“We are shocked at what’s been going on in this company,”
– Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif.
Hell henry, we at ClapSotronics have been shocked for DECADES at what’s been going on in criminal corpoRATe boardrooms, and we mean ALL OF EM!
Well Cricketeers,the thieving corpoRATe bankers have had their requisite yet insufficient “time out” at the wimpy hands of the feckless appaRATchiks in washingtOOn. I’m sure the juice boxes were warm and the graham crackers were stale. The nap won’t do the corpoRATeers any good either. This is clearly piss poor parenting of the banking bad boys by the government ‘rents. It’s time for some really tough love with these out of control spoiled brats at the banks! We ain’t gonna get them marched to the hickory shed though. This from cnnmoney:
Bank CEOs flogged in Washington
The heads of eight top banks faced the fury of Congress. But the execs noted that without TARP funds, credit would have become harder to obtain.
By David Ellis, CNNMoney.com staff writerFebruary 11, 2009
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Lawmakers grilled the top executives from eight of the nation’s largest financial institutions Wednesday about their apparent lack of willingness to lend to consumers and businesses despite taking in billions of dollars in government aid.
At a closely-watched hearing before the House Financial Services Committee, members of Congress blasted the eight CEOs, including the heads of embattled firms Citigroup and Bank of America, for their actions since the eight banks collectively received $165 billion in capital last fall.
“There is a great deal of anger in the country, much of it justified, about past practices,” Barney Frank, D-Mass, the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, noted in his opening remarks.
Public resentment for these banks has soared in recent weeks amid concerns that some financial institutions have used taxpayer money for purposes other than lending at a time when people across the country are struggling to stay in their homes or losing their jobs.
DAGNABIT! How cnnmoney can refer to this circus in washingtOOn as a “flogging” is beyond me! The pampered pink posteriors of the pig corpoRATe bankers show not so much as a welt!
Since it was the ethically challenged neolib klinton klan hillbillies (sandwiched between the failed admins of raygun and labushanostra) that set the corpoRATe bankers free (via deregulation) to loot the world economy. I guess it should come as no surprise that jethro the bodine (go go geithner) and ellie mae (hillary dillary do) are busying themselves down at the cement pond, while mr. drysdale (over at shittybank, bofa, etc.) continues to abscond with the funds!
SONOFABUSH! In the mean time, uncle jedd (obamessiah) has been off visiting inbred kin in stupidfuckastan (the red states) in an effort to convince em (as they cling to their guns and religion) that the “stimulus bill” is just the shot of granny’s rumetiz medicine they need. We at ClapSotronics will not be taking a nip from that mason jar!
The time has come for uncle jedd (obamessiah) to dust of that old possum rifle (the justice department) and fire off a volley of RICO statute prosecutions at the thieving corpoRATeer crooks!
Speaking of corpoRATe crimes, how about corpoRATe mass murderer little stewie parnell, crime boss of peanut corp. of america. This homicidal maniac killed a bunch of folks and sickened who knows how many others with salmonella tainted peanuts. So long as little stewie and company were making big profits selling poisoned food, little stewie just didn’t care if anyone got sick or died! This from usatoday:
Peanut boss refuses to testify at salmonella hearing
By Julie Schmit, USA TODAYThe head of the company linked to a massive salmonella outbreak in peanut products refused to testify at a Congressional hearing Wednesday as lawmakers accused him of caring more about profits than food safety.
Peanut Corporation of America President Stewart Parnell invoked his fifth amendment right not to testify, as did the plant manager at the Blakely, Ga., plant implicated in the outbreak, during the hearing before a House subcommittee. Both men also refused to eat recalled products that one lawmaker offered to them from a jar.
The Food and Drug Administration has said that PCA distributed products in 2007 and 2008 that had tested positive for salmonella. The products should not have been shipped, the FDA says.The outbreak has sickened more than 600 people may have contributed to nine deaths. More than 1,900 products have been recalled. A criminal probe is underway.
“We are shocked at what’s been going on in this company,” said Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., at the hearing.
It’s time to hold these peanut corp. execs “responsible” for their corpoRATe homicide! I wanna see orange jumpsuit perp walks of these murdering corpoRATeers! Time for little stewie and company to be sent to federal happy land to play volleyball for YEARS! It’s ironic that these corpoRATe criminals would be eating the products of companies such as peanut corp. who supply the prisons (on the off chance they do any jail time)! It’s clear little stewie and company will be hiding behind the criminal corpoRATeers fave constitutional right, the fifth! They will also be defended by the best corpoRATe ambulance chasers the money they stole can buy! It’s unlikely that the corpoRATe criminals will see any jail time. BUT “yes we can” always “hope” for “change” in this ongoing over all wrist slapping kid glove treatment given to corpoRATe criminals, can’t we? We at ClapSotronics will continue to call for:
CRIMINAL PROSECUTION OF THE corpoRATe THIEVES!
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I would like to apologize for possibility invoking the image of hillary dillary doo in “daisy dukes” EEEeeeeeWWWwwwwww! Everyone knows that asslaska’s palin has become the hot gun toting hick milf of choice…
