Rights over responsibility

I don't think it's an American thing though, it's universal unfortunately

or the US citizen for walmart and the US government for unending food stamps

Remember, the US government Bailed them out and then tried to place the blame on wall street,Who's more guilty in this scenario, the government for taking the peoples money or wall street for taking what the government first took( stole if you ask me)

Please explain to me how what happened at walmart, and credit default swaps are the same.
Also, Doesn't it seem kind of childish/liberal to deflect from the topic at hand by pointing a finger in another direction to effectively end the discussion?

What's wrong with 'Merica? Dude, so many things. I can go off in a Frank E. Dec style tangent but I'm afraid the Shadow Government will know what I would say and they will apprehend me without word of reason, keep me in solitary confinement for years without a cause or justification and execute me without my family's knowledge to keep me silent as per the Patriot Act.

Egad! Liberals!!!! smile.gif

Honestly though, I don't "hate" fox news or any news outlet. They all serve their function. Faux news is a right wing propoganda mouthpiece just like MSNBC is a left wing propoganda mouthpieces. Per usual most of the facts/truth lay somewhere in the middle. smile.gif

I would rather discuss music and guitar though so I'll let other folks post after today. Enjoy!

I never said they were the same? I was playing a bit of a clever word game with a previous post smile.gif Just trying to interject some levity and avoid a bit troll fest/flame war/etc. I"d rather be talking about guitar stuff.

I was just wondering how you could come up with a comparison of the two being the "same story" or even how they could be remotely related.

"Replace WALMART with WALLSTREET and FoodStamps with "Credit Default Swaps" and bingo!! Same story but with Billions of dollars."

But it's all good, I would rather talk guitar and music as well.

Peace! smile.gif
