    Bankers or Criminals?

    Secret and Lies of the Bailout | Politics News | Rolling Stone

    Secret and Lies of the Bailout
    "It has been four long winters since the federal government, in the hulking, shaven-skulled, Alien Nation-esque form of then-Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, committed $700 billion in taxpayer money to rescue Wall Street from its own chicanery and greed. To listen to the bankers and their allies in Washington tell it, you'd think the bailout was the best thing to hit the American economy since the invention of the assembly line. Not only did it prevent another Great Depression, we've been told, but the money has all been paid back, and the government even made a profit. No harm, no foul – right?Wrong."

    This is a lengthy read, but a real eye opener. Do yourself a favor and read it.

    Are all bankers crooks?

    Were we honestly advised by our gov't officials?

    Is it too late to prosecute?

    The Federal Reserve CORPORATION increased its deposits over $1 trillion as a result, are they part of the deception?

    Does the $1.4 trillion deposited in the FED allow them to lend $14 Trillion to purchase US Treasuries?

    The rich have been feeding off the poor, while sending jobs overseas. Because of this we increasingly see the poor feeding of the rich, in order to survive.

    By their very nature I think bankers are in a group that contains prostitutes, lawyers, and other highly selfish and money-grubbing people. Prosecuted? Show us their exact crimes, and mete out punishment in accordance to the laws.

    That was one of the biggest reasons for initiating this poll. It does show some criminal wrongdoing and its' facilitators. Looks like the facilitators all got lpromotions or made "clean" getaways, unless, we the people find a way to prosecute.

    if they broke the law, then they should be prosecuted.

    if they managed to seriously hurt our economy without breaking any laws, then that's an area ripe for regulation. i'd prefer to see regulation, as that helps make future crashes less likely.

    Re: Bankers or Criminals?

    Should "citizens" start a petition demanding prosecution and get enough signatures that a Federal level comment is necessary? Is that foolish, or practical? Sounds about like the "torture" deal and nothing will happen.
