I am shocked, just shocked, at the following news

Trustee: J.P. Morgan Abetted Madoff

Why would a fine, upstanding patriotic American corporation like JP Morgan Chase, that wonderful institution of those warm humanitarians the Morgan and Rockefeller families, be involved in fraud, in ignoring the "warning signs" of a clear swindle?

I don't know about you, but I am imagining interesting punishments for the bankers and major stockholders, and the management, of this company, and the families that lurk in the background... enough is enough. It is time for America and Americans to wake up, and to quit idolizing the robber barons of laissez faire capitalism as heros; it is time to recognize them for what they are: pariahs, and parasites, and above all, criminals.
