John, your morning trilogy makes yesterday''s Goldman Sachs pleadings that China's imagined economic reforms to free markets would be internationally fatal even more self-protectingly ludicrous. (Is that a Caymen-bound helicopter I hear?)
JLo may be hiding out, but living large will bite him. Ask imprisoned Mexican drug lords.

The biggest scandal in world history obviously has to be related to
the financial crisis of the mid-2000s, but it's not recognized as a
scandal, because the Justice Dept. refused to pursue criminal charges
against the bankers who had perpetrated the crimes.

By contrast, President Bush #1 and President Clinton reacted to the
Savings and Loan crisis by prosecuting thousands of bankers.
President Bush #2 reacted to the Enron scandal by prosecuting several
top managers. But President Obama has prosecuted nobody.

Instead of prosecuting the bankers, Obama backed the banks in the form
of massive corruption -- by accepting billions of dollars in
contributions to his campaigns and to his cronies' projects in return
for not pursuing criminal charges against the criminals who brought
about the financial crisis through massive fraud, knowingly selling
trillions of dollars in fraudulent sub-prime backed synthetic
securities. The sainted Obama was the biggest beneficiary of this
criminal fraud. That would make Obama by far the most corrupt
politician in the country's history. But no one cares because he's a
Democrat, and every crime from corruption to racism to rape to
inciting violence is perfectly acceptable, and even encouraged, as
long as the criminal is a Democrat. That's because when a Democrat
does it, it's GOOD corruption and GOOD racism and GOOD rape and GOOD
violence.

This isn't about about political parties. It's about generations.
Speaking generally, Boomers are honest and Gen-Xers are crooks,
including Obama. Gen-Xers who aren't personally crooks are still part
of a culture of criminality and tolerate and encourage "politically
correct" criminality, because its GOOD criminality. It's very
interesting that even today, all or almost all of the indictments from
the special prosecuter have been Gen-Xers, because Gen-Xers are
crooks, while Trump himself has (so far) escaped this huge tidal wave
of vitriolic attacks of all kinds because he's a Boomer, hence honest.

I've been writing about "the destructiveness and self-destructiveness
of Generation-X" for years, and I'm certainly not going to stop now
because CH is around.

No, I was just wondering if you had also noticed the sorta-welcomed apparent absence of our most, uh, "verbal?" psychopath.
