Starkers, why waste the rope? Yeah, it could be reused but who'd want to with their slime on it?
To be honest, I would not want to see them on the end of a rope... the sentiment is just a way of expressing the anger I feel for the greed driven destruction they have caused, particularly to those who can least afford the consequences of this financial meltdown. However, while I am a non-violent pacifist who does not believe in taking another human life, do do believe these people should be punishied for the damage they've caused... siezing their assets would be one way, and prison terms for those who broke the law to profit.
Meanwhile, Sarah Palin's 'Igloos Across America' project is gaining momentum and backers. An un-named Alaskan engineer has put forward an idea to save on power/refrigeration to lowerinfrastructure costs. This engineer, reportedly a relative of Palin, proposes to cut off a piece of the Arctic Circle and tow it South to somewhere in US central, thus negating the need for artificial cooling by naturally lowering the temperature with Arctic ice.
Another backer of the scheme, a great white hunter, is going to herd up all the polar bears and shoo them all over the Russian border to Alaska... the idea being to eliminate the eventuality of yellow snow and ice, something he believes would present a health hazrd to igloo dwellers and burden the health system.
Apparently, Ms Palin is quite enthusiastic and excited about the project, believing it will completely eliminate homelessness right across america. OK, so she's a gun toting moose murderer, but I have to commend Ms Palin for investigating an alternative to the housing/mortgage crisis to what those reverse Robin Hoods are thinking... to give to the rich so they can keep stealing from the poor.
