    Brilliant Toon. And speaking as an old CFTC registered futures Trading Advisor, perfectly accurate. It’s FREE and FAIR markets that the public in a democracy desires, not simply FREE.

    You mean Obama and the democrats biggest donors?
    Where I live there have been several fund raiser dinners for Obama at $40,000 a plate.
    15 miles of freeway gets shut down during the evening rush hour so Barry or Michelle can go pick up the check.Then again a few hours latter when they go back to Airforce 1 and the fleet of aircraft that haul their vehicles and hundreds of security people.Funny how the Democrats don’t seem to mind about the freeway shut downs.
    When the republicans have a fund raiser it’s $2500 a plate.Unfortuately for the dems is that a lot more folks go to these dinners and the freeway doesn’t get shut down.Why don’t the LWNJ news nerds report these stories?I guess it’s so the easily duped,like you, won’t realize how two faced the news nerds and the democrats really are.
    It’s not what they report ,it’s what they don’t report that shows what they really are.

    Ha, HFT makes trading a scam. Fortunately all my money is safely tied up in bitcoins, so nothing bad can happen to me.

    Current reading is a book titled “Good Advice from Bad People” by Zac Bissonnette which features a lot of these sort of people and the actually good advice they gave in public while being swindlers in back.

    Those that have the power also have the wealth and visa versa. They are on the same side regardless of party.

    Jon Stewart had that guy on his show who wrote the book about it. A really interesting thing. I work in IT and once did trading-floor support, back in 98 or so. Wasn’t a big issue back then, but the first glimpses of the coming future could be seen.

    Nowadays the traders demand (!) a direct fiber optic line between NYC (Wall Street) and Chicago (commodities trading) because a satellite link, or even routing through other cities, is too slow for them. We are talking nanoseconds her, people!

    PS: I left it abbreviated to “CONS” for a reason.

    Funny, I heard about this scandal about a week ago on Fox News… You know, the CONS network….
