Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

good point, but then I would argue all the people involved in the "value" cahin of mortgages is/was a cheater.

To say that cheating is ok because others do it is the wrong way. Cheating is always bad.

I would rather argue the other way and say that the big boys should be punished for their cheating and not cheat because the others did it. If every one cheats then this equates to lawlessness and then society is doomed. In many ways I think this process is already underway in some countries and this will lead to revolution-like stuff happening. Unless of course, everything magically becomes good again...

That the big banks got rescued by honest little people tax payer money is not fair, sure, but it is no reason to be a cheater like the big boys too. At least that's how I see it...
