  •  I attend my local Democratic Party events (12+ / 0-)

    and I am a precinct official, and by now other attendees are tired of me saying it, and the shock of my bluntness has worn off - but what I've been saying for years is still true:

    We will not get a real economic recovery until Wall Street is obliterated.

    A conservative is a scab for the oligarchy.

      balance must be forced back the other way.

    •  Wal Mart vs. Main Street (4+ / 0-)

      It's been going on for decades.

      The more Democrats out in the streets protesting imperialism, the more folks we'll have eating home made meals here at home.

    •  Why Have No High-Level Executives Been Prosecuted? (3+ / 0-)

      Because a nation still is waiting - 5 years - 5 long years.

      Five years have passed since the onset of what is sometimes called the Great Recession. While the economy has slowly improved, there are still millions of Americans leading lives of quiet desperation: without jobs, without resources, without hope.
      Again, in the 1980s, the so-called savings-and-loan crisis, which again had some eerie parallels to more recent events, resulted in the successful criminal prosecution of more than eight hundred individuals, right up to Charles Keating. And again, the widespread accounting frauds of the 1990s, most vividly represented by Enron and WorldCom, led directly to the successful prosecution of such previously respected CEOs as Jeffrey Skilling and Bernie Ebbers.
      In striking contrast with these past prosecutions, not a single high-level executive has been successfully prosecuted in connection with the recent financial crisis, and given the fact that most of the relevant criminal provisions are governed by a five-year statute of limitations, it appears likely that none will be.

      For our fallen solders who come home from Afghanistan in a coffin to Dover, "God bless the cause for which they died."
