We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
For those following that thing that makes small potatoes of such well-planned conspiracies as IPCC/Climategate, the Porkulus Bill, DeathCare, and so forth, here’s a very portentous and evocative weekend interview with Hank Greenberg.
Also, here is the part one (the part that throws so much light in conjunction with the Greenberg piece) of the Matt Tiabbi trilogy –the installment that, read (or re-read) side by-side with the Greenberg interview –while bearing in mind the very recent revelations of emails proving Timothy Geithner’s vampire stalking and zombization of AIG (the only ‘bust out’ vehicle that could do what they wanted done, and for control of which they had sent ''trumped up charge" Elliot Spitzer in 2005) from behind his president’s desk at the New York Fed –adds so very much indeed to the slowly revealing picture of the set up of the crash of 2008.
Some of us will simply never ever get over the sheer unmitigated gall, the cosmic effrontery, of this NWO cabal stripping so many ordinary joes of their lifetime savings, as if they were no more than sacrificed pawns. I guess when Soros did it to the British workers’ Pound Sterling savings and got away with it clean, the only surprise left in the crackerjax box would have been had not the cabal done the same thing again a magnitude larger in SE Asia 1998 and then again ten magnitudes larger with the trilogy grand finale in New York with the Dollar and America, with the blowoff in 2008.
I recommend you save these two URLs as a matched pair of pistols – whenever you note someone groping toward understanding what was done and how, you’ll have these two links to get 'em started.
I fail to understand why heads haven't rolled and criminal charges placed on these buffoons WHO are now being recycled through the system to do their dirty deeds AGAIN. And don't think this isn't going to happen again as these "experts-who-are-too-smart-to-can" are, as we blog, setting up another fall. They make money off The Deal; that's all they care about: shifting money around and taking their piece of the pie -- no real product, no value-added, no inroads into making the world a better place -- just a piece of the pie for stirring up the pot. Boom. Bust. They don't care. They make their percentage off moving the asset. Fire 'em.
AND...not one regulation has gone into place to correct the failures long ago identified. Not one. So while we're firing the financiers, fire the pols that have failed in their duties as well. Democrat. Republican. They're all beginning to look the same.
Or are we just patsies? If so, we deserve all the fallout for sitting on our tails while whining.
