Liberal Group Campaign for America's Future: Depressions Are Cool, They Bring Us Retribution and Socialism
— Ace

"Salutory:"

The bail out will take place simply to avoid that depression. But depressions have some salutary effects - the scoundrels go belly up, the weakest get purged. And, in the wake of the disaster, people demand strict regulation of the money lenders to keep their greed in check, and government spends money on the real economy to put people back to work.

Geraghty wonders if the idea that the Democrats are actually engineering this to usher in a new era of socialism is really that far-fetched.

1 Keynesian economics making a comeback?

You know, the tales I have heard from people who lived in places like USSR and such were not happy tales.

Those people were not pro-socialism at all.

Odd that.

9 I kind of doubt it.  Any more than I believe that all the folk on the right who oppose the bail out are terrible, evil people either.  Sometimes folk just don't agree.  And right now the Repubs ar hurting themselves with their base worse than the Dems are with theirs.  Not because they support a bail out, but becuase they haven't bothered to explain that it's not the Repubs fault that it is necessary, and that they will made damn sure that we won't have to do another one in a couple of months.  The Repubs are swallowing too much right now.  And asking their base to swallow too much without  exxplaining what they are going to do to make certain this doesn't happen again.  They need to get out in font of that.

11 There's one line of argument that Pelosi monitored the bailout motion vote by vote to make sure enough Repods were voting Aye to prevent them from turning it into a Dem bill. Kinda makes sense. There's another that says Pelosi's plan was to make sure Repods were seen as responsible for killing the Two Barney Bail Out [Franks & Bush] so Irish Barry can emerge to lead a plan to nationalize banking. Also kinda makes sense- maybe more.

12 Funny...Alfred's line from The Dark Knight was the first thing that I thought of as well. "Some men just want to watch the world burn."

I think that pain is a necessary side-effect of growth. I think that taking responsibility for our mistakes is an ethical necessity. I do not think that there is any moral value in pointless destruction, nor in self-flagellation. It's actually a kind of repulsive indulgence to wallow in misery this way. Only a fool chooses misery when other options exist.

Dideretards dog,

You make a valid point, but I highly doubt the Democretarded party is organized enough to engineer what is going on to bring about a new era of socialism through this economic retardation.  That's fucking retarded.

But you are right, they do seem even a little more organized than the Retarded party.

Read Jonah's Liberal Fascism if you haven't, and you'll get a good primer on how the socialist left works historically.  This is all a political ploy to scare the masses into voting for socialism.

And.... why is everyone so pissed about ACORN, but is afraid to mention what that acronym stands for ?  Association of COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS for Reform Now.  Talk about rabble-rousing.  This is where Obama cut his teeth.

22 As I said elsewhere, I was getting all worried until I saw that Obama News Outlet Time, now that the Obamamessiah has approved the bailout, was pushing forward their latest piece of propaganda about why we should learn to love it.

http://tinyurl.com/46hlds

And inside I found some disturbing facts:

-- Banks are no longer making subprime loans

-- Banks are demanding a higher interest rate for jumbo loans

-- People with lower incomes are getting fewer credit card solicitations

-- It now takes average or better credit scores to get the lowest rates on auto loans

-- CD yields, which represent banks moving towards more cash deposits, are rising

OMG. We're all going to die. I mean, we HAVE to approve this bailout so that banks can make more subprime and cheap jumbo loans, so that people with lower incomes can get more credit cards and cars, and so people will stop putting their money into banks and start spending it instead.

/sarc

Ever get the idea that the Democrats use the poor as a blunt instrument? Why are the Democrats always suing and demanding that companies extend poor people credit, then turning right around and demanding that those same companies be punished for "predatory tactics"?

Again, what McCain needs to do here is say flat-out, "Obama supports taxpayer dollars being used to support those who took out mortgages they couldn't afford and those who were greedy enough to give them those mortgages. I don't. Let's talk about something that helps those businesses and companies who these actions hurt first, and put those who caused the damage at the back of the line."

Except Adam Smith, who many people credit with the idea of Laissez Faire capitalism used that line first. 

"The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. A tax upon house-rents, therefore, would in general fall heaviest upon the rich; and in this sort of inequality there would not, perhaps, be anything very unreasonable. It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

The American public sniffed out this scam. Gargantuan financial interests manufactured this crisis in order to shake down the American taxpayer. Busted. Ace got jobbed.

