Every blog needs a motto. Matt Taibbi has pushed me to recognize that:
Thanks to a deadly combination of unscrupulous states illegally borrowing from their pensioners, and unscrupulous banks whose mass sales of fraudulent toxic subprime products crashed the market, these funds were out some $930 billion. Yet the public was being told that the problem was state workers' benefits were simply too expensive.
Thanks to circumstances beyond our control, the motto of this blog has been determined: People Are Too Damned Expensive!
It's the American way.
