    It fun to see the sheeple waking up.

    This economic meltdown is almost worth all the inconvenience just to see people finally getting it.

    well during great depression unemployment only got up to 25% or so.

    it would need to get up to 50% this time in order for people to really GET IT.

    and forget about old people losing their social security - that won't do shit. you need white men 18 to 24 years old starving to death - then something will happen.

    regarding prosecuting Bush administration Obama said we should look to the future instead. well as long as Americans think they have a future they will keep getting fucked. once they realize there ain't no future left they may finally want REVENGE and therefore take care of the SOURCE of the problem.

    if lets say a couple thousand politicians and bankers get burned alive on live TV that will quickly make students in Yale and Harvard change their majors from business, law and political science to medicine and engineering.

    politicians and bankers have all the incentive in the world to lie and cheat and no incentive whatsoever to be honest or responsible. it's not their fault that people don't properly "reward" them for their "service" to their country.
