And how much money do we give the Banks in subsidies and how much did we spend in taxpayer bailouts in 2008 and 2009 with no strings attached? And the Banks still have the nerve to charge outrageous fees or do what they want to your bank account by changing terms when they feel like it??!! If Ray Ray and Pookie and 'nem can get 20 years for slinging rock on the block, the corporate persons (as deemed by the Supreme Court) need to face serious jail time.

This has to be the BIGGEST sign EVER that shows that corruption and deceit, bribery and conspiracy runs DEEP within our government and corporate and banking systems. I mean .... even Stevie Wonder could SEE that if what these criminals .... people are doing isn't a crime ... it sure in the hell SHOULD be!! And since nobody's gone to jail YET for ANY these financial-based crimes ... then it's probably a sure bet that it'll never happen. They are a more close-knit and protected group than a...

Still, no matter what, it all points back to Congress [and in some cases state legislatures], that Wall Street/Big Banks were able to do any of this in the first place.

I've been preaching that for years, and that fact is the reason why there is no way they really want people to stop using or selling drugs in this country. If every drug dealer stopped selling and every addict stopped buying drugs all of a sudden in America, it would crash our economy, and they know it. Which, brings me to the fact that it is also evidence that the so-called "War On Drugs" is and has...

This is a major breakthrough towards ending...
