The Global Musings of an Educated Man.....vol.129
According to the US Geological Survey, there have been 22 earthquakes this year so far, of a magnitude of 6.0 or higher. 22!!!Today a 6.9-6.5 earthquake has struck off of the coast of Taiwan. Are you freaking kidding me?
A volcano has recently erupted and caused billions of dollars in economic turmoil due to it's troublesome ash floating over Europe causing delays in air travel that is now backlogged 5 days. But we shouldn't be worried, right?
This has nothing to do with the correlation of December 21st, 2012? Or does it? Maybe it is time to start hunkering down and building up some rations. I know I need to get glasses before it hits the fan. Cause when it does, I'm not going to be able to find saline solution or disinfectant around anywhere. No joke.
6 Banks in the United States control 60% of the nations GDP. 60%!!!! Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, Bank of America and J.P. Morgan Chase. All that the financial crisis of the last two years has done, is create a monopoly of wealth concentrated into fewer and fewer hands.
We are in the midst of a ever expanding Oligarchy which is quite simply put, political power derived from economic influence.
Banks are spending a million dollars a day to lobby against any kind of reform against Wall Street, and the only thing the tea-partiers seem to care about is that the government is getting too big, letting in too many foreigners illegally and that they are reaching into my health care??? Are we serious?
Pay attention people. Health care is great so that we are going to cover those that can't cover themselves, but seriously, the real crooks are the ones that seem to still be writing the rules around Washington. The person they are most afraid of is an informed and active citizen. So get up and get educated.
If corporations want to be able to contribute limitless amounts to campaigns and be considered citizens by the Supreme Court, then they too should be held responsible like citizens to the 3 strike rule. How many corporations would be still around if they had to serve the time for the crimes they have committed against innocent citizens??? They shouldn't be able to hoard season tickets to sporting and entertainment events and then write them off as a business expense, and then be allowed to contribute any amount they wish to make sure the Congressmen or women vote the way they want. They can't have it both ways. Joe the Plumber and Susie Six Pack don't get it that way.
And another thing....the internet should also remain neutral. Verizon, Comcast and AT&T shouldn't be allowed to term it "information service" and thus have it not fall under the regulations of the FCC. If they do get their way, the speed of your internet access will be based on how much money you spend. Life in the fast lane. Not equal for all.
Justice sometimes means, Just-Us.
