    Like a lot of things - if you have the correct connections you don't have to suffer for being stupid.

    I liken it to the SF-Joe Montana syndrome, SF was cheating by offering personal services contracts through the DeBartolo construction empire to avoid the salary cap. Yet many think these teams were wonderful. & they were, but they were cheating!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I saw where one big institution borrowed 15 billion from the Ben Ber-Nank and 'only' had to pledge 185 billion face value collateral I can hear the conversation now..."Uh, Mr. Chairman we need to borrow 15 billion NOW but the only collateral we can pledge is this toxic pile of diarrhea" Aint central banking great!!! Aint GAAP accounting great!!! I'm sure once that loan was paid back the toxic diarrhea pile of collateral now sits on this co's books at only 15 billion. Right?

    And a big congratulations to President Jobs Obama for his stellar jobs report this morning where the economy grew by a whopping 39,000 jobs. That's hope and change for sure. If spread out evenly among our 57 states that's 684 jobs for each state! Man, we're cruising now.

    We live in Cuba now.

    The crooks (Wall St) wrote the laws and were able to steal from taxpayers legally. Instead of prosecuting the thieves, we let them walk with billions of our money! Wall St has been in control since the Robert Reich days and have created one scam after the next and the BS reform we got several months ago only sets up another financial meltdown.
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    Are you sure you didn't mix this guy up with a different Robert?

    A guy that worked for Citi after government perhaps?

    Who was the R. R. that Clinton put in charge of the Fed that worked for Goldman Sachs?
    Rick Rubin maybe?

    You've given me a great idea. We all know that Troy Landry and all the other hard working swamp people are experts are locating, trapping and disposing of gators. Why not give these folks permits to do the same thing with keynesians, wall street crooks and central bankers.

    Choot choot da keynesians!

    Choot choot da wall street crooks!

    Choot choot da central bankers!

    We live in Cuba now.

    Yup, the supply siders are doing a great job of taking us back to the gilded age. Lets keep it going.
