  •  Today's finance industry can not bear... (11+ / 0-)

    to see a pot of money they can't get their hands into to churn and steal from.

    We need guards to keep the thieves from the doors.

    •  You hit that nail squarely on the head !! (0+ / 0-)

      And it's not just the finance industry - it can happen with local government, too.      A small city near me kept trying to get to the monies 'held' for future necessary replacement of the city sewage treatment plant, which was mandated by law I believe. They didn't care about the future, they wanted to use it to cover current fiscal problems caused by stupidity & shortsightedness.

      These local governrnents see tax dollars as opportunities for misuse & the local power to hire friends & relatives. Any public service is just a byproduct.

      There are plenty of examples for the need for federal oversight - small, local governments are often the most corrupt. Another reason the GOP blather over 'state's rights' scares the hell out of me...
      as did their 'Shrub' era push to privatize Social Security...

      Something that doesn't make good sense, makes bad sense. That means someone is being deliberately hurtful & selfish. Look for motives behind actions & words.
