His name is R. Budd Dwyer.

He blew his brains out on national TeeVee ... and did it over a lot less than what goes on now seemingly everyday.




In the long run, R. Budd was a good man. He failed with panache. We could use a few more like R. Budd Dwyer.

Then there should be no impediment, since Obama's administration is functionally equivalent to a third term for George W. "Chimpy" Bush.

No more rule of law = no one is going to jail.  I will take the under of no jail time. 

BTW, good to hear that Rubes is still involved in the top economic team.  Phew, I was really worried there but now I feel much better as to how this is going to unfold.

No way Corzine is going to go to jail.

He'll get off somehow by pulling some strings and blaming somebody else.

He's a member of the top of the top of the PigMen/Plutocrat regime.

I understand completely the bitter expectation of the playing dumb strategy working well for Corzine. But he may actually end up in jail, I think. Comingling is really a fundamental no-no and it is also a sin easy to comprehend: either you took the clients' money or you did not. Even former Goldmanites at the SEC and people in Congress can understand that. 

Now, one other thing I would like to know is whether the $1.2bn of bond debt held by JPM is held in its own name or as administrator for its clients.

Corzine sure is one massive MF'er.

He deserves hard time in a pound me in the ass prison, but he'll most likely be found innocent and given some job in the Fed/Government.

Wall St. CEO's are like Hollywood Moguls.

The more spectacular the failure..

The more they are wanted by other firms.

Just look at guys like M. Night Shyalaman.  Huge Hollywood bombs, one after another.

Yet he's always at the top of the list of getting hired to direct the next big film.

TD in this post has about a 70 percent masculine 30 percent feminine energy composition.

Robot Trader in this post has about a 60 percent feminine 40 percent masculine energy composition and his energy composition still matches robotrader.

TD has a tight highly focuses crown chakra. Robot Trader has a crown chakra that looks like a fisting porn video.

And robert downey jr is dead.


It's only a 3mb video your dialup should handle it in about 12 minutes. It is worth the wait.
