    Merger & Acquisition.

     

    The idea here is to use policy and regs of a bunch of yayhoos who don't have skin in the game and aren't accountable for the results to get other people to push loans onto yet other wild speculators.

    These clueless idiots will not be satisfied until they have "managed" our economy back into the dark ages.
