Something seems a little screwy here

Didn’t it used to be that some people without money would go into a bank with a gun and rob the bank? Now it seems that some banks without money are coming to the tax payers and robbing us. Heck, they don’t even need to bother to use a gun, all they need is a threat.

Kind of gives the term “bank robber” a whole new meaning, doesn’t it?

And what really gets me is that they don't even bother to wear a mask. They simply march their entitled and greedy-ass selves in and take take take, just like that.

It sucks.

They've been doing it for 30 years, BushCo only emboldened them.

There's the famous line from The Godfather: "You can steal more with a briefcase that you can with a gun."

Willie Sutton once said this in response to the question "Why do you rob banks?"

Because that's where the money is.

As inescapable a truism as I ever read regardless of who is the perpetrator.

I just wish when they DID do the robbing, they wore cool hats like they used to.

Just wait until the taxpayers take up robbing banks so they can go to jail where they can get food and shelter and medical care because those things are becoming more scarce on the outside.

What Lisa said.

I hate the hypocrisy of these people most of all. All those republican-voting, "big govt doesn't work!," anti-welfare bigot-assholes are now standing there with their manicured and uncalloused hands out to the government, and they're gettin' PAID. They're laughing their asses off, I'm sure.
