Looters in New Orleans, after hurricane Katrina, were shot on sight. Looters on Wall Street were given a bailout.
Is that not the ultimate of double standards and irony? I mean come on, who needed the bailout more and who was really looting?
Anyway... here is a link to a video of a U.S. Congressman, speaking in congress, stating that members of congress were threatened with martial law if they didn't immediately pass the $850billion bailout plan.
