A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.
—Samuel Adams, 1779

So far we have watched the housing bust, the mf global bust, the CDO/CDS rip offs and watch world economies collapse without any arrests, regulatory action or any effective action as America is being ripped off in silence without a whimper!
I agree, Jim. I want a Wall Street (and congressional?) perp-walk.
