I don't, in principle, oppose intervention like positive liberty does (ht by the way), but they have a fair point here.Is the US going to bail out the car makers every year for the next century? because I don't think they will become profitable.
I suggest if there is a bailout the government should consider how to get the USA out of the car business - but I seriously doubt the Democrats will do that - and so I think the bailout will be a failure.

this really pisses me off
apparently the leaders of the world are insisting that Mugabe stand aside, and they are releasing press releases to that effect. What annoys me is that this is probably the same thing they have been saying for the last few years in private if not in public, and after that not working they are now unleashing their ultimate weapon - a piece of paper with some insults on it.
At the bottom the EU adds the note "by the way we are too far away to do anything about it we hope that the south African nations will do something" (fat chance)

If you don't plan on doing anything substantive please just dont say anything - otherwise its jsut using zimbabwae to get extra votes domestically by conning the public into thinking you are "active" on the issue.
