    Re: Administration: Rein in pay in US private sector

    ^^So telling the government that it can't talk to business is fascist, and actually talking to the government is fascist.

    Everything is fascist!

    I see you fail at accepting the idea of personal responsibility. Hoover didn't cause it, the companies that took his advice were to blame.
    See, there's a little bit of something called pressure when the president is telling you to do something.

    If you can't take the heat get out of the kitchen. The President is not a king, and if others don't have the balls to stand up for what they believe in that is THEIR FAULT.

    ALL PUBLICLY HELD COMPANIES.

    Not just TARP-babies.

    You need to learn what the word "fascist" means.

    So we shouldn't complain until after he ruins us?

    If you don't know the difference between telling and suggesting, this conversation is hopeless. LEARN THE DIFFERENCE, then come back.

    You mean you're going to wait until it's too late, then refuse to take the shower?
