    These payouts just illustrate the stunning "success" of Capitalism!

     

    Thank goodness we don't have SOCIALISM here where the Government regulates CAPITALISM to prevent spectacular failures.

     

    Capitalists are perfectly capable of MASSIVE FAILURE all on their own.

     

    They don't need the Gum'mints help!
