Arguing with those who refuse to see is utterly pointless... at this point I agree with one comment bush made in the early days of the war on
"You're either with us or against us!"
Now as an awakened and angry member of the increasingly opressed and underpaid working class I see new police forces formed with money my local
library could have used to buy books or (GASP!!!) That my local police force could use rather than cutting it's patrols by a large percentage and
grounding it's helicopters because of lack of funding) Instead federales beholden to non elected officials in a chain of command that can in times of
declared national emergency SUPERCEDE civilian authority get gee whiz tech and carte blanche SUPPOSEDLY all to protect federal property?
OK and net censorship disguised as a corporate strategy to increase revenue of
this is just a business decision too right? To paraphrase what is in this article it details the confirmed plans of two canadian
telecomm giants to turn their ISP service into something akin to cable television where a subscription gives you access to a pool of ISP selected
sites and visiting others costs extra every time you do so!!
While I can see why the increasingly unwieldy and totally inept mega corporate conglomos love this idea and it feeds into their idea that any business
model they can't compete with should be legislated out of existence, and if that doesn't work they band together and just find a way to deny these
biz models any real market penetration. But ....
If you're dumb enough to believe that it's sound financial policy guiding this move you're unforgiveably stupid. You probably also believe bear
stearns and other mega entities are too big to fail without taking down the economy and therefore it's ok to use federal funding (your tax dollars
MORONS!!) to "bail" them out. Whereas I've done the research all you main streamers constantly harangue us CT'ers to do and found that this shell
game has happened many times before
(can you say .com crash or the demise of the big 3 auditting firms when they conspired with big business to over inflate profit margins etc and very
nearly caused an economic implosion in the 80's which btw led to the current crop of regulatory bodies which have AGAIN miraculously FAILED to alert
us to the subprime fiasco because of their increased ties to the corporations they were supposed to be preventing from overstating the rewards while
ignoring the risks!!)
Then again if I knew that I could play fast and loose with other peoples livelihoods with the sublime security of knowing that federal fiat currency
would be issued by the truckload to cover my mistakes because I'm TOO BIG TO FAIL... I'd probably have a moonbase built and be totally profitable,
but then again at the end of the day my goal in life is to make the world a better place ... not to ensure the continuity of a class of moneyed idle
But keep believing if you must that all is ok cognitive dissonance is painful enough to not be blunted by prozac.
