Greed got us where we are.

case in point

Think about your town, state and country 30 years ago. How it has changed. Many Amricans have fallen prey to the notion that the pursuit of riches trumps the values of our childhood. Those values and traditions that shaped a country that welcomed immigrants, valued honesty and the rule of law. When business decisions were made they were viewed through the lens of what is fair to the employees that made the products, or performed the service that made the business viable. When laws were instituted they also were made from a recipe balanced with ingrediants that were balanced so that neither citizens nor business gained weight. Balance and moderation might be what we should seek.

Greed aint' getting it done.
