Is there a ceremony that bankers / financiers / hedge fund managers go thru before selling their soul to satan?
- Uncle PennybagsLv 79 years agoFavorite Answer
Speaking of selling souls, how else can you explain Barack Obama's career?
How else could he have gotten into Columbia and then Harvard Law?
How else could someone, with such a poor resume, win Obama State Senator?
How else could someone with such a poor resume win US Senator?
How else could someone with such a poor resume win the Presidency.
For his State Senate, and US Senate runs, he didn't beat his competition. His competition was disqualified, or self-destructed. Almost as if Satan himself used his influence to clear the path for Obama to win.

Yes... They first drink the blood of a newborn infant in a sacred place.. the bank. Then they sign a document that was prepared by no less than 10 lawyers with at least 50 addendum's all penned in blood on the cheapest copier paper you can buy at an office supply store. Then, in celebration of this accomplishment, they meet in a candle lit cave and have sex with goats. Next, they dance on the graves of poor people, singing a happy song. Then they pledge to produce a reality television program. Next stop is the agreement to lobby congress to decrease the quality of education with the goal of diminishing the middle class even further. They split in groups to beat their undocumented gardeners and housekeepers within an inch of their lives. They also have a practice of bidding on the value of their mothers. They receive an honorable mention for achieving a final bid under $1. The final act in the ceremony is the ritual sodomizing of an elderly wal-mart greeter. Once these have been completed they are welcomed into the society and are free to wrap their mouths around the dark lord's engorged.....

The crisis wasn't the fault of hedge fund managers. It was the fault of insurance companies and bankers who had no clue what they were doing.
hedge funds said, "What are you doing? Don't you realize that will cause a crisis? Your bonds are not AAA--- they're worthless!!" (Michael Burry of Scion capital)
Bankers "Nobody cares what you think, deregulation allows us to do all sorts of loony things to make money, even though we can't tell you what a CDO, really"
Burry " Okay, I will bet on the market collapsing, because I know what's going to happen"
Michael Burry made 6 billion USD predicting the entire crisis, because as he said, he knew Wall Street was crooked and just profited handsomely off that.
Hedge fund managers didn't cause the crisis. They saw it coming and profited hugely off it. And then later they said the banking industry in the US is broken... which it is. Funny how some people are still defending Wall Street. large portions of the bailouts were actually used to award bonuses (for IB firms, bonuses are usually six figure on top of normal salary... which is usually also six figure)Source(s): investor.

I find it hilarious that in between their chants that Democrats are socialists and communists, the far right also claims that Democrats are financiers, venture capitalists, hedge fund managers, bankers and fascists. All five contradict the teachings of socialism and communism.

Your anger is misplaced. You cannot fault human nature being what it is for being greedy. But we have the means to temper institutions in this country and that was supposed to be financial regulatory reform after these people nearly wrecked the economy. Congress is not doing its job in passing strong reforms to stop banks from indulging in these schemes that affect the world economy.

I do not think so. However,the GM bankruptcy sure hurt a lot of people. The bond holders should have been in line for something,but the courts cut them out completely.... that is NOT normal procedure in court.

Yes, it involves face paint and sacrificing a virgin. Then the ritual is pay off the lobbyist, who in turn pay off Republican politicians, who in turn votes to deregulate Wall St, who then screws the American people.

Just graduation ceremonies when they get the MBA degrees, I think.
