If you still believe that President Oblame is holding true to his campaign promises,
If you believe he is still trying to make a better America for you all,
If you are still riding a “slippery slope” with him about his seeming lack of willingness or ability to prosecute wrong doing, and,
If you do not feel uneasy about his drone attacks on “suspected” terrorists,
Then please take a look at what Jon Stewart recently says when he “Questions Obama’s Values” in a segment called “Priorities USA“
It would seem the Oblame presidency could have used its “bully pulpit” to start pressing for strong prosecutions of the biggest drug dealers, terrorism funders, and down right mafia scum in the world; Wall Street bankers and their partners in crime, money-laundering banks.
Even more pathetic is Congress. The PBN web page says “Many of the same issues examined in the film will take center stage tomorrow during a hearing of a House Financial Services Subcommittee.” This is a classic fallacy, that the system can be fixed by testifying before Congress. If you believe that, I have a bridge for sale in Istanbul.
PBS Frontline “The Untouchables” said there have been “No arrests of senior Wall Street executives.”

Officials in the United States Attorney General’s office were quoted as saying it could “prove beyond a reasonable doubt” HSBC violated anti-money laundering laws…failure to adequately monitor over $200 trillion…in wire transfers.
Attorney General Holder said that there was no banker or wall street crook who was too big for the DOJ to put in jail. So what did his people do? “The DOJ struck a deal allowing HSBC to pay a fine equal to one month’s profit.”
At the same time, the fees that banks, especially HSBC, charge for holding and using our money went up while the interest rates they pay continue to be paltry at best an non-existent at worst.
Yours truly has a great solution for these fat cat con artists who bilk old people out of their retirement funds and who created THE major financial crisis of the 21st Century. Share with me a sublime moment, “Capital Punishment for Bankers“.
And while retribution is still strong, why not Capital Punishment for the Corporations which frenzy feed these greedy bastards? Take them over, clean them up, sell them to the highest bidder, and put the guilty staff and management in the docks. Never, ever, let these people practice in the finance field again. Additionally, any money they may make on the lecture circuit or from selling books of their “story” should be confiscated at 100% under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and use it to pay back the poor folks who were devastated by their cruel and crooked schemes.
“Under RICO…the racketeer must forfeit all ill-gotten gains and interest in any business gained…RICO also permits a private individual harmed by the actions of such an enterprise to file a civil suit (and) can collect damages triple the amount of actual damages.” In other words, take them down and out.
Many of you voted for Oblame and now that he cannot be re-elected he is laughing all the way to the bank. (hmm, I wonder do you think he uses HSBC?)
Democrats or Republicans, it no longer makes any difference, they all feed from the same hog though–unless you start to do something about it.
