    Corruption in sport is SO much more important, especially in someone else’s national game!

    I think that it’s absolutely stunning that the FBI can spend three years successfully investigating a multinational sports organization for bribery and corruption but can’t put indictments together on our domestic financial institutions’ executives. I wonder if the FBI can even spell duhrivuhtiv.

    Wall Street banksters have owned our government (both political parties) at least since the 80’s. If you can remember the S & L crisis. The savings and loan debacle was one-seventieth the size of the 2008 crisis, both in terms of losses and the amount of fraud. In that crisis, the savings and loan regulators made over 30,000 criminal referrals, and this produced over 1,000 felony convictions in cases designated as “major” by the Department of Justice. But even that understates the degree of prioritization, because the regulators, worked very closely with the FBI and the Justice Department to create a list of the top 100 — the 100 worst fraud schemes. They involved roughly 300 savings and loans and 600 individuals, and virtually all of those people were prosecuted. We had a 90 percent conviction rate, which is the greatest success against elite white-collar crime (in terms of prosecution) in history.

    Several have been indicted by the state of New York, but federally they’ve been sacrosanct. I don’t think its so much owning the government as owning the economy.

    Hey, republicans don’t like all those regulations about Wall Street. We are not allowing free enterprise to flourish and raise all boats. They want to do away with big government and all those silly rules.
