No stinking regulations back then. Kids could work 12-14/hr. days, and people could eat bad meat, and the government kept its power-grubbing hands out of the free market.

True capitalism, unfettered. Great time to be alive.

Thanks from Camelot and Hollywood

Yep. Didn't have to worry about women voting, it was illegal.
No OSHA to protect workers from unsafe working conditions, fuck the worker, he could be easily replaced if maimed or killed.
No Consumer Protection Agency, fuck the consumer.
Ah, the good old days....well, IF you where a wealthy white male.

Well OF COURSE that's when America was SOOOOOO very great !!! Rich white men absolutely ruled the world. No uppity negroes, women KNEW their place, plenty of micks and wops right off the boats supplementing the cheap labor already being supplied by the former slaves. No rules, no regulations. Perfectly legal to bribe your politicians. A mall cadre of men SO rich and powerful they could, and often did, get away with murder, rape and only God knows what else. Just as long as their victims weren't other rich white men or their immediate families !!!

I'm sure Trump and many of his billionaire supporters absolutely yearn for the halcyon days of the early industrial age !!
Thanks from Hollywood

So you take a hyperbolic statement that refers to decades ago, then say its Trumps fault. There is the response. Have a great day.

KeK be upon thee
