  •  making money by failing is the American way... (0+ / 0-)

    ...despite all the hype from Republicans, in my opinion the public sector (i.e. government), as poor and ineffective as it might be sometimes, has nothing on corporations when it comes to gross negligence and incompetence. The Dilbert comic strip is considered satire by many and it is quite funny, but, based on my lifetime experience in the work place, it's actually quite true. Most companies are run by self-consumed, greedy, incompetent rubes and the people they appoint (much like them).

    And, based on the way the economy's been over the past 5-6 years, it's quite evident that those in charge of banking, finance, mortgage and virtually every other major industry have demonstrated that they are, basically, incompetent.

    Where Republicans come up with the notion that the private sector is more efficient and effective than the public sector is beyond me. There is scant evidence to provde it. But, all of the major mass media in this country is owned by Republicans, so their ongoing propaganda machine continues on spewing all of these lies to a sheepish, cowardly public.
