    Would you do the mortgage fraud in 2008 if you had the chance of sitting as CEO of Goldman Sachs or something receiving bonuses on the cost of the people?

    Personally I would, I'm a greedy evil guy who deserve to get killed I guess :D But come on, millions and millions of dollars, my kids can graduate and my mother could retire etc etc. I would let the americans pay some extra taxes for bailouts to have that.

    Actually I admire "Wall Street" for outsmarting the rest of the people, I mean they actually succeeded and they walk away with our money legally. Really intelligent people in a way.

    No.

    I can see why someone would, but your reasoning is incorrect. Wall Street didn't outsmart anyone. If you leave a bunch of monkeys in a cage with knifes expecting no one to get hurt, then you are an idiot. However, when you come back to the cage later and half the monkeys are dead, it doesn't mean that they outsmarted you.

    The financial meltdown is more akin to someone driving off a cliff in the fog having realized long ago s/he should slow down but hubris preventing him/her from doing so.

    that is why the sec under Bush never implemented the parts of GLBact about brokers.

    Most people wouldnot have done it.

    That was done so the banks could hire and train their own brokers only enough to sell the securities and not enough to really know their value.

    How many went to jail?

    Republicans say as long as it's legal, it's OK.

    And Wall Street hires the best Republican politicians money can buy to make sure it's legal.

    What are "ethics"? Who cares?

    How much money has Soros made? It's his game. The puppet master rules.

    Too funny.

    Spare me.

    I have beyond a true file on the man. Soros is the epitome of one of the most disgusting puppetmasters on the planet.

    When he linked up with Ayers and Bernie to back Bam Bam well even Hillary knew all was lost.

    I know your side very well.
