Barack Obama bought and paid for these banks. They better get in line behind his plan to abolish the secret ballot in unionization elections. Thats Rachel Maddows position. The MSNBC host is furious that banks taking bail-out funds have the audacity to do what they think is in the best interest of their businesses, instead of supporting the presidents scheme to do away with what most Americans consider a sacred element of democracy: the secret ballot.
Apparently Citi and Bank of America have hosted conference calls in which opposition was expressed to the Obama-backed, Orwellian-named, Employee Free Choice Act, which would permit the abolition of the secret ballot in unionization elections. That infuriated Maddow tonight . . .

Actually, it’s the TAXPAYER’S dime, but that’s a minor detail to Maddow and her ilk.
After all, fascism is just one of socialism's many variants (not that they're completely identical.) If you define as socialist any ideology that advocates "socializing the means of production," then fascism is a socialist ideology.
The best description of the US government since the New Deal is fascist, in that the central theme has been authoritarian control of the economy by the Federal government, enabled by a totally dishonest "interpretation" of the Commerce Clause.
The New Deal also certainly imposed a significant amount of socialist/collectivist income redistribution, which was expanded in the following decades—especially by the "Great Society."
Nevertheless, some elements of free-market capitalism were also preserved—but only just enough to fool the gullible. Any substantive claim to free-market capitalism became questionable once an income tax was imposed, and the currency came under the control of a central bank. But the New Deal converted "free-market capitalism" into a museam exhibit that was still allowed some real use, under the watchful control of Federal and State bureacrats.
This is what happens when you lay down with dogs.
Looks like Mrs. Michael Moore.
If she's sporting a large gut she would be the perfect compliment to Olbermann.
no tuna for you tonight if you don’t take the Messiah’s cash
The banks should do the honorable thing. Return every cent and shut their doors. I won’t hold my breath.
Stress on the unintelligent. She asked a ceo of some major utility to take a loss to make up for decades of pollution. Anyone that stupid shouldn't be allowed to cross the street by themselves.
Those aren’t his dimes, Maddow.
You’re wrong again dude.
Because more homosexuals watch the Lesbian than DUmmies and KOSnuts watch Olbermann.
She’s a crazy lesbo on MSNBC, the Obama network.
Get with it. Mr. Obama owns your money now. It his to spend.
I was a conference call discussing possible impact of the legislation. Anyone with investments would be impacted. E.g., Citi downgraded WMT based on the risk of this law passing.
That sign is ... again ... an example of how the only way a liberal can express a thought is with something short & simple enough to fit on a bumper sticker.
