“Lets stop playing the blame game.”

>

I cringe every time I hear someone say that.

Why?

Because its not a game — this is serious business.

As a nation, we need to understand how this economic mess occurred; why certain companies were allowed to operate with reckless abandon; why the taxp-ayers had to pay to clean it up. We need to hold those people who broke the law or violated their fiduciary obligations or the public trust accountable. We must stop wasting taxpayer monies. We have to prevent this from happening all over again;

Or, we can stop playing the “blame game,” let the guilty parties walk away wioth their tax-payer funded lucre, and allow the sheeple to go back to watching American Idol.

None of this sounds like a game to me . . .
