  •  When I explain to my wingnut relatives (4+ / 0-)

    - or to folks who are genuinely receptive - why I'm so jaded about the financial/freemartket system, I put it (simplistically) thus:

    Big Money runs the world. Been that way since the Medicis....

    To the wingnuts in particular who love to babble Faux squawking points about deregulation, I ask, you do love and even bet on your college and NFL football games, right...?.....

    Well, how safe would your bet be if the games were played with little to no rules, let alone referees to enforce them. Level playing field, anyone?

    Although not really breaking through their thick little skulls, it usually deflates and deescalates the argument, which is about the best I can get for now....

    Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it. -- Mark Twain
