    No! Fully regulate. It's about fairness, equity and protecting citizen consumers. Again, the Pope is right. I understand the aggravation though.

    He didn't trash capitalism. You either have selective hearing or waste too much time listening to Rush.

    If you think he trashed capitalism, try reading the Gospel (then you might understand what he was trying to say).

    I must have missed the part where he bashed America. Unless of course you are saying capitalism and America are simply one and the same thing?

    They are definitely being shown the way how to...

    I don't think the Pope deserved this honor, yet. In my mind, up to this point he has given indications that he may deserve the honor in the coming year(s). This reminds me of Obama's Nobel award.

    I much prefer to see individuals honored for their deeds rather than their words.

    America is capitalism and capitalism is America.

    Well I don't think Jesus was much of a capitalist.
