When are they going to stop playing games with these news stories, this attitude of "just this once" is prevalent in the current LIBOR scandals, the banks have been manipulating everything they do since their didn't start with the 2008's been going on with them for 300 years

The government didn't just decide to tap phones and follow its citizens, it's been doing that for the last 70 years as well!!

Hopefully everyone will wake up to their game soon (?)
