    :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: Sooooooo, we find ourselves in a crisis -- pushed against the proverbial wall -- where 'true colors' tend to come out, right? :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Now, in this crisis, "many" have opined as to how social harm -- upset, turmoil, roiling of the greater social order -- can all be avoided if, as a group, society were to step in and actively, financially, support some institutions and individuals, such that the impact of this crisis is blunted, and the net impact post hoc will be minimized.

    E.G.: Government will buy up debt paper and equity(ies), and hold them with a specific eye towards profitable ownership on behalf of the government. (Oh, and taxpayer.:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:)

    I recall this idea somewhere..... Government ownership -- Social ownership -- what was that calleddddd? What was that calleddddd?

    Oh yeah. Socialism.

    When are the Democrats going to pick this up?

    Am I the only middle-of-the-road, NEVER-tRumping Republican who thinks this is hiLARious???

    I am looking at two parties chock-full of nincompoops.:cool:

    Decent point, but we have been down the rabbit hole for decades now.

    One of my favorite things I hear is when people claim to 'own their house'. I find that to be hilarious.

    So, when President Donald Trump helps Americans who lost their jobs and tries to save US businesses and jobs, that is Socialist? Yet, illegals (foreigners) can get all manner of freebies from extreme liberals and that is not Socialism? Ah, hypocrisy is so thick for our ET trolls. You clowns do not have any credibility in your bodies and a joke.
