The bank should've knew something was about to go down when she walked into a bank on the cellphone and wearing sunglasses. Dead give away! She'll be caught within a week if she's from around here.

She blends in with about 50,000 other residents in the DC Metro area. Cell phone, sunglasses and flip=flops are standard wardrobe year-round.

Well, the financial industry and banks got a trillion dollar bailout which was drawn from all taxpayers, including her. She is merely going where "the getting is good." No harm was done, as a fiat monetary system means that the paper she stole is innately worthless. Her unemployment probably got turned off and selling food stamps simply is not enough to cover her cell phone bill which is an entitlement: no one should have to do without wireless service in 2010. I just hope malfeasant miscreants don't swarm the Capitol building!!! That is where the real money is, fat cats have fat pockets!!
