I just got an email from Vinny Catalano (vinnycatalano.blogspot.com) and stole his subject line for this blog post. He writes about the porn industry now asking for a bailout. Of source, its a stunt but if porn - a thriving business - wants help, then everyone should get in line for help, too.
In another email received ealier today from friend Tom McMahon, he sent a Calvin & Hobbes cartoon from 15 years ago. Evidently, Calvin's lemonade stand business practices were so rife with greed that his business failed. He went to his personal govenrment (Mom) for a subsidy.
Here is the link at one of the humor websites:
Amazingly accurate and relevant to today.
Socialism cannot change these attitudes. Only a good housecleaning by capitalism can flush out these greedy idiots. But since we are a civilized nation, a safety net for the innocent victims is still a good idea. Innocent victims are workers laid off by failing companies - not management and not dumb investors.
