Sometimes It's Nice To Be Small Fry
A Morgan Stanley compliance officer and her husband pleaded guilty today to insider-trading charges just hours before another official of the firm and her husband were arrested on identical charges in a separate case.A compliance officer? All the compliance officers I have known have been extremely focused on their jobs. I just can't fathom one of them doing something like this - but apparently she admitted it. The amount of money they got versus the penalties she would have been acutely aware of is extremely disproportionate.
Honestly. The system is rife with stuff of this nature. I've watched 29 years of this. The games get more complicated, but in the end they're all the same.
I should write a book.

We could stick to the stuff that the statute of limitations has run out on.
Before they come for you, come south. There are way too many guns around here, they'd never get you. It would be a bit like deer season if anyone tried such a thing.
