WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU DUG A DITCH, BABY? Reader Jim Robinette writes: “Why oh why has no one picked up Oingo Boingo’s ‘Capitalism‘ as the counter anthem to this idiocy?! The lyrics could not be more on point.” Well, we mentioned it before. But here you go again.
Herman Cain couldn’t have said it better.

The West once was capitalist, but today it is a corporatist juggernaut in it’s death throes, whereby corporations and banks control the government in their favor, inevitably leading to corruption and decline. This is not capitalism. . . . The Occupiers in, at last count, 147 cities nationwide, protest a system that has been overtaken by corporations that are already in bed with the government anyway. If they have a problem with wealth, they should aim their frustrations at a government that sucked away trillions in tax-payer money for sinfully corrupt banks. Capitalism is not the enemy here, excessive government control and regulations is.” No, and our problems stem from too much corporatism, not too much capitalism. There’s nothing “capitalist” about Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and TARP. Or Goldman, Sachs for that matter . . . .
