Sandy Weill already stole his...now he wants to shut the door so no one else can steal theirs. The other banksters are not gonna like this guy leaving the reservation and hanging them out to dry. What happened to the code of honor among thieves?

Yes, he stole enough for himself. I would still like to see the banks broken up or Nationalized, even though that would only be a first step.

The TBTF banks should have never been bailed out in the first place. Capitalism dictates that failed businesses should fail and then have to liquidate or enter bankruptcy. If this were done, the banks would have been forced to dismantle themselves with no need to nationalize anything. Unfortunately, our government intervened in case of Wall Street making the TBTF banks even bigger.

Yes, and I don't believe it was by accident.

It was all part of the plan, the greatest heist in the history of the planet.

And I think it was more about testing the waters of the American people's ability to think, more than anything else.

I agree. Interestingly, all kinds of news is tested for how Americans respond. It seems that Americans have resolved to ONLY respond to significant news if and when it becomes extremely important, and that is being manipulated. Americans wait for clues to see if the news is big enough for them to learn anything about it, otherwise, they press on with their lives.

Everyone knows about the Aurora shootings, but not the fact that Corporations own Washington.
