You attack Wall Street and ignore legislation that lessens restrictions? How is that possible? Did anybody even read the Times article?

Read the Rules

Plenty of people on this forum have expressed outrage over the aspects of this so called "jobs bill" that weakens financial regulations. But, we were talking about this issue weeks ago (long before the general public became informed about this). Go through some old posts, you'll find exactly what I'm talking about.

where is the link? maybe because no one pays any attention to whats really going on.. like this.. laws passed in 2008 to regulate wallstreet,, never enforced.

Yep a GREAT video. Truth being shared in government.

Then have you seen the latest ads put out by Chevron and others?

Blatant lies - because the major portion of the public is not getting the truth from media - The oil companies are touting massive numbers of jobs to be created by projects like the keystone pipe line and opening up of new off-shore drilling opportunities.

They tout this is all being done for America and the American public to pump up our supplies and reduce our prices/cost at the pumps ( they say oil for our people for our business ) what they leave out is the truth these projects are not needed for our supplies but are being pushed to drive exportation. Money in fossil fuels pockets and no change to our market.

What in THE HELL ever happened to truth in advertizing?

This is where a good lawyer or team of lawyers could have a field day suing for deceptive ads (out right lies ) or breach of promise as these approved projects have not lowered costs they have not created massive numbers of jobs, the oil is not slated for the American market place.

They are too busy complaining about Civil War monuments in the South and discussing theories about greed. If they read about it, they'd have to say that Obama is not on their side, then figure out someone better to elect, then campaign, then .... nevermind. Too much work. Let's just stick to the spectacle.

As Nietzsche said (I'm paraphrasing), people prefer gestures :)

You're referring to the Andrew Jackson post? He died long before the Civil War. As Pres he destroyed the National Bank; you would think people here would be touting him as a hero.

Tired of this whole Southern slavery thing... bigtime... to the African human beings were the only property of value. They alone are responsible for the European enslavement of their people.
