Musk oxen do, but you won’t find those in Yellowstone.

Due to the colluding political-economic structure of our society, the effective financial regulations are non-existent and we are left with more of the same Too Big To Fail and Too Powerful To Regulate institutions. We will not rest until justice is brought against the criminals and our political system is in the hands of the people.

And isn’t calling this a “feud” a little hyperbolic, even for you?

Everything they brought attention to has been regularly in the media! They should bring attention to that which our media fails to offer public recognition to, then they’ll serve useful purpose.

But wait, these idiots are so clueless we’re probably going to get that chance really soon. I say the next time it comes up we nationalize the banks and fund their bailouts with the frozen assets of all those crooked CEOs and influence peddlers we call lobbyists, that is assuming we can track down all the off shore bank accounts where they’ve hidden their loot. Its not anti-capitalist to throw rich people in jail for financial fraud.
