    Corzine hit the jackpot

    Lucky for him Ozero got reelected, that means he'll be enjoying "freedom" for another four more years as opposed to being locked up in a country club for stealing others people's money. Who says there's no justice in this CONtry?? BTW, that should give uncle Warren, Munger, Gates & Ajit plenty of time aka four more years to write up those character reference letters. Yes we Can!!!!

    Hey Brkahoo, is Charlie Rangel still in CONgress aka duh swamp??? I'm just asking.

    • WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Poor management decisions by MF Global's former CEO Jon Corzine triggered the brokerage firm's collapse, while lax protections for customer funds contributed to the loss of an estimated $1.6 billion of customer money, congressional investigators have determined.

      Evidence unearthed by the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Oversight puts the blame squarely on Corzine, the panel's chairman Rep. Randy Neugebauer, said in a preview of the report that will be released on Thursday.

      "The responsibility for failing to maintain the systems and controls necessary to protect customer funds rests with Corzine," the report says. "This failure represents a dereliction of his duty as MF Global's chairman and CEO."

      Hey Brkahoo, remind me again why the Justice Department has done absolutely nothing about this matter?? It's been more than a year bro. So, why isn't Corzine behind bars already?? Was there a trial, did I miss it???

      Those statements by congressional republiCONS are way too lenient - It makes it sound like he was either stupid or inCONpetent as opposed to CONplicit in the crime. That should tell you something too! The fact of the matter according to his own people is that Corzine approved the co-mingling of customer accounts to be used as collateral for MF Global's leveraged gambles.

      Oh, BTW, were you able to get a status update on Charlie Range, thanks bud??? Duh swamp is no place to be for an extended period of time you never know what you might catch.

    • I see you're taking party's loss with your typical grace and introspection. It's like you got up, brushed yourself off, and focused yourself squarely on ensuring a repeat in 2016. You're going to win by getting better, not by spending another four years building an Obama strawman to attack.

      • Typical brkahoo response, argumentum ad hominem. Attack the messenger and not the message. Of course in AmeriCON it's easy to get away with that, one of the many reasons we have such big problems in this CONtry.

        You know I was hoping Romney would win so you libs would get back on message instead of being silent hypocrites, instead what we got is four more years of libs keeping their mouths shut on issues they'd vociferously protest and perhaps likely acts of thuggery if republiCONS were doing them. Hope & Change bro - let me know when you see it.

        The "audacity" of the CON is alive and well in AmeriCON. Four More Years & Yes we CON!!!
