    drug money, gets a 2% fine on its profit, no jail time.

    The evil is compounded by the reality that banks routinely launder drug money, enabling the business and in effective partnership with the dealers. If bankers suffered for this it would be a major blow to drug-dealers. If bankers revealed who they were dealing with, it would be even a bigger blow.

    But they don't have to, they just have to count a 98% profit on their dealings, nobody's going to hurt them. After all, how can you win elections without banker's bribes? Or do they call all that money "free speech" these days?


    Until we break the corporate virtual monopoly on what we hear and see, we keep losing, don't matter what we do.

      Yep.  And it is going to take a revolution because Obama has obviously received his own death threat from the TOP 1%ers, the Federal Reserve,  the Geithners of this country, the Mafia, the small-time gangsters and Mr. Kissinger, Mr. Bush (all of them), the Cheney family and you know the rest!
