Hey, what’s going on?
First there was Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and now there is the wholesale nationalisation of AIG. Is the US turning socialist? Perhaps the government is looking into universal health care and land redistribution?
Whatever happened to: The Lexus and the Olive Tree, The Golden Straightjacket; There Is No Alternative, No two countries with a McDonalds have ever fought a war; Dog Eat Dog; Capitalism replenishing itself; Only the fittest survive; The End of History… and all the rest of the Neo-Con shite?
Milton Friedman must be turning in his grave.
Talking of Friedman’s, what happened to Thomas? Has he been put out to graze in the forest?
