Easier to Cheat

"Somebody buying US Treasuries just after the downgrade stands to make a huge, quick and nearly risk free return on investment. Who is paying attention?"

"Would this be easier using automated high-frequency trading?"

"Good question, we'll look into it."

After awhile when somebody says, "Oops." the red flag goes up immediately. What a couple of trillion amongst friends? Maybe the DOJ ought to find out. Is it true they have access to payed fines in corporate settlements?  Seems like a no-brainer, frankly.

"Did you see that billboard? It said something like, "I don't want to talk about politics. My side is losing."

Koch Industries, Wichita Kansas
The deception machine is losing its effectiveness. Ironically, it was not the content that was discredited this time - instead it was the long laundering chain method of obscuring causal relationships.

The motives of the command and control (think: head of the snake), now resonating with a disgusted population. Gut feel, if you will. Put an authentic face to your adversary and then the real contest (and the fun) begins.
