  •  A man who just doesn’t understand capitalism (11+ / 0-)

    I just love CBS Sunday Morning. Their audience is mostly elderly Americans and ever week there is always at least one “Wake Up Shot.”

    This week it was the third richest man in the world laughing off the “national debt issue” and sounding more like Tavis Smiley on social issues. The title of the segment with catchy quotes from his NYT OP-Ed Piece “Just a regular billionaire.”  

    As for Tavis Smiley, he did the editorial comment on CBS Sunday Morning this morning. Enough to drive a conservative crazy.

      How felony crime and conspiracy define the Wall Street rip-off of American society.

      January 25th will be the fifth anniversary of a brutal killing on Water Street in Manhattan at the side of the Goldman, Sachs building. The confessed and now-convicted criminal responsible was E.E.I.'s then CEO George Anderson. The victim was an office worker, Florence Cioffi.

      Big story. Front page at the Post, the New York Times, television stations. DUI vehicular manslaughter with hit-and-run fleeing the scene.

      When Anderson was let off with a 16-day sentence in Rikers, plus a $350 fine, our corporate press whimpered and fell silent. No follow up, period.

      Prosecutors apparently used this case to announce that they were open for business. Wall Street's criminal class has its way with criminal prosecution for NYC and New York State.

      Sunday Morning.  Loved the profile of Buffet this morning.
