    Can our country afford to have investments in America disappear due to Obama's policies?

    Wall St. is going to embrace whoever they think is going to give them the most cheese, no different than an inner city welfare recipient.

    It's becoming more difficult to socialize the risk.

    They want the rewards to go untouched but want the risks to be underwritten by fools like you and me.

    I don't see the Fed, Fannie/Freddie, friends of Goldman Sachs and gubmint employee unions having any problems getting their risks and losses socialized.

    The raping of Chrysler Senior Secured Creditors, the extortion of BP, the takeover of the US auto industry, the takeover of US HealthCare were all just blips, but the Goldman suit! Wow! That's serious!

    Only one big problem....they are companies that provide tons of JOBS...you would rather a chinaman or indian take them?

    Also....they are companies that millions of Americans invest in.....should we start investing in China or India instead?
