    Thank goodness for all those regulations we have on Wall Street to prevent shit like this?

    *Voice above whispers into my ear* Really? You're kidding? REALLY?

    Sorry, looks like we really have no regulations on Wall Street at the moment. Pure Capitalism at it's finest folks.

    That's what happens when we tell banks that they get a bailout no matter what. You know, look at how big the bonuses AIG and other bailout recipients are dishing out with -bailout- money. It's bullshit. But it's a direct result of incompetent people getting money (or promised to get money) that they don't deserve. Pure socialism at it's finest.

    Pure Capitalism is the reason you have that nice computer you're using right now. Imagine if the gubamint made it.

    Bob, if you believe in freedom then why do you seek more gubamint control?

    If the US government hadn't funded it then ENIAC wouldn't have existed.

    Capitalism can't exist without government looking out for its interests. Oh and there is no "pure" capitalism, it sucks off the public tit.
