On the definition of socialism...

Texas Congressman Jeb Hensarling:

“My fear is that taxpayers will be left with the mother of all debts, the federal government becomes the lender and guarantor of last resort, and our nation finds itself on the slippery slope to socialism.”

To compare,

Shock Doctrine author and anti-globalization activist Naomi Klein:

"This is socialism for the rich. Look, if we're socializing things, let's nationalize something profitable. Let's go for Exxon. They're socializing junk!"

Mad slippery, yo!

My take: watch The Take.

Argentino, heal thyself.

I like this one, especially since Klein is all over the place hyping up that book with her things that make you go "hmmmm" definition of socialism.
