Just began reading a new book by economist Jeffery Sachs about the current economic crisis. Didn’t make but a few pages before I had to stop and make a comment. Sachs says, “On many days it seems that the only difference between the Republicans and the Democrats is that big oil owns the Republicans while Wall Street owns the Democrats.”
As a Democrat I should resent half of what Sachs said. Trying to be open-minded I can’t. Given that no Wall Street moguls have been locked up yet I can only surmise the Democratically controlled Justice Department is not about to bite the hand holding the dog bone.
