#OWS Cheers As Defiant Judge Stops Obama From Selling Immunity To Wall Street

I will rejoice before they replace this judge like the one which allowed OWS to camp at Liberty Plaza. Yet a new chapter in the White House/Eric Schneiderman/Wall Street saga

In an audacious move against Citigroup, the SEC, and the practice of “selling immunity”, a Federal Judge in a NY District Court abruptly put the brakes on a settlement agreement proposed between the Obama Administration and another giant Wall Street firm accused of betting against their own investors.

and I absolutely need to borrow the illustration

I think the judge is Captain America, while the other superhero who is tied down must be Scheiderman.

Now, go read it

The free ones actually do it by reporting

the students strike against tuition hikes albeit in their skewed way.

The mogul owned ones do it tabloid style, with identical headlines

They almost seem to be taunting us, don’t they?

88. President Obama could crap gold bricks, that crowd would just accuse him
