"For the American people are a very generous people and will forgive almost any weakness, with the possible exception of stupidity."Will Rogers
I think the tide may be turning on this one. The current state of our economy may have been caused by stupidity but I think it was mostly CORPORATE GREED and the feeling that the upper echelons of the business world and our government are above the rest of us peons and think they are above the law. They truly believe it.
I work in health care and we are now not even allowed to accept a box of donuts from our drug reps. Look at the legislative branch and they are accepting money and "campaign contributions" from PACS and corporations. Maybe it is time for us to demand that they be required to live under the same rules that are expected of us, the taxpaying citizens of this country. We are developing a tier system of rules and regulations.
I think the quote I like the best is from Thomas Jefferson:
"Dissent is the highest form of patriotism" Maybe it is time for dissention again.
