John Stossel - Serious Crony Capitalism

These are the highlights
(which will disappear when Fox claims copyright):

HT: Vulcan’s Hammer (again).

Here is the entire segment, via Hulu
(which, hopefully, will stick around):

Capitalism is the only fountain of human progress.
Crony Capitalism is akin to sodomy.
Where else have we been seriously sodomized?
Start with the housing debacle & the ethanol debacle.
But, both will pale next the to the “Green Jobs” assault.

Sodomy appears to be standard operating procedure in the Obama administration - but it is rampant and utterly beyond limit in the current democrat-controlled congress.

Unfortunately, Dubya was also fiscally a democrat sodomite and crony capitalist. At least Bush cut taxes and defended America against terrorists. The housing debacle however belongs squarely to the Obamasites (which rhymes nicely with sodomites).

Great post, SBVOR; capitalism and religion are the pillars upon which civilization depends.

The sodomites are not fond of either.

In using this metaphor, I hope all understand that political sodomy is never consensual.

In the more literal sense, I don’t care which consenting adult prefers what -- so long as I am not forced to pay their health care bills. But, I am. And, there’s the rub.

I agree with your assessment of Bush.

When he signed Medicare Drug Benefits into law, Bush became the biggest so-called “Progressive” since LBJ.

When Bush allowed Paulson & Bernanke to hoodwink him into Wall Street Bailouts, he got in bed with the Crony Capitalist Dims -- the masters of that game.
