I think it's a big juicy, hugely greased palm.

This old song is so mouldy I'm surprised anyone still uses it, or thinks anyone will listen or sing along.

With so many failing businesses getting government handouts measured in the $billions, this could be true right now.

Businesses used to compete for $millions in sales, or $millions in investor capital or $millions in venture capital money.

Why work so hard to earn $millions when you can fail and get $billions?

1) Hire lots of employees that you cannot afford to pay 2) Buy lots of expensive tools that are prone to failure to use in running your business (i.e. Microsoft Windows ) 3) Seek Bailout from federal government 4) Retire and become a lobbyist

You see, if you actually use stable and secure tools like GNU/Linux, this might result in savings that could cost you $billions in bailout dollars.

Don't take that risk! Use Windows to ensure your failure.

Quoting:3) Seek Bailout from federal government

Except with the LSE, it was a 'Bail In" and it Bangalore / Linux and not the feds who came to the rescue.
