  •  Let me just observe that some people are not (1+ / 0-)

    capable of separating an issue from a person. They can say "nothing personal," but they cannot ignore the person, because the person is all they see. We might just as well expect a dog to meow.
    Or think of a frog sitting on the edge of a pond. It snaps at whatever enters its sightline at the right speed. Sometimes it ends up with a swallow that's too big to swallow; sometimes it ends up with another frog. That does not mean frogs are fratricidal. It means they are instinct-driven. Some humans are too. They cannot help what they do. Or, as it says in the New Testament, "they know not what they do."
    Not knowing does not preclude slyness and scheming. Is not the fox characterized as sly? Does not the killdeer pretend injury to deceive? Deception is a very primitive strategy. Even plants employ it. Evolution is incremental. There is no reason to think primitive behaviors are lost.
    Which is not to say primitive behaviors should be ignored or rewarded.
    On the other hand, financial thievery is something to be ambivalent about. It is pure thievery in the sense that what is stolen is of no practical use and, therefor, insulting. So, even though the money can be recouped or compensated from some other source, the insult will remain, unless it is refused.
    Has Laserhaas suffered loss as a result of theft, or because he became obsessed by the need to exact revenge on behalf of someone else?

    Btw, it occurred to me just today that the middlemen are what we might call "opportunistic predators," as opposed to those that go on the hunt or stalk their prey. The opportunistic ones lurk and wait until lady fortune sends dinner their way. That may account for why they do not perceive themselves as "takers." Imagine them as highwaymen of old, intercepting travelers to exact a toll. That they did not build the road does not occur to them.

    •  It is not just moi that suffered loss due to grand (0+ / 0-)

      larceny. That is too simplistic.

      Of course, I want back what they stole; but it is the greater evils at play that I'm trying to shine the light upon.

      The Learning Company $3 Billion (most have NO idea it was Romney and gang who caused the loss -- and wound up with 12 million shares of Mattel in 1999) - Then Bain buys Kay Bee for $38 million down. CEO of Kay Bee pays himself $18 million bribe and Bain $83 million; before filing bankruptcy of Kay Bee.

      If you or I took out the money of our house worth and then filed bankruptcy and kept the money. Your or I would get 20 years for Bankruptcy Fraud.

      Stage Stores was funded by Michael Milken jund bond fraud money. The reason why Romney was allowed to use the junk bonds money - is because the judge's wife owned shares in the company profiting from the schemes.

      Then all those same players decide to destroy the public company of eToys by lying under oath to get inside the vault. When, as manager, I point out they are stealing. The Police and Judge remove me and hand the bank robber the keys to the vault they are fleecing.

      All because one partner of the fraudsters law firm - was made to become the Delaware United States Attorney on August 2, 2001. Who then refused to investigate and/or prosecute his partners and their clients/friends for 7 years.

      All facts documented by public docket records.

      And that same federal prosecutor was a partner in the law firm from 1999 to August 2001.

      The BOSS lied on his federal campaign finance form to the entire country to hide these glaring facts - saying he "retroactively" resigned from Aug 2001, back to Feb 1999.

      Which is the SAME exact period of time that all of these organized crimes began.

      I'm a victim - who just keeps pointing out the facts - and Obama's Of_A Illinois Campaign site is following me on Twitter

      But venerates of this realm are calling me CT - to kill the conversation - and say those facts are just things I made up.

      The whole point of this D - is one (especially a venerate leader of the realm) - should NOT be able to troll with his gang after a Diarist, and sling words that kill discussions (such as CT always NIX's the discussion)

      Unless that person can prove to a jury of random parties

      that one is truly CT.

      Mitt Romney was CEO of Bain until Aug 2001. Proof of Bain & Romney Fraud
