    Perhaps, hence why the motive to break them up before they get that big does have merit.
    You're an idiot who thinks he knows what the hell is going in the financial sector. You don't. Breaking up the big banks would be punishing success. Furthermore, big banks have big advantages to the consumer.

    The housing crisis started this mess, you buffoon.

    Depends on how they got their "success".....and I have seen big banks take advantage of the consumer. I have an elderly neighbor that was ripped off big time by his bank, talking him into converting a fixed interest IRA account to an annuity that is not in an IRA. He paid a lot of taxes that he didn't plan on, and won't live long enough to benefit from an annuity. He is already 85....

    Is there another alternative?
    Why are you relying on "Wall Street" to do anything? Most of them simply acted in their own rational self-interest; that's hardly surprising.

    How many employees were involved in this 'issue'?

    What are you mad at them for, exactly!? I can't tell you how many times I've asked people: Who is "Wall Street" and why are you mad at them?

    I've received nothing but vague, nonsensical answers that are just inane platitudes. Hopefully you can buck that trend.

    It isn't rational self interest when you manipulate the market to enable the theft of money that belongs to someone else....

    More vague and meaningless platitudes.

    Define for me the following terms: Manipulate, the market, theft of money.

    Who, specifically, did these things and how did they do it? Please, explain it to me, and be as specific as possible.

    Nothing vague about it.
    You want specifics and details? Watch network news....

    How many have to be involved in order to categorize it as an "issue"?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    You can't answer the questions. No surprise there.

    Anyone else want to give it a shot? I'd love for someone to explain how "Wall Street" can do anything, let alone steal people's money.
