  •  Good evening, Joe (7+ / 0-)

    Great Elizabeth Warren hearing! I keep telling myself not to get too excited about it, but she is doing great so far.

    Good Sirota piece among many others you have here on Mary Jo White and how she always refers to Rubinites on whether punishment is acceptable. Shareholders take risks when they decide which company to invest in; maximizing shareholder value  just for the sake of doing so when the company is being looted by the CEO and defrauding people is picking magical criminal market winners and no losers. Adam Smith would not approve.

    That's what "You don't mess with Mary Jo" means. She has no standards nor does this WH.

      i can't imagine that mary jo white will not get appointed to the SEC so that she can coddle criminals until the end of the obama administration or until the revolving door squeaking that it has big money waiting for her keeps her awake at nights.

      •  Indeed, Joe. This is a sad state of affairs (3+ / 0-)

        and why we can't shut about about these things even in 2014 or 2016. I don't think those are going to be good years.

          i am envisioning democratic supported cuts to social security and medicare, a declining voting base for democrats due to their perfidy and, of course, the obama supporters blaming progressives for driving down turnout when the rethugs give the dems a drubbing.

            IT will be the Obama going to China moment getting House Dems to cut our safety net like they are showing they will do per the letter they won't sign in your diary.

            That will be the reason for any electoral losses, not BS propaganda about progressives from loyalists.
