8. Thanks!

I get so tired of the lies on Fox and from the corporations, business, banks and lobbyists extolling the glories of the free market and how we should privatize everything. The Forbes money show on Fox on weekends is especially bad. I've worked in private, non-profit and government; all have efficiency, bureaucratic problems but government can't touch the corruption, greed and profit in the private corporations, particularly in the military industrial complex which Ike warned us about more than 60 years ago. And Obama is asking for billions more to spend in Iraq while ISIL is killing Iraqis with the war machinery we left them from our privatized ten-year disastrour war.
