draw your own conclusions, but it's really hard to dismiss it.

We are being ****ed harder than we've ever been ****ed before. Like goddamn Idi Amin hard.
I read the exact article on the 14th, I refrained from posting it cause I didnt feel like battling with complacents that dont like believing my little dances.
thanks, rep passed
PS- you found that at, uh... hmm... well... youre digging around in the tin foil blogs arent you? I wont tell
lthumbsdown: Ruhh rohh shaggy.
Looks like Bear Stearns is being bought out by J.P.Morgan, using money loaned by the fed.
So taxpayers now own an investment firm at a cost of $30B...plus the bailout money earlier in the week....
Please tell me things are not this bad.
And somebody swapped our
I love how the neo-cons have basically turned from pro free market to socialism for the wealthy/corporate.
Normally, something like this would cause me to hate the Bush administraton even more. But I've truly reached the point where I could not possibly hate the Bush administration any more.
but then the Fed operates on it's own for the most part...
I don't see how I can be expected to discuss this with someone who obviously didn't read the article in the first post.
sorry... hang on a sec...
ok.. rereading now..
ok, don't know if the spitzer-bush nexus is valid (if so, disappointing to say the least), but this is at the risk of being dismissed/undone when he makes the intellectually dishonest claim that the sub-prime lending business is racially biased when high-income minorities have more proportionate loans than similar income whites ("Dark-skinned borrowers aren't stupid they had no choice."). all things being equal - and of course they're not - the whole system is based upon credit rating. now, because cuntrywide & their ilk set up shop in low-income (read: higher risk) neighborhoods, and these high-income blacks are still living there, and banking there, limits their choice within these geographically convenient institutions, not absolutely.
are we to think the malt-liquor industry is also racist b/c more of it is offered - and purchased - in lower income neighborhoods?
as far as the main thrust of the article, there are 2 possibilities: it's exactly as palast states, and therefore repugnant to the highest degree, or he's picking & choosing which facts make for a sensational balm for his readership.
Iraq? where's that?
Dunno, I think the closest I come to believing that conspiracy is that Spitzer made a LOT of enemies going after the big guys on wall street. As a result, there were a lot of guys looking to take him down, and when a couple thousand dollars changed hands, those same people kept digging, and digging, and digging, until they got him. Nobody cared that Vitter's name was in the DC Madam's Little Black Book, and yet there's a huge investigation into Spitzer?
i don't believe vitter violated the mann act by wearing diapers, only himself
dont worry, you arent alone with that...
If true that he was slated for the meat grinder, Im sure he was aware of it, and hes a dumb ass for ordering take-out sushi so often
less iraq reporting? i blame bush!
Spitzer was taken out because he was an arrogant, hypocritical asshole (that was doing great work). He is receiving unique treatment, but not because of any specific investigation.
I also trust Paterson, based on what I've heard so far, to continue any promising investigations with nearly as much rigor as Spitzer, which further reinforces that the two aren't connected.
However, I do believe that the federal government is ****ing the American populace on an unprecedented scale. It has nothing to do with Spitzer and everything to do with corporate interests.
I find it quite interesting that whilst the US populace as a whole finds the idea of a 'world government' so abhorrent, they are doing more than any other population to cause a situation where they are ruled by one, and 'even worse' one made up on extra-national interests.
I think the neo-cons have no blinkered preference as to nationalistic pretences, they want to hasten corporate and market control. In it's purest sense I kind of agree, but the people factor makes me want to puke every time.
I don't think you have any understanding as to what happened.
The taxpayers don't own anything, except an obligation to JP Morgan to cover losses on the crappiest of the crap that Bear had.
I don't understand why this is so suprising, it's the same thing that happened to the Savings and Loan institutions when Bush SR. was VP.
Mark my word, in 16 years this will be happening again at the end of Jeb's term.
Great article, anyone have the actual link?
Did Bush Sr. do all that PLUS have the FBI look into a Gov's activities cuz that Gov was going to blow the whistle?
Don't worry it's bound to be back in the news in about a weeks time...... only 13 more to go before you hit the big 4k of dead US servicemen. (not counting the Afgan ones). :huh:
Bush senior was head of the CIA, my answer to that would be hell yeah, but who remembers.
Your point is dead on though and people need to see the Spitzer connection.
You have to have someone come in and wipe your ass for you everyday...you can't possibly be this stupid without actually being functionally impaired.
Only 8 to go now....... http://icasualties.org/oif/
