This is THE most important post/point about the banks right now. Cenk is right, and we are going to continue to be screwed by these banks and their executives. They have a vacuum hose on the treasury, and NO ONE is showing any signs of stopping them.

With two greedy, rapacious, huge industries (military and financial) sucking our treasury dry, it will be hard for the public to see any upside to paying taxes at all.

1. K & R, this one is a must watch, even though it's kind of a downer for a Friday.

But to cheer up after, you can watch the Best Of Cenk On TV.

3. It's beyond belief that this even has to be brought up. Should be a no-brainer.

4. exactly right--it's like the ritual browbeating of execs in public but letting them write...
their own rules in private.

Cenk could have taken this a step further--what did we expect from a corporate owned stooge like Geithner who actually HELPED Paulson write the first giveaway to banks?

8. it's as if Ted Bundy were on FBI serial killer task force: ''I'm shocked and offended that Dahmer...
ATE his victims. I am really disappointed in that kind of behavior. However, he will be joining our task force next week as my deputy.''

11. K&R Geitner is part of the problem, I have no confidence in him.
I was against bailing out the banks, period! I knew it was just theft.

16. Cenk wrote an article bashing the bailout shortly after it was first proposed.
I remember that half the comments at DailyKos ripped him to shreds. I wonder if those reactionary buffoons have since apologized or admitted their mistake, but I doubt it.
