Viewing Porn for Eight Hours a Day Will Not Get You Fired From the SEC

Well I guess it is clear that the SEC doesn't care too much what goes down on their PP&E, even if it makes them look horrible and like total enablers.

WaPo:

None of the Securities and Exchange Commission employees caught using government computers to view pornographic images has been fired, according to the agency.

The SEC inspector general investigated 28 employees and five contractors for accessing inappropriate images and Web sites, according to a report released late last week.

Of the employees, eight resigned and six were suspended for periods lasting one to 14 days, the inspector general, H. David Kotz, said in an letter Tuesday to Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa). Five were issued formal reprimands, six were issued informal counseling or warning letters, and three are currently facing disciplinary action.

All five contractors caught were removed from their contracts, Kotz added.

As some of you know, JDA used to be quite the shit disturber in her younger days (um, used to be? Whatever) and spent a good 25% of her middle and high school days in detention or suspension. I wasn't a bad kid, I was just bored to death with remedial worksheets and crap geared towards the idiots of my generation, most of which was more appropriate for 4th graders than middle schoolers. Anyway, I can speak from experience when I say a 14 day "vacation" is not exactly a punishment, it just meant that the SEC porn addicts wouldn't have to shower, get dressed, and commute into work to spend 8 hours viewing porn. Anyone care to guess what the suspended employees did all day?

Probably the same thing I did when I was suspended from school. Duh.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

why is it that people who make a living at sea (fishermen, Navy, river boat pilots, etc.) have the BEST sense of humor.

Oh...Captain Carl is a salty dog
Who sailed the seven seas'es
And he's always sure to scrub down his mast
So's he don't get no diseases

true story... one of my old employees was in the Navy during Vietnam. Had a low draft number and he could see the writing on the wall so rather than go pound the ground and possibly get his ass shot off, he enlisted in the Navy. One of the guys on the ship was prohibited from going ashore. He kept on hitting the really nasty, dirty whore houses and would come back with sort of STD no one in the white man's world had ever seen or heard of so they took away his shore leave. He couldn't stay away from the stuff even though it was KILLING him. Remember our discussion of yeast infections....

well, how's this for a Caligula style three way? What do you get when you throw a SEC regulator, an old Jew and the regulator's mother in the sack? Yikes! Even creepier than Nosferatu I don't want to know.
