1.) Why isn’t this comment from Bernie Sanders getting more play:
We must end the danger posed by companies that are “too big too fail,” that is, companies whose failure would cause systemic harm to the U.S. economy. If a company is too big to fail, it is too big to exist.
I know he is an evil socialist, but I have been asking the same thing for weeks. We broke up AT&T, went after Microsoft, and are thinking about the great gizoogle. Why are we not breaking up the financial organizations that we are all learning are the underpinning of our economy?
And, btw, as part owners of Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, and AIG, and about to dump over a trillion to prop up the free market, can any of us really call anyone a socialist anymore?
2.) Now that the taxpayer is on the hook for “rescuing” the markets and thus rescuing America, making fun of Joe Biden for calling paying your taxes patriotic seems a little silly now, doesn’t it? Of course, maybe we should just go out and be really patriotic and shop some more, just like President Bush urged us to do after 9/11.
