They are going after two minor banks—two minor foreign banks, which did not receive any American government largesse (i.e., taxpayer dollars) when the Too Big To Fail banks were bailed out in 2008—while letting the big fish swim away, untouched.
And the New York Times has the gall to say, “The banks are finally getting their due!”
See, this is why it’s becoming too depressing to blog. Like Capt. Willard said: The bullshit piles up so fast, you need wings to stay above it.
