The above photo shows Los Angeles artist Alex Schaefer with his painting of a Chase Bank branch on fire. The L.A. Police, a notorious gang of thugs, have been harassing him for painting this. They have questioned him about being a terrorist. Over a painting?
"The flames symbolize bringing the system down," the artist was quoted as saying in the L.A. Times. "Some might say that the banks are the terrorists." He has a series of paintings he's currently creating, all showing different bank buildings burning.
With the Obama administration still bending over backwards to let the bankers get away with whatever they want to do, the future ain't too bright -- especially if Rick Perry actually turns out to be the alternative in 2012. (Click the green for link to Matt Taibbi's Rolling Stone article/blog.)
Yves smith, on Naked Capitalism, writes this:
"It is high time to describe the Obama Administration by its proper name: corrupt .. we have unemployment at roughly 16% if you include discouraged workers, and many “employed” workers are underemployed. The housing market hasn’t bottomed; experts have pushed their hopes estimates from 2011 to 2012. And continued concerns about unaddressed chain of title issues may well impede any housing recovery. Yet rather than address real, serious problems, senior administration officials are instead devoting time and effort to orchestrating a faux grass roots campaign to con a state AG into thinking his supporters are deserting him because he has dared challenge the supremacy of the banks."
Here's Robert Scheer on the Obama's administration working hard to make sure the banksters get away with their endless crimes.
How much did the banksters get away with? $1.2 trillion that we know about, according to Bloomberg News. And how's the economy doing? Great, if you're a bankster.
Well, let me chime in again and hope the police don't come knocking.
