Must be nice.
The only possible way your rant has anything to do with that cartoon is that Barack Obama was still in school when Ronald Reagan's was president.

Towing the party line about the evil Wall Street bankers while the DNC and RNC take their money is indeed pretty amusing / sickening.

Considering the record fundraising numbers in 2008, it's not hard to see why no one from major financial institutions is doing hard time for allowing their industry to break the economy.

Can't blame them, though, they're just maximizing their utility with that good ol' profit motive

right? saying you can't pay your way out of jail and buy off Congress or purchase the occupant of the White House is like saying you hate America and want to be a socialist.

A sentiment not completely foreign to this forum.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: the only difference between America and socialism is who is calling the shots. Having a country totally ruled by the capitalist class is no different from a country totally ruled by the government.

That's not necessarily socialism, though.

Oh, I'm well aware. I'm simply commenting on the fact that so many Americans fear total control by the government when in reality they're controlled by just as small of a group.

I stand corrected. It is entirely the fault of all those damn poor people and low-wage workers. They're the ones that brought the economy down.

My bad.

It is entirely possible to love your country, but hate the way it's run. Of course, some people fail to make that distinction.

If they bought more the economy would be fine. So it is their fault.

No problem, I'll not name the poster but here's the latest: from 12/17 on the The Truth, Still Inconvenient thread.

That wasn't me, Indy has me on ignore. Probably because he labeled me a commie years ago.

That was me. And Indy is smart enough to get the point without thinking I truly hate America and everything it stands for.

Also, I'm 98% sure I was drinking when I posted that. Damn the mobile app.
