Heard this on the radio.... I thought it was hilarious. I don't agree with everything he says, but I'd say it's 3/4 accurate to what I've witnessed when people graduate college and get out into the real world.

BTW the real world requires sacrifice. I don't have cable TV. I don't have a fancy smartphone, but instead an old thing that only costs me $5 a month. I do have high-speed internet but it's only the slow $15 a month service. My computer is almost ten years old, my laptop is an old Pentium 3 model, and there's no such thing as a flat screen TV in my house.

POINT: Yes I'm angry that the idiots in Congress swiped 700 billion for the TARP bailout and gave it to the bankers, but other than that one annoying event, I don't think our society is that bad. Capitalists can be destroyed with the simple act of saying "no" when they try to sell their products (and then they'll go bankrut like happened with Circuit Shitty). I don't want to tear-down capitalism like the Dude who posted "The end of capitalism".

You can criticize the bailout all you want, and it might not have been the best use of money, but time was short and the alternative was a worldwide depression, so suck it up and shut up.

No I will not shutup.

Iceland didn't bail-out their banks in 2008, so they collapsed, the junk bonds were cleaned-out, and now they are recovering. The U.S. should have done the same. We haven't avoided the crash... we haven't fixed the problem. Only postponed it because the banks are still carrying all those bad derivatives.

Right now the # of derivatives is at the same level as August 2008. Another crash is coming.
