Miscellaneous musings from the perspective of a lefty (both senses) atheist with a warped sense of humor.

I am a geek, but I do have some redeeming social skills. I love other people's dogs, cats, and kids. Snow sucks, but I'm willing to put up with it just to live in Madison.

The REAL Free Enterprisers

The Democrats are the only major party which really BELIEVES in the free-enterprise system. They want to use government regulations to level the playing field for businesses, leading to all-guns-blazing competition and all the concomitant benefits that arise from a vigorous open market.

The Republicans want to use government as a source of huge, cost-plus, no-bid contracts for their fat-cat friends, favor "voluntary compliance" (IE no compliance at all) with health and safety regulations, and are all too happy to have monopolies instead of competition. You think that free-traders like Milton Friedman are happy with a Republican Party dominated by neo-cons and religious wackos? Think again.
