- Someone hold a mirror up to Eric Holder, cont. - U.S. District Court Judge Jed Rakoff reminds us that we are up against the 5-year statute of limitations for the financial crisis, and he is outraged that no one has been indicted or prosecuted:
“To a federal judge, who takes an oath to apply the law equally to rich and to poor, this excuse — sometimes labeled the ‘too big to jail’ excuse — is disturbing, frankly, in what it says about the department’s apparent disregard for equality under the law,” he writes.
We still want to know if Eric Holder is breathing. (Raw Story)
- Yaketty-Yak - Magically delicious anger leprechaun Jeff Sessions is estimated by C-SPAN analysis to have logged 33 hours of speaking time, the most out of all his Senate colleagues. What did he talk about? Mostly money and of course against anything dealing with letting dusky-hued people into the country. Look away, Dixieland. (Livewire)
- Rich People Behaving Badly - The obnoxious founder of obnoxious Home Depot doesn't think that the Pope shows enough deference to Rich People (like himself) and to Capitalism in general, and then obliquely threatens to pull funds from the restoration of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York. And of course, he found a sympathetic ear in Cardinal "Kneecap" Dolan. (Think Progress)
