    Why aren’t they arresting the thieves of wall street? They have ruined millions of lives and stolen trillions of dollars.

    Iceland’s economy tanked before ours, brought on by the same deregulation and shoddy untrustworthy banking practices that would bring us down soon after. Iceland’s economy is now booming. The reason? They punished the bankers and bailed out the taxpayers.

    Of all the reasons the Justice Department has given us to loathe them, the fact that no one has been indicted, let alone prosecuted, is the most important failure of all.

    And, I believe, refused to pay back what was owed to other countries. At least that’s what I read in the press.

    The economy is fine. The monetary system by which economic exchange of labor is accomplished is broken. When your government raises your cost of living by $1500 per year to fund giving you an extra $900 per year as an welfare entitlement for your cost of living, you are being lied to and stolen from while having nothing to steal except your trust in the government and your faith in the monetary system.

    It’s because of “The Golden Rule…I.E. Whoever has the Gold Makes the Rules!”

    I wonder how many Bankers bribed various Police Chiefs around the country to break up the “Occupy” demonstrations, even though most of then were peaceful?

    wealth envy, class warfare, no real facts just victims, yep, this is a liberal fantasy strip. Obama will be pleased with his media mind numb Minoans.

    poignant………………….not! Bors-Sorenson-Rall worshipers, crawl out of your parents’ basements to love this tripe. Make sure you’re wearing something Euro-trashy, and by all means, don’t bathe.

    The US economy was greatly burdened by old laws put into place by that Socialist FDR, laws that put a Glass ceiling on what bankers could earn. Fortunately, Bill Clinton pushed through the repeal of those laws, and allowed the economy to flourish, just as it did in ’29 before those laws were enacted.


    Clinton, Bush, Jr, and Obama agree that laws limiting how much bankers can pay themselves are terrible, and they know much more than any of the people commenting here. It is vital that bankers be able to foreclose without squandering their bonuses on silly paperwork that is on the books, but which Bush, Jr and Obama know must never be enforced, lest it wreck our recovery. And when Clinton, Bush, Jr and Obama are in complete agreement with St Hoover, you know they must be right.

    Iceland borrowed in krona, and they paid back in krona. (Of course, they did this by printing krona, so those repayments were worth much less than what they’d borrowed, but it was still legal and aboveboard.)


    And, as I Play One on TV said, Iceland bankers missed their bonuses, when the first and foremost duty of any government is to guarantee the bonuses of the bankers who paid their baksheesh (sorry, Lehman, you didn’t pay enough).

    When a poor man robs a rich man while wearing a mask, that’s theft. When a rich man robs a poor man while wearing a suit, that’s capitalism.
    Maybe it’s time for us to “stand our ground”?

    You conservatives are way, way off base on this one. A lot of it happened because the clients were lied to about the loans, and assured that they were earning enough money to buy the house. In any real-estate loan transaction, you’ve got a loaner who has done thousands of loans and knows what’s reasonable, and a client who usually hasn’t done it before and trusts the professional. Blaming the client for not knowing that it was an unethical loan is like blaming the guy who buys a car with a bad water pump. “GM is innocent! He should have checked the water pump before he bought the car!” No, we have a right to expect cars that work, and that loan payments are presented truthfully. And if that isn’t happening, that’s where government is essential to police the business, because business has proven incontestably that it can’t.
