    the MF Global ceo, coo and cfo cannot even come up wiht a BS answer as to where that $1 Billion and change is.

    However, after the 3 stooges exited stage left-

    snip-

    the biggest bombshell came after the three had left, and during the testimony of the last panel, which included CME Group CEO Terrence Duffy, CFTC Commissioner Jill Sommers and MF Global Trustee James Giddens.

    During questioning, Duffy said a fellow CME employee had told him that she had been informed that Jon Corzine knew about a loan transfer of $175 million using client money from MF Global. According to Duffy, the employee only told him this past weekend, so he did not know when he testified at the House hearing last week.

    That's a heavy statement coming from MF Global's self-designated regulatory authority (CME). This basically contradicts what Corzine has been testifying—that he "did not know" and "did not intend" any transfer of client funds.

    I think Politicians are scared to go after MF Global because Wall Street is what funds their re-election campaigns. And MF Global is just the tip of the iceberg.

    What is it about money that makes people so fucking stupid?
    Democrat/Republican whoever. I've never had the luxury of hearing money talk, yet I've handled millions in my career. Millions of other people's money. Maybe I'm the sucker for being able to account for every penny of it. Maybe that's why I'm a 99er. But damn I love my clear conscience.

    yup, another hide the salami factoid that the media won't use next year.

    if this were a rep. who did same, and you tube was as rife with obama and biden bytes lauding Corzine, once the convention ended you would not be able to go a week without some network or cnn or msnbc prgm built around that video and the gop bashing that would go along with it.

    Of the 200 million potential voters, the MSM are trying to appeal to the 100 million potential voters, who know nothing about the world outside the cobwebs of their individual wetware databases, as that is the only percentage left that doesn't want to know the truth about government and it's impact on the lives of everyone and on a global basis. They want big government to dominate. Most of them have lived in servitude much of their lives and they want to pull those that haven't, down with them. Class warfare, is their card.
