fact...why? Your politicians are showing you why!
If you think the rest of the world is going to get out of this unscathed think again. I am not sure which glorious paradise of fiscal frugality you
live in, you did not regale us with that bit of info, but I am willing to guess that the leaders in your country have been playing a very similar sort
Our country is in crisis because somewhere along the line we lost our democracy to corporate interests. They are, as you have pointed out, selfish,
corrupt, uncaring for humanity and human suffering, short sighted, ruthless and, ultimately incompetent. However, if you think in this global
marketplace that those same forces are not at work in your own backyard, I would say you are sorely mistaken.
Multinational corporations have no loyalty to a country. They care not a whig for the people, the culture, the sovereignty of any nation. When they
have finished taking all the American people have to give, where precisely do you think these bloodsuckers are off to next? I bet they are already
there. Just waiting.
