There may be some editing here but the message is the same. This is what we are all feeling and saying and here it is in a nutshell.
Dylan Ratigan loses it! This is what we all need to be standing for. This is what we are saying. This is what others need to see.
This is about all of us...

Interesting Rant. I wonder what he sees as a fix. Money out of politics? Does he imply take money away from the federal government? How far does this argument go?
Well his stance is getting the money out of political system. What he is proposing and what he is doing on his website is trying to get a constitutional amendment to remove private money out of public elections. It is his belief that if we take that away we would receive a government that is interested in governing again.
Also it should be noted he was one of the few talkingheads that acknowledged OWS when it was just a handful of students in the park.edit on 16-10-2011 by KeliOnyx because: (no reason given)
I like that idea. But you still need cash to run a campaign. Don't want the rich to be the only ones running. So how about this. You send your supports out there to get signatures between this date and that date. And for every signature you get the Feds give you one dollars for your campaign. So something along those lines. We need some people that are not from "money" to be in politics. You know what I mean?
all lobbying should be illegal, and all bills, accounts, and transactions should be posted 24/7 to the public to see and verify. those caught trying to buy politcal favor shall be exiled for eternity from this country or accept a life here paying quadruple tax duty.
“There’s a frustration with policy and a frustration that, `are things going back to business as usual,’’’ Mr. Carney said in the interview. ``If I may say, that is not going to happen, but I can understand the frustrations.’’
Demonstrations like the Occupy Wall Street protests, which will hit Canadian cities this weekend, are a “democratic expression of views’’ and “entirely constructive,’’ Mr. Carney said.
The words that Mr. Carney applies to the civil disruption carry extra weight because the Harper government is pushing for him to become the next chairman of the Financial Stability Board (FSB), a group charged with co-ordinating the overhaul of international banking regulations

Fantastic thread, S & F Jude . This guy is simply awesome - who is he? I don't know how this was aired on the MSNBC but I don't care. He gets right down to the point and doesn't care really what the others on the panel have to say. He clearly states the problem and doesn't beat around the bush whatsoever. Hopefully we start seeing more and more people in the media going off on 'rants' such as this.
