And think.

A little off the subject but I would like a Telnaes ap for my I-phone. After all she earned a Pulitzer before Mark Fiori. His ap is good though

Is that a $Million Dollar Bill from that evil Wall Street sticking out of the Presidents breast pocket? Ann you must know how the deals are done?

Shocker. Another Ann Telnaes cartoon that parrots whatever position her beloved infallible leader is selling.

Is she also a Redskins cheerleader on Sundays?

Another Great One Ann! The wrecking of the economy was the outcome of Reaganomics of mindless deregulation, i.e. Sen. Gramm of ENRON fame and now this financial crisis. This coupled with Alan Greenspan's nonsense of markets regulating themselves was the "Perfect Storm" to affect this criminality on Wall Street. The only difference between Bernie Madoff and Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, etc. is simply the degree of criminality, they are all criminals!

Until we make basic changes in the way people feel their personal self worth, we will continue having this discussion. People work overtime to accumulate quickwealth at any cost and any means. We do little planning ahead and understanding what our efforts are doing to the environment, economy and society. Perhaps we should heed these people:
Thoreau-"That man is richest whose pleasures are cheapest"
Mohammad-"Our true wealth is the good we do in this world. None of us has faith unless we desire for our neighbors what we desire for ourselves".
Democritus-"Happiness resides not in possessions and not in gold, the feeling of happiness dwells in the soul".

When will President Obama learn that all this talk, talk, talk is about as productive as a mother with a screaming child in the supermarket saying, "Time Out! Time Out!"

Any farmer knows that when you have a mule that is too stubborn to work you treat it gently and with lots of care, but only after you get the attention of the mule by hitting it in the head with an axe handle. It's well past time that Mr. Obama brought out the axe handle and used it on Wall Street, the Banksters, and their friends in Congress.

lufrank, you assume correctly, but I disagree that these jerks are amoral - they are immoral, as in evil.

Listen folks, Alan Greenspan made the (odd) mistake in assuming that the titans and masters of the Wall Street universe can and would somehow police themselves and guard themselves against greed. Did Greenspan not watch Gordon Gecko in "Wall Street" say, "Greed is good; greed works." Or did he not hear Ivan Boeski (sp?) tell a bunch of college grads to "seek wealth"?

I stand with the President on this one!

I assume that one of those amoral jerks at the right is McConnell.
