Because the truth will always out, vengence really is His, and karma will eventually find you no matter where you hide, I think America is going to shake off this sickness which possesses our nation, and heal up. Those who try and return to the corrupt old ways will find this generation's version of tar and feathers awaiting them. You can push people just so far.
From Nicholas Von Hoffman in The Nation.
QUOTE People are furious, all kinds of people for all kinds of reasons, most of which are good and sufficient, if not always prudent and well thought out, but they've used, gamed, duped, lied to, betrayed, ripped off, conned, humiliated, scammed, cheated, plundered, rooked, screwed over, hosed, dissed and dishonored. Americans, left, right and center, have had it.
Some are angry over Guantánamo, Abu Ghraib, the countless deaths--our own and others--in Iraq, waterboarding, torture, eavesdropping, the suspension of habeas corpus and other acts classified as war crimes or crimes against humanity. Many cannot forget and certainly not forgive, as they demand that former President Bush, Dick Cheney--he of the lopsided, evil grimace--and their aides or accomplices should be tried for what they did.
Others are apoplectic about Bob Rubin, the ex-secretary of the treasury, ex-Goldman Sachs, ex-Citigroup guy and his confederates/collaborators. They want them put on trial, those men and women who, in the opinion of the infuriated millions, ruled and raped the financial system. It's easy to imagine vigilante committees forming to administer frontier justice to the bankers, brokers, hedge fund operators, real estate swindlers, derivative peddlers and bucket shop operators who have cost millions of people their homes, their hopes for a college education, their retirement and, most of all, their jobs.

p.s. Don't forget, America, when the "Mr. Potters" have you in a corner, to kneel in prayer. Then help is on the way.
