The Ownership Society.

Own property! Oh yeah, and don't forget to vote for the conservative free-market capitalists!

Interesting article by Naomi Klein here, who's right on the money (as usual). I hadn't thought about the connection between the so-called "Ownership Society" directive put forth by the Bushies and the growth-and-collapse of the subprime mortgage market. But hey, it turns out they pretty much set the whole thing up for failure, years ago.

Bush & Co: Lend these schmucks money. They will buy houses.

Lenders: Um... are you sure about—

Bush & Co: LEND THEM MONEY, GODDAMMIT! YOU CAN'T BUILD A PERMANENT MAJORITY IF YOU DON'T THROW "THE POORS" A HOPE OF A BONE NOW AND AGAIN!

Kanye West: George Bush hates Black people.

JTL: Sorta. George Bush hates poor people, and a lot of poor people are Black. So yeah, you're kinda right there. Now, get back to making music I'll never hear.

Lil Jon: Yeah!

JTL: I wasn't talking to you.
