      You just know all sorts of self-satisfied right-wingers bought themselves News Corp (NWS) stock thinking that they were supporting the cause AND investing in a sure thing.

      I don't like to see regular folks taking a financial beating, but I'm pretty sure you aren't going to find a single liberal losing a single penny on  a single NWS stock.

      As we liberals like to say. Heh!

        However, most "regular folks" don't own stock, and if they did they probably ought not have. People who invest in the stock market take a financial risk doing so and have no excuse not to know the rules going in.  That's why the rewards can be so plentiful if everything works out.  

        If everything doesn't work out...well, that is, after all, the more common result. The entire culture of "ownership society" created by the 90s bubble was complete bullshit from the get-go.  Everyone sees that now...sadly it's too late for those who got hosed in the market and lost their homes and retirement.
