    That this will lead to investigations or prosecutions of white people.

    It all seems to be little fish and "people of color" who get caught in the net.

    some memberships in the country club are subject to revocation....Madoff & Raj thought they were gold star lifetime members, and boy were they mistaken.

    Sacrificial lambs are sometimes required to make it appear our markets are on the up and up.

    will see a cage, at most a fine that will not equal one fiscal quarter's worth of profits.

    No cages.

    When Blankfein and Dimon face the Bar of Justice, I'll sit up and take notice.

    to stay seated then...now those 2 are in like Flynn...not "friends of mine" like a Raj or even a Skilling, but "friends of ours".

    Sh*t it might be Treasury Secretary Blankfein to us one day...

    There's some slick mofo on Fox Business channel right now doing the white collar version of "stop snitchin'" right now...very funny channel btw.

    Ah Shooter the law makes strange bedfellows...I found myself agreeing with the Gordon Geko wanna-be s.o.b. for a sec...hate when they kill the unintentional comedy like that:)
