I didn't make this, so it is worth watching.

It IS worth watching !!! You are right !! It's bloody interesting ! & come on 'frf', don't get down in the mouth and keep calling it like you see it BUT do try to give some 'left field' stuff a chance too ! Here you go :

You have done good work here on AGW, Paul Buchheit, that excellent 'Park Avenue' Doc etc. etc. and your comments may irk and annoy sometimes (often even, lol) - but it took guts to do that video so my hat's off - despite my really not liking Hitlary Clinton !!! 'Universal Healthcare' - there's another two words we can agree upon, right ?!! Oh yeah, pat the dog for me too !

The only thing I'm down in the mouth about is the death of OWS, as it focuses its attention on the failings of the left while ignoring the actions of the right. It will lose all broad support and whither away and that is a damn shame because wealth inequality is about the only problem that matters at this point given that failure to address it will make all other efforts futile.

When surgeons are cutting for sandwiches, do you really think they will be done fighting labor costs?

As the SCOTUS moves to allow states to decide who should vote, along with deigning the public the right to match the wealthy dollar for dollar and of course there is no limit that can be placed on what the wealthy can spend. Given all of that it does get me down in the mouth that OWS would rather piss and moan about Obama, than address the real enemy.

OWS is a broad church with many issues considered relevant so no, you are wrong imo. The fkn SCOTUS is a huge problem and they have become Corporate Enablers these days, thereby proving :

The problem is actually bigger than ''wealth inequality'' - which of course is a massive problem but think howTF did things get to that serious state of affairs ? An utter corporate and plutocrat designed erosion of 'the social contract' and basic ethics, if you ask me. Ergo see :

I know that you will make we regret bumping your post and replying but I am a bit of a sucker for lost or desperate causes - so what the hell, eh ?

Here's how it works, first you equate money with freedom, that's not hard to do, ever hear of "fuck you" money? then you keep the focus on any restriction on the use of money as a restriction of freedom (that should sound familiar), then ensure to the extent possible that the money made with money is the least taxed of all money, then do all you can to pass the max amount of money to your offspring, and pesto you got the new modern Monarchy. The world restored to the most stable form of government it has ever known, after all how long did Rome the Empire last as compared to the Republic?
