  •  Esp. when "fraud" doesn't mean "fraud". (4+ / 0-)

    What the diarist (or the other persons the diarist quotes as gospel) call a fraud isn't an intent to decieve.  Tt's capitalism.  And unlike outlawing or prosecuting actual fraud, the "solution" would be some other system that the diarist can't or won't articulate.

    So his diaries are a mishmash of tweaks, like no more banks too big to fail, with a general indictment of our present free market system, with D&G prognostication.  You want to call your congressman and free associate like that, go ahea.

    MY APOLOGIES IF THIS PARTICULAR COMMENT DIDN'T ADDRESS A SUBJECT YOU CONSIDER MORE IMPORTANT.

      From Argentina to Japan, Russia Greece, United Kingdom it indicted itself everyday and the solutions of its most ardent defenders become thinner and thinner with each passing crisis.

      The real solution to fixing capitalism is to get people who think like you out of it.

      Practically speaking, Augustus Caesar was much better than Julius Caesar. Morally? Not so much. -neroden
