Erik, please either shut up or at least make some kind of meaningful points.
"Poverty level" means absolutely nothing, because it's an entirely subjective
term... 'poverty' in the US is utterly incomparable to real poverty in the
third world and elsewhere.

And how the hell do you intend to 'regulate' an economy without a big evil
government? The free market is the natural state of an economy; only big
government can convert it into the kind of mess we see in the modern world.

Frankly, I'm really tired of reading all this crap; I will debate the merits
of the free market on other lists (and often do), but I sure as hell don't
want to come in to work in the morning and have to delete 50 or 60 of these
messages on this list every day.
