The Stinking Crooks on Wall Street

"Corruption on Wall Street can only exist under a complacent or corrupt Government."

Growing weary of the World Economic Crisis and the incompetence of President George Bush, President Elect Barack Obama hired an Honest Regulator from the First Hawaiian Bank of Hong Kong to serve as a Corruption Czar who's mission would be to find the crooks on Wall Street that were responsible for the manipulation, the corruption, the greed, the financial MESS and have them return the billions of dollars stolen from trusting investors and to administer punishment according to the extent of their sins.  Knowing that none of this would happen without instilling soome fear, breaking the code of silence and the fortress of greed and corruption, the so assigned Mr. Miyagi decided to make an example of a greedy CEO, so on a Sunday morning he brought forth CEO Dick Fuld to the courtyard of Lehman Brothers wearing only his underwear with Mr. Mayagi holding a Super Sharp Samuri Sword in his hand.  Needless to say he didn't have to use it, although many wished that he had.  Following this display, Dick Fuld wasted no time telling the truth and nothing but the truth identifying the fraudulent activiites that he and his fellow crooks had thrust upon the honest investors of America, and inorder to avoid a fate that he deserved, Dick Fuld agreed to return his Golden Parachute Bonuses, to clear out his Offshore Secret Bank Accounts and to personally Supervise the return of the 700 Billion Dollars that he and the other crooks on Wall Street had acquired.  He also agreed that he should serve an appropriate prison term for the blessing of still having his head attached to his body.

"Where are the investigations, the inquiry's, the trials and the prison terms?   Will honest and inquiring news reporting be forthcoming?"

Ahhh, the greed and corruption have indeed tremendous consequences and it is necessary to put an end to such criminal behaviour. It is terrible!

May true enlightenment of the governments bring transparency and justice.

Love,
Margherita

LOL, enjoyed visualizing your Mr Miyagi's truth telling techniques. Now if only REAL consequences would be forth coming.
I personally feel GWB is as big a crook as any of the Wall Street and Corporate CEO's gangsters, and should be held accountable for what he has done to this country. Instead, they all seem to walk away patting each other on the back, laughing at us.

The 'crooks of Wall Street' (and the banking and oil industries; etc.) should be filling the cells right next to G.W. Bush(wacker)!

Yo James,

Money, and the easy life is tempting.  I'd never be the one to cast the first stone.

You have certainly unearthed a can of worms with this one James and sad to say greed affects all society and it has never been any different. A very thought provoking write my friend. Take care.

I share you anger, James. God has an economic plan for us. "Thou shall not steal". When our nation turns away from God we will reap a terrible reward. We each have a responsibility toward every person in our society. I volunteer  with the food bank and the local soup kitchen. The people that need our help did not bring this situation on themselves. They have mental problems. They barely survive. And yet we have these fat cats in our society who steal from us incredible amounts of money.
