This is less about reality, and more about perception I feel. Holder has the resources financially to prosecute anyone he sees fit to prosecute, as
other posters have pointed out. Holder FEARS the effect of any potential prosecution, probably is under some serious pressure from private interests,
and of course politicians who have links to various businesses under investigation, or suspicion.
Those people, those with ties to these businesses, and other figures in government, probably fear the effect on the stability of the USA of loosing
its economic stability, a fate they believe is unavoidable if the prosecutions go ahead. However, the USA has, as do most economically developed
nations, two economies of note (excluding black market and other criminal infrastructures). There is the economy which appears on the stock market,
and there is the real economy, which operates on a much smaller level, in a more distributed manner, throughout the entire United States. I am of
course refering to small businesses and family enterprises.
These businesses, although they can be seriously effected by the action of the power markets due to banks suddenly foreclosing on property loans and
so on and so forth, are actually much more solid, because they corner markets in small towns, of which there are a great many in the States. Many of
these businesses are very diverse, general stores and so on, selling all manner of grocery items, hardwares and the like. These have been under great
strain from out of town shopping centres of course, and that is a concern.
However, in reality people will still need feeding, and when and if a collapse or a market backlash hits the US, there will be people within these
small communities who will be able to provide for the needs of those communities. Where the bigger cities are involved, in such a time those cities
will become little block provinces, with trade between them becoming more vibrant, as out of town supplies are cut off by prohibitive fuel costs. City
to city trade will decrease somewhat, with only essential supplies moving in and out, like foodstuffs, fuel, and the like.
Holders fear is pathetic and shows a lack of confidence in the people on whose behalf he adminsters the law. This makes him weak. The banks know
this, which means they will not change thier ways, since they are so profitable and since they know they will not be prosecuted. This is not mere
hegemony, but a racket the likes of which the mighty Al Capone could only have concieved of in his most deluded, and drunken moments of excess. There
is however, no Ness like figure on the horizon as we speak, to take the names and apply the boot to the rump of this particular monster, and until
there is, expect the USA to be held to ransom.
This is economic terrorism at its most vile and effective. A vast superpower, held in a crushing grip, not by an army, nor by a conqueror, but by
fear and money.
Holder should be deposed, dethroned, and replaced with someone who is prepared to apply the law vigorously and without remorse, relent, or regret, to
any and all who violate it, no matter the vast power and wealth they wield over the land. I recognise this because similar things have happened here
in the UK over the years. The lack of will in the legal establishment to take certain companies and banks to task for thier idiocy and criminality has
cost my nation dear over the last few decades, and I would hate to see the vice of finance come down so heavily on our neighbors across the sea.
Stand fast with the Holy Ghost, as my mother often says. March upon your state capitals, make signs, make noise, demand the justice you all so
rightly deserve. With a bang not a whimper friends.
