Of Bailouts, HealthCare & Prostitution

BAIL'EM OUT!!! ????

Hell, back in 1990, the Government seized the Mustang Ranch brothel in Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law, tried to run it.

They failed and it closed.

Now, we are trusting the economy of our country, our banking system, our auto industry and possibly our health plans to the same nit-wits who couldn't make money running a whore house and selling whiskey?!

What are we thinking?

Interesting post. Thanks for the link about the Mustang Ranch.

Unfortunately, the link provides no support for your assertion that 1) the government was required by law to run the brothel, or 2) that the government tried to run it and failed. According to your source, the government auctioned off some assets and sold the rest. There is no indication whatsoever that the government tried to run the brothel and failed.

Sort of shoots down your own argument, doesn't it?

I have a great sense of humor. It's just that there is nothing in your previous posts that would lead me to believe you were joking with this one.
