    until they can get the banking laws, and the securities regulators on the side of the small investor, libertarians can go whistle.

    I always figured that social security was a tax that somehow the establishment would weasel away, lock box or not (Carlin influence).  So I saved (a little), and invested with E F Hutton. That first IRA  was a bust in the loose your lunch black Friday of 1983.  Ok. So then the advise was invest in your own company, you can keep your eye on it.  It got asset stripped in 1987.  So I bought real estate. You know how that worked out.  My husband got stock options in the high tech industry.  You know how that worked out. While we are not walking barefoot in the snow, a major medical problem could become a major financial problem.

    Until the financial industry is well regulated, we need the safety net.
