Ok,I see your point.So my question becomes:Was or was not this country operating under the rules of free market capitalism back in say,1930,when there were all sorts of barriers,both from unions and businesses,that excluded blacks from certain types of jobs?
I would say,”no”,under the defintion you give.
When you used the word 'mindless' in describing what I have called 'arbitrary discrimination' (and appropriately so) it made me think about motivation. Most businessmen are motivated by production, profits and quality service. The businessman who is mindful of that will discriminate in hiring on substantive issues like education, experience and talent. The businessman who allows personal prejudices to affect his decisions will not be competitive. Thus racism, sexism and the like become self-limiting practices.
That kind of philosophy is progressive in practice not in name unlike the regressiveness of Progessive (communist) philosophy which promotes reverse racism as a remedy.
Well stated and I concur wholeheartedly.
Freedom works, government doesn't.
I agree. I have my disagreements with McCain as I do with Bush, but compared to the democrat alternative they are great choices.
She & her hubby go to a crazy church. My soul is just fine & I will thank the Obama's & their crazy cult church to at the very least leave my soul ALONE. Is nothing sacred to these people? I don't like them & I don't like that church of theirs & I am really starting to actually hate that Oprah. Even if she doesn't mean my soul the way I am taking it , she can just stfu IMHO. Already I don't like this big mouth & I really don't see her as a First Lady.
I don’t know where to start. People cynical because ‘government’ forgot them? Huh? Our souls need fixed? Really? Wow, I’ve been walking around all this time, not even knowing. How, oh how, will Obama fix my soul? Is he Oprah-fying himself, with his fixing our souls and fainting audiences? Pronounced ‘brilliant’ by Oprah? Well! - that settles it. Yikes. I thought presidents ran our country, I didn’t realize they were supposed to save us from ourselves, save our souls, and be our nannies.
I’m a soulllll man... ~8^O
Amen angcat. We have approx 250 days left for everyone to sober up and follow your lead.
Pandy! Sounds like you are not a happy camper. (Me, neither.) :-)
I change my mind everyday.
I will vote, I will not vote. I will have a final decision in November.
It’s going to be a longggggggggggg summer!
No I sure am not a happy camper. This woman goes too far. Perhaps she will open her big mouth some more & make Hillary look even better. I truly can not think of Obama & Momma Obama in the White House. She also has a mean & angry look to her too.
You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body
Mebbe your soul be broken, Michelle, but not mine.
I have NO doubt of that if you’re frequenting a “church” with a hate-filled “minister” that promotes the beliefs of Nation of Islam’s Calypso Louie Farrakhan, Michelle!
But you speak for yourself, NOT Americans!
Exactly so, I don’t even use the word abortion anymore. I use infanticide.
Yep. He certainly didn’t get there on his own or just by being endorsed by the Kennedy family. Valid questions and interesting info, imo.
I firmly believe he’s going to be the dem nom and win. Anyone who opposes him will be called racist or some other nasty name regardless of his lack of experience and solutions to the problems. He’s a leftist socialist/marxist, more extreme than hillary if possible, and the masses are too stupid to understand what our country will become under him, far worse than what we’ve ever seen to this point. And we’re screwed, imo.
Can’t wait to find out who funded his candidacy and urged it along.
