I think the best quote I've heard to describe this, and it sucks because I can't remember the name of the guy on NPR who said it, was this: "Now, we privatize success and nationalize failure."

To be fair though, government loans do not, in any way, amount to socialism.

I'm moving to France.

I mean, life is awesome over there. Lots of wine, don't have to shower, and if Nazis invade the US will save you.

Seriously though, I definitely approve of the government stepping in to make sure our economy doesn't explode and take us all with it.

Look, when you're living in a commune built primarily, but not entirely, out of rainbows, those are exactly all the skills you need to survive.
