    And here's another equally informative and infuriating article in the same vein:

    The Quiet Coup

    I take it from the lack of responses that most DP readers who find this thread are not reading the articles. I can't imagine people are reading them and not wanting to vent in some manner.

    Shocking article... Especially the date --> (May 2009) :p

    And here is the most damning line in the article...

    The US government is doing just that... straight from the Kremlin text-book on how to bankrupt your nation...

    Ron Paul got an opportunity to explain the situation on TV (and did a fairly good job of elucidating the point clearly):

    Following the Rolling Stone article (in OP), the government suspended the head of the Office of Thrift Supervision:
    OTS Acting Director Polakoff Put On Leave

    ~~~

    Here's a pretty clear explanation on how the government is bailing out the banks:

    If you are mad about what's happening, I'd urge you to contact your Congressional Representative and tell them to support HR 1207 (The Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009):
