FedUpUSA – Bear Stearns Protest, April 25, 2008
FedUpUSA On Glenn Beck August 21, 2008
It is disappointing to me that the Tea Party has gone so far astray from what it was intended to be. It was always supposed to be about stopping the looting and starting the prosecuting. Today, as so eloquently put by the film, Inside Job, not a single person responsible for this catastrophe has gone to jail. To the contrary, the same people are still in charge of the same enormous financial institutions, and those same institutions continue to rob us blind by contributing large sums of money to the campaigns of those in our government who allow these institutions and their officers to remain un-prosecuted by writing laws that exempt them from the criminal penalties that would apply to the rest of us.
There’s a word for this: Kleptocracy
[klep-tok-ruh-see] noun, plural ‐cies.a government or state in which those in power exploit national resources and steal; rule by a thief or thieves.
