Some Socialist!

How the Obama Administration protected Wall Street banksters from their richly-deserved prosecution.  If you really want to understand just how corrupt the American political system has become, this is a good lesson.  In the final analysis, money talks and bullshit walks.  As long as we continue to allow Wall Street to purchase our democracy, this is what we will continue to get, plutocracy.

Witless Protection

Peter Simonyi, a former vice president of Goldman Sachs, is now working for Cong. Darrell Issa (R-California) under a new name, working to thwart financial regulations.  Ya know, at the very least, they could at least PRETEND not to be total whores for Wall Street.  Just to preserve the illusion.  Throw us a frickin’ bone here, Congress!

Suffer the Little Banksters…

…while bailed-out banks are sliding towards collapse again, Wall Street looks up from the taxpayer-funded government teat long enough to whine to Politico that Obama doesn’t kiss their asses enough.  There’s just not enough contempt in the world for me to direct towards the gangster parasites who very nearly destroyed the entire planetary economy with their stupidity and greed.
