Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Your Morning In WTF

As someone who has a mortgage with Wells Fargo, this story is... disturbing.

Of course, no one will ever be really held accountable for this.  It's not like they are Negros or Chicanos or some other dusky hued lowlife.

These are bankers who broke into a home, stole everything and fenced it.


But all Serious People agree that we have too much regulation of the banking industry and markets are always right.

I realize that Wells Fargo will write them a big check to cover the loss of, well, everything they own, family heirlooms, photo albums and the accrued memories of several lifetimes.

Because, and we can't say this enough... Capitalism!

(As always at Wonkette, skim the comments.)
