Editorial Comment by Larry Rubinoff
Bonuses, bonuses and more stories about bonuses. Is everyone missing the point here? Why is this story still so prevalent in our media and even in our independent blogs? Where are all the investigative reporters or are they all being tempered by these "TBTF" companies who allow them to write about their bonuses which has little effect on their actions to continue to pay them out?
As I post these news links I look for evidence of reporting on the criminal activity, corruption and government complicity. Yet, I see very little of this. Yes, there is the story of the shareholder suit and the story of the Teamsters Union and its boss, Hoffa, fighting Goldman Sachs. There is a little bit of reporting on Andrew Cuomo, the New York State Attorney General digging into Goldman's affairs but this issue is much larger then what is being reported.
People of America, there is a major political transformation occurring here and I don't mean the election of Barack Obama as our President. The change, as I have written in the past is the corporate takeover of our country. Democrats and Republicans alike are complicit in this "silent revolution". Our executive branch by virtue of various members of the cabinet and advisors to the President indicate complicity and conspiracy. Where is the real outrage by the American people? We seem to just sit back and allow this revolution to go unchallanged.
We know that there is a very definitive effort - a successful effort - to transfer the majority of the people's wealth to a handful of "elite". When it is all said and done we, the people, will have nothing left and I am not speaking about money. We are losing - giving up = our freedoms and rights granted us under our Constitution. We are giving up - without a fight - the opportunities this country has offered. We are giving up our children's futureI challenge our media to come to the forefront of this revolution, it is in their best interest. While these large companies may spend a lot of money on advertising it is still the people who must purchase their goods and services. If there is no wealth left amongst the majority then all the advertising in the world cannot create spending. So WAKE UP MEDIA, expose the truth - it is your obligation to do so.
