Dysfunctional commoners who are addicted to gambling, drugs, tobacco,irresponsible sex, soap operas,irrational religious nonsense, rejecting the Puritan Ethics that streghthened our society, and failed government schools play no part? 9/11/ The CRA?The political hijacking of Fannie and Freddie? The failure of regulators ( admitedly largely a Republican failure ) The repeal of Glass Steagall ( signed by Clinton ) I am sorry but you preach class warfare.There is plenty of blame to around for both sides. Our current President is clueless. He is a media creation, and a fraud.
