A congressional committee is investigating how $1.6 billion in customer funds went missing from bankrupt brokerage MF Global said Friday that it’s found evidence that then-CEO Jon Corzine directed a senior executive to use $200 million of clients’ money.”
I thought Democrats were not subject to financial and accounting laws because they created the laws for us. All Corzine needs to do is go before the judge and jury, then tell them they are stupid and he knows better. He was just protecting these poor shareholders from themselves.
What a bunch of ingrates!
I'm REALLY looking forward to Stacy Keach telling the story on CNBC's AMERICAN GREED.
This really made me reflect on the hypocrisy of these degenerates. Just a few years ago he himself (a former Goldman billionaire) was grilling hardworking Americans for simply wanting to keep the money we earned. To no surprise, he’s just another swindler like Madoff, Charlie Rangel, Chris Dodd & Barney Frank.
Speaking of left wing double-dealers, this caused me to further ponder the insanity of having Mitt Romney stand before America to figuratively “prosecute” Barack Obama for the treason Obama has perpetrated on America – while knowing Romney has advocated every aspect of Obamacare and even ADVISED Obama to implement the odious individual mandate.
Well, again, to be fair, Romney has offered one last distinction between Romneycare and Obamacare – which is that despite being identical in essence, Romneycare was 70 pages and Obamacare was several hundred pages. But we still have not gotten Romney to clarify what size font he used in his bill and whether he single or double spaced.
So the jury is still out on that “number of pages” issue. But I think it is pretty clear that the prudence of nominating Romney to be the one to stand before the nation and “prosecute” Obama is about as sensible as it would be to appoint John Corzine to prosecute Bernie Madoff. If we do not fix this with a brokered convention then we are about to witness unprecedented folly in American history.
Every time I think about it I picture kids in a history class studying the time when a tyrant was given another 4 years to destroy America because a minority of the opposing party allowed 35% to nominate a Wall Street CEO during an unprecedented period of national enmity toward Wall Street and who invented the prototype for Obamacare.
The story that comes to mind in this situation is the story of King Solomon recounted in 1Kings 3:16-28. “Two young women who lived in the same house and who both had an infant son came to Solomon for a judgment. One of the women claimed that the other, after accidentally smothering her own son while sleeping, had exchanged the two children to make it appear that the living child was hers. The other woman denied this and so both women claimed to be the mother of the living son and said that the dead boy belonged to the other.
After some deliberation, King Solomon called for a sword to be brought before him. He declared that there is only one fair solution: the live son must be split in two, each woman receiving half of the child. Upon hearing this terrible verdict, the boy's true mother cried out, "Please, My Lord, give her the live child—do not kill him!" However, the liar, in her bitter jealousy, exclaimed, "It shall be neither mine nor yours—divide it!" Solomon instantly gave the live baby to the real mother, realizing that the true mother's instincts were to protect her child, while the liar revealed that she did not truly love the child. The reputation of the king greatly increased when all the people of Israel heard of this wise judgment.”
Romney should –drop out of the race for the good of the country. If he TRULY is a patriot who loves his country he should surrender his life-long ambition. Despite the so-called "large" victory in Illinois, except for perhaps the People’s Republic of Massachusetts, he has not won a majority of a state’s vote (unlike Newt and Rick Santorum).
I know he has always wanted to be President and he has been running for President ever since he retired from Bain – but the fact is that he is the worst possible candidate we could have at this time. Out of 300 MILLION Americans, there is only ONE… ONE… Republican (not just one Governor)… but only ONE Republican who successfully inoculates Obama -Willard that one person is Willard Mitt Romney.
This looks like a last test from God as to who will consciously allow this nation to be split in half. Mitt Romney will lose – and so goes the union.
