Work Hard And You Will Succeed?

U.S. President Barack Obama

The 2008 financial crisis bankrupted a lot of innocent people, who lost their life savings, pensions, kids tuition funds, homes and cars. People worked hard, saved their money and lost everything, due to greedy people in the corporate sector that flouted the law and shunned human decency.

People promote hard work as the way to success and it is in society. However, that message is greatly diminished, especially for the youth in society, via the horrible example the government has set, in allowing people in the corporate sector, who have engaged in egregious financial crimes that harmed many in the America and the world, to roam free and continue to take advantage of hardworking people.

Congress, the FBI, DOJ and SEC, have shielded the majority of financial criminals in the corporate sector from accountability. Shame on you. Shame on you, indeed. Which path do you expect kids will aspire to walk down when they see such hypocrisy and corruption coming from the government.
