Music Monday

I feel that with the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the banking/mortgage/brokerage industries in general, this song was only fitting. It's not the original video, which is some way cool animation, but it will have to do.

We have, in part, the repeal of the Glass-Steagal Act under, I cringe to say it, President Clinton to blame for this current state of affairs. That and unmitigated greed and allowing brokerages and banks to essentially break the law with no consequences. But isn't that the American way?

The more I hear about how this thing came about, the more disgusted I am by the greed of people. Clinton blew it by repealing Glass-Steagal. We need to repeal the repeal, I suspect, but that's not going to happen. The horse has left the barn already.

I liked the boxing kitty in the video. Cute. :)

Sigh. But I still love him. And doesn't he look great these days? Hill was in town here...but she looked tired. I worry for her. (In all my spare time.)

Why doesn't everyone simply listen to US, gina? We're terribly smart.

Democrats are hardly blameless when it comes to the current state of the economy. But at least they try to throw the public a bone or two on occasion. The difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Democrats will at least leave the door open for progressives, labor, and minority groups to come in and talk, while Republicans will slam that door in your face.

Again, no clue who this is singing, but the kitty is cute.

"I've seen the future/I can't afford it - tahhh" Love ABC, and this one comes up on my iTunes player quite often. Are they trying to tell me something?
