In a desperate bid to evade the international reach of US authorities Snowden has applies for asylum to Wall Street. “Where else can I go?”, says Snowden. Pointing out that Wall Street ripped off 10 trillion dollars in 2008 and no one went to jail Snowden thinks this is the only place on Earth that is beyond the reach of the Justice Department. “If they can get away with that,” says Snowden, this must be the best place in the world to hide!”

      It must be a joke. Anyone who thinks working on Wall Street makes you automatically immune from prosecution is naive. Wall Street just happens to be one of the few places where you can steal enough money to bribe EVERYONE in DC. You also have to make sure you are only stealing from the middle class. Bernie Madoff went to jail because he stole from the rich; idiot.

      If the money stopped flowing to the pols, you can bet your ass all those ridiculous “Law and Order” stories where the DA goes after the rich white guy would actually start showing up in the headlines.

        No, it does not matter if you steal from the poor, middle class or rich. Each can be excused if… you participate in fascistic public-private economical scam on the side of the Progressive Ideology.
        Corzine stole directly from the rich… and is yet to be touched, never mind prosecuted. Just one example.

    Businesses managed to get themselves a one year extension from Pres Obama for the ObamaCare insurance mandate. Individuals not so much.

    • Dallas says:

      I didn’t want an extension. Businesses did.

      If you want an extension, see me first.

    Yes – it’s a joke post.

    It seems like all the traitors of this country hang out on Wall Street.

    Brilliant move by Snowden.

    He is in good company.

    Next thing you know, he will be the CEO of a multinational corporation in the financial sector.

  6. orchidcup says:

    Hold on a minute. Stop the train.

    According to the statement of National intelligence director James Clapper, “The notion that we are trolling through everyone’s emails, and voyeuristically reading them, or listening to everyone’s phone calls, is on its face absurd. We couldn’t do it even if we wanted to, and I assure you, we don’t want to.”

    So then how is Edward Snowden guilty of treason if everything he leaked isn’t true?

    James Clapper and everyone else in the intelligence apparatus denies the government is spying on you at all. Therefore, Snowden can’t be engaged in “treason” because the information he leaked isn’t real.

    In other words, the two statements that “Snowden is a traitor” and “the information he leaked isn’t true” can’t both be accurate.

    Edward Snowden is pulling a giant prank.

    Therefore, Edward Snowden is not a traitor. He is a prankster.

    I rest my case.

    Come on back home, Snowden. And stop fooling around, you silly prankster.

    • Greg Allen says:

      How is this a prank?

      He seems like an ideologue, not a prankster.

      With, BTW, ideals that at lot of us believe in — at least his core message.

      I agree with Snowden that the government should not be assembling a gigantic dossier on every American. Especially, without us knowing it. In a democracy, we get a say in these things.

      I couldn’t care less if he is a patriot or not — but I do care about the issue he raised.

        Satire, my friend, satire.

        • bobbo, we think with words, and flower with ideas says:

          Yes indeed but for someone “trying” to be precise about what the Const says and doesn’t say…”no one” claims Snowden has committed treason. The concept is “espionage.”

  7. Greg Allen says:

    The ten trillion taken from our pensions and life-savings was the “conservative tax” .

    Bubbles, fraud and economic collapse are the predictable and inevitable cost of de-regulation.

    Keep voting for leaders who believe in de-regulation and non-reglation and we’ll get hit with the conservative tax again.

    • bobbo, we think with words, and flower with ideas says:

      …a conservative tax huh? Very sublime idea there Greg. We need to polish it just a bit as “I believe” conservatives want the stability and honesty that good regulatory enforcement brings.

      So, who is “for” deregulation?? Certainly a criminal element of too large to fail international business interests? The short con artist. As negative on the subject as I am, I would not call that the conservative mind set. OTOH…I suppose laissez faire is an element or even a large block of conservative thinking that leads to this result whether intended or not?

      Yes, a nicely sublime phrasing. Still, lets not lose sight of the CAPS:


      Just look.
