Comments on: Corzine’s disgrace http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2013/06/27/corzines-disgrace/ 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: feudi http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2013/06/27/corzines-disgrace/comment-page-1/#comment-47548 Tue, 02 Jul 2013 17:31:30 +0000 https://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=22167#comment-47548 Whoa…Corzine is the “smartest man in America when it comes to the economy” or so Joe Biden and Barack Obama said during the 2008 election. WHY isn’t this creep in jail with Robert Rubin and Jaime Dimon?

Instead of facing the truth, they grasp at straws. Ig you dig deep enough into corporate failures, you will always find some sort of wrong-doing, especially accounting fraud. It’s human nature.

I hope it’s not the former, because it certainly sounds like you have reviewed some other evidence to come to a conclusion, rather than simply accepted an interested party’s view of some ambiguous evidence.

But because he is a Democrat and closely associated with the unimpeachable Barack Obama, he escapes the moral and ethical outrage that should rightly fall upon him. Thanks Felix for keeping this story alive. Let’s hope justice is served.

In a just world he would be dragged out into the street and shot like a rabid dog or some other destructive menace.

The idea that we have the death penalty for the relatively small stakes of killing an individual person, and even for slightly lesser crimes, but don’t have it for destroying billions of dollars through active malfeasance is a joke.

If ever there was a reason to bring back the gibbet or stockade this is it. Someone who had every advantage in life, and used that to make the world a much worse place and undermined trust in the financial sector permanently.

If the most hands on, call-the-shots CEO in the industry can so clearly and blatantly brush the black and white securities rules aside then there is no reason to even have any rules. String him up and take his money!
