Alberto Gonzales was paid $40,000 for a recent hour-long speech at the University of Florida – the amount made by 2 years of work for many laborers in America or the amount made by a lifetime of work in many other countries. That’s capitalism in a nutshell. It’s not so much “the rich get richer” as “the scum get richer”. Perhaps you call that “profit needed for poor Alberto’s survival”. Or perhaps you just call that “free market economics”. At $40,000 the market doesn’t seem so free… as the University of Florida is a public institution receiving public funds Florida and American taxpayers just paid for 3 years of scholarship money to go for one hour of scum speaking. Or perhaps you would call Gonzales a “hard worker”, a “success story”. Those lifetime laborers earning $40,000 are perhaps by your definition “lazy” or a “failure”.
The police quickly escorted a couple protestors from the same stage as Gonzales and arrested them. The same police wouldn’t so much as blink if those same protestors protested you or me. This is the capitalism you defend. Well done, sir. Perhaps you should consider who has a better effect on America, one hour of Alberto or two years of American work.
