    Ms. Babba,

    What does that have to do with this discussion?

    The institutional flaws in our systems will be ignored by the Haves until the system completely breaks. And then they'll try to blame poor people again anyway. Historically we do not get off this path until we crash the plane into the mountain and there is simply no faith left to exploit.

    Last time this happened, following the Great Depression, America was well on its way to the left prior to WWII, and even afterwards, when Wallace was driven out of the VP's seat by machine politicians. People simply did not trust the con men anymore, so they couldn't fully rebuild their economy of debt.

    The con men are addicted to making money. If you win money, either gambling or through some scheme in the market, it lights up your brain exactly like cocaine. Isn't that interesting? If you are pulling that lever and ringing that cash register over on Wall St, you're not going to stop.

    You're just not. And nobody is going to make them stop.

    We need an intervention on Wall St, is what we need.
