Maybe they should ask Obama for a Bail Out. I hope they "Donated" to his campaign.

They would be better off asking Bush. That way they would bail-out funds without oversight.

I admit, RD was void of violence, illicit sex, crime, deviancy and other disgusting rhetoric.

All RD offered was uplifting stories of people who cared about others, not themselves. Corny jokes, positive reinforcement, compassion toward others and ultimately, compassionate love.
It's no surprise that old junk journal is broke. I mean who believes in those virtues anyway?
Especially in American culture.

These are the consequence of years of hegemony over innocent poor people
looting them, killing them

No worse than fascist Bush. I am surprised you being from a fascist, dictator state, put together by America you do not see that right wing-left wings are both destructive parities.

Your referring to American hegemony I have to conclude.
I believe a global capitalistic dictatorship will emerge in most nations. Being a ruthless, Mussolini style dictatorship. Without mercy, pitiless, and will redefine barbaric.
Sadly, America will lead the charge. And being a puppet of banking cartels, America is evolving into such a state.
It's emerging now.
