Is every banker that denies a business loan to a small startup business guilty of murder in his eyes for not allowing this person to be born?

3. Puts me in mind of Stephen Colbert

when he pondered that if corporations are people, and Bain Capital's business was to downsize and close corporations - wouldn't that make Romney a serial killer?

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/01/colbert-ad-airing-in-s-c-attacks-romney-for-being-a-serial-killer/

“Mitt Romney has a secret, As head of Bain Capital he bought companies, carved them up, and got rid of what he couldn’t use. If Mitt Romney really believes ‘corporations are people, my friend’ then Mitt Romney is a serial killer. He’s Mitt the Ripper.”

8. Following in that vein, denying a loan is BIRTH CONTROL, right?

10. And therefore, since the US government bailed out the banks

didn't we PAY FOR THEIR BIRTH CONTROL?!

Would Rushbo say that we should at least get to watch a video?!
