"Socialism, communism, whatever you want to call it, is never the answer." - Hank Steinbrenner, who received $1,200,000,000 Billion Dollars from the taxpayers of the City and State of New York to pay for the building of his baseball stadium.Here's how Capitalism works in America. When a "private" business wants huge wads of taxpayer "relief" to finance some project, the discussion becomes a lofty, Grandiose debate on Utilitarian Principles and the greatest good for the greatest number; Highlighting the vast network of ancillary benefits to businesses, the community, the neighborhood, and the government.
Therefore, it's only good and proper the Rich receive help. Also this is not Socialism. But, under Vulture Capitalism when were are talking about helping poor people with food assistance? Well, then the howls of lazy moochers and the mean-spirited tired cliche of 'feeding wild animals makes them too dependent' are trotted out. Also this is Socialism.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker announced his plan to enact Socialism in Wisconsin. It's just that like all Republicans, Scott Walker believes in taking money from the Working Class and giving it to the Plutocracy. Socialism for the Rich and Corporations and Cut-Throat Capitalism for the Poor is the motto of the Modern Republican Party.
After slashing $250 million from the Wisconsin budget for Education, Scott Walker brazenly turned around, and in a massive Pay-to-Play Scam, gave Millionaires (who contributed vast amounts of money to his two election campaigns, recall fight, and Presidential Super PAC) hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to pay for their new Milwaukee Bucks Basketball Stadium.
Scott Walker's entire governorship has been the forcible theft of Public Lands, Resources, and Monies for redistribution upwards to the Rich. That he feels free to do this so brazenly during the run-up to the 2016 Republican Nomination shows, that Walker would steal Billions from the American people writ large and transfer those monies up to the Plutocracy using the Awesome Power of the Federal Government.
