  1. Yesterday, Comrade O made a big deal about Constitutional adherence, particularly for the detainees, even beyond the scope of the Boumediene decision. He pointed ut his Constitutional acholrship. Here’s a quick quiz. Where did this come from? “Nor be deprived of life liberty or property, without due process of law, nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensatopn.” I’m syure “Constitutional schoilar” Comrade O KNOWS that’s the last third of the 5th Amendment. It appears that Constituional scholar Comrade O places a higher value on the “rights” of detainees than he does American citizen bedt holders of Chrysler and GM>

  2. “When such a thing happens to an everyday person who is ripped off by a financial planner, the press is sympathetic, usually justifiably so.”

    Unless that everyday person happens to be “rich.”

  4. #3, correct me if I’m wrong. You had a chance to sell most or all of your GM stock before it tanked, and your ESOP or 401(k) didn’t force you to keep it.

    If I’m right, it’s your fault that you didn’t sell it when it became obvious that the company was dying. If I’m wrong, “fair” or not, you’ve learned the perils of forced ownership.
