Boy, I guess John Ransom is now anti Free Market. Hates Wall Street, class warrior, thinks the elite are the problem, just because he can't afford to move. If he went to Harvard like Mitt did, he'd be happy as a clam, counting the money he 'earned' because he knows all the right people. Instead he's got a platform here, and that's as far as he'll go. So sad. P.S., when you invest money with a hedge fund, they tell you that it is a RISKY investment, and you could lose SOME or ALL of your capital. NO GUARANTEES. Use only money you can afford to lose.

Halibutorn:

You're as much of an idiot on Thanksgiving as you are any other day.

Perhaps you'd like to explain why Bernie Madoff is in prison, and Jon Corzine isn't.

We'll wait.

Pretty easy, Madoff broke the law. So far no charges have been brought against Corzine. Can you site any statutes he violated? Many people have made bed investments, Bear Stearns, Lehman Bros, Long Term Capital Management, AIG, Citigroup, but they broke no laws. De-regulating the securities industry made a lot of things legal for banks to do that were reserved for private equity firms. De-reguation is a Republican mantra, and like usual, doesn't work in the real world.

And Corzine didn't?

Corzine did the SAME THING Madoff did... and STILL no charges brought against Corzine.

You sound like a real expert. On what I don't know. What a putz!

Bush put Madoff in jail, Obama won't go after his buddies, they're all crooks!

Actually, Hal, most of the firms you cited were run by staunch Democraps, and the free market, if you bother to read Smith on the wealth of nations, very clearly states, that without a genuine and firmly embedded moral certitude in your psyche, the free market becomes just a haven for the shiftless, greedy, and corrupt like Corzine, Madoff, and the rest. So without a proper perspective and a historical basis for what you say, you're just running off at the mouth in the finest traditions of Rachel Maddow, Keith Olberman, Chris Mathews, Nazi P. Lousy, Harry Reid, Barack Oblahblah and his trusty side kick, tweedle dumbest man on the planet.

Oh, what constitutes a "bed" investment anyway?

We’ve already established that no one will go to jail over $40 billion turfing of the brokerage firm MF Global, one of history’s largest bankruptcies.

MF Global died by the hand of the former Jon Corzine, the former golden boy at Goldman Sachs, the former Senator, the former Governor, the former Obama guru with a master’s degree from the University of Chicago; the sage with the Sixties beard wrapped in a custom-made Burberry suit and tie.
