bud-seligBud Selig is responsible for the steroid era in baseball.  It happened on his watch and he was most definitely aware of his players using performance enhancing drugs.  He should be held accountable.  Period.

Barney Frank and Chris Dodd are responsible for the sub-prime mortgage debacle.  The Washington Post published an article in December detailing the blatant disregard for fiscal responsibility on the part of Fannie’s and Freddie’s top executives.  Their operating orders came from Frank and Dodd.  They should be held accountable.  Period.barney-frank

When kids get in trouble in this country, parents hire lawyers and deny their child’s accountability and, therefore; their own accountability.  Your kid did it.  He/she should be held accountable.  Period.

Roger Clemens could ultimately be charged with perjury for lying to congress about using steroids.  We all know he lied.  If Roger is charged, and we can prove the CEOs of the banks lied to Congress, these perjured executives should be next, right?  They ran their companies into the ground.  They should be held accountable.  Period.
