Lee Farkas Convicted In $3 Billion Mortgage Fraud Case: "ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- A jury has convicted the majority owner of what had been one of the nation's largest mortgage companies on all 14 counts in a $3 billion fraud trial that officials have said is one of the most significant prosecutions to arise from the nation's financial crisis."
And on it goes. Large institutions just screwing the middle class. The banksters, the mortgage companies, the oil companies, the insurance companies, the lawyers...and it seems that neither political party has much interest in doing anything about it. In the meantime, the public gets angrier by the day. The 2012 election outcome will favor whichever party is best able to channel this incoherent, unfocused rage. The Republicans will try to blame government and the Democrats will try to blame corporate America. The problem with that choice? Both parties are right.
