|Blagojevich's courtroom drawing during |
his public execution in the media 2008-present
-former Chicago city clerk Jim Laski, who was sentenced to two years in prison for corruption in 2006, talking about how any show of defiance from Rod Blagojevich could mean the tyrannic forces in control of the judicial system will assure a vengeful, lengthy prison sentence
In the chaotic days after the fall of the market in 2008, authorities controlling the collapse and forcing the bailout bill down the throats of Americans were also wary about any political "cowboys" in their midst. Failure to follow the scripted story line would mean certain disaster for an economy already on a precarious footing. Invoking the 10th Amendment or standing up for the people during that massive economic injustice could have spelled quick doom for the shell-shocked banks who were desperately trying to convince the people how much they need the banks to save them from "catastrophe."
