Jim Kunstler on the current financial crisis
So, to begin this process, and to clarify the situation, I urge readers of this blog to identify the Republican Party by its new brand-name: the party that wrecked America. At least, then, we can reinstate one cardinal value into the juddering structure of what we claim to believe: that actions have consequences, that you can’t just swindle and loot a society and walk away with the swag.
The man most responsible for the financial services and banking deregulation that made today possible, fmr. Sen. Phil Gramm, is the man John McCain wants to put in charge of the whole economy.
It’s time to end the looting of this country by a tiny fanatical elite who use their extremist political philosophy to justify greed and plundering. Look, lots of them belong in prison. Once we get Obama, a centrist adult, in the White House then perhaps we can start to clean up the mess these thieves have left us. But none of that will happen with McCain in the White House as the thievery will simply continue.
