By all means...

just read this one...


A Christmas Message From America's Rich - RollingStone (full atricle)

POSTED: December 22, 9:05 AM ET



"... What makes people furious is that they have stopped being citizens."

"Most of us 99-percenters couldn’t even let our dogs leave a dump on the sidewalk without feeling ashamed before our neighbors. It's called having a conscience: even though there are plenty of things most of us could get away with doing, we just don’t do them, because, well, we live here. Most of us wouldn’t take a million dollars to swindle the local school system, or put our next door neighbors out on the street with a robosigned foreclosure, or steal the life’s savings of some old pensioner down the block by selling him a bunch of worthless securities."

"But our Too-Big-To-Fail banks unhesitatingly take billions in bailout money and then turn right around and finance the export of jobs to new locations in China and India. They defraud the pension funds of state workers into buying billions of their crap mortgage assets. They take zero-interest loans from the state and then lend that same money back to us at interest. Or, like Chase, they bribe the politicians serving countries and states and cities and even school boards to take on crippling debt deals. ... ..."

Not much point in railing against the injustice.
You'll only tire out your vocal cords. Or typing fingers.
 
Calling attention to it all is an exercise in futility.
The powers-that-be aren't interested in helping everybody.
If that were their priority things would be very different.
 
The only way anyone can affect real change, or make an impact
is on the local level. People in a community can help their own neighbors...
providing food, shelter, and assistance in any number of ways.
 
No solutions will be found politically.
Our Senators and Congressmen have demonstrated they're less capable
of working together and reaching consensus than a class of third graders.
 
It's down to people helping the people in their own neighborhood... their own town.
 
People must begin to save themselves, and stop looking to government for solutions,
because government is not in the business of providing solutions.

Jeff... what You said above nails it...
"...People must begin to save themselves, and stop looking to government for solutions, because government is not in the business of providing solutions."

This is interesting... in 5 hours time on FB... quite a few "likes" and "shares" ...



from FB - TheOther98


When you think about it... to the corporate super rich at the top, there is no benefit (for them) to pay any tax whatsoever... they would rather use that same money to buy the government outcome(s) that do only benefit them.

Seriously... this "Lobby" crap needs to end.

Or how about a new rule...

You are allowed to spend up to 1% of the taxes that you paid for the year on "Lobby" influence.
~Geno


try that one on... let's see how it fits...!

ClapToo funny!  Look what this guy did to get even with the Banksters!

"...

Guy does to bank what banks usually do to other people

8/8/2013

The idea of beating the banks at their own game may seem like a rich joke, but Dmitry Agarkov, a 42-year-old Russian man, may have managed it. Unhappy with the terms of an unsolicited credit card offer he received from online bank Tinkoff Credit Systems, Agarkov scanned the document, wrote in his own terms and sent it through. The bank approved the contract without reading the amended fine print, unwittingly agreeing to a 0 percent interest rate, unlimited credit and no fees, as well as a stipulation that the bank pay steep fines for changing or canceling the contract...."




  ...Priceless!
Clap Clap Clap Clap Clap
