Man in window: There's a valuable lesson in the art of covering your tracks to be learned here...
This is a scene from whenever a bank exec goes to prison.
You know this is a fantasy – when has a corporate head ever gone to jail?
Is that an admission of guilt?! What a miracle.
Is your strip on GoComics?
Well, Adam (Snoopster) If you’re really determined to be a cartoonist, I wish you good luck (seriously). Be prepared for a lot of hard work, not necessarily drawing but persuading newspapers, websites, etc to take your finished product..Go to it, keep practising and, above all, keep learning things that’ll be useful to you; in other words, everything; because it’ll broaden your outlook and you’ll be more versatile.
Considering the guard is with the board, I’d say it’s another case of the CEO exercising “plausible deniability” and throwing the senior execs to the wolves.
we should send all of wall street behind bars for their actions. financial crisises, scandals (libor), etc…
Tricky panel…the board has the guard, but the CEO wears pinstripes and a number…I think he is in prison and they are visiting him with their board meeting…while the guard is attending a bored meeting.
Now comes the real insider trading.
@NightShade09@RadishHow could we ever conceive of the wizards of Wall Street, you know, the guys who wear 3 piece suits and do 3 martini lunches possibly doing jailtime? These are the white collar elite.These “business leaders” are the captains of industry, the defenders of capitalism, , the “job creators” (in India China, Singapore ,etc.).They are the modern day patriots.Precious jail space must be reserved for the blue collar riffraff, who perpetrate the grievous sins of the possession of minute amounts of marijuana and other such heinous crimes.
Don’t want to get into a political controversy, but every time I hear the words “job creator,” I immediately look to see if the unemployment rate has gone down appreciably. It has not. So why aren’t the “job creators” creating jobs? Either pay for more workers or pay the taxes or stop calling oneself a job creator. Seems simple.
This is the same Board shown today in “Cornered”, just a few months later.
Thank you for your kind words. I read everyone’s comments with interest (often disagreeing but careful to mind my manners); especially like the jokes. One subject I stay out of is politics. That seems like an exercise in futility. “Power corrupts” and all that. Humans have demonstrated time and again that we are incapable of governing ourselves effectively for very long.
Good luck with the strip. I tried it in the early 60s. Cut throat business. Ya’ gotta know somebody that’s already in it to show you the ropes. Stay away from the schools that guarantee placement after graduation. “Art Instruction” was notorious for grabbing yer money, issuing a Certificate Of Completion, and so long sucker. Used my God given talent to become a Draftsman and eventually a Mechanical Engineer. Imagination is the key ingredient. Get well (injured). Heard about yer busted leg.
Visitation Day for Bernie Medoff.
Don’t forget Raj Rajaratnam. Or Jeff Skilling. Or Sanjay Kumar. Or Bernie Ebbers. Or Richard Scrushy. Or…or…
You must be quite some kid to take all the flak you have been given here – so I think you will be a success in whatever you do. Just remember to keep your goal in front of you and eventually you will reach it. Best of luck!
Modern “business model” since deregulation: “Nothing is illegal until you get caught.” Of course when almost anything IS “legal”, you’ve REALLY got to be a crook to get caught at anything that still IS!
I know I’m a worry wart sometimes, but is it a good idea to post your real name (I’m assuming) and where you live? Maybe I’m just paranoid . . .
Well said! My thoughts exactly. I’m glad I’m not the only one questioning, or is that what he hoped for?
You touch on the underlying suspicion of my post . . . too many red flags . . .
I’d make it a part of any rescue of “too big to fail banks” that they get broken into smaller parts, lest we have to rescue them again very soon.
In that case, you should definitely delete the posts that contain personal information such as your location and age or you should stop using your real name, or both.
Let’s see, there is an Adam Nedens in Montana who likes NASCAR and says he is 21 years old. Do you know him?
If the chairman is the only one in prison, I’d say the scheme went rather well.
“Faint of heart people get crushed no matter how good they are. The meek have it bad if they want to produce art here in the corporate dominated world.”
I almost forgot to ask . . do you work in the visual arts?
