When Socialists Don't Like Socialism

It's rare one would hear the cry from a Socialist - a Liberal or Progressive in other words - that Socialism is wrong. But this is just what we're hearing from many of those on The Left.

They don't like the Socialism that has put formerly quasi-government entities Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae completely under the umbrella of Uncle Sam. And they're right, I agree with them. Believe it or not.

But here's the funny part, the irony, the hypocrisy of it all. This is the same Left that would dampen their undershorts with glee if a Democrat Administration and Congress went ahead with the government taking control of all U.S. oil and energy companies.

So we have a case of the Socialists not liking and not supporting a plank of Socialism based on political ideology. Who knew...who knew...?
