That was funny. It's pretty interesting to see them talk out the double standard... In front of a woman and everybody. We know it exists, just people shy away from talking about it.

Elizabeth Warren Embarrasses Hapless Bank Regulators At First Hearing (VIDEO)

Quote
WASHINGTON -- Bank regulators got a sense Thursday of how their lives will be slightly different now that Elizabeth Warren sits on a Senate committee overseeing their agencies.

At her first Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee hearing, Warren questioned top regulators from the alphabet soup that is the nation's financial regulatory structure: the FDIC, SEC, OCC, CFPB, CFTC, Fed and Treasury.

The Democratic senator from Massachusetts had a straightforward question for them: When was the last time you took a Wall Street bank to trial? It was a harder question than it seemed.

"We do not have to bring people to trial," Thomas Curry, head of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, assured Warren, declaring that his agency had secured a large number of "consent orders," or settlements.

"I appreciate that you say you don't have to bring them to trial. My question is, when did you bring them to trial?" she responded.

"We have not had to do it as a practical matter to achieve our supervisory goals," Curry offered.

Warren turned to Elisse Walter, chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission, who said that the agency weighs how much it can extract from a bank without taking it to court against the cost of going to trial.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4
Holders Vehicle Contracts, London

When you’ve finally landed that big promotion and you’re feeling like a million bucks, why not drive a million bucks by taking the wheel of the most powerful (16-cylinder, 1,000-horsepower), most expensive ($1.5 million, give or take a couple hundred thousand bucks) and fastest (top speed: 254 mph) street-legal ride on the road? You may not be able to open it up for full bravado cruising over Westminster Bridge and past Big Ben, but at least all the folks in the double-decker bus will know you made it. From $26,470 per day.

And people wonder why the 'Rich' are universally despised as "people". Give to a charity, don't waste it on stroking your ego.

Cyprus bailout deal looks set for collapse amid fear of run on banks

Quote
The widely criticized Cyprus bailout deal looked set to collapse despite a last-minute compromise attempt Tuesday, plunging one of the smallest European states closer to financial oblivion.

Lawmakers appeared likely to reject the unprecedented overnight tax on all bank accounts, CNBC reported, even after the government said smaller savers would be exempted.

The European deal could also be scuppered by a furious Russia, which is one of the biggest foreign investors in Cyprus and which stands to be among the biggest losers.

Reuters said the situation had “potentially severe consequences for the rest of the troubled euro zone.”

The fact that Cyprus was even being talked about p*sses me off. Why? Well, we know how much Obama is a follower and he would gladly try to implement something like this on American soil. Come to think of it....it's already happening. If I were a resident of Cyrprus, I would be pulling my money out right now and just stuffing it under the mattress. I wouldn't trust the banks not to do something discreetly to still skim off accounts.

What's a Bitcoin?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhFjfVQK3G8

Man, my head must be buried deep in the sand because I'm just NOW hearing about Bitcoin. Sounds too far fetched to have it's survival based on the "honor system" of strangers. The name Bitcoin has more value as the name of a Boy Band....or something...

I think the fair thing to do would be to pay back all the taxes we paid over the last 50 years and then discontinue Taxes all together from here on out.

Samsung pays Apple $1 Billion sending 30 trucks full of 5 cent coins

Quote
Thirty trucks filled with 5-cent coins pulled up to the Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California. Initially, the security team at Apple, who protects the tech giants facility, told the trucks that they were in the wrong place. But, just minutes later, Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, received a phone call from the Samsung CEO explaining how the billion fine was being paid in the form of coins.

samsung-pays-apple-1-billion-sending-30-trucks-full-of-5-cents-coins

The funny part is that the signed document does not specify a single payment method, so Samsung is entitled to send the creators of the iPhone their billion dollars in the way they deem best.

This dirty but genius geek troll play is a new headache to Apple executives as they will need to put in long hours counting all that money, to check if it is all there and to try to deposit it crossing fingers to hope a bank will accept all the coins.

Lee Kun-hee, Chairman of Samsung Electronics, told the media that his company is not going to be intimidated by a group of “geeks with style” and that if they want to play dirty, they also know how to do it.

    You can use your coins to buy refreshments at the little machine for life or melt the coins to make computers, that’s not my problem, I already paid them and fulfilled the law.

    A total of 20 billion coins, delivery hope to finish this week.

Let’s see how Apple will respond to this.

This is why I NEVER use Machines at Gas Stations. I always pay inside and it's with cash only. I don't trust Gas Stations as far as I could throw them. I didn't know about the 'Universal Key' or about those 'Gas Guzzler' trucks that hijack the gas and then resell to other.......Gas Stations. Don't the dishonest Gas Station owners ever worry about those Gas Guzzler's turning around one day and stealing their "own" gas from them? WTF.
