The MSM has successfully done .gov’s dirty work for lo these many years. Their valuable assistance? Framing the debate (aka “true lies”). Through their controlled channels, anything the kleptocrats don’t want to get through, doesn’t. Alternative voices with better solutions that would benefit taxpayers never even have a chance to get on camera.
Obamacare was framed for the benefit the insurance companies and big pharma. Invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan were framed to benefit military contractors and oilcos. TARP was to save capitalism (heh, well your 401k, but actually banker bonuses).
This past weekend’s ECB bailout (I dub it TARP Deux: We have a Bazooka II) is a reaction to keeping the entire worldwide economy from going tilt. Not exactly a positive purpose- borrowing money to pay off bad debts just can’t be good for anyone, ultimately. But the market doesn’t seem think so, for now.
Next up: entitlement programs.
The entitlement program debate is- haven’t you heard?– that Soc Sec and Medicare are going broke. Soon. So, good people of these United States, you’re going to have to cut back your expectations because obviously the ONLY solution is to cut these programs back. Or maybe eliminate them entirely.
Oh and by the way, .gov fully intends to confiscate your 401k and IRA too, in order to pay out what they can. It’s okay if you have to eat dog food (hey, aren’t you a patriot?), but why should retired .gov employees have to suffer like you, after having sacrificed a chance to make it rich in the private sector in order to toil in the public sector.
This video does a nice job of revealing how they operate, it is kind of an inside look at how kleptocrats and their cronies work in tandem to rob you.
