    "Bad, evil" banks vs. "good, caring" Government.

    The snakes want their money. People should know that people on the Jefferson County side went to jail over this deal..JP Morgan Chase was fined $80 million over it, but not a single person employee of the bank faced criminal charges...

     

    The political-banker class have corrupted this country...It's sickening.
