To: ksen; 21twelve

“Obviously that guy worked a lot harder than you, your kids and your grandkids. Only a red-card carrying communist would think otherwise.

Stop being a taker 21twelve!!!”

Hopefully ksen is being ironic rather than serious. The assumption that an executive of a failed TARP bailed-out bank “worked harder than” 21twelve and therefore earned his loot is unwarranted. A financial system which gives privileged TBTF institutions get-out-of-bankruptcy-free cards when their reckless managers bet the farm and lose is ALREADY “red”. This “when our bet pays off, the profits are ours; when our bet turns up snake-eyes we socialize the loss to the peons” system is communism for the well-connected. Such robbery by the TBTF bankster nomenklatura is called “hardly working”, not “working harder”, and is as reprehensible as any Red Soviet commissar’s racket.

Yes, I was being sarcastic in that post. It disturbs me that barring direct stories like this a large swath of FReepers do argue the way I just did but unironically.

Example #1: The whole takers/makers meme.
