Seems that too many congressmen are beholden to all the interests, left and/or right. IE, if memory serves most Wall St firms (IB, hedge funds) on balance contributed more to the Democrat presidential campaigns last year.

Might just live to see Thomas Jefferson’s quotation be tested…about the tree of liberty and what-not

Whereas a year ago he was very long-term optimistic, he is now ill-at-ease with the direction of government.

He went from talking about how America’s best days lie ahead, to a possible future as a banana republic.

Does anyone see any chance of federal deficits coming under control absent Adam Smith’s invisible brass knuckled fist?

Those are usually a Buffett trademark.
