    So you are against people advocating for their product or political position in public?

    The internet is probably the strongest media source available today so why shouldn't people use it to push their beliefs?

    Do you get upset when Pepsi says it's better than Coke?

    Does that make you punch a hole in the wall?

    lol

    Many of these "Corporate Subsidies" are actually "money not siezed" by Government.

    That is not a proper definition for such. Government does not "own" what it has not "taken," until after it has "taken" it.

    That said, GIVING money back to coroporate entities is a huge problem. But, we shall continue with such a sham, because, many of those corporations, in turn, put money directly into the accounts of Politicians, in a "protection racket...."
    Thanks from vikingbeast

    So, you're for or against corporate welfare being the largest cost to the US Federal budget, directly and indirectly?

    Hey genius, maybe that's why later in this thread I linked to a site that tried to refute that very meme, and the dude couldn't refute it all. Take your witch hunt elsewhere.

    No, it shows partisans can't stand on their own deeds, so they have to pay liars to do their dirty work.

    Pretty true. These wingers who say it doesn't exist also probably believe in the Tooth Fairy also. Thanks for a measured, realistic response.

    The political party's love to hire inmates out of the half way houses and conditional release programs. My retired brother who worked for a couple of oil companies gets offers all the time from them for 'outreach' work.

    Right, they never call themselves what they REALLY are, it's always "Outreach," "Opposition Research," "Voter Information," or some other such bullshit to cover what they really do. One my daughter told to get fucked was something like "Infocision."

    unless someone has newer numbers, it seems Corp Welfare is a bigger issue.

    Think by Numbers » Government Spends More on Corporate Welfare Subsidies than Social Welfare Programs

    I remember Time Magazine doing a big article on it during the 90's and even THEY admitted they get corporate welfare too. It's not like it's some big fuckin' mystery!
