Would You Want The Carlyle Group To Take Over Your Nursing Home?

You know the Carlyle Group, an international investment club for yacht owners that exists so scoundrels from across the globe can break bread while discussing ways to further enrich themselves at the expense of 99.75% of the world's people.

Prominent Carlylers have included members of the Bush and bin Laden families. That's about all you need to know.

So shockingly, members of the SEIU are not all that happy about The Carlyle Group's involving itself in the operation of nursing homes, and are forwarding the crazy notion that patient care should rank at least somewhere in the priority range of how many Mercedes your average Carlyler can pack into their 18-car garage.

Let's just say that the Carlyle Group's moving beyond their usual interests, providing a pension plan for despots and producing the weaponry of war, is surely a sign of the apocalypse.
