And you wondered where the real Mafia was?

One realizes that if this were China and these people committed the sames crimes, than they would have most likely have been tried, lined up against a wall, and shot within twenty four hours, four years ago.

And there kidneys and other useful viscera would be currently assisting in the continued existence of wealthy Asian businessmen and their wives.

But this isn’t China of course……..

The people who were all about jailing people after the London riots for taking some water bottles from stores are, of course, now conspicuous in their absence.

This is the best evidence I’ve seen yet for the idea that too big to fail is too big to exist.

It is time for the question to be squarely faced: Do governments rule the world, or do the big banks?

If we want a world where the governments rule, then the power of the big banks must be broken.

Rule Of Law seems to be just a theory these days. All the laws they broke and some desperate dipstick holds up a convince store with nothing more than words gets jail time. Guy gets caught with a bit of weed a few times and he’s a criminal. Boys at the top have it sweet. Deregulation is a nightmare that should be turned around. Truth, justice and…aw fuck it.

Taibbi nails it. From his conclusion:

This is bullshit, and exactly the opposite of the truth, but it’s what our current government believes. From JonBenet to O.J. to Robert Blake, Americans have long understood that the rich get good lawyers and get off, while the poor suck eggs and do time. But this is something different. This is the government admitting to being afraid to prosecute the very powerful – something it never did even in the heydays of Al Capone or Pablo Escobar, something it didn’t do even with Richard Nixon. And when you admit that some people are too important to prosecute, it’s just a few short steps to the obvious corollary – that everybody else is unimportant enough to jail.

An arrestable class and an unarrestable class. We always suspected it, now it’s admitted. So what do we do?

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...

The Abortion Restriction That’s Too Extreme for Most Pro-Lifers
Earlier this month, lawmakers in Kansas ended this session's debate over abortion on a surprisingly low-key note. The Republican leadership shepherded two minor tweaks to existing abortion policies through the legislature, while staving off a far more contentious measure: a bill that would criminalize abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy. The bill's advocates ...

Women on Front of Bundy Standoff - the Latest From the Front
But the scene above took place four years before Monica, in 1994, long before Clinton handed his enemies a scandal on a platter that seemingly made such references acceptable. It was not at a Republican caucus or Christian Coalition meeting, but at a gathering of right-wing "Patriots" who had come to hear about forming militias and common-law courts and defending their gun rights ...

Russ Campbell’s Blog: Military Threat Is Essential to Effective Diplomacy
Pres­i­dent Theodore Roo­sevelt fa­mously said: "speak softly, and carry a big stick." His idea was to ne­go­ti­ate peace­fully, but with the ever-pre­sent threat of the "big stick," mil­i­tary ac­tion. Per­haps in this proverb lies is a valu­able les­son for lead­ers of the West­ern democ­ra­cies, and es­pe­cially for Pres­i­dent Obama. On the week­end, well co­or­di­nated and armed mil­i­tants at­tacked gov­ern­ment build­ings in six cities ...

TurboTax Maker Linked to ‘Grassroots’ Campaign Against Free, Simple Tax Filing - ProPublica
The letters and op-eds don't mention that, as ProPublica laid out last year, return-free filing might allow tens of millions of Americans to file their taxes for free and in minutes. Or that, under proposals authored by several federal lawmakers, it would be voluntary, using information the government already receives from banks and employers and that taxpayers could adjust. Or that the concept ...

It has never mattered to me that thirty million people might think I'm wrong. The number of people who thought Hitler was right did not make him right... Why do you necessarily have to be wrong jus because a few million people think you are? -- Why they don't play my stuff on the radio
