Same old, same old. Steal a dollar and go to jail for years, steal several billion dollars and win a dinner with the President.

Oh you poor banks! I’m so sorry you are feeling frustrated to have to pay for the screwing up our economy. Every day Americans are paying for what you did… have you no shame??

Well if the DOJ hadn’t been so scared of bringing criminal charges from the very outset and Obama had gone with Summers advice instead of Geithner’s and broke up the “too big to fail”, maybe, just maybe, this whole mess would be behind us. The whole problem is that we have the same old people with the same old ideas bouncing back and forth between DC and Wall Street.

Dear banks. You would have to pay around 1,000X what you’ve paid out so far to cover the cost of the damage you directly did to the economy and millions of people’s lives. No matter what the wimps in government make you pay, it will only be a fraction of what you owe.

Why do a half-a$$ job of regulation instead of bringing back the highly effective regulatory system created after the crash of 1929. The current situation has gone far beyond the abuses in those relatively halcyon days.
