    I ask because we are seeing here a dynamic created where the Bigger Corpos are getting, the more legislation falls in their favor. See Bail-Outs, for an example. See watered down Wall Street reform (with 2,000 Banking Lobbyists recently invading Washington right before), for an example.

    You cannot reconcile it, but you can write it all off as original sin playing out in very complex ways in a very complex society.

    Not very comforting, I admit, but at least that explanation makes sense.

    Maybe I've been living in la-la land, but the more I learn the less the information makes any sense at all.

    I'm sure someone feels me on thaT.

    I try my best to ask the right questions, but typically they're the ones without any answers.

    If this thread were a sneaker, it would be New Balance.

    If this thread was a car-part, it would be the break-pedal censor on a Toyota.
