What happened? They got her out of the way...and because of this, I feel they should be held more accountable for creating our Current Financial Nightmare. Either way, they should not be writing or anyway involved with creating our New Financial Regulations. They had their chance, and they blew it!
"The Warning" is an insightful Documentary Film on how they created the "Dark Markets"--and their Undoing at OUR Expense! The sad Truth for us, however, is that they can still do this, why? Because for the most part, the Financial Markets are still Deregulated!

More on how we got into this Financial Mess: November 4, 1999, the Day our Financial Nightmare Began... http://occupywallst.org/forum/the-day-the-gramm-leach-bliley-act-of-1999-came-up/
What to do about it Now? The Marches to REINSTATE the Glass-Steagall Act & to Close All Loopholes for Oil Speculator: http://occupywallst.org/forum/its-time-for-a-million-people-march-to-capitol-hil/ Let's get Focused--We don't need to REINVENT the Wheel--This will Reinstate the Important Regulations we had from 1933 to 1999--Before Congress SHATTERED them! Maybe, make the March into "The Financial Woodstock for Wall Street Reform!"
Here's my Proposal on "How to Accomplish the Marches for the Return of the Glass-Steagall Act & to Close All Loopholes for Oil Speculators." http://occupywallst.org/forum/howtodoits-proposal-on-how-to-accomplish-the-march/
Here's a Great way to get the Word out on "The Marches for Return of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 & to Close All Loopholes for Oil Speculators"--Celebrities! And I'm letting them all know. http://occupywallst.org/forum/heres-a-great-way-to-get-the-word-out-on-the-march/

I just saw an opportunity here with this OWS Forum to hopefully help more people understand how and why we got into this financial mess, and one way to fix it. That's all. God Bless America!
