Why should the government interfere with the

FREE ENTERPRISE SYSTEM,

the motto of the rich and their corporations,

the Republican’s

RIGHT to TAKE, MAKE, and EXTORT

the markets,

for as much money and profit as they can,

LEGALLY and ILLEGALLY GAIN,

at the expense of everyone else.

Why would anyone not prefer the notion of

laissez faire capitalism,

the law of supply, demand, and prices

to take precedent?

Surely you jest!

Gas suppliers from top to bottom are profiteering from colder than normal weather. People will burn the same amount of heating fuel regardless of what it costs, as the alternative would be to freeze.

The talk of investigating price gouging has stopped. As soon as the government mentioned it, the gas companies showed up with a bunch of cash to stop it.

Hopefully people that can switch over to another form of heat, will do so. Get a wood stove or a pellet stove that is approved by your insurance company so you don't get charged double for insurance. Put the squeeze on the gas industry for a change. Won't be long and people will be priced out of home heating fuel.

People have to guess,

the rich, republicans, democrats, and their corporations,

- they don’t want their scheming and thieving to be so obviously noticeable, AND

- don’t like to play in the dirt and grovel with working people in full view.

Ever wonder why they named that Famous Show

“REPUBLICAN’S-in-da- MOONLIGHT !

kinda like the popular expose:

"LIAR'S, CHEETER'S & SCHEMER'S-IN-DA-MOONLIGHT"

WHERE ARE

ALL the REPUBLICAN CHEERLEADERS ?

- when a fellow businessman,

- when a buddy corporation, or

- rich fraternal republican or democrat

- gains control of the supply,

- makes loads of money controlling prices, and

- then pocket the money to their off-shore accounts.

YOU’LL SEE THESE CHANGES ALRIGHT

- but not as the RICH, and THEIR CORPORATIONS see them,

(aka tax breaks, reductions, etc.)

- but YOU WILL SEE THEM

- as tax increases, once the rich and their corporations pocket the money, and leave the rest of us to make-up for their tax payment SHORTFALLS!

Where are

all the

“FREE-ENTERPRISE” hawkers, when they’re needed to cheer-on the “one-for-the-few, and all-for-one”

business takes all,

money-grubbing,

greed mentality?

Why aren't they here praising the way the “SYSTEM” works . ..

“Once the rich, their corporations, and their political system get’s their hand’s on

- writing the law,

- passing the law, and

- tax-abetments,

- tax avoidance, and of course,

- over 2,800 changes to the tax law EVERY YEAR.

How many of these so-called IRS tax-law-code changes AFFECT WAGE-EARNING CITIZENS ?

You’ll never see these CHANGES because of reduced tax liability and payments…

Shclort,

You’re talking like a wage-earner here/there below.

Keep up your whining, and

- you’ll find yourself cut out of a job,

- cut off from any thought of a retirement, let alone a pension,

- cut off from ever seeing the inside of a doctor’s office or

-cut off from ever seeing the inside of a hospital,

- cut off - let alone - receive any healthcare, and maybe - - --

- you’ll get to honor the

- “FREE-ENTERPRISE” SYSTEM, with the

- work ‘til you drop and die, republican, mantra, moto, dough-dough, do-do, (dodo!).

Yeahup!

Keep up the good fight Schlort,

you’ll soon join the ranks of those dam.n liberals yet....

before you croak!

Well Whizzywhig...give it a break, always only bigoted blah, blah, blah from you...everyone is entitled to an opinion, and you just rip them apart with your own. And then you post again, and again, and again, and again, and again...get a life, and find something else to do like stalking, or maybe sticking pins in voodoo dolls

Whizzy's also wrong the majority of time too.

Somethings never change. His rants rarely if ever have anything to do with the story or article he is commenting under as well.

As to the free market, I'm fine with supply and demand. Sure the price of propane went up, not surprised. What people don't like is people taking advantage as in $200 delivery fees. Charging $5 per gallon more than the actual price/gallon because you can and people have no where else to go.

Whiz fails to realize that conservatives aren't against all regulation, just excessive regulation. There is a difference he's just too dull to understand it.

As for the changes being passed on as tax increases, the only tax increases I see are a direct result of Odumbocare and the progressive's belief in a utopia where nobody is responsible for themselves.

Face it Whiz, very few conservative principles increase taxes. All progressive principles do necessitate an increase in taxes, the distribution of earned wealth to unearned wealth.

Whizzies whole rant to shlort is also a complete farce.

