I am so sick of seeing that scene on Fresh Prince where Will tells Uncle Phil about his dad with captions like “this was improvised!” And “Will Smith’s dad really left him!” Because he actually didn’t?? And was around his whole childhood and was super supportive of him??
YES. Even though his mom and dad had split up when he was a kid, Will Smith cites his own father as inspiration to become a dad himself.
"The idea is that since the main goal of all private corporations is to make money, they’ll be much more willing than the government is to cut costs and eliminate waste. The result, conservatives and libertarians say, will be more efficient, responsible, and responsive services. That’s the theory, at least. In reality, privatization of public services has been a total disaster wherever it’s been tried. And, as a new report from the Center for Media and Democracy shows, it’s also created huge opportunities for fraud and corruption. The report, which was released today and is titled “Pay to Prey,” focuses on how Republican governors in states all across the country used the cover of privatization to enrich campaign donors and political cronies. The worst culprits include some the biggest names in Republican politics."
Privatization only lowers costs when profits are higher at lower costs (i.e. when raising costs will lower the rate of purchase enough that any benefits gained by having a higher price point are canceled out). Services that are necessary to live, literally or in terms of functioning in society, inherently have a captive consumer base. Anyone who can afford to pay for whatever it is must do so, and thus corporations only have to lower costs enough to get the highest number of people possible paying. And when they have a captive consumer base, they only have to provide the minimum amount and quality of service and maintenance.(via jean-luc-gohard)
