We gritted our teeth during the elections, as Republicans dragged your name through the mud. We held ourselves back when a pipe bomb was left in your mailbox. But we cannot wait forever. George Soros, just give us the order, and we will unleash hell!
So, after leading America’s desperate cities around by the nose for a year, an $800 billion company has at last selected the winners of the contest to have the right to shower it with taxpayer subsidies. If only there was a way to prevent this sort of thing from ever happening again...
