Hang the bankers… ? Bernanke, Paulson, Geithner, Rubin, Corzine, Dimon and Blankfein aresafe for now, but perhaps if we moved Wall Street to downtown Tehran.
We have an entire class of people and financial corporations who do little more than use their money (via lobbying) and power to extract (e.g., legally steal) billions of dollars from both taxpayers and shareholders, and they are heralded as ‘job creators’ and ‘captains of industry.’ When caught doing something that is actually illegal (Libor manipulation, for example), they blame rogue traders and call upon political connections with Eric Holder and Lanny Breuer via the Covington & Burling infested Department of Justice.
Scoundrels, every last one of them.
Meanwhile, those who steal from grocery stores generally go to jail.
It is not fair. It is not just. It is not right. And it is why, according to a new Gallup Poll,‘Reducing Corruption in Government’ has become the second most important issue to American voters, with a whopping 87% of all votes.
Now, onto to Iran, where banksters get punished.
