Might makes right Capitalism: Rules of the road vs biggest truck making the road thinking.

We live in an era where industry has cut wide swaths through nature that have far flung impact.  In some areas it is too late to go back.  Look at fishermen in the gulf for the latest testimonials to one industry steam rolling another.  Deregulation and lack of enforcement of existing rules have brought us to a might makes right form of capitalism.  Surely there are conservative proponents for rules and their enforcement in maritime operations.  The truth is that big business has endangered our existence without any reforms to the existing structure of industrial trade and production.   The drill baby drill mantra is a siren song.

Blunt Points by Joe Blunt. Liberal Talking Points are here to provide serious thoughts on the state of the nation. If you make less than a million bucks a year you are wasting your valuable personal time if you watch faux news or listen to conservative radio. Don’t get suckered in by the bs and twisted view of facts. We should be brave and not afraid. Freedom in America is not about corporations running amok and taking control. America is about freedom in our personal lives.
