Just what we need, an other federal agency to fund at a time we have a 14.3 Trillion defecit. I guess Obama didn't hear it when Reagan said, "Government is too big, and spends too much."

Absolutely!

Securities and Exchange Commission that was supposed to monitor and police the finance and investing industry certainly earned their pay by preventing Madoff from doing any damage... oh, wait they ignored that.

Well, they spotted the problem with the home mortgage debacle before it got out of hand... oh, wait they ignored that one because Fanny and Freddie were at the heart of it and Fanny and Freddie are honest folks.

Well, we haven't had to bail out any banks or anything like that due to irresponsible, risky or otherwise illegal investment practices right?... oh, wait they failed on that one as well.

The SEC was pretty lousy at actually doing it's job, but they were apparently damn good at surfing the net for porn.

Maybe this new agency will ignore the porn and stick to youtube or icanhascheezeburger.com
