MF Global Goes Down

31 October 2011 32 Comments

It takes special talent to destroy a state (New Jersey) and a private company (MF Global). MF Global has had its shares halted and will be heading for bankruptcy. Jon Corzine, former CEO of Goldman Sachs, Senator and Governor of New Jersey is the CEO of MF Global. He’s essentially the epitome of everything wrong with Wall Street – the shining beacon of politics merged with global finance. I hope he goes broke.

    CNN finally ….has covered the Argentine crisis with an eye toward Greece and perhaps

    Jon Corzine's New Jersey? I usually ignore CNN, but when they report the obvious – events I have

    witnessed personally, I listen. You might want to check out this interesting report entitled:

    Back on the topic, MF Global Goes Down and former Goldman Sachs CEO and Governor

    Jon Corzine, please watch Keiser Report episode 26 found here:

    Everything is explained in simple terms, with a minimum of Wall Street jargon – Max Keiser and

    Stacy Herbert just tell it like it is. None of the CEOs loose money, the losses are all passed onto

    clients and profits mysteriously disappear . oh , and let's not forget the 12 million dollar bonus

When first introduced, she wore a revealing red blouse that showed much of her chest and a loose sarong that exposed her long, slender legs with the green symbol of the Kuja adorned on it, along with a white cape sporting epaulettes more commonly found on the jackets of high-ranking Marines, and red high heel pumps.
