Real Housewives' fraud charges a travesty

It's a travesty when two of the stars of Bravo's "Real Housewives of New Jersey" face 50 years in prison for fraud, when HSBC, BofA, Goldman, JP Morgan and other Wall Street banks can commit massive fraud, nearly bankrupt the entire global financial system, and nothing happens.

Teresa and Joe Giudice are facing 50 years in prison for falsifying loan documents dating back to 2001 to 2008, in addition to lying about their financial condition when they filed for bankruptcy several years ago. The two have been indicted on 39 counts of fraud and face major prison time. Read here.

Meanwhile, HSBC is caught laundering billions in illicit money, BofA fraudulently foreclosed on homeowners and took away their homes, Goldman admits to fraud and Jamie Dimon is in flagrant violation of Sarbannes-Oxley with his "tempest in a teapot" whale trade, yet nothing happens.

What a travesty.

One set of rules for Corporate Cronies, their Politicians and career officials. And 'justice' for everyone else.
Nothing has changed on this front in the last century or two!
