  1. Uh, ‘scuse me lady . . . yeah you with the open pie hole, the one with the “NO Socialism” sign . . . I’ve got some bad, bad news for you . . . remember when 150 million US taxpayers funded a 180 billion “loan” to AIG, cause it was “too big to fail” . . . (cover your ears now, this is gonna hurt) . . . THAT’S SOCIALISM.” The US gov’t now owns 80% of the AIG shipwreck. Its losses were SOCIALIZED by the handover of 180 billion in US Treasury funds — taxes we paid — in return for 80% state ownership. (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124951576916509361.html). In plain English lady, the “state”– that’s the U.S. — gave AIG — that’s the the private sector corporation — 180 billion dollars of US treasury funds (which consists of taxes we pay), in return for 80% ownership. That’s called SOCIALIZING corporate loss.

    More AIG related news: AIG and the New York Fed are going to give Wall Street bankers a boatload of money (est. $100 B) to “manage” the AIG shipbreaking process. For example, the Wall Street vampire known as “BlackRock, Inc.” will get between 50-96 million dollars over the next 3 years in “management fees” to shipbreak AIG.

    Want more Socialism lady . . . (well you’re gonna have to read rather than scream), but here’s a few examples (http://www.propublica.org/special/government-bailouts):
    1. Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac – 400 billion;
    2. Auto industry – 25 billion;
    3. Citigroup – 280 billion (the employer of the 100 million dollar man, Andrew Hall);
    4. Bank of America – 142 billion

    Get the picture lady?

  2. Juriscribe this article sheds some light on the judical and insurance industry. This section was very revealing to me. —

    One night, I went to dinner with six McAllen doctors. All were what you would call bread-and-butter physicians: busy, full-time, private-practice doctors who work from seven in the morning to seven at night and sometimes later, their waiting rooms teeming and their desks stacked with medical charts to review.

    Some were dubious when I told them that McAllen was the country

  3. I think I read that article by Gawande before. This is fascinating stuff, and I find he’s the real thing. The frustration for us is . . . why is the important information always so obscure and unknown to the general public. It’s like we’re living in two worlds, which I guess is exactly what we’re seeing with health care lunacy.
