    We need to get rid of more of those pesky regulations that are strangling businesses.

    You do understand that is a conservative statement!?!

    the controls were done after the 30’s to prevent that sort of
    thing…they were removed and now look at the situation…the
    unmitigated greed and lack of ethics needs to be controled

    You do understand sarcasm, don’t you?!?! (Hint: the word “pesky” is often a tip-off.)

    Boring or not, it needs to be prosecuted. If you want an account that won’t put you to sleep, read Matt Taibbi’s series of articles in Rolling Stone.

    Time and again it’s demonstrated that the problem is not the lack of regulations but rather the lack of enforcement of regulations. The management levels of the regulating bodies always come from the industries they are supposed to be policing, and then return to those industries when their tenure at management is up. The mid- and lower levels of the regulators uncover mischief going on and the upper levels tell them to shut up or get fired, or worse. A case in point is the Madoff Ponzi scheme. It was apparently obvious to everyone that something was up, but no one would do anything about it. If you want to stop this nonsense, come up with a way to stop this unholy alliance between government and big business.

    Well said. There’s way too much revolving door behavior / conflict of interest going on. It’s endemic. Private profit>>public ’enforcement’>>back to private profit>>back to public ‘enforcement’ . . .

    Ghandi said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

    How does one start?

    I was gonna say something to the effect that there couldn’t be a progressive (i.e., Commie) version of the Tea Party due to the fundamental difference between the people in the two camps, but then Theo Poser said it better, although less politely. I’ll go with his/her/its comment.

    How many Tea Party people, do you suppose, receive money from the government?
