Friday the thirteenth was an unlucky day for three more banks and of course for taxpayers, costing us another billion Dollars. Technically the FDIC operates on premiums from insured banks and not public money but bankers don’t have their pay docked for this, they pass it on to us.
Everything stupid that corporations do gets paid for by us. Libertarians think every man is an island. Unless you live on a real island in a remote part of the world you can’t even begin to be independent. Of course with global warming, you had better have pontoons on your island.
