Nationalize the banks, split them up, re-regulate them to within an inch of their lives, send the ponzi schemers to jail, but for heaven's sake no more secret no-strings attached money to these liars and these crooks. We're going to end up nationalizing most of this crap anyway, why not do it now rather than burning more tons of money first that needs to go to healthcare, infrastucture, education, and creating a renewable energy economy? A private enterprise too big to fail is a private enterprise too big to exist. These fraudulent financial instruments and these secret funnelings of bailout cash involve some real criminality and that stuff needs to be punished for once, else these would-be aristocratic scumbags will literally pound the planet to dust while they party on an air-conditioned beach in Dubai. We the People are too big to fail, how 'bout them apples? And we certainly can't rationally destroy the country to insulate a handful of smug self-serving bastards from the consequences of their criminal irresponsibility and stupid greed. Enough already!
