    Greed and stupidity he got that right. Some more that caught my attention.

    They cemented and formalized a political trend that has been snowballing for decades: the gradual takeover of the government by a small class of connected insiders, who used money to control elections, buy influence and systematically weaken financial regulations.

    I'll give Matt Taibbi more cred when he stops lying about 9/11 Truth and smearing those calling for an independent commission. ...

    A thread we discussed about him here:
    http://www.patsfans.com/new-england...971-9-11-conspiracy-theorists.html#post898147

    Until then, his writings are taken with skepticism.

    Considering money is power, and staying in the money is at the root of their goals, I'm baffled as to why he seems to be splitting hairs on this one.
