araquan offers this:
What Would Jesus Do? ... Wait, he'd do WHAT? But I thought... Oh shit. I guess we're fucked.

In our current situation, of course, the answer is:
Throw The Money-Changers Out Of The Temple.

I suppose a comment on how perverse it is what we consider a "temple" nowadays would not be out of order?

Generally, I confess, I have little patience for rosy-hued visions of the "Good Old Days". However... The 18th and 19th centuries were really the heyday for perceiving the abstracts of Liberty and Justice as benevolent goddesses, and the halls of government as temples of civic virtue. However failed that may have been in practice, I find the ideal far preferable to the modern perception of those ladies as commodities to be bought and sold.

So, yes, throw them out of the temples indeed, and rescue Lady Columbia from the streetcorner. Put paid to the quick-fisted procurer in his top hat and his fancy zoot suit, and the plutocrats and zealots to whom he panders!
