"...the friendly face of the Amerikan Empire..."

The webroots realizes they've been had:

Still, the there's a lot unthinkable about what's going on to people, and you can pick it out in the way they frame it:

"...This is not some evil conspiracy of two guys sitting in a room saying we should let people create crony capitalism and steal with impunity,” said William K. Black, a professor of law at University of Missouri, Kansas City, and the federal government’s director of litigation during the savings and loan crisis. “But their policies have created an exceptional criminogenic environment. There were no criminal referrals from the regulators. No fraud working groups. No national task force. There has been no effective punishment of the elites here...”

No, it's not two guys sitting in a room, it's hundreds of thousands of guys and gals all across the nation who've figured out the best way to cash in on the Empire is to call themselves its elites, take the money, and rule.
