Capitalism without the threat of bankruptcy is like Christianity without the threat of Hell.They were talking about the economic crisis and the stimulus package. It does really seem rather strange that a private company can run itself into destitution, and then be saved by the tax-payers in the nick of time.
Similarly, I do wonder why those pesky door-ringing Jehovah's Witnesses get anyone to join their sect when they can't threaten with Hell. They also only have room for 144,000 souls in Heaven. No comment.
