"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Spasiba, Comrade Bush!

Welcome to the Peoples Democratic Socialist Republic of America. Who would have believed that it would be George W. Bush who would usher in a "golden era" of Socialism in America? First we nationalize the banks, and I guess we go after the oil companies next.
The U.S. government is dramatically escalating its response to the financial crisis by planning to invest $250 billion in the country's banks, forcing nine of the largest to accept a Treasury stake in what amounts to a partial nationalization.
Welcome to the Brave New World.
