Capitalist Profits, Socialist Losses

Shorter Megan: If a man borrows money he has a responsibility to pay it back. If a bank borrows money and it can't pay it back, the man should give him more money to make up for the money it lost, or the entire financial system will collapse.

Okay, it's not very short and she said the last part a long time ago, but you get the picture.

That's the government view I think.

Yeah, we're a government of, by and for Goldman Sachs, I think.

Typical addle-minded Megan. Does anyone have any idea what in the world she means when she talks about "moral obligations" regarding basic contract law? She went to business school. She should know that it's efficiency we're after, not "morality." Most people stop making the moral/immoral distinction when they get to college and see how futile the whole thing is, at least when it comes to public policy issues. But what's the basis of Megan's morality? Leviticus? Socrates? Ayn fucking Rand? I look forward to hearing more of Megan McMorality passing judgments, Solomon-like, about the morality of the business world, or I guess it just applies to homeowners. What a pompous twit.

All of this done with some stupid analogy about buying a grill. Is she incapable of writing objectively at all without every argument being backed up by some dumb personal anecdote?

Yeah, she's All About Megan. I think she has some vague notion of some Commandments somewhere that the little people are supposed to follow, but as we know, morality is optional to Megan.
