This story is linked up on drudge. Just shows how out of touch the 1% are with the rest of us and exactly what they think of us.

Re: What I saw when I crashed a Wall Street secret society.....
"...Once we made it to the lobby, Ross and Lebenthal reassured me that what I’d just seen wasn’t really a group of wealthy and powerful financiers making homophobic jokes, making light of the financial crisis, and bragging about their business conquests at Main Street’s expense. No, it was just a group of friends who came together to roast each other in a benign and self-deprecating manner. Nothing to see here.

But the extent of their worry wasn’t made clear until Ross offered himself up as a source for future stories in exchange for my cooperation.

“I’ll pick up the phone anytime, get you any help you need,” he said.

“Yeah, the people in this group could be very helpful,” Lebenthal chimed in. “If you could just keep their privacy in mind.”

I wasn’t going to be bribed off my story, but I understood their panic. Here, after all, was a group that included many of the executives whose firms had collectively wrecked the global economy in 2008 and 2009. And they were laughing off the entire disaster in private, as if it were a long-forgotten lark. (Or worse, sing about it — one of the last skits of the night was a self-congratulatory parody of ABBA’s “Dancing Queen,” called “Bailout King.”) These were activities that amounted to a gigantic middle finger to Main Street and that, if made public, could end careers and damage very public reputations..."

Pretty interesting report.

Riiiiiight. Good to know that the journalist kept his oath and went through with that article instead of taking the offer.

hmm,

this is looking like a (my uncle said) hit piece, but I'll bite.

"If all the old reckless bankers were retired, today, newer more reckless bankers would move into their roles, tomorrow."

Finance is nothing more than an empire-building game, a Global Gambling Game, with an arbitrary (and extremely contradictory) ruleset.

Oh, sounds like I'm talking about The Bible now, LOL. I'm not, I'm talking about the very serious business of PROFIT via PATENT PROTECTION SERVICES, and the acquisition of ASSET i.e. You The People, as collateral in all sorts of 'moves on the chess board'.

;)


My point being, "Change the GAME, i.e. Free Planet!"

That was disgusting to read. What a bunch of bastards. Effing psychopaths with no empathy or regard for their fellow man.

Why did the reporter wait over a year before spilling the beans?

Oh, and pin suggested, 5 stars.

The saddest part is the banksters are enabled by the 99%.

How many here bank with one of the mega banks? you are the problem

How many contribute to a 401K? you are the problem

How many do not possess a single silver coin? you are the problem.

your continuation in the system allows this behavior. most are waiting for some protector or a law that will change this. Never. gonna. happen.

take matters into your own hands

Undoubtedly, it has to do with the siphoning off of billions of dollars from the American (and global) markets. These suicided bankers were either complacent in the theft and were taken out because of what they knew or they discovered how it was done and were a threat to the establishment.

Just a guess, but it adds up with all that has been going on and their MO.
