The End Is Still Nigh

Someone posted an hour long phone call between industry big wigs to Wikileaks & my favorite news website wrote a story on it. In spite of the detestable behavior we already know these men from the participating companies are capable of (including Bank of America, AIG, Rick Bergman & Bernie Marcus), they have this time reached a new low...the idea of using bailout money to lobby congress against the Employee Free Choice Act. Huntington has portion of the audio or you can listen to the entire call at Wikileaks.

During the call, there was a comment made by the co-founder of Home Depot regarding how the EFCA bill could effect America...ironically, it sounds like a statement made by someone, looking in on their economy killing practices and principles. It went like this:

"This is the demise of a civilization.  This is how a civilization disappears.  I am sitting here as an elder statesman and I'm watching this happen and I don't believe it."
