The banking and corporate masters (crony capitalist fascists) control both major parties behind the scenes. They keep us distracted with left vs. right while giving us the illusion that voting for one of the other parties will solve things. It won’t.
Dept of Education orders SWAT team against someone who defaulted on a student loan (and kicks down door of wrong house with no apology offered)
Incidentally, it is (theoretically) unconstitutional to imprison someone for debt. This means such an event is not a criminal act, it’s a civil one, which in turn means – at least if the government gave a damn about The Constitution – they had no cause to use “law enforcement” in this sort of circumstance at all.
Of course when it comes to government, the Constitution is an inconvenience.
JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon says the recovery has halted because of – wait for it – strict bank regulation. Apparently the banksters feel they haven’t been permitted to steal enough so they want our mostly unenforced laws and regulations gutted even further. Most of them should be in prison and someday let’s hope they are.
Don’t expect Obama to speak out against Dimon. They’ve been buddies for two decades and Obama is just totally ok with letting the banksters do whatever they want. Just ask Charles Gasparino.
Neither party is doing anything to stop the erosion of civil rights and liberties or the looting by the banks.
