If this is extreme, I don't want to be moderate.

- Over 50% of US tax dollars go towards the military (which is why we're all rich, right?)
- Only 4% of American forests still exist
- 99% of products are trashed within 6 months
- Indigenous peoples in third world countries are better off in native poverty than they are in having foreign investors come and provide job opportunities
- The government, corporations and media have all been working together for the last 50 years in a conspiracy to train us to hate ourselves and find comfort in materialism.

In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state's role absolute. In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.
Nor should we turn a blind eye to the fact that the spirit of free enterprise, including the principle of personal responsibility of businesspeople, investors and shareholders for their decisions, is being eroded in the last few months. There is no reason to believe that we can achieve better results by shifting responsibility onto the state.
And one more point: anti-crisis measures should not escalate into financial populism and a refusal to implement responsible macroeconomic policies. The unjustified swelling of the budgetary deficit and the accumulation of public debts are just as destructive as adventurous stock-jobbing....My conviction is that reasonable restraint in military spending, especially coupled with efforts to enhance global stability and security, will certainly bring significant economic dividends.
I hope that this viewpoint will eventually dominate globally. On our part, we are geared to intensive work on discussing further disarmament.

While being questioned by Fox’s Bill O’Reilly about why there is so much bitterness following the ObamaCare vote, Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell falls back on the tired old liberal argument that the average American just isn’t quite smart enough to understand the complicated health care bill.
Maybe so, Governor, but you’d be surprised how many of those stupid Americans are smart enough to spell ‘liberal elitist’.
