engage in activities that may lead to a bail-out are using government and tax payer money to take risk. Accordingly, those bankers are civil servants and should be compensated as such.

They should be kicked to the curb, left to live in the streets, the way they treat foreclosed homeowners.

At the very least.

How about the sewer system? If by some miracle any of them are ever prosecuted and found guilty, they will likely serve time in one of those country club like prisons. The sewer system seems more appropriate.

criminal charges for bankers who purposely or negligently blow up the system.

Then the sewer system.

Damn you are funny. Best idea I have ever heard in my life.

Sewers could be converted from unofficial homeless shelters, into prisons for white collar criminals rather easily.

You got my support. I thought of digging a big hole and throwing them inside to starve to death or eat their own flesh, but that's also cool.

The world has become too small to shit where you eat, so it seems appropriate that those who do, should eat shit.

You got my vote!

Thanks, but I'd be killed.

I like it! All evil banksters to the sewer.

Straight from the courtroom to the manhole. Plop.

I work for a huge bank. And what goes on here is unbelievable. No matter at which level of the company, the goal is to rip people off -- plain and simple.

But as long as the banks have people like Obama and Romney in their pocket, it won't change unless the people finally rise up.

Awww... Such wishful thinking. May be you should consider a career as a writer of fiction. If nothing else, I will surely buy your book and also buy one each for everyone in the office so that you wouldn't blame me for being greedy and not sharing my wealth (or the lack of it)

[-] 1 points by April (3196) 2 years ago

How about the wealthy get to keep their money and crimes of Wall Street are properly investigated and prosecuted so that they may be held appropriately accountable for their actions?

That makes much more sense than raising taxes. I think you should that they should have a full, open confession and if any information is revealed that they didn't give to the court they should get punished more for it.

[-] 1 points by opensociety4us (914) from Norwalk, CT 2 years ago

sounds reasonable to me. those who purposefully or negligently blew up the system should face charges.

no doubt it will be hard to rid our nation's capitalism of entitlement-seeking welfare bankers looking for capital hand-outs, but it's happening. yes, it's happening. the charlatans are on the run and, one day, the US might see real capitalism.
