A Real Estate depression in which the Federal Reserve fully reimburses member banks for their losses at public expense and a federal government which withholds any assistance for individual homeowners.
Consider that a home is the one and only asset the average American family will ever own. The destruction of ten million private homes pushes those families down to non-owning peasant status. With the end of government mortgage assistance the banking cartels shall now dictate who and when and how you will purchase property in this society.
Falling wages for all but the top twenty percent of wage earners and for almost all other Americans a decade of zero wage growth.
The corporate media pick and choose to pull corn kernels from the manure pile. They ignore stolen elections or any objective criticism of corporate fascism in America instead creating a fantasy world of illusions. Drunken starlets, unreality shows and tea baggers, Sarah Palin or sports. Creating new stories from whole cloth, Dearborn --A controversial Florida pastor and his associate were released from jail tonight after being held briefly for refusing to pay a $1 "peace bond" after a jury ruled they would "likely breach the peace" with plans to protest a mosque.
Can a pastor be a pastor without a flock? Terry Jones had said recently that only he and the associate pastor remained as members in his "church." That would make him an unemployed pastor who has the money to travel and to foment new breaches of the peace. After a meeting with a local Imam on Friday the hand gun which Jones carries discharged accidentally. Sure it did, but how does a Florida pastor carry a concealed handgun on a Michigan street? No charges were filed, no of course not, why would they be?
In this case Jones had gone to Dearborn Michigan to protest in front of a Mosque. To protest in front of people who had said or done nothing to this "Christian" pastor. It is very similar to the actions Neo-Nazis who had once wanted to march through Skokie Illinois where many holocaust survivors resided. The purpose was only to offend and to defame and then to claim victim hood while committing an assault in a media circus environment.
A Christian faith which has adopted the tactics of Neo-Nazis? As Jones is not alone, Westboro Baptist Church has funding to travel far and wide to offend and Franklin Graham says, maybe this Donald Trump is onto something with his birther falderal. Even the preacher down the road from you is praising the sacrifice of the troops in Iraq protecting our freedom yet the gospel of Jesus Christ never said anything like that and the troops in Iraq aren't defending anything except the wealth of the oligarchy.
Simply pawns in the game displayed for your amusement, a comfortable illusion of good guys and bad guys, cowboys and Indians. A two party political system where both parties wish to achieve the same goals through different routes. A one party state with right and center wings ever cascading towards the reactionary night.
Suddenly the enemies of this society have gone from being Communists, terrorists and Muslims to autoworkers, public school teachers and state employees. Their pensions and benefits are seen as an affront to a public which once had pensions and benefits of their own. Billionaire TV celebrities versus wicked public school workers.
"But when cities or countries are accustomed to live under a prince, and his family is exterminated, they, being on the one hand accustomed to obey and on the other hand not having the old prince, cannot agree in making one from amongst themselves, and they do not know how to govern themselves. For this reason they are very slow to take up arms, and a prince can gain them to himself and secure them much more easily." Niccolo Machiavelli
Establishing a government where failure for you is success for the oligarchy, where financial distress for labor means financial excess for Capital. A government where the people are regulated and corporations are not. Where corporations are treated as persons while actual persons, citizens no less, have little standing. A government where religion is propaganda tool of media. The median home price fell 5.9 percent year over year and nearly fifty percent of all home sales were distressed sales as home prices fell for a third straight year. Stock prices on the Dow Jones rose over twelve hundred points as Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs cashed in an $18 million bonus check.
War is Peace -- Freedom is Slavery -- Ignorance is Strength and Failure is Success
