ON THE CASE!

I've been saying it all along. THis whole financial "meltdown" has been the biggest heist in farking history.

GaryPDX: Good. Go get'em.

Amen. I think this could be the one issue everyone on Fark gets behind: those biatches gotta pay.
 
2008-09-23 07:46:54 PM
GaryPDX: A lot of somebodies.

There'll be a handful of sacrificial lambs, but not nearly enough, and not nearly as deserving.
 
2008-09-23 07:48:25 PM
Plans have been established for this. Lobbyists are working overtime. Some small sheep will be slaughtered and the butcher will walk away.
 
2008-09-23 07:49:03 PM
Ah shiate.

I just bought $100 worth of Fannie and $100 worth of Freddie.

Right they'll prosecute three schlubs from accounting and a hand full of VPs. No one who actually profited the most or was actually behind the creation of the policies will get into trouble. If they do they'll "have a heart attack" like Kenneth Lay.

Where the fark is the SEC????

Hmmmm.
 
2008-09-23 07:50:56 PM
I heard Executive privilege means you don't have to cooperate.
and I don't think Bush's DoJ is going to look too hard after all they did to enable these bastards.

Hmmmm.


That's about an hour's worth.
 
2008-09-23 07:51:33 PM
They're just getting around to this now? I know shiat happens, but not $700 billion worth of shiat.
 
2008-09-23 07:52:25 PM
Lots of people need to go down on this thing.
 
2008-09-23 07:52:51 PM

I think Fannie and Freddie were exempt from SEC oversight.

No wai!
Did they finally run out of donuts at the FBI?

tonkin: I think Fannie and Freddie were exempt from SEC oversight.

Heh From an article from 2003 (new window)

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are the only two Fortune 500 companies that are not required to inform the public about any financial difficulties that they may be having. In the event that there was some sort of financial collapse within either of these companies, U.S. taxpayers could be held responsible for hundreds of billions of dollars in outstanding debts.
 
2008-09-23 07:59:36 PM
where is the obvious tag please?!!?
 
2008-09-23 07:59:37 PM
...and their leaders are all huge Republican donors, so nothing will happen to them.
 
2008-09-23 08:00:03 PM
Meh. No one will go to prison. Just a stunt to make it appear BuchCo cares. By the end, all involved will be sipping wine on their yacht laughing their asses off.

Well, except for the CEO of AIG, who turned down a 22 million severance package because of the meltdown.

Use a rubber Dude.

Who's gonna want to invest in a company under an FBI investigation?
 
2008-09-23 08:00:15 PM
What the hell is AGI?
 
2008-09-23 08:00:52 PM
AGI? My Adjusted Gross Income is being investigated for fraud?

/crap
 
2008-09-23 08:01:13 PM
good, these things turn out to be the best beach read novels.
 
2008-09-23 08:01:19 PM
AGI?!?!?!?!? Whew........at least AIG will be spared.
 
2008-09-23 08:01:22 PM
HMS_Blinkin: What the hell is AGI?

DOH! Screwed up and still got a greenlight out of the deal...

This. Any of you think the people caused this will actually pay are blind fukking idiots.

They will grab a Ken Lay or something and you'll cheer and be smug in your "justice" and that'll be that.
 
2008-09-23 08:01:44 PM
Frog march them to the farking firing line. It has to rate at least a treason charge to willfully and knowingly undermine the financial stability of the nation.

Being slathered in honey and staked out over a fire-ant hill might work too.
 
2008-09-23 08:01:52 PM
AH. There's a glimmer of hope, after all.
 
2008-09-23 08:02:37 PM
Recycled comment from someone else that I liked oh so much:

These people should be forced to spend eternity cleaning bandages in a burn ward.
 
2008-09-23 08:02:45 PM
Lehman insiders were aggressively shorting their own stock, as well as that of other financials, all the way down...
 
2008-09-23 08:02:49 PM
Why are our major financial institutions run like Ponzi schemes?
 
2008-09-23 08:03:00 PM
brifar: hey why are you dragging AGI into this.....ANAL GANGBANG INTERNATIONAL has done nothing wrong

And if they have, i don't wanna be right.
 
2008-09-23 08:03:19 PM
I've got a bad feeling about this....
 
2008-09-23 08:03:35 PM
The investigation's purpose is to turn up negative. No wrongdoing was found. After all, there was an investigation.
 
2008-09-23 08:03:37 PM
Lou Dobbs just called for a revolution when discussing this issue....lol
 
2008-09-23 08:03:55 PM
I'm shocked.

Sitting in a corner fitfully crying after being castrated by the Bush administration.

It's what the others are relying on to evade getting caught.
