BushCo: Indictable Criminals

"This was a purposeful crime.  There was conspiracy to commit criminal acts and these felonies were carried out – over many years– while the people we elected to represent and protect us were busy eating caviar and drinking French Champagne in their mansions in Washington, Maryland, Virginia, and New York." Jeff Koopersmith speaks out about the crime of the century.

September 21, 2008 – Geneva (apj.us) – I'm not sure that any of us have thought about the underlying reasons why Washington is just about to follow the lead of some of the biggest morons in the nation: George W. Bush, Henry Paulson, and – from his secure spider hole – Vice President "Dick" Cheney.

Let me start by stating that I am as dumb as the next guy.  I bought into the world of greed and averting my eyes from the poor.  I live a pompous lifestyle and pay a bitter for it. 

However, I have never done so on the backs of man poorer than myself nor will I.  This does not excuse me from what I should have known better – that every dime in my pocket was taken from someone else, somewhere on earth.

hat’s basic economics – remember that.

Do you, my fellow idiots, realize what Bush and his posse are proposing?

Forget about the numbers the President threw around on Saturday, 20 September.  The $700 billion to save the crooks and skank bankers on Wall Street is just the tip of the poison spear.  We are forgetting about “Fanny” and “Freddie,” the absurdly named private corporations that Bush nationalized last week.  We are also forgetting about Bear Stearns and the unreal bailout of investment banks and humongous insurance companies who were co-conspirators in these crimes.

Do you know what an investment bank is?  It is a fancy name for a money pimp.  Investment banks do not do much more than suck people into investments which these banks underwrite (with other people's money, of course) and then float lower grades of stock in these companies to fools like you and me on the stock exchanges. 

It is Las Vegas, and the odds are about the same.

Sometimes they are lucky and many times they are not. 

Investment Banks caused the 1929, 1987 and the following mini-crashes with their pie-in-the-sky predictions about the Internet.  They have destroyed the nation's airlines and whatever little passenger rail transportation we've had in the USA.  They have propped up auto-makers who have been selling bad jokes as cars since 1975 or earlier.  They have been sitting right in the private toilets of every member of the house and Senate feeding them lies, campaign cash, and bribes since the turn of the 20th Century.

Here's the authentic number: not $700 billion, not $900 billion.

It is $12 TRILLION!

That's right – that's what these morons are about to do: sandbag you and your kids and their kids with a debt that now equals nearly $35,000.00 dollars owed by every single individual who lives in the United States, and it will end up being a lot more.

Let me repeat this – $35,000 (or more) for every man, woman and child in America that must be paid, and with interest.

To make that clearer – Bush is about to indebt an average family of 4 with $120,000 in taxes due and payable, plus interest in order to bail out the thieves on Wall Street.

Moreover, don't make the mistake thinking that the reason Washington will go along is to somehow "save you from trouble" – it's far more sinister than that.  They are doing this to continue the vicious cycle of greed and out and out pornographic avarice that is consuming our nation and others like us, as does a virulent cancer.

Meanwhile, I have not heard a single peep out of these cretins about indicted the people responsible for this – the biggest monetary crime ever perpetrated in the history of mankind.

There were no mistakes made here.  The little people didn’t lie about their income and make the innocent bankers go bust.

This was a purposeful crime.  There was conspiracy to commit criminal acts and these felonies were carried out – over many years – while the people we elected to represent and protect us were busy eating caviar and drinking French Champagne in their mansions in Washington, Maryland, Virginia, and New York.

Even as the sky was falling (and it has been for many years) these felons – and they are felons – were taking $20 million dollar yearly salaries, hundreds of millions in "bonuses" and yanking everyone they could – around the earth – into their evil web of deceit.

It's a wonder that Europe hasn't declared war on us.  Most of the rest of the poor have in words if not deeds.

Did you hear the Moron Preznit yesterday?  "Uh, uh I first thought I should let the markets take caare of this…"

My God, if it was not so tragic I would be laughing. 

"The markets?" 

Was he speaking about the same markets that drove the average price of a decent one bedroom apartment in New York to more than a million dollars or the price of a Manhattan townhouse as high as $65 million?  Was he talking about the markets that have driven hundreds of millions of people around the globe into starvation?  Was he talking about the markets who took an 8,000 sorta well made American car and made it into a $60,000 piece of garbage in just twenty years?  Was he talking about the same markets that delivered tens of billions in QUARTERLY profits to sheiks and oil barons while a family on welfare began to pay $5.00 a gallon for gas just to get to work?  Oh, perhaps he was talking about the markets that make a decent steak cost $35-45 a pound or a half-full box of Wheaties five or six bucks.

Are we all insane?

Is it truly worth this toll – our souls – just for the chance – the one in 3 million chance that we might get rich?

The odds are better in a lottery.

Now the war mongering crook Bush and his gaggle of incompetents have us by the throats.  Most of us cant's even balance our checkbooks let alone explain what a derivative is – and that's what these criminals are counting on – that you will be struck "dumb" and simply go along with anything that might ease your pain, and the pain of your family and friends. That’s what the media is doing is it not.  They have no idea what they are talking about – but they do know that their bosses are part of the bunch of hooligans.

Bush and all his gangsters may have believed in free and open markets for them – but one need only watch what they did at the various world finance meetings to realize that open markets mean this: We get in – you don’t.

The majority of the world's population knows that what western capitalism has become in less than a decade, is some grotesque black comedy that has been butchering millions while we opened just another bottle of Bordeaux, or the really dumb opened a bottle of third rate wine from Napa that they paid 600% too much for.

The system isn't working and it never could have.  There will never be support necessary from all the people on earth to hold up a scheme where only several hundred million people live in nice houses while several billions live in shoddier than garbage dumps.

It's time to wake up and taste the venom.  We Americans can still have wonderful lives because we've all, deep in our heart-of-hearts have found that a brilliant life has nothing to do with money as long as we have the basics – a roof, refrigerator, friends, and family who we love and who love us.

Sure it's fun and self-satisfying to spend $65,000 for an Hermes purse, but wouldn't it be a greater act to spend that same $65,000 to provide 15 small concrete houses with at least running cold water, two windows and a floor to a few families in Sudan?

As they used to say in the old time gangster movies – "The jig is up!"  It's time to change, to raise our expectations and not continue to lower them as Gucci, Gulfstream, and Rolls Royce would have you do.

There is nothing very elevating about being filthy rich except to a small or bigoted person – that's why it's called "filthy" rich.

The President of the United States – only to temporarily save a broken system, and one demolished by greed, is about to put us in debt by 87% of the total United States GDP as measured by the International Monetary Fund.  Of 180 nations, America has by far the largest GDP balanced by purchasing power.  The U.S. GDP is, today, more than $14 trillion dollars – twice that of China and 7 times that of England or France.  We rank number one in GDP, but borrowing nearly 90% of that GDP from the American taxpayers – plus interest – is a blueprint for doom.

Remember that well-known thousands-year-old warning?
