It’s funny, don’t you think?

It’s funny, but has it struck anyone how amazing it is that in capitalism’s latest crisis, governments can suddenly find billions, nay, trillions of dollars to buy out the ailing banks? All with taxpayers’ money of course.

Yet isn’t strange how when nurses, firefighters, teachers, et al, are forced to strike for more pay and decent conditions there’s no money in the coffers? Or when repeated calls are made to eradicate child poverty and homelessness there’s no spare cash available?

Like I said, funny that...
