Corporate Imperialism

''U.S. "Stock Market Is Rigged" (Essential Video) :

''Steve Kroft reports on a new book from Michael Lewis, "Flash Boys," that reveals how a group of unlikely characters discovered how some high speed traders work the stock market to their advantage.

''U.S. stock ownership is at a record low and less than half of Americans trust banks and financial services. And in the last two weeks, the New York attorney general and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission in Washington, have both launched investigations into high-frequency computerized stock trading that now controls more than half the market.'' !

The practices persist & not one USUK Senior Bankster in 'NYLON' has been sanctioned yet Occupiers have been viciously repressed. Bernie Madoff only went to jail 'cause he ripped off the rich !!

''Corporate Imperialism'' = High Finance Kaputalism = Totalitarian Crapitalism, ergo ... Viva O.W.S. !!!

''The organized post-1945 destruction of the New Deal coalition - unionists, socialists and communists - and the failure to replace those organizations help explain the muted reaction to the bailouts, austerity and other anti-democratic policies pursued by US governments at all levels.

''The post-1945 destruction of the New Deal coalition - unionists, socialists and communists - keeps influencing Americans' lives. Today, its effects help explain why popular actions have been so muted against US economic changes since the 1970s and especially against the bailouts and austerity since the crash of 2008. Those effects also suggest what could reignite sustained protests and demands for change.'' from :

Honestly, its the regulations DON'T EXIST that are screwing main street. The banks are holding everyone to "the same standard", which may be true, however this is actually a bad thing because it does not reward responsible behavior fairly. Banks that have first liens on loans are twisting the screws on the homeowners during a re-fi while their buddies steal billions on second lien deals that they then default on.
