Meanwhile GM’s Chevy has paid $560 million (LA Times) to make Manchester United’s soccer jerseys look ridiculous, not to mention who knows how much more festooning NASCAR cars. And, of course, GM execs still take home a kazillion times more than the the people actually making and selling the cars.

Yet, many are still marching around calling our system “free market capitalism” and insisting we don’t have funds for basic human needs. Welcome to the jungle.
