Too big to fail...or the real reason...MONEY.  I watched TYT last night and they had a piece on Aaron Swartz who killed himself.  The gov was going to put him away for 35 years (they said) for breaking "terms od contract" with some MIT computer educational papers he downloaded.  Seems like there has to be a lot more to the story for the gov to take such an interest in him but thats the point.  Look how they went after him yet the banks not only get off but get bailed out and make record profits in the process.  The rich in the world have a firm hand on the system.  The rest of us are nothing but puppets in the play.

Also a reason why they want religion to stay in place.  It controls the masses...hell, some even think suffering and being poor is a good thing.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.
