    As I read this story and comments, for some reason a song melody keeps popping up in the dirty recesses of my mind along with the lyrics……

    If I were an An-tho-ny Weiner, all the porn stars would be in love with me….and IF I was an An-tho-ny Weiner, my wife would be mad as hell with meeeee ee ee……..

    Have the facts about Weiner's tweet been exposed yet?

    Cute, very cute professor. 😉


    No, who/whomever was wearing boxer briefs..

    As I am watching for the umpteenth time "Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room", it strikes me how even though this documentary keeps getting shown over and over again on CNBC, the very people who made Enron possible are still in power which is why people like Weiner get caught and nothing happens.

    Not only that, many of the "innovations" using "financial architecture" (accounting trickery) Enron introduced to "deregulated free markets" have since been adopted by the Wall Street/DC establishment. Can the accounting for major banks become even more opaque that they are today?

    There is a good reason why corruption today is so brazen and out of control: we not only neglected to root out the Enron in our government, we embraced these people and their ideas and deployed them on a larger scale.

    Regulation is supposed to be about checks and balances where regulators, accounting firms, law firms, and investors have incentives to say "no". With corruption as we have today, those who are supposed to say "no" are all part of the scam. EVERYTHING is "too big to fail". We are now "too big to succeed".

    That is why we keep unearthing of these incidents of blatant corruption and nothing ever happens. That is why Barney Frank and their ilk, even though caught in flagrante dilecto, are never prosecuted. That is why nothing will come of this Weiner episode either. The corruption is too widespread. "There but for the grace of God go I" is the prevailing barrier between a free society and the tyranny that is spreading out of control.

    How does a society save itself from such corruption? Everyone is on the take including most of us who won't surrender our "tax breaks" and welfare checks. It is hard for me to see how this ends well.

    A spokesman for Rep. Anthony Weiner, New York Democrat, told The Daily Caller the Congressman’s team has “retained counsel” and is exploring the “proper next steps” after his official Twitter account posted a picture of a man’s erect penis underneath gray boxer shorts. The internet-driven scandal has come to be known online as “Weinergate,” a pun on the Congressman’s last name.

    “We’ve retained counsel to explore the proper next steps and to advise us on what civil or criminal actions should be taken,” Weiner spokesman Dave Arnold said in an email. “This was a prank. We are loath to treat it as more, but we are relying on professional advice.”
