    The rich powerful elites do not steal from the dollar store. They go after bigger rewards.

    However, The poor must resort to looting a Dollar store.

    The store’s management ( at the Dollar store) had initially asked police not to pursue charges, ( he has insurance) but after consulting with the DA, they have apparently changed their mind.

    Police warned that they will pursue any suspects identified via camera footage “to the fullest extent of the law”

    Excellent post, zerosum, contrasting the largest white-collar heist of all time with the petty thievery after Hurricane Florence, with the perpetrators of the former rewarded and honored, while the latter are prosecuted and reviled.

    Those who have not been fooled by the wall of propaganda surrounding the financial crisis, look forward to the day of justice, when the Hank Paulsons and Jamie Dimons are hunted down and stripped of their stolen wealth. The poor are only acting out what the bankers have so skillfully modeled for them – “steal as much as you can get away with.” Hark! The day of justice approaches.

    Beggin’ yer indulgence here, Amigos & Amigas, but somebody sent me this link a week ago, before 9/11, and I have been keeping it as an open tab. I have not sent it out on , because I cannot vouch for it, and it is of high importance, especially if mostly-true.
    The premise is that the facts about 9/11 are getting leaked by the Russians lately, and that retired-but-diverted-not-recycled W-54 nuclear artillery shell “pits” have a lot of useful applications, like vaporizing the central steel structural columns in the Twin Towers. I have seen evidence to that effect before, and the inductive heating of steel from nearfield nuclear event is just the right thing for that job. Microspherules of iron in the wreckage and vaporization of something like 20 tons of steel in the special antenna on top of the WTC (POOF!) add credence to that theory.
    What’s different here, is that specific actors and pathways of disbursement of these illegal battlefield nukes are alleged. I’m spelling it out to this commentariat, so you can choose to look at this link or not.
    Again, beggin’ yer pardon… John


    Great article and great commentary. I am trying to better understand the workings of central banks and this helps a lot. Always find it confusing when central bankers are described as incompetent-seems absolutely unlikely although maybe this appears to be the case because these bankers ultimately cannot control all that they would like to control. At the same time the central banks appear to have massive vested interests in areas not related to overall public good, and are very competently protecting these interests.
