… but here are my questions:

Obama wants to charge market-rates for access to Him on Election Night. Cool. Then why is he yammering against capitalism?

Does he just not understand that this is pure free-market, unadulterated supply-and-demand capitalism?

If it’s good for him why isn’t it good for the rest of us?

Something to think about…

About Alex Scipio

About Alex Scipio: Alex moved out of the People's Republic of California to the Free State of Arizona, finally tiring of the lack of the Bill of Rights, the overgrown idiocracy, and the catering to non-Americans & welfare recipients. He still wonders how America got from Truman, Eisenhower, and Daniel Patrick Moynihan to the Liberal and Conservative extremes so badly managing America today. And, yes, islam DOES need to be annihilated. And doing what he can to get folks away from the extremes of political life.

    There are many reasons why obama should not become POTUS – but putting aside all of them the two big ones: watching Keith Olberman’s meltdown and seeing the Obama party turn into a pity party.
