@33ktgio7dq4jhI hope people who just read your comment list realize that you are only asking me political questions:<) We keep repeating the lessons of the past because we fail to remember or learn from them as George Santayana pointed out. There is a PBS documentary showing John Kenneth Galbraith explaining that panics or depressions happen every generation, just long enough for people to feel that times have changed and it could never happen to them. We had both the dot.com financial collapse and this present one since 2000 but that is because 9/11 wiped out the past and the millenium changed so we knew all was different already. It isn’t.
