In a sane world...

Sometimes Atrios says it so well that there's nothing to do but steal his post in its entirety:
The Way The World Doesn't Work

As Ireland lights another pile of money on fire, I'm reminded that another way to save the big banks and let rich assholes continue to receive absurd bonuses would have been to give people money to pay down their debts. Banks would have gotten their money, and people would have less debt. This would never happen because it would grossly unfair to help some people so we'll do the fair thing and just give money to rich assholes.
I'm pretty sure I have a post somewhere where I said just about this same thing back in 2008 about our Bankster bailout.
