Keith Oberman and Matt Taibbi. Not sure of the date but worth the 6+ minute watch and listen.
ll I see is self serving corruption, greed, stupidity, short sightedness and outright thievery by the parasites and leeches that would have us look upon them as our grand leaders and paragons of commerce.
Dear Fellow American...
I am writing this letter to you not as a liberal, not as a conservative; not as a lefty, not as a righty; not as a Democrat, not as a Republican, not as a Tea Party populist; not as a Christian, not as a Buddist, not as a Moslem, not as an atheist; not as a socialist, a communist and certainly not as a bailout capitalist.
I am writing to you as just another ordinary American.Read it all from Zero Hedge...click here Thanks reader for submitting this in your comment.
It was almost three years ago since I wrote a comment on how the pension Ponzi scheme dwarfs the Madoff scam. Watch the interview below and pay close attention to what Markopolos is saying. "Someone has to chase the bad guys" or else they will loot trillions in pensions.Interview with Harry Markopolis. Read the entire article from PensionPulse.com...click here
Again, thanks to a reader who provided this link in their comment.
Folks, we have a problem!
While the initial effort of this blog was to expose Goldman Sachs - which I believe we have done a fairly good job of - Goldman Sachs as it turns out is just a part of the problem. Granted, it may be a large part of the problem but the problem itself has taken on its own life.
For all the venomous acts of Goldman Sachs - their current and past leaders along with all of those revolving in and out of governments - our government itself has engaged in activity illegal, unethical and most of all UN American. Gov. Perry of Texas called some of the actions of Fed Chairman Bernanke treasonous which solicited many unkind comments about his own character. While I will openly admit I am not a fan of Gov. Perry, his statement was not far from the truth. Many actions by many members of our "elite" class - political and private - seem to be treasonous. Many actions of the Bush Administration and many in the Obama Administration can be considered treasonous.
To harsh a word you might say? Well, let's take a look at Miriam Webster's definition of Treason.
Definition of TREASON...click here for link to Webster's definition...1: the betrayal of a trust : treachery2: the offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance or to kill or personally injure the sovereign or the sovereign's family
If treason is the "betrayal of trust" then certainly many of our politicians exhibit this trait. If "attempting b overt acts to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance is treason then again, many of our political leaders and banksters fall into this category.
By attempting to control us all, by attempting to transfer all the wealth to a select few and by attempting to cover up their attempts (crimes), I would say that these offenders are not exhibiting the "allegiance" to OUR country they politically are sworn to do or for those in business are morally obligated to do.
If synonyms for treason are "backstabbing", "disloyalty", "double cross", "falseness", "sellout", "treashery" and "betrayal", then certainly many in government - past and present - and those in business with companies like Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan/Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo - to name just a few - certainly fit the categories.
We must just look around to see how these acts adversely affect all of us. How we, the middle class are being eliminated, our wealth transferred to those in the new elite upper class. How those in the lower class - growing daily - are being enslaved, starved and made homeless. Servants in waiting for those that have.
We are witnessing the destruction of our Constitutional Republic along with a world wide defined effort to control all of the civilized world - A New World Order - as decried by President, King George Bush the "First".
Wake up America. We can no longer stand idly by and watch this happen. No, I do not advocate violence in revolt of what is happening but I do advocate revolt by the use of our voting rights and not voting any incumbent back into office. We need a new slate in our government = people who love this country and are willing to defend their oaths of office to defend our Constitution and the rights of all that we are entitled to.
Let's make Congress a part time job. limit terms to 4 years. Limit the Presidency to one 6 year term and eliminate the need to spend more time on re election then on governing as representatives of the people.
Folks, we truly need CHANGE.
Together we can make a difference!
