    Per the New York Times (March 21): WASHINGTON — The Obama administration will call for increased oversight of executive pay at all banks, Wall Street firms and possibly other companies as part of a sweeping plan to overhaul financial regulation, government officials said.

    WOW, socialism is here. I heard starting next year everyone will have to wear gray jump suits!

    It's been here all along. Frankly, I'm glad Obama is finally taking the cloak off of it.

    Most politicians have at least enough judgement to realize they need to conceal their efforts, in an effort to give at least a perfunctory nod to the traditional notions of capitalism.

    But not Obama. This guy is just standing there, urinating in public...and wondering why everybody (even people on his own side) are looking at him funny.

    Nobody ever told this guy you're not supposed to fart in Church. His experience as a "community organizer" didn't teach him rule #1 of American Politics, which is: "1. You're supposed to put up the appearance of supporting capitalism, even if you're working to destroy it." He never got the word. He's finding it out on his own...and "maybe" the American public will wise up before he does.
