Is anyone really surprised? Just like a drug dealer, gets you hooked and jacked up the price, or a corporate monopoly that drives out the competition with low rates then jacks the price, or government that promises to take care you and takes your liberty.

Londoners should push to have a Taxpayer-Funded underground free wi-fi

I'd bet if it was put to a vote the people would overwhelmingly support it... or just let one company have a monopoly.

When AIG went bust and met with the US Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke "created" 180 Million US Dollars out of thin air and lent it to them. But that's Capitalism for you...

That's not capitalism at all. That's Keynesian economics as applied to central banking. They've created a lot more than $180 million too! Read a little and you'll learn the difference.

THAT IS CAPITALISM
that is an inherent (unpredicted) EMERGENT PROPERTY OF CAPITALISM
you are witnissing it in every major western and european capitalist nation

to say that 'it is not capitalism' while it is happening in most every capitalist nation is unbelievably shamefully pathetically un-*******-believably ignorant.

take your head out of the sand and use that thing that between the ears

You can say whatever you like, but Capitalism would have meant the Banks would have run out of other peoples money anyway, the exact quote Thatcher said.

And didn't America fight to keep the Commies out? So why haven't they picked up the precious guns that they love so much and actually had the BALLS to use them on their own government? ala Civil War?

rmy above post to memad...etc applies to your ignorance as well. take your own advice and read a little... i suggest that you try reading from a non-corporate media source however... if that isn't your cup of tea then continue ignorantly forward with your embarassingly naive corporate programming... they paid for it, and you're spouting it out proudly... for shame

larkspur is correct, that is Keynesian economics, the basic tenet of which is in bad times the government should step up spending. For a true capitalist response, check out Iceland's reactions to it's banking crisis, which has worked much better than the socialist response of most of the capitalist countries.
