Bet you thought I was going to write about pros-t-toots er sumthin'. Well I'm not. I'm just going to offer a quote for the day. Some guy named John wrote this over at yahoo, and I thought it worth repeating.
"The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces as public enemies all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes. Corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people "
Hallelujah Brother, and pass the pitch forks!
Don't worry, I didn't suddenly get 'ligion, but I did hang around the mother of all right tard sites for a bit last night just to see what propaganda they are spewing lately. Well surprise surprise! They were making a lame attempt at defending the AIG execs who live in a wealthy area of Conneticut. This segment of the downtrodden masses have been voicing their concerns for their personal safety lately, in the wake of claims of death threats etc. So says they. So in swoops the dead animal leader and throws a big shiny lure into the water and takes attention off the real issues and onto some great satan like entity called Acorn and of course Obama. It's all his fault you know.
Upon hearing the splash, and then seeing the shiny lure, the trout immediately assembled to give pursuit. Gawd have mercy.
I suppose it is more difficult to see properly when one is looking up through water as it would obscure things a bit, but I wish these fishies would come up for air more often and see the world as it really is. So jump little fishies. Jump for your life! While there still is clean air and sunshine to be had to help clear your little fish sized brains.
The full quote from which the excerpt above was taken, is below.
"The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, and more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces as public enemies, all who question it's methods or throw light upon it's crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the Bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe.. corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money powers of the country will endeavor to prolong it's reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed.
