Our Cup Runneth Over

The truth just keeps pouring out of WikiLeaks, as there are new claims that a major bank’s internal communications will be exposed soon. WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange said in an interview in 2009 that they had gigabytes worth of data from Bank of America, so BofA might be the next wizard to have the curtain pulled away by Toto.

I think it’s great, and I imagine that most of you think it’s a good thing, too. Had this been done by the government, I have a feeling there would be some complaints… but since the government hates WikiLeaks, they’re the good guys, right?

Privacy is so mysterious…


  1. I'd be more than happy if the government did this (not that it ever will, since it's completely in bed with the financial industry). I think the financial industry should be regulated into oblivion, though preferably by state or local governments since the feds shouldn't exist.

  2. not that it ever will, since it's completely in bed with the financial industry

    It can, it just hasn't. And the last time Obama tried to do anything to a private organization (BP), conservatives ran around screaming like their babies were on fire, bitching about how it's not his place to do anything, ever.

  3. Obama is the one who approved the drilling in the first place (the states living around the gulf would have been more reluctant since they suffer the consequences directly), and his dumbass administration is still approving drilling projects. Yes, conservatives are idiots but let's not pretend Obama is the good guy here.

  4. I'm not trying to imply Obama is anything. And actually, off-shore drilling support was (and still is) highest in coastal states because it "creates jobs." You know, like... sea gull scrubbers.
