Good God

For some longish time, say thirty years, our representatives have agreed to deregulate industry and capital and, on the basis of the world outside my window and in my professional life, the results have been the opposite of the promises. Rick Perry, the Republican front runner, promises that should he become President:
The EPA officials we have an opportunity to put in place, they’re going to be pro-business, and there’s not going to be any apologies to anybody about it,” he said. “Those agencies won’t know what hit ‘em.”
Great, having destroyed any countless number of jobs and basically succeeding in recreating the 19th century, the neoliberals promise to destroy the environment so that not only will there be no decently paying jobs there will be no liveable world on which the poor can, like fish thrown on the river's bank, gasp for breath while they await their for their miserable lives to end.

Let's all raise a glass to St. Ronnie the Great Communicator and the triumph of the market.
