I think we all can agree on one thing: The. Economy. Sucks. Royally. What can be done to fix it - and what SHOULD be done?


In this week's BRUTALLY HONEST commentary, David 2 - co-host of ShockNet Radio's American Heathen and host of BRUTALLY HONEST on ShockNet - has an answer: http://brutallyhonestcolumn.blogspot.com/2011/06/week-of-06062011.html

Too many caps.

His answer seems to be: Blame the President. Also, while I agree that we need to fix TBTF, it has very little to do with how the economy is doing right now. And honestly DOES HE HAVE A CLUE HOW JOBS ARE CREATED (see how annoying that is)?

In summary, it's about as articulate as a baby crying, and bears a lot of semblance.
Too many people think the president is a magician that can just "fix" everything. The president does not have much actual power, especially when blocked by congressmembers.
Negative.  Sorry not buying it.  Problem here is not with either party (sadly - the two party system because of FPTP) but the fact that somehow no one we vote in to office has any political "balls".  I mean, we know that taxes will have to pay for the type of healthcare Obama proposes and I am half tempted to become a woman and start a defense contracting business solely to get lucrative contracts.  This is not misogyny or sour grapes but simply that it seems the almighty dollar trumpets so loud our politicians are left drooling on themselves for more campaign contributions rather than doing the people's business.  This is everyone's problem and Obama did not "create" it.
When I think about all the things Obama does, I look at John McCain and Sarah Palin and I feel a whole lot better about the President.  He's not the best.  I often think of him as Reagan lite, but he's better than the alternative.

Crucial thing to remember is that the people running the economy don't care about other people, only themselves. 50% of the wealth in the US is controlled by 1% of Americans. The federal reserve is a private bank with the power to create money and lend it to other banks or the US treasury with compound interest. Those who own a share of the fed by virtue of being descended from the traitors who created it are therefore infinitely wealthy - above money itself. This system powered by big lies has spread all over the world - the main public branches being the IMF and World Bank. Obama is simply a de facto public figure head, chosen by the elite for numerous reasons beneficial to them. He is black, so the black vote is his automatically, he is a great orator/lair, and most importantly he claims to lead the progressive cause, yet the real effect on the movement is one reminiscent of divide and conquer.


Both parties were in favor of bailing out the corrupt banks and large corporations, both serve the elite not the people. The political duopoly is even better for the elite than a one party state because it can give the appearance of choice and change, absorbing much of the populaces vague rage over being fracked hard.
