Hey George, did your little pet Chiwawa turn on you. Thats the problem with progressives. You think you control them right up until the put you up against the wall. A lot of rich business men supported Hitler during his rise to power, under the false assumption that he was someone they could deal with. Only later did the have their factories seized by the government and give to his cronies. And if they resisted they just found their way into a grave.

First Buffet and now Soros? This bank tax is not popular with the limousine liberals. They are quite happy to call for higher taxes on the little people though.
