    "Washington - Global banking giant Citigroup has agreed to pay $285 million to settle charges that it misled investors about a complex financial instrument tied to the now-crippled housing market, the Securities and Exchange Commission said Wednesday.

    "The announcement was unlikely to satisfy critics of Wall Street and Washington's bailout of its banks who've waited years for any major Wall Street executive to be jailed for practices that led to the global financial meltdown in 2008, which still roils the U.S. economy."

    For those keeping score (like Bernie Sanders) Wall Street banks have now paid a total of one billion dollars in SEC enforcement actions.

    For those still clueless about what OWS wants...

    "The details (of this case) are the face of the problem that brings Occupy Wall Street protestors to the streets. We have theft from actual people. In the end these are pension fund beneficiaries ... it's clear we know the names of the perpetrators, and yet these people are apparently not heading to jail."

    Ole Bernie is the one person who speaks up for the middle class. The rest of them hate the middle class.

    I'm not saying replace it at all. But it is INARGUABLE. Nobody can argue, NOBODY can ARGUE the fact that corruption is rampant on wall street. How to fix it I dont know. Its the best system out there (I think), BUT there are people making millions at the EXPENSE OF THE MIDDLE CLASS. Those are irrefutable facts.

    So what would you do about it? Besides whine, of course.
