Many years ago the Federal Government took upon itself to create a safety net to help the truly needy. A primary criticism arose that too many of the needy were falling through the cracks of the netting.
After many improvements in the netting's mesh, the net was able to catch everything in its path, including those that did not need or want the 'help' and oversight of the federal government.
Unfortunately, criticism arose claiming that being trapped in the nets was cramping the style of favored individuals or groups.
So the Federal Government mandated the installation of Turtle Excluder Devices in its nets.
Now the new and improved nets trap all that it can find in its path and the favored groups can escape through the excluder devices.
Therefore, Solyndra, Fast and Furious, the Black Panthers, et al., are bailed out of the Federal Government safety net while all the regular shrimp remain trapped in the nets to be processed and sold to the highest bidder.
