i can think of no clearer way of expressing it. How can legalized crime exist? By purchasing it!!! Corruption and bribery used to be concealed due to shame and damage to reputations. Now it is almost worn as a badge of honor. How fubar is that?

In banana republics these people would be lined up against a wall and shot. Here they are rewarded. Too big to fail my fubar ass!!! Break them up if they're that big!!! In the olden days when anything got that big it was considered a monopoly, of which these mega-banks behave the same way. LIBOR proved that. Collusion to fix interest rates on $800 trillion of securites. And what is being done about that? I have heard nothing in the news about it since the story broke.

Unrestrained crapitalism - where everything is for sale - look for the White House on E-bay - no doubt there will be an auction.

Good call. We are not under a capitalist system at all, crapitalism is much close to the truth.

Another great eye-opening post. If we ever open the 'derivative market can of worms', we will probably want to close it posthaste.

Yup. Those bailed-out bitches are bigger, badder, and ballsier than ever. And Obama's just letting them go.

One of the worst mistakes of his administration. He should have the SEC and DOJ all over their ass whipping their britches where they can"t sit down cause they behave like rich, spoiled kids who need a good old-fashioned ass-whoopin'.
