    I'm curious as to why 900 stormtroopers in riot gear and high-powered rifles -- basically paramilitaries -- were sent to evict Occupy LA protestors for very minor public code violations ...

    Whereas John Corzine walks free despite the appearance that he stole $1.2 billion from American farmers, dealers and commodities traders.

    I guess they are still gathering evidence.

    But when Corzine gets taken in, I want to see bulldozers, a police tank, military helicopters and hundreds of cops lay seige to his house and leave his property a smoldering ruin.

      I won't even say that someone should pepper spray him in the face.

      But it's odd how the power of the state only seems to be turned on the little people while the elites roam free with impunity, regardless of what they do.

      hyperbole? The term applies only to what snipers use.
