Bad loans were not the problem Michael. The problem was created with the deregulation of banks and the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 which over rode state gambling laws. The problem Michael was not the loans, it was the derivative securities. The "mal investment" as you want to call it was paid for in the US by bank owners. The US government provided bridge funding in the form of loans and equity in the banks and other companies. It was not and is not a giveaway funded by the tax payer as you want to represent. And the government is getting paid back with interest. You just told me in your last post that you were doing well. So now you are in pain and not doing well? That was a fast turnaround. If you could better define a consistent moral code, you might have more of a case Michael. But your moral code seems to change faster than the weather. With respect to Corzine, he did give up his bonuses. And there is no evidence and you have not provided any evidence that he did anything criminal. There is certianly corruption in Washington. Washington is ripe with corruption. But instead of jousting with windmills, we need to focus our attention on the real sources of corruption. The real corruption in our government is all the special interest money than funds K Street and political movements like yours. We need to get smart and change the way we elect our representatives - take the special interest money out of our elections. Until that happens nothing will change and US citizens will continue to be screwed by their government (e.g Repeal of Glass-Steagall and the Commodities Futures Modernization Act of 2000).
