Two of the best were James Cagney and Edward G. Robinson, who emanated such evil when acting like gangsters, they were very believable.
But today, we have real gangsters running around, dressed in populists clothing and oozing slick sentiment to the public, while selling their noxious horseshit. Like the gangsters in Congress and the WH that shoved the economy wrecking TPP down our throats despite an overwhelming majority of Americans being against a deal that was written in secret and kept hidden from the public until it was passed. Even now, the details of the TPP are to be kept hidden for another four years, but it won't take that long before the Constitution destroying TPP starts stealing our wealth and freedoms, or at least what's left.
“TPP and [the TransAtlantic Trade and Investment Pact – TTIP] are about getting special deals for businesses that they would have difficulty getting through the normal political process. For example, oil and gas companies that think they should be able to drill everywhere may be able to get rules that prevent national or state governments from restricting their activities. This could mean, for example, that New York State would have to compensate potential frackers for the ban that Governor Cuomo imposed last week…Similarly, the financial industry will be looking to roll back the sort of regulations put in place through Dodd-Frank and similar legislation in other countries. Again, if governments want to ensure that their financial system is safe, they may have to pay the banks for the privilege….The pharmaceutical industry and entertainment industries will get longer and stronger patent and copyright protection. And the food and pesticide industries will be able to able to limit the ability of governments to impose safety and environmental regulations.”Source
Another way Americans get taken by gangsters is how the parasitic Apartheid nightmare Israel is always getting more of our money and advanced weaponry, while We the People get told there's no money to fix our highways or relieve our crowded schools or upgrade our electrical grid, which is approaching the rolling 'brown-out' phase or to take proper care of our vets, horribly wounded and maimed, fighting endless 'Wars for Wall Street and Israel.'
