An open reply to an angry, health-conscious consumer...
 
Stocks are Intrinsically Worthless  (08 Apr 05)
In reality, stocks are no more valuable than baseball playing cards. In fact, they are valued in exactly the same way. That reality has a substantial, and undesirable, impact on our future.
 
Money is the Root of all Evil  (08 Apr 05)
In politics, it is indeed true that money is the root of all evil. The folks in Wisconsin's Clean Money campaign have done an exceptional job of pointing that out.
 
Americans Should Be Mad as Hell  (29 Mar 05)
They're growing fat, getting sick, and going broke. They've been taking it on the chin, and they just shouldn't take it anymore--because it's not something they're doing, it's something that's being done to them.
