The United States of…France?

From Time:

This is the state of our great republic: We've nationalized the financial system, taking control from Wall Street bankers we no longer trust. We're about to quasi-nationalize the Detroit auto companies via massive loans because they're a source of American pride, and too many jobs — and votes — are at stake. Our Social Security system is going broke as we head for a future where too many retirees will be supported by too few workers. How long before we have national healthcare? Put it all together, and the America that emerges is a cartoonish version of the country most despised by red-meat red-state patriots: France. Only with worse food. 

LMAO re: worse food. That's for sure. But that is the only thing to laugh about in this article.

And the other thing that is NOT funny, thinking about this massive bailout, is the bailouts include keeping the heads of the company very, very rich, while the taxpayers take on $2000 per person to cover this mess.
