Greed is God Ethos on Trial

Postby KeithE » Sun Apr 25, 2010 8:13 am

Goldman Trial Tests our National Soul
This article shows how unregulated, Laisse-Faire practices culminated in the 2008 meltdown. Real regulations and ACCOUNTABILITY of financial markets need to be enforced. I hope some legislation with teeth comes soon. The bailout has reduced loans and further padded the pockets of those accepting the bailout money.

Goldman-Sachs Emails
Obtained legally show that they knew what they were doing.

Hope & Pray you did NOT blow away on Saturday Night.

Meanwhile, in exciting Central Oklahoma, we are enjoying the sunshine and "wind comes sweeping down the planes".
I am now 8 days away from my Appendix removal operation. Yea -- my gut is working one end to the other ...

All I know about 'God Ethos' is that Jesus is Lord of my Life. God will make sure all the pieces fall together properly.

Good for you Ed and good luck on the Appendix removal.

Tornados hit Mississippi harder (10 deaths); had some damage in Albertville and Geraldine (I think the path would go north of Collinsville where Steve Fox lives).

Now back to our Laisse-Faire philosophies that brought down more of America than 9/11 did.

What is it that the appendix is supposed to do? I understand that we humans have this in common with wombats. :lol:

Regardless of who have appendices, been missing you at church.
