Conflicts of interest ...

Running around with his hair on fire now, seems his only motivation was to save his pals from ruin. Just like Bush energy policy, Bush monetary policy was enforced by an insider.

Back in 2000, when Hank Paulson was CEO of Goldman Sachs, he testified in front of the Security and Exchange Commission. Among other things, he lobbied the SEC to enact a "change to self-regulation" for Wall Street. He also urged them to change the "net capital rule" which governed the amount of leverage investment banks could use. The net capital rule was indeed changed in 2004, and is now blamed for the investment banks' collapse. [my ems]


And people are surprised when McLame loads his campaign staff up with lobbyists? It's the 'Republican Way'; let people with a vested interest make the rules. As long as corporations are given a superior voice over the constituency in policy making we'll keep having fiascoes like the Wall St. meltdown and the Enron mess in California.

It amazes me, after all we know, that 30% of our population still support this gang of thieves and 40-odd percent are in the tank for McCain.

Great thanks to Cernig for the link.

Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
