"In this episode, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert look at HSBC being fined rather than criminally charged in order to avoid destabilizing the system, . . ."

Matt Taibi (above): "proves the drug war is a joke". Absolutely, a criminal fraud designed to keep drug prices high -- that's why marijuana is illegal, bigtime criminals make too much money off of it. Of course, the evil, evil 1% dirtbags couldn't care less about lives blighted and ruined by criminal sanctions.

That video cracked me up. Max Keiser screaming in front of cocaine and monkeys, while Stacy Herbert carries on a level-headed analysis of the situation. Awesome.

This story is insane.

I don't want to hog the thread, but these two are amazing. If people want to add more, I hope they will.

The Young Turks have a good recap: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=maqSFuI7Uf4

And I saw a thread about it on FB. http://goo.gl/5TXDS

I'm looking for more, though.

Giving 10 billion dollars to Goldman Sachs didn't make any sense either.
