I was gripped by the irony of the moment. Senators were berating the banker because his company lost 2 billion dollars. His company has 2 trillion dollars of assets. He lost about one tenth of one percent of his company's gross revenues. In the mean time, the Senators are responsible for the USA losing 1.5 Trillion dollars each year. This is a about about a 40% loss. 2 tenths of one percent vs. 400 tenths of one percent. If the Senators could improve their performance 200 fold, they would be equal to the guy they are grilling. THEY want to regulate HIM. This wouldn't even happen in a Monty Python skit. Or maybe it would. It shouldn't happen in "The Greatest Deliberative Body" on the planet, should it? Who votes for these pompous circus clowns?
