Enough! DEMAND to know where every last penny has gone
The TARP, Madoff, AIG, Stanford, Goldman, Citibank, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, Enron, the Pentagon, CDO's, credit default swaps, Trump, Credit Suisse, UBS, Merrill Lynch, Haliburton, Blackwater, Liberty Media, Worldcom, BCCI...

The list of crooks and criminals goes on forever. Sooner or later the people must put their foot on the neck of organized (and disoragnized) crime and say 'Enough!'

Enough of securitizing everything to turn into a tradable casino game.

Enough of limited, secreted control of back office monetizing and clearing houses.

Enough of privatizing profits and socializing losses.

Enough of being treated like children.

Enough looting of our Treasury.

Enough of taking our money to bail out irresponsible corporations.

Enough imperialist wars.

Enough of 'too big to fail'

Enough of Wall Street's phony eminence.

Enough of spinning lobbyists.

Enough house arrest for those who destroy lives.

Enough of a few assholes ruining the world for the rest of us.

Demand satisfaction from your lawmakers -show us where and why our tax money has gone- I want DETAILS.. Threaten their jobs. Take away secrecy and replace it with sunshine (the best disinfectant).

If I am expected to pay for some speculator/trader's losses I say no way. If my tax money goes to bail out some corporate douchbag who couldn't find his butt if it had a bell on it I say no way.

Let's see some justice by frogmarching these fakers and thieves to prison immediately.

In the land of milk and honey there's plenty for everybody, but someone has to stop the looting.

3. Public humiliation is just fine by me
Shame and scorn heaped on by the masses in a public forum. Like the stocks:

Public humiliation was a major part of punishment in stocks and pillories. These would always be sited in the most public place available, for example the market square or village green. In small communities, those being punished would be well known to everyone else, thereby increasing their shame.
Audience participation was a key element. The helpless victim would usually be subjected to a barrage of mockery and abuse, and pelted with any missiles which came to hand. These could range from rotten fruit and vegetables, mud, excrement, dead rats, even stones. This was most effective in the pillory, where the occupant was unable to move his or her head.

8. NO. I have not.
I can do it with my checkbook every month. Why can't we do it with the thousands of government employees, overseers, auditors and inspectors general who are paid to do just that? Big government onnly works when it is forced to.

11. Show us the money!!! Time to open all the accounting books, bank accounts foreign and domestic.
It's auditing time for these evil clowns, they've had their fun.

Drain their assets THEN throw their asses in jail.
