United Peoples Socialist States of Amerikka

Wow . . . congrats America! You now own an insurance company. Thanks to the central banks of China and the European Union, we can put that $85 billion on the 'ol card at a reasonable interest rate . . .

'Course this is OK with the righties, as long as the rich dumbasses who drove FNMA and FDMC and AIG and Bear Stearns and Merrill Lynch get theirs, we can all just merrily hum along . . .

Ya know, after this latest batch of bailouts, the right has even more in common with Stalin's Russia. . . aside from the prison camps, torture, supension of the rule of law whenever, conservatives can now throw in state ownership of massive [failed] companies.

Since we are on this kick, why not grab the oil companies too and get some price relief? How about it rethugs? Why stop? Let all your fascistic tendencies spill out completely and let's get this (peoples) party started!
