If there is one thing I am passionate about it is fairness. Indeed, I'm passionately passionate on the subject.
Back when John Edwards was still the next president of the United States I noted his ability to live in one of his "two Americas" (that would be the one with 10,000 sq ft houses) while milking the other (that would be the one populated by the rest of us) for all it was worth.
I don't know if I mentioned it, but I'm all about fairness. So when I saw this in Politico I felt I had no choice but to act on my passion for fairness.
Barack Obama went to New York on Thursday and blamed lobbyists, greedy businessmen and complacent Washington politicians for creating “an ethic of greed” that led to today’s foreclosure crisis.
Not long after he left the stage, the Democratic presidential hopeful attended a fundraiser held by his campaign in a room in the Manhattan headquarters of Credit Suisse, one of the major investment companies caught up in the subprime lending mess.
