Now You Too Can Be Among the Powers That Be -- Thanks to 'iBailout!!'

Leave it to the good ol’ U.S. of A. to produce this sort of thing: An enterprising gaming company by the name of Hands-On Mobile has created an iPhone game that allows users to play the part of the money-gobbling Fed. In this digitized satire the Fed actually eats angry citizens. But fear not, for as the game gets harder the greedy Fed apparently has to reckon with mobs of ripped-off citizens, complete with pitchforks and torches. What’s the solution — martial law?

Or you could just remove your hands from your iPhone and put them to work writing angry letters to your local members of Congress and see if that produces any real-world results. Democracy is fun! –KA
