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.
