And do you really believe market forces set prices? How foolish you are. Where is there demand for $4 gas? yet its all over. There is a demand for $1 gas but you see none of it do you. Capitalism is the ultimate example of price fixing and corruption. Its as bad as the old communist system.Thom Lyons, Former Greens Candidate
I have no demand for a $2 gallon of gas but I do have demand for a 50 cent gallon, BUT the free market doesn't seemed to be reacting to my supply and demand.
Socialism is the syetem of choice is the most prosperous countries.
How can one man be so wrong?
UPDATE! Lifted from the Greens website linked above:
With over 10 years of university studies and 2 Bachelor's Degrees with work on a third plus work on a Masters Degree, he is one of the most highly educated Greens and potentially a great asset to the State Government.What to say?
FURTHER UPDATE! According to the same Greens website,
Thom's expertise is in Transport and Veterans' Affairs, having written the Party's Veterans Affairs Policy and co-authored the Transport Policies.And here is the Victorian Greens Veterans' Affairs Policy. Okay, it's not actually a policy in its own right, it's a part of their Community policy. But why let such trifles spoil the man's policymaking achievements! Behold, the mighty Veterans' Affairs (sub) policy in its entirety:
12. Veterans.Wow, crafting that must have drawn on all of Thom's two and a half degrees of expertise. One can only imagine what his contribution to the Transport policy consisted of.
12.1.1 The Greens support the development and implementation of a national Greens policy that addresses the special needs of veterans, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander veterans and Allied Veterans meeting the proper residency requirements.
12.1.2 The Greens recognise that veterans have been subjected to physical, psychological, atomic and chemical stress, with severe impact on the health and well-being of themselves and their families and dependents. Particularly vulnerable groups are those veterans who were subjected to chemicals such as Agent Orange, and to ionizing radiation during their services, either during the British atomic tests in Australia, or during their post war overseas services in the Hiroshima prefecture after World War II, and also government employees and civilians who were also subjected to ionizing radiation arising from nuclear activities.
12.1.3 The Greens also recognises the particular needs of the more than 7,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander veterans, their families and dependents.
