SWAPS: CITI Corp orders Washington to approve new bail-out bill (authored by CITI.)

This from the Other 98% (the "peasants" or "little people")

ObamaCare: putting the 99% through hell just so Democrats can get campaign contributions from Health Insurers.

Keep it in perspective.

There would be no ObamaCare – or probably for that matter fracking - if it weren’t for the fact that money from Special Interest Groups ruled our politicians.

Big Oil: Asian Carp are now in the Great Lakes.

Thanks to big oil's demand to keep cheap and easy floating access to midwest refineries open, the great lakes is now infested with carp.
