Padre Mickey 'Splains
usury the Economy
Short version: We're all screwed 'cuza buncha idiots voted for the 'publicans!
Just a little longer version: So, the market went back up today, because the U.S. decided to be socialist and bail their sorry asses out. Does anyone still believe in the "invisible hand of the free market?" Does anyone still believe that "the markets will regulate themselves?"
Let's go over the basics: the reason we had regulations in the first place was because industry and the markets refuse to regulate themselves. They can not be trusted to regulate themselves. I'm not an economist; I'm a priest and historian, but I can look at things and realize that the markets and industry have absolutely no interest in self-regulation and will do what ever they can to make money when they think they can get away with it.
Aren't you glad that no one allowed George W. Bush to privatize Social Security? We'd all be in even deeper s**t than we are already!
Maybe God is punishing us for breaking God's rules. The Bible is quite clear that usury is wrong, yet our entire economy is based on usury. All of our investments are based on usury. Maybe all those who believe that every word of the Bible comes from God and is inerrant should reconsider their devotion to capitalism, 'cuz it looks like the Lord God Almighty has abandoned that particular economic system.
Oh, might I add that if you still support the Republican Party and its so-called Free Market policies, you are a fool or worse?!
I See You!
