Yeah, and there is one way to make that happen, and it means putting some regulation back in place. Wall street has clearly demonstrated that these crooks can't be trusted to keep their fingers out of the cookie jar. We have had con artists in place in the stock market for years.
The next time a poiltician starts making noise about how "unamerican" it is to regulate business, we can think of this boondoggle.
Now maybe we can start to think about regulating health care and the oil industry who are also so out of control that service to humanity is the last thing on their mind.
It's beginning to look like Marx was right.

I predict former Governor Blagojevich will be the next head of Wall Street. He's qualified. He's corrupt and greedy. He'll give himself a bonus.

It's bad when Wall Street has less respect than Rodney Dangerfield!!!

Try putting someone Honest in there. Oh, I forgot...that's not a legitimate qualification.

We don't have to worry about terrorists destroying our country. The greed that is in the banking industry and Wall Street will beat them to it.

Forget about the camel/sheep and/or goat lovers in the Middle-east. Forget about the Hispanics who come here illegally and drain our public services dry. Forget about Tzar Wannabe Putin. Foprget about OPEC's stranglehold on our energy needs. If you want to know the REAL dangers to America - look within America. The pillage and plunder of America by Americans! Whether Wall Street, Wal-Mart, Congress and the rest of the perversely self-serving political hacks, it's 'We'- you know 'The People...' who either perform these criminal acts and/or allow them to continue to be performed.
'A more perfect Union'- my &ss.
The oil companies rape - really rape and plunder. The politicans {Burris, Blago, Ryan, Stevens and countless others lie, facliate the thefts by other, steal themselves and are soundrels of the lowest order. Yet,'We The People...' sit on our thumbs and allow this to continue!
Just what's it going to take for Americans to take up arms and to take back America - for Americans? I'm ready - how about you?
"... to preserve and protect the constitution of the United States from all enemies, both foreign or domestic.' Well, I'd say that it's a given that most of those who are presently in office have violated that oath, committed high-treason and need to be put up against a wall and shot. Let's meet at the baricades, it's well past time to storm the Bastille - lock 'n load, we've political hacks to go a-hunt'n for! It's open season, no limit - no questions asked. If they're a politican - they're PRESUMED to be guilty!
