The title of this topic is pretty specific, but very ignored in the associated debate/discussion/holding-forth. Is that because the answer is simply “no”?


No? I laid out several things the free market was doing for this pandemic and economic collapse, and people generally ignored them.

Does that tell you anything?


That a free and self-organizing economy is more nimble and capable of swiftly shifting to meet new requirements, needs, and situations than government institutions?

Neither one of them seems to be accomplishing much at the moment.

It's almost as if we should look at our current model and make some much needed changes.

A lot of images are protected from theft now and cannot be posted with their online URL. If you wish to post an image it's best to download it...right click on the image and select "save image as".

Then go to Imgur and click on "New Post" and upload the image.
After the image has uploaded, right click on it and select "copy image address".
You may then use the image tool in the CHB reply window toolbox to post the image.

Free photobucket accounts no longer support third party posting of images. Imgur is free. There may be other image hosting websites you prefer and if so please use them.

The owners and staff at CHBRR apologize for the inconvenience.


Of course the other problem is just not having the server space to host them locally even if one COULD upload from your own box.
So in the end it's a server space/bandwidth use issue as much as a copyright issue.

Sure would be nice to examine some examples of that. Or is just a warm fantasy? Seems like human frailties like greed tends to get in the way, especially since the free market stuff doesn't have any restraints on selfishness or lack of ethics. If you disagree with that, I'd be willing to consider some real life examples.

Clearly you don't know how government works. The budget analysis and budgeting was set-up by a Republican administration. It was executed by a Democrat administration.

Cheap and chintzy Republicans never consider cost over runs and never have backup plans. Their black and white, all or nothing thinking doesn't allow for any deviation to the plan - only 100% planned execution.

The only way your hyperbole would be valid is if there were change orders to the program materials or design during the Democratic administration. Please feel free to cite the change orders. smile

I can tell you...but the information will cost you. Capitalism, you now the thing that you think our society is operating on at this moment in time.

As near as I can tell, he "didn't make it worse". That's not quite the same as "made it better".

Your orange guy made it worse, the families and loved ones of 57,000 dead Americas in six weeks can tell you that. Trump's incompetence left thumbprints around their necks.

Hmm
