SEC: Nothing Criminal At Lehman

Corruptio optimi pessima.
(The best things when corrupted become the worst.)

Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics

Not even a wristslap.

Well at least the SEC released its report. The craven curs and hypocrites at the CFTC have been studying the criminal manipulation of the silver market for more than four years, and as of yet have not even had the decency to release their findings, and then proclaim they will do nothing about it.

It is the contempt of vultures. The more you take it, the bolder they become.

But not to worry, you will be able to vote for ‘change’ again in November.

There will be another financial crisis. And there will be another bailout. And you will take it and do nothing, except perhaps grumble quietly and draw comfort with the thought, ‘Thank God, at least we are not socialist like Europe.’ Before it is over they may do monstrous things in your name, and you will avert your eyes and say nothing.

“For what does it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, but lose his soul?”

There is little downside to white collar crime, and accounting fraud has been effectively decriminalized in the acceptance of Lehman’s ‘Repo 105.’

Nothing is safe.
