    Just like there's no such thing as a Free Football game.

    Let's have a football game with no stadium, no referees and no rules...now let's play football.

    There's no such thing as a free market, there HAS to be rules and there HAS to be regulations.

    When will you RW bastards get that through your thick skullls?

    There are rules and regulations just because you don't care for them in their current state does not mean they don't exist.

    Naww.. There are no contracts. No laws against fraud. No pressure from your customers to perform honestly. No expectations of keeping your corporate nose clean from the stockholders. No LIABILITY lawyers. NO civil proceedings.

    AND DEFINATELY -- not enough CENTRALIZED GOVT CONTROL.. Please help us Marc!!!

    When you you left wing bastards get it through your Thick Skulls that us right wing Bastards DO NOT want to do away with all Regulations. Oh wait nm You know that, You just Rather Demagog the Issue and make it out to be a choice between no Regulations, or Obama's Massive Increase of Regulations.

    Of Course we need Regulations, But we need smart regulations, Many of our Current ones are not. Often Times Redundant, or Ineffective, Or simply Unenforced. I am not sure why you think more Regulations will change anything when the Regulations in Place before the Crash we Either Ignored or Ineffective.

    I am so sick and fucking Tired of people, On both sides of the Isle, Polarizing every Issue. This isn't some all or Nothing Issue. You do not have to simply accept every Regulation no matter how stupid, Or Costly, or in-effective in order to be Pro regulations. There is this place called the Middle Ground where most Sane fucking people live.

    where you understand simple things like.

    Yes, regulations are needed, But should be Designed not to Place to Much Burden on the Industries they Seek to Regulate.
