This is no disrespect to the great journalists who have been reporting the cold hard facts about local and state politics, but what I find particularly frustrating is the protectionism of these reporters. What I mean when I say "protectionism" is that these people rarely name names or assign blame to any one individual/s unless their crime was so egregious i.e Bernie Madoff, that it is irrefutable main stream news.
Reading the paper today, for example, I was once again livid with the big banks who not only accepted Trillions of dollars at the expense of American workers, but refuse to hire them because we will not work as cheaply as an imported foreigner.
The Connecticut Post who investigated this hurtful practice, said that Americans were not considered for these jobs because Foreigners come with " a better education, and are willing to take less pay." The U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service confirmed that tens of thousands of H1 visas were being requested by the banks to import these workers.
Banks manipulate the system by using the "Equal Pay" requirements of less technical positions and then upscale their imported employees into jobs that are a misrepresentation of the "dummed down" paperwork submitted to the INS. Rarely does the INS even enforce this because there is too much collusion between all parties involved.
Americans still seem to be asleep, and the President of the United States Obama is still planning to respond to the threat of "total economic collapse" if he fails to remit another 890 Billion to the "banksters". But in reality this is really 1.3 trillion when we add the interest demanded by the privately held Federal Reserve Bank.
While our leaders in Washington are up in arms over the lack of transparency of the first 350 Billion, an amount that was surpassed by nearly 1.7 Trillion according to a lawsuit filed by Bloomberg and MSNBC, the "Banksters" continue to ruthlessly extort the American people without conscience.
Executive pay raises and bonuses are being paid to the tune of billions, and of course they cannot return it after the fact that would no be right! This is the prevailing philosophy of our "reasonable leaders" who ironically have been the recipients of millions of dollars in contributions from these banks.
Clearly the blame for this fiasco should be laid on Bush, Bernake, Paulson, Sen. Dodd, Sen. Frank, and now Obama for choosing to allow this corrupt system to prosper. This is a system that was enacted in 1913 under the Federal Reserve Act and has given Americans a year over year hidden tax by way of inflation. Our U.S. dollar from 1913 to present day has devalued by nearly 98%! This devaluation accelerated when Richard Nixon scrapped the Gold Standard making the Federal Reserve notes in our pockets and bank accounts nothing more than paper and ink and computer entries.
Americans have no choice but engage this system, because there is no other legal median of exchange. As long as the U.S. government can continue to control us, and the military with with this "paper and ink" system, the country will continue its slide into deeper recession and economies will not prosper.
China has called U.S. debt "noncollectable" and their dollar reserves are viewed as somewhat of a joke. Oil producing nations, are protesting the Dollar as the basis of exchange for oil because they anticipate it will be worthless in the not so distant future. These countries are so upset with the dollar that they protest at the risk of military invasion by the U.S. who sees these nations as an "axis of evil."
The public has dramatically driven up the price of Gold over the last few years to as high as $1,000.00 per ounce. Some investment firms in the public sector have been feverishly calling people with a very persuasive argument that the over printing of U.S. dollars will cause Gold to skyrocket to as high as $2,000.00 per ounce in the not so distant future.
According to Ron Paul, who along with every Republican in Congress voted against the Obama plan, said it is riddled with "Pork" and will not help solve anything with our economy. Ron Paul said Americans need to be protecting the value of the Dollar not funding the same "banksters" that created the collapse of our economy in tandem with the politicians who forced American workers to compete with global wages.
Americans are FED UP with this and they are waking up at an alarming rate. Gold sales are up, gun sales have gone off the charts and when the time comes to fight back we could expect people to defend our country one home at a time. This is truly one of the saddest periods in American history with the greatest level of betrayal the American public has ever seen. There is a reason why Congress has a 9% approval rating, its because 91% of Americans see Congress as the Terrorists who are destroying our country one "Bill" and one "Trade Agreement" at a time.
If you are fed up with this system, buy a Gun, buy Gold, buy Storable Food and Water and demand nothing of a bank. Destroy your Credit Cards, avoid writing checks, pay off your loans, refuse loans, and keep a minimal amount of cash. The sooner you understand that Banks are the enemy, the better off you will be.
