    Lightbulb Social Welfare vs Corporate Welfare!

    There is middle ground for compromise between social welfare and corporate welfare. I'm not going to dramatize corporate welfare like some "drama queens" on this board (PB). The problem, as most people see it in the middle, the Tea Party makes it impossible to find middle ground. Years ago, we had politicians that could sit down and act like grown men and find middle ground. Today, we have these "sissified namsy pamsy" folks who can't "see the trees for the forest!" There is a "bigger picture!"

    Corporate welfare makes social welfare look like a fucking joke, and under Obama it grew to biblical proportions.

    End welfare, establish a flat, loophole-less tax. Problem solved.

    And depending upon who you are the economic model that does a good job of explaining what we are seeing developing here in the us is corporatism. Corporatism amounts to corporations working hand in glove with a powerful central government with the aim to produce benefits for both at the expense of the rest of us.

    BTW, it isn't particularly effective to complain about a lack of cooperation while simultaneously blaming the opposition for a "lack of cooperation." Who do you think you are......obama?

    Corporatism (or corporativism) is the socio-political organization of a society by major interest groups, or corporate groups, such as agricultural, business, ethnic, labour, military, patronage, or scientific affiliations, on the basis of common interests.[1] Corporatism is theoretically based upon the interpretation of a community as an organic body.[2][3] The term corporatism is based on the Latin root word "corpus" (plural "corpora") meaning "body".[3]
    In 1881, Pope Leo XIII commissioned theologians and social thinkers to study corporatism and provide a definition for it. In 1884 in Freiburg, the commission declared that corporatism was a "system of social organization that has at its base the grouping of men according to the community of their natural interests and social functions, and as true and proper organs of the state they direct and coordinate labor and capital in matters of common interest".[4]
    Corporatism is related to the sociological concept of structural functionalism.[5] Corporate social interaction is common within kinship groups such as families, clans and ethnicities.[6] Aside from humans, certain animal species are known to exhibit strong corporate social organization, such as penguins.[7][8] Corporatist types of community and social interaction are common to many ideologies, including: absolutism, capitalism, conservatism, fascism, liberalism, progressivism, reactionism, socialism, and syndicalism.[9]
    Corporatism may also refer to economic tripartism involving negotiations between business, labour, and state interest groups to establish economic policy.[10] This is sometimes also referred to as neo-corporatism.....

    like I said, some can't "see the trees for the forest!" anyone that thinks the TP is good for this country is "a load shy!"

    Are you folks not capable of seeing the truth? Or, just so biased and racial that it is blinding. Having lived in Mississippi most of my life, it's usually the later.

    The tea party came about as a reaction to liberal democrats refusing to compromise or respect the constitutuion. Passing the Aca behind closed door, without any bipartisan support, and by using reconcilliation demonstrats a need to bust liberal democrats hard, at every chance until they begin to compromise, discuss, and meet in the middle.

    Horseshit. There is no middle ground. None whatsoever.

    That's 'cause you don't understand. You don't get it. That's the problem here.

    More bullshit partisan talking points. Got brain?

    Years ago, we had politicians that could sit down and act like grown men and find middle ground. Today, we have these "sissified namsy pamsy" folks who can't "see the trees for the forest!" There is a "bigger picture!"
    Horseshit. You're deluded. There is no "bigger picture". The picture is the same as it always was, and I for one do not appreciate (in fact I rather detest) the snake oil salesmen who are trying to sell us something different.
    Thanks from Mordent and PapaBull
