    Eric Holder is concerned some financial institutions are "too big to jail"...

    Att'ny Gen Eric Holder is concerned some financial institutions are "too big to jail"...so that if the government needs to charge a top level exec for fiscal wrongdoing, he gets pressure (Now, who would that pressure come from? hmmm?) not to do that since it might adversely affect world markets...so that means that if we want to break any new gun control laws that get passed, we just need to be a top level exec for a financial institution.

    Why not...the financial institutions seem to be able to get away with anything else.

    Since there's been wealth, there have been folks deemed "too big" to hold accountable. It is what it is.

    As is malfeasance, breach of sworn oath of office and all the rest.

    Thanks for the inspiration, ccw9mm.

    I watched a little bit of Holder on Cspan during the F&F hearings.I watched him some on a hearing with the drones.It baffles me,that he is in the position he is in.He would be asked a question,that was either yes or no,but it seemed, it was to hard for him to understand.He seems to be doing a lot of backpedaling,or acts like he is lost,smh.

    Obfuscation within the boundaries he defines. He is, after all, the Attorney General.

    Certainly Holder & Obummer are above the law ... just look at Fast & Furious.

    "To big to be allowed to fail" was the reason of choice given for bailing out the car companies and other large corporations. I say it's all BS. Any company that is not performing to the point that it would fail, should be allowed to fail. Any company who is blatantly and continually breaking the law, as with the money laundering at HSBC, should be taken down and the principals involved need to be prosecuted. Would this have a negative effect on our economy? Perhaps. But it needs to be done regardless.

    I actually agree with the paraphrase, that the institutions are too large to actually reign in or punish effectively. I get a headache if I try to think of a solution. They've had a million geniuses working for decades trying to accumulate institutional power (all through incentives, rarely malice) and now we've got a tiger by the tail.

    I share the sentiment, if not the metaphor ()! But figuring out how is where the headache comes from.
