    Which is exactly why they need government oversight.

    What is the specific oversight you think is required?

    Anyone else want to give it a shot? I'd love for someone to explain how "Wall Street" can do anything, let alone steal people's money.
    You have answers? I doubt it.
    No surprise there....
    The powerful on Wall Street have screwed us all just a little, but "penetration however slight" is enough to show their greed, selfishness, and dishonesty.
    Their ethics are situational, depending most on the odds of being caught....

    How about someone looking over their collective shoulders and saying, "No, you may not ***** the public in order to improve the bottom line and make an outrageous bonus."

    People. Unles you own the company, don't surf porn on the company network. Jesus.

    Fing government slack-asses. Maybe if they had less job security they might act like the rest of the private sector.

    I have answers, yes, but they would be long and complex, unlike your populist sound bites and platitudes; but we're not talking about me right now - you're the one who is making assertions, which means the onus is on you to substantiate them.

    Why don't you stop squirming and obfuscating and just answer the damn question? Explain to me, specifically, who screwed us and how they did it. Are you incapable of this? Is that why you keep repeating your vague and meaningless sentiments about Wall Street greed and theft?

    Who are you talking about, specifically, how did they "**** the public", and what regulations would you impose in order to prevent said ****ing?

    I'd like specifics.

    This is so pathetic. You don't even know what you want or who you want it done to.

    Maybe you should actually do some research instead of just regurgitating inane populist platitudes about a strip of pavement in Manhattan.

    The collapse of the housing and financial sectors was a little more complex than "Wall Street stole our monies!!! Regulate them so they can't steal our monies anymore!!!"

    So lame...

    The housing crisis started this mess, you buffoon.

    Already said you should watch the news....you can't do that?
    Or is the evil media unfairly smearing the good christian folk on Wall Street?

    Instead of calling people stupid, why don't you share some of your super intellect and tell us how the media and the current administration are unfairly treating the financiers on Wall Street.

    And I did give you one specific, the elderly neighbor who got ripped off by his bank just so one of its employees could get a commission....
