    I voted yes, being an optomist about the American public. Once Wall Street finds out that we don't trust them with our money anymore, they will clean up their act....

    No, his sentencing isn't until April, but he can receive up to 150 years. We can safely assume, especially since he's in his 70s, that any sentence he receives will be a life sentence.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    This is entirely for selfish reasons, but I'm praying that we see a massive increase in white collar prosecutions, SEC investigations, securities fraud claims, etc. ****, throw in some RICO claims while we're at it.

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    As heartless as the PRC may be, it does have a pretty good idea about executing white collar criminals.
