I think it would be a good thing for shareholders to unite and say, ‘We are not interested in paying our executives this much money.’ That would work. But it’s not the government’s job to do that. It’s the stockholders job, but of course, they don’t seem to mind (Obama capping bank CEO salaries). I’m not sure why.

But then, he went towards the dark side….
No. You know, the problem is very intricate. It really has to do with bad mortgages. Until they solve the problem with bad mortgages and toxic funds, they are not going to solve anything. So, they can do whatever they want, but basically, this is a problem that was created in the last eight years, and it’s not going to go away overnight.
If I were in charge, I’d have them buy up the toxic waste. You know, just like we did back when the savings and loans fiasco happened.
With all due respect, the problem was created a long, long, time ago in a government far, far away. Master Lucas should’ve known better, then again, even he could never work in that town again if he didn’t tow the line.
