  •  Just an observation from Mr. Holder's testimony (5+ / 0-)

    it is better to rob the entire country than to touch marijuana.

    You can do all manner of financial crime if your super-wealthy: Holder says the US just doesn't have the balls to prosecute them successfully. (No, I am not changing that.)

    But they will hound marijuana legalizing states.

    Prioities.

    Crash economy via stewaling? A-OK.

    Stock up on guns and ammo? Go for it!

    Touch marijuana: You're going to jail.

    Vote to legalize marijuana in your own state? You hate America and you may actually be a 'combatant' as we do have a WAR on marijuana. We might have a drone for you.

    Eric Holder is a fine representative of what America finds important.

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

      lot of money to be made by pharmaceuticals by keeping marijuana illegal.  Got to protect corporate profits; it is what the nation is dedicated to.  

      Justice For Will Will spent his brief, courageous life fighting for the rights we all take for granted. Please share his story to support the fight!

    •  On the other hand, (0+ / 0-)

      we have states investigating the big banks for not providing adequate information to entities that bought their bad debts:

      The largest U.S. banks face a multi-state investigation into whether they helped debt collectors pursue faulty judgments against credit card customers, according to people familiar with the matter.

      At issue is whether weak record-keeping by banks or a failure to pass accurate information to collection agencies harmed consumers.

      The allegations against the banks echo those central to last year's $25 billion federal-state mortgage settlement to resolve charges that the banks "robo-signed" documents and pursued foreclosures with faulty information.
