I did an interview with a print reporter yesterday about what has been going on with lack of prosecutions, the banks, and Wall Street in general. We discussed the corrupt exchanges and HFT.
I dropped lots of F-Bombs, called out cowards and crooks and held nothing back. (“That $%$%#@ belongs in prison; this son of a @&*^% should hang“)
Afterwards, she commented that I seemed angry.
I wrote back suggesting that I am a happy dude, and its not Anger — its closer to an ineffable sadness that comes once you realize you have lost something dear. I am old enough to have grown up when this nation was a Democracy, but that era has passed. We now live in a nation no longer run by the citizens — it is aCorporatocracy — and that makes me sadder than angry . . .
She suggests perhaps a better word is outraged.
