Comment on Rubin this morning...

Discussion in 'Wall St. News' started by syswizard, Feb 27, 2008.

  1. by Charlie Gasparino of CNBC (approx. 8 am EST):
    "yeah, Rubin's making 20 million dollars at Citicorp for doing nothing".

    I'm just wondering....would Rubin have grounds for suing either Gasparino or CNBC over that comment ?
  2. Daal


    yeah but only after suspending the constitution
  3. Bush Adminstration has been making great strides on just that very thing...
  4. Rubin's making $10k per hour.
    Could Charlie be jealous ?
  5. Repeat after me "kleptocracy".
  6. Simple and on=target:
    A kleptocracy (sometimes cleptocracy) (root: klepto+kratein = rule by thieves) is a government that extends the personal wealth and political power of government officials and the ruling class (collectively, kleptocrats) at the expense of the population. A kleptocratic government often goes beyond merely awarding the prime contracts and civil service posts to friends (a common feature of corrupt governments). They also create projects and programs at a policy level which serve the primary purpose of funneling money out of the treasury and into the pockets of the executive with little if any regard for the logic, viability or necessity of those projects.
  7. Well at least you weren't making anti-semitic remarks with "thesniper" this time.

    It's a start.

    No - to sue for defamation, the allegations actually have to be untrue.
  9. LMAO...that's great.
