Mr. Vidiot's Morning Thoughts.

Mind you, this is before he's even had his coffee.

So he comes barreling out of the shower and starts:

MV: I was just thinking...

Me: Uh-oh.

MV: The 'supposed' power behind capitalism is competition, right?

Me: Yeah, because there's no such thing as a monopoly. < / snark>

MV: I said 'supposed.' Anyway, and last night, you told me that the United States was really a corporation...

Me: A little known factoid. Yes. [See US CODE: Title 28,3002. Definitions (15) "United States" means — (A) a Federal corporation; (B) an agency, department, commission, board, or other entity of the United States; or (C) an instrumentality of the United States.]

MV: Which is further proof that they don't give a damn about we, the people. A corporation's sole motivation is profit. They don't serve the people, they serve profit. Maximize profit at the expense of all else. They have no morals. It's all about the profit. It's the very definition of a corporation.

Me: Yes dear.

MV: Sooooo, if the US is a corporation, then all nation states should be corporations, then we should make them compete with each other! I mean, we should be able to change our citizenship as easy as we change cell phone service. And countries should be made to compete for citizens by offering benefits like health care, free education, better roads, better jobs, etc. Isn't that perfect?!

Sometimes, it's a weird little world over here at Casa Vidiot. (I'm not saying he doesn't have a point though.)

Citizens should always question their government and I for one have been better educated today.

Fabulous post.
