    Lessons Learned ?……how about the criminals in Washington doing their jobs, like enforcing regulations that have been in place for years, such as the SEC regulating Wall Street and the Senate Banking Committee overseeing Fannie Mae and Freddy Mack. We all know why that didn’t happen. Their all “on the take” with the entities their supposed to be overseeing.Barnie Frank and Chris Dodd to name just two. Now we have Charlie Rangle who oversees the IRS being exposed for the tax cheat that he is. Guess what happens to you when you pull what Rangle has been pulling for years.

    Funny how this happened under the no regulation Republican watch and the Democrats get blamed. In case Buck is not aware the Republicans were in charge of the House and the Senate 10 of the past 12-1/2 years and during that time had the Presidency for 8 of them. What changes did they make to prevent this from occuring.
