Nah. Socialism? Just Wing-Dingers overreacting

This was last year at Congress' eleventy-jillionth raking of oil companies over the coals for high gas prices that Congress has had more impact on than the oil executives. But that's not the point. Watch Congress woman Maxine Waters, and listen to what she says.

"And guess what this liberal would be all about? ... This liberal would be all about socializing ... uh ... uh ... ... um ... would be about ... ... basically ... taking over, and the government running all of your companies." -- Rep Maxine Waters (D, CA)
Watch the look on her face when she realizes she's let the cat out of the bag, and tries hard to put it back. Wow. About 1:10 into the clip.

Isn't California the state whose social programs are running it into the ground, like New York City in the 1970's?

And yesterday, Goldman Sachs decided it wants to pay the $10 Billion of bailout money that it got from the government back -- because it now sees the move for what it was. A bid for federalization of the banking industry. Money from the federal government always comes with strings attached.

And that would include socialized uh ... uh ... um ... nationalized ... uh... "universal" ... health care.
