THE PERMANENT CRIMINAL STATE

I've said it before, and I will say it again: Obama's plan to use the bankers who sold us out for their derivative dreams to repair the damage they did is a joke. No, not a FUNNY joke, but a joke on working people everywhere around this garden planet. His attempt to "make it right" or "repair the damage" is to make it like it was and always has been: BANKERS RUN THE PLACE. THAT MY FRIENDS IS NOT CHANGE, IT IS SIMPLY MORE OF THE SAME IN A NICE SHINY COAT OF PAINT, and it is a sad thing.

While Motor City looks more and more like the 9th ward in New Orleans after Katrina, bank "stress tests" are nothing more than a sham to cover up the greatest theft of jobs/income/homes/money in the history of America.

Arianna Huffington has some words about it here.

So far, Mister President Obama has not shown a lot of balls or forward/progressive thinking or action. He talks a good talk, but at nut-cutting time, his knife aint so sharp.

No comments:

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
