These guys are so incompetent.  They can't even kill themselves.  Can it really be that hard?

johnQpublic's picture

no shit

better luck next time on that suicide attemp

we are pulling for his future success


Roy Bush's picture

Hopefully there will be a time whern they won't even have the option to kill themselves. 

SheepRevolution's picture

Perhaps there is no printing press for fiat money in hell, so he changed his mind and decided to stay alive?

skistroni's picture

He should have hired one of the "investors" in his company to do the job. It would be less costly and most of all, effective.

Troll Magnet's picture

at least the guy still had some conscience to admit his misdeeds and shortcomings.  where the fuck is corzine?

whstlblwr's picture

His 'ego was too big to admit failure' so he says it's the reason he cheated. Why does this sound too familiar? Across the board it is happening in the world. No upstanding guys around. Where are heroes for us to look up to? All slimy politicians and corporate whores. Even Ron Paul runs over his supporters for cash. You think he quits the race and holds on to his supporter list. His words were right, but his actions...sleezeball.

This country needs a good cleaning out. Anyone not involved in local elections and local work needs to get off your ass now.

More and better funded regulation surely would have caught him.

Not if it's funded by him

 "Later in the signed statement..."

That suggests to me that this is NOT as claimed, a "Full PFG CEO Suicide Note". Sloppy journalism.

OK, the guy fucked up big time but you gotta admit one thing.

He has big fucking balls.

We are good on fraud! Just look below.

Syria's army ambushed and prevented the massacre

13. July 2012

Dmitry Glushach


Terrorist groups were planning to commit the massacre in the village Tarmisa, a suburb of Hama. As a result of the radio communication intercept, Syrian security forces staged their ambush. 122 terrorists were killed and 40 were taken prisoners. The civilian massacre was averted. Corrupt Western media was ready for the civilian massacre information dump but there were problems. Now, they have pictures of dead terrorists portrayed as massacred civilians. Below are photo of CIA/Mossad mercenaries before and after the ambush.



Sorry, ZeroHedge is not allowing to paste pictures.

Very good to know he has at least one admiring fan out there.  Just a poor victim of circumstances, totally beyond his control.  Actually, it's  mostly the fault of those that deposited funds in his enterprise; they are at least partly complicit.  Maybe you could be a character reference for him at trial.  Yours would be the "big fucking balls" testimonial.  Gotta be worth something, eh?

Harlequin001's picture

Niot only 'big fucking balls' but a shit load of other people's money.

Hardly a mitigating factor...

"More and better funded regulation surely would have caught him."

Maybe you didn't read all the way to the end of his note..."and regulators accepted them without question."...regulators are mostly in rubber stamping & processing mode...that will never change.

On the bright side, his trial will be short ;-)

Bingo!  None of this matters until TPTB realize that he did not grease the appropriate wheels necessary to ignore this mess and it becomes obvious that he could be displayed on MSM as a poster boy to prove graham-dodd really works

runlevel's picture

the fuck are you talking about?

whstlblwr's picture

In the PFG suicide note he tells us his ego is too big for failure. That's the fuck I'm talking about.

Bernanke's ego is too big for failure, all the fucking banker's egos are too big. They all fucking failed. Obama failed. Instead of manning up they're throwing all of us under the fucking bus.

And if you're referring to the RP comment. Wake the fuck up. The guy sold us out.

edit: I'm still going to Tampa mostly to meet others there to plan for the future. Definitely not sending his campaign money. Is it the worst campaign in the world or what? The minute it looks like he wins, he cancels his campaign and asks for money. Can't make that shit up.

Very clever RP bashing there friend.

You know who your true friends are: The ones who kick you in the head when you are down.

Out raising money for Obama.

Cheesy Bastard's picture

I guess his ego wasn't too big to admit failure at suicide.

nmewn's picture

White collar criminals are a funny sort...they can do immense damage year after year and their conscience never seems gets to them...as they are not the ones being damaged.

The uncomplicated thought of sticking a .357 in his mouth never occured to him I guess...why, that might cause himself some real damage and ruin the bedroom paint job.

