Who has been “brought to justice” out of this attack on the world’s economic system projected to push approximately 46 million people into poverty? We are all being played for suckers. America is hiding behind a legacy of thinly veiled platitudes decrying the moral superiority of the USA. Fewer and fewer people are buying this propaganda and more and more are seeing what is really happening. America has no interest in Democracy except as vehicle to deliver corporate tyranny.
The increasing concentration of wealth has a history of dire, freedom killing consequences and only by wrapping it in the American flag can these economic terrorists peddle this poison around the globe. Barack Obama, the whole of the electoral, and campaign systems in America are owned and operated by those who control 80% of the nations wealth and intend to expand their psychotic gluttony more and more with every natural and man made disaster as well as the utter monopolizing of the information channels around the world.
Republicans aren’t going to heed our complaints, they’re not going to see the light and change their ways under the onslaught of our tireless heckling. They play to win. I recommended we do the same… and better!
Barack Obama was hired to “Change” the path America was on yet immediately after entering his new position he surrounded himself with criminals and perpetrators! This “Orator de Oro” weaves tear jerking speeches with aplomb but deliverers excuses and watered down consolation prize results while blaming everyone and everything but himself and the corrupt criminal system he obviously works for. Nothing will change, nothing can change, until a critical mass of Americans snap out of this stupor that allows for Democratic party failure and collusion to be hidden by the constant blaming of the Republican party no mater whether a minority or majority!
Only when we clean our own house and hold our own accountable will we have the moral and ethical right to blame others. As long as we deliver excuses, half measures, and distractions we can not say that we have done what is our duty. I hate to bear bad news but… Republicans aren’t going to heed our complaints, they’re not going to see the light and change their ways under the onslaught of our tireless heckling. They play to win. I recommended we do the same… and better!
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Now, there were those—there were those who argued that our recovery plan was unwise and unnecessary. They opposed the very notion that government has a role in ending the cycle of job loss at the heart of this recession. There are those who believe that all we can do is repeat the very same policies that led us here in the first place. But I also know that this country has never responded to a crisis by sitting on the sidelines and hoping for the best.
AMY GOODMAN: President Obama. Your response, Ha-Joon Chang?
HA-JOON CHANG: Right. Well, no, I mean, I agree with this sentiment, but the people he put in charge of the economy, like Paul Volcker and Larry Summers, I mean, these are people who actually created this problem. You know, Volcker is, if you like, the godfather of monetarism in this country. And Larry Summers, when he was at the World Bank as the chief economist and then when he was at the Treasury later, I mean, was going around the world preaching to other countries that they have to deregulate their financial market, open up their borders to the American and other rich country financial flows. Now, what they are doing now isn’t what they were doing before, but if they have started believing in something else, they should come clean and apologize, don’t you think? I mean, because these are the people, with others, who created these problems.
