Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson Leaked Sensitive Government Information To Wall Street Cronies

Courtesy of the Freedom of Information Act….   There are really only two possibilities here.  One, Paulson knew what he was doing and this is exactly the kind of massive corruption that defines the intermingling of corporations and government in American-style fascism or two, Hank Paulson is dumber than a box of rocks and wasn’t qualified to be our Treasury Secretary.   Neither possibility paints a very pretty picture of Washington.  But, hey, every Tom, Dick and Harry in the U.S. has known this for ages given the systemically horrendous approval ratings of politicians.

"Sometimes the law defends plunder and participates in it. Thus the beneficiaries are spared the shame and danger that their acts would otherwise involve. But how is this legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them and gives it to the other persons to whom it doesn't belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime." -- Frederic Bastiat
