I said it during the election and I will say it again to those who think Obama is out to destroy America or other such deranged fantasies...
If the powers that be thought that Obama was a real threat to their vested interests (screw yours or mine...theirs is all that concerns them) he would
have never gotten so far as to win the nomination, much less the presidency.
And if anything proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt was the speech he gave on Wall Street.
I have a great deal of respect for Bernie Saunders and wish there were more like him in congress...he and the late Paul Wellstone gave sane faces to
the liberal left (were that there were some sane faces for the conservative right) and of course Saunders is right.
There are guilty parties on Wall street who should be in jail...if you or I tried such scams our heads would be on a pike someplace.
No bank...insurance company...investment house or corporation should ever be allowed to get so large and so unregulated that their fall would so
adversely effect the national economy...it should be common sense but it isn't.
Even the head of the FDIC has suggested that the big banks be broken up and prevented from getting so large again.
I don't mind the bailout of GM and company since their failure would affect Joe Blow down at Yokihoma tires the next town over and their failure
would put several hundred people out of work...with hundreds if not thousands of similar scenes played out across the nation...
But Wall street bankers and investors do not actually do anything. They are parasites on the national economy which would find new ways to manage
money should they fail.
But Obama is not going to rock that boat...he owes them too much.
