As the financial damage continues climbing, perhaps those companies who collude with the US Government will use this as a learning opportunity for future decisions. Assuming the impacted companies ultimately survive that is. I would personally rather see those who colluded with the Government on this go down in the flames of bankruptcy because trust, once lost, is never fully regained.
If I were the shareholders, I would absolutely eviscerate them for risking not only the company, but the entire industry on what boils down to a rather piss poor decision on the companies part. At the bare minimum, the entire executive level of the company would be replaced since their trustworthiness is beyond redemption.
It's rather depressing to realize just how much of the United States is built upon lies and deceit. ( Are there ANY countries on the planet that aren't ? ) We've reached a point where the lies are completely obvious now, but no one cares and nothing changes. We elect one idiot vs. another only to confirm down the road they were nothing but lies as well. It's becoming painfully obvious that following the " laws " to try and resolve this like civilized people, just aren't working. Laws are meant for the little people. Not the for-sale-lawmakers and those with the financial means to manipulate them. .
It's really sad what the lust for power and greed does to the human species. It's downright embarrassing sometimes :|
So, other than the ultra-violence option, what exactly CAN be done to start turning this around ? Can it be turned around ?
