Quote Of The Day

At one point, the Jedi Master was making sense.

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.
George Lucas

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.

    will you ever find it in your heart to forgive?

    will Bob ever put up a comments section that allows preview if not editing?

    “..even he could never work in that town again if he didn’t tow the line.” and that’s a sad fact…when Lucas said “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.” that makes him sound like a conservative, and if anything, I wish he WAS a conservative, knowing the “power of the force” of his attraction this various material that some of us enjoy, you’d think he’d love capitalism & all. Being that was born & raised around a liberal area of California..that makes for some unfortunate “understanding” that liberalism is acceptable..and that stinks. The guy is a GENIUS..just not that politically keen I suppose. I’m sure he’s MUCH better at running his companies than understanding conservatism

    if anything though, unless he does something incredibly outlandish…I’ll still buy the stuff he sells and keep paying attention to him, he’s a pretty interesting guy, politics aside

    All this effort for a two percent problem. Great smokescreen.

    [b]2%[/b] of mortgages are listed as being in default right now, with another 5% listed as behind in payments…
