DJan said...

Ditto with Brian. It's so awful! I feel so helpless to do anything about this.

That's disgusting.

We let them get away with this. We do not force our politicians to reign this behaviour in. We haven't demanded the perps of the financial debacle be punished. Bernie Madoff was a "token". He is representative of so many more who go unpunished.

Ponzi schemes and high risk junk bonds; it's all the same to me.

I agree with Brian and DJan. It is such a helpless, horrible feeling.
