How easy it is to tout how well these new laws, that have done
great damage to the rights of people, when ‘fighting a ghost
war on terror’ where anybody on anyone’s shit list can be
‘detained’ as a terrorist.

But of course, there is that on exception which ‘pays’ and that
is to ignore the crimes that corporations, financial perverts
and the somehow complicit government(local,state,federal)
commit while looking after their masters.

Great detective work, Holmes.  Now why don’t you see about catching some of the criminals on Wall Street!

Too bad that money trails don’t seem to lead to American criminals often enough to stop corporate thievery via credit card usury and theft by foreclosure.
