We all have heard the dictum that a businessman or lawyer could steal a whole lot more with a briefcase than could a mobster with a gun. The recent raiding of Wall Street bailout tax funds by executives for bonuses, golden parachutes, lavish vacations and private jets magnificently demonstrates the above. Our eloquent Vice-President said it for all of us, "Throw 'em in the brig!" These Wall Street bosses operated as if they were members of some sort of gentry and were not subject to the same laws as the rest of us. It isn't any wonder considering the aristocratic way the Bush administration and Congressional Republicans have catered to them with tax cuts for the rich and upward distribution of wealth, deregulation and lack-luster oversight as well as legislation tailor-made for profit with no concern for the resulting consequences to the American public. To maintain the moral fiber of our country, it is imperative that these thieves are treated as all other thieves and sentenced to real hard-time prisons and ordered to return the booty.
