1929 and now ..........

1929 and now...





Back in the 1929 Financial Crash, it was said that some Wall Street stockbrokers and bankers JUMPED from their office windows and committed suicide when confronted with the news of their firms' and clients' financial ruin.



Many people were said to almost feel a little sorry for them . . .





In 2008 the attitude has changed somewhat:

Attitudes have changes quite a bit since 1929. These bloodsuckers don't even feel bad, never mind jumping. One thing you can count on is they still have their money. They leave with big Golden Parachutes. Look at these guys like Bernie Madoff, and another guy came to light yesterday Nicholas Cosmo. Both these guys were running Ponzi schemes. Madoff in the Billions of dollars, Cosmo in the hundreds of millions. Where are the regulators? To boot Cosmo did a few years in jail for defrauding previous investors. So far three people who lost money with Madoff have comitted suicide. That I really don't understand, well I don't understand why they didn't kill Madooff first.

You'd prolly have to take out some innocent bystanders to get to him. You know, those little guys he's hired to stand in front of doors.
