    Didn’t Delta leave a week earlier than Luann & Tiff, to attend a college far away? And isn’t Rosa still in Peru, with Gunther?
    .
    And, what was just said to Luann’s parents that seems to have them worried?

    “You know, Dolly, I always felt that money is like manure. It isn’t worth a thing unless it’s spread around, helping young things to grow!”

    “It’s kind of a lose-lose situation.”
    It is if all us sheep don’t keep tabs on what our (and THEIR) pols are doing.

    Harleyquinn: You don’t have to answer this, but I am genuinely curious. How old are you? (I’m 62)

    In full agreement. But what I posted is also true. I get much of my information from books, the Wall Street Journal, NY Times and magazines. One item I read last summer, in the WSJ, is that the financial houses keep coming up with new plans (schemes), and simply re-name many others which begin to come up under SEC scrutiny. The SEC simply does not have enough experienced personnel to keep up with Wall Street’s shenanigans, much less investigate them. Many are hired by the very ones whom they are investigating.
    .
    I am sure you recall the Lincoln Savings & Loan. As the SEC was getting reading to shut Keating down, Senator John Glenn & company browbeat the chief investigator into leaving Keating, an honest businessman (Who contributed generously to Glenn & the other four’s campaign coffers) alone. Within a year, thousands of retirees lost their incomes!
    .
    And, George W. Bush refused SEC efforts at investigating ENRON, his #1 campaign contributor, until it was too late, and Enron’s numerous sins were exposed!
    .
    And since I’m on the subject of GWB; During his 6th year in office, he instructed the IRS to perform fewer audits on corporations, and concentrate more on individuals. (You know who that means!) And, the news media, after the initial reports, meekly dropped the subject!

    And, many corporations, plus the huge financial houses of Wall Street are powerful enough to ignore SEC regulations. Congress has done NOTHING to rein in the packaging, trading and control of derivatives, which are being hawked even more than before the “recession”. Nor has Congress acted on “Flash trading”, which merely sucks a percentage of money out of every buying transaction. Wall Street is bigger and more powerful than ever, and doesn’t have to pay much attention to Janet.

    We have to organize, and put initiatives up for referendum, to completely overhaul the U.S. electioneering system. We must vote it in; obviously those affected will not pass any such legislation. Until we get the money out of the system, we have no hope. The Scotus is currently on their side.
    .
    ps: If we ever get that far, we must also establish very stiff fines/penalties agianst taking bribes, of any kind.

    If one knows where to read, one will find hints and clues about what U.S., Israeli and other nation’s agencies are doing to clandestinely disrupt & sabatoge Iran’s nuclear program. Just because the Pres hasn’t ordered bombing of the facilities doesn’t mean we are doing nothing.
