    Blaming Wall Street for anything, sans Madoff and things similar, is class envy.

    I don't recall anyone suggesting the rediculous idea that Wall Street take care of the country, either.

    The alternative is to let Wall Street rise on fall on it's own and no, none of them are too big to fail.

    Bingo. None of those banks are "too big to fail." THe idea they are is what gives them incentinve to be MORE riskier.

    That's right. it's a bad idea to rely on government bureaucrats because they might be looking at skimpy schoolgirls. BE AFRAID!!!!
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    AHAHAHAH. Yes, how dare people blame wall street for anything, they're a benevolent organization full of the VERY BEST Americans, who'd never do anything bad. They'd never do something that hurts other people in the name of making money. NEVER.

    They benefit by mistakes made by idiots. Good for them. The only ones you can have an enmity towards are the Madoffs of the world.

    I'm pretty sure the men of Wall Street weren't the imbeciles making 40K a year clamoring for a loan for a 1 million dollar house. Wall Street just gave them what they wanted.

    Actually, it's painfully obvious that looking out for you is a lower priority than coming to work and ****ing off while collecting 6 figures a year.

    Government trough heads would never do anything bad, either. Eh?

    BTW, when the government ****s you over, who are you going to complain to?

    That depends on how you define "too big to fail."

    The total collapse of AIG would send ripples through the economy taking down even good companies. Their sheer amount of CDS liability in excess of their equity and assets were immense. Sure, if you think that bringing the country into total financial collapse and likely destroying the government in the process resulting in so ways anarchy, sure, that's not "too big to fail."

    But then again, only maybe a handful of people on this forum have any understanding of economics and finance and you are not one of them.
