And Yet Mr. President...


...We still rely on an economic operating system that automatically cares far more about profit than it does about not selling poison. How could it be otherwise when not only are huge profits still connected to one poison or another, but large segments of our population have their very economic survival dependant on keeping the jobs that the production of these poisons provide. How could there be a more damning paradox for any economic operating system than the tradeoff inherent in "sure, you can stop making the poison, but you have to risk being put out on the street to do it, even if we do toss you a few bones of retraining."
