    If you don’t want to be hated, don’t work on Wall St.

    Jail is too god for them. Rawhiding or being staked in the sun are apt punishments.

    Actually the model preferred involves a guillotine and is much more limited in scope.

    One perp walk. I want to see just one of them do a perp walk. Is that too much to ask?

    Wait, so Wall Street gets dumped on but the GOVERNMENT that created the mess to begin with… they get a free pass?

    I propose a drinking game: Take a drink (of whatever) every time exoticdoc2 uses the word “Obamanation” ANYWHERE on this site. And you KNOW he’ll use it here!

    lame above proves once again what three formal studies have proven before: that blight wingers are less well informed than people who read or watch no news at all and have no opinions.

    Didn’t Shakespeare say first kill all the bankers?

    In this case, LameName may have a point. Government, especially the Feds, has indeed become an almost wholly owned subsidiary of Wall St., and it’s indeed tempting to say “to the tumbrels” with them all. OTOH, government has been historically and remains our only hope for protection against the naturally rapacious aspects of capitalism. Myself, I’d settle for taxing ALL income, in whatever form including capital gains and inheritance, pretty much the same and more progressively. Something significant needs to be done about the revolving door between the regulators and Wall St. as well.

    No, not entirely. At least their party lost the national elections in 2008 and 2012. Unfortunately, too much of the thinking that created the policies that created the mess is still alive and kicking, and not just in the GOP.

    There is an old joke: Steal from one author, it is “plagiarism”; steal from many authors, and it is “research.”

    Maybe we could also say: Trick one person out of his money and it is “fraud”; trick millions out of their money, and it is “business.”
