Bill Black: Why and how Holder let all the big bank CEOs off the hook (Video)

“Responsibility remains so diffuse, and top executives so insulated that any misconduct could again be considered more a symptom of the institution’s culture than a result of the willful actions of any single individual.” -Eric Holder on why he “could not” prosecute anyone in the top echelons of the big banks.

He also (like me) has evolved on the subject of Net neutrality. I think many people have recently as they’ve learned more about what “Net neutrality” actually is.

We said Obamacare was a crony capitalist jack for the insurance companies, Now even the New York Times agrees with us

It’s about time, but it’s too late now. I guess there is some comfort in knowing that the even the statist Gray Lady sees what Obamcare actually is. Though I am going to guess that the New York Times editorial board isn’t going to come out for repeal even though the program was sold with out and out lies and is pouring billions in taxpayer dollars into the pockets of the health insurance companies.
