I shouldn't watch the news in the morning.

BBC news. 7:15 a.m.

"We don't have communism in this country. If you're not going to get paid, you have to deal with it. It's one of the features of this beautiful system we have called capitalism. You've had the pleasure, you have to take the pain."

Fuck off, you bald cunt.

I'll see if I can dig up a link later by which people can see just how offensive this twat is.

...except that that isn't true. Your CEO has had the pleasure, and now he's more likely than not buggered off to some tax-haven in the Caribbean until this all blows over.

Aint capitalism wonderful?

Precisely.

...bugger. The BBC news video feed doesn't have anything but live broadcast so I can't demonstrate how offensive this cunt really is.

I didn't get a name. You try thinking at that time of the morning with the alarm ringing in your ears.

What pleasure? Is this pain some reference to the possible recession we're currently facing?

I'm quite sure that living in a capitalist society has its benefits, but I wouldn't go as far as to describe the system as "beautiful". Capitalism is susceptible to corruption just like communism, and neither suits the needs of everyone. I'd say there is considerable evidence of need for moderation in capitalism, and of poor management which led to this situation. The poor management of course will never face the consequences, but the rest of us will have to deal with it.

P.S. save the planet, no more war etc.

Or mine. I'm here trying to make cheques appear by the power of will alone.

Well, will and shouting at developers.
