    And this is the same government some of you want to regulate health care.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Incompetent public sector employees? The hell you say...

    I know I'm not at the Secretary of State and the DMV for 2 hours a trip because of the great appetizers and lively jazz music.

    Just another case of government employees being government employees.

    Did I blame him for this? Or his partially for the overall state of affairs at the SEC?

    Thanks. Bush was pretty bad too. His reorientation of the SEC towards helping US firms remain competitive in the global financing market did not help. Rather then regulate, they went to a quasi-consulting form. Apparently, the SEC was so understaffed and so unfocused, they couldn't even get their own offices to cooperate.

    Considering how ***ked up the SEC was/is, I'm surprised we don't have MORE Madoff scams.

    I love how you guys use less than 1% of the SEC employees to say "ALL GOVERNMENT IS BAD" but when someone insinuates that Tea Partiers are right-wing lunatics who hate black people you freak out.

    All of it isn't bad, but most is. What scintilla of proof does anyone have to even suggest the tea-partiers are racist?

    This is why it's a bad idea to rely on government bureaucrats to control our lives.

    Yes, it is.

    Relying on Wall Street to do what is right for the country is a bad idea, too.

    Is there another alternative?
