That's right! The same bank that wouldn't knock a nickel off the principle of your loan, simply turns the deed in for full credit and can then buy the property back for twenty two cents on the dollar! With zero down payment and zero interest, plus if the bank doesn't make a profit on the property in two years the government will give them a rebate on the purchase price. Aren't you glad they got government off of your back? Off your back and into the hip pocket of the banks.

You won't hear Obama talk much about that. Oh, he'll mention the banking reforms, limiting the fees banks could charge. He won't mention the new gambits the banks had put in place before the ink was dry. The new payday loans schemes begun by the major banks or the new consumer protection agency housed in the basement of a private corporation. The Miss Congeniality of consumer protection, it sounds nice but doesn't actually have the power do anything at all.

"The guiding principle (for American government) is that as long as the public is under control, everything is fine," he said. "(The traditional argument is) the powerful should gain ends by any possible means. As long as the public is kept under control, public will doesn't matter." - Noam Chomsky

But it does matter, this is unacceptable. We are talking about tens of millions of our own people. This is their life, these are their dreams and their children's dreams. Their lives and fortunes dashed by faulty short sighted economic policies embraced by both parties. Advocated by the President among his other Republican positions until it is clear that there is only one party and most of us aren't even counted, let alone considered.

In the court case of Bush Vs. Gore the plaintiff sought relief under the equal protection clause of the constitution. It was argued, that since different counties of Florida recounted ballots in different standards then a recount couldn't be fair or legal. Following with that logic if a sitting Supreme Court Justice isn't to be prosecuted for failing to report  $1.25 million in income then no other Americans can be prosecuted for failing to report income.

This case makes crystal clear that we are over the Rubicon. Obama is Bush's third term, Santa Claus would have been Bush's third term. This is a corporate fascist government, the terms liberal and conservative no longer apply, it is about the sighted and the blind. The lobbyist no longer need to call on the White House because America's corporate CEO's all ready work there.

"You do not become a 'dissident' just because you decide one day to take up this most unusual career. You are thrown into it by your personal sense of responsibility, combined with a complex set of external circumstances. You are cast out of the existing structures and placed in a position of conflict with them. It begins as an attempt to do your work well, and ends with being branded an enemy of society." Vaclav Havel

The time for silence is at an end! The time to make noise is upon us!

I who am I? Born at the pinnacle of American prosperity to parents raised during the last great depression. I was the youngest child of the youngest children born almost between the generations and that in fact clouds and obscures who it is that (more...)
