Continuing to Sow the Wind...

...and awaiting the Whirlwind that will grow from it.


Just another blazing example of my "Asteroid Theory" of the financial and political elites in action. The "Asteroid Theory" is that no one can be as willfully blind, as crassly greedy and as eager to destroy the fundamental pillars of trust and sound banking upon which our modern economy rests as the Banksters and Wall Street Playerz and the lickspittles they own in D.C. have been over the last ten years - for the sheer fact that they are burning down the house in which they live. Therefore, the elites must all know that a world-killing asteroid is on the way and they are all just living it up today with no expectation that there will be a future to plan for. This is just a running joke on my part, but as I continue to read about the foreclosure-MBS scam and the fact that Prosecutors and Judges are actively working to destroy the very Rule of Law that gives them their power, I begin to question whether it is a joke or not. No one, especially in the realm of Prosecuting Attorney - known to be unsympathetic hardasses in the main, can remain this blind to vast criminal undertakings can they?

Sigh.

Matt Taibbi shines a little light on the subject. Amazing when I have to turn to Rolling Stone for investigative journalism into this topic. And mainline newspapers wonder why their business is cratering...

Courts Helping Banks Screw Over Homeowners

...Foreclosure lawyers told me one other thing about the rocket docket. The hearings, they said, aren't exactly public. "The judges might give you a hard time about watching," one lawyer warned. "They're not exactly anxious for people to know about this stuff." Inwardly, I laughed at this — it sounded like typical activist paranoia. The notion that a judge would try to prevent any citizen, much less a member of the media, from watching an open civil hearing sounded ridiculous. Fucked-up as everyone knows the state of Florida is, it couldn't be that bad. It isn't Indonesia. Right?
