    Let bankers and ball players have their free market, if the people can cyclically have violent revolutions in which we eat the rich.

    You can’t, Cabrobst. Americans are too afraid to be labeled pinko-commie-bastards. It’s in their blood.

    I suspect that Bolling is not open to the solution: a free market in which the government has no power to redistribute wealth from or to anyone, rich or poor.

    I suspect pschearer is not open to a different solution: collect all the wealth in the country every decade or so and randomly distribute it among the citizens.

    Fifty years is too long a wait, Radish. What about every, say, seventeen years?

    Ruben Bolling hits a couple nails on their heads here. Now that we bailed out these banks, &c., why can’t we stop the bonuses? This argument that they reward talent & keep it from leaving is nonsense. There ain’t so much talent, and where would it go?

    How quick people are to “redistribute” other’s property! By what right do you claim the power to take away what belongs to someone and give it to anyone else?

    When Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence he originally used British philosopher John Locke’s formulation of unalienable rights as “life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness”. But Benjamin Franklin, as a member of the subcommittee that had picked Jefferson to author the Declaration, had him remove the right of “property” out of concern that Southern states might attempt to use it to justify slavery.

    Without property rights, no other rights are possible. There is no freedom of the press if the government owns all the presses. There is no freedom of assembly if you must request permission to use a government-owned hall. And you have no right to your life if government can take everything you possess.

    Why is Obama taking the blame in this cartoon? The only bailout that’s happened while Obama’s been in office is the Bank of America one. Citigroup, Auto Industry, A.I.G, Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac, and Bear Stearns all happened in 2008.
