometime if you don’t believe me – at work, with friends, on the bus, anywhere, anytime.

    That’s what communists said about communism in the 1920s – that communism was there to stay, and that capitalism was doomed. Even many capitalists feared that capitalism was finished. I don’t know what’s going to happen next, but I do know that it’s foolish to make sweeping predictions like that. Also, the internal contradictions within capitalism – the need for continuous expansion coupled with a consumer-based economy and the tendency of capital to aggregate in fewer hands – makes it difficult to see how capitalism can last. Nothing can expand forever in a world of limited resources. And if the rich get richer forever, eventually the poor and middle class can’t buy goods.

    Oh no. I’ve re-tweeted some of the things Pope Francis has said. Does this put me on a no-fly list?

    You have the intellectual limits to only dip your toe in the water, yet you complain how deep the ocean.

    Why don’t you tell us how you really feel?

    But Ted it is not unacceptable to admit you dislike capitalism. The mainstream media does it constantly and is official policy of one of the two major political parasites, er, parties.

    Hey Ted, do you draw cartoons for free? For the good of man?
    OR do you make a good living from it and live a comfortable life?

    Nope. You’re not getting any deeper than a toenail dipped in the water.

    Smart enough to not debate someone who cannot articulate the viewpoint of the opposition.

    the left and the right, PURPOSELY blur the differences between Industrial Capitalism and free enterprise, and they fall hard for it. (as it ‘fits’ their royal ideas of "Big is BAAAAAAAAAAD/small is beautiful’) limits placed on their small minds…

    It isn’t Obama’s fault today. The $7.7 trillion was already given to the FedBanks who are still sitting on them claiming things must improve first before they will help new start up businesses. Blame the Federal Banks. However you can blame the Congress and the president for not making them act.
