Regulators and/or FBI need to swoop in and put the seal tape on stuff

banksters are destroying democracy and our way of life, i issue the following call to action: we need to immediately reinstate glass-stegall, implement volcker rule and torture any banksters who refuse to spill the beans. we need to use rico to go after criminal organizations such as goldman sachs, morgan stanley, ubs deutchbank fannie freddie etc.

financial crimes are the most under handed of all crimes and affect the public in far more ways than other types of crimes. time to take a stand

Part of the problem with Glass-Stegall was that it was itself a compromise that eventually allowed it to be simply dropped.  We need to have it back sure, but on steroids.  But to go beyond that we need law that says the only contracts that are enforceble are those that exchange a service or good for legal tender in full.  Period.  And I hate it because it essentially is what the fascist rightwingers want, but it has become abundantly clear that where money and credit are concerned greed wins every single time.  The only to live without parasites and this horrifying unequal distribution of wealth is to end fiat and credit, one in the same by the way.  I will say that none of you will like the tax structure in that world, but we will all be happier in some ways.  I for one plan to grow a bit of pot ans stop worrying about everything so much.

FIat and credit are one and the same, now there's a thought to ruminate on as I settle in for the night.  Good luck with your plan, though I think in the long run cognitive behavioral coping strategies tend to yield better results than substance based coping strategies.

Right. Like Holder swooped in on Solyndra. This is a top-to-bottom 2-Party Kleptocracy. Last night a severe dream-nightmare woke me bolt upright. I was driving down a road in one of the states where the TSA Gestapo is now randomly pulling over motorists for pat-downs and etc. Up ahead I saw a bunch of these ZOG thugs doing up a woman and peeling panels off of her car. A quick twitch of the steering wheel and sharp acceleration, and I got 4 or 5 of them before their Highway Patrol cover got me. This is how it will begin, like that guy in Tunisia who set off the Arab Spring....not those clowns in Zucker-whatever Park waving signs around.

Seeking Alpha just posted "Regulators are investigatingwhether MF Global (MF) diverted as much as $700M from segregated customer accounts to support its trades as the company teetered, according to sources. A major no-no, it's possible this is what nixed a desperate effort by MF to sell itself to Interactive Brokers"

A definite major no-no that should be leading to some jail time.

Maybe, maybe. But one should not forget that US citizens are duplicitous at heart.

They might as well be reproached with very little and are using that stage to appear as victims. Victimology is high among US citizens. Bankers might use that platform to appear as victims of the odious monster state that prevents everyone including banks from doing honest and sane US style business.

Or they might have stuff to be reproached with but not that big and by pushing for high expectation,( US citizens love propaganda, marketing, hype), they might get away with what they have done because well, US citizens expected so much more, and petty sins have to be forgiven. They are caring Christians.

Never underestimate US citizen duplicity.

WSJ is saying the same thing:

"But as the due-diligence process intensified, Interactive Brokers executives became concerned about MF Global's capital levels, according to people familiar with the matter. The worries centered on the amount of customer funds held on deposit by MF Global, with Interactive Brokers identifying what it felt were substantial discrepancies, people familiar with the matter said.

The difference was roughly $900 million, these people said, though one person added that the figure was a "moving target."

"They still don't have it figured out" this person said."

Looks like tax payers will be on the hook to bail out Corzine's mess through SIPC.

Probably another Madoff and the govt. regulators have looked the other way all these years.  I have not doubt that serious crimes were committed.  I also have no doubt that no one will go to jail for them either.  It will be... "oh, well", just like Enron and so on.  They protect the stop and screw the people who they have lied to for years.
