The United States is burying its future by printing money at outrageous speeds in order to stimulate our economy. Another segment of elected gerbils is saying we need to lower taxes, in particular to the wealthiest amongst us.
So one group says print money, hand it out to corporations so they can hire people in order to put some money into the pockets of the consumers. So, that will mean we will put even more money into the hands of the likes of Haliburton and KBR, who have already proved to over-charge us, produce soddy work, or even no work in Iraq so they can continue doing the same here in the US. On top of that there are no guarantees US citizens will be hired.
Then we have those who continue to advocate lowering taxes to the wealthiest in order to create jobs. I guess someone should pull their heads out of where they obviously are because they may not be aware of the millions of jobs we have LOST since they were given the tax cuts.
The solution to the situation actually flies in the face of the “new world order” elitists. The situation we are in now has been created by these fanatics for power and the movement gained momentum during the Reagan years – the “icon” as the Republicans will have you believe. That was the era of “voo doo economics” and the beginning of outsourcing and the concept of Wall Street being the benchmark for how our economy is doing. That was the major transformation over to the concept that our economy is good if, and only if, corporations are doing well. There was no concern over how individuals were doing in terms of their living conditions, only how corporations were doing mattered. Companies would fire thousands and their stock price would go up.
Then came Bush, Sr and Clinton and the emphasis we on “free trade”, a travesty for people. Even nations lost in these agreements. Those nations, such as the United States, who gained power under fair trade policies lost, economically, under free trade. Every country lost its sovereignty under the terms of free trade agreements. Corporations wrote the terms, monitored the terms, and mediated the terms under these agreements. I cannot think of a single country that has won a mediation against a corporation. With the corporation winning huge sums of money these countries then have to take out loans with the World Bank. Once in debt to the World Bank, guess who controls the country? So, the country now owes huge sums and guess who pays? The people have their taxes raised, in many cases they have been forced to work for less, if they are able to find work.
Then came the Bush/Cheney era to put the exclamation point on the already deteorating world situation. The New World Order needed a much lower standard of living in the United States in order for the Americans to be more accepting of this “world economy”, “globalization”, whatever name they give to it today, but the proper term is really “world take-over”. Bush/Cheney did several things early in its administration that were designed to hurt the average citizen. One can recall Cheney's Energy Task Force which was held in stealth mode. Even today one can only surmise what took place in those meetings, but things that became evident were the rape of Californians by Enron in the manipulated energy costs to those citizens and the state.
This was followed by the “Debtors Bill” which was passed and allowed the escalation of interest rates credit card companies were allowed to charge their customers. These rates rivaled those of the Loan Sharks who were arrested back in the 1920's, except now they were made legal (these are the same banks who have their hand out now and our government officials are giving them billions of newly printed dollars). This law alone added hundreds of dollars each month to the bills of the average US citizen.
In order to drain our treasury at more fantastic rates, along with giving reasons for more to come to the citizens, as well as further feeding the privatized Federal Reserve Bank, we had to go to war, as banks make huge sums during times of war (if we can come up with ways banks can make money during times of peace this would be a much better place to live). Hence, we illegally invaded, and occupied Afghanistan (that invasion was already on Bush's desk prior to 9/11. They were planning an October invasion). As they were maybe unable to figure out how they could spend fast enough in Afghanistan, they came up with no fewer than 27 lies to illegally invade and occupy Iraq. It was here they really began draining our treasury, and that continues as this is written. You might say Iraq is the US's gift that keeps giving to the Fed.
During this time energy costs escalated at historic levels, much like the energy costs did in California in the Spring of 2001, due to the manipulation of Enron. The gasoline prices were manipulated in much the same way in its meteoric rise. Doesn't it appear strange that with the financial institution bailouts the price of gasoline fell drastically – over $100/barrel!! This added a minimum of $100/month to the average citizen's budget.
Healthcare expenses have risen to levels that are obscene and more and more American citizens are being forced to drop their insurance in order to be able to feed themselves. Where are our elected officials? They are passing legislation that makes it illegal for them to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies for lower prices! To make this even worse is AARP, that organization most think is an advocate of the elderly, lobbied to pass that legislation. That would enable them to raise the price of their insurance programs and they are actually nothing more than an insurance company that requires membership in order to purchase their insurance.
At the same time we were losing thousands of jobs a month, food costs were going up, energy costs were skyrocketing, prices on consumer products were going up (even though we keep being told that by having them produced in China, or some other place, they are kept under control. That may be true is the $billions paid to executives in bonuses weren't allowed), credit expenses were at obscene levels, people were tapped out. The “consumers of the world” were tapped, broke. What did these great thinkers, the power elite, the New World Order manipulators, imagine would happen when nobody had money in order to purchase the goods (in some cases not so good) produced by people all over the world. The consumers of those products were unemployed and broke.
It seems if they want to stimulate the world economy the consumer has to be brought back. In order to do that jobs have to be created. In order to best do that we need to begin producing again. Creating jobs to repair our infrastructure is great. However, not very foresighted. Recreating jobs that produce consumer products will go on and on. In addition to putting people back to work and earning a livable wage by producing products here we are also building more security as a nation. Presently, when most of our consumer products are manufactured outside of the US our nation's security is at risk. If we produce it here we are becoming less dependent on outsiders. Some might say this is isolating our nation from the rest of the world. I say it is building security. Presently, what nations appear to be doing well? The one nation that comes to mind is China. Many of our production jobs are there, they have been financing the US's debt for several years, and their main problem now is with our jobs there we don't have the money to buy their products.
Nothing short of bringing production jobs back to our country will save the world economy. Kissinger, The Chicago Boys, and all the other elitists and economists be damned. They're advocating the world develop into a globe of third world countries.
