I do not remember just how long ago, maybe eight years, I read a book titled "Den of Thieves". It was about Michael Milken and Ivan Boesky, men whose exploits in greed brought the destruction of many middle class people's live. This was 20 years ago that these events took place and yet look where we are today. Once again greed and Wall Street are causing massive pain to the middle class. And the Republicans say we do not need government oversight on Wall Street? How many times must the majority of us be at the mercy of a few people with more power than any one person or small group of persons should have? We can vote a political leader out of office if we disapprove of the job they have done but when it comes to those in charge of our money we must idly sit by while they do whatever they please.
