I've been worrying about this for a while but the Director of National Intelligence Blair at least is highlighting the problem. Putting aside the moral and ethical issues of fleecing Americans and the world for all their cash, the people involved in the financial crisis have made things a whole lot less safe. There were already projections of wars for land, water, food, and other natural resources. Now because the U. S. has destabilized the global economy, instability and terrorism will rise.

These people are so stupid it's unbelievable. Even by their own warped standards they should have known better. Will you be able to pry natural resources out of third world countries? Not if a rabidly anti-American government is elected or wars have flared up in once stable regions. Will you be able to sell your products as you once did? Not if rampant protectionism rises at home and abroad and jobs continue to degrade.

These companies need to have their executive ranks shredded. The "trickle down" of wealth has turned into a torrent of bad advice, unstable economy, and severely weakened American power/prestige/ability to be a positive force in the world.

Be well.

Hey lawyer folks! What do you think of this story? I wonder why only Illinois, New Mexico and North Carolina require juveniles to have representation when they appear before judges. Would requiring juveniles in other states to have representation overwhelm the system? Not enough public defenders? Do juveniles get better deals generally when they waive counsel?

Oh and those judges are pretty damn low. Profiteering off of juvenile sentences? It's like a white collar version of a child sweatshop.

Be well.
