I guess some people misunderstand when I talk about stopping or jailing bankers.
They think I am referring to their personal loan officer at the branch downtown or down the street. Well if down the street is Manhattan, maybe, or if your checking account is with an outfit like Deutschebank or Goldman Sachs. I’m talking about people collecting the bailout bonus money while making unconscionable, reprehensible decisions and trades at the corporate and international level…who profit off financial failures and seek favors from the state to protect themselves legally and financially. That person I want to see endure hardship and reversal of fortune the way so many of us have. I want them to go down and not recover their empires. So I’m not talking about your golfing buddy or neighbor most likely.
