"Wall Street II Is The New Birth Of A Nation"

I can't wait for the Newsroom epsiode on the AIG CEO :
The uproar over bonuses “was intended to stir public anger, to get everybody out there with their pitchforks and their hangman nooses, and all that — sort of like what we did in the Deep South [decades ago]. And I think it was just as bad and just as wrong.”:
"Just as bad".

But hey, if we can't sort out the damage these worthless cocktrumpets and their political gimps with a fix that will fit on a fortune cookie, clearly we're just not being serious enough. Clearly we want to replace capitalism with unicorns and drum circles.

There is little in this world more contemptible and insidious than the idea that the more someone cares, the less they should be respected, and that the more things clearly needs to be fixed, the more laughable it is to try doing anything.
