  •  Not to mention the f*ckers who lied us into (7+ / 0-)

    a war that cost trillions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of lives. Nope, free pass.

    I just finished reading Neil Barofsky's Bailout, about TARP and the bank/AIG payoffs. If you wanna read something that'll make your blood boil ...

    As he says toward the end, the banks are larger than ever, they know if they do stupid shit again gov't will bail them out once more because they really are too big too fail, and the money we gave them to help homeowners was used for very little of that -- instead they used to it buy more banks and reward themselves. And not one of them is in jail.

    •  Can't bring myself to read it yet....I know enough (3+ / 0-)

      about the grift right now and I know myself well enough  to know that I'd end up blinded by rage and I need to focus on the here and now for the moment with so much at stake.

      Just the sheer scope of the consequences of the stolen 2000 election continues to become evermore mindbending. I knew in 2000 that we were going to end up well and truly fucked, but never could I have imagined the magnitude, the arrogance and the depths of criminality that everyone in that damned administration was capable of .And 25 or 30 years from now when they really start declassifying shit, God only knows what those immoral fuckers really did.
