    Number one I made no reference to President Obama.

    Yes, hip hip hooray that Elizabeth Warren got elected showing how seriously "some of us" are taking the corruption still going on in the financial world.

    But why should it take "years and many concerned citizens who keep their eye on the ball and keep calling for accountability and justice" to clean up the financial world?

    Why should we have to beg Democrats already in office to do their jobs? There is a Democratic Attorney General of the United States. There is a Democratic Attorney General of the State of New York. There are Democratic Attorneys General in many of the states most impacted by the financial and mortgage swindles. There are USAs in every state and a bunch of them are Democrats and appointed by Democrats.

    Exactly how many years before we get Democrats that the people of the US can depend on to look out for their interests and enforce the Rule of Law? I'd like your estimate.

      Because the corruption that's at the heart of this discussion is deeply entrenched. And, because it involves money and power, it's like a metatasized cancer in the late stages. It will take a miracle cure to undo do it.

      You didn't ask me, of course, but I say that you and I will have walked off to be with our ancestors before the Democrats will be looking out for our interests, even if you are in your twenties.

      I'm in my seventies, and this has been going on, in my awareness, for at least 50 years.

      You meet them halfway with love, peace, and persuasion ~ And expect them to rise for the occasion...
