FAT-CATS AND FIRE-ANTS

Does anyone out there want to give Wall Street to the Terrorists?

I think I have a plan for fixing this whole mess. We take all the fat-cat CEOs out to the desert. We cover them in molasses and then set a case of fire-ants free.

Okay, maybe that's a bit of a stretch, but actually that's kind of what's happening to us poor slobs. They are the fire-ants, and we're the bodies covered with molasses. They misappropriated funds, lied, cheated their way to fat wallets, and when the shoe finally dropped, they want us to bail them out while running for the comfort of their off-shore bank accounts and faraway-island estates There is something wrong with this picture!

Please Wall-Street-Gods, don't let them get away with it.

I hate to picture these fat-cat CEO's sipping Mai-Tais and Sex-on-the-Beach cocktails in the Caribbean or South Pacific. I wonder if a single one of them feels guilty. How can they live with what they've done?
I agree. They should suffer the consequences, however, I also believe that too many in the U.S have been living beyond their means for way too long. Sometimes bad things like this force people to change their bad habits. Let's hope something good will emerge from this for the future generations of children.

Yeah, nice idea. But we must add something to the scenario that takes back the stolen wealth and puts it to work in the ailing economy...
