Well I went to Starbucks to buy some coffee, then headed over to costco to pick up some essentials. I then proceeded to Chinatown where I had 50 different restaurants to choose from(I chose Vietnamese Pho). After having some grub i went home and renewed my netflix subscription for $4.99 a month and had to decide between 200 different movies to choose from.

However thanks to the C-D Politics and Other Controversies forum being filled with rational individuals I better I enjoy all this while I can cause the big bad Obama is going to swoop in and destroy all of Capitalism. I heard all his destructive plans are on a legal notepad in the white house.

Not very well. The banks are getting bigger and richer and Wall Street is riding high. Only the American sheeple are suffering but as long as they get another unemployment extension and keep the cable TV on, they are happy too.

You mean they're not already? They all seem to look the same and have the same menu.

I see capitalism as something like an ongoing chemical reaction. It has to be maintained and occasionally buffered.

Unfortunately, too many people in this country think that a few grams of baking soda mean the commies are taking over.

The argument is disingenuous anyway-they never squealed about "Socialism" when Bush first infused tax payer money into the arm of the American economy to stop it from going down in flames.
