If they had given the government the money they needed to go after those bond brokers who used the bad mortgages to back their securities with several layers of masquerade - just like Enron which Bush promised would never happen again and supposedly passed legislation for.
If they had given the authorities more money in terms of enforcement and fraud, it wouldn't have happened.
There’s enough regulation - if nothing else downright common every day fraud laws - that they could have used to prevent it.
If you don't give cops enough money you can't get the job done.
It's not that we need more regulations but we need to stand tough on what we have and let the crooks know we are watching and there are repercussions. Supplements with Obama YouTube video clips

Germany’s Austrian & Swiss Border
- Lake Constance -
More slidesIsle view (enlarged) with Upper Rhine Valley (Austrian/Swiss), and SÄNTIS mountain

Although I did not live on the isle, of course, our family’s residence has been situated only a few ‘walking’ minutes away, within the surrounding county, i.e., on the “Schneeberghalde” - adjacent to the castle “Schloss Moos”.
Here’re a few more details (with photos).

Hillary Clinton has accomplished the unexpected. With victories in Texas and Ohio, she's back in the running for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination. And she's back in the ring with Obama -- in a fight which may continue until the nomination convention in August.
Hillary Clinton's aides put a lot of thought and care into selecting the location for her victory celebration. Columbus' Athenaeum is a proud building with a mighty coffered ceiling. As befits its victory, the Clinton party is being held in the Olympian Ballroom… SPIEGEL INTERNATIONAL & 17 photos

Surgical scissors left in stomachs, operations on the wrong knee, prescriptions of uppers instead of downers -- medical error is not just the stuff of fiction. Now a group of German doctors has decided to break a taboo and talk openly about their slip-ups.
The myth of the doctor who will make everything better is not just popular with patients but also useful for doctors. Now, for the first time, a group of German doctors wants to dispel it. The German Coalition for Patient Safety, a non-profit association of health care professionals, institutions and patient organizations, has published a brochure that explains the frequency and range of medical malpractice in Germany… SPIEGEL INTERNATIONAL
