Tito The Builder

This latino gentleman made "the statement" as far as Ol' BC is concerned. He has gotten quite a bit of publicity in some circles after ripping the media over their bias towards B. Hussein Obama. Tito was on Hannity and Colmes this evening. He pointed out that the liberals want to give the poor a little handout to keep them happy and keep them voting. He then aptly pointed out that the Democrats want to keep them on the bottom of the economic ladder and give them no opportunity to move up into the class that have managed to amass a level of personal wealth.

Way to go Tito!! Preach to the latino community. They need to hear your message.

Just an observation.

And people think Oblahma has a chance ...

The media is trying hard to project that image.

I think it is because he DOES have a chance. I also have learned quite a bit about economics during my time as an instructor at the business college where I work. It is clear to me now that our economy and nation as a whole must have a measure of socialism and capitalism mixed in if it is to be viable and strong.

Cheers! Go, Obama!

Of course you'd think that, working in the hallowed halls of academia--everyone there does. They're wrong.

Capitalism works whenever it's tried. America's best decades for economics, business and manufacturing were between 1880 and 1920--the closest we ever came to a capitalist society.

Ironically, it was the socialists in academia at that time that sowed the seeds of the destruction of liberty in America.

:) You overlook the fact that without socialistic ideas there would be very little infrastructure. Government's role would be little more than that of a law enforcing body. The private sector is a poor choice for providing and maintaining infrastructure. Thus, a certain measure of socialism is necessary. I am not talking about the people or government owning everything. I am simply talking about a fair and governed redistribution of wealth in the form of roads, health care, emergency services, mail services, transportation, unemployment services, just to name a few.

And I find it especially odd that "the hallowed halls of academia" are met with such resistance by conservatives. Do they not go to school? Also, aren't the universities of our time noted for their knowledge? Is it then knowledge you rail against? If so, I can only think you applaud ignorance. Ignorance has caused far more evil than well informed people, so far as I know. After all, it was the founding fathers who insisted we be educated.

Today's education system (if you can call it a system) in the US is a shame. Today's Bachelor's degree is yesterday's high school diploma. Many college graduates don't use the English language properly, either in speech or on paper.

It's really hard to find a political conservative or libertarian professor in any college. That wouldn't really matter much, if the leftists weren't continually bringing politics into the lecture hall and pushing personal agendae.

Infrastructure built by private means has never been tried, that I know of, and as a construction worker, I can say from experience that municipal agencies are very poor about maintaining their roads, sewers, disposing of the city's trash, etc. City councils seem to regard pretty (and often ugly) objets d'art in front of their buildings--with their names on 'em--far more important than doing the nuts and bolts.

Personally I'd prefer private, for profit firms.

You should compare Canada's roads and waste disposal systems to America's, then. :)

I don't see a comparison. Canada's roads and trash systems are government run, same as ours. I don't know whose is better--except that the US roads and highways would be far superior, if maintained properly.

They're not maintained properly because they're government owned.

I miss a great exchange about foolishness (socialism) vs. intelligence (capitalism), and thank God for the Colonel.

Great job, dude. Mark never had a chance!
