As long as we stand for it, we'll be subverted by rats.
In a fair world, people would be able to rob banks, then offer to return 1% of the money in exchange for the dropping of all charges without admitting the robber did anything wrong.
Hell, yes...and that way, at least some of the money would end up in PEOPLE's hands...
I hope the state AGs do settle. It will hasten the revolution.
Where is nine inch Spitzer when we need him? He fined Pauly Walnuts and tha boys $1.4 Billion in 2002 for some stupid IPO pumping. He would have these bankstas begging, begging, to pay $100 Billion to be left alone.
Why do you think they got him?
+10 Why yes, they took him out while Wallstreet gives us the CNBC whores for Jamie Dimon drewing over him on air.
Who gets to do him first, Michelle, Melisa or Karen. What a Pig Show. At least Bloomberg has class.
Thinking about this a bit more. So who gets to do Lord Blackass, (Blankfein). Big Ben or Tiny Tim. Interesting. Hmmmm.
4 inch Spitzer was thoroughly neutered...
The Eunuch Spitzer can now be seen pontificating on TeeVee...
Revolution? Funny. I bet 99% of the population don't even know what the banks did. They'll be happy that the banks had to fork over $5 billion and the state AG's will run for re-election with this "victory" under their belts.
I wouldn't say only 1% are aware, probably more like 4 or 5%. As for the rest of what you said, unfortunately I find myself in whole-hearted agreement.
If there is a positive note, a revolution can be started once 15-20% critical mass is achieved. Naturally, trying to achieve that mass in the current amerikan societal landscape of iGadget idiot-box cheetos junkies is something of a 'challenge'.
(Oh, who am I kidding! We're freakin' doomed!)
How come government and banks get to practice looting lawlessness while we get our ass kicked?
Perhaps battered wife's syndrome is in fashion these days and American's just likes to have the living shit kicked out of them over and over and over and over again and again and again and again...
They run the nation. President has nothing to do about any of this stuff.
Did I say run the nation. My Bad....... They ruin the nation. One household at a time.
Yes! And bank tards have our best interest at hand. We are so screwed people. Not proud to be an american some days. The market is bat shit crazy.
That guy from FFT is oz is good, I been following him for a while and he called the market crash in 2008.
I belong to his membership site, its awesome and has live videos and everything to follow along.
Makes it easy to take money from the market even if you are a newbie!.
His new monthly trading club is opening tomorrow, and over at :-

"Banks are less likely to sign off on any deal that doesn't provide a broad release of claims from state attorneys general in the most populous states."
OK, so let them refuse to sign and let's take this thing to court. Why are we not ok with that?
Whom do you mean with "we"?
Exactly, Jail First. Compensation after. Just like Bernie Madoff. Bernie needs a angel doing God's work.
Please...................................................Somebody............But his ass in Jail with Bernie.
They are going to push people too much.. And then there will be absolutely no going back... Why they don't see that danger is beyond me..
Ask the elite Parisians from 1796. This current crop is no smarter or more sophisticated (or are imbued with less hubris) than they, so of course they don't 'see it coming'.
Then again, they didn't have French Idol and McPierre's back then to keep the rabble occupied.
Yeah, but they had plenty of cake.

What danger plagues your house m'lord?
Too big to fail!
Too big to fine???? What?
"Fine" now simply stands for "price to ignore laws".
Right. Kind of like membership dues in the Masters of the Universe Club.
Tax-deductable via monetization too. Pay first, get it back afterwards at the next bailout.
Yep, it's a joke alright. And the joke is on us sheeple.
over 28 million views and counting...go viral
This version is far superior.
10k views vs. 28 million....ya OK...you stay there
the financial collapse won't be pretty
So you judge the quality of a video only by the number of views it has?
You must think that Fred is high quality also.
and just as good http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=viYdHvYM6ao
and the above video is from 2007 before the financial crisis and includes the line 'Wall street crime will never send you to the slammer'.
This shit has gotta be stopped.
Big criminals never pay it's the law of the jungle- our bankers wrote it and bought it in the courts and congress..don't like it too bad.
It's time to rise up and protest this gross injustice
Go for it dude. Protest it!
If you do, prepare to get attacked viciously on these pages by those who favor austerity for everyone but the banker-gangsters who have brought the economic system to its knees.
I comprehend that whenever people take to the streets to protest their legitimate grievances, and it's covered on ZeroHedge, the Keyboard Cowboys come out in force.
What "downwithbanks" is alluding too here are the
threads concerning the Wisconsin Public workers
Several posters took the position that it was
entirely possible that a 160K salary for a bus
driver, a job whose barrier to entry is about 30
minutes of practice in an empty parking lot,paid
for by 40K/yr taxpayers MIGHT be something
considered excessive. It was also concluded that
this salary doesn't exist in the private sector
thus lending credibility to the idea that SOME
of the public sector workers are overpaid as a
result of union power and threats. An
idea that caused apoplectic fits by "downwithbank
It was also pointed out that Public Sector workers
are paid by taxpayers, NOT out of the personal funds
of Bankers. Thus lending credibility to the idea
that ZH posters can be against both bankers AND
the concept of overpaid gov't workers. THAT is
what is sticking in the craw of "downwithbanks"
and is responsible for his inability to get past
the Wisconsin Public Union meme. He finds it
inconsistent to question the high salary of a taxpaid
bus driver as well as the billion dollar bonus of
a taxpaid banker. go figure.
Attorneys and Banksters lying together.
Let's chill out. Hate everything that is happening in the world today but one of my favs: Note that I don't recommend going awal as a trading strategy but, wtf:
How many dollars CENTS per fraudulent title is that ?!?
Nobody will care. Carry on.
It really too bad states are that desperate for cash that they'd settle for this amount. Banks know it too. This is worse than TARP!
I think $500 billion is more like it. We're long overdue to send the banks a crystal clear message that the game is over.
Why don't they just threaten to crash the market again? Extort me bitchez!
