But now it is being reported that both NY and California have caved -- making a "deal" all but inevitable.
What do you think the banks held over these folks? Might it have been their state bond financings? Oh, probably. Property rights and a property registration system that literally pre-dates the Revolution?

Then we will tell our constituents that we "got the best deal possible" and that "we couldn't have prosecuted."
There is no law any more folks. Not when it really matters -- when systemic and rampant violations are committed by big business and your fundamental liberty interests are ignored.
So get out of your chair this evening, my friends, and go stand in front of the mirror to identify the problem. Then decide for yourself whether you're going to keep consenting, because up until now, you have and this crap will not stop until you decide you've had enough and insist that the law that applies to you is also applied equally to these institutions and their executives.
