So I was talking to a friend about this. He's on the "right" side of the fence by several miles. We both have mixed feelings on the $700 billion USD bank bailout, but he leans towards "it's a good thing" somewhat heavy. I guess I am leaning that way.. not so sure yet, but we both agreed we want certain rules on how this money is used.
It then occurred to me in this country usually the average person has a phobia about a word calle "socialism." So I took this wonderful opportunity, to remind my very macho-pro Laissez Faire (aka ideal unsaddled capitalism), that this $700 USD bailout is a 100% SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT solution.
Ah, it's good to make people think.
(not that I see socialism as wrong, au contraire- in the right doses... just like capitalism).
