29. Please do not put words in my mouth.
First of all, stupid is your word, not mine. You put it in quotes as if to make it appear that I used that word, which I didn't. I respectfully request that you go back and edit that, so as not to further mischaracterize what I said.

Second, I'll reserve my compassion for those who weren't complicit in their own victimhood. The bottom line is that I still maintain that the word "no" would have kept people out of a whole lot of trouble, but people CHOSE not to use it because they saw blinky-shiny waving in front of their face. I stood up to the same bunch of slick-talking salesmen that they did, and somehow I didn't get screwed, because I used the word "no", repeatedly. They wanted something for nothing, and got screwed as a result. They were just as driven by greed as the banksters, and I have no compassion for the greedy.

And as far as accountability is concerned, I want accountability - just for all responsible, not the cherry-picked few that offend your sensibilities.
