I am way past "college professors" being important.  Indeed, I am way past "Athletic Directors" being important.

Governor Lamar Alexander, is he one of the good ones, claims he has a "vision for 100 new Nuclear Plants n the next x years.  Great.  How's that Nuclear Plant Defense project coming along?  You know, the one that will prevent airplanes from flying into our Nuclear Plants?  Oh, yea, Trillions on two "fake patriotic wars".  Well, they served their purpose:  Keep that cash gusher flowing to Halliburton/Blackwaer/Xe.  (I wonder what they will call themselves next time.  I hear they have lovely offices in God Damned Dubai)

Nuclear Plant Security? Not so good, huh.  I'm thinking that it is not the tethers of Democracy that are holding project back.  That's just what we need, a "privatized" Nuclear Industry.  How close do you want to live to one when it is slammed with a plane full of Saudi Hijackers?  (What, No money?)  Port Security must be better?  (What, No money?)  Hell, W tried to give that to Dubai as well).  Air Terminal Security?  (What, No money?  Well, let it be said that no little old lady got past a minimum wage employee with contraband shampoo when W was "running this show)

Your good buddy Dick A. & his good bud Bill Frist had an amendment passed that said that the clothing industry could put "MADE IN AMERICA" on items pieced together by slave labor in the Marianas.  Fuck "Capitalism" and this Laissez-faire Bullshit.  THAT is "college professor" crap.

I may have mentioned, but Capitalism is a continuum, not an on/off switch.  We need the dimmer switch.  With the dimmer than, away we go, Free Enterprise.  With the on/off we re moralistically screwed.  Right now, we are in the choking hands of an Oligarchy that is hellbent on becoming a Multi-National/Government Monopoly. Doesn't sound to me like you want that.

Well, it to is NOT an on/off switch.  You need to decide what are the best stones to leap to along this dangerous maze (to Libertarianism/Equality/Free Enterprise?  You tell me - If you think Rand 'I've got more computing power and empathy in my left nut' Paul is the right direction, then you missed a class or two).  The Rethuglicans have shown time-and-time again that they do not give a rat's ass about anything but the top 2% of the Socio-Economic strata of our country.
FDR was filthy rich, but he got us through the War, and he saved this country for 40 years from a path to serfdom for the landed gentry.

FDR: We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace‹business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering.

They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money [Paul-Read Campaign Finance Reform] is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.

Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me, and I welcome their hatred.

I should like to have it said of my first Administration that in it the forces of selfishness and of lust for power met their match. I should like to have it said of my second Administration that in it these forces met their master. . ."
As I have said, it is POWER that trumps LOGIC & TRUTH.  That is a fact that no "out-of-context" Adam Smith "Free Hand" can alter.

P.S.  Let me clear that PS up:  Marginal Tax rates under Barak are almost HALF what they were under that Communist Eisenhower.
