But ponder this: The same week our greed-averse president sends a fundraising letter demonizing the Koch brothers -- dubious self-starters and risk takers who employ about 70,000 people without bailouts and hand out billions in noncoerced charity -- he is busy celebrating policy that forces taxpayers to be their brother's keeper, even though their brother continues to make terrible decisions free of consequence.

Now, the auto bailouts began under President George W. Bush -- abandoning free market principles to save the free market since 2001 -- but Obama seems to believe that pumping money into failure is an economic starter kit. Some unpatriotic rube might even ask: If bailouts can really save jobs, grow the economy and cost taxpayers absolutely nothing, why not bail out more industries -- or every industry? Why not bail out every corporation that's headed in the wrong direction?

What, you don't care about your brothers and sisters?
