Whaaa's Up Wall Street?

Perhaps the investment banking debacle will force the political chatter off-stage for awhile until it gets digested by the Chattering Masses on NonsenseNews. Reagan's trickle-down economic theories (voodoo economics) that have dominated markets & regulations for 28 yrs. are much like Rev. Wright's "chickens coming home to roost."

McCain's good buddy, Phil 'Nation of Whiners' Gramm of TX led the Republicans to sponsor & pass the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999. It passed on a vote of 54 (GOP) to 44 (Dem) w/2 present. [S. 900 An Act to enhance competition in the financial services industry by providing a prudential framework for the affiliation of banks, securities firms, and other financial service providers, and for other purposes. Ck out the Roll Call Votes]

These "trickle down" economic policies were bound to get on that "free market" slippery slope leading to this mortgage/derivative debacle. So, now Wall Street's 'Welfare Kings' cry, "HELP US!" - maybe we do need regulatory babysitters after all.

McCain has indicated he will appoint Phil Gramm as Treasury Secretary! BIG reason to support Obama - smarts, resilience & demeanor attracts the best brains in the country to work with him.
