Asia Times magazine told us that the big international banks launder $500 billion a year in political bribes.
Do you think this causes problems for those of us who are trying to make a few reasonable requests to various and assorted politicians? Does this perhaps explain why politicians just don’t seem to listen to anyone who does not own a bank or some computer firm that spies on us 24 hours a day 7 days a week?
Do I seem a little bit angry to you?
Good. I have heard it said that anger can be successfully used to change things around us that just seem to be wrong.
There are many problems that need changing. $6 trillion spent on wars in the Mideast that nobody can explain or defend without resorting to bald face lies. We don’t want these open ended, never ending wars. Yet people in power are still sending more money and more troops. Just where did they get that power? Who gave it to them? I didn’t. Did you?
There are many other ways of stating our fundamental problem.
The United States government has a secret slush fund that had at least one trillion dollars stashed in it from its drug profits.
This slush fund is not subject to congressional oversight and inquiry. This slush fund organized all the infrastructure of all the international Drug Cartels. Wait a minute! You were told the War on Drugs was there to make you safe?
That must be so because a Banker or a newspaper owned by one told me it was true. Aren’t I safe because a man in America got 20 years for stealing chocolate chip cookies?
That will teach him. Next time -meaning after 2036 in this case- he will make sure there is no chocolate in that cookie before he takes a bite out of it.
97% of the paint made in America is made by prison labor which is very cheap for the Uber Rich to hire. The prisoners are expensive for the taxpayers to support. How are those subsidies for the Prison Industrial Complex working out for you?
Our Teleprompter Reader in Chief said, ‘if you can’t trust us, we’re going to have some problems.’
Wow! Just wow! Is he serious?
Seymour Hersh told us Hillary and Obama gave sarin gas the Jihadists they sent to invade Syria. We gave them banned weapons. We armed and funded war criminals to invade a country we falsely accused of doing what we did.
How many violations of the Geneva Convention is that?
The Goldman Sachs’ Teleprompter Reader told us the economy was great and we were quoting fiction writers.
Tell me again what the unemployment rate is. Is it 5% or is it 23% or is it even higher?
Is the stock market up because we are all millionaires or is it up because the Federal Reserve is loaning out cheap money to bid stock shares up to new all time highs to trigger million dollar bonuses?
That is fair. CEOs need an incentive program to match that one over at the Veterans Affairs Department. VA managers are paid the Big Bucks to kill patients. Shred ten or twenty thousand medical records. Get another bonus.
That also is fair. Why? If veterans live long enough to collect their pensions, we won’t be able to afford the next war.
(I admit you might have to think about that non sequitur for a minute.)
How about this: The Banks are Too Big to Jail.
All of the Big Banks paid $100,000 a month each to the Attorney General’s law firm. The Bankers were given passes from all crimes committed. That is fair because all those petty crooks have to learn their lessons. Don’t be a penny ante crook. Rob the American people of billions of dollars and do No Jail Time. Jails are for unclean people who never will have enough money to pay the taxes Washington said they owe. Jails are not for people who have Lobbyists and congressmen on the payroll.
If a Banker robs us of trillions of dollars, he can pay the billionaire’s equivalent of a parking meter fine and walk out of court without a nasty word uttered by the federal government.
Perhaps I should really name the problem. We have no government because they do not represent us.
If we would just listen to the economists owned by Lobbyists, we would know that war will solve all of our woes.
Those pesky Russians spend $52 billion a year on defense. The Russians are committing a sacrilege to the gods of war. America spends almost a trillion dollars a year. That is befitting of our democratic ways. If we waste enough money, everyone has a chance to get one dollar. It can’t be true that billionaires are doubling their wealth.
Don’t you understand that all of Washington’s problems were created by people like you who just weren’t willing to believe what you were told?
We could let a former CEO of Kissinger Associates state our problem: The world is run by 30 Families and their 6,000 Minions.
You must have less so Bankers can have more.
That must be fair because some were born to deceive and others were born to be deceived. Or was that fleeced? Or was that born to die in some insane war before we could express an opinion?
Wait a minute. You remember being born in a country with a democratic form of government. You read about One Man One Vote. But was that real or was that a dream?
All I have ever seen in the modern world is:
One Bank One Vote.
Own a bank go the the head of the line. All others can go to Debtor’s Prison as soon as the Dollar Dies if they have not done so already.
That is fair because they own a Bank and you do not.
They were born to rule. You were born to rebel.
No. Wait a minute. You can’t rebel and refuse to believe what you were told. Why the federal government might collapse. There might be dancing in the streets. There might be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth on Wall Street.
But if Wall Street did steal $40 trillion – or more – from us, haven’t the parasites reached the limit of what they can pilfer without killing us off?
Let me repeat what I have said before.
The Fundamental Fact of Your Existence as a modern man or woman is that the bankers of New York and London want to reduce you to Debt Slavery.
Accept that fact and move on to the solution.
That is their plan for you.
What is your plan for them?
