Yes, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, every now and then one of those criminals lets something slip, tells us how they really feel. In this case? Charlie Munger, that great hypocrite Warren Buffett's business partner, who had this to say about the bail-outs...
“You should thank God” for bank bailouts, Munger said [...] at the University of Michigan on Sept. 14, according to a video posted on the Internet. “Now, if you talk about bailouts for everybody else, there comes a place where if you just start bailing out all the individuals instead of telling them to adapt, the culture dies.”Yes. That culture. His culture. The culture of corporate criminal behaviour. Because that culture of corporate communism, did you know that, boys and girls? That culture preserves our civilisation!
As for everybody else?
“There’s danger in just shoveling out money to people who say, ‘My life is a little harder than it used to be,’” Munger said at the event. “At a certain place you’ve got to say to the people, ‘Suck it in and cope, buddy. Suck it in and cope.’”That's right. Because normal people, they are not too big to fail, right, you entitled motherfucker? As long as you got yours, fuck everybody else. Like those almost 45 million people in the United States who are now officially poor. Like the almost 50 million people who cannot afford to eat healthily. And by the way, you retard, don't bring up Hitler in a conversation that you know nothing about. It wasn't the decline of the financial system in Germany that was one of the main contributors to Hitler's rise.
It was the fact that there were enough people unemployed and so poor that they no longer saw anything that they could lose to have that democratic system reach the brink of collapse.
Oh, wait... we are heading that way right about now.
The financial system, the gutter scum that was called the "elite" in Germany, the Krupps and the Thyssens and the rest of the criminal gangs, they were doing fine, or have you never looked at how e.g. Berlin was one of the major centres of decadence during those times? If you had money, that is, it was the place to be!
And who, yes, let us ask who exactly signed a statement designed to lift Hitler into the chancellory in November 1932?
Why, yes! The German Banking and Industrial "Elite"!
Let us put together a few names, shall we?
... and so on and so on... and while it is largely seen today as a failure (since Hindenburg really, really didn't like Hitler and gave the job to Schleicher instead, but Adolf got the job on in January 30, 1933, and we all know that date, now, don't we?), it shows just who exactly in terms of class really, really wanted good ole Adolf to take charge. Because, remember boys and girls, Hitler only had 33.1 percent of the votes in the November 6, 1932 election. That's right. A third of the voting public at that point voted for the Nazis, despite all of the bullying, the SA roaming the streets and people fearing the Nazis at that point (but hey, how much can change if you only have a terrorist fly a plane into a building, uh, wait, yes, burn down parliament..right?)

Never read a history book to the end?
No. No, apparently you didn't.
But hey, know something? There's also another historical reference that you are not quite aware of, it seems. Let me enlighten you. Here's that particular phrase for you, Charlie, my boy.
"Let them eat cake."
Remember that one?
I hope you will some day meet the same fate as the one who said that.
