"[C]orporate welfare is just another manifestation of socialism often overlooked by so-called Conservatives"

So true. In this country we have socialism for the wealthy and capitalism for everyone else. Case in point: The bank bailouts of 2008-9 and the failure to do squat for underwater homeowners who lost their homes.

^^^ the majority of those owners couldn’t afford those loans to begin with so....... the banks got greedy and gave out loans they shouldn’t have putting everybody else’s money at risk so the gubmint had to cover them. It was that or everybody lost.

That's nice. Corporate welfare for millionaires just in time for the rest of us to get an increase in property taxes from the county.
