Bailout Fascism: Merger of Corporations with the STATE

Moreover, as quantitative easing and bailouts become standard operating procedure, i.e. “The New Normal” true improvement in the economy is unlikely to materialize without first a fundamental shift back towards true free market capitalism.
Gun Control Empowers Criminals to Commit Violence
Bubba welcomes Bill Whittle back to the show to discuss the relationship between gun control laws and per capita murder rates around the nation. Bill comments that the U.S. statistically is a very safe place and that the highest murder rates in the world occur where governments restrict an individual’s Natural Right to the use of guns. Bill points to the fact that cities controlled by “progressive” liberal democrats enforcing strict firearms laws are the largest perpetrator of gun violence and the highest murder rates.

The discussion then turns President Obama’s Executive Order pertaining to immigration. Bill comments on the recent executive order on Immigration.

Bill does not support the position illegal aliens have “guaranteed rights,” stating guaranteed rights should be reserved for U.S. citizens. He concludes citing an interview with a candidate for the Attorney General’s office in which she advocates illegal aliens should have an equal opportunity for jobs with citizens.
