Socialism for the Rich: How Did Wall Street Just Get $3000.00 from Every Man, Woman, and Child in America?

Answer: Deregulation, followed by George Bush and the “ol’ boys network” falling asleep at the wheel.

Think of the looting of Iraq’s National Museum and presidential palaces after America’s occupation of Baghdad.

Policing was not done, and theft proceeded unhindered.

That’s what has happened on Wall Street—but now the cost of the looting is being socialized, and the people responsible for their investment gambling will not be held accountable for their behavior.

    let New York City’s Wall Street crooks fail. I don’t want to pay for it.

    The poor man is called a socialist if he believes that the wealth of the rich should be divided among the poor, but the rich man is called a financier if he devises a plan by which the pittance of the poor can be converted to his use.
