7. You might like this Sanders quote, from msnbc

 

.."Sanders blistered what he called 'a casino-type capitalism', which is out of control, where the people on top have lost any sense of responsibility for the rest of the society." He praised the contributions made by innovators and entrepreneurs but said in some sectors, such as banking, the biggest firms had amassed so much market power to inhibit competition. One top priority, he noted, would be changing the campaign finance system that had developed since the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court freed wealthy donors of some constraints previously in effect."

So, yes. I don't think Sanders disagrees with you, nor to I, when it comes to being disgusted by the speculative casino-like machinations of Wall St.

Beyond that -- in terms of publicly labeling Wall St. greed-heads as dangerous psychopaths who will be provided with gambling addiction treatment services, psycho-meds, etc. -- not so much.

I think it's totally A-OK for us to agree to disagree.
