      But it now seems like business as usual in Washington, where corporate criminality is not a major priority, and justice is only an empty promise made on the backs of the victims of these crimes, directed mainly at gullible voters before elections.

    •  And that's fine. You may interpret it any way (0+ / 0-)

      you wish.

      Me?

      I look to the Federal Government / Department of Justice to reign in local governments, particularly the police, when they are out-of-control or appearing as if their policy is a total disregard of our rights.

      And when I see a Department of Justice headed by a Corporate Counsel of Chiquita, I have to ask myself: Why?  What does this portend?

      You want to see what an attack on Obama really looks like?  Here you go:

      Three Chiefs of Staff from Wall Street Banks

      Publicly Defending Wall Street Predators as "Savvy Businessmen" who work hard for their "Success"

      Creating a Deficit Commission and giving its co-chair to Alan F'ing Simpson (cause we need everyone to focus on the deficit, don'tcha know!)

      Calling for Renewal of the odious Patriot Act

      Creating more Free Trade Job Off-shoring Treaties (Panama, S. Korea, Columbia) - AND - promising another Free Trade Treaty which will be LARGER than NAFTA (Trans Pacific Partnership -- look it up if you have the stomach for it)

      Bernanke

      Summers

      Geithner

      Holder

      Tapping GE's Off-shore loving CEO for advice on "Jobs" and "Competitiveness"

      Meeting in Secret w/ Pharma

      Reassuring the Wall Street Predators by proclaiming he (Obama) is the only one between them and the pitchforks (recall that BOTH the Left & Right HATED Wall Street)... so tell me which constituency was Obama serving when he defended Wall Street?

      The "Jobs" Act

      Appointing a Monsanto Lobbyist Vice President to the FDA (SAME guy Clinton did the exact same shit with in the 90's)

      And those are just a few highlights.

      Secret Kill Lists, anyone?

      Homeland Security coordinating national crackdowns against Occupy, anyone?

      DEA going after marijuana clinics which the people of certain states have said they want legal, anyone?

      How's that Iran saber-rattling going?

      This close to the election, I'm wondering why I don't see any Hope & Change signs?

      I voted for Change. Not Three Chiefs of Staff from Wall Street Banks. Not Bernanke, Summers, Geithner, Holder, Simpson, or a Monsanto Lobbyist. Not more Free Trade. Not more Patriot Act. Not defending Wall Street's Savvy Businessmen.
