"When are progressives going to realize we need a good dose of Stalin in our veins? "

LOL ... and you Lefties wonder why the term "progressive" is rejected by so many as a hilarious charade.

Guffaw!

Once again, Brian's made the right call. The "scandals" in Washington pale in comparison to the evil that Wall Street does. Everybody who works on Wall Street is, by definition, evil and should be jailed. I'm glad Brian and The Guardian are not mamby-pamby about collateral damage to so-called "innocent" people who just happen to work in the financial sector. When are progressives going to realize we need a good dose of Stalin in our veins? To make a better world we must trample those standing in the way. Brian has started the parade. Let's all join him!

If derivatives are too complicated for Ms. Moore to discuss & explain, it's easy enough in NYC to get many who can discuss them.

She really has swallowed the Wall ST Kool Aid full force.

If she can't do her job, the Guardian should find someone who can.
