Thus, in times of recession, the government should freeze spending – just as you or I would tighten our family’s budget in the lean times.

Also, financial companies that received billions of dollars in taxpayer bailouts should continue paying hundreds of millions in bonuses to employees.  Just as you or I would borrow money from a neighbor to pay the mortgage when facing eviction, and then use the money to buy a new Porsche and spend all day washing and waxing it in the driveway before paying the neighbor back.  Hell, you might never pay the neighbor back.  And that would be totally cool with him because, capitalism. 

And if the dirty socialist bitches, well, you’ll just move to another town.  With your Porsche.  And then where would he be?
