    The article is somewhat biased (definitely biased against the “economic elite” – can’t say I blame him) but the data cited is nothing short of alarming, especially the per capita incarceration rate. This really presents a good picture of America today, assuming the data is accurate.

    The economic elite have robbed us all. The amount of suffering in the United States of America is literally a crime against humanity

    "The American oligarchy spares no pains in promoting the belief that it does not exist, but the success of its disappearing act depends on equally strenuous efforts on the part of an American public anxious to believe in egalitarian fictions and unwilling to see what is hidden in plain sight." - Michael Lind, To Have and to Have Not

    We all have very strong differences of opinion on many issues. However, like our founding fathers before us, we must put aside our differences and unite to fight a common enemy.

    It has now become evident...

  5. It is all true. I believe Obama is nothing more than a puppet for the likes of folks like Buffet, Gates, Tata, Emanual - et al, who truly believe that by the end of all this we will be willing to work for so little that we will be able to compete with countries like China, India, Mexico etc. etc. And, they honestly believe that it's for our own good.
    Forget Socialism, this is Imperialistic Bull S**t at its finest. Got any ideas how to avoid it?
    For more interesting reading Goggle "The Royal Scam". Sorry, I don't have the link.
  6. Interesting website, looks like there is a great article on how the internet is destroying our lives after being hijacked by corporations.

  8. Somethimes I wonder...

    Ford is up 1000% in one year.

    Nobody stopped me from buying it at the lows.

    So I am not smart enough to be true elite I guess.
  9. It's not really about being smart enough, it's about being in on the scam. You, me, the masses in general could have made the play with our best guess. Some did, most didn't. Then there are the orchastrators of the whole mess. They don't have to guess, they know.
