Alright guys, lets look at recent history and see if this is all a set-up as Proto is implying:
Lets face it you do not get protests if the sheeple are fat and happy. It is only when jobs, food and money is scare that people go looking for a
Here is the evidence of a carefully orchestrated set-up
- facilitated the Leveraged buyouts/Hostile takeovers of the 1980's that wiped out our successful industry by transferring the firms
equity to Corporate Raiders and banks. Crippled the firms had to make major cut backs in wages and benefits . Most were dismantled and shipped over
finished the job by ratifying the World Trade Organization and NAFTA, and smoothing China's entry into the WTO. This exported 20%
of our manufacturing jobs in 14 years.
As if that was not enough Clinton also set up the housing bubble/burst.
After the Great Depression, several laws were put in place to prevent another depression. The 1933 and 1934 Security and Exchange laws, The McFadden
Act of 1927, The Glass-Steagall Act or Banking Act of 1933. Also Bank Holding Company Act of 1956.
Clinton's laws Negating above: Riegle-Neal Interstate Banking and Branching Efficiency Act of 1994 and Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999
More pro-banking Clinton laws:
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991:Allowed big banks to gobble up smaller banks more easily.
Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 and RTC Completion Act - Housing and business loans to minorities.
Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 200 - left CDSs unregulated and set up
AIG bailout and Foreclosuregate.
Bush of course was responsible for the AIG bailout as well as the Patriot act and other pro- "Martial Law" stuff
Then there is Obama.
Obama's "loan modification program"
enticed marginal mortgage holders into a trap. They were put on a "trial" modification, strung
along for months with "lost paperwork" and then handed a whopping big bill and thirty days to pay or the banks would foreclose. Mortgages with one
or more CDSs paid for by tax payers AIG bailout money rewarded the banks with payment in full AND the property guaranteeing the banks did not WANT TO
I have already pointed out several times the change to the
tax code for 1099's
and the new
food law are not going to help the economy in 2012. My post
Sure looks like there is a set-up with two Democratic and two Republican presidents helping it along.
You also have all the UN/ Elite Foundation funded/controlled NGOs that suck up and train naive young activists.
Again in the Farm Wars we were defeated by the propaganda put out by these "Well Respected" organizations like Organic Consumers Assoc. Food & Water
Watch and the Consumers Union. I even called and talked to various smaller groups and was told point blank that I was an "Unknown" and therefore
they would have to go with the opinion of Organic Consumers Assoc. since they trusted them. Actually doing the research for themselves was too much
effort. No wonder bills are now hundreds if not thousands of pages long!
So again I have to agree with Proto. We are being SUCKERED!
