grrherha! loved it. im about ready to join that rag tag drum corps

i am sending emails to my representatives.

1. vote NO on paulsons proposal. no bailout. let the chips fall.

2. CEO's, CFO's etc return the big exit package money

3. prosecute where there is evidence of fraud and send these bastards to jail.

seriously. this is it. time to stand
i dont think we should pay our taxes. imagine if you could get everyone to do it.


i found this today:

"The real owners are the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own and control the corporations. They've long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, the judges. And they own all the big media companies so they control just about all the news and information you get to hear. They spend billions every year lobbying to get what they want. Well we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everyone else. They don't want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't want well informed, well educated people. That's against their interests. They want obedient workers." - George Carlin

Imagine if we all refused to pay our taxes AND to vote. That would be a clear signal of no confidence.

I think, too, it's important to realize that what happened here is not the fault of capitalism. Our economic system is as far from capitalism as I am from running a marathon on Crocs.

I'm writing, too.

i agree! i was counting on capitalism! but my capitalism is clearly not the structure that the masters of the universe work within. would you agree with that?

K9 said...

"this is not your daddys capitalism"

THAT would be another great t-shirt you two!

If nothing else, we need to figure out a way to make money from this stinking pile of krap we've been handed. THAT's capitalism.

p.s. big heart out to George Carlin.

We can start a tee shirt line – "Slogans for the Revolution." I envision our logo, something Charlie's Angel-esque, three gals in silhouette – one with a gun, the other with boxing gloves, the other with a Rottie – or angry chicken! – on a leash.

Moi (one post back) on the Feds...heh, funny ya should ask, mah dear...yep, they manipulate the rates and who is they, exactly? Well, if ya' like conspiracy theories: they put Ezra Pound in a nut ward to shut him up on the topic Fed.

The cabal that meets in Davos, the International Bank of Settlements.

it ain't no bedtime story.

(Doan put no squirrels on the Revolution's Tee shirts)

yeah, capitalism's probably never been given a good go, same as communism, same as Christianity. problem with communism is that it denies human nature. problem with capitalism/free-market approach is that it embraces it.
