Of course you hate capitalism, you wouldn't know it if it smacked you upside the head.

And it is the US government and treasury that requires billions stolen from profitable finance every year to pay for all its middle class entitlement boondoggles to the ungrateful populist rubes on mainstreet, not the reverse.

This from a guy who rationalizes billions in goverment bailouts to GS via AIG - government guarantees that did not exist at the time GS purchased the credit default swaps. Methinks I understand capitalism just fine - under capitalism, GS would have eaten the $13 billion in losses because they failed to properly account for risk - that IS what capitalism is about, risk versus reward. What you are shilling for is fascism, where the well-connected run to the taxpayer when their schemese go south. Fascism, which is what you have a tingle down your leg for, apparently.

You may have the last word, for what little it is worth.
