Damned if I Know: Sorry for the title's light profanity but I was just reviewing some past articles of Matt Taibbi the brilliant, creative writer for Rolling Stone who makes the explanation of the economic catastrophe of 2007 actually entertaining to read. 

This is a wonderful February 16, 2011 article entitled "Why Isn't Wall Street in Jail?"  Truthfully, it's fun, read it and either weep, be enraged or both.  Whatever you choose you should choose never to forget who REALLY landed us in this kettle of soup.  You can click here or on the link below!


I post the link to his articles which appear in Rolling Stone so that unlike most Americans your memory and my aging one are not short about the single most damaging historical rip off this country or the world has ever seen, in my opinion, worse than the Great Depression.  At least in the Great Depression of 1929 remedies were legislated to prevent another catastrophe only to be reversed 70 years later by a Congress in love with greed and Ayn Rand -- Alan Greenspan's secret love.  I wonder what Andrea Mitchell sees in that guy anyway.  I doubt she wed him for his looks!  Did I make that looksist comment?  I did.  Apologies but he reminds me of a Basset Hound.  I digress.

Our current economic kettle of rancid fish the "bipartisan" "American Jobs Act" about which Taibbi writes here is just another segment of the saga that goes on and on and on and on.  Most who read my posts and I who write them may not be around to see the utter catastrophe this brings on but your children, if you have them, probably will.  Ah, the good ole USof A what the hell happened to it?  Damned if I know.  I keep trying to figure it out.
