You know, when the conservative/Republican philosophy of unregulated free markets has just imploded the world economy it's probably not the best time to trot out this sort of tired, witless caricature of what Democrats stand for.

I think we have a disagreement on definitions.

Barney Frank receiving financial kick-backs, Democrats receiving huge campaign contributions, laws passed to "encourage" loans to unsuitable borrowers, etc. These are things that I consider (politically corrupt) regulation and oversight.

I suppose you consider it unregulated & free but only because it's the Democrats who are controlling and benefitting from said oversight.
