"Smart individuals- or smart lawyers or businesspeople, have either been taught or have learned to recognize when they're confronted with issues like that, and knowing that they're out of their depth- won't go Palinesque, but instead will look to credible specialists for advise."

In the meantime, banks are paying out billions of taxpayer monies as "dividends".

U.S. banks getting more than $163 billion from the Treasury Department for new lending are on pace to pay more than half of that sum to their shareholders, with government permission, over the next three years.
