Caught on Wall St

The elite white liberal establishment is a minority. The white poor is not part of that. The white working class is not part of that. If you really want to talk about being dependent on government, $16 trillion for Wall Street, not one of them gone to jail involved in the criminal activity linked to predatory lending, market manipulation or insider trading.

The government protects them. Jamal gets caught with a crack bag; he is going to jail. But Mr. McGillicuddy gets caught on Wall Street; he's protected by the government. Neither administration -- Bush, Obama -- have any investigations, no prosecutions at all.

So the folk who are really dependent get interest-free loans from the Federal Reserve. Wouldn't it be nice if students could get interest-free loans? We're living in a society where everybody is up for sale. Everything is up for sale. They have sold their souls for a mess of Obama pottage.

Is he going to put himself on the line for poor people? Is he going to have an honest conversation about drones? To assassinate American citizens based on executive power? That's not that is authoritarian. That's autocratic. That's crypto-fascist!
