    Continued corruption, and stimulous spending used at giving away money to people with full bank accounts..

    Capitalism just works like a rusty new engine.

    Corporate capitalism and the mixing of the new aristocracy and government isn't a good thing. The whole point of bailouts and stimulus wasn't for the regular folk. It was so the government could get their rich friends making money again. Once Wallstreet and the banks turn around, the government will care very little for anything else.

    The shame is that the workers are paying for the people who work, to steal our money, to keep their job stealing our money.

    The banks cannot account for the money they "kept safe" for us, so now they steal more from us with the help of the government to try to cover it up.

    Shame is that bad business models keep rolling and are not forced into bankrupcy like should naturally occur in real capitalism, to be replaced by better businesses.
