Ahhhhh, supply-siders and free marketeers, squealing like little pigs when it’s THEIR tails that get caught. I once defined “stoicism” (as known to the ancient Greeks) as the philosophy of the rich and powerful. It’s easy to believe that things are the way they are because either it’s the best way or the only way for them to be…when you’re on top. The Free Market solves everything. Perhaps it is solving THIS. It’s time we got rid of the tinhorn gamblers who are playing high-finance poker with our lives, our money, our welfare. But watch how fast Mr. MBA rushes around saying, “We’ve got to bail out the banks right away!” After all, it’s HIS base that’s in trouble now. We rush into things too much in this country. Let’s make this bail-out do more for the people who’ve really been hurt, the ones who’ve lost homes and jobs. It’s just too bad that we can’t grab the assholes who bailed themselves out with their golden parachutes and have skipped town.
Maybe that’s the ticket for John McCain. He desperately wants to invade SOMEWHERE. Perhaps it’s time to invade the Cayman Islands?
