    "Greed is NOT good". We learned that from the CDO & derivatives orgy of the aughts. Thank you Mr. Douglas for your public service:

    I'm quietly confident that most Americans are smart enough to work out that greed is not good all by themselves. They are unlikely to need some greedy rich fucking actor telling them what to think.

    To quote Billy Crystal "So tonight, enjoy yourselves because nothing can take the sting of the world’s economic problems like watching millionaires present each other with golden statues." Fucking greedy bastards telling others not to be greedy is vaguely funny.

    So is Mr. Douglas going to cut a check to the Treasury for all the after tax money he made from starring in that movie??

    judging from the previous posts, there is a high probability that they are fans of Fabrice Tourre. ;)
