The Sting

November 16, 2009

Here’s a news item that leaves me nonplussed, it’s exactly the same plot as the movie ‘The Sting’:

It comes from NPR and it’s about those investment banking bastards being able to hold up ‘regular guy’ (i.e. yours and mine) transactions for enough milliseconds for those bastards to get a better bid in. How is that different from betting on a certainty? These fucking guys seem to be sucking billions of dollars out of the economy, without adding a single whit of value to it,  all the while draining all our 401k’s value. Why is this even legal?

Especially as much of it has been done with our taxpayers ‘bailout’ money.

Torches and pitchforks, anyone? Either that, or how can I get some of this action? Like ‘The Sting’, it doesn’t take too much effort to predict the outcome of the horse race if you already know who the winner is.
