    for pointing out the type error.  My bad!

    I myself find the Democratic Party too far to the right for my tastes.  I did vote for Obama in 2008, and am happy to see the White House become multi-racial, even as I think Obama is too conservative.  

    But I am not a registered democrat or a de facto democratic voter.

    I mention Mr. Madoff only because he is the only Wall St. tycoon to be prosecuted.  And yes, Madoff is not really a Wall St. guy in that he was a solo act and not connected with any Wall St. banks of investment firms.

    And I agree totally: the SEC is toothless, looked the other way, etc.  No doubt, because that's how the coporatocracy likes their oversight: toothless, ignoring the obvious, etc.
