    John A. Allison took 3.1 billion in TARP loans on behalf of BB&T in 2008. He’s pure Randian. Cato will never be taken seriously with this bozo at the helm.Report

      Did not BBT pay back those TARP loans the second they were given approval by the Fed? Answer, yes in June 2009 about six months after they’d been compelled by the gov’t to take same.

      Interestingly Bush is blamed for running up a massive deficit his last year, largely due to TARP, but gets ZERO credit for the fact that 100% of the money HE gave out was repaid, with interest! Of course Obama spent 100% of the moneys paid back (and interest) and continued to blame Bush. Then he doubled down loaning TARP funds to car companies and other entities, and the US gov’t is about 50% in the red on.But we all love Bronco Bama round here doncha know.Report

    Murch is talking about “the conditions of shooting”. These or the conditions under which any creations are made may be of interest but should not dictate what is selected as the final piece for presentation by a gallery, theatre, publisher, etc. That Michaelangelo worked on his back is of interest but does not add or detract from his creation. Certainly the venue where anything is seen, read, or heard influences our appraisal of the work. That partially explains the attention garnered by the banal, attention seeking, desperate drivel from such as Jeff Koons.Report
