    Gotta love the selective outrage from the left at ENRON.

    They shared auditors with Fannie Mae until Bush asigned them a new one, ( Price Waterhouse Cooper ) who found their CEO, Franklin Raines had misreported BILLIONS so he could meet executive bonus targets.

    Fannie and Freddie did a exponential amount of damage as compared to ENRON, including poisoning the Markets with toxic Securities years before private MBSs encroached on their market share.

    By 2008 they held over 68% of all Low Quality, Sub-Prime, Alt-A, NINA and just generally crap loans, or Toxic MBSs backed by crap loans.

    By 2004 they held over 70% of all CountryWides crap loans while Angelo Mozilo was giving sweetheart mortgage deals to the likes of Chris Dodd.

    Hell in 2004 when their Regulator was warning Congress of their impending doom Democrats were sitting in front of Committee's chaired by Republicans swearing up and down the two mortgage giants were NOT in trouble.

    Over 5 TRILLION in toxic debt, and your using ENRON as the generic Corparate boogie man. Lol..

    Fannie and Freddie, run by corrupt Democrats with a mandate installed by Clintons 1995 Home Owners Stategy redefined Cronyism, Corruption and set the bar so High no private Corporation could ever touch their level of waste and fraud.

    When you guys go all anti-corporate on us are you trying to tell us Government is a better option ?

    My guess, is that even more stores will either relocate, or go out of business, because the higher wages will destroy their proft margin.

    Because once you are a 16 year old drop-out you've pretty much lost the "free" option, and you are unlikely to have access to the information or capital necessary to propel you on to the next. Entry level jobs are a critical way to take people who have already set themselves up to fail at life and put them back on an upward path.... but we keep making those entry level jobs harder to get for those who need access to them most.

    That is not at all the point, though.

    We don't think that way, but a lot of fringe right wingers still do.

    Which is not unlike telling the fat girl at the end of the bar that she should let you have your way with her because no good loving is coming her way lately. Of course, down the road, the results could be catastrophic. .... for both of you.

    Since a corporation is merely a group of individual investors, I would assume the you would agree unions should have no rights either...

    Unions already have rights, yet you think another group of individuals shouldn't. That's a bit odd...
