Front page spanking: Bankers Flogged


Oh how those tarts at CNN tease us.

Personally, I'm thinking it's time to get all French Revolution on those bankers' asses. And maybe throw in a few Republican senators for good measure.

I whole heartedly agree. When you think about the millions of people that are, or are going to be, in big financial trouble because of these idiots, while they walk away their pockets stuffed with millions, it kind of makes you think that Guillotining is to good fer em.

Nah Guillotining is not the option i would choice, pillory them bare bottom and hand a paddle on one side and an cane on the other for people to use

While flogging and paddling bank executives, mortgage brokers, Alan Greenspan, and the rest of the lot would be more fun for us, I have to concur that it would be too easy on them. The Catholic in me is a bit squeamish about capital punishment, but the rest of me wants to see heads on spikes.

I read that during the Revolution, when some women were deemed too "soft" in the eyes of the sans culotte revolutionaries, it happened that they were unceremoniously grabbed by a mob of female sans-culottes, their rears end were bared and they got a public and sound spanking. It's said that famous revolutionary woman Theroigne de Mericourt became mad after such a public flogging or paddling.

I knew you'd be able to share a great spanking-related vignette regarding the French Revolution -- merci!

the heads on spike is on of the reason for on-display, do-it-yourself flogging. You get to work off the frustration, and think about it if everyone that had those feeling could work it out on them, it would be no small punishment.

capital punishment is only acceptable to me when the continued life represent an on going danger to the community.

in the case simple baring them from holding a similar position gets rid of their threat.

In some countries, there are some that suggest reinstating corporal punishment for young offenders. I disapprove of that because it would in general just make some misguided youths even more bitter than they are.

There is one case though where I'd accept corporal punishment - rich, powerful, and vain people that think they are above laws meant for mere ordinary mortals. A good motherly public spanking would take them down a peg or two.

rogue -- Yeah, when all is said and done, I know I would actually be appalled if capital punishment were used. China has been shooting some of its most egregious financial criminals and I find it horrifying, even if I may joke about heads on spikes.

Marie -- Absolutely agree. Any sort of judicial corporal punishment would -- as most of our judicial system does -- fall too heavily on the poor and minorities. As far as I'm concerned, corporal punishment should remain exclusively for consenting adults.

@Natty: Agreed. But it feels nice to fantasize about some annoying greedy bitch getting a public birching!
