    Actually it blows away what NASA had in 1970. The computers on board the lunar landers had less processing power than digital watches on the market just 10 years later.

    Really? This is pure crapola. The black man who depends on the government is a slave to it.

    And yes, my liberties and EVERY AMERICAN'S liberties are lessened by government involvement.

    You attempt to associate lbertarianism with squashing ANYBODY'S rights is dismissed. Libertarianism looks for liberty for every person, regardless.
    That is just not true at all. Without regulation, this country would be a hell hole for black folk. I literally cannot even imagine how corporations and even individuals would operate without regulation.

    One example is licensing occupations. This sounds like a good idea but it is quite often used as a barrier to prevent entry into the industry and protect those established in it.

    And despite licensing plenty of crooks still get into home improvement and plenty of bad barbers get into hair cutting. Those things can be handled without licensing.
    But I'm sure you'll ignore whatever lead to the need for licensing though right. Everything was hunky dory before we needlessly implemented licensing right?

    You do realize that regulation favors big corporations right? You know those evil rich folk that control DC so capitalism only works for them.

    That is no one else's fault but the people's. We've (not me) chosen to elect people that were OBVIOUSLY bankrolled by big corporations, and then act surprised when government screws us in favor of them. If you elect the right people, you get FDR again

    Modern levels of regulation work for established corporations by creating higher barriers of entry for new business ventures.

    Also, I take offense to the thought that regulation is the savior of black folk. Regulation destroyed the black family, depressed black wages and this should be obvious by your posts, developed a pipeline to prison through the war on drugs.

    Census Bureau data shows that from 1960 and 2013, African –American children who lived in single parent homes more than doubled from 22% to 55%. The same research showed that white children from single-parent homes tripled from 7% to 22%.

    Vedder and Galloway's Out of Work shows that the white to non-white workforce expanded after the civil rights era and the war on poverty.

    In 1930 the white unemployment rate was 6.59% and the non-white unemployment rate was 6.07%.
    In 1990 the white unemployment rate was 4.70% and the non-white unemployment rate was 10.1%. A staggering 2.1unemployment rate ratio.

    So let's try this again.

    Has regulation been the savior of the black family? OR are you willing to admit that perhaps the hearts and minds of a great many have changed in spite of extensive regulation.

    You have a very one sided view on things. Licensing can sometimes be self serving way for businesses to band together to keep prices and the barriers to entrance artificially high. It's not just protecting consumers although they can do that as well. Try looking through a different prism. How many black men and women could start businesses if they did not have to pay licensing fees? You just seem to be picking a conclusion and blocking out everything that doesn't support that conclusion.

    You don't need a complex web of regulations that SERVE TO PROTECT CORPORATIONS!

    Suing a company is much more of a threat and often times when they follow regulations they are exempted from lawsuits.

    And you seem to operate under the assumption that people and corporations would all behave nefariously if not regulated and policed by the government.

    LOL! No, it just didn't improve things and is therefore unnecessary in most cases.

    I am a libertarian and vote 3rd party quite often. You aren't going to try and claim libertarians are bankrolled by big corporations, are you?

    FDR sucked and is the grand daddy of an out control federal government.

    That sounds awful... FDR tried his best to ruin this country.. the New Deal was a complete abomination...

    Trump was NOT bankrolled by big business, everyone else for generations has been.