If he happens to get put in ass pounding prison with a cell mate who lost his house a year or two ago and made one bad decision to stick up a convience store and he relates his multiple bad decisions to this cell mate (who I assume could be, otherwise, as ethically upright as you or I) he may get a real life lesson.

I almost hate to wish that upon this poor schmuck, given corizine still walks free, but failure to keep accounts segregated should result in the worst outcome currently possible

Widowmaker's picture

I sure as fuck don't.  These faggots in pinstripes pacing in ivory towers want nothing more than fuck you over and destroy all that is not theirs (in the name of "economic growth").  

Internal policies, regulatory rules, laws, ethics, morals and common decency are totally meaningless in their world of racketeering and pilfering common man.

ZH posters by in large are completely clueless how life works "at the top."     

You are nothing but meat that they self-serve to themselves and then grind up and serve rotten to some other poor fuck.

The more faggot-banker blood on the pavement the better.



zhandax's picture

We are in complete agreement.  The essence of what I was trying to express is that hanging some ass-hat in a cornstalk tower in Iowa out to dry simply allows the pols a talking point that they 'did something' while expressly allowing the thieves in the real ivory towers of Manhattan to walk free.  I am offended that the pols get some credit while completely avoiding addressing the real problem created by the same criminals who pay said pols.

There may be hope, maybe he's a ZH reader.

I wouldn't really want to buy his futures – can't have that many left.

grid-b-gone's picture

If they'd just employ some robo-whackers for $15 per hour, they could hit their targets.

monoloco's picture

As soon as he recovers, he should be hanged.

torak's picture

We can only hope he is a role for the rest of the pond scum in the financial world.  Perhaps they can get it right.

Debtless's picture

Repost, since I care that much.

I offer my marksmanship expertise to any and all banksters/politicians/plain old assholes who wish to off themselves properly.

Services guaranteed.

HungrySeagull's picture

That would be something I understand as well.

The fatal T being the word.

Desert Irish's picture

If you REALLY intended to kill yourself......now he can claim depression and all manner of ills that some money grubbing shrink and laywer will be all over....

azzhatter's picture

I believe the old saying is nobody "tries" to commit suicide. You either do it or it's fake.

MeBizarro's picture

Plenty of people try to commit suicide and are unsuccessful for a variety of reasons. 

MeBizarro's picture

You can post a simple fact on here that isn't even debateable (most suicide attempts fail) and yet it gets a massive amount of thumbs down for some reason on here. 

Desert Irish's picture

3 down votes are massive!! you get more for grammatical errors here.......harden the fuck up

Cugel's picture

Ease up on him. He's already failed at suicide.

Welcome to ZH, where the readers have no logic and are incapable of simple reasoning. 


akak's picture

So then what keeps you hanging around here, you abrasive and arrogant Eurotrash asswipe?

prole's picture

I heard he's here strictly for the blobbing

Debtless's picture

You might be better off hanging out at Marketwatch.

With all the thin-skinned cunts over there. Just sayin'.

Itch's picture

The most incompetent guy i ever knew successfully killed himself. A belt around the door, made sure the door was locked, threw up the rope and away he went. Nothing to it logistically, just takes a lot of nerve. If someone wants to die they will get their wish, most attempts are cries for help though. If this guy wanted to die, he would have gone to a secluded place and went quietly. These big pantomime gestures are suspect, maybe his lawyer put him up to it, who knows.

smiler03's picture

+1 You're an endangered species here.

Widowmaker's picture

You are rigtht, King-faggot Paulson's TARP was a cry for help.

Then the first paid were all the fraud fuckups with record bonuses out of your future covering up their fraud Inc worldwide.

So, what you are saying is a belt above a door is a bunch of pussies crying to fuck everyone else over when they locked themselves in and YOU get hung..

"Plenty of people try to commit suicide and are unsuccessful for a variety of reasons."

I'll go along with that. When I was younger I tried to fornicate myself to death. No dice.

Now I'm trying to drink myself to death with the same result.

I blame Lisa, Laura, Rose, Jackie, Beth, Tanya, Patty, Patti, Christine, and Jack Daniels for my current state of animation.

Mr. PFG, that pathetic bastard, is just looking for sympathy.
