Rudy spells out the hypocrasy, unknowingly

From Eschaton:

Jim Cramer is interviewing Rudy. I don't have the sound on, but the captions are funny. First one.

Giuliani: The US Should Increase Its Coal Supply Through Government Subsidies

About 4 minutes later:

Giuliani: Business And Government Are Separate - And That's Non-Negotiable

Rudy inadvertently spelled out the "free trade" fallacy with these two statements.

Where would Wal-Mart or any big corporation be without subsidies? Fewer places. They'll take all the government money they can get, but anything else the government (or the People) try to give them (like regulations and taxes) is "socialist," "unAmerican," the like. I can't think of any better way to describe what is so fucked up with free trade cheerleaders than this contradiction.

All you have to do is listen to them speak for 4 minutes and they'll prove their stupidity on their own.
