"Any activities of financial institutions that threaten US economic stability"? Guilty until proven innocent? Would this have helped prevent Enron? Not likely.

If only they would do the OPPOSITE of what they think they should do. More regulations and more oversight won't help our economy, instead, it's turning it into a financial police state.

1984 here we are!
