    I find it symptomatic that the government, after strong-arming BoA into buying Countrywide Mtg, is now fining BoA billions for Countrywide’s pre-purchase practices.

    “by the people, of the people…”

    Keynes said a lot more than spend when there’s a recession. He said save when there isn’t and don’t create permanent costs (entitlements). So, sure, promote Keynes, but let’s remember the next time we’re a “wealthy” country, we should be cutting social security and medicare not “sharing the wealth”. Oh you didn’t really mean you think Keynes was right then?

    Um, no. Government does NOT bestow rights.

    “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. "

    So what are they reading? Porn and comic books? There are some pretty good things on TV if you look for them; I don’t think – given the entirety of the books in print – much can be said that indicates books are anymore culturally elevated over what’s available on the history channel, the discovery channel, PBS, etc.

    Refusing to support all 700 channels when you only want one is like refusing to pay for the ‘social contract’ of supporting your 700 neighbors who want government services but you’re the only one with a professional job. So buck up, sissypants.

    The limbs are twice as long on the right side as the left. That’s one seriously damaged dead guy outline. I wonder if (s)he were born that way…

    If the middle class were killed off, who does Stahler think voted out the republicrats? The reality is – today’s republican party has more in common with Kennedy’s administration than with Lincoln’s.