Pelosi brought that bill to the floor only because she thought it would pass. My hunch is that Boehner told her he had 90-100 votes for it. She dealt out the "Get out of Vote Free" cards to her cronies. He lied. Beautifully.

33 I need ideas.

If ACORN uses the "livable wage" as a pillar of their platform for change, but goes to court to sue employees asking for ACORN to pay minimum wage, what's the angle if ACORN has placed bailing out people that should never have been approved for loans in the first place as one of their new pillars?

The founders of ACORN just admitted to extorting the organization for their own benefit, right?

I will summarily submit their names for Chairman of the new regulatory board that oversees whatever the hell bill Washington passes.

The constant refrain made by the Astroturfing Sockpuppets for the Vomit over at Townhall.com is “deregulation” and Wall Street CEO greed.

Geraghty wonders if the idea that the Democrats are actually engineering this to usher in a new era of socialism is really that far-fetched.

My dad, who was alive at the time although very young, swears that Cactus Jack Garner as speaker of the house did exactly that from '29 to '32. He blocked every move that Hoover tried to make in order to right the economy so that Hoover would be discredited and the Dems could take the White House in '32. Mr. Garner, being from a southern state and it being only two generations since the reconstruction, was unelectable and so the country got an east coast aristocrat named FDR. History was rewritten to show Hoover as a later day Nero who didn't care about the little man and basically fiddled while the country burned. So I wouldn't say that Geraghty's musings don't have a chance to be valid.

Have the scoundrels gone belly up? Actually, they're richer than before. Democrats have bad ideas.

@30:

Who quoted Adam Smith:

"The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it.....

That was certainly true when Smith wrote.

But it is manifestly not true in America today, where the poor are obese, the rich strive to be "social x-rays", and even welfare recipients own cars, plasma TVs, A/C/and PCs.. 

A tax upon house-rents, therefore, would in general fall heaviest upon the rich; and in this sort of inequality there would not, perhaps, be anything very unreasonable. It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

So the conclusion Smith reached ---about "the rich" having an obligation to pay more in taxes for house-rents and that "this sort of inequality not...be[ing] very unreasonable --- is today a non sequitur.

If you want to make an argument that "the rich", which apparently includes all taxpayers, have an obligation to buy homes for "the poor" , well, you would sound just like Barney Frank and Maxine Waters, wouldn't you.

But you wouldn't sound like Adam Smith.

69 I must be confused, because the opening quote appears to me to be emphasizing properties of about free markets THAT WE LIKE TO EMPHASIZE. 1) "scoundrels go belly up" - what, are we now arguing that this is a bad point? 2) "the weakest get purged" - this is a bad thing when applied to people, but a good thing when talking about markets. It's creative destruction. 3) "people demand strict regulation of the money lenders" - yeah, ok, this is tougher, but ARE WE NOT PROPOSING REGULATORY CHANGES? "the money lenders to keep their greed in check" "government spends money on the real economy" Yeah, those last two are bullshit, but those are MOTIVES, not behavior. What, are we the fucking thought police now. We should want as many bad players to fail as possible - while still keeping the market functioning. IS there a way to do that? Some say yes, some say no. Kill the bailout. Delay it. Whatever. This bailout is arguably more dangerous than a depression to our liberty. Many people are taking that position, and are making reasonable arguments in doing so.

71 Obammameister Uberschwarza has a new way to avoid depression and put money into this economy:

Take away guns, melt them down for scrap money  and give the money to the homeless for crack and Thunderbird.

Instant economic stimulus.

Stunning, almost Messianic grasp of the issues scrolling across the teleprompter.

Let's all stand  and bow in the direction of  Chicago in obeisance to the Coming Lord of (Menthol) Kools and the leftie lay-up.

I posted that and as I explained in point 34 I got interrupted and hit post before I was finished.  The point I was going to make though was that playing Sean Hannity and breaking out the from each to each line in response to every economic argument as prooff of socialism doesn't really work given that the idea is also exhibited in Wealth of nations.

74 Is this any surprise. Look at Katrina. Bush tried for days before landfall to help NO with money and National Guard troops. Gov. Blanco refused to sign the request for help. Why? Because the Clowntons and their ex-FEMA head moved in and took over with the party agenda they discussed behind closed doors on the Hill. And people died. All to Blame Bush, Hate Bush. All to get a petty political issue. Scroom.
