I know that you all are comfortable with the thought that the international banking system is consistent in one thing…delivering quality services to the less privileged.

Since it has gone down the memory-hole as other nations’ civil wars and other more important news (Bieber!) have occurred, let us return to austerity’s poster-country, Greece.

Why don’t we just admit that Grover Norquist’s work here in these United States is, well, done? Yes, the federal government is technically back in business, but only just in time to let Foster Farms continue selling salmonella-tainted chicken, JPMorgan Chase escape its latest fraud with a laughably small fine, and Sinclair Broadcast Group snap up a dozen or so more local television stations. And that’s just this week.

Pretty much, oh 99 percent, of the country knows that the pay ratio of corporate CEOs to their workers is obscene.
But to the CEOs the real obscenity is that people know just how obscene.

I know it is hard to believe but having those who defrauded America get off any punishment as they whine about taxes does not mean they are anyone’s heroes…outside of those who theoretically govern them.

Too Big To Fail bank JP Morgan Chase will stop making student loans according to documents reviewed by Reuters. According to the documents the megabank is leaving the student loan business out of concern that competition with the federal government will reduce profit opportunities. But given the state of the student loan market the move will inevitably raise other questions.

If the government isn’t careful we might start to suspect a double-standard.

While it’s certainly no surprise to find that the government has turned to yet another corrupt monopoly to carry out its dirty work against ordinary citizens, I seriously question the quality of their co-conspirator, Verizon. If we are going to have a lawless corporate behemoth shoveling our personal data, or rather, in the parlance du jour, “meta” data, into the insatiable maw of the new police state, wouldn’t it be nicer if the company were also capable of performing its core function adequately?

It’s quite a week when the entire MSM suddenly gets sufficient oxygen into its hairspray-addled brain to be shocked, shocked, I tell you, at the fact that the Obama administration has been, well, behaving like Loyal Bushies on meth for the last four years. Mainly, because team Obama was just a tiny bit nicer about how they icily disdained several parts of the Bill of Rights, not least that first one, the punitive prosecutions could continue. the wiretapping comfortably privatized, and the illegality and cronyism of the Bush era would be magically transformed into cuddly bipartisan consensus.
Trouble is, that sort of thing only works until it doesn’t.
