Covering Up The Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Scam

Corruption is rampant, and hypocrisy abounds, and we are expected to pay for it, unfortunately.

Just watching this video makes me almost physically ill, and two of the people on here, make it especially so. Maybe, the old saying, "What you don't know, won't hurt you," applies when it comes to the present situation.

Unfortunately, I do know quite a bit about at least two of the speakers in the video: Barney Franks, and Maxine Waters.

Barney Frank (D., Mass.) who blamed the Republicans for causing yesterday's bailout bill to fail, benefited quite handsomely from Fannie Mae, not to mention that his former "spouse" just happened to be the CEO of Fannie Mae at one time.

The other one, Maxine Waters (D-Calif) was named as one of the "most corrupt" members of Congress two years in a row because of her abuse of power in order to benefit her family, financially.

She is, also, well-known for her defense of the people involved in the Los Angeles riots of 1992.

She said, in part: "If you call it a riot it sounds like it was just a bunch of crazy people who went out and did bad things for no reason. I maintain it was somewhat understandable, if not acceptable. So I call it a rebellion."

She also said it was "a spontaneous reaction to a lot of injustice" and "The anger in my district is righteous. I'm just as angry as they are."

Well, Ms. Waters, there are a lot of angry people right now, who are pretty tired of the injustices foisted on them by greedy companies and crooked organizations which have been aided and abetted by corrupt politicians.

Rebellion could be in the backs of their minds, for sure...I wonder how "righteous" you would consider that to be.
