Galbraith was great and said, let them leave.
Obama chided the bankers for taking the $18 billion as bonuses for their ineptitude ... I mean, performance.
We don't have to look to the pirates off the African coast any longer to see the mentality in action.
I say taking $18 billion of tax payer money is tantamount to embezzlement.
