Number of the Day

53%. The number "of American adults [who] believe capitalism is better than socialism. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 20% disagree and say socialism is better. Twenty-seven percent (27%) are not sure which is better."

I literally burst into laughter when I read that number. Fifty-fucking-three percent?! LOL. That sound you hear is the heads of millions of conservatives exploding.

As a personal fan of an economy balanced by both socialism and heavily-regulated capitalism, I would like to personally thank former President George W. Bush and his cabal of superfuck free-marketeers for so thoroughly discrediting capitalism and corporatism among the American populace that we might one day get an economy that isn't centered on the invisible hand giving most of us the finger.

Thank you, Mr. President.
