What's The Difference Between Organized Crime And Conservatism?

"Organized crime, organised crime, and often criminal organizations are terms which categorise transnational, national, or local groupings of highly centralized enterprises run by criminals, who intend to engage in illegal activity, most commonly for monetary profit." Organized crime - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Here's one of the Cons biggest benefactors showing us how to rape their own people...

"Oil and Gas Companies Are Rigging Wages and Cheating Their Workers."

"A ProPublica review of U.S. Department of Labor investigations shows that oil and gas workers – men and women often performing high-risk jobs – are routinely being underpaid, and the companies hiring them often are using accounting techniques to deny workers benefits such as medical leave or unemployment insurance.

"The DOL investigations have centered on what is known as worker 'misclassification,' an accounting gambit whereby companies treat full time employees as independent contractors paid hourly wages, and then fail to make good on their obligations. The technique, investigators and experts say, has become ever more common as small companies seek to gain contracts in an intensely competitive market by holding labor costs down..."

One of the Conservative capos don't WANT no law in his town...

"Ted Cruz Is Already Vowing To Obstruct Obama’s Unnamed Attorney General Nominee."

"President Obama has nominated anyone to be the new Attorney General yet, but Ted Cruz is already signaling that he will lead the fight to obstruct the new nominee.

"In a statement, Cruz said, "To this day, no one has been yet held accountable for the IRS scandal, and it is incumbent upon the next Attorney General to uphold the law without regard to partisan ideology...'"

Gangsters and banksters, the Conservative syndicate has 'em all...

"Job one for a Republican Senate: Screwing the consumer on behalf of the banksters."

"Elizabeth Warren scares the crap out of a lot of people, most of them on Wall Street or in the Republican Party (not that those things are mutually exclusive). So what else would they make a top priority if they retake the Senate besides trying to kill her brainchild, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau..."

It looks like the Cons are recruiting their top guns out of the pen...

"Raging GOP Candidate Mike Bost's Past Includes Dog Killing And Mysterious Stolen Gun."

"WASHINGTON -- Illinois state Rep. Mike Bost (R-Murphysboro) has made a name for himself throwing extraordinary tantrums during legislative sessions. But he doesn't appear to have contained his notorious temper to the statehouse, according to a review of court and police records obtained by The Huffington Post.

"Bost, who is running for Congress this fall under the slogan 'Passionate Leadership for Southern Illinois,' has a lengthy history with local authorities, including some incidents that suggest 'passionate' is a bit of an understatement.

"The earliest episode dates back to 1986, when a neighborhood beagle named Rusty bit Bost's 4-year-old daughter. The report filed by animal control officials indicates that the girl provoked the attack by chasing the dog. She ultimately had to get 19 stitches on her face.

"According to court records, Bost was displeased that authorities would not be able to deal with the 10-year-old dog immediately. So he got his handgun, drove to Rusty's owner's home, and shot the dog to death while it was penned in an enclosure..."

But Bost isn't the only gangster in politics, he's just one of the newer ones in the ongoing battle of class warfare...

Can we equate the gangster specializing in political organized crime hide behind his lies?  And have we answered the question, "What's The Difference Between Organized Crime And Conservatism?"

Yes indeedy -- None, no difference at all.


Some may think the link between organized crime and Conservatives is a stretch until they analyze what the Cons really want.  Then it's just a matter of figuring out how to stop them.

From Wikipedia on the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act: "The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes which they ordered others to do or assisted them, closing a perceived loophole that allowed someone who told a man to, for example, murder, to be exempt from the trial because he did not actually commit the crime personally...

"Summary: Under RICO, a person who has committed 'at least two acts of racketeering activity' drawn from a list of 35 crimes—27 federal crimes and 8 state crimes—within a 10-year period, if such acts are related in one of four specified ways to an 'enterprise,' can be charged with racketeering. Those found guilty of racketeering can be fined up to $25,000 and sentenced to 20 years in prison per racketeering count. In addition, the racketeer must forfeit all ill-gotten gains and interest in any business gained through a pattern of 'racketeering activity.' RICO also permits a private individual harmed by the actions of such racketeers to file a civil suit; if successful, the individual can collect treble damages (damages in triple the amount of actual/compensatory damages)..."

And if RICO doesn't quite do the job, we can always clean house by criminalizing Conservatism.

people tempered by fear."
