    Well, of course not. They have lobbyists! Silly criminals, don’t you know you need lobbyists to break the law without fear of consequence?

    Elizabeth Warren is really giving those bankers “what for.”

    ^ That is a colloquial Southern term.

    Banks aren’t fastidious about the flavor of money (unless required, by law, to report the origins).

    Giving the bankers “what for” is not like giving them time.
    Pretty straightforward, their clients do the time and the bankers do the interest.
    .
    Somebody has to make it pay or it wouldn’t keep going on.

    She has asked each banker or expert how many bankers have gone to trial and the answer is none.
    The corner drug dealer that sells $20 worth of crack can go to prison for years, but these bankers laundered billions of money from the drug cartels and no one has been charged with anything.

    My brother-in-law, who retired from Bank of America as an actual “senior executive”, said a number of years after his retirement, and Reagan’s deregulation efforts, that he didn’t recognize the company, or industry he’d worked for decades in, to quote him: “They’ve become a legalized mafia.”


    Holder doesn’t hold all the cards any more, as CONGRESS has changed the laws turning these guys loose, and previous administrations have changed the regulations, sometimes even counter to even those “loose laws” to make bankers even safer from any prosecution, or punitive actions. And, yes, the Federal Register, for decades, has put out daily reams of new regulations for review, and Obama can’t hold a candle to Reagan’s or "W"’s people for altering, writing, or completely re-writing those regulations to favor “industry” and corporations. And also yes, one of the biggest jokes, and lies, the conservative pump out is that Obama is an “anti-business socialist”. He’s even further right than Clinton, and for a “Democrat”, that IS interesting indeed.

    @Ms. Ima

    A number of years ago tets were made of bundles of bills ad something like 60% was found to have traces of cocaine so when that drug dog sniffs your pants pocket, he’s not getting fresh.

    We are on the same side, I just do not have any hope.
    .
    The somebody has to make it pay comment was because of the example you gave, zero bankers even charged.
    People ready and able to stop profit find themselves alone then gone.
    .
    If Ms Warren actually causes some genuine problems she will no longer be heard.
    .
    Bet the bankers did not even care enough to make her an offer.

    Elizabeth Warren’s quote: “If you’re caught with an ounce of cocaine, the chances are good you’re going to go to jail. If it happens repeatedly, you may go to jail for the rest of your life. But, evidently, if you launder nearly a billion dollars for drug cartels and violate our international sanctions, your company pays a fine and you go home and sleep in your own bed at night, every single individual associated with this. And I think that’s fundamentally wrong.”

    And it’s all nice and legal.

    Remember, this is the lady that Republicans were terrified of being head of consumer protection.

    If you’re rich, you can by any politician you want, pass any laws you want, and then do anything you want. Shouldn’t our constitution prevent that type of systemic abuse?
