While momentarily on the subject of Fox cable (I refuse to call it news), that is owned by News Corp under Rupert Murdock, another very wealthy individual. The largest single voting shareholder outside of the Murdock family happens to be one of the wealthiest investors in Saudi Arabia. A Muslim Saudi Prince by the name of Alwaleed bin Talal who has also been linked to payments to families of Palestinian suicide bombers. This same man is also a major player in Citibank which recently accepted TARP bail out funds after the Bush recession and economic collapse brought on by a deregulated Wall Street.

Now we come to the members of Congress, Republicans in particular. It should come as no secret that the GOP is the party of big business. Their cover story is "free market" fixes everything. There intentions are to reduce or eliminate any form of governmental oversight over business, leaving them to exercise free reign over our economy. When they wrap all this up in the flag and the constitution it paints a rosy picture for many of the "lesser people" as former Senator Alan Simpson describes the middle class. These people are masters of manipulation and could have their own grandmothers voting to euthanize the elderly to eliminate Social Security!


A totally "free" anything has a definition. It is called anarchy. What the GOP really wants is not "freedom" for American citizens but unfettered and unregulated freedom for big business. The result of such corporate anarchy is fewer freedoms and very few protections from abuse available to the average person. As a citizen you must keep in mind that corporations do not grant you any rights and they are not obligated to follow our Constitution. Any protections "We the People" receive depend on the government standing between it's people and those who would oppress us including government itself. A totally free market is incompatible with a free society. Cuba is an example of a "totally free market system" without regulations that its citizens cannot participate in. Whether "business" is in the hands of government or the government is in the hands of business, the result for the citizen remains the same. Loss of individual freedom and protection from abuse. We do best with private business with some necessary regulations for our protection.

A corporation will serve only one master, profit. Their duty is to make as much money for their owners as possible, by any legal means possible. If this is not enough, they feel equally obligated to try to change laws so they can do what may now be illegal. Remember this paragraph as it is a very important part of the foundation for this conspiracy theory.


Let me divert your attention momentarily to the GOP political agenda, at least the public version.


  • Eliminate or privatize Social Security, the rich have so much it does not matter to them.

  • Eliminate health care reforms that protect the middle class. The rich can afford any care they need.

  • Renew tax breaks for the very rich and pay for them by eliminating services the middle class.

  • Further deregulate all business including Wall Street, Banks, Insurance and so on.
