Suidical tendencies?

Just what we don't need: more scandals with Jewish names attached.

By now, everyone in that fraction of the world that pays attention to something other than American Idol and their platter of TGI Friday's loaded potato skins knows that Goldman Sachs has been caught at another racket in the stock market: front-running trades. What a clever gambit, done with the help of the markets themselves - the Nasdaq in particular - in which information on trades is held back a fraction of a second from public view, while the data is shoveled to the computers of privileged subscribers who can execute zillions of programmed micro-trades before the rest of the herd makes a move. This allows them to vacuum up hundreds of millions of dollars by doing absolutely nothing of value...

...I'm not a lawyer, but I've got to think that the actions at the Nasdaq end - shoveling the data to the privileged subscribers a fraction of a second early - is patently illegal in the first place, since the whole purpose of an exchange is to create a fair trading space. Where both parties are concerned, it should amount to a plain vanilla criminal conspiracy to commit stock trading fraud. Maybe the larger question is: since when did we become a society lacking the instinct for self-preservation - that is, a society bent on suicide? Or maybe the question is better put to Goldman Sachs's CEO Lloyd Blankfein.

...The sentiment is now overwhelmingly tipped against Goldman Sachs (and Wall Street generally) and the only questions are whether the President of the US ends up lumped in with them, and whether we'll see orderly prosecutions or disorderly persecutions.

...What bothers me is that, sooner or later, the conduct of Goldman Sachs will lead the growing ranks of the unemployed, foreclosed, disentitled, and hopeless into the hands of a savage right wing seeking mindless vengeance, for instance, against "the Jews," (as represented by Goldman Sachs), or brown-skinned people (as embodied by a vilified president).

Another article mentioned today on Failed Messiah describes how a yeshiva once again has completely ignored zoning laws and building codes and fire safety ordinances to stuff 30-some bochurim into a single-family house which was never designed to be a dormitory and is not legally permitted to be one. Their brilliant plan is to keep slamming the door in the city inspector's faces.

What fun it will be for the media when the swat team and riot squad shows up to break down the door when the city decides to revoke the occupancy permit for the property due to non-compliance. What great pictures that will provide for the front page of the newspaper and the national news on TV. They can put them side-by-side with the photos of the Goldman Sachs executives. More Jews who think they're above the law.

Are we really and truly this stupid? Every indication seems to be "yes." It's like they WANT the neighbors to revile them. They WANT people to associate the word "Jew" with corruption and arrogance. There's no other explanation for the attitudes of these people. They just don't CARE that they are endangering not just their own stupid selves but every ordinary law-abiding Jewish family that is just trying to live their life normally. Mobs don't make a distinction between law abiding Jews and corrupt scumbags. Anger and hatred has no time or patience to think rationally and assign blame only where it is due.

If these idiots don't care about making a chillul Hashem, will they at least PLEASE for one minute think of the little children whose homes will be burning down over their heads because you selfish pigs kept fanning the flames?

Enough already!
