Dr Elam, I thought more about what was being said on Saturday and it had me thinking. If what Ken lay said was true , that he did everything the government "said he could do" making his actions legal, how come those that allowed such things to exist were not punished? Do we not have a common law in this land known as guilty by association? I mean, if the regulators knowingly signed off on the tactics they were using should they not be punished too? If I remember correctly, there were ties to Enron and the whitehouse which means there was more than likely dirty money floating around given they probably were aware of the things going on. They can claim they didn't know all you they want, but everyone knows that a political person will use there coercive ways to protect there position in a governmental hiearchy, and protect their wealth. I mean why not congressmen do this all the time we just can't ever prove it, except on a few occasions. Hell, thats what Lobbying is really.

Dennis Elam


You put your finger RIGHT on it when you said lobbying. Enron had Merrill Lynch and the big banks doing its bidding as well as the big law firms in Texas. So how come AA got tanked and not the others. Well one reason was that Kenny Boy, Bush's phrase, spread money on both sides of the aisle and we really didn't want to go kicking those antbeds over as a result. But the lawyers all survived, the accoutants did not. That's not fair but there are a lot more lawyers than cpas in congress.................
