    I was expecting a few boring candidate statements of the U.S. Senate - AKA the World's Most Exclusive Club - but, boy, was I wrong. Just take a look at some of these gems.

How about banning both from receiving severance and prosecuting them!

-Michael Clayton in Jon Corzine's kitchen- Scene

Michael Clayton:   I don't know what Walter promised you but...

Jon Corzine:   A miracle worker. That's Walter on the phone twenty minutes ago. Direct quote, okay, "Hang tight, I'm sending you a miracle worker."

Michael Clayton:   Well he misspoke.

Jon Corzine:  About what? That you're the firms fixer? Or that you're any good at it?
[explodes in anger] This shit is complicated, and when you make as much as I do from connections, you tend to lose the penchant and drive to monitor the ethical, legal, moral & most basic of details, okay?  These clients are all greedy f**cks, alright, and they shouldn't have expected to swim with sharks without getting bitten! This is America, now, Michael! We don't have firms that make things of value, we only have firms that shift things of value, as in from your pocket to mine, got it! How the hell are greedy pricks like me with aspirations going to get what we need to satisfy our unrelenting voraciousness if we can't bend the rules from time to time, even if there's collateral damage?

Jon Corzine:   What if someone had stolen my master password at MF Gloal? Huh? Happens all the time.

Michael Clayton:   The FBI likes client fraud & commingling of funds cases. They work them hard and they clear them fast. Right now there's a coffee slurping FBI forensic acccounting team pouring over MF Global Accounts. Tomorrow they're going to be fingering each and every person who had their finger in the pie, including Obama "bundlers."
[the phone rings]

Michael Clayton:   There's no play here. There's no angle. There's no champagne room. I'm not a miracle worker, I'm a janitor. The math on this is simple. The smaller the mess the easier it is for me to clean up.

Jon Corzine:  [points to the phone] That's the FBI isn't it?

Michael Clayton:   No. They don't call.

Great movie. Tom Wilkinsons characters' monologue at the start sums it up.

And Clooney's last few lines are apt :

"youre fucked"
"youre so fucked"

Are you so f**king blind that you don't even see what I am? I sold out Arthur for 80 grand and a three year contract. I'm the easiest part of your problem and you're gonna kill me?

Karen was extremely book smart, but pathetically stupid, just like The Bernank.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The lead regulator investigating the collapse of Jon Corzine's securities firm, MF Global, worked alongside him for 18 years at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. The two later collaborated to pass a law intended to prevent accounting scandals...

I was fired as a teenager once for giving the wrong change.  $1.20 too little. (I guess working three jobs caught up with me)


To think, I could have been a great Wall Street tycoon.

andrew ross sorkin suspects the money is just "lost".  It could have been a "fat finger".

"protecting a criminal enterprise (fellow "jews)"

I am reminded of the verse in the Apocalypse that says  

"I know the slander of those who say they are jews and are not"

Robert Anton Wilson points out in Illuminatus Trilogy that to conspire means to "breathe together".  Same Nitrous Oxide?


On the other hand, the West Bank and Gaza are full of people who are genetic Jews, but aren't.

The Hope, the change, the reality of it all.

Now we know why Corzine had a clause to let him take gov positiosn. In gov, he could do much more damage to the economy, and still have a gov pension. Just like the Bamster:)
