    • Donald Just Gave An Economic Speech In Front Of A Pile Of Garbage

We’re paying and will continue to pay heavily for that silence.

    Milgram, S. (1963). Behavioral study of obedience. Journal of Abnormal and Social Psychology, 67, 371–378.

    Time for a new line of research into the obedience of the Senate Banking Committee members to Jamie Dimon’s agenda (don’t hold me accountable), though the self-serving cause is readily apparent. The question might be: how can they have no shame during a televised hearing?

    • Because they are doggies begging for a treat. Because they are auditioning for multi-million dollar payouts in the financialist predasite sector after they leave office.
