… the economy. And how the politicians and bankers are totally wrecking it. On purpose, it would seem. I mean– hey, why not, right? They have everything to gain from the economy going on its head, right? Just like the stock market crash 100 years ago. Oh sure, that was a bad time for the individual people with their little portfolios and individual retirement accounts and all. Farmers suffered, small business suffered, small banks suffered. But the Big Banks, the Big Investors? They prospered. During the Great Depression, some banks failed that shouldn’t have failed, paving the way for other, bigger banks to rise to the top. Oh I know– one man’s misfortune is another man’s fortune… but it was the little people that suffered. The bankers and credit card companies got their “stimulus,” didn’t they? It’s all so frightfully maddening, the whole of it. What’s happened to the country?? It’s so evident that our form of government is no longer “of the people, by the people, for the people.” We are serfs in our own land, and no matter what we say we want in government, the politicians all do their own thing, without any regard.
Part of the problem is that our country is largely ruled by unelected bureaucrats. The government has set up numerous, impermeable bureaus that regulate a heck of a lot of our lives with absolutely no accountability to Americans: IRS, TSA, NSA, FBI, CIA, NASA, DOHS, etc etc etc. The Federal Reserve really gets my goat. I don’t believe for a second that they are bumbling around, not knowing what they are doing and making “oopsie” mistakes. Their “ineptness” seems more like calculated agendas to line the pockets of global bankers with power at the expense of our country. Doesn’t it seem *kinda* suspicious that the government hands out trillions of borrowed U.S. dollars secretly to various people/companies/corporations? And then has the gall to say old folks won’t get their Social Security checks because the federal government can’t pass a balanced budget? What the heck is going on here? And that’s just scratching the surface!
Anyway, I already know everything is going to **** in a handbasket. The Powers That Be have been bold enough to announce it from time to time. They’ve reduced manufacturing, dairy farms, and ruined our currency. They have raised taxes and the cost of utilities like water, gasoline and oil to squeeze us out of our homes and into debt, where we are slaves to the banks. I don’t think it’s a big secret, what they are doing. Honestly, I’m not too concerned if I have no TV and only one car… I just don’t want to be a slave to the bankers and I don’t want my liberties eroded.
Why can’t some people be happy with their billions and billions of dollars, and live on their estates in contentment? Why must they rule the world, control the population, and regulate our every action? Why can’t they leave us alone in peace? As I think about it, it’s obvious that the “old fashioned” wars over land and sea are a thing of the past. It’s now a war to conquer the human mind and soul through the economies of the nations. Sheesh.
