The financial sector is conducting business as usual while the world continues to struggle from a massive recession. Millions upon millions in fines have been levied but since they represent only fractions of the billions made perpetrating the crimes, there's no real incentive to stop.

Lawmakers of the Boy's Club make sure their constituents receive just a slap on the wrist when they commit crimes. Yet, the people aren't treated the same as their crimes are punished much more severely.

AIG is paying large bonuses to executives even though they received the largest single corporate bailout in history, and still owes more than $100 billion to the taxpayer. The SEC was pressured to hide the recipients of the payouts made by AIG using your tax dollars.
SHARE Wednesday, January 27, 2010 Depressing Recovery
Many are scrambling to try and demonstrate their psychic abilities to predict the recovery so they can wear a badge of success. We've heard many times by many people that the economy is in recovery. Recent news demonstrates otherwise.

We are still being fed one lie after another, if not from the government, then from the corporations. The recession isn't over.

Retention bonuses are the loophole exploited by crafty criminals on Wall Street. The narrow-minded lawmakers still falsely believe they are in charge while the companies pose as a trustworthy acquaintance.

How does one guarantee a bonus that still pays when a company suffers a 97% loss? They would have
to contain language tantamount to, "The bonus is paid no matter what happens.", because there

SHARE Tuesday, February 24, 2009 Five for One - H1-B Program Fails to Benefit American Economy
The current economic crisis is not likely to improve soon. American programs supporting, in fact favoring, low-cost foreign employees on the H1-B program will ensure Americans will stay out of work longer, and when they return, will be forced to do so at a much lower wage than when they left.
SHARE Sunday, November 9, 2008 Failure of Ego - Bailout Sustains Financial Cartel
With over a million people now out of work, and millions others losing their homes and the standard of life that has been stolen from them by greed and an incompetent government, the bailout isn't helping the people.

Users of social networking sites can post anything, from pictures to documents to movies, all in the social interest
of "See what I'm doing..." However, it could also mean, "... and look what she's doing!"
SHARE Friday, October 10, 2008 And For Other Purposes
One of the biggest problems we have is the "for other purposes" clause in every single bill proposed.
This has to stop, and stop it must. The fact is, Henry Paulson could choose to buy new shoes for every member of congress with the $700 billion.
