New York Fed Chief Levels Explosive Charge Against Big Banks

New York Fed Chief Levels Explosive Charge Against Big Banks

“"Tens of billions" in fines is not a sufficient deterrent, because that is lunch money to these people. It's only a tiny fraction of their profits. Prison sentences are needed, in order to effect change.”

“Exactly! If "corporations are people too, my friend", then why aren't they going to jail for their crimes?”

“Wow, big surprise... the Saudis want America to do their dirty work again? Stop the presses! The other day, MSN reported that "Bandar Bush" (Prince Bandar bin Sultan al-Saud) who is now head of the Saudi intelligence agency, was trying to topple the Assad regime "behind the scenes". He got his nickname Bandar Bush because he was so close to the Bushes he was "like one of the family". He "mentored" two Bush presidents through 3 different gulf wars. Now he wants to offer the same "assistance" to President Obama. With friends like Bandar, who needs enemies?”

“Many many liberal NYC Democrats like myself are perfectly ready to vote for a lesbian mayor of New York City... just not Christine Quinn, though.

I don't think the quote is a dig at Christine Quinn's sexual orientation, although it can probably be spun that way.”

“I'm sure Fox News will be keenly interested in the results of this lawsuit, since they also edit material in order to make a point, all the time. What if this is the first step in getting Fox News to clean up their act? That would be cool.”

opposablethumbs on Dec 7, 2012 at 03:46:20

“I would like to see fox clean up their act. I think the best chance of that would be a law like the Canadians have.

Sorry to disappoint you -- but it's extremely unlikely this civil action will go anywhere. It's such a bad case for Zimmerman if it was me, it would not have been worth drafting the motions.”

“I'm a liberal and I believe tactics like this are counter-productive. Not just ineffective, but actually counter-productive. You've just alienated tons of mild-mannered people in the general public who might have been allies, if you didn't just present yourselves as a bunch of lunatics. Guess what, now Boehner can appear to be a hero to his voting base, by ignoring you or even worse, voting directly against your goals.”

ADRealist on Nov 27, 2012 at 20:00:46

“If an extremely small number of protestors (7) using an unusual tactic to draw people's attention towards the Aide's epidemic is enough to "prove them to be a bunch of lunatics" and "turn people off to supporting it*the men, women, and children all over the world dieing of Aides") then apparently American's are even more shallow and hopeless than I believed.”

“Bush and Cheney (and the neocons now advising Romney) destabilized that region, when we decimated Iraq. That's another reason invading Iraq was a huge disaster for the US (besides the trillions of taxpayer dollars that were wasted, and all the unnecessary death and chaos). Who won the US/Iraq war? Iran did.”

“It's beginning to look pathological, like it's SO deeply ingrained a habit that it's now out of his conscious control.

People who have been allowed to get away with repeated lying for some reason - in this case, extreme wealth and power, just don't get it that there should any price to pay for it. For some especially dishonest people, lying is actually a mental disorder. That's what it's starting to look like here.”

“You are correct that Pelosi is a top fundraiser, but wrong about Pelosi's skills. Pelosi is great at her job. She's also smart as a whip. She's an effective communicator (I've never seen her flub a media appearance. If it's happened, I'm not aware of it). There's a reason she's still in charge of the Dem caucus, even after they lost their majority in 2010: because she is absolutely effective, and well-liked by a broad coalition of Congressional Dems.”

keithdengenis on Sep 4, 2012 at 04:31:10

“Having met Mrs. Pelosi - and, seen her in operation - she is really good in the First Person. Her penchant for snatching failure from the jaws of victory is upsetting. George Miller was writing her scripts and, doing her thinking, when she was Minority Leader. The post of Leadership should have been his.”

“A charter school is not a guarantee of quality, or efficient spending -- check out the salaries of charter school administrators, they pay themselves exceptionally well. Something like 5% of schools are charter schools. I think that percentage is fine, as long as they do not siphon any funding away from public schools.

Unions were born from necessity -- they prevent employees from being abused. I have personally experienced union protection from hostile management, so I will always support unions.”

dandan1 on Sep 2, 2012 at 22:47:28

“Arizona has more charters than any other state and here is how they work: when a students wants to drop out of a public high school they are enrolled in a charter school- that keeps the drop out numbers low. There are tons of scams like that going on with charter schools. Charter schools are this gray area that allow just SOOO many scams.”
