    Always the double standard.

    After a huge waste of taxpayer money this kid would have gotten off with a slap on the wrist. He was foolish to check out before the fight had begun and here the press is making him into a martyr because her didn’t have the stones to defend his beliefs.

    I knew Aaron because he e-mailed me with questions about some of my writings. After reading my book The Conservative Nanny State: How the Wealthy Use the Government to Stay Rich and Get Richer, he asked me why we hadn’t made it available in html. When I told him that no one on my staff had the time, he volunteered to do it himself.

    I’ll reluctantly grant the possibility that Aaron did something wrong, perhaps even criminal. But if U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz and her boss, Attorney General Eric Holder, think it’s right to hold a 35-year term and a million-dollar fine over someone’s head for sharing information, much of which was already free, while not doing a goddamn thing to prosecute the people who ordered torture and blew up the world’s economy through fraud on a world-historical scale, then they have no business being anywhere outside an insane asylum.

    @Ms. Ima

    Let’s see, bank officers not exercising fiduciary responsibility by deliberately making mortgages with balloon payments available to unqualified persons, knowing they would fail, and then bundling those mortgages together as AAA securities (with the false blessing of corrupt underwriters) and selling them off to other companies, and then taking insurance (bets) that they would fail.
    .
    Ima, you are blaming the victims. Again.
