    Re-read it until you get it / understand it. If that doesn't happen, I can't clarify it any more for you - so you'll have to walk away with the question unanswered.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    H'okay then. Thanks for the fruitful conversation I guess.

    Oh No, the board has been hijacked by phony Libertarians who think the Constitution only applies to white people!

    That as has been pointed out many times wasn't the only other alternative. A bankruptcy handled through the courts in the proper way, would not have severed the unions from GM. They might have had to renegotiate their contracts and some previous agreements would have been voided, but that's the way the system is suppose to work.

    Maybe Obama can find a way to resuscitate Studebaker, Packard, the Dussledorf, and so on, and let the unions run the the companies. That would create a lot of jobs. Of course they'd also need annual bail outs, but money doesn't seem to be a problem.

    Some of us do not stop there however. We want to see everyone do well so that we have a prosperous and sustainable society for all. Why that should make us "assclowns" is a mystery to me. Perhaps I should see if Lew Rockwell has written a column on the topic.
    I think what you are looking for in this context is more likely to be found in the Book of Exodus. Chapter 20, Verse 17.

    while we're at it, think of all the jobs lost and shipped overseas when the buggy industry collapsed.

    why, back when we were subsistence farmers, employment was 100%!!! think of how rich we could all be!!!

    This would be the Warren Buffet who hides his money from taxation by putting it in a trust, sells products whose worth goes up if tax rates do, and is agitating to increase taxes that he will never have to pay, yes? The same Warren Buffet who gobbles up failing bank stock and then lobbies the government to bail said bank out in order to make good to... Warren Buffet... that one, right?

    Right.

    Both hard working innovative Corporate types who started up entire industries from scratch, and eventually making work for thousands, without benefit of handouts from the American government.

    This must be a strange concept to the Wall Street laggards who don't appear to be worth the minimum wage they're moaning about.