Let's see who's responsible for some of the things you talk to shlort about.

Out of a job - yes the job market stinks. Direct result of progressive policies including but not limited to Obamacare, the number one job killing bill of all time.

No retirement - Mr. Obama now calling for limiting 401K amounts. He isn't a conservative last I checked.

Doctor's office and Hospital- This ones obvious - Obamacare is the single most harmful law the health care industry has ever had to face.

If you believe that any of this falls under the guise of free enterprise you are sadly mistaken. What you see is government intrusion into the free enterprise system and the two can not coexist.

Yes, the liberal mantra, not working is a good thing. Not paying for yourself is a good thing. How about we all follow that plan Whiz, where's the money going to come from?

As for the rest of all the giggles, entertaining, but of meager thought or intellect, devoid of and by way of not providing proofs…

It is not worth the time and effort to comment on all the wrong headed thinking, rant(ing).

All conservatives, populate their principles with abhorrence for anything related to increases in taxes, the distribution of immorally procured wealth to people will never have the ability to accumulate any semblance of wealth, which are principally derived by the rich, and their corporations from the result of excessive, immoral intervention in the democratic process to increase their holdings, wealth, from off-shore tax evasion and other intervention mechanisms.

As originally envisioned, president Obama’s health care reform was a mere 2,700 pages that dealt with the ability to buy insurance not tied to the workplace, not insuring people with pre-existing conditions, single payer, and healthcare portability.

With bohner’s and republican insistence, lobbying the insurance industry boosted to over 34,000 pages, the ACA, affordable healthcare act, that ultimately replaced president Obama’s 2,700 page healthcare reform by more than 31,000 pages of complex jargon to insure the insurance industry maintains its profitability, as intoned by Nancy Peolosi.

WRONG: Doctor's office and Hospital- This ones obvious - Obamacare is the single most harmful law the health care industry has ever had to face.

The affordable health care act, ACA was a total fabrication by republicans, the insuring companies, to insure that those businesses have an ample stream of cash. You must remember the terrible ruckus republicans raised over the single payer concept!

WRONG: "No retirement - Mr. Obama now calling for limiting 401K amounts. He isn't a conservative last I checked."

ANSWER: 401k plans were invented, concocted by republicans for rich CEO’s of Eastman Kodak and Xerox, which wanted a tax shelter for profit-sharing bonuses for their CEO’s, executives and managers.

As originally contrived, the plan was only available to the rich republican CEO’s and executives. Overwhelming studies and research indicate that 401k “retirement plans” do not allow the majority of people enough money to retire or live. The exception, the rich who drop copious amounts and manage their plans aggressively take home surprisingly huge returns.

Here is the corrected version in answer to voochies pure flight of fancy ,

but because, as originally posted, bears substance because it’s history, verifiable, quantifiable, and has been observed.

YES, that‘s what I said: “Out of a job - yes the job market stinks”

REASON JOB MARKET STINKS = the rich, ruepublicans their businesses and their corporations outsourced jobs to workers willing to accept less of everything, wages, healthcare, workplace safety, working hours, working conditions, no benefits, long hours, and hardly enough to pay expenses, let alone save for retirement or education of children.

I like the no proof part at the end Whiz, something your rarely if ever provide claiming dominion and superiority over the feeble people.

Yep corporations outsourced jobs because American's of all income classes demanded cheaper goods. Those with 401Ks demanded profitablity and increased gains in their retirement. You argue out of both sides of your mouth and look a fool for doing so whiz.

401K plans probably won't supply all the retirement funds depending on the life style you want to live. That is also a good reason why the wise have other investments in retirement other than a 401K. Saving for retirement is a sacrifice. You sacrifice some material goods now for a comfortable life later. Not my fault if you didn't do that earlier in life.

Let's see the proof that the ACA was a fabrication of the republicans and insurance companies.

Yes, Obama wanted pre-existing conditions, single payer, and health care portability. It was his plan and he still wants single payer. Why in this world would insurance companies fight to cover pre-existing conditions when they've spent their whole existence refusing them coverage because it cost them a fortune? This flies in the face of your corporate greed argument there whiz.

Yes, there was an uprising over single payer, because it doesn't work. Never has, anywhere! It breaks a country financially and limits access of the people to health care every where it's been tried.

All wealth whiz is not gained immorally. Some folks actually work hard to attain it but you wouldn't understand that would you. You don't have what they have and you want it so you have the right to take it under the guise of morality. It's a hypocritical arguement you make whiz.
