POINTING FINGERS, DOUBLE STANDARDS: Hmmmmm……

Posted by Leonard Steinberg on May 14, 2011

Everyone seems to be pointing fingers these days with horrible double standards…..here are some examples:

1) Pakistan is OUTRAGED that the USA ‘invaded’ their land to kill the world’s worst terrorist and the government now demands that these outrageous breaches of their borders end immediately…. even though they housed this monster for years in their back yard, a monster who is responsible for killing more Muslims than any single person in the past 10 years. His little clan just killed another 80 Pakistanis this week. Hmmmmmm……

2) The Picard attorneys going after the Madoff stolen funds, have just requested approval for their fees….. David Sheehan, one of the lead attorney’s billings equate to him working 9 hours a day, 7 days a week, every single day on the case, at over $ 800.00 per hour…..hmmmmmm….. They have recovered almost $ 10 billion, but of that 70% was recovered from one person alone. ┬áParalegals and library staff are being paid $ 250/hour……do they really earn $ 500k per year? Hmmmmmm…….

3) US Bankers who borrowed billions of taxpayer dollars to clean up their financials, often blaming lax lawmakers for their woes and are now requiring intense scrutiny for borrowers (a good thing, although some rules are silly) have in many instances delayed the sale of un-sold units and repayment of construction loans……to collect more interest payments. Hmmmmmm……

4) ┬áSome New York City developers are asking how they can get higher than pre-2008 pricing while delivering a lesser product….Hmmmmmm….
