Not a Peep About Ending Wall Street Monopolies, or Monetary Reform
I wonder why?
Maybe it's due to the fact that Wall Street funds politicians.
And Bernanke just walks the footprints of Greenspan, as Citi loots the treasury, and no criminal prosecutions for HSBC, Goldman Sachs, Well Fargo, etc etc.
What happens when Goldman Sachs funds both sides? Bush picks Paulson and Obama joins Congress in passing TARP.
What happens when Citi funds both sides? Obama picks Lew and republicans and democrats in Congress fail to pass any real reform on the banks.
What happens when Boeing and Raytheon lobby Congress? They get billions in war profiteering.
What happens when KBR lobbies congress? They get billions in war profiteering.
Not a peep about stopping the provisions "allowing" them to indefinitely detain or even kill Americans without trial, evidence, nor oversight. There have been so many false allegations throughout the history of the CIA this is insane to trust them with such a high illegal authority. Khalid El-Masri is an example of an innocent person accused of being a terrorist. He ended up getting tortured for 4 months until the CIA figured out he was really just a random innocent guy from Germany. This is not acceptable. This is why we have laws and court systems; to prevent the innocent from being imprisoned and killed. This kind of lawlessness is inexcusable, especially when saying "a decade of war is coming to an end." Obviously this is a lie. Just like the signing statement was, while 3 Americans were killed that year and Bradley Manning was being indefinitely detained.
NOT A PEEP ABOUT THE FACT THAT OUR CONGRESS IS BOUGHT BY CORPORATIONS AND BANKS.
Not a peep about a constitutional amendment to reform campaign financing.
This is the state of the union: a corporate takeover.
Dylan Ratigan said it best, "We’ve got a real problem…this is a mathematical fact. Tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States of America. Democrats aren’t doing it, republicans aren’t doing it, an entire integrated system, banking, trade and taxation, created by both parties over a period of two decades is at work on our entire country right now." -funded, corrupted, and manipulated by the elite 1%
