Bank robbers in the news? Hah. They stole far less then the CEO's of Goldman, AIG, etc, but will probably spend at least 8 yrs in jail for a stealing FAR LESS money then that scumbag/religious zealot JoAnne Schneider will.

WHY did JoAnne's husband get a slap on the wrist and she get 3 years? They collectively stole 60 MILLION dollars! WHAT is wrong with our judicial system? Are they getting a cut for going easy on these two? A fitting punishment would be to give BOTH of these criminals a year in jail for each million they stole.

The Big Takeover
By MATT TAIBBI

The global economic crisis isn't about money - it's about power. How Wall Street insiders are using the bailout to stage a revolution

March 21, 2009 "Rolling Stone" -- It's over — we're officially, royally *ucked. no empire can survive being rendered a permanent laughingstock, which is what happened as of a few weeks ago, when the buffoons who have been running things in this country finally went one step too far. It happened when Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was forced to admit that he was once again going to have to stuff billions of taxpayer dollars into a dying insurance giant called AIG, itself a profound symbol of our national decline — a corporation that got rich insuring the concrete and steel of American industry in the country's heyday, only to destroy itself chasing phantom fortunes at the Wall Street card tables, like a dissolute nobleman gambling away the family estate in the waning days of the British Empire.

The latest bailout came as AIG admitted to having just posted the largest quarterly loss in American corporate history — some $61.7 billion. In the final three months of last year, the company lost more than $27 million every hour. That's $465,000 a minute, a yearly income for a median American household every six seconds, roughly $7,750 a second. And all this happened at the end of eight straight years that America devoted to frantically chasing the shadow of a terrorist threat to no avail, eight years spent stopping every citizen at every airport to search every purse, bag, crotch and briefcase for juice boxes and explosive tubes of toothpaste. Yet in the end, our government had no mechanism for searching the balance sheets of companies that held life-or-death power over our society and was unable to spot holes in the national economy the size of Libya (whose entire GDP last year was smaller than AIG's 2008 losses).

"Why would we keep CEOs and CFOs and other senior officers, that caused the problems? That's facially nuts. That's our current system."
