... Its human nature.

The key here is that shareholders are us!

Today we live in a corporatist world, strongly supported by us shareholders! Oh sure, many of us shareholders still believe in democracy - economic and political, and all that jaz, ... but we shareholders long ago sold out to big business - by buying it's shares, ... and eversince then, together with corporate executives, we continually demand more and more returns on our investment. And that is why, ... pretty well eversince forever (... until now, of course!), we shareholders - in chorus with CEOs, constantly been telling government to butt out, ...

I inserted "... until now, of course!", above, ... because the current situation is different - it includes an economic meltdown on major stock markets, ... and our own money is on the line. And so, ... cold hard cash from any government is no longer communism to us shareholders!

And so, thank you the Democrats in Congress, and to you Mr. Barack Obama! Yes, we shareholders all know that you made this bail-out scam your very own, ( clever!), ... but we also recognise that this plan's origin is the Bush White House kitchen, ... so our thanks go there, too!

Plutocratic Bush-Obama scam will serve us shareholders well, ... at least for a little while!

C, ... this Extortion Bill rocks!
