    It’s a slow simmering infection, sucking blood, spawned by the bankers and deregulation, not a bomb. (That would be too kind, and less profitable to the “banking” industry.)

    Ok, it’s now been 24 hours since you’ve been proven wrong so you may now forget all the evidence against you and go back to spouting off your “beliefs” again.
