NEW YORK (Reuters) - For anyone who believes crime doesn't pay, tell that to the New York state legislator who introduced a "Madoff" bill on Monday. Rich New Yorkers convicted of crimes would be forced -- if his bill becomes law -- to pay the state and federal governments for how much it costs to keep them in jail.

Financial Crisis? Let your rage rain down on the crooks and swindlers who caused it.
Watch the shady bankers, creepy fraudsters and corrupt CEOs flee their gilded offices, sprinting for the nearest escape vehicle. Squash and flick the snarky scoundrels up and down the streets and sidewalks in the festering heart of the city where all the thievery and greed began. Recoup your losses with the monetary awards you receive from successfully squashing the white-collared criminals who stole your retirement savings. Fund your unending vengeful rampage with precious metal bonuses hoarded from certain embezzlers who just couldn't grab enough. Be a responsible steward: avoid bankruptcy or your bubble will burst.

From Jonathan Jarvis
Crisis of Credit is a most excellent visualization to help explain how the hell we got into these tough economic times. (TETs)
"While it may not seem like it, these banks on Wall Street are closely connected to these houses on Main Street", let's see how...
Squash them Jonathan Jarvis, squash them all.

Wall Street fell in early trading Tuesday on concerns that swine flu will dampen a global economic recovery and that some banks may need to raise more capital.
Not to worry, the Banksters have private corporate freshly sanitized jets to whisk them away to safe zones or the nearest Deep Underground Military Base when TSHTF (The Swine Hits The Fan, as it would be in this case) Unless, of course, you SQUASH them first before they can escape to their jet.

Quote by Naomi Klein
In the ‘90s I wrote a lot about branding and how corporations were tapping into the deeply human need to be part of something bigger than just consumerism. “We’re not just selling sneakers. We’re not just selling laptops. We’re selling transcendence and a connection and community.” That trend actually made me feel hopeful that, actually, we don’t just want things, and all of this expensive market research was telling Microsoft and Starbucks and Nike that what we actually want is to be part of something larger.

A creative schemer tries a novel approach:
Grigg made phony claims that investors' money was being put into "TARP-guaranteed debt" with a 12.5% return.
"There is no such thing as TARP-guaranteed debt," a Treasury Department spokeswoman said Tuesday.
Grigg also had a life-coaching company:
The SEC sued Grigg in late January, claiming that his financial advisory and "life coaching" company, ProTrust Management Inc., defrauded at least 27 clients out of millions of dollars."
More from the LA Times Story.
And an article about the Guy who squashed him.
He faces up to 8 years in Jail.
