I'm sure it was a good speech but after a few minutes I think I would rather be waterboarded.

Short attention span here.

Kudos to his Chief of Staff--he probably would have had a better delivery than a 70+ year old,former life long Senate Staff "insider".

That's probably true but HFT is what is proping it up now and what caused the horrible oil prices that strained the economy to the breaking point before the crash.

Well at least he said it. Yes, the written comment was better but at least is was said. Kudos to the old fart. It's just the beginning IMO..and I would not rather be waterboarded than listening to him. If you think there is no voice that supports your opinions on this subject, then stop whining. Nothing will cure your ills.
