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.

Exactly right. There has never been a truly free market going on. As with all things we work towards that. Reducing those barriers to a real free market will do more to eliminate discrimination, IMO, than trying to regulate attitudes.

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.

Thank you and thanks for the stimulus to think about that.

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.

our souls are broken in this nation

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 will have to now say I will vote for McCain if that is what it takes to keep Obama or Hillabeast out.

Amen angcat. We have approx 250 days left for everyone to sober up and follow your lead.

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.

Here's a good one from Chesterton's intellectual heir CS Lewis:

You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body

Aye. Which brings to mind how Lewis quoted St. Francis of Assisi calling his body "Brother Ass".

Cheers!

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.

Perhaps there really is no REAL Obama, he's just a vessel others have manipulated!

Six months ago, I would have believed that Obama was a creation of the Clintons--a straw candidate, if you will. There was a certain appeal in the realm of political posturing: he is the far-out, teach the world to sing, radical reformist, whereas Madam Rodham is the experienced and more centrist voice of reason.

My question now is just where did all of this Obama money come from? If it's fair to call the Ron Paul campaign out for a $500 contribution from Stormfront, I think it's more than fair to ask just how this Boy Wonder with no real resume attained his current status, i.e., the money.

In the case of such an image-oriented, platitude-based candidate, it may not be a matter of who the created Obama is but just who created him.

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.
