Roseanne Barr Says Wealthy Bankers Should Be Sent to Re-Education Camps or Be Beheaded [JWF}

Relax, folks, if you're sitting on a stash of more than $100 million but are not a banker then you're probably spared the guillotine. I'm guessing this means wealthy Hollywood types and Obama mascot Warren Buffett are safe. For now. I'm waiting on the "satire" defense for this idiocy at any moment. Fortunately my wife convinced me to invest our vast holdings into an offshore venture run by some nice Nigerian fellows she met through Facebook.

Comedienne and actress Roseanne Barr had a strong message for bankers who contributed to the economic crisis: Return the profits or be beheaded.

The comedienne and self-proclaimed presidential candidate appeared on the RT television program "Keiser Report" and said if she were president, she would bring back the guillotine as a form of capital punishment for the "worst of the worst of the guilty."

"I, first, would allow the guilty bankers to pay back anything over $100 million (in) personal wealth, because I believe in the maximum wealth of $100 million," Barr said. "If they're unable to live on that amount, they should go to re-education camps. And if that doesn't work, they should be beheaded."

The show she was appearing on is called Russia Today. Oddly enough my cable system doesn't carry that channel. Video below.
