With capitalism, if I see something I need, I buy it, or if the price is too high, I build it myself.With socialism, a committee is elected or appointed, to make such decisions for me and everyone.If the committee decides the price is too high, they take it.Isn't that the birth of war?Isn't an "fluid-Constitution" socialism the most undemocratic, anti-social, governing structure of all?Does Liberty belong to the individual, or to the majority opinion? ...What is the best balance?

another opening on the war on terrorism....one new country after another. At home, we have our own terrorists- gangbangers, drug dealers, and youth gone astray. We are sitting on top of the biggest economic powder keg in 50 years, and all of these bailouts amount to nothing more than robbing Peter to pay Paul. India and Pakistan, which hate each other and have almost a fifth of the world's population, are sitting on nuclear weapons neither is afraid to use. Iran wants to blow Israel off the map and vanquish any memory of the United States of America........as does most of radical Islam. It is almost too late to reverse the damage of global warming and pollution.......and the list goes on and on and on......The Oracle- a prophet of doom?......No, just sober, realistic......How much more do you think this planet can take?......Enjoy your Christmas(es?) while you can......love your loved one's and your neighbors for all their worth.......

The big companies couldn't pay their bills, maybe because a lot of clients couldn't pay THEIR bills, but the big companies DID waste an awful lot, too.A lot of defaulted mortgages got paid off (..delivering the expected profits to the mortgage companies), auto co.'s received cash reserves to pay their ongoing bills(..which are still ongoing), and banks were given cash so that they could still lend money (..without having to lend their own).But whose money was it that got handed out???It couldn't have been tax monies, ..because that account has been overdrawn for years!Were profit-promising bonds sold to people who DO have money, to get that money to Congress, so that Congress could turn around and give it to those big companies who can't pay their bills anymore?Or did Congress just ask the Mint to print up several trillion new dollar bills? ..and then just hand those out to the companies?Doesn't that weaken the dollar? ..dilute its value? ..reducing everyone's bank account?

Hey, ..I'm just a guy with a hammer and nail..But I see there is this thing called "stock margin requirement" (Reg T, c.1974) that says "investors" (LOL!) "must be able to put up at least 50% of the money for any stocks they purchase". Hah!!!!Are you kidding me?? ..Let's say some company needs money, ..and they can't get it from a bank, probably because the ongoing concern just doesn't look "viable", ..but they are allowed to sell stock shares (..raise "capital") from people who don't even have enough money to buy those shares, ..who can't actually put up the money that those companies are now going to go out and spend!!Wall Street calls that "leverage". How's Wall Street doing these days?
