I wish we would follow their example and let the banks fail.... and make arrests!
I'm with you on that one!
Collectively, America has completely degenerated into an childish state of being. Iceland has demonstrated how adults should act. They've shown that making the right choice is not always easy, but that should not stop one from making it. All the while, we simply pretend nothing is wrong and go about our business. We're a bunch of children.
America -- the lawless rogue nation state controlled by the banksters.
We require Eva Joly to take time off from the European Parliament to come and investigate the Obama-Bush Administration and the Fed.
That GAO audit of the Fed will take entirely too long -- and we all know the end result:
The USA is simply one colossal-sized Ponzi-Tontine schem.
We are a bunch of children and they like it that way. They have dumbed down the populace to such an extent that logic doesn't make sense anymore unless it's wrapped up in a religious format and under THEIR LOGIC. Just look at the many big childish movies that have been made in the us for "family" this and family that. They have made a 21'st century version of bread and circuses for the american plebs. As long as I'm getting my govt. check or food stamps or whatever I'm satisfied. And doing this they have made a country of bullies and cowards who will bully anything that looks beneath them but will allow themselves to be robbed blind by banks and businesses and their local govt. and leaders because of this one thing.
When you are for yourself your by yourself. And a bully or child or coward can't feel by themselves because it scares them. Iceland did what they did because they people where at the end of their rope. They essentially had nothing and where taken for a ride. It may happen in the US, but we where brought up to be intolerant and childish and ignorant of things. So we may lose everything, but some idiot will think he's helping by blaming THOSE PEOPLE. In the end we will end up as a fascists thirdworld country.
Death by Bongo (bitchez, of course)
Chop dem raas!
I see the idiots are still posting doom and gloom, you should all be rich by now had you not listened to these cracks.
The perma-shill niche on this blog is already crowded with Harry and Robo in the lead.
Robo is slacking, tho. When was the last time we had massive boobies? Yeah I don't remember either so it's been at least 36 hours. We need new blood around here. The old shills are simply not pulling their weight.
Yeah but this guy can't even spell correctly one of my favorite topics, Whiskey
Sure. But you get enough whiskey down yer neck and it becomes w'iskey doesn't matter who you are.
With 'onlymyopinion' coming up strong...
We can't all be rich, jackass. It is not the case that everyone in the market can make net gains all the time.
After the CEO of failed bank Kaputhing was arrested back in May,
After the CEO of failed bank Kaputhing was arrested back in May,
LOL, very good.
Perp walks to the top of of the volcano!
its a small country 300.000 people nowhere to hide...you cannot just turn the life of people upside down and go on as usual...thats my take
Fine, but did he threaten to motherfucking kill the motherfucking police for fucking with him when he's a banker you motherfucking fucks? Bring you helmet midget fuckers cuz it is now so fucking on.
What has sex got to do with it?
And what is "on".
I am not smart enough to figure out what you are saying.
At least spell my name correctly. Droll innuendo looses a lot of it's punch when you don't pay attention to details.
Like, looses? Sorry Cougar! Otherwise quite good posting.
Not enough w'iskey is my biggest problem.
what's a little whiskey on the whiskers
Iceland arrests a fraudster banker. We in the USA arrest a guy who calls someone at the CFTC a "fucking midget." This shit can't get more bizarro.
See here in the USA we have laws against defamation based on stature, sexual orientation, race, and all that.
But fraud, not so much. You can do all the fraud you want. Just don't ever do fraud and then call anyone a midget. Even if they are. You'll get 10 to 20 in the stony lonesome for that shit, right now.
Actually it's still legal to call somebody a "fucking midget" but you should stop short of threatening to kill him. I'm not sure if it's a "hate crime" to call somebody "a fucking midget" if they are, in fact, vertically challenged. ;-)
I call mine a "fucking midget" every morning when I stand before the mirror naked.
If Jamie Dimon or Lloyd Blankfien get arrested there will be riots in the streets and the US may need to institute Marshal Law.
Not riots. Joyous celebrations!
No. Food will become unavailable, there will looting, grandmothers will be shot, dead babies, dead dolphins, puppies slaughtered for their warm fur, 100% unemployment. The world would end.
BTW how many bankers have been arrested to date for the fraud that led to the financial crisis? Oh...there must have been no fraud, my bad.
Ok. I was all for arresting those crooks until you mentioned dead dolphins and puppies. Now I'm having second thoughts. Maybe they aren't such bad guys after all.
....koala bears would go extinct, the antarctic iceshelf would collapse (polar bears would drown), and congress would need to be aroused at 10:00pm to be alerted to these events happening if Jamie and Lloyd don't get what they want.
BTW didn't the number2 at JPM just get a top spot on the Obama administration?
No polar bears in Antarctica, lotsa penguins, no bears..
...penguins will die in droves, lotsa cute penguins dead.
Yep. They won't be arrested in the US, cuz here, they do "God's work". America cloaked in religion.
That God, he's a busy one. He wins a lot of football games too, according to many of the players. I wonder how he picks which players he'll grace with his powers and why he hates the other team?
no shit, he helped auburn win a national championship, cam newton was praying all the time...that shit works (sarc)
First of all, the Good would step down to rescue its servants.
Actually, a witch-test should be made: let put them on electric chair and if they will not be rescued, so all this talks about Good's work was a scam.
If it wasn't for fixed market crony capitalism and fraud as a business model...
Jamie & Lloyd would be Amerika's Shoe Shine Boys...
Pray for monetary Armageddon, Apocalypse and a financial comet strike on New York. Sanity and an informed citizenry are just too much to hope for in the USSA.
I guess Iceland freezing over is what is required for bankers pay for their fraud. May the bankster rot in hell.
Iceland...I am a fan!
It's a great place, not even very much ice. However I understand that if you want to talk to a banker in Iceland you have to wait until the once-a-month viewing days at the local penitentiary. It's really hurt business there.
Yeah, why is all the ice in Greenland, and all the green land in Iceland?
Leif Erikson redirecting would-be colonists to green (actually, icy) Greenland was one of the first (and perhaps still greatest) real estate frauds in the Western world.
Iceland (actually green and with little ice) never got over it. Never. You do fraud in Iceland now and they kick you in the balls. And if your name happens to be Erikson they kick you in the balls twice.
And if your name happens to be Erikson they kick you in the balls twice
Correct. Then you would go on to found Blueland. Bring some ice.
And it's outta the park, folks!
if only their food were not so frightening and their language so impenetrable...I would seriously consider moving there.
Sorry, but you don't have the proper genetic code.
Their favorite foods are hot dogs and pizza. I kid you not. Americans would fit right in. As for bizarre foods, the only place I ever saw that rotten shark meat called "hakarl" that is supposed to be a local delicacy was at the bazaar next to where the cruise ships come in.
I went to see a movie in Reykjavik a few years ago and they love to crank the volume painfully loud, and make their own intermission halfway through. The movie just stops and people go out to the lobby for hot dogs, then they turn it back on after 15 minutes or so. I could get to like that after I got used to it.
