Comments on: Corzine’s tone-deaf statement http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/11/04/corzines-tone-deaf-statement/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Acharn http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/11/04/corzines-tone-deaf-statement/comment-page-1/#comment-32814 Mon, 07 Nov 2011 05:18:55 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=10943#comment-32814 I wonder why we don’t see any reference to the fact that Corzine has to have committed at least one felony, and probably many? Certainly as the CEO of MF Global he was required by Sarbanes-Oxley to certify personally that they had adequate accounting controls. The missing money is incontrovertible proof that they didn’t, and the nice thing is that the prosecutor doesn’t have to prove intent to defraud.

Americans seem to make a big deal about this, but nobody else in the world can tell them apart.

If the parties were represented in an animated cartoon, which would be Beavis?

Then keep in mind that Chuck Schumer, the DEMOCRATIC Senator from New York, is one of the biggest protectors of Wall Street in the Senate.

And lastly, keep in mind that it was Bill Clinton, a DEMOCRATIC President, who signed the repeal of Glass-Stegal into law.

It’s easy to blame the GOP for what’s happened, and they do bear a significant portion of the blame for the lack of regulation of Wall Street. But it’s not like the Democratic Party is blameless either.

Small government, regulation lite, a congress lead by money interest only.

So please let’s not surprised when it shows its ugly head.

They are our “nobility” exempt from the laws that apply to commoners. So…not very surprising.

The statement was drafted in its entirety by lawyers, and reviewed by other lawyers. An apology may be interpreted as self-incrimination. I’m no lawyer, so if I’m wrong, please correct me.
